Што ќе правите

- We will be exploring the 500 year old walled city of Old San Juan, discovering secret corners and little-known spots full of charm and steeped in history, that remain unnoticed to the casual visitor. We will walk through Old San Juan’s blue cobblestoned streets, accompanied by a knowledgeable local architect, learning about how the city was built in this rocky island jutting out to the sea, observing the urban layout, constructive methods and architectural details of the Spanish colonial buildings and defensive structures. In this 2 hour stroll you'll experience historical architecture with an insider, not just as a tourist, since we will be visiting private residences, convents and places with limited access. You'll have a chance to peer into underground cisterns, wonder at frescoed chapels, climb rooftops to explore hidden towers, and basque in secluded Spanish patios.

Through my work as an architect, I've come to appreciate the fine classical tradition in many of Puerto Rico’s historic buildings, in the layout of its towns, and the clever design of its old homes. The quality and rich detail of our small island’s historic architecture, which spans across 500 years of history is impressive. Concerned by how little known our architectural heritage is to outside visitors and even to the locals, in 2011, I founded a nonprofit, volunteer-based institution focused on educating the public about Puerto Rico’s spectacular historical environment.

This was one of the best experiences I could hav signed up for in Puerto Rico. If you want to escape the tourist traps of PR and feel the environment of the island definitely sign up for this experience. Bring plenty of water with you because it can be really hot on some days.

Andy was amazing!!! It was my mom and I’d first day in Puerto Rico so we wanted to do an off the beaten path tour in Old San Juan. Andy is so personable and really wants his guests to feel like family. Not only did he give us a history lesson of Old San Juan with the architecture but he gave us INCREDIBLE suggestions for additional things to do with our stay that was really such a special addition we have never had with another tour guide before. We would suggest anyone to book a tour with Andy!!!
