San Juan Old and New Tour

Escape the mobbed 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.

Enjoyable San Juan Tour

We had a limited time in San Juan. The tour was just right and hit the highlights. We enjoyed our tour guide. The tour was waiting for us just off the cruise port. Coffee and rest rooms were nearby and we were done in time to enjoy a nice lunch in a local restaurant.

Great Tour
March 04, 2020
Our tour guide was waiting at the end of the pier for us when we pulled in. They were easy to find and loaded up a group of 16. He was very informative and spoke clearly. We learned so much about San Juan that most people touring by themselves wouldn't know. The best part is our tour was half the price of the ships and I talked to some of the people that did take the ships tour and they couldn't understand their tour guide because of his accent. We told them how great ours was and told them all the places we went to. Could not say enough good things about it!!!
