Jitendra_S, Sep 2023

The cathedral and the scenery and the history
Ismael_O, Sep 2023
The wall, the history, the cathedral, and the whole city. The guide was very nice and informative. We learned a lot about how old San Juan came about, did not know how it got its name. It was named after Saint John the Baptist
Amazing walking tour of Old San Juan
Jessie_M, Aug 2023
My 16 year old daughter and I really enjoyed the walking tour. Marjorie was patiently waiting despite our late arrival, extremely knowledgeable, and had a great attitude. She happily volunteered to take pictures of everyone and is a great photographer. Marjorie’s knowledge, passion and fun spirit made this an AMAZING experience. We just arrived in Puerto Rico and it was wonderful learning so much history. I highly recommend this tour, especially with Marjorie!

Everything was so beautiful!! Our tour guide was amazing! Everything was like things you see on movies. We loved it. The cathedral, the wall that was built, and definitely our pit stop to get Agua and Timber! I would highly recommend. I just wished it was a little cooler, then it would have been perfecto!

shout out to yoli for being incredibly personable and knowledgeable through the tour. prior to the tour, i had asked for recommendations on dining and activities, and she took the time to better guide me on my stay. she shared such good recommendations and we had such conversation about culture, puerto rico, and other things. during the tour, she also shared some awesome fun facts and i took note and definitely walked out better than before! you will absolutely enjoy the tour, and especially with yoli!
