San Juan Old and New Tour
Escape the mob tours and take an old and new San Juan Tour, with an experienced guide. An old walled city with more than 400 years of history, in contrast to a modern resort city, is the backdrop for your orientation of this thriving and interesting city.
In the new part of town, you will travel through the Condado area. Here you will see the luxury hotels, casinos, nightclubs and many restaurants that make this the most popular place in town after dark.
San Juan's Old Town tells hundreds of years of history in its restored and renovated buildings, homes and fortifications. It is divided by narrow streets, many still paved with cobblestones. Photo opportunities abound as you pass the Governor's Palace, San Juan Cathedral, Capilla de Cristo, Fort San Cristobal and travel along the coast road to El Morro, where you will have a photo stop from the street.
As you drive along, look down every street for hidden plazas and the beautiful 17th-century Spanish ironwork on the restored old homes, and blue-black glazed cobblestones lining the narrow streets of the Old City. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to the port.
Guests on ships docked at the Pan American pier (across the bay from Old San Juan) have the option of ending their tour in Old San Juan for shopping and sightseeing. Those doing so are responsible for their own transportation back to the Pan American Pier.

The guide was informative and we really enjoyed the tour.
We took bus tour thru Old and New San Juan. I am impressed with San Juan and it's beauty. The only disappointment was not spending much time at one of the Forts. We just stopped near by and took photos of it, from a far.

LOVED IT! It was so interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable, personable and patient. The time it took us to take the tour flew by. Learned a lot about San Juan and saw some beautiful sights and people. If you have the opportunity I strongly suggest you take this excursion!

Francisco was our tour guide and he was excellent! He gave us so much information about the city on our tour. I liked that the tour also made little stops along the way to explore different areas. Such a beautiful city and we felt welcome. We loved this port of call.
