Experience San Juan on a different way. See what you are most excited about. Know the history. Know the untold secrets of this wonderful place.
We will visit at least one of the 2 forts (El Morro and/or San Cristobal). It is up to you. Get to know the churches, the plazas, the cafes, the museums.
Is not like a college lecture. . . is more like hanging out with a knowledgeable local person.

Please send me a message (using the "Ask a question" link) and send me your preferred date and time before you make your booking and pay. I will respond to you as soon as possible.


A typical your would start in Columbus Square.
I'll give you an overview of the city, and the history of Puerto Rico.
