Great Intro to San Juan

This was the first thing we did in San Juan and it was a great start to the trip. The tour showed us places we probably would not have seen on our own and it was a lot of fun to learn about the history of Puerto Rico and San Juan. Our tour guide David was great, very friendly and always made sure he answered our questions. He also pointed out good places to eat. Over all really enjoyed the tour, and glad we started off with it!

The history and the view of San Juan bay from the fort. David did and excellent job explaining the area and we got some good exercise. He also made a great recommendation for dinner after the walk. Cayo Cibre was excellent.

Good walk but guide could be better.

Overall we covered the key sites and large areas of Old San Juan which made for a good overview. Since we’ve been there before we found that the guide - who was very pleasant- was too general and fail to provide sufficient information about some of the sites. For example there was a statue that he said here is blah blah blah without explaining the who or what. That characterize the walk - there was insufficient detail or description of sites we walked past. We observed other guides who were very informative. But it was good to give you the lay of the land.
