Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He picked us up near the port just as agreed. He took us to the beginning of the trail, talked to us a bit about what we would see and was waiting for us at the end of the trail when we were done. It was nice to go at our own pace... More

We stayed at the Wyndham resort and booked this tour. Our tour guide, Lizmar picked us up from the resort. She was on time and ready for us. She was an awesome tour guide! Great sense of humor, very knowledgeable and friendly! We enjoyed our tour and recommend having her as a tour guide!

Because my son was getting married on the island, this was my family's first trip to Puerto Rico. What a great and fabulous experience. Our assigned guide, Lizmar picked us up at our resort at the scheduled time and immediately after introducing herself, the tour began. As we drove to the El Yunque rain forest we learned a large amount... More

Sr. Robles, Luis, was the best tour guide ever. He gave a thorough history of Puerto Rico from 1400's to today on the way from hotel to rain forest. Considerate of my fear of heights, assured me I could do The trails, and gave my bossy 7 y.o. son a job of leading us to keep him focused. Highly recommended... More

This was a great way to experience the beauty of the rain forest. Lismar is an excellent guide with extensive knowledge about the history and vegetation of the El Yunque rain forest, as well as Puerto Rican culture and history. Her background as a school teacher showed as she made this a fun and interesting trip for our group of... More

The booking experience was odd to begin with - I emailed Louie to book a tour and he confirmed quickly, but would not tell me what to plan to bring on the tour until I "emailed again a few days before the tour to reconfirm". I emailed from Puerto Rico less than 48 hours to "reconfirm" as he asked, and... More

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Lismar was extremely knowledgeable and full of energy and enthusiasm. She went out of her way to make this a memorable experience. She even agreed to extend the tour so we could spend a couple of hours at Fajardo beach after the rain forest. The best.

Lismar our guide did a great job taking our group of 6 through the trail and explaining the history and unique flora of the forest in her enthusiastic Puerto Rican style. She has a great eye for finding "on the spot" items as we walked which helped pace the hike. We loved the way the walk was planned. Lismar sent... More

Full service tour with self service price. Really, Lismar, our guide, did everything for us. She was fun, knowledgeable, full of energy, brought us all from point A to point B in comfort. This tour was much more affordable than others we did while in PR. I highly recommend this trip. Was a once in a lifetime experience.

Louie has a deep knowledge of every single tree, plant, flower and animal in Puerto Rico. He shared a tremendous amount of insight into the rain forest itself, Puerto Rico's history, and geopolitics. He made the history and background come alive with stories. His style is friendly, easygoing, and he did not rush any of us. The rainforest itself is... More
