    Amazing. Guide and activities were top notch. I would come back just to hang out there. Rain Forrest

    The vast amount of information received within a short period but tour was well informed. After hurricane it is wonderful to see nature bounce back resilience in survival.

  • 09-Aug-2022

    This tour is the perfect way to experience El Yunque. You get to see and learn a lot about the rainforest without having to tackle the overwhelmingness of it on your own. Francisco was a fantastic tour guide, one of the best I’ve ever had as a frequent tour taker - funny, knowledgeable, and extremely kind. The whole day was such a pleasure. Definitely wear your bathing suit for the swim in the river/waterfalls at the end—amazing experience!!

    Franky was wonderful, so knowledgeable and made our experience rich with his personality and intelligence sharing key aspects of plants, animals, how resources connect and are essential. I was hoping to do more hiking but my teenage son preferred the mix of the drive, sites, short hike and dip in the water.

    This was an amazing tour!! We had so much fun!! Frankie is wonderful! Do not hesitate to go on this tour. It was a perfect day!

    Our tour guide was excellent and provided interesting information on the history of the rainforest and its flora and wildlife, and Puerto Rico and it’s history. This is the 2nd protected national park in the US after Yellowstone. One highlight was being able to swim in one of the rivers with rapids after a trail hike.

    The tour was very educational and adventurous. This was my first time hiking in a rainforest an I do not regret any of it! Felix and Elias were very friendly, made you feel like family, and created an upbeat environment just by being genuinely passionate about their job. I'd recommend this tour guide in a heartbeat. Thanks Felix and Elias for making this tour memorable! In Felix's words, "Chan Chan Chan!" 😂😆

    We had Wolfgang as our tour guide and he was awesome!!! Would recommend this trip for sure, especially with Wolfgang! He was super friendly and made sure everyone had a blast and was safe during the whole trip!

    We did the tour today and it was great! Not too challenging for those that maybe skip gym day. Frankie was so very knowledgeable of all things El Yunque and also Puerto Rico. I highly recommend. It was a great tour and well worth it!

    Frankie really made the whole experience amazing. It was a last minute decision for us to take this tour but we are so glad we did. It was a one of a kind adventure hosted by a fun and informative local. I would highly recommend this tour it was the best “taste” of the rainforest.
