Private Old and New San Juan
Escape the mob tours and take an old and new San Juan Tour with a PRIVATE, 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.

This was an excellent tour with a private guide that was interesting and fun. The guide was able to answer our questions, and accommodate special requests. We had a very nice young tour guide who directed us to spots we inquired about as well as taking us to a special restaurant were we could have a few drinks and try the empanadas which were very good!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Even though we were not allowed to disembark from our cruise ship on time, he was still waiting for us. He stopped at various locations so we could explore and take pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to others.
