ماذا ستفعل

- 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 tour was about far more than architecture, and Andy was the ideal guide. Warm, knowledgeable, thoughtful, witty, he fully engaged our group. His historical and political perspectives answered so many of our questions. The final stop at the library in the Convento Hitel was a true highlight.

This was such a great option to book!! Did the SJ tour with Andy and he was so knowledgeable about the area and the buildings was definitely so nice and interesting to hear all about Old San Juan in the manner that he explained. He even gave us a list of spots to try on our own time and after the tour we made it like a scavenger hunt, it was so much fun. If you’re looking to book- look no further Andy is your guy!!

Thank you Andy! The tour was fantastic and he even sent us a huge list of his favorite local places. We went to visit one after the tour, and there were six of us there! It gets really hot during the tour, so be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat.

My friends and I loved learning about the rich history and fabric of Puerto Rico through the eyes of a passionate Architect! The beauty and vibrant history of the Old San Juan area is only truly appreciated when you understand how it started and was influenced over time. Such a great tour with a knowledgeable individual.

He provides exactly what the description says "hidden secrets of San Juan". He will definitely give you that. However, if you just want a tour showcasing the bigger picture about old San Juan, this tour is not for you. I noticed that when everyone arrived for check-in there were multiple tour guides gathering their groups....however during our tour we never crossed paths with any other tours. This is because Andy really focused on secrets and small details about the city and not the bigger picture like the other tours. This tour is completely different. Also, if you're not into facts about architecture, this tour is not for you. Know what you want before you book your San Juan tour. But, does he fulfil what is advertised, yes absolutely.
