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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys it was great to meet you comeback anytime here now you have a friend! Héctor

Hector was a wonderful guide to my mother and me! Mom uses a wheelchair so he made it easier for her to get into his van by pulling up by a sidewalk so she didn't have such a huge step. He was very knowledgeable about San Juan and its history and took us all along the narrow backroads of the town, to a huge empty beach where the locals go, stopped by El Morro and was just a joy to drive around with! Thanks for everything!

We had a large group - 8 people and Hector was so accommodating - we toured the Forts within the City and also received extensive knowledge of the area. Hector found a great place for lunch and shops that we would have missed. Highly recommend

Our guide was on time, friendly, and very informative. He picked us up at our dock, took us to the Fort, old San Juan, and we enjoyed a delicious local lunch. My whole family enjoyed this tour immensely and we look forward to returning to Puerto Rico in the future. 5stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We spent several days in San Juan prior to our cruise departure. The highlight was our tour with Héctor. He is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. We are glad the country is recovering from the devastating hurricane.

Hector! What a great guy. We started of with the Historical fort. What a crackin place this was. Sun shining. Perfect... Then all of a sudden the rain came. Being from Ireland we are use to it tho. Hector also brought us to a lovely local restaurant. And of course the birthplace of the Pina Colada :) Lots of personal touches and a genuine man. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey! Thanks for the memories! Lots of love always from Puerto Rico ❤ H

Hector and his friend Rafeal were wonderful. Our ship was delayed in coming in and Hector adjusted his schedule to meet our needs and made sure we had a great tour. Hector took us to many different places and shared with us his knowledge of the island. For dinner we were taken to a great restaurant in San Juan where we had a delicious meal and were entertained by a group of musicians. Hector helped make our visit to Puerto Rico a fun filled trip.

I would highly recommend Hector to take you around San Juan. He called me as the ship docked and told us where to meet him. We were 6 people ranging in age from 7 to 73. We worked with Hector via email to set up an itinerary suited to our interests. The grandchildren particularly enjoyed the stops at the fort and the chocolate shop. Hector's fondness for his native city was evident as he drove through the old city and gave us an informative talk about the history and culture of San Juan.

I booked a private tour of Old San Juan with Hector. In addition to being on time, professional, informative, he was very personable, down to earth, relaxed and told great stories. Very passionate about Puerto Rico. Being a local he knew all manner of detail and local lore. I particularly liked the stories he told about his memories of growing up in SJ and family members. Lastly, we stopped at a neighborhood eatery and had the best "tasting" of local lunch favorites (like your grandma's kitchen).

My wife and I had a very pleasant private tour of Old San Juan conducted by Hector C. Hector made the day. He is a very friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining host, with lots of local knowledge and stories. He is a musician, poet and father, as well as a professional guide for many years. We would do it again. Barbara and Jim Stowe Boston

Our party of 10 booked 2 tours with Héctor as book ends to a cruise. The Old San Juan and the El Yunque Rain Forest. Both tours where excellent, informative and flexible. During our old San Juan tour, Héctor took us to a great local restaurant a bit outside of Old San Juan called Bebos Cafe. Food and service was great. Definitely will book again with Héctor the next time we head over to the island.
