Private Walking Tour of Old San Juan

Highlight of our entire cruise !!!
July 19, 2023
Roger and Alicia were incredible! They were very easy to find and very close to the port. This was an incredible day our family will not forget. Roger was awesome! Extremely knowledgeable on the History, sights and over all walk through of this gorgeous city. We were all glad we had him to show us the “real” old San Juan. So many things He showed us and places he took us that were off the beaten path and definitely not touristy, he made us feel like family and showed us so many wonderful things and our family created so many wonderful memories. Thanks Roger and Alicia , it was a pleasure meeting you guys and hopefully we’ll see you guys again soon on our next visit!

Marquerite was Great!

Our guide Marquerite was lovely and very knowledgable. She let us have stops for the adults to get beverages, the kids to get ice cream and lots of pictures. We got caught in a street party and she was able to redirect with no problem.

Wonderful Tour - Margarita was Fantastic
October 04, 2022
Our guide met us right at the end of the pier. It was just our family of 6 on the tour. Margarita was a fantastic guide. She had wonderful insight into history, architecture and even some gossipy lore about Old San Juan. She had access to several historic buildings. San Juan is a beautiful city with a lot of history that's not taught in mainland USA. We felt very fortunate to have such an enjoyable lesson on Puerto Rico. Finally, based on Margarita's suggestion, we stopped at the local grocery store and picked up some local Puerto Rican grown coffee. It was about a third the price of the coffee available near the ship. And it's really good coffee.

Friendly, Flexible and Fun!

Our tour guide (Mauricio) was well-informed, friendly, professional and flexible. He understood we had young kids with us and would find places for them to rest along the way and gave us the option to detour or adjust our planned route if needed, as well as engage with them on anything they showed interest in. Mauricio also learned our interests and focused the tour on these topics. We loved this walking tour and couldn’t imagine doing a standard one again where we couldn’t adjust to our needs.

Loved our guide Margarita

Margarita gave our group of 6 a wonderful tour of old SJ. It was so interesting to hear from a native Puerto Rican all about the city, but also about current events and everyday living in PR. Very glad we did this tour, one of the highlights of our stay on the island.

Beautiful City
September 17, 2018
We recently visited San Juan for a couple days before we took off on a cruise. We booked an excursion through Shore Excursions Group and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived for our tour of Old San Juan that we were the only ones going! We had a lovely tour guide by the name of Lola who was so fun, energetic and gave us a wonderful tour of the city with lots of interesting history about the island and it's people. Lola took us to some off-the-beaten path places that made the walk even more fun and interesting. It's a beautiful place. If you book a tour, hopefully Lola will still be there - you should ask for her.

Perfect timing, perfect tour
February 12, 2017
It just happened that our ship was in San Juan during the San Sebastian festival, something we probably would have avoided without a fabulous private guide, who kept a watchful eye on us! Grabbed a beer and enjoyed the music and dance. Of course, we walked the quiet streets and learned much history too from her. A dose of history , some architecture, and a lot of fun! My take is this is the only way to do ship excursion tours.

An unexpected pleasure!

Our tour guide was Carlos. Only my husband and I were on the tour. Carlos paced the tour to accommodate the heat and our age (70 and 62). He was very personable and explained history in an easy to follow way. It was interesting how the buildings reflected over 400 years of history. We still remembering the things he showed us and taught us. I even got to try Puerto Rican coffee. It was divine.

Naomi was our Tour Guide who met us at the pier and we met right on time. She was very friendly and enthusiastic and asked if we had any special interests that she could include in the tour. We requested a historical & cultural tour that would leave us at a ""traditional"" restaurant that the locals frequent...! We were a private group of 4 adults, and she managed to answer all the questions we had for her...upon completion of the tour, we were right in front of a wonderful restaurant/bakery across the street from the University and only a few blocks from the pier. Thank You Naomi for a terrific tour, and a wonderful day!

Such a great tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a great deal about Old San Juan and had a good bit of fun while doing so. Our group consisted of my wife and I and our 10 month old son. The terrain was a bit rough for the stroller but it wasn't too bad. The tour wasn't very relaxing and made you work especially pushing a baby around. It was also still very hot out in October. Luckily there are carts all over the place selling bottles of water for a $1. Overall, it was well worth the money. It was the best excursion we took on our cruise.

Presented to clients as a means of them learning about the local culture of a destination. It is a great way to not only educate the client but gives them an opportunity to share with other travelers about their trip.
