    This tour was great mainly due to our tour guide Francisco or Frankie as he liked to be called. Frankie was very knowledgeable and extremely upbeat about his beloved rainforest. He was extremely talkative and gave very descriptive narration of everything we saw. I would highly recommend this tour and take it again if we return to Puerto Rico just to see how the rainforest continues to recover from the hurricane. Thanks again Frankie you were fantastic. We were met at our ship and returned on time as promised. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

    Isaac was a very knowledgeable resource of Puerto Rico's history and culture. We were traveling with three kids and three adults, and we ALL had a great time. The tour guide can make an experience great or a complete fail, but Isaac made it a great experience! It was just our family and one other adult on the tour. He picked us up promptly and drove us to the rainforest. It was a sight to see. It was full of lush foliage and clear waterfalls. My 10 year old son even got to swim in the river, making a memory he will always be fond of. My four year old was excited to see a coqui frog. Isaac gave us the option for a bonus stop at a fruit stand, and it was lovely. We had a huge avocado and fresh fruit smoothies, which my 13 year old really enjoyed. It was fun for all of us. I highly recommend this tour, especially with Isaac!

    I can’t say enough good things about this tour. We tried to book the El Yunke tour at our hotel but there wasn’t enough interest so I found this tour last minute and I was so glad I did! Hector was our tour guide and if I could I would rate this tour 100 stars. He was funny, gracious, prepared, and so knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the rain forest as well as the history including stories of before and after Hurricane Maria. This is a long tour which includes an easy hike to a watering hole where you could take a dip. (Wear water shoes and bathing suit). Hector provided an amazing snack he prepared himself )even sharing with other hikers not in our group) as well as other fun surprises. After the first stop he expertly drove our van thru the winding hills of the rain forest stopping frequently to show us a bird or a unique plant or picking fruit for us to taste and always telling us an interesting story along with it. Other stops along the way were beautiful waterfalls (wear hiking shoes if you want to climb the waterfall), the Yokahu Tower which is an easy climb for a beautiful view of the island. Souvenirs are available in this area. And our last stop was a restaurant where you could have a delicious lunch of local food and do more souvenir shopping. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see an unspoiled part of the island. Thank you Hector for an amazing tour we will never forget!

    We were lucky to get Frankie as our guide. He was funny, engaging and had a tremendous knowledge of Puerto Rican history in addition to his knowledge of the rain forest. We also visited a roadside eatery for some native, home cooked delicacies. It was a great day!

    I went with my family and this was definitely a must go to if you visit San Juan. The trip from San Juan was about 45 minutes and we got picked up and dropped off from the hotel. The tour guide was very informative and answered every question. I recommend this tour to friends, she was great! I had a good time, my father didn’t want to get out of the river and it started raining but we didn’t care because we had on our bathing suits, that’s how much fun we were having!

    Very satisfied how the tour went, Thank you Frankie(Francisco) for being a great guide, and the great conversations throughout the ride. It felt as if I’m just hanging out with a friend who has sooo much knowledge to impart!

    The company didn’t very organized. We needed to make several calls to find out when and where we were being picked up. But Lismar saves the day!
