So glad I was able to participate in this tour! Special thanks to Ricky, our guide, for his hospitable, helpful, and sometimes humorous manner and for sharing his extensive knowledge of and love for the rainforest with the group. The trip to beautiful El Yunque truly was one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of my first visit to Puerto Rico. Don't miss this!
I really liked the tour. Tony, our tour guide, was excellent. The rain forest is a fascinating place. A wonderful part of our Puerto Rico vacation.
Our tour was excellent. While it was an hour drive from our hotel, Ricky our tour guide, provided us with information about the areas we were passing and Puerto Rico during the entire drive. We made several stops in the Rainforest, and it gave us an opportunity to see waterfalls, the Atlantic meeting the Caribbean and a large variety of fauna and flora.
Tips: We brought with some granola bars and a bottle of water. Some is available in the park as well.
We didn't bring with a pillow, but could have used on on the trip back as we tired from the walking - haha.
Our tour guide was wonderful. He gave us a lot of interesting facts as pointed out points of interest on our way to El Yunque. He knew places to stand to take cool pictures and even dropped us off at a restaurant he recommended on our way back! El Yunque was beautiful!
Tony was awesome, great tour. I will take the full day tour next time
Our guide Tony was very knowledgable, friendly and fun. Enjoyed the trip immensely!!!
Was a great tour!
We had to call ahead and set up a pickup time at our hotel. The numbers provided by you were always busy and I could never get an answer. Finally got a working number from our hotel concierge.
We were looking for a tour that would take us away from San Juan for a few hours, that would not require us to drive, and that would visit someplace interesting. The tour did all that. Our guide, Joshua, was very friendly, knowledgeable, kept things moving, and took very good care of us. We got to spend a few hours away from the urban setting and to visit a rain forest in a very effortless way.
The rainforest is of a lot of fun, and our guide Francisco is awesome.
This was a great tour for our group of nine people. The weather was beautiful and we had the best host (tour guide), Ricky Ricardo. We were joined by a "dynamic-duo" and a "sole adventurer" to fill our tour group. Ricky provided great stories on the history of the rainforest and his knowledge of the ecology of the rainforest was awesome. Our tour group ranged in age from 18 years old to 60 years old, so this was the perfect tour to accommodate varying individual mobility capacities and desires for adventure. It included extensive site-seeing by air-conditioned van with short periods for walking and exploring light trails. During a previous visit to the rainforest, I participated in a full-day rainforest tour that included serious hiking on long trails. Accordingly, I was pleased that the half-day rainforest tour worked out to be a good choice for our group. Group members with some history of knee and back issues were able to handle it well and they had the option to remain in or near the van during any short walks they did not want to do. However, all our tour members were able to complete every walk on this tour and for many of them, this was the first time they experienced a real life rainforest!
The rainforest was absolutely gorgeous! Our tour guide, Tony, was fun and informative. He even made the trip getting from the hotel to El Yunque quite entertaining! I might go for the full day tour next time!
The tour guide (Javier Guzman) enhanced the experience of this fabulous trip. The tour was super easy to set up, pay for and we only had to sit back and enjoy the rest. FANTASTIC
We really enjoyed the trip. Pur guide was great.
Only downside wss the
Ricky is a fantastic guide who takes great care of his group. He pays attention to safety and makes it fun at the same time. We were lucky to have him.
A very interesting half day tour. Our guide Joshua was excellent and provided us with great information on the local geography, vegetation and animal life. An easy and relaxed tour.
Trip was excellent, Guide was knowledgeable and showed all as per trip.
Our guide was fun and informative. He took good care of his seniors.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Francis was very hospitable and was very educated about the area and the rainforest. This was one of the best experiences we have had during our travels. The price was a bargain for the transportation and the great experience!
The tour was amazing and our tour guide was fantastic! He made the tour a complete success!
Great tour and not too tiring of a hike. We were picked up at a location close to our B and B in Ocean Park, San Juan and had a very informative, nice ride to the El Yungue Rainforest. If you don't mind having a relaxing stroll (do have comfortable, non-slipping shoes), then do take this tour. It's just enough of a hike to see a waterfall and climb a tower, and enjoy the rainforest. . This is just perfect for those who don't want a wild, extensive rainforest experience. It sure was perfect for my daughter and I.
