We were a family of eight with an age range of 13 to 76. Hector was able to keep everyone interested while giving us a history lesson and a taste of San Juan today. We would not hesitate to sign up with him again on our next trip to Puerto Rico.

Hector was FANTASTIC! He went far above and beyond to make our tour interesting, informative, and fun. He's both funny and exciting...he knows San Juan so well you become immersed in the city yourself. We enjoyed a great local lunch...I could never thank hector enough for a great tour with a "saving our butts" finish...he'll have to tell you about that. Do yourself a favor and book the best...book Hector!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Kachelriess always my great pleasure!

I would give Hector 6 stars if that were an option. Our tour of Old San Juan was wonderful! We only had a few hours between the end of our cruise and our flights home. Hector was extremely knowledgeable and completely flexible about where we wanted to stop and explore. We covered a lot in just a few hours and will definitely contact him again when we return for a longer stay!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. Wash you guys are always welcome! Hector C

Hector was the absolute best guide! He kindly picked us up in his air conditioned van at our cruise terminal. He was abundantly knowledgeable, generous with his time, and so exceptionally friendly. We really could not have asked for a better guide for our short visit in Old San Juan. We'd highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting the area. A million thanks to you, Hector!

This was our second tour with Héctor, again perfect. We walked around Old San Juan and visited the Santa Maria cemetery by the the sea. It is a gorgeous spot full of history . We then toured the Old Fort and the barracks. Afterwards Héctor drove us through the city sharing history and anecdotes. Lunch at a local spot followed by a visit to the farmers market made a perfect day. Héctor is knowledgeable, entertaining and considerate. His tours are excellent and customized to your interests and abilities.

Hector arrived on time at the cruise port with a clean air conditioned 14 passenger mini van. Our private tour was for our group of four people. Hector and I had exchanged emails and we agreed on a flexible itinerary, and I outlined out desires for the day, to include a tour of Old San Juan, including, history, government buildings, food and drinks et al. I also asked Hector to provide a tour of some of the local beaches/ food. Hector delivered on all items on our 4 plus hour tour.

Hector was an excellent and very professional guide. He was very flexible, which we truly appreciated. The tour was for just my daughter and I, we felt very safe and comfortable with Héctor at all times. My daughter loved his stories along with his knowledge of San Juan. He definitely went out of his way for us. Would highly recommend Hector and his tour to anyone considering a tour of San Juan.

This was a treat for my husband and me, and it was worth every penny. Hector was on time to pick us up for our tour. I asked for some specific things to see and do, and he made sure to meet my requests. He is friendly, knowledgeable, a good driver, and the van was clean. We were so happy to get to see so many things without having to do so much walking, especially in the heat. We also loved having our own photographer. I recommend a tour with Hector.

Our tour with Hector was greatly enjoyed by us all. He accommodated every request, even when it was difficult, and helped us understand more about PR and San Juan. It is not an easy port to get around in but Hector knew San Juan well which kept us out of traffic problems. We got back to the ship with time to shop on our way back at the port. We would not hesitate to book with Hector again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mrs. Levy my great pleasure! Hector C

Héctor was the best from start to finish. Not only did he make the planning and sight selection painless but was very helpful with input and experience. We did the fort for a couple hours and covered much of Old San Juan including some really good food choices. Make sure he takes you to the little green coffee booth as it was perfect! I can't say enough good things about him or or day in old San Juan!!

This tour is exactly what my granddaughters and I wanted--seeing historic places, doing some local shopping, and seeing some of the area. San Juan was our favorite stop on the cruise because of Hector, who is an outstanding tour guide: personable, knowledgeable, funny, flexible, and helpful. He introduced us to local foods, took us to interesting places, and even got us to a beach so we could collect some sand! It was a wonderful afternoon; one we will remember fondly for a long time. Thank you Hector!

We had a wonderful tour around San Juan with Hector who really showed us places locals knew and shared history and local tales and in all made our tour informative and a great way to see the local area and find out a little of it's history. Hector was easy to listen to, interesting and flexible in offering us alternatives in the tour and knew where to get the best coffee beers or cocktails. I highly recommend Hector to other visitors coming to San Juan.

We are so happy we took the tour of San Juan with Hector. He was very accommodating and accepted our diminished mobility. He is a proud Puerto Rican and readily shared his regard for his country. We went away after 4 hours very well versed in everything the city had to offer.A wise choice.

Even though we took this tour months ago, I still remember how good it was. Héctor took very good care of us, and personalized the tour to accommodate our age (70s),abilities, and interests. He even took us out to a premier golf course so that the golf nut among us could visit the pro shop. He is an excellent choice if you are looking for someone to tailor a tour to your needs.

This was our first visit to San Juan Puerto Rico and will not be the last. Our tour guide, Hector, was dynamic and had a wealth of information/history about all the destinations we visited. He was very accommodating and we never felt rushed. Nothing was a bother and no question too trivial. We got to experience some authentic local cuisine that we would never have discovered on our own. Our visit to San Juan was a truly memorable one thanks to Hector!

Hector did a marvelous job of showing us historical areas of Old San Juan as well as giving us a brief look into Santurce area adjacent to Condado where we were staying. He is an expert in history of San Juan and has a deep passion for what he does. In addition, he has great interpersonal skills and has accommodated all our requests in terms of what we wanted to do and see. We intend to return to Puerto Rico in several months and will use Hector's services to continue our exploration of Puerto Rico.
