San Juan City Tour Excursion Reviews

San Juan, the capital of the commonwealth, is a big city with a bustling business district, glitzy resorts and casinos, as well as one of the most stunning examples of colonial life in the Western world.

Saw the forts, Old Town and New Town, beaches....on our way to departure flights. They transfer the luggage straight to the airport, and we got to see and visit the city of San Juan. Worth the money.

We hadn't been to San Juan for years so we wanted to do the quick 2 hour city tour. We really enjoyed the fort- part of the National Park System. If all you want to see is that, you can walk ( or take a taxi ) to it from the cruise ship. It is fantastic! Really enjoyed it. It was nice to be taken around the city - the bus driver made several stops for people to get out and take a photo. After the tour, we walked around San Juan for an hour before going back to the ship. Read Less

We did a bus tour that was supposed to go into the city, but our tour guide got caught in traffic and he stopped the tour before we went into the city. All we saw was city hall and some streets outside of Old San Juan. We saw the fort from the outside as well. It was apparent that if we did not get stuck in traffic, the tour would've continued on. But because it was an independent tour guide, he could stop whenever he wanted to. And he told us it was a 2 1/2 hour tour, so he told us he could drop us off at the city or at the beach, even though it was promised he would bring us into the city. I suggest booking a legit tour next time, so you get your money's and time's worth. Read Less

Tour of Old and New San Juan.
Tour of Old and New San Juan. This was by far the best excursion I have ever been on. Great people, weather, food... just awesome. Our Guide Enrique (Bus #15) was nothing short of wonderful.

RC Old and New San Juan City Tour- I booked this to get a quick history and overview of San Juan. If you have enough time for a tour its a great way to see a bit of San Juan before you go. There is a guided bus tour with stops, including El Morro Fort, and a 45 minute stop in Old San Juan. I think this is a good tour if you’ve never been and don’t have time to explore on your own. I enjoyed the information and seeing areas outside of Old San Juan-worth the price. Read Less

It was fine, but was hindered a bit by rush-hour traffic from our late arrival, and by some rain. The guide was informative. The stops were hindered by places no longer being open for the day, rain, and perhaps too long.
