The tour was amazing!!!!! Our guide was very informative and very patient with us. my group and I are definitely out of shape and that he took us out but nonetheless our guide waited patiently with us never complained about us wanting to take a break and overall was just so kind. He gave us a mix between history, culture and personal experience. he did not overload us with a ton of long each about each place but the Tour was very informative. We got to see so much of San Juan the end of it we were exhausted. It was a wonderful way to spend a day in San Juan if you’ve never visited before I 10 out of 10 recommend you take this tour because you will not be disappointed and will love it just as much as I did.

It was a wonderful tour, bursting with colour and culture. I enjoyed it a lot and Pablo, who took the place of Flavio today, was such a warm and enthusiastic guide with a good level of the English language. Visiting the cooperatives was a wonderful experience, hands on and super informative. Occasionally when the Spanish explanations were too fast for me to catch fully Pablo translated for me. A super your and super kind guide. Would highly recommend. Thank you ❤️
