San Juan Old and New Tour
Sale Price: $43.00
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.

Because of the time difference between the ship and PR we were late in arriving to our tour's departure point. The owner of the company drove us, in his own vehicle, to the tour's first stop as he contacted the tour guide, himself. Our guide was EXCELLENT and filled us with information about the city and country and answered innumerable questions. Cannot say enough good about our experience!

The driver arrived on time and was polite and professional. We actually deviated from the original tour to see other parts of San Juan. Despite than Puerto Rico is still in reconstruction from Hurricane Irma, our family enjoyed the trip.
