An Experience Inside the Spanish Forts of Old San Juan


This private tour walks along the walls of Old San Juan and visits the interior of the San Felipe del Morro and San Cristobal Forts (you pick).

The experience highlights the history and military importance of these fortifications for Spain and United States over the last five centuries. This tour is a fantastic opportunity to learn why The San Juan National Historical Site is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most popular tourist attraction of Puerto Rico.

The visitors have the option to end the tour in a authentic Puerto Rican restaurant right in the heart of Old San Juan.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jorge is an excellent guide! He is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, considerate, and very passionate about Puerto Rico. We did multiple tours and his was by far the best. He always seemed to have detailed information or stories about everything we saw. We enjoyed the time we spent with him and we would recommend him without hesitation!
