I truly enjoyed the walking tour. Our guide I forgot her name was knowledgeable about the area. I didnt realize it when we booked the tour. It was a private tour. My family was only one so it very custom able to you on what you saw and do. The last hour was mainly the cruise which takes to bay so the highlight. It covered old San Juan so my next trip to Puerto Rico will spend South and West.
