Old San Juan Food Tour
Start off on foot near the Old San Juan City bay and eat your way through the Colonial city, visiting three tasting locations in total. Along the way you will learn a little of the history and culture of the oldest city flying under the U.S. flag, enjoy breathtaking Spanish and French architecture and dine at some of the best restaurants on the island.
Your walking tour will begin at a local restaurant with Puerto Rico's mouthwatering sweet bread, the mallorca, and a cup of locally-sourced coffee.
Then, you'll enjoy some of San Juan's beautiful architecture as you sample fresh and local favorites made with ingredients from the city's most popular farmer's market.
The favorite stop for many guests is next. You will get a hands on experience making our most signature local dish (mofongo) in a restaurant that was once Old San Juan's original city hall (dating back to 1523!) Your mofongo will be made with chicken or veggies upon request.
Another traditional dish in Puerto Rico is rice and beans, and you will sample it in one of Old San Juan's best kept secrets, a hidden open-air patio dating back to the 17th century.
No progressive meal would be complete without dessert, and at Old San Juan's only choco bar, you'll savor hand crafted local chocolate in a beautiful, unique environment.
To keep the tour fresh and new, the sites visited are changed from time to time based on seasonal dishes and availability of certain foods and space at the restaurants visited. Final destinations will be announced the day of the tour by your guide.

This was a perfect addition to our time in San Juan. Being on a cruise, we had limited time to see/explore Old San Juan and this tour was a great way to try local food, as well as learn a lot about the history of the area.

Our guide was fantastic. She gave us facts about different areas as we walked from one restaurant to another. Loved trying the local foods. I must say the coffee was the best I have ever had. My husband was really impressed -- very smooth flavor with no bitter aftertaste. He bought several bags to bring home. You won't regret going on this tour.

We loved this tour. We were able to taste authentic Puerto Rican cuisine and also have a walking history tour.
One of the best excursions we have done in awhile. Our tour guide Angel was great! Food was amazing. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
16 in the group total. Carlos, our guide, very patient, very friendly, talked of the history and readily answered any questions you had. Quite a variety of food and even some drinks!! We were stuffed!! Best way to spend some time in old San Juan and plenty of time to shop when you're done!!
