Excellent tour!

We had a wonderful time with a great Guide, Isaac! This is a more relaxed and less adventurous tour, which us exactly what we wanted. My husband was wearing a knee brace post surgery so we were concerned, but it was perfect. We got a great overview of El Yunque, along with an authentic lunch. Isaac was very knowledgeable and very personable. Highly recommend this tour!!
The perfect variety of El Yunque experiences

Our half day tour to El Yunque was absolutely fantastic! My wife and I had spent many hours searching for a tour that was entirely in the rain forest, had a mix of adventure and relaxation, and included stops at a variety of interesting locations in the forest. This tour delivered on everything and included a stop for authentic Puerto Rican food, had bathroom stops, and an all around incredible experience thanks to our tour guide! Would recommend water shoes or change of shoes (sneakers, flip flops, etc.) for the optional rainforest river swimming part, be sure to bring bathing suit and towel!

I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a well balanced half-day in El Yunque with plenty of interesting history about the forest and the island, convient pickup (at your hotel or Airbnb), and wonderful tour guide.
Beautiful Location

We loved the gorgeous views from the tower and the hike to the river. It was wonderful to swim in the beautiful river.
Good exercise!

Great morning out , you do need to be quite fit for the hike , steep and rugged in places . But good experience.
Great relaxing time

Great time with a small group. Isaac was a fantastic guide and we had a great time just hanging out. Some moderate walking/climbing but overall a very low key experience.
Great tour!!

We had a wonderful day. Our guide Louie was informative. I left my phone in the van and within an hour Bennie was at our hotel returning it.
Must do!!

We had a nine-year-old with us and he was able to complete this excursion without any issues. Our guide, Louie, was very friendly and informative. Out of all of our cruise stops and excursions, this was everyone's favorite, the rainforest was beautiful. I would definitely recommend to everyone I know.
Book The Rainforest Tour with Louie and Benny
KELLY_C, 05-02-2023
Louie the tour guide and Benny the owner were very friendly and knowledgeable about the rainforest. So glad that we chose this trip amongst the others. It was shorter (5 hours compared to 8 hours), but so robust. Louie really encouraged the group to partake in the little nuances of the rainforest and explained it's importance. Hiking was minimal and we took breaks. This was an exceptional tour for us as first-time visitors!
Thank you Benny

Very nice trip
