Robert, our tour guide, was accommodating, informative and very pleasant. Luqiollo beach was not as exciting as we hoped and the lunch kiosk we went to was not very good. But I give the trip 4 stars because of Robert.
I really enjoyed this tour. The weather was not perfect. The rainforest lived up to its name and we encountered some pretty hard rain during part of this tour. But everyone seemed to take this in stride and it really didn't prevent us from enjoying the experience. There were four stops on the tour. The first was at the visitor center, which featured a small restaurant, a museum, and a film about the rainforest. The second stop was at a waterfall, which made a great photo stop. Some people chose to climb the rocks beside the falls, but that was optional. The third stop was at a higher level, where we did a brief hike, some of which was uphill. Nothing major, but this tour would not work for someone with physical limitations or mobility problems. (I understand there is an alternative tour with a much heavier hiking experience.) The last stop was at an obervation tower (98 steps up and also not for those with health or mobility issues). For those who did make it to the top, there were some fantastic views. We could see all the way to San Juan, despite the heavy cloud cover. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the area and spoke very good English. He was was very friendly and happy to answer all of our questions. I would recommend this trip to those who want to explore the rainforest without having to drive. A minimum level of fitness would be required to enjoy this tour.
guide, manuel, was fantastic. el yunque was beautiful and the guide got us in and out ahead of the crowds. great pictures too. the lunch place was excellent, authentic, and cheap! luquillo beach is beautiful and also has lots of cheap food!
Amazing. We loved it.The tour guide was very knowledgable and has given us lot of information about the rainforest.The beach was an awesome place to chill.
Driver and tour guide Ricky was very friendly and informative. He was there to make our trip/tour to fit our desires and needs. Tour was just the right length. Alot of how your tour goes depends on your tour guide. Ricky was the perfect tour guide for our small group.

We went on a tour of the rain forest (El Yunque) and Luquillo beach. The whole tour we were entertained by our tour guide, Robert. Robert gave me the impression of being someone who likes what he does. He was very gregarious as well as knowledgeable about all the spots we were visiting as well as the island in general. We were glad that we took this tour, it was a positive experience.
Tour was great , Ricky the tour guide was vey informative , when I go back to Puerto Rico I will definitly use Viator Tours again... Thank you so much..
This was a great tour and good value for the money. Our guide was Tony. he was very knowledgeable and took his time to show us and explain everything we had questions on. The beach was a perfect way to end the tour.
Our trip to El Yunque was fabulous. Our guide was Robert. Robert was very knowledgeable about Puerto Rico history. El Yunque is beautiful and we wished we could have spent more time sightseeing.
Great tour. It rained for most of the day, but hey, you make the best of it. Robert was informative and knowledgeable. We had an awesome day. Thanks.
