Not 8 but 3 hours
Nov 2021 • Friends
The experience it was fun and the guides as well.
My complain is that they advertise it as a trip for 8 hours where is actually a maximum of 3 hours total with the drive there. It's not worth the money for 3 hours and you can do this by yourself too.

Great tour!
Nov 2021 • Friends
We absolutely loved this tour. I wouldn’t recommend if you aren’t in decent shape. It is slippery and strenuous. Our guide, Julian was great! Luis and Mitchell were also wonderful. Favorite part of the tour was the stop at the beach. We also loved the slide.

Fun tropical tour.
Nov 2021
It was a great day - the tour guides were very friendly and informative - the hike was a nice hike and all the water activities were fun. I would recommend this tour to others. However, the title should change - not really off the beaten path since at one point there were at least 8 other tours there - to a point that the river area was super crowded.

Fun experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Frankie and Poopie were great guides, making sure we were safe and had fun at the same time. Wide range of participants and we would have liked to hike further into the rain forest than we did, but it was a fun first experience at El Yunque.

Fun adventure in the rainforest!
Sep 2021 • Family
What an adventure! This ranked up there as one of our favorite parts of the week. Our guides, Julian and Pito, were wonderful and made sure that everyone stayed safe and had a good time. By the end of the day, our whole group had become a family, which is what Julian called us when addressing the group. This is a fairly strenuous hike with lots of mud and climbing. It is not for the casual tourist, but is well worth it if you are up for it and want a memorable day in Puerto Rico.

Amazing time visiting El Yunque (with Felix!)
Jul 2021 • Couples
The El Yunque rainforest tour was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Puerto Rico. We traveled on the bus from San Juan, and our fantastic tour guide, Felix, immediately put everyone in a great mood with his friendly and fun personality. The stop halfway to the rainforest for a breakfast at a small open-air roadside market was absolutely delicious (my group had mango smoothies, chicken & beef empanadas, and coffee). Once we arrived, the rainforest hike was a well-planned and enjoyable adventure through tight and muddy trails, warm and clear natural pools, gorgeous foliage and waterfalls, complete with two natural waterslides, a rope swing, and a jump from a cliff (with five height options). Felix gave clear instructions to keep everyone safe and encouraged us all throughout the hike to keep us smiling and laughing. Although I was originally nervous when we booked the tour because I'm not particularly adventurous, I felt very comfortable because of Felix's kind and supportive manner as well as the options to opt out of some of the more adventurous stuff if needed (I did one of the lower cliffs, for example, but did feel comfortable opting into everything else). We were wearing life vests the entire time, and there were several people on our tour who couldn't swim, but were 100% included in all activities and had a great time. Felix carries a dry bag (with very limited space) for phones. My SO and I left our phones on the bus, but my best friend brought hers for pictures. There is an opportunity to hose down before the bus ride back (you will get very muddy), and the stop at Luquillo Beach for food on the way home is delicious. (Take Felix's suggestion for the mofongo and a mojito!) Overall, it was a wonderful time that I highly recommend. Thank you Felix!!!

Awesome Day with Julian and Pocho!
We used bespoke for our day of adventure on my bachelorette with Julian and Pocho as our guides. Our group of 12 had a wide range of taste for adventure (aka some of the ladies were terrified of what the day would bring) and they made everyone feel super safe and comfortable the whole time. The hike, water slides and cliff jumping was awesome but it was hanging with Julian and Pocho that made it memorable. Their personalities combined with the beauty of El Yunque made for an great day! Would definitely recommend!

BEST Experience
Aug 2021 • Family
Where do I even start? Overall, the trip was AMAZING! Our tour guides (Pito & Felix) were probably the best, you can tell they really care for their visitors. Throughout the whole experience they made sure everyone was safe and having fun (even the difficult clients). I will definitely come and do this again with the same tour guides!

Book Now! The highlight of our PR trip!
Let me just say that I called because I had a question about pickup locations. No one picked up but someone called me back 2 minutes later. It’s not often that you have businesses call you back without you leaving a message. This was an amazing first impression and it really only got better after that. The level of communication from this team was superb! I knew exactly what time I was being picked up and I even got a call to let me know they were going to be four minutes late because of traffic.
They explained how the whole day was going to go while we were on the bus ride to EL Yunque. I can’t swim and I still did everything so they are definitely amazing tour guides who will help you. Be prepared to get mud all over you. You’re going to get wet. You’re going to get dirty and then you’ll get wet again. Get ready. Bring a change of clothes to get out of the wet clothes after the tour. We walked through muddy water so do not wear your best shoes. We wore water hiking shoes from Amazon that were pretty cheap but durable. I would recommend investing in some. We still used these shoes for all our other water activities so it was worth it. After the hike we stopped at a food truck for lunch and the food was great. Overall an amazing experience and I recommend 100%.
