The tour will begin at Plaza Colon (Columbus Square). You will get an overview of the city and what you are going to see. This is a private tour, so it can be customized according to your wishes.

We'll visit San Cristobal Fort (the largest fort built in the hemisphere) where you will get to know the tunnels, dungeons, cannonballs, sentry boxes, etc. You can take a walk through town on foot or by trolley and your guide will educate you about the area around El Morro Fort (you can visit both forts if you want).   The tour can continue on to the Western part of the town, where you can see churches, convents, plazas, chapels and more! You will see La Fortaleza, the oldest executive mansion in the hemisphere (the Governor has been living there since the mid 1500s). The tour will finish at the Plaza de Armas.   Please Note: Listed price is per group. 1 adult = 1 group

The price is per group of up to six people, so the price is the same whether your group size is just one person or six. However, it isn't $219.50 so maybe your question is about some other tour?
