Juan was a fantastic tour guide, he was funny and we really learned a lot about San Juan and Puerto Rican history. The sites were beautiful and he was extremely attentive making sure everyone was together and safe. He helped me get up curbs and steep hills he was extremely kind.
A great stroll through old San Juan.
Jeffrey_M, May 2023
Juan Carlos was awesome. He explained so much in just over 2 hours. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. Besides explaining everything, he was an amazing gentlemen. Checking on everyone on the tour as it was starting to get hot and even carrying baby carriages to help people with babies. Amazing guide with a wealth of knowledge and a great attitude. Thanks.

If you like to know the history of Puerto Rico this is the tour to take. Very knowledgeable. I went to places and temples that i wouldn’t have gone if it was not for the tour guide.
William_H, May 2023
This was the worst city history walking tour we have been on. The guide had more information on other countries than he shared about Old San Juan.
A Great Tour

Our guide, Leo, was excellent. He knows the history of the city and took the time to answer any questions. He also provided great recommendations for lunch. I highly recommend this tour.

Fun tour! Great recommendations
Paulette_B, Apr 2023
Thank you Leo for such a fun tour! It was a great group, some of us went out for drinks after. Leo also provided an extensive list of restaurants, including 9 or 10 vegan/veggie places! I also feel more familiar with Old San Juan now and will keep exploring further!
Nice tour of the city
Marjorie_T, Apr 2023
Juan Carlos was an excellent guide. He was funny and knowledgeable. We walked all over the old city.
Great Tour of Old San Juan with Leo!
Jonathan_A, Apr 2023
Me and my wife had a great time and learned a lot! We had a great tour guide (Leo) he took the time to answer everyone’s questions and gave everyone recommendations afterwards on where to go based on what we wanted to do as far as eating or going out to a bar. For the tour being a little over 2 hours it went by quickly and lots of information was given! I’d definitely recommend this tour, it’s definitely for all age groups!
PAULETTE_K, Apr 2023
The guy Leo was nice but I think he was too old to do the tour because he was impatient. He talked to me and my daughter like he was our grandfather and was a little too familiar with us and my daughter didn’t like it. Beautiful city though
Glad I booked this tour!
Cynthia_G, Apr 2023
Great tour and our tour guider Leo was great we learned a lot more about Puerto Rico. Also had a chance to come across a nice restaurant for dinner Barrachina’s delicious authentic PR food and awesome customer service. I am so glad we booked this tour it was worth it and the tickets were not costly.
Great way to learn history
