What people are saying about Paseo de la Princesa

William was our guide and he was amazing! Full of information, and so very kind! He walked us all over old San Juan, answered all of our questions, and tailored the tour towards what we wanted. It was the highlight of our trip thanks to him. He even was able to secure access to an original crypt for us to see. Simply amazing. If you are in the area, this is a must tour with William! Thank you so much William-it will be an experience our family will never forget.

Educational and entertaining. Unique architecture and interesting history. Francisco, our guide was knowledgeable and humorous in English and Spanish. He answered our questions regarding local culture and provided recommendations for food and events for the reminder of our stay.

Excellent tour! Great information and good overview of Old San Juan. In two hours we covered much of the history and saw all of the major highlights - giving us a good plan of what we wanted to revisit on our own afterwards. I highly recommend it.
