Well Worth the Price

David Rodriguez was an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of the city was superb, and he was able to answer all of our group's questions. Be aware that there is A LOT of walking, but the pace was fairly comfortable, even for our group of 60-ish retirees. The bottled water, although room temperature, was very welcome. AT the end of the tour, we were all a bit weary, but very glad we took it. Don't forget to give David a nice tip. BTW if you are coming off a cruise ship, the Starbucks is very easy to find. Walk to the end of the pier, cross the street, and continue walking until you get to it.

It was a great way to figure out how to navigate Old San Juan and get a little history of the place. David moved a little faster than we would have liked and there wasn't much time to take pictures, but it was informational.

This walking tour was great. The guide took us to so many stops and pointed out places to visit in our free time. He was patient and humorous. The tour lasted about 2 hours and you walk the whole time. That said, you see a lot and get a lay of the land in Old San Juan. I highly recommend it.
