Excellent tour! Although it started late due to one of the guides having an emergency we were informed of the issue, they sent a new guide who was fantastic and very knowledgeable and compensated us for the delay. Very professional company. We thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and history of Old San Juan while tasting 5 different cuisines and enjoying one complementary drink. I would highly recommend this tour.

Kathy was really great! I'm sure you have lots of other great guides, but she will be hard to replace.
