My family had an amazing time on this food tour. I try to do a food tour every chance I get when traveling and this was by far the best one. This was entirely because of our guide Pablo. His passion for Puerto Rican cuisine and knowledge of its history and cultural was astounding. And, of course, the places he took us were exceptional. I’ll be back to PR with some friends and will do it again.

Note was friendly, knowledgeable about the island and was an all-around excellent tour guide. Highly recommend his company!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the area. It was a very fun adventure.

Antonio was fantastic!! Super knowledgeable and patient.
