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.

Reviewer: Janet Haole
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.

Reviewer: Todd French
Very informative walking tour of San Juan. Our guide--unfortunately we can't remember her name--was incredibly knowledgeable. In fact, we thought she was a teacher because she was so thorough in her presentation and knowledge. We spent quite a bit of time at the fort and governor's mansion. Our guide was very informative of local monuments, history, current events, politics, etc. and was more than willing to share her knowledge! We would highly recommend this tour and would even take this tour again!!

Reviewer: John Elder
This was like two tours. Old San Juan was fascinating, and really could have spent the whole tour there. New San Juan? Not much to see, no stop that I recall. That part really isn't worth it.
