An unfortunate chain of events
Apr 2021
My friend and I were on holiday and decided to book a nice tour of Old San Juan and wanted a private experience. First, there was a lack of communication from the tour guide regarding the pickup. We were at the designated pickup point on time, but when we tried contacting them, they had already left and told us to meet at the Capitolio building, of which there were actually two in the city. We went to the wrong one and had to pay extra $25 to get to the tour. In addition, our guide had a family emergency but took out his frustration on me and gave me a bad attitude on the phone throughout our communication. However, when the tour began, he was very knowledgeable and personable. He was very nice and answered all of our questions. However, the tour was supposed to be two hours long but it felt like only one hour, despite the traffic. After the tour we still gave a tip, wished his family well, and asked him to organize other tours for us. There was no response. Thus, after I gave my review on Viator, he actually texted me and said my review was not reflective of the tour and told me to change it. I feel like it was borderline harassment.

As we explained your traveling parner we did the tour just after getting a call telling me my grandmother, who raised had passed away. We took five minuted to just get composed and continued. We already answered this review to your traveling partner, and this is the continuation of an intent of damaging our reputation. You booked a 1 hour Sight seing tour and got more than that. I wont coment since you were a party of two and I texted you ecactly what I answered your friend in her equaly malicious review. Vheck the booking and read what you booked. You will see its not a 2 hour privatetour what you booked.

Great tour!

We had a wonderful private tour, and are so glad we decided on this tour. We learned a lot about Old San Juan and Puerto Rico. The tour gave us a good idea of what was available to explore on our own, which we did. We highly recommend this tour!

My favorite part was seeing the Statues and learning the history of the old San Juan and New Juan. My tutor guide was very knowledgeable and told us place to go and see. What to do the next time we come out there and good places to try.

Excellent tour of Old and New San Juan

Our family took a tour of Old and New San Juan and enjoyed it. Carlos shared a lot about the history of Puerto Rico and showed us many historic sites of interest. We all came away with more knowledge and a greater appreciation for the history of Puerto Rico.

Wonderful and informative view of Old and New San Juan
Mar 2020
On a recent cruise to San Juan, Puerto Rico we had a marvelous private tour of both Old and New San Juan with a wonderful tour guide, Carlos Alexis, who was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We had not been to San Juan since 1967 so we were very interested in seeing the changes since that time. We could not have been more pleased with the guide we had as he went out of his way to give us a marvelous tour and gave us information that made the tour extremely interesting and often not included in many tours which helped make the tour so enjoyable. We would give Carlos a 5*++ rating and would advise others to ask for him for your tour as you will not be disappointed. It exceeded our expectations! Thank you, Carlos, for a wonderful trip and for making our experience with you one we will long remember. Richard and Eleanor Perry
