Worth it!

Ian did a wonderful job showing us all of the beautiful highlights of Old San Juan. He was patient and accommodating and very informative. He also stopped and allowed us to take as much time as we need to take pictures! It was well worth the money.
Some Insta-worthy Stops and History Along the Way!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! We enjoyed the tour and we did stop at some Insta-worthy spots along the way.
The only criticism I have is that the the organizer did not get back with me about refunding one of the spots for my friend who had gotten sick. I asked a few times with no response.

We had a great time however.
