“Not well run”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Seemed like it would be a fun tour.

We went to where we were told to meet but there was no one there in a jeep marked Pantera. We finally called and they said they would be there in a few minutes. After 10 minutes someone walked over and said that we were at the "new" welcome center, not the right one. We walked to the gas station where he had the jeep parked. The front window was broken and the rear view mirror was missing. We went a mile or so to meet the others at the beach where we would be snorkeling. This took a long time to get going. They did not seem to have enough gear. We finally got in the water. There is not much to see here - a few fish and some artificial reefs. We then got back in the jeeps (one group did not even have a jeep to get into) and went to the myan ruins. This was ok. We had to pay $20 each for this, which was listed one the website, but when we got to the site my son seemed to be young enough to not have to pay (they did not tell us this but kept the money anyway). After the ruins we drove to the tequila factory tour. We had done this before so we stayed at the restaurant and had a drink (the tour guides seemed a bit bothered that we did not go see the tequila tour part). The food was good. We were then told that we would have to go back early because the rest of the trip would take too long and not get us back to the ship on time. It seemed that the website said we would have plenty of time. So we did not see the lighthouse or the alligators.

Not well run. Broken down equipment. Slow. Choose someone else to do this tour with.

“Fantastic way to see the island!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

We took this tour on my 30 th birthday and it was one to remember for sure! We were paired up with a fun couple from the hotel next to ours. Enjoyed snorkelling for the first time, a great lunch, an informative trip through the San Gervasio ruins, a seriously spirited and fun tequila tour, swimming at THE most incredible beach and a very cool view at the end of the day from a lighthouse. Hands down, this was the neatest excursion we booked during our stay in Cozumel.

“Fun day adventure”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

This tour was a great day of fun. You start the day snorkeling in a gorgeous spot near the city of Cozumel, then, go to the Mayan ruin site, which is interesting. Next to the Tequila factory, where you get lots of samples and a really fun environment, a great lunch. Then it's on to the opposite side of the island where there is rugged beach with big surf, no hotels just surf and sun and some public beaches and restaurants. We stopped at the most gorgeous beach and got to swim and hang out for awhile and just enjoy the crystal blue water. Our last stop was the lighthouse at the end of the island. The stairs to the top are a hike, but the view is breathtaking with the shades of turquoise blue in the water. It was a great day of fun. Our tour guide, Israel, made the day extra fun and special. He was funny and very nice and took good care of us! It was great fun and a highlight of our trip to Cozumel!

“Great way to see the Island”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

You drive the whole island, great way to see everything. Did one reef, the ruins, a lighthouse, the Tequila Factory where you get to sample Tequila (which is great).
