Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, picked us up in a timely manner, and told stories with good humor and warmth.
Rather a lot to take in in one morning, but he did his best! Would certainly recommend this service.

Tour guide Sammi was very good.Half day trip is fine. A little disappointed in the lack of flowering fauna. Well worth the price. Enjoyed the stop to sample the local food on the way back.

The beach was nice and the rainforest was such a beautiful experience.
Review by John N, April 2013
Wasn't all that impressed by either rain forest or beach. Guide/driver was friendly and talkative, but not knowledgable about local flora/fauna/animals. Couldn't tell us anything about the rain forest.

Our guide was Tony, and he was wonderful! The hike was easy on the down-hill, a little more rough on the up-hill. Definitely bring snacks. Water area is really crowded and no beach, just rocks, so you have to be very careful. Good trip, but wanted to see more.

Spent WAAAAYYYY too much time at the rainforest visitor center. What should have been a maybe a 15 minute stop turned into over an hour. Wasted time that could have been used at a stop at the other roadside waterfall or the observation tower inside the park instead of just whizzing by them. Don't tell people to pack their own snacks and water before the tour, and then offer to let folks buy these things at the visitor center as well as sit down and eat them there??? This is supposed to be a hiking outing, not a "buy snacks and browse the gift shop" outing. The hike down to the falls and back was great even though our "guide" was very loud in her descriptions of trees, plants, etc. Most folks come into the woods to have a quiet, reflective experience. We finally just had to leave the group to enjoy the hike. The tour bus was comfortable but the driver needs to wear a microphone to be heard completely in the back of the bus...maybe that's why she was yelling on the trail??? Don't miss El Yunque, but be picky about who takes you there.

We had to wait for people to join the tour, which they never did. This resulted in a shortened tour. we were not even able to finish watching a seven-minute video before being rushed out of the theater. waste of money. Could have done a simple walking tour better alone with a guide book

Tour guide Robert was very knowledgable !!! Bus was running a little behind due to some sort of car collision on the road , yet it was still an amazing tour . El Yunke Rain Forrest is a must see while in Puerto Rico !!!!

We were picked up on time in a spotless van by a very accomodating tour guide. He was wonderful to talk to. He knew about the history of the island, the rainforest and gave us many bits of information about Puerto Rico. The rainforest walk was just enough for those who really aren't "Rainforest" kind of people. It was safe, the views were beautiful and the weather was wonderful. I highly recommend this outing.

Had a great time on the tour. Our guide Hector was awesome and very informative. He took us on a special trip to an ancient Taino cave on the way to the forest and also took us to eat some real Puerto Rican food after our tour. Highly recommend. Didnt feel rushed at all.

A rewarding excursion away from the city of San Juan.

There is no better way to take a tour than with a local guide to whom you can ask question after question--about anything!
