The tour started right in time. Our guide, Desiree, is an expert in Puerto Rican cuisine. She showed us a bit of history, walking through key street in Old San Juan. We had a coffee and Mayorca sandwich, pork and beans with soursop and rum, fish toston tacos, a chilled chocolate drink and a fish bite with another rum cocktail. We would have never found these amazing places on our own!

Sara was really good and kept us engaged the whole time. It was a great start to our trip since we learned so much. She also gave us good tips for restaurants and other places to visit.

Fabulous tour —Lorna was very informative and covered the History of old San Juan in a wonderful storytelling manner.

The online registration process and finding Jorge, our guide at the pre established place and time went very well

I really enjoyed the history of San Juan, and the perspectives. Highly recommended
