A 5-Star Culinary Adventure

Don't miss Spoon's Cocktail Tour!

"At each stop, we had a delicious hand crafted cocktail, each unique to the bar/restaurant, and our night ended at a local craft beer pub, where we were offered several samples. Pablo, our guide, was amazing! He told us the story behind each location we visited, and some history of Old San Juan, as we walked the streets between stops. We did several tours with Spoon during our stay in San Juan, and I cannot say enough about the company. I'd definitely recommend this tour go on your must do list, while in San Juan!"

A MUST do if in San Juan

If you’re not a “tour” person this will change your mind! We took the sunset food and drink tour. Our guide was Pablo. He was one of the most engaging and entertaining history teachers I’ve ever had. His knowledge base is incredible. BUT as important... the food was exceptional!!! I highly recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your trip. It will give you a great base of information and ideas for other outings. I really can’t say enough good things about the food or the guide!

A Must Do!

"My family and I just finished a tour with Pablo and IT WAS AMAZING!!!! You get to see the town of Old San Juan, get the history, as well as get to taste your way through the city!! Pablo is very knowledgeable and you can tell he loves what he does. I also love that this company only works with local places. When I visit a place I always want to support the local community and this tour does that!!! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see beautiful Old San Juan!!! Thanks Pablo for an amazing tour!! We had amazing time and very good food!!!"

History of Food and Old San Juan

"This trip was booked on a whim and quickly became a jewel of the island. Our guide Pablo was very excellent and knowledgeable about the history of Old San Juan and the history of the food. I can not express enough how much I enjoyed this experience and the pleasant company he provided. On this trip you will learn everything from how the fort was defended to the many uses of plantains at different stages of ripeness. It was extremely fun and makes me savor the food for what will be many years to come. Highly recommend this trip."

The very best food tour in Old San Juan!

This tour was amazing from beginning to end! Our guide, Rocío, was knowledgeable, fun and passionate about sharing her experience as a local "sanjuanera", making our walk meaningful in multiple ways. Each of the stops comes with either something delicious to nibble on or some interesting fact about the city, making it a rich experience without pretending to be a history lesson; more like a light and fun way of learning highlights of Puerto Rican food and culture while taking in the views and tasting fabulous food. Thank you, Rocío!
