The tour guide was great. He was very informative and took his time to answer questions.
AWESOME. Sammy was a great tour guide, very informative. We stopped for a wonderful lunch. If you liked the movie AVATAR, you will love El Yunque Rainforest.
Definitely would recommend this tour. Great for adults and kids alike.
We were very satisfied with our trip to the rain forest with Sammy. He was courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. We also stopped for lunch at a local restaurant.
This is well worth the trip, a short day to the rain forest, just enough to see what you want, and nothing to boaring or time consuming, this trip moves at a good pace, I've been on it twice now.... this will get you back to the resort and enjoy some afternoon sun on the beach the rest of the day. Great value for a good wake me up exercise.
Our guide, Robert, was extremely knowledgeable about the many facets of the rain forest. He identified vegetation and birds. Made bird calling which elicited responses from other birds. He was also a wealth of information about the San Juan area. Anyone interested in the ecological system of the rain forest would find the tour worthwhile.
Our tour was great. Our tour guide, Debbie, was so informative and told some wonderful personal stories from her childhood, when she was visiting the rainforest. She stopped often, and took us on walks into the rainforest and showed us many plants and other features not on any guide. We all voted and stopped for lunch in the rainforest, where we had local dishes that Debbie explained. She was very helpful and make us all feel great.
Tony was awesome! He knew so much about the rain forest, having grown up there, he could answer any question. The forest was beautiful and the hike was easy. I was a little worried because I just had a knee replacement, but it was fine. I would definitely recommend this trip, especially if you get Tony.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. My only regret is that I took this tour on my last day in Puerto Rico. I wished that I had taken it sooner. My tour guide, Javier, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing. Had I taken this tour sooner, I would have had all of the information that I needed to make my time in PR even more enjoyable (ideas for day trips via ferry, etc).
Our tour guide Tony was incredible. The tour was absolutely incredible. Highly recommendd
Robert did a great job. His knowledge about the Rain Forrest was amazing.
Excellent tour. Our guide Javier was very personable and knowledgeable.
Amazing and beautiful I would recommend to everyone going to Puerto Rico to experience if capable, oh and bring a poncho :)
This was a wonderful trip. Our guide took us through the back roads to get to El
Yunque to see more neighborhoods, which was good. The rainforest was amazing and our guide had been going there since she was a child. She knew the place and it's history and gave us wonderful information on the way and during the trip. Don't miss this experience if you are in beautiful Puerto Rico!
Our tour guide was really great and helpful. He told us about other great things to do in Puerto Rico and how to get to water holes to swim in. This was a good tour but it was low impact. We are young so we wanted more hiking so go with the high impact tour.
Our tour guide Robert was not only funny but informative.
The half day trip to the rain forest was just enough to promote interest in the rainforest as well as Puerto Rican culture and history.
Highly recommended as a don't miss this opportunity trip
Very informative and enjoyable. The lunch stop was an added treat. Our guide Robert was wonderful.
My wife and I had a great tour. Sammy was very knowledgeable about the area. The hike was very easy to do and you got to see alot of the area. Sammy would explain everything very good about the different systems in the rain forest. After the tour of the rain forest he stopped by a great small restaurant so that we could have lunch.
We would highly recommend this tour and ask for Sammy as your driver. You won't regret taking this tour.

Robert was an excellent tour guide. Very professional, yet relaxed and willing to talk about anything you are interested in. A very easy walk in Rain Forest, no hiking involved. For me that was disappointing, but I knew beforehand I didn't have enough te for the longer tour.
The half-day trip was just enough rain forest exploring for us. You got to see the amazing views. Our group was only 16 people and our tour guide, Sammy, was the BEST!!! He provided us with lots of information about Puerto Rico and the rain forest. He even made a stop at a road side lunch spot after our tour which had cheap, delicious food. A great way to see and learn about the rain forest. The views are really worth the trip!
