Tour Guide was on time and very knowledgeable about the area, be prepared, it is a full day experience but truly worth it … the restaurant at the end of trip offers fresh seafood and the beach experience was the best. Highly recommend this company to anyone looking for activities in the area. Once again truly worth it

West side hiking

My tour guide and driver Roberto was funny knowledgeable and great driver! What a fun excursion to a part of the island I didn’t know existed!
Response from Host, Apr 2023

His humor, knowledge, and driving skills are truly a testament to the passion he has for showcasing the hidden gems of our beautiful island.
Best experience of our whole trip!
Karla_P, Apr 2023
Amazing experience! Roberto was our guide and he went above and beyond to make sure we had a great Time. It was my 17 year old son’s favorite thing that we did on the trip and mine as well. We were gone the entire day and saw parts of Puerto Rico that we would have never known about if it wasn’t for us going on this tour. If you visit Puerto Rico- this tour is a must!!
Response from Host, Apr 2023

Amazing west side experience
carmen_b, Apr 2023
Roberto we cannot thank you enough for this amazing tour! This is truly an all day tour so be prepared. We enjoyed every moment. Roberto is very knowledgeable about everything Puerto Rico. We truly enjoyed his company.
A must to tour
Estoria_T, Mar 2023
Great adventure with Roberto. This is an all day tour so be prepared to be warned out at the end. This tour takes you to the west side of the island where you wouldn't normal visit on your own. visiting the place where sea salt is constructed was very interesting. we even got a chance to bath our hands in the salted water. Another highlight was eating at the restaurant with the locals. This tour is well worth your time and money.
West side story of PR
TAL_J, Mar 2023
I have recently made two important decisions. One is good and the other is amazingly excellent. The 1st good one was to vist PuertoRico. The 2nd but excellent decision was not to get stuck in San Juan, but to win an in-depth, professionaland heartfelt fascinating tour to West side story :) of the island. I would love to tell but I wouldn't want to make spoiler. Be surprised and find out for yourself. The trip gives a lot of knowledge with the help of a friendly and intelligent local guide
Do not accept a Van transfer when you are forced to sit in the back row
Perry_B, Feb 2023
Sadly we did not complete the trip. We were the last for a couples to be picked up in a van. One had to climb over the rear wheel to be contorted into the last row, which did not have enough legroom for one to sit with their knees straight ahead, there was air conditioning, but it worked intermittently so we were contorted, compressed and warm. And reviewing the tact information of the tour, it was not a clear that we would be spending a total of six hours in these very difficult circumstances. There is no way we could have completed the trip so that after the first stop an hour and a half out of the San Juan. We informed the driver we were unable to complete the trip, he contacted his manager and they took us to a nearby Hilton hotel in Ponce where we hired our own driver to go back to San Juan. Because we had journeyed 1/4 of the way I requested a 75% return of our deposit and in two separate emails we were informed that we were not going to receive anything because we elected to leave the tour .
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for your review Perry. We are sorry to hear that your experience was not what you expected. We could not accommodate a refund as you decided of your own volition to not continue with the tour and our cancelation policy is 24hrs in advance for the refund. In regards to the concerns you have noted for us in your review. I feel I must address them here, publicly as you did voice them in a public forum. If you would have wanted to continue, the passengers seat next to the driver is always available for people who not feel comfortable in the back, you just need to ask, and we are more than sure that if you had wanted to, we could have talked to the group and moved you. The van fits 14 people, we understand it is not too comfortable for the full 14, therefor we only service a maximum of 12, and still the tour that day had only 8. The a/c was replaced with a new one around 3 months ago, and it is in great working order, but surely it takes a bit of time to get to the back, nonetheless it reaches the back after 10minutes, we have tested it ourselves with a full van, also, if it would have consistently happened throughout the whole trip, which it did not, we would've provided a refund for the experience. I also would like to apologize that it is not clear that the first stop, Faro Los Morrillos, which is clearly posted in Viator, mentions that it is 2 hours and 30 minutes away, at which point you get out of the van, and then the next time you get in the van you stay in it for 5 minutes to get back down at the salt pools, and 20minutes to make it to the Boqueron, and finally the last time to get back to San Juan, which would be another 2 hours and 30 minutes, for a total of 5 hours and 30 minutes, with enough time to stretch your legs, as we do make strategic stops to let people stretch their legs for comfortability. We know this is a long ride, and we do not hide it. Not only do we review your reason for the refund, and for the situation, we also have to review our tour guides feedback. And getting both sides of the story, we understood that you omitted to let us know you had conditions, which we state clearly that we do not recommend it for people with conditions. You opted directly to not continue the tour, instead of asking for a solution, which when I tried to have our tour guide provide to you, he was even scared of asking to have you go back in the van to take you to a safe place for you to go back to San Juan because you were so adamant about not getting back in the perfectly working van. Then you proceed to review us without even having the courtesy to completely detail the full interaction in order to mislead others as you are mad that you did not get your money back for a tour you did not research well, did not inform of your condition to the operators, and did not allow the operators to solve the situation for you, which you could have avoided by simply asking to be sat in front.
Sea wave hits the rock.
Eileen_G, Feb 2023
It’s a trip totally worth the money. I love the route and town that are not too commercially developed and so I can see it’s original culture. My tour guide has encouraging me along the way to climb to the cave to the the most beautiful view. It makes the difficult walk totally worth it.
For an authentic Puerto Rican Experience catered to you
Ryan_J, Dec 2022
It was an absolutely fun, adventurous, and completely memorable day spent with Roberto. He was incredibly gracious, knowledgeable, and he absolutely catered to the needs of each individual in the group. I particularly enjoyed the stop in the city of Cabo Rojo and the surprise treat we had. This is a tour worthy of your time and attention to have a more authentic experience in Puerto Rico. Roberto and his company will take care of you and ensure you have an amazing day.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for the wonderful review! Roberto enjoyed the company and told us great stories of the day with y'all. It is a great pleasure to provide you with authentic and great experiences.
Awesome experience
Theppadol_P, May 2022
The trip was very memorable from all the sights, the experience, and the information. Roberto was super nice, caring and knowledgeable. Would definitely do it again and recommend to others!
Wonderful in every way!
Jules_L, May 2022
This was a wonderful experience I will treasure for years to come. Roberto was our tour guide. I could not have asked for a coffee mind, considerate, and patient per see on to lead this experience. He is truly passionate about Puerto Rico and had a ton of knowledge. The west town and f Cabo Rojo is stunning and naturally enchanting. This tour was worth every penny and I'm grateful I got to expressive this. There is so much natural beauty to see outside the city.
Must see
Joel_S, May 2022
Our tour guide, Roberto, customized the experience for us since there were only 3 people on this tour. We enjoyed his knowledge, his stories, and the rock formations, beaches, and had dinner at a marina and watched the sun set off the west coast.
Even picky teenagers loved this trip!
Rebecca_T, Apr 2022
I went on this tour with my three teen boys yesterday. Our guide, Roberto, was amazing. I loved hearing his stories and he worked with us to ensure that everyone had the best time possible. He was kind and interesting. The sights were wonderful and the food and atmosphere at the restaurant was top notch! I wouldn’t change a thing about our day. We all loved it. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Fun tour with breathtaking views
Junette_D, Mar 2022
If you love a little bit of hiking and exploring to be rewarded by the most beautiful and breathtaking views, then this tour is for you. It was enjoyed my my entire family and our tour guide Roberto made it fun and interesting!!
nice little tour
Winston_C, Mar 2022
guide was very flexible since we were the only ones, truly a “hidden gem” far, far away from the city
Excellent tour!
Denise_M, Mar 2022
This was a most wonderful experience with Richardo. To be able to get outside of major touristy areas and seeing more of the island. From doing a little hike and having the ground open up and watching the waves crash below. To seeing the abandoned salt flats. Stopping at a road side family owned stand for what we would call icee's with fresh fruit puree, amazing. Going through the little fishing town and eating dinner locally on the water, best grouper I have ever had!! This was a fantastic day adventure with memories that will last forever with Richardo as our great guide.
Best day Ever
LaToya_H, Dec 2021
Everything about the tour was amazing and it was my birthday. Bobby-owner made sure the tour was memorable. It was definitely worth the money!!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you for the great review! We love to celebrate with our travelers and make their special days even more wonderful!
Nice trip!
Rita_M, Nov 2021
The cliff walk was beautiful! Bobby was full of information. Good lunch! It was hot so would have loved to have gone swimming some place. Several nice places on the tour. Unable to download photos. Tried three times.
Highly recommend this full day adventure
Andrewnet_C, Oct 2021
I had such an amazing time on this tour. I think it's a must-do if you want to explore outside of the San Juan area and get in a full-day adventure. The guide was prompt and communicated pick-up and drop-off times clearly. He also explained the history of the west side while we did sightseeing. It was just another couple and me so the guide tailored the tour to match what the small group wanted to do. Next time I go to PR I know I'll def want to spend more time on the west side.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for the beautiful review! We are more than glad you had a wonderful time.
Great tour exploring PR’s west side
Daryl, Aug 2021
This was a great tour! Had to change the date due to inclement weather, but it was easy to switch. It ended up being a private, solo tour because some people cancelled. Had a great time exploring a lesser visited part of Puerto Rico. Roberto, my driver and guide, was super friendly. He took me to a couple off the path spots since it was just me. Would highly recommend! Great, fulfilling day. Saw a lot of interesting places.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for such a great review! We are very glad that even though weather did not allow us to go the day you wanted, you allowed us to provide you the experience on another day. It is our mission to provide you and our clients with the best experience.
