One of a kind trip!
Farzeen_A, Nov 2022
One of a kind trip to the the waterfalls, cave, coves, a remote beach and stopping at a local streetfood snack shop. So glad we booked this trip. Beautiful landscape and views. One suggestion would be to keep life jackets for adults and kids. We were unable to go to one of the waterfalls since there were no life jackets on hand, and some people in the party were not strong swimmers. Other than that the waterfall we went to that was shallow was gorgeous.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Hi Farzeen, Thank you so much for that suggestion. We absolutely will keep life jackets available for the next trip. We thank you so much for this amazing review. We hope to see you again soon.
We Experienced very local beaches, food and neighborhood
Angelica_M, Oct 2022
Fabian gave us the local places, introduced very traditional Puerto Rican pastelitos and delicious pastries. He took us to local beaches and all little roads . We had a good experience.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Hi Angelica, We’re so happy to hear that Fabian was a great host on your tour and that you enjoyed all of our delicious Puerto Rican cuisine.
Highly recommend Luis our tour guide
Caroline_H, Oct 2022
Luis our tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable. He was a pleasure to tour with. He had water for us and was prepared for anything. In an effort to take us to a beach he even drove thru deep waters in his personal car after the heavy rains flooded the local roads. He keep a happy pleasant disposition despite all complications. It was a lovely experience.
Angela_S, Aug 2022
Beautiful cliffs, waterfalls, beaches! Loved seeing the beauty of nature in PR! Definitely worth the price and a fun-filled full day!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Angela!!!! We greatly appreciate your help review and are happy that you are enjoyer with every minute of it! Thank you!
Areli_M, Jul 2022
This was by far the best part of my trip to Puerto Rico! We booked last minute and Tania was able to accommodate us and even took us on the tour herself! She is very knowledgeable about the island and took us to places that most tours don’t offer. She was fun and interacted with us on every part of this experience! I would definitely book her again
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Areli, It was so amazing have you and your family on our tour and it was my pleasure showing you guys The Real PR
Pack well. You will get wet (and dirty)
Mark_B, Jul 2022
This is an active tour…you will be waist high (or higher) walking though river water, climbing on rocks, and getting wet. Ensure all travelers in your tour party are up to this. The description is a tad light on the reality of the details on what to expect. Bring a change of clothes, towel, and good quality foot ware. Plan as if you will fall down flat in the mud, be soaking wet, and still have four more hours of the tour to go. It’s good to see nature up close. Great photo opps on this tour. Just plan to pack more than you need. Also the hiking on jagged coral rock is not for everyone. You don’t have to be “fit” for this tour but if you’re not steady on your feet and nimble, the hikes are not fun and there are plenty of places you can twist an ankle or get cut badly by falling. Not everyone on my tour planned so well. Lunch is also just a street side counter restaurant for $6-10 meals and drink. Nothing to rave about.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
So just to be clear The second waterfall optional. You’re not obligated to do the 5-7min walk through the river and over the rocks to see the the larger waterfall. The condition of the water is based on the weather and isn’t always muddy. But you’re that portion of the tour is for a little more active people. And as far as food goes we try to support small family local business offering local cuisines our apologies if it didn’t meet your personal standards.!
Amazing Experience !!! Book/Request with Paola.
Chyna_F, Jun 2022
Let me just start off by saying our tour guide Paola was amazing. She was so personable and knowledgeable about the island. My brother and I went on a trip to PR for his 26th birthday and this entire day was nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend booking if you are adventurous and desire to see great sights. This experience was the best part of the trip and I can't wait to visit these places again. Paola took so many pictures of us and documented so much of our trip for memories to last a lifetime. Again she is amazing everyone should request her to have an even better experience. For how much we got to explore the price is a bargain and it all was well worth it!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hiiii Chyna, your review truly wowed me, as I’m so happy to that our tour was the highlight of your brothers birthday 🥳 trip. We truly love providing our guests with unforgettable memories. So thank you so much for this amazing 5 star review
Must book!
Cristina_D, Jun 2022
Such an amazing tour! The views were incredible and our tour guide Paola made it so memorable. First time having a private tour and it’s so worth it being the only ones and you can take your time doing the tour and taking in all the views in front of you. Our guide was the sweetest ever and was very patient with us. Took lots of photos of us enjoying the day. Overall wonderful experience!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Cristina, we’re so glad to hear that Paola did an amazing job on your tour and that you enjoyed all of the views! We appreciate your kind words and look forward to seeing you again int future.
Family fun

Thank you so much for your 5 star review, we ‘re happy that you and your family enjoyed your day with your guide. Thanks for coming!
Best Day in Puerto Rico
Eary_W, Jun 2022
We got everything we wanted from this private tour. Our guide was Paola and she was amazing. She was flexible and patient with us at each of the planned stops and transferred more knowledge than we could absorb about Puerto Rican food, history, and social issues. We liked her instantly. Each stop offered something very different from the last and was an EXCELLENT way to get out of San Juan for a day without getting lost or hurt. Don't miss this one if you have the time and even an iota of an adventurous spirit....just come with the proper clothing items to be able to enjoy each location.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Eary, We're so pleased that your private tour with Paola, fulfilled all of your expectations. We're so proud of our guide for taking extreme care of your group and we hope to see you in the future on one of our other tours.

Great tour, waterfalls were a blast!
April_C, May 2022
Nelson was a fantastic guide. I think we loved the waterfalls the most but the entire trip was fantastic. I’m older (60) and we climbed a lot of rocks. Nelson made sure to take the safest way for me and pointed out rocks under the water so I wouldn’t trip. He also gave great tips the day before, like buying water shoes at Walmart ( there’s a big one in San Juan)
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi 👋 April, we’re so glad to hear that Nelson was a great guide and kept you safe during your experience. Happy that you truly enjoyed day. And we Hope to explore with you again soon. ❤️🇵🇷
Great experience, greater tour guide
Howard_S, May 2022
The tour was great. Seeing the various sites and spending some time learning more about each of the areas was reallyy nice. Catherine, our guide, was incredibly friendly and made the tour very fun and relaxing. The food we had was great and we had a nice talk about a ton of various things. If I was in Puerto Rico again, I would highly consider using this tour agency again. My parents also enjoyed this tour immensely.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Howard, thank you for such amazing review. We are happy Catherine provided a great time and service, we thank you again for booking with us! 🇵🇷❤️
Super cool Tour
Antonio_r, Apr 2022
Catherine and This tour was excellent!!! The tour guide was very nice, courteous and knowledgeable. She definitely kept us safe and she was prompt and on time. You have to book with her !! Only thing was the rain did not allow me and my friends to do the waterfalls. This was our first private tour and we will always book these tours in the future.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Antonio, thank you for such amazing review. We are happy Catherine provided a great time and service, we thank you again for booking with us! 🇵🇷❤️

Ana_N, Apr 2022
The tour guide was a sweetheart. That’s about the only good thing I can say. Went down-hill from there. The experience was low-brow. We got picked-up 30 minutes late in an older car. It rained heavily part of the trip and there isn’t much alternative but to stay in car and pray it passes. The lunch-stop was a little gross. The beach stop was a small packed beach with music blaring. We did not stay. Just not what I was hoping for.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hi Ana, we apologize your time during the tour was not what you were hoping for. Unfortunately we do not have control over the unexpected weather and music that people are listening to at the beach location. We are glad our guide could offer you good service and we hope you were able to enjoy our other stop locations like the beautiful scenery in Cueva del Indio as well.
Tara_D, Mar 2022
What a wonderful experience! Catherine was the greatest, and I cannot say enough good about her. This is sightseeing with a local, and it's the perfect way to get a look at PR in a way that most tourists don't. The cliffs at Arecibo were incredibly beautiful and I am so glad that we got to see them. Hiking through rivers that we got to by traveling up a winding one lane mountain road through a village to get to the waterfalls was so cool, especially since no one really knows they are there and it was pretty much just us there to enjoy them. And the cove beach was wonderful (bring a boogie board if you have one, and eat the food truck empanadillas while you're there). Great, great day, fun and relaxing while still thrilling. I loved it. Can't wait to go back and try another tour with Catherine!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hello Tara, We’re so happy that Catherine provided you with amazing service and was able to show you our RealPR! Thank you so much again for booking with us. ❤️🇵🇷

Awesome nature excursion
Wendy_N, Dec 2021
Gozlandia and Cueva del Indio were spectacular sights to behold! Our tour guides, Stephanie and Jose, were super knowledgeable and loads of fun! We felt like we were hanging out with our friends that were locals, rather than tour guides. Highly recommended!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi Wendy, We’re so happy that Stephanie & Jose provided you with amazing service we truly appreciate you leaving them a review and thank you so much again for booking with us. ❤️🇵🇷
