We had one of the best guides that we have ever had! He was very knowledgeable about the caves and the Observatory. What added to the trip was him answering our other questions about Puerto Rico and the fun things like where to get good seafood, and other must see attractions in Puerto Rico. We went on three other trips in Puerto Rico and he was the best!
We had the best tour guide! After our trip to the caves he took us to a really great lunch place, this restaurant has the best mafongos.

Saved us from a long drive on unfamiliar roads. The caves were astounding. I didn't know the Caribbean had caves so large.
We enjoyed our trip. Ricardo was amazing, picking us up on time and giving us many bits of history and insider info. The caves were awesome and I would highly recommend. The Observatory was interesting, but the approx 8 minute trek up the hill from the parking lot to the observatory was hot and tiresome, but in the end worth it. The hour and 20 minute trip from San Juan to these sites was worth every penny to see the landscape and wonder of Puerto Rico. It was nice to have an experienced driver who knew the way as both places seemed difficult to find and included twisting and turning roadways edging rather steep cliffs. Gave it a 4 star rating due to the hike up to the observatory which makes this tour challenging to physically impaired individuals.
LOVED the caves. Robert our guide was AWESOME AND TOLD US SO MUCH about the island. Observatory was also interesting but we mainly went for the caves.
The experience was good but it would have been more complete if we were allowed more time to venture in the Arecibo Observatory (some people like reading the details in the exhibition). Additionally, the tour should have timed with the Camuy Cave group's movie screening time so that we get the full experience and price paid for. Overall though, I had fun with the amount of time we had at each location.
Our tour guide Francis was very knowledgeable of the areas we visited. The caves were an incredible experience!
Please read carefully, because you're really just paying for the transportation from place to place. We had no guide, driver said very little to us on way to caves and nothing on way home. The caves experience was amazing and so unique. I highly recommend it. The observatory should have been free because it was so lame and not worth the money.
Enjoyed the park and observatory. Thought the fee was a bit expensive considering we still had to pay entry fees for both places.
Caves were amazing. Arecibo observatory not as well maintained but interesting. Lunch was great. Recommend trip for great trip through interior of island.
Tour guide Roberto was great, he made the long trip interesting. Local lunch was fun. Cave Park was wonderful, Observatory mediocre.
Tour guide was very friendly and informative while driving us to the site, but having to separately have to pay park entry fees was disappointing given the money paid for the tour. Since guides at the sight gave the actual tours except for the potential to get lost, I could have rented a car a driven myself.
