Francisco was friendly and very knowledgeable. Showed us the government district, the cultural district and the old fort. I’d recommend him to anyone.
Fun & Informative

This was super fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable and charming. I took the tour with two friends and we all agreed it was a high point of the trip. Be sure to wear good walking shoes or sturdier sandals, you cover a lot of ground.
Amazing Opportunity to learn about Puerto Rican History.

This tour was outstanding and what made it even greater was our Super Dedicated Tour guy: Francisco. He was very knowledgeable and passionate to teach us about the history of Puerto Rico. Excellent Experience and a wonderful opportunity for the whole Family to bond.
Well worth it!

This was a fantastic tour. My number one tip is to do this as soon as you get to San Juan. We put it off until our last day so we could do some other things, so we missed some places we could have visited because we didn’t know they existed!. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and welcomed questions. Be prepared to walk! Not for the faint of heart! This is an absolute must if you love history and if you just want to see what Puerto Rico is all about. If I go back to PR, I would do this again!
