Reviews

So adorable and fun!
Kristen_C, 04-05-2021
This is seriously the cutest thing ever. My friend and I had a blast walking Old San Juan listening to these adorable 6th graders give each building's history in 1st person. The flexibility is awesome doing this vs a guided tour b/c you can start and stop it as needed, which we did take a pit stop in a cute little bar for a mojito along the way! Much better experience and at a cheaper price equals win-win!!
Great school project

The info was great however it didn’t take into account of street closures so I was getting info for the wrong places and it kept on telling me I was lost
