We had a wonderful day exploring El Yunque under John's guidance. He's got a great sense of humor and is highly knowledgeable about the island and rainforest. Everyone in our party enjoyed our time with him - the adults as well as a teen and a pre-teen. We covered a lot of ground and he managed to steer us around... More

John was an awesome tour guide!!! He picked us up at the Wyndham and took our group of 4 to a great breakfast joint before our rainforest hike. He was very knowledgeable and set a great pace for our hike up 1000'. He also took us to a remote waterfalls and kept us away from heavy tourist stops in the... More

John picked us up at the cruisepier and started driving and telling us about his wonderful life and the life and all things at Puerto Rico. He's an amazing speaksman and knows a lot about life in general. We walked throught the rainy El Yunque before the park should be too crowded: there was almost no one on our route... More

We've been in a number of rain forests before, and the one thing we learned was this: If you're going to take the time to hike, do it with a local who is knowledgeable about the area. My husband researched guide for El Yunque prior to our travels to Puerto Rico, and John Druitt's name rose to the surface. He... More

This tour was truly the best part of the recent trip my husband and I took to Puerto Rico. I am usually a planner and plan tours far ahead of the time we visit, but dropped the ball this time. Luckily, we were able to get a tour for the morning of our last full day there. John picked us... More

I think my friends and I would have been able to sort our hiking in El Yunque on our own, but it would not have been as great of an experience. John is someone you will enjoy spending a few hours with and is extremely knowledgeable about the trees, plants, animals and history of the Park Service. He was able... More

We met Javier- "El Cabra Montes" at 10:00, and we hiked to three peaks. Feet and legs are tired, but what a day! Be prepared to go beyond the tourist spots. Remember to bring water and snacks, because if El Cabra Montes is your guide it will be a hike. Great operation.

We met John in Rio Grande and he drove us up to the trail. We hiked for almost 5 hours. John kept the whole trip amazing and fun. All four of us learned and laughed. highlighted by an amazing vista at Mount Britton. World class attraction, world class tour, world class guide. (Very reasonable fee). You should see this sight...

I booked a hike for my family in El Yunque. John did a great job of gathering info via email on skill levels and what it was we wanted out of the hike (my kids were hoping for a Waterfall swim and I wanted to learn about the rainforest). He was extremely knowledgeable, was able to keep my kids engaged... More

Thanks John for sharing your knowledge and a great place to hike! It was an experience we will never forget. John took us to a bakery where we had a delicious breakfast. Then We took a 3 hour hike. It was breathtaking.
