Our tour guide, Danny, was AWESOME! He was funny, a bit goofy, and overall great. He combined his knowledge of the culture of Old San Juan with some great food and drink stops. We even squeezed in one or two extra stops and had an even better experience. Our only complaint is the vague meeting instructions given to us online. Since there are several Banco Popular locations, pinpointing the correct one would help.
Thank you, Danny, for being the fearless leader of the Mango Pineapple group!

Javier was awesome! He shared information about the history of old San Juan as we walked to each of our food locations. It was fun to eat authentic a Puerto Rican food, and it was more food than we could eat. A very fun experience!
