I will take you to the local coffee shops and restaurants. I will also show some of the local bars in La Placita, with local prices and atmospheres.
I always love the unique character of the barrio. And you will too!

It was great to hear the back stories to many of the murals. One can appreciate them on their own, but knowing he tries to talk to the artists means you can get their take on it as well.

Loved this tour. The art is incredible and having Giovanni to guide and explain the art and the art scene in Santurce was essential. We would not have done this tour on our own and even if we had we would not have learned anything about the genesis of the murals or anything about any of the artists. I highly recommend this tour.

Giovanni was a great guide. He has a lot of knowledge about the artists and neighborhood. I'm so glad we booked this, we never would have experienced this part of PR without it. He even gave me some ideas on where to stay to next time we are in the island!

Giovanni brought us around to see some of the more prominent art work and was able to tell us about the art and the artist. Although we may have been able to discover and view many of the murals by wandering the neighborhood around Calle Cerra, Giovanni's knowledge about the murals, the artists, the sponsors, and the neighborhood, enhanced the experience and made it worth the price.

We really enjoyed the tour, it was wonderful to discover Santurce and the street art all around us. Giovanni did a great job pointing out different art and telling us the stories about it. We would not be able to do it on our own. The donut shop was great and so was the Aromas cafe. La Placita visit was great as well.
