Hector is a wonderful guide! He was prompt in arriving and was great about showing us the beauty of El Yunque. He was very happy to let us take as much time as we needed at each location and shared a lot of information about the rain forest, area and Puerto Rico. Hector was also happy to share areas that locals would visit. It was a wonderful day! I would highly recommend Hector for your tours in Puerto Rico.

Hector met us early at the terminal.His E350 van was clean and comfortable.We journeyed into the old town and he talked about the many historically and culturally significant sites while safely navigating the gnarly narrow streets.He was able to get us into Christ Chapel privately for a few minutes. He steered us to local food venues and the bar where the Pina Colada was born.He took us to an "off the beaten path" beach.He was very knowledgeable and flexible.We will do El Yunque with Hector the next trip

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.

Hector was a phenomenal guide and extremely accommodating during our tour. The pina coladas were the best that our family has ever tasted, and we thoroughly enjoyed his insights and knowledge on our coastal tour. The only problem, and this was not Hector's fault, was that our cruise ship arrived late and darkness set in too soon for our liking. We were having such a good time in Hector's company, that we wished for more daylight to explore San Juan Puerto Rico, especially the old time and coastal parts.

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!

Hector picked us up (8 of us) at 8am and we started our day - headed out of San Juan and toward our cave tour. We all peppered Hector with questions and he was a wealth of knowledge. After the Cave tour we went to a fabulous restaurant on the water and then was treated to a unique beach for a swim and exploring. We never felt rushed and was repeatedly told that it was our day and that he wanted us to have many opportunities to explore different parts of the island. It was a great day....

My husband, Michael Witlin, and I cannot praise Hector enough. He rates better than a five on all accounts. We found ourselves in San Juan without accommodation and in the midst of post hurricane chaos. Hector found us a place to stay and managed to create an informative and interesting tour around the island at a time when many of the well known attractions were off limits to visitors. We give him the highest possible recommendation for future visitors.

He made himself available via phone prior to our tour date so we could discuss what we wanted to see, eat and do and took us to some great local places while ensuring we saw the major sites as well. He is very friendly and accommodating. His van was very clean and comfortable. He has some great history and stories to tell. I would highly recommend his tour services.

This tour was incredible. Hector was perfect. If you enjoy learning about the culture and history of Puerto Rico then Hector is your guide. I habe two impatient and at time irritating indecisive teenagers. He was patient and understanding. He drove on local back roads and even a few sand dunes to make sure we saw everything. I would highly recommend Hector to anyone coming to Puerto Rico. The private tour is well worth the money. He even had a plastic zip lock back for my daughter and her sea shells.

This is my 4th time in San Juan and by far my favorite because of Hector. He took my elderly parents and myself on a private tour and was absolutely wonderful. He was so kind, patient and personable with my parents and made the tour exactly what they wanted. He dropped us off and picked us up door-to-door to all the places we wanted to go and hung out with us a lot too! He had some great suggestions for where we should stop and is a walking history book on San Juan. Loved this tour!!

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).

We saw some pretty sites but when we got to the rain forest - they were not open so we waited (wasted) almost an hour. Due to this wasted time, we were unable to go to the waterfalls. Being on a cruise ship schedule - we need to pack as much as possible in a short period of time. This tour seemed unstructured. We drove around and couldn't find a beach bar that was opened. When we finally found a beach bar - they tried to rip us off telling that the prices posted don't include alcohol - that is extra.

Hector is a fantastic guide. During our limited time in San Juan, he showed us more than I ever could expect. Castillo San Felipe del Morro, cemetery, Old San Juan, , La Casa Estrecha (narrowest house in world), Barrachina (invented pina colada), Capilla Cristo, Barcardi plant, and through narrow and winding brick roads. My parents keep talking about him; and even had picture taken with him. Gave as as much history as we wanted, with local perspectives. Great driver, as well. On-time and attentive.

We were traveling with teens, and he kept them interested and engaged.At the end of our tour, he drove us to the airport. He is knowledgable, personable, patient and helpful. It was our pleasure to spend time with Hector. I recommend him to you.

Tour: Loiza and Piñones Shore Excursion, San Juan, Puerto Rico, United States
Date: Feb 20/16

Hector met our group of four at the end of our cruise at the pier. He provided a very enjoyable tour of the Loiza and Pinones Shore area away from where an average tour guide would go. His selection of specific sights to highlight were excellent; an historic cave, beautiful scenic beach, a very talented artist at his home studio and a lunch stop specializing in local cuisine. Hector is extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of the local culture, plants, history & customs. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Godbless you guys, thank you all it means a lot to me. It's my great pleasure to serve you well please comeback some other time! Héctor

We enjoyed our tour with Hector. He was friendly and informative. I think that he made an effort to show us a good time and give us a nice introduction to the island. We stopped twice to try some of the local foods. He drove a large van which was comfortable. He picked us up on time and was easy to contact before our tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Always a pleasure to serve you! Hector

 Hector custom tailored our tour with remarkable ease and limitless knowledge of the local geography and botany.  While we saw a few of the traditional "tourist" attractions, the bulk of the tour focused on unique and less trafficked places.  Our hike to the observation tower atop the Rainforest was all we hoped for and more.  Thanks to Hector's knowledge and outgoing nature we had an enjoyable, entertaining and memorable day.  The tour delivered far more than we could have anticipated.  Hector was great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my complete pleasure to serve you guys. Thank you!
