Narayan is the best and made our hike extra special! The waterfall is gorgeous!
Shahdad_S, Aug 2022
The drive up to the entrance of the trail was filled with the history of puerto rico and gave us great insight on the political status. We stopped at a market for a small breakfast and continued to a view point for pictures. During our hike we saw the waterfall through the rainforest and were able to take photos along the way. Best part of all was the waterfall! We got to jump from three different heights and Narayan taught us safely how to jump!! It was an extremely memorable experience and we are grateful to have had Narayan as our guide! He is the absolute best! Thank you Narayan!!
SydneyAbraham, Jul 2022
Our tour guide was the best ever! He was so informative about Puerto Rico and its rich history! His driving made us feel very comfortable as he navigated through the mountains and terrain of the country! He even taught me how to dive off a cliff that was 50 feet high, something i never imagined doing in my life!
An Awesome Experience in PR
Gabrielle_L, Jul 2022
I definitely would recommend this tour 1000%. Narayan, Lismar, and their daughter are amazing tour guides and extremely knowledgeable. They make you feel a part of their family. This tour was a surprise birthday gift for my bf in Jun '22. He cannot swim and had a blast!! He even did the cliff jump, unassisted! This attests to Narayan and Lismar's personalities and professionalism. The hike to the waterfall is a bit challenging but, doable. They guide you through and make sure we were altogether. Various ages groups, physique types, etc. were on our tour and everyone raved how much fun they had. At the waterfall, you can chill, swim to the waterfall, cliffjump, etc. No pressure. Narayan is awesome and he makes you feel so comfortable in the water. He even assisted me with the cliffjump because I was afraid of the height! Also, I mentioned my bf's bday the night prior and if we could do something special for him. After the tour, they surprised him with gifts, cupcakes, and had everyone sing Happy Birthday. WE were truly surprised. Never expected so much!! I cannot put into words how amazing this family is. We plan on reaching out to them when we visit PR again. THANKS NARAYAN & LISMAR!! ~Brandon and Gabrielle
Great Hike, beautiful waterfall!
Beata_H, Jun 2022
My family and I just did EL Yunque hike and waterfall tour on Father’s Day! It was incredible, beautiful views. At times it was difficult climbing, I’m so out of shape - with the help of Narayan, his lovely wife Lismar and their sweet daughter ; I did it. They made sure we were comfortable and safe the entire time. They were such sweet and down to earth people; very genuine! Very knowledgeable about the forest and just overall a really nice family! You can tell how much they enjoy and love what they do and it shows. My daughters loved it, especially my youngest. Narayan and Lismar, hands down best tour guides! It was so sweet that their daughter joins them and helps out- such a polite personable young lady ( great job mom and dad). My husband and I highly recommend this and any other tour by this couple. We had a great time!! Thank you guys!!!
Great Tour Guides, Beautiful waterfall and great food
Abby_H, Jun 2022
Our guide Lismar and her daughter were amazing!! It was a beautiful waterfall and the hike was the perfect distance! After the hike the food spot she took us to was so yummy! I loved that it was a local Puerto Rican spot.
El Yunque waterfall
Jennie_V, Apr 2022
Lismar & Yahany were our tour guides and they were so amazing! I loved every single part of this tour! Lismar is full of cool facts, stories, tips and jokes. This experience was the best part of my trip and I’m so happy we were able to go see a waterfall, swim and even jump into the water. We stopped at a local store before we arrived to the trail to grab snacks, then stopped at the top of the hill to enjoy the view. On our way back we stopped for lunch and she helped everyone order to make it easy. Honestly, don’t hesitate to book this tour and I hope your guide is Lismar! When I go back I want to go again with her, she’s seriously the best! Thank you for such a great experience and memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Amazing time at El Yunque!
Lloyd_F, Mar 2022
This tour was the highlight of my trip! My friends and I had an amazing time. Lismar and Naryan were amazing tour guides. They were very helpful, patient, enthusiastic and passionate about the work they do. We highly recommend them!
Guide took us through the...
Paul_M, Mar 2022
Guide took us through the rain forest to a secluded waterfall and pond where we swam. This was away from the tourist crowds to a secret place that only locals know about. Highly recommend Seeing Puerto Rico your company.
Exciting Adventure!
Michael_D, Mar 2022
Lismar was an excellent guide, and treated us like family during out hike. Safety was clearly paramount for her and Narayan, and they allowed us to push our comfort zone while ensuring our safety. We enjoyed swimming at the waterfall, cliff jumping, and a delicious lunch afterwards. Thanks so much Lismar!
Beautiful, challenging, and fun
Laura_C, Mar 2022
Narayan and Lismar are delightful, charming, and knowledgeable, and they were wonderful guides on a very slippery and muddy hike - making all of us feel cared for and capable. And the falls are gorgeous. You should do this.
Just awesome hike to waterfall 😍
Sandeep_K, Mar 2022
It was really a great hike to the fall and Narayan he was a fantastic person guided us very well. We don’t know basic swimming also but he took us to the waterfall which is really appreciated. Well guided, beautiful views and he explained each and everything about the Puerto Rico and about the forest. Much recommend trip 😍🤗👍
Perfect day trip

Great hike
George_R, Sep 2021
I myself loved the ride up the mountain road, one can see Puerto Rico from a different vantage point, away from the resorts. The beautiful hike to the waterfall was nice. Best of all for me being from NC, the lack of mosquitos and ticks was wonderful! Our guide was great, not only in giving information while on the trail, but information about PR and it’s history. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
jessica_g, Aug 2021
Honestly it was the most memorable experience I have done. Definitely recommend it. Tour guide was amazing.
Amazing guides! Amazing waterfall!
Stacey_H, Aug 2021
Lismar and Narayan were amazing tour guides. They explained the history, the nature and the culture of PR. Loved the natural beauty of the rainforest and experiencing the waterfall. They made us feel like family!
A custom tour with an amazing guide who treats you like family
Jane_H, Aug 2021
This was a terrific tour of not only El Yunque, but also of the history and culture of PR. Our guide, Narayan, treated all of us like we were friends from out of town who he proudly shared his heritage and native land with. We took a brief tour up to a few scenic vantage points while he gave us a sense of what life is like here. Then we climbed down through a custom pathway through the dense trees and plant life down to a beautiful waterfall and spring area. There were several teens and families on the tour and we all took turns jumping into the water off of the rocks around us, even sliding down a waterfall slide. It was a real blast. Narayan was an excellent tour guide, customizing his tour to his travelers. When my husband asked him about his favorite foods, he stopped at a food stand so all of us could sample several of the signature foods, plus a sesame seed drink that was delicious. He took endless pictures for all of us so we could enjoy our tours to the fullest. We all felt like we made a friend that day and that he shared a true local experience with us. It was incredible and I highly recommend this trip. We made some great memories on this excursion. Note: this isn't a tour where you're climbing the entire time. Our total climbing time was probably about an hour or so. It was a steep and slippery climb, though, and Narayan helped a few people in our group who needed assistance. Definitely a nice workout with plenty of time swimming and floating in the lagoon by the waterfall.

Nature immersion fun
YONEKA_P, Jul 2021
I loved this experience! For someone who wants to enjoy nature without the crowd do this tour! The tour guides were amazing, patient, and kind and fun! Very patient with my 7 year old godson and giving him the confidence to do scary things like jumping off a cliff. My mom now has more confidence to get in the water and was not blown away or traumatized by the difficulty level of the hike or the swim and falls. The tour guide helped my mom slowly gain her confidence and I appreciate that. Thank you. My friends and family will definitely be back.
Amazing experience
Saraeya_H, Apr 2021
