Great Way to Learn About Old San Juan
Maureen_L, May 2023
We booked this tour in May 2023. The tour was very informative. We learned about the history and culture of Old San Juan. We also got to see many of Old San Juan's hidden treasures that we would not have otherwise seen if we toured the area on our own. My only critique would be that I wished the tour ended where it began.
Great History Lesson

Harry was great! A very knowledgeable guide. I'm not a church guy, but the 3 churches we visited were awe inspiring. The architecture, the several hundred years old frescas were beautiful. There was so much to see and so much to learn about Old San Juan. I could go again.
Nice historic tour

Señor Cuevas was absolutely excellent for my children ranging from 9-14. I felt it was not only educational yet a workout. Great investment of time.
Tour of Old San Juan with Harry.
Ron_H, Feb 2023
Harry was a great tour guide who provided at the beginning an outline of what was to be covered . He was very informative and easy to understand. The tour gave us a glimpse into the history of Old San Juan and Puerto Rico as well as an outline of the city and where to explore.
The guide did a great job...
Laura_S, Feb 2023
The guide did a great job staying on track and providing details about the area. Very informative and I would recommend.
Learning can be accomplished just by walking!
Geannease_M, Jan 2023
I was going to cancel the tour since my friend was not in the best health that morning. I am so GLAD I did not cancel! The tour guide made the experience was worth getting up early to attend. Plus he made sure everyone stayed together since that day was part of the Sebastian festival (I didn't know the festival took place during this time). I learned a lot about Puerto Rico and have been passing on this knowledge to my co-workers making them want to check it out for their next vacation!
Great tour guide Harry
