My husband and I went on the morning Old San Juan 2 hour walking tour while in Puerto Rico before a cruise. We were blessed enough to have Debbie as our guide who was absolutely amazing!!! Her knowledge is expansive and customer service is great! The walking is so easy and you make so many stops at great places, you don't even realize it before the 2 hours has past. Debbie took us to the best locations and finished our tour at the Fort which is ideal to explore on your own. In fact, Debbie was kind enough to tell us about a reenactment of 1787 battle going on the afternoon of our tour (only done once a year) and so she invited us to eat lunch with her and visit fort if we wanted. We ate at a cute little place by our hotel and fort (Hotel El Convento - highly recommend as well as the Royal Caribbean cruise we went on, AMAZING!!!!) and then visited the reenactment and wandered the grounds on our own - incredible place! There were only 4 in our tour so lots of personalized attention. I opted for this tour over the Segway due to the amazing reviews and we love doing walking tours in great historic cities. Plus it's nice to get info. along the way vs. just while stopping on a Segway. Lastly, the correspondence while booking was fast and easy. Cannot recommend this tour enough!! Wish we would have been in Puerto Rico longer to take one of their evening tours.

Debbie led us on an entertaining and informative walking tour through Old San Juan on our first evening in Puerto Rico. We were 2 of only 5 on the tour, so everyone was able to get Debbie's attention with their questions. The tour was in the context of what sailors might have seen a few hundred years ago as they stepped off the ship. We were able to enter a few buildings and spaces that aren't open to the public, so that's one reason to think about this tour. Debbie has an amazing voice - she sang us "En mi Viejo San Juan" in Spanish at one of the stops, which was a real treat.

As we were coming through one of the oldest neighborhoods and up towards El Convento, Debbie mentioned that another group had just recently told her about a couple of apartments available for short-term rentals in the $150/night range. We were still looking for a place for our final night in Puerto Rico and asked if she could pass the information on to us. The next morning Debbie had e-mailed us the link to one of those apartments and we were able to book our final night in an absolutely amazing location.

The walking as never strenuous with only a couple of short, steep uphills, and Debbie gave us ample opportunity to stop and sit, so as long as you have some comfortable shoes you should be fine for the ~2 hour tour. Debbie answered all of our questions - including tips on where to eat and what not to miss. When we bumped into her at a restaurant on our last evening in PR, she remebered our names and took time to ask us how our wedding and the rest of our time in PR turned out. Thank you, Debbie!

We highly recommend this tour - especially if you only have 1-2 nights, or if you want an overview before jumping in and exploring on your own.

We did a both the Old San Juan walking tour and the rain forest tour. Debbie, our guide, was prompt, informative, caring, informative, and very professional. Legends of San Juan was easy to work with and communicate with before our arrival. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a professional and informative tour.

Overall it was a decent informative tour of Old San Juan. But don't let the description fool you - there are no serious legends or ghost stories spoken of. There is a lot of walking and up a few steep areas but Old San Juan is a very colorful and beautiful place. If you want a condensed historic overview of San Juan and love to walk this is the tour for you. The tour guide was very nice and personable.

We took the morning walking tour of Old San Juan. We enjoy guided walking tours in walkable locales (Old San Juan most definately is!) at the start of a visit to places we've never been to get an introduction, get oriented, see some things we'd never figure out on on our own, and get some insider recommendations. This tour met all of those expectations but what really set it apart was the engaing manner in which the information was provided with solid historical commentary and some "legends" sprinkled in for effect.
