    It was a very nice tour, the driver who was also our tour guide was very informative. During part of out tour, we walked the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and was able to frequent the businesses lined along the streets. The whole tour was very enjoyable.

    Great day in Old San Juan. The guide answered all our questions in the rain. He made sure that we were not standing in the rain while explaining the area that we were at. I would go again.

    Not really worth the money, you can easily do this tour on your own.

    This tour is a must! Our tour guide, Jorge, was PHENOMENAL! We visited a lot of great places, and Jorge gave us the detailed history on the places we visited (and helped me with my Spanish too...lol). I highly recommend this tour if you want to learn about Old San Juan.

    Simply Amazing

    Favorite part by far was the fort! Tour Guide Jaime was knowledgeable of the Puerto Rico history he's a native. The museum was unique. If you love art and native american history, then this is for you. Our museum tour was a guided tour by an employee who explained a lot on the history of the Indians and Spanish artists. My 14 son was bored and my 18 year daughter enjoyed. Either way, I always make it a point to have a history day when we travel. The driver doesn't stop at any other places for pictures or further explanations of what you see. This was disappointing! Basically it was a drive by in the mini bus and a mention of the name of the building. : This tour needs to add a little more history with stops and excerpts about what we were looking at. Also, the tour mentions shopping for 30-45 minutes. That didn't happen! This was another reason we picked this trip, so we could do some souvenir shopping. But instead we had to pay a cab 15 one way to come back the next day. The driver offered to drop you off, but you had to pay to get back to your hotel, which defeated the idea of booking transportation with this tour. With these slight improvements, this tour would be great.

    This is a nice tour to begin our trip to Puerto Rico, a first time here. This gave us a view of Old San Juan and the forts that we used to protect Puerto Rico from those wanting to take it from the Spanish. The fort El Morro is amazing in that the building of it took 200 years and was all done by hand. Such an amazing feat at the time period in which it was built. When touring the museum of the history of the Americas, we got so much more out of the tour with a tour guide. It did make a difference in learing about this history.

    We expect the tour guide will spend more time walking around the Old San Juan city and tell us history/stories about the area. Instead we went to the History museum and spent over an hour shopping in the area on our own.
