¡Una experiencia que no debes dejar pasar! 100% recomendado para aquellos que quieran aprender sobre la localidad. Percibimos que Gonzalo conocía muy bien la historia, la política y la cultura no sólo de Puerto Rico; sino de toda la comunidad caribeña. Toda pregunta fue contestada y la atención fue excelente. De los mejores walking tours que he tomado! 🤩

Gonzalo was nice in the beginning but as time went on, his “jokes” were borderline rude. He could also tell that he offended me on a few occasions and did apologize as I stopped engaging. I was the only one in the group and brought my husband. I was grateful that Gonzalo let him come but no one else showed up. Which is why Gonzalo had to repeat MANY times and even at the end for his “tip.” That was his only focus. On one occasion, Gonzalo said “ I wasted my time” because we didn’t get his question / quiz right. I have done many guru walks over Europe and asia and would not recommend him.
