Juan Carlos was a charismatic, funny, and highly knowledgeable tour guide! We did our tour early during our stay in Old San Juan, and J.C.‘s tour and recommendations made us appreciate everything we saw so much more throughout the week after learning the history of the city. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting—especially history lovers!

The history of San Juan. My daughter and I like history. Some sights we saw was the oldest Catholic church in America. The outside of Ponce De Leon’s mansion. Different periods of buildings/ architecture, churches from the 1500s to the 1800’s. The guide had many interesting information. Also we learned about the Taino indians and the Spaniards up until America took over.

Asked guide if I could use restroom. He said yes, then left us. Then I had to call him and ask where wh was. He gave me the name of the street. I didn't know where I was. Every time I would get to where he was, he did not wait for me to catch back up. This went on for an hour. He walked too fast and kept repeating the same information during the tour. Very poor. Would not recommend. We were also given a different tour than the one I had signed up for.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
We really care for each member on tour. We wait for more than 20 minutes and the rest of the group paid for the same tour and never complained. It’s impossible to repeat the same thing in a city with more than 500 hundred years of history. The whole group were concerned that you walked out of the tour for a short bathroom break and then we got in touch with you 25 minutes later and the tour can’t be stop for so long. You paid for the Historical Walking Tour, which is the same tour we do every day.

This was hands down one of the best walking tours I've ever been on. Juan was very informative, upbeat, and humorous and offered true insight into Old San Juan. You will leave this tour truly understanding the history of Puerto Rico and Old San Juan. I recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the island and having more of an understanding of the areas in which you see while here.

Our tour guide Edgar stopped at one place on the way to El Yunque where our group was able to taste local food- it was very good, but you have to forget about your diet for the day of the tour))). We liked the stories Edgar told us about history of Puerto Rico and famous people from the island!
