Great day tour!
, Sep 2019
We were looking to learn more about the history and monuments in Puerto Rico when I chose this tour for my husband and I. Our guide was the best, so knowledgeable and kind. Carlos Alexis, was great at pointing out thigs that were not even on the literary. He taught us so much about the history and culture of the Puertoricans along with the Aricebo tour. We would take a tour with this group again in a heart beat!
