Such an incredible tour. Our tour guide was more then what we could have asked for. We got to experience exactly what would have been missed on a regular trip and we were able to make and save many memories. There weren't lines to anything we visited and because its a private tour we got the opportunity to take our time and experience extra adventures when we wanted. The combination of excellent food, rich education on the history and culture, beautiful sites and the cherry on top of the best and most friendly guide we have had made this a absolute win! 10/10

Everything! Javier was the most intelligent guide we’ve ever had. Knowledgeable, charming, considerate.

First lets start with Javier, Man does this guy know his stuff. As we traveled through most of central Puerto Rico during the day we made various stops. The vehicle was clean and very enjoyable. Conversation and knowledge was first rate. Being able to see local beauty in a private setting was breathtaking. I highly recommend making it a point to spend your day with Javier. If you want to see hidden waterfalls, Avoid crowds, Lean about culture and history do this experience. John
Great tour!
