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.
Our tour guide was great and was happy to answer questions and share information. Got to see a variety of old and new San Juan with the history behind the place. Meet up from the ship was easy to find. Tour was just long enough so we could still enjoy shopping around afterwards.

The tour rep picked us up near the cruise port. We visited most of the city. Time to stop at each viewpoint is just right. Bus is very comfortable.

This was our first time ever booking a tour of the city. The tour guide was very informative and even got us into the Capital Building. Beautiful! We made a few stops. 1. the walk of Presidents 2. a gift shop 3.. a little beach 4. the cemetery 5. the Capital 6. shopping. It seemed like everyplace we stopped, he knew the people (maybe family members?)

Very good tour! Our guide was funny and engaging and very knowledgeable. He answered all of our questions, took us to great spots, and allowed us to get off the bus at the last stop and walk back to the cruise dock to tour the fort on our own.
Gave us a great glimpse of PR. But, it was definitely shorter than promised.
