Amazing, intimate look at San Juan
Nov 2021 • Family
Fantastic, unhurried tour of the UNESCO city of San Juan. Angel and Annie will take you to places off of the beaten path and show you the San Juan they know and love. You’ll visit neighborhoods that you normally would not know to venture into and be rewarded with the rich history and culture of Puerto Rico. We were picked up at our hotel promptly at 8am in a comfortable 8 passenger SUV and had a combination walking and driving tour with plenty of photo opportunities for just our family.

Personalized stops along the way
Angel and Annie were my tour guides and they were professional, accommodating and informative. I especially enjoyed the La Perla stop as I am a fan of the Despacito video. (It was shot in La Perla.). I also enjoyed seeing the US presidents’ statues of those who have visited on official visits to PR.

A perk of this tour is that you decide which stops you’d like to linger for photos or continue on.

I enjoyed it! Thank you!

Jun 2021
My husband and I, along with our three children (ages 14/9/5) and my husband's parents, travelled to Puerto Rico for the first time for 10 nights in June 2021. I reached out to Tours Your Way PR ahead of our trip and ended up booking pretty much all of our transfers and tours through their company: 1) SJU-hotel arrival transfer, 2) The Old, The New and the Now: The Updated San Juan City Tour, 3) Hidden Gems of the North Tour, 4) From the Concrete Jungle to the Actual Jungle Tour (which doubled as a transfer from our hotel in Old San Juan to our resort on another part of the island), and 5) resort-SJU departure transfer. I could not have been more pleased with their service! Annie coordinated our itinerary and arranged all of our bookings and tours; Angel was with us every step of the way providing detailed and highly personalized tour services.

To review this tour: The Old, The New and the Now: the Updated San Juan City Tour

Angel and Danny (his driver) picked us up from our hotel in Old San Juan on the morning of our first full day on the island. Over the next few hours, we were driven from one local attraction to another, stopping along the way to explore on foot and take pictures along the way. Angel introduced us to the history of the people and the culture of Puerto Rico. After the tour ended, we were dropped off at a local restaurant so that we could have lunch and continue exploring the city on our own (as an aside, Angel's recommendation that we dine at Cayo Caribe did not disappoint!).

We enjoyed our time in PR so much that my husband will be returning later this year (this time just the two of us), and we fully intend to utilize Tours Your Way PR again. I highly recommend this company for ALL your Puerto Rico tour needs!

Great air conditioned tour of the city with a great guide.
May 2021
If you want a detailed tour of San Juan you must visit Tours your way ask for Angel. He is one of the best tour guides we have had in a while. Angel is very passionate about his country and his heritage. I would definitely recommend this tour. You will get a tour of old San Juan, new areas and some areas not often seen.

Great Private Tour
Mar 2020
I use a mobility scooter to go long distances due to lower back and neck issues. It is becoming harder to find tours that can accommodate taking a scooter or a wheelchair. When my cruise stopped in San Juan I wanted to do a tour, but the cruise line did not offer anything accessible. I searched and found Tours Your Way PR, and the city tour. I contacted them and told them about my scooter. The scooter comes apart in several pieces, and it will fit into the trunk of my car, that is how I transport it. They said they would be able to take the scooter, and so I booked the tour.
Angle was my tour guide. He met me right outside the gate of the cruise terminal, he had a sign with my name on it. The vehicle was a nice Ford SUV, and we had no problem loading the scooter into the back. Angle and Annie drove me all over the city, starting with the old side, down some very narrow streets, around the old fort (we did not go in, but did make a photo stop) all along the way Angel was very informative about the history and culture, and pointed out many things of interest. Leaving the old city, we crossed a bridge and stopped at a park where we unloaded the scooter and I was able to explore the park and go down to view the ocean. Then we headed to the new part of the city , where locals hang out and the area is being reinvented with mural paintings on the buildings. The tour ended right by the gate of the terminal.
This tour was so enjoyable, especially for someone who has limited mobility.
I highly recommend Tours Your Way PR for anyone visiting Puerto Rico.

Angel was a wonderful tour guide, pointing things out, giving us history and context, narrating almost constantly, but answering all our questions thoroughly. He took us to areas not covered in most other tours to give us a comprehensive look at all aspects and neighborhoods of San Juan. I highly recommend this tour.

We saw many areas that would not have been possible in a Old San Juan and the emerging neighborhoods that are lively and creative. I enjoyed Angel’s wealth of knowledge, friendly and thoughtful comments. I highly recommend this tour.

More than a tour, a great experience
Feb 2020
We were picked up by Angel at the cruise port after a seven day cruise. We stayed in Puerto Rico for 4 nights before the cruise which was brilliant, but to have the enthusiasm and love Angel has for Puerto Rico made the tour so interesting and we learnt so much more about the people and history of this beautiful place. Highlight was seeing the streets with its amazing murals which told so many stories and the strength of the people in recovering from Hurricane Maria. Thank you Angel.

Wonderful private tour
Feb 2020
My husband and I took a private tour with Angel and Annie after getting off a cruise ship. It was a wonderful tour and being private you could pick and choose where to go. We did a quick tour of the old town and did enjoy La Perla especially. Our goal was to see the coast line and the rainforest. Angel added a cave or cavern trip also which was great. A great stop at a local place for lunch was wonderful but one meal will feed two people. It was a great tour and afterwards we were dropped off at the airport for our flight home. We would highly recommend this company.

The many views of San Juan.
Jan 2020
Our private tour guide Angel, picked us up and gave us a tour looking at many parts of San Juan. He took time to explain the sights that we were seeing from a residents point of view.

He went above and beyond to personalize the tour. I would highly recommend his tour.
