Overview

Best tour ever - Thanks Narayan
RachelEniale, 30-09-2022
Narayan was our tour guide & this was one of the best experiences of my life. He was so informative on the rich history of PR & was so kind to both me and my mom. My mother has mobility issues so we didn’t want to walk anywhere and Narayan ensured she was still able to see everything the tour mentioned. I really can’t say enough about Narayan and our experience. This day will be a day we’ll always look back on and cherish because of his professionalism, passion for his job & overall experience. I’m still blown away by this experience. Please if you’re considering a tour - book this company!
Amazing Experience

You need to book this trip. This is a very comprehensive tour that demonstrates the rich history of Puerto Rico. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and they take care of you like if you were family.
Perfect way for my family to see San Juan!

I can’t thank Lismar enough! She was wonderful to communicate and work with when scheduling the tour. I have a 5 year old and a mother that can’t walk far so there is no way we could have seen San Juan on foot. My husband and teen loved it too! We learned so much about the island and city. We stopped at the end to get local food which is what we love to do while traveling! I would book a tour with her again if we return to the island.
Fantastic Tour

Lismar was an excellent tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, passionate and informative. She truly loves PR and enjoyed sharing her home. She was flexible and highly responsive to our interests, giving us a great local view of the city. She made us love the Puerto Rican people even more than we already do.
Great Driving Tour

We had a great day today on the driving tour with Lismar! She is so funny and so knowledgeable about all of Puerto Rico - each area, the history, best places to go, etc. We got so much great information on this tour. Not much walking, very easy tour and grabbed lunch at the end. She also gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip. It was such a pleasure to meet Lismar, she is exceptional and such a lovable person. I highly recommend taking a tour with her!
