Jacob made the tour!!

Our tour guide Jacob was amazing! Funny and entertaining but honest and sincere. The food and the architecture were first rate, of course, but Jacob's personality and care for the history of Puerto Rico added that something extra that made this tour so much better than others we've taken. We can't not recommend this tour and especially Jacob at the highest level.
