My wife and I had an excellent morning with Francisco. He is knowledgeable, well-spoken, patient, and engaging. He showed us all the sights in detail and was so personable that if I could book again, I would want to have him as the guide. He calmly navigated us around a public protest that had popped up. I felt that we were in capable hands at all times. Thank you, Francisco.

We had a great time on this walking tour! The guide was deeply knowledgeable and had a clear passion for his homeland that radiated throughout. He took us to parts of San Juan we wouldn’t have known to explore, capped off by the amazing San Felipe del Morro fort. He knew all the best places to take wonderful photos, and at the very end gave great recommendations for restaurants and shops! An excellent cap to a great vacation!
