My husband and I took the San Juan old town sunset walking tour our first evening in Puerto Rico. It was a great way to see and learn about San Juan. The guide was knowledgable and shared many interesting facts and stories. Sunset is such a beautiful time to see and photograph the city. We enjoyed the tour and are so glad we did it!

This was an absolutely amazing tour; Jorge was informative and personable and interesting. As a solo traveler, he also helped many of us take amazing pictures around the city. I enjoyed learning more about Old San Juan.
