    Learning about the culture was great. David was very informative, just wish he spent more time talking/ showing the fountain of youth.

    David was very thorough with his tour. He was really informative and gave us a souvenir (shot glass and keychain). It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again!

    Our guide, David, has lots of knowledge to share with guests. He knows his history and geography very well. David also kept our group moving and in an unhurried fashion. I appreciated the provider's gift bag of water and souvenirs.

    The Tour of Old San Juan taught me a lot about my Heritage. We saw many beautiful and historic site. I had been to a few of the locations we covered on prior trips to Old San Juan but did not know their significance. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and also pointed out similarities with other cities and cultures. We are extremely happy we took the tour and would make it a must do for our friends and family when the come to the area..
