William was our guide and he was amazing! Full of information, and so very kind! He walked us all over old San Juan, answered all of our questions, and tailored the tour towards what we wanted. It was the highlight of our trip thanks to him. He even was able to secure access to an original crypt for us to see. Simply amazing. If you are in the area, this is a must tour with William! Thank you so much William-it will be an experience our family will never forget.

William was very cool and personable. Very knowledgeable about the history, architecture and culture of Puerto Rico and specifically Old San Juan. He also had bonus information about flora and fauna on the island. Well done.

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.

What an enthusiastic guide! Big thanks to her for a memorable afternoon. Great way to know when culture when you have a limited time.

Amazing! We had a wonderful day with an amazing guide!
