Pablo was a fantastic guide who taught us so much about Puerto Rican cuisine, history, architecture, and culture. We went in expecting to taste some delicious food, but it was so much more. For any food or history nerds, this was a great find and highly recommended!

This tour is just perfect for for time visitors (our group was almost exclusively first timers) but think it's great for any visitor who hasn't done a culinary tour here before! The different foods (and drinks!) that we got to try were all super delicious, and light enough that we weren't stuffed by location 2, but definitely full by the time we wrapped up. The locations we visited were all super cute, and the history lessons in between were invaluable. Spoon also let us know that they work exclusively with local-only partners that use local ingredients. 1000% recommend this tour!

The tour was overall excellent! Be prepared to learn A LOT about the history of San Juan and the history of the food. We left absolutely stuffed and the food and drinks were all so delicious! Definitely worth the money, you get some wonderful sightseeing in and it really rounded out our trip. Our host was very knowledgeable and spoke with so much passion. We could all tell that he truly loves what he does and it made what could’ve been a hot, slow and boring food tour very engaging and quite interesting.
