About
Visit one of the oldest cities in the world, San Juan, founded by the Spanish in 1521 AD. Get to know Old San Juan's history and sights on this walking tour of the city! With an expert local guide and a small group tour, you will discover the neighborhood, it's architecture and learn about the powerful colonial influence our Island has. Your local guide will take you on a 2 to 2.5 hour walking tour along the Paseo de la Princesa (Princess Promenade) to the La Fortaleza, which is currently the official residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico and the Castillo San Felipe del Morro (fort visited may vary).  Once tour finishes your guide will gladly share any tips and insight on shopping, dining or other activities to do in the area.

What to expect
  • Make your own way to the tour starting point in the heart of Old San Juan. Your tour begins at 9am, and you'll spend roughly 2 hours walking around San Juan. The city was founded in 1521 AD, so there's a lot of history to uncover. Travel from Paseo de la Princesa all the way to La Fortaleza, seeing sights and hearing stories from your guide. Pass the Ballaja Barracks, the military barracks built in 1864 for the Spanish troops and their families, and admire well-known places such as the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, El Convento Hotel, San Jose Church, and Castillo San Felipe del Morro. Walk through the Puerta De San Juan, built in 1635 as a guarded entrance to the city — it’s the only one out of the six created that still remains in the city. See other sites such as La Casa Blanca, Plaza del Quinto Centenario, and Felisa Rincón de Gautier Museum before your tour ends and you get dropped back off at the hotel you were picked up from.

Francisco was informative, entertaining and energetic! History lives side by side with the present in beautiful Old San Juan. Pictures do not do it justice. We loved it

Awful communication. Webpage, confirmation, and tickets all say tour starts at 10. See the photo of ticket. Tour company said it starts at 9 and left without us, so didn’t get to take tour we paid for in advance. All attempts to rebook through email or telephone were ignored. Have requested a refund and will be disputing charges. TripAdvisor provided no option to help with this, so once you pay your money you are on your own. Extremely dissatisfied by the whole experience, very unprofessional.

After noticing people were feeling uncomfortable under the heat during the tour, we opted to modify the starting time one hour earlier. It is true, if you booked your tour a while ago you may have receive the previous information on the confirmation. However, our agents always call the day before to confirm the activity and important details. During this call they reconfirm the new meeting time and location, and also send a text confirmation with the details. If for some reason you cannot be reached by phone, a text message or a message thru Viator will follow, containing all accurate information. We cannot be held accountable if you neglected to read this message or follow the instruction provided over the phone. For the past weeks this informations has been accurately updated on all online sites and available on the confirmation, unde the "where to mee"t tab and customer voucher.

I had the opportunity to work with BeSpoke while planning excursions for a group of 3 this weekend. We booked both Ziplining and the Deluxe Walking Tour. As soon as return from both, I will update with a full overview :-)

Booking was seamless - complete with confirmation emails, texts and a phone call. They even took an alternate number to ensure that everyone in the group was on the same page. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a hiccup with our start time BUT they were willing to make it work for us.

I am looking forward to working with them again!

Excellent way to start a trip. Franky, our tour guide, was knowledgable, engaging, and funny. Not sure if this is standard, but our tour was eight people which was great. Tour was the perfect length and we left with personalized recommendations of what to do next. Highly recommend!

We can’t really give a review because the tour guide showed up 30 minutes late. It was pouring down rain so we rescheduled for the next day. The following day the tour guide didn’t show up and we left after waiting over 30 minutes. Totally disappointed

My husband and I had a great time on this tour. We're really into history, so this was a great tour for us. The guide was kind and was great at answering questions. She was also very helpful in giving us suggestions on where to go once the tour was over. I'd definitely recommend this tour!

We had such a fun time walking around and learning about the history of Puerto Rico from our dynamic tour guide Norma. She walked at a reasonable pace that allowed space to take pictures and explore a little which was also great! I'd recommend this experience to anyone.
