It was amazing! Our tour guide, Jorge, made the tour a great pleasure with his enthusiasm and knowledge of San Juan. The pictures we took were amazing during ‘ Golden Hour ’ and the views were simply amazing. The rain showers and the cute roaming kitties made the tour even more memorable. A great way to close out the trip!
