A Great Day With Shawn, Rachel, & Maci - Louisiana
Shawn_B, Jun 2023
Simply stated - Javier provided the best private tour that my family and I have ever experienced! His knowlege of historical events, refreshing perspective on social issues, great attitude, and healthy sense of humor made every minute of our tour absolutely "worth it" in every sense of the phrase. He made us feel very comfortable throughout the day. It felt like we where spending the day with a distant relative. We couldn't have been more thankful and tried to show it every step of the way (e.g., lunch with and on us was a first - thanks again Javier for sharing the baked fish). Regardless of how trivial, Javier answered everyone of our questions thoroughly and patiently. Javier, you have found your calling my friend! My family and I wish you and your family peace, great health, and happiness.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you, Shawn. I really enjoyed the time I spend with you and your family. We had very deep conversations. You are all very smart, deep, curious and fun to be with. It was an honor to share my country (and myself) with you. See you soon, Javier.

Knowledgeable guide. You can customize your itinerary. The rainforest was amazing especially we got to experience it with a little rain.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you, Victoria. It was great spending the day with you and your family (3 generations). The rain forest was amazing. It’s quite an experience to get wet in the rain forest. Enjoy the rest of your trip, Javier
Trudy_E, Mar 2023
Javier has a wide knowledge base and was very informative. He was also very flexible! We changed the destination at the last minute and it was no problem. We had a lovely day and highly recommend him.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you, Trudy. It was great spending the day with you. Since this is a private tour, we were able to change plans completely to meet your needs. We were very lucky that we spent time with the archeologist in Tibes. I am also grateful that you came to see my Unicycling performance at the Circus Festival. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Puerto Rico. Javier
Perfect day.

Franklin_M, Jul 2022
We had a great time with Javier. Very adaptable with our Cruise line schedule, our interest and teenagers with us. Very knowledgeable and able to keep the conversation going in San Juan traffic.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi Franklin, Thank you very much for spending the day with me. On a short time we managed to do quite a lot, including visiting the forts, trying to hunt giant iguanas, etc. Hope to see you again soon. Javier
The best of Puerto Rico for sure 😊
Yadira_M, Nov 2021
Javier was amazing the tour was what we expected and more. He took us to the coolest places I've never seen as I was born on the island. He never rushed us and made sure we were hydrated and allowed us to embrace and enjoy every part of it. Thank you Javier
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Muchas gracias, Yadira. It was a big honor for me to walk with you as you reconnected with your home country. It was a beautiful day for everyone. Javier
Excellent Way to See Puerto Rico in One Day
Evan_K, Nov 2021
Javier was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a customizable, all-in-one Puerto Rico tour. Not only did we see everything advertised, we even asked for special side trips and he accommodated us easily.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you, Evan. It was great to spend time with your brother and you, along with your spouses. It was a beautiful day. Hikes, caves, bomba on the beach. Hope to see you again soon. Abrazos desde Puerto Rico, Javier
