Hola! My name is William from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I have almost 6 years giving tours at tourist attraction in Puerto Rico. As a tour guide, I do love sharing with enthusiasm the Puerto Rican culture, architecture, and history. I am a very creative and fun guide who likes meeting new people, and who passionately loves this work in tourism. I also like to combine storytelling with tasting some drinks, local bites, like empanadillas (local turnovers)—delicious!

William was excellent and knowledgeable in the history of Puerto Rico. He made it fun and included a lot of the culture during our tour like the drinks and your PR restaurants or bar

William was welcoming and delightful. His history explanations were alittle confusing but not enough to not recommend him.
