As you can tell from other reviews, John really knows his stuff! It made for a educational, physical, and fun day:) I think we ended up going around 5mi, but a short option is available as well. We ended up finishing our morning at a bakery that he recommended and dropped us off at because I got a little "hangry"... More

LIke the other reviews John picked up myself and my two kids - we stopped for breakfast and then hiked and talked our way through a 3 + hour walk in the rain forest. He also stopped for a late lunch on the way home. It was great for me not to drive, and we all learnt \SO much about... More

My group of 4 adults and 3 children met John for a day in El Yunque. We had a great time doing a moderate difficulty hike for about 5 hours. John shared his fascinating stories about his life and his experiences in ecotourism and investment in the rainforest, including some great history and science stories. We also did a little... More

My wife and I spent the better part of a day with John Druitt, the owner of Rubio's Tours. We had a private tour, and he picked us up from our hotel in Old San Juan, drove us to El Yunque, and led us along a less-traveled path up into the cloud forest. It was perfect for our skill level... More

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.

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
