San Juan & Seqway Tour - January 16, 2013

It was a windy day and many water-based port adventures were cancelled. We were few in number, gathering in the lounge ...

Filling out the disclaimers






We walked to the adjacent pier, where we checked in to the tour operators







Assigned our Segway






Our tour guide was from Ukraine, very informative, and offered to take pictures at photo-op stops












Here, 2 of the 100+ cats that have been spayed, sun and keep old town rodent-free







More Photo-ops

We are taking the Segway tour in April. Was it fun? How long were you gone? What did you see? How many people were in the group? We can't wait!

Old Fort

There are two forts - one in walking distance from the pier, the other we went to by Seqway































The chapel in the fort

On our own in Old Town

At the pier







The anchor, which was showing dirt on the points when we got off the ship in San Juan, was either cleaned or painted on our return. Disney.

Thx - like the "have camera, will travel" tag line - normally I use my Canon Ti3, but for Segway, I took the D10 (impact resistant).

It was fun - 3 of the 4 of us have done them before (Epcot, Ft Wilderness) - I don't think anyone actually needs to do the tour to cover Old Town, but it was fun. I think it lasted about 2 hours, included getting started. We left the pier, followed the water around Old Town up to the fort, then back through Old Town to the pier. There were 6 people per group. Here is a picture of our tour guide explaining what we are seeing on a side street.
