Tours in chiapas

Has anyone pre-paid a tour for Chiapas? I have been in contact with some agencies in Chiapas that can provide tours but the method of payment they seek is a little doubtful. They want me to go to their Mexican bank or wire money straight into their account as a method of payment? Has anyone had a similar situation? Any recommendations?? Usually payments are made online or something to that nature. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We had the same concerns especially as we'll be there the week before carnival. Tour books (and helpful people here) indicated that there are a number of tour providers around the town center. So, we've decided that we would book tours once we arrived in SCdlC. Here's hoping!

We also decided on a tour once we were there. When we were there, there was a lady on a square everyday to take people to the indian villages. You could just show up and she would arrange transport and guide. Not sure if she is still around.

I am there now. There are many tour companies on Real de Guadalupe. There are also pamphlets at the tourist office. In my 10 years of coming to Mexico, I have never sent money upfront for a tour.

The absolute best guide in San Cristobal is Alex Aranda. Cielo y Tierra tours. You can contact him via his website to schedule something and then pay him directly on the day of.
