The Waking tour was very good and covered a lot. One thing that was odd is that the tour guide did not share his name and abruptly ended the tour without goodbyes and thank you

We really enjoyed hearing about the history of Old San Juan from David. He kept our attention and shared interesting details about the city. We did cover a lot of ground so we were thankful we had comfortable shoes. Water was provided for each guest and a brief break was given mid tour to rest/use the restroom. Definitely recommend!

So-so… a bit misleading for Viator to position the guide’s having written a book as relevant to being a tour guide … I looked him up after a mediocre tour and it turns out the book is fiction about a post WW2 family … nothing to do with Old San Juan … tour ended with a “walk 1 minute this way and you will end at Starbucks where we started “… I had to catch up with his escape to tip him … seems he had somewhere else to go and just took off!

Our guide was excellent, not only very knowledgable but humorous too. Tour was about 3 hours and we covered every part of old San Juan. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to San Juan for the first time

David led us in a fun-filled historical and cultural tour of Old San Juan. As mentioned by others, it was fast-paced, so we were ready to move out - to the tune of 12,000+ steps by 11:30am. Our small group of two couples enjoyed learning about Old San Juan. David readily answered questions and provided recommendations (yes, Cafeteria Mallorca is very worth the visit!)
