Family friendly rainforest excursion
, Aug 2022
Amazing experience! Louis & Benny we’re awesome tour guides. We learned a ton about the island’s history, got to explore a rainforest and swim in a river, and ended with some local food. Kids (7 & 4) both had a blast as well. Highly recommend!
Great tour and staff!

Friendly, helpful staff! Texted in advance to agree on pickup and were great guides! Several stops at landmarks and plenty of time to enjoy and take pictures. I should have brought water shoes, the river was difficult to walk with barefeet. Fully enjoyable tour!

The tour guide we got was Louis and he is one of a kind! Thank you for an incredible day. He was very knowledgeable, and engaging with each member of the group.
Great day in the rainforest!
, Jul 2022
Perfect pace. Issac was a great guide! We visited and climbed the tower, stopped at a waterfall (optional climb), then walked to a place to swim. Lunch was after at a place Isaac picked and it will have something for everybody! If you want to visit the rainforest, this is a good intro. We had ages 9 to 60+, your pace is your pace.
Thank u Isaac!

Our tour guide Isaac was fantastic! Personable, attentive, & made sure the group was accounted for at all times. I also appreciate that he stuck to the schedule to make sure we were able to get to our later activities in time.

Wonderful Tour!
, Jul 2022
Albany was a wonderful guide! He was waiting for us before our pick up time, and he was ready to go. He was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a wealth of history and culture on our drive to and from El Yunque. We were so thrilled we did this tour!
, Jul 2022
Issac is AMAZING! We were looking for something that our multigenerational family could do. We spanned in age from 7-64. This was the perfect trip. Issac is very engaging and wonderful with children.
Great guide, great trip

Hardy thanks to my guide Albeny. Went beyond the call of duty. Very Friendly and ,
Perfect Casual Half-Day Trip to the Rainforest
, Jul 2022
The trip was exactly what we wanted. A 15 min walk through the forest to a river you can swim in, a short drive to a lookout tower with amazing views, and a stop at a beautiful waterfall. We wanted a casual half day trip that did not require hiking, water slides, or cliff jumping. This was perfect and Albeny was great guide with tons of information.

Our tour guide Isaac is the bomb he was so thorough, and knowledgeable that he gave the tour a perfect balance of fun and education. Isaac was prompt, professional and safety was his main priority. I would definitely recommend this tour and Isaac. He is truly an assets to the company.. thank you Isaac
Great Half Day to El Yunque
, Jun 2022
Isaac was a great tour guide for El Yunque. Knowledgeable about the area and rainforest. Tour was as advertised and also included a stop at a local food stand for a quick lunch-delicious! Highly recommend this tour for a good half day trip to see the highlights of El Yunque. Didn't require any strenuous hiking or river walking like other tours might.
One happy family tour
, Jun 2022
This trip to the rainforest was magnificent. Our tour guide (Alex) was very knowledgeable and humorous, which allowed everyone to feel comfortable and well informed. The walk through was not vigorous. We had a 5yr old with us and he did just fine. A few hills, but accompanied by so much vegetation and scenery. We highly recommend this tour
Perfect for a large group tour
, Jun 2022
Excellent tour guide and perfect for a large group. The tour started and ended on time, was informative and fun - highly recommend!
Great day!
, Jun 2022
We had a great tour guide. He was every knowledgeable and fun! He was patient and did not rush us on the tour.
Worth exploring!
, Jun 2022
I really enjoyed this tour. The walk through the rainforest was short and sweet (approximately 15 minutes each way with explanatory stops along the way with detailed commentary). The guide was very knowledgeable and we chose the right time to go as it was not too crowded. Water shoes or gripped sneakers/ankle boots are recommended until you reach Rio Mameyeyes y Rio de la Mina.
Nice day trip
, Jun 2022
Lois was a fun and incredibly knowledgeable guide. He also knew everyone in El Yunque and was able to provide us with local history beyond what you would find in the history books. We would have liked a little more time to take pictures, but overall worth the trip.
Easy Hike, Beautiful Views - Definitely Recommend
, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Puerto Rico and it’s history. We really enjoyed the short hike, the river/swim, the tower with great views, and the waterfall.
Personalized Adventure
, May 2022
Tour guide was flexible and accompanied us throughout the adventure. Provided details on the tour about the excursion and the islands history. Was able to provide free water (lunch is separate). We saw the lookout tower, waterfall, and went swimming in the fresh river.
Highlight of our trip !
, May 2022
We had an amazing time with Isaac as our tour guide. He was super friendly and knowledgeable! My favorite part was natural pool area at the end of the tour . We were able to swim with the fishies and really take in the beautiful ambiance of the rainforest. Trip ended with a visit to a local lunch spot with delicious fruit smoothies.
Fun, Exciting and Refreshing!
, May 2022
We had a great tour with our tour guide, Beni. The tour had adequate time at all the three stops - the tower, waterfall and the river for the dip. The hike to the dip was very scenic and gives a good sense of the thick, lush vegetation that is typical of the rain forest. Beni was excellent in his descriptions of the flora and fauna as well as the local lifestyle. He was very pleasant and courteous. Highly recommend this tour. If you are thinking if one has to get wet on this tour, not really. You can chose to sit by the water and just dip your feet and soak in the surroundings.
