We booked a private tour...
, Apr 2022
We booked a private tour for two. Fernando did a great job attending to our needs. We had a private air conditioned mini van and a wonderful driver Jose' who drove us anywhere we wanted to go. We stopped on the road and were treated with a large bag of cut honey pineapples. They were so sweet juicy and delicious, (never knew these pineapples existed),you need to try one.. Just wish we had them in our grocery store. We had an authentic Mayan lunch at the Chunky Monkey bar and restaurant only 100 feet from the beach. (All Included). We went to the ruins and were met by "Genesis," our designated tour guide. He was awesome. Told us all about the history of the Mayan ruins using drawings and photos as visual aids.. it really helped us understand the history.. His knowledge of all the different types of trees growing around the trail to the ruins was amazing. We learned so much. (I have taken this tour before with a different operator a few years back and didn't get half the information we learned from Genesis). Fernando, who manages the tours for the company, promised that we would get to do all we wanted. We wanted to go to a shopping area near the beach we heard about and Jose our driver not only drove us there he stood outside and waited for us so we could spot him and direct us back to the car. I only book private tours..or tours not offered by the cruise line. Nothing wrong with the cruise line tours, but they are mostly group tours and you are usually cramped in a van. We learn so much more on a private tour.. Our private tour was 30 dollars per person less than the cruise ship offered for the same group trip ... but we had a private vehicle and were able to add a shopping experience. This tour group works hard to please its customers. They are so ATTENTIVE..and so INFORMATIVE. We had a wonderful experience. Special thanks to Fernando,Genessis, and Jose' You are the best! Highly recommend any tour they offer.
