We did the whale shark tour and the classic tour. Both were well organized and perfectly executed! Everybody involved speak very good English (and Spanish of course). Nothing to complain about, all good in every aspect!

Great tour company. Very safe and professional, easy to communicate with (English), and they clearly care about the environment and ecosystem. I highly recommend doing the whale shark tour and using VIP for all your tour needs while on Holbox.
