The food was great & the tour, but not for the end of the tour. The tour guide in the beginning said it optional to tip her & at the end of the tour she said if we would like to tip her. I only had big bills & asked her if she had change & she said yes. I gave her a $10 tip & you know what she said to me “Most people give me $20 & this is all I do for work everyday to survive” . Like seriously I didn’t like that. At all & other people noticed & didn’t as well. The funny thing is Only 3 people tipped her out of 8, only one gave her $20 & other 2 $5. So, I’m just thinking to myself “lady you should be grateful that I gave you something compared to nothing. & had the nerve to only ask me for more & not ask the people who didn’t tip her & the once who did for more. I will be glad to take my $10 back & give it to someone that would be grateful & appreciate what I can give & not expect nor demand for more”. That was my only issue of this tour but other than that the people that I meet were great & the food was good. But that’s what’s really important here I guess.

Ro was our guide for the day and she took us to great local eateries. The Don Ruiz coffee stop became a daily visit for us during the entire trip. Love that the tour supports local entrepreneurs. She was full of good tips and info for Old San Juan.
