We spent a whole afternoon with Javier on a private tour. We spent time visiting the two forts in Old San Juan learning all about the history of Puerto Rico. We also enjoyed a wonderful meal at a local restaurant learning about what a typical meal in Puerto Rico. Was a wonderful day with a wonderful guide.

Fantastic tour, a private experience with an extremely knowedgable tour guide. We were the only people at the waterfalls (granted, it's still COVID) and had a few hours to enjoy swimming and connecting with nature. The hot springs were also enjoyable. Thanks for a great time>

Javier was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about a wide range of the history of Puerto Rico, architecture, religious heritage, as well as many current political and social issues. He is clearly passionate about giving a great experience. We enjoyed our walk of Old San Juan and sipping pina coladas with him at Barachina. We even got to see his home while on the tour. Highly recommend.

Javier is by far the best guide in Old San Juan. We heard this from local passers by all throughout our tour. He is highly educated too. We benefitted from his amazing knowledge not just of the city and its buildings but of the historical events that shaped the city, its political framework and cultural aspects too. Javier guides with a refined yet very laid back approach. We never felt rushed and he didn't end the tour right on the clock. He has a lovely and warm demeanor and is a genuinely sweet guy. We loved him! It should also be noted that he charges per tour and not per person! He is much more affordable than his agency tour operator competitors. Highly recommend.
