Amazing tour company! My family and...
Onvara A, Jun 2017
Amazing tour company! My family and I booked the Ponce Historical City tour through Viator. We were picked up at our hotel in San Juan at 8 AM in a van and drove about 1.5-2 hours to Ponce. The entire tour lasted until 6 PM, so it's a very long tour, and it's a bit pricey 175 per person for us, but I would absolutely recommend it. Also, they offer tours on Sundays, which are really hard to find! Jaime and Kristal, our tour guides, were very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. Jaime greeted us with a hug so we were already off to a good start. Throughout the tour, they told us so many interesting facts about everything -- from the types of local fruit, to the significance behind the Flaming June and The Last Sleep of Arthur in Avalon paintings in Museo de Arte de Ponce, to the history behind the massive Ponce sign. The best part of the tour was how they customized it for us, based on what we wanted to do. They took us to three amazing local restaurants/cafés, where we had ice cream, authentic Puerto Rican lunch, and coffee. We were asked whether we wanted to go to the Tibes Indigenous Ceremonial Center or Castillo Serrallés, and we picked Castillo Serrallés, which was an incredible experience. We also visited Parque de Bombas, a historic red-and-black firehouse building, took a 30-minute tour through the streets of Ponce, and then visited the Museo de Arte de Ponce in the afternoon. Take this tour or any tour with Bespoke really! You won't regret it.
