This was the perfect day with a mix of Insta-worthy scenery, a short hike, a scary but actually easy high jump into a river and beach time. Great for a solo traveler as it is well designed to socialize with the other people on the tour. Jonathan was very sweet, easygoing, friendly and knowledgeable. He even had a special surprise for us. Would recommend!

I had my tour with Narayan and it was great! This experience was so worth the money, with transportation, the trip to and from, the amazing drive up to Yokahu Tower with interesting facts all the way on the ride there, the waterfall, the river, and then the amazing beach with a local kiosko that had great prices. Must try the Pina Colada in a pineapple! Overall, this was one of the best experiences of my life, let alone this trip!

Narayun was my tour guide. He made me feel safe with him, as this is an area of the world I have never experienced. He informed the group of a lot of cool and interesting facts about Puerto Rico. His personality was perfect, outgoing, humorous, friendly and I got a sense that doing these tours is special to him because this is where he was born and raised. Narayun answered every question I had asked. Narayun encouraged me to live the best of this experience and to take on challenges I never have. Though I did not do the cliff jump, he encouraged me, made me feel safe and was even willing to hold my hand for comfort to jump with him, no inappropriate behavior at all. Narayun made me feel like a superstar being transported around this island and like our safety came first. Narayun was very patient with late passengers as well. I look forward to doing another experience. I seen pigs and horses will at the beach. Unique fruit during the 10 minute nature walk and some cool fish in the water. I really enjoyed the experience.
