  • Pam and her company were the best! Just before the time we were supposed to meet, they sent us a text message reconfirming meeting location and time. When we arrived at the location, Pam was already there waiting for us.
    She was sweet, knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and knew how to answer all of our questions about the tour, the city, historical facts and even local gossip!
    The 5 food stops we had were perfect. This was well thought out and paced perfectly. I loved the fact this tour is basically a 2-4-1 we got the history walking tour with food stops in between. Next time we are over in San Juan, we are definitely doing this again! 5 stars all across!

  • Seemed expensive but SJ is expensive anyway. Great introduction loved the variety.

  • The tour guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful and all in all I highly recommend this tour!

  • This was terrible- Viator did not inform the tour company, about our food allergies, like they had promised to. And we accidentally ended up eating what we shouldn't be. Also, we did not get any confirmation from the merchant until last day. The food portions were very small, and we literally had to eat after this tour. In fact, they don't even allow you to order extra food even if you are willing to pay for it.

    I won't do it ever again! You want a taste of the local food- just ask the locals. After all, who doesn't know of a good place to eat!

  • This tour was amazing! Lots of yummy food.

  • Loved the food tour. Our guide was perky and well informed. Food was so fine and the chocolate was yummy.

  • There were only two of us on the tour. Our guide was a very knowledgeable young lady who I gave a wonderful history of the city and the foods on the tour were a good mix of local cuisine.

  • 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!.
