I really enjoyed learning about San Juan. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and since our group was only 4 people, we really got to take our time and take as many pictures as we wanted without feeling rushed. After the tour, he recommended a fabulous restaurant that I don't think we would've known to look for otherwise. We had plenty of time to walk around town and shop after lunch. I highly recommend!

We loved everything about this tour and could have spent many more hours exploring San Juan. In fact we want to go back to Puerto Rico because of what we saw and learned on this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, polite and helpful. Being in a van with just one other small family made the tour personal and more fun. It was also unseasonably HOT on the day we toured and w were so glad not to be on a walking tour as we watched so many others walking through the streets exhausted.

Fabulous 2 hour old San Juan Tour!
April 25, 2022
Had a fabulous time doing the 2 hour old San Juan city tour with Edwin at Countryside Tours! His English was excellent and he had a really fun vibe and was full of facts and eagerness to answer any questions. Honestly, it was way more fun than expected and better than the Royal Caribbean shore excursion. He met us right outside the cruise terminal gate which is in front of the sheraton hotel. TIP: Ask to be dropped off near the "old gate" and then take a leisure walk down the cute old san juan streets to the cruise terminal. Lots of great photo spots and it's an easy one mile slightly downhill walk to the cruise. Bonus: Your US cell service will work because it is US territory!

Our tour guide was waiting at the end of the pier for us when we pulled in. They were easy to find and loaded up a group of 16. He was very informative and spoke clearly. We learned so much about San Juan that most people touring by themselves wouldn't know. The best part is our tour was half the price of the ships and I talked to some of the people that did take the ships tour and they couldn't understand their tour guide because of his accent. We told them how great ours was and told them all the places we went to. Could not say enough good things about it!!!

This tour was actually a do over because the previous time we came was during a Holiday Cruise. It was on a Holiday and the shops and stores were closed. The tour guide was knowledgeable and very informative. We did sightseeing, and made stops at some interesting sites, We were able to some quick shopping, And we learned some interesting history of the Island inclusive of the recent hurricanes. I'd recommend the tour. When we cruise we're more likely to do some type of tour because you're given the opportunity to do and see more of the environment.

Fantastic San Juam old and New Tour
October 10, 2018
Great tour driver. He was very knowledgeable about the area and it was very obvious how much he loves San Juan. He was originally from New York but moved to San Juan 30 years ago to make it home. During his time there he learned the language and fell in love with the culture - prompting to stay. He was very punctual and ensured that every member of the tour understand the time they were due back to the bus. Unfortunately, there was one couple who did not pay attention to the time and we had to circle back around to pick them up. The driver I believe was scolded for this but should not have been. He was absolutely chock full of interesting facts. His name is Jesus.

March 08, 2017
Our vehicle was comfortable and the driver knowledgeable. Our ship was docked adjacent to Old San Juan, so we walked around a bit before the meeting time, which was near the cruise ship terminal. The tour itself was mostly looking out the bus windows. We had two stops (Capitol and at a park in an upscale beach neighborhood). It was a disappointment not to stop at the old fort, although the driver did offer to drop passengers off near there, to look around, then to walk back to dock area (+/- half a mile).

San Juan, Puerto Rico
February 14, 2017
As we exited the ships pier we were met by our tour leader in a well marked designated location . We were a party of 5 in a van. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to the highlights of a very beautiful city. We enjoyed the tour very much.

Great overview of old and new San Juan
January 26, 2017
The bus driver was very friendly, upbeat and was great to talk with at the stops. Tour was slightly delayed starting because other visitors might have been confused about difference between ship time and local time in San Juan, but we sat in the bus and relaxed while others joined us. Liked the stop at the beach to see the view as well as the Capital building to climb the hill hear the fort. Driver allowed us to exit in downtown at the top of the hill very close to shopping and the fort. Highly recommend the tour as a great quick overview of San Juan.

Guide was excellent! One of the best and most knowledgable tour guides we have had in our travels. Tour was easy to find, had nice vehicle, ran on time and had maps to look at. Thoughout the tour he would point out locations and give some history of the site. We enjoyed it immensely!

We had no time to actually walk in Old San Juan. Tour should start 2 to 3 hours earlier and have at least 1.5 hours to enjoy the gorgeous clean charming streets in Old San Juan. Our tour guide Joe was fantastic. Your guides are all wonderful - the tours need tweaking.

This tour gives a good overview of old and new San Juan. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver on the narrow streets of old San Juan. The van was comfortable and with only seven of us everyone was able to see the sights easily. Making more stops would have made the trip more interesting in my opinion if that is possible in San Juan.

He was easy to understand & was more than willing to answer any questions. The vehicle was clean, cool & comfortable. It was a small group of perhaps 10 or 12. VERY WELL DONE!

I thought this was going to be a ""walking tour"" and I was a little concerned when we arrived because the outdoor temperature was quite high. So I was pleasantly surprised when we took off in a small bus. The tour guide was exceptional and we really enjoyed our time with him. I am so sorry I don't have his name. Thanks again.

Traffic in San Juan is heavy so it takes a while to get from the cruise port to the resort side. Would like to see more stops included next time. Definitely would recommend to others.

If they could add a stop at the Fort, that would make it a plus. But, they did let you know in advance that it was not included. Hope this tour continues.

Our ship arrived late and we were glad that the tour guide waited for us. Thanks. It was a very informative and relaxing trip through SJ. We couldn't stop at the memorial sight because traffic was heavy and there was no parking available. The driver even circled back later to try again, but still no parking. After busy days beaching and snorkeling it was nice to have a calm day. My wife and I would highly recommend...

It was a bit frustrating to start, as our van and driver were a bit late showing up at the point of departure. When they did arrive we didn't recognize them - no sign on the vehicle. There was a driver/guide standing at the rear of an unmarked van. He indicated that he was looking for a Mr. (some name). That wasn't us. And then I saw in tiny letters at the bottom of his sign my name. They need to do a better job when dealing with old folks like us. However, we did make it onto the van and had an enjoyable trip.

Seeing the true San Juan!
December 10, 2015
We got into a van and were shown all around the city. The driver had a lot of info about the town. Things we would have never learned without him. Our driver took us to a few main stops, he hit a few of the big tourist spots but also showed us the local hot spots. We enjoyed learning about the vast history of San Juan and at the end he drops you off wherever you want! So of course as Canadians what better place than a bar! He took us to a good spot with cheap beer and good food!

We were greeted at the dock by our guide Frank who had a sign with our name and a big smile. My mother was in a wheel chair and he was able to accommodate it in the van nicely. Frank took us all over San Juan in areas buses could not travel and entertained us with factual and personal commentary only a resident could give. Since he lived in the US as a child his English was flawless (except he had a NYC accent!). Perfect for a family with varied physical abilities.
