You will be learning about our history while gazing at the masterpieces that are still standing.

Let me take you through the place that has magic like no other. You will see the ocean, the colors, the balconies, the faces as you hear the music through windows while we walk. This is a place that has over 500 years of history and somehow, has managed to stay this beautiful, popular and busy.


This will depend on the clients preferences. I will always consult with you at the beginning and change whatever needs to be changed. =)

We will see national landmarks like:
Paseo la Princesa
Puerta de San Juan
Palacio de Santa Catalina
Catedral San Juan Bautista
El Convento
Iglesia San Jose
Casa Blanca
El Morro

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: The tour will begin at Paseo la Princesa in Old San Juan.
Rental: The place will appear on GPS
Taxi: Ask your Taxi driver to drop you off at Paseo la Princesa.
Bus: Go down to the piers and walk to Pier 1.

I will always discuss this with you and we can settle it.
You will have my information and I can help at any moment.

End location: We will finish in Old San Juan but the exact place is up for discussion, as it depends on clients plans after the tour.

Duration: 2 hours 30 min.

While it's usually two hours, this is completely flexible and will change if it needs to.
Pouring rain may make us go hide away, but it wouldn't mean the end of the tour unless the client specifies it.
