  • WOW! . We visited so many restaurants and tasted so many wonderful flavors of Puerto Rico all while strolling the streets of this beautiful historic city. Not only delicious but also very informative. We loved this tour, especially having a taste the authentic Pina Colada, Ice Cream and Coffee's produced on the island. Don't miss out on this tour! You will not be disappointed!

  • Juan was a wonderful guide and the stops were awesome!

  • This heart of this tour was Carmen, our guide. Sure, she did a great job introducing us to all the Puerto Rican classics, usually before those restaurants were open to the public no wait!. But the best part was spending a couple hours talking to her. She was full of fun anecdotes about Puerto Rican food, culture, and history. Many of my favorite moments turned out not to be food at all! Although the food was also quite tasty. I believe the same company offers tours in a couple of the other nearby islands, I would definitely use them again especially if all their guides are as awesome as Carmen!.

  • This was the best tour that we did in Puerto Rico! It was food culture history, and the guides were very informed. Plus, everything tasted sooo good! I would recommend that everyone take this tour :-

  • Food was delicious and we had small party so we were able to see more of Old San Juan.

  • Excellent I highly recommend this tour. The food was great and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and made it fun and interesting the entire time. We had a lot of fun!!!!!

  • This was a highlight of my trip! Paola is extremely knowledgeable, made excellent restaurant choices that feature a good variety of Puerto Rico foods, and made sure our small group had a great time. I highly recommend this tour.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The tour guides were nice and knowledgeable of the restaurants and history of the local area. There are several restaurants on the tour list but only 5 are selected for each tour group. I'm not sure how the 5 restaurants are selected, but we visited 4 restaurants and stopped at one vendor for a cold fruity popsicle-like treat. We ate mofongo, ceviche, chocolate, and other local favorites that I can't name. Dress casual and be prepared to do a lot of walking at a fast pace in humid conditions.

  • Shannon was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and took us to some great places! My husband and I actually went back to one of the restaurants for dinner. This is a walking tour so make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. I definitely recommend this tour!
