    Henry was an amazing tour guide! He was born and raised in Cozumel so he knows the island very well. He made sure to give us the full experience of the island. We would definitely recommend this tour to everyone

    Amazing experience! Tour guide was great, and we got to pick what we saw on the island. Be sure that you receive directions beforehand to meet your guide. They had said they sent them to me, but I couldn’t find them. Either way, they helped me find the meeting place the day of. Lunch was good tourist food, but not the most authentic Mexican food I’ve had. The tequila tour on the other hand was the best I’ve ever had! Highly recommend just for that! It was a very personalized experience.

    A Great Day with a Jeep

    We had a great time on our jeep tour with Katy. We got off the cruise ship. We weren't certain where to go. Some kind local workers helped us find our guide Katy near the local 7-eleven where she was waiting for us. It would have been nice to have figured this out before we left on the cruise and lost service (partly our fault). Katy essentially handed us the keys to the jeep and asked what we wanted to do. Katy was fun to talk to. She sat in the back while we sat up front. It was a really great way to experience the island. Katy taught us many things about the island and the area and life on Cozumel. We decided on a local chocolate making tour. We learned a lot of Mayan history and had a fresh homemade chocolate mole sauce and corn tortilla, and fresh chocolate made by our tour guide. Overall, I think there are better chocolate tours in other areas...but we had a good time. We spent time on the opposite side of the island at the beach, drove through some community 4x4 roads, saw lots of iguanas, stopped by a small church and learned about local religious history, and went snorkeling at the Tortugas Bar. Tortugas gives you snorkeling equipment and lunch. Lunch was OK, the snorkeling was great. Lots of fish to see. Water very clear. Before we knew it, we had to go back to the boat!

    Our guide was amazing, but unfortunately just the experience was not so great. The venue for lunch was over crowded and food was dry. We never even went snorkeling nor to the beach.

    Very nice day! Our guide Youssef was very helpful and we got to see beautiful sceneries of the island. The jeep was a bit loud (we could hardly hear each other’s during when driving) but the whole experience is worth it! The kids loves it!

    Nacho is the BEST!

    Ignacio, aka Nacho, was the true reason this tour was spectacular. When I asked my son what his favorite part about the tour was, he replied, "Nacho." Very professional, polite and a wealth of knowledge for the area. I traveled with 2 young teenagers I could not have felt more safe with Nacho. Thank you so much for a great tour!!

    Weird, confusing, not enjoyable

    We didn’t realize when booking our tour that the time we selected for pick up wasn’t our local time in Florida so we had to wait an extra hour for our tour to start. I took that as partially my mistake for not realizing the time zone difference and waited patiently. Also it was never made clear where our meeting point was. We had to ask around and thankfully some other tour guide told us where to meet. After not having access to my email while on my cruise I returned home and saw an email explaining the meeting point the day before my booked excursion. Which would have been helpful to receive before I left on my cruise and not had access to internet. Our tour was to start at 1pm and our tour guide was almost 20 minutes late to pick us up. When he arrived he didn’t ask our names, check out tickets or anything. He got out and assumed we were his guests, pointed to my boyfriend and said “you are driving my friend”. Well during our hour and 20 min. wait we had been drinking at a local bar seeing how we were on vacation and knew we didn’t have to drive since I booked a private jeep tour with a guide. When he told our tour guide he’d been drinking and didn’t think he should drive our tour guide said “oh it’s ok it’s Mexico”. We were taken instantly to lunch and told we could snorkel there. It was extremely over crowded and we didn’t want to snorkel first thing and be wet the rest of the tour so we passed on the snorkeling and asked to head to other stops instead. Lunch took a pretty decent amount of time considering it was a completely packed restaurant and we just wanted to explore the island not be stuck in one spot and I’m my mind I had already lost 1 hour and 20 mins of my tour with the time change and him being late. After lunch and a few more beers my boyfriend told the tour guide he himself needed to drive us because he wasn’t comfortable driving after drinking. The rest of the tour was decent we only had time for 2 other stops after lunch and headed back to the boat. I’m disappointed after reading some of the other reviews and hearing how great it was for them. Maybe it depends on your guide. But to me the price I paid wasn’t worth it. Next time I’ll book with our cruise line itself.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our jeep tour with Miguel. He is friendly, engaging, and a Cozumel native, so he knows all the good spots. Especially memorable was a stop at the Miami bar. Best margarita we've ever had, and we've had many, and fantastic views right on the beach. You get to decide what you'd like to do and go or stay on your schedule. We look forward to going out with Miguel again. And be sure to meet his charming family if they are working at the shop.

    Jerry was our guide and he was excellent! He took us by the popular spots and beaches and explained a lot about the history and the culture. We booked this at the last minute and it was the best decision we could’ve made. The lunch was delicious and the margaritas were spot on! Enjoy your shots at the Tequila Factory! Will definitely recommend

    First time user of Viator. Julio was our guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. As first time visitors to Mexico, he made us feel at ease and was looking our for our best interests. The jeep we had was clean and in good working order. Our tour group followed Julio around the island stopping as we wished, including several stops along the beach, Tequila farm, chocolate factory, and Tourtugas for lunch. All of the locals we encountered were very friendly and not aggressive like other spots in the Caribbean (IE Bahamas). The trip was a great experience and Julio is an excellent guide! I highly recommend this excursion, but be knowledgeable as to where you are to meet your guide. The tour company will give directions, but I found it best to look at Google Maps beforehand to understand where to go.

    The charter was fantastic from the getgo. Especially our guide Katty was the best person to have around you - her knowledge and spirit and energy went right through all of us. The best Mojito in the universe, tequila making and snorkeling on its best. And we could even stop at a store to get a specialty - Katty took care of all. And the lunch was amazing as well. Thank you for the great experience.

    It was nice to let someone else do the driving, and chauffeur us about, after doing our own driving for three days. The beaches on the east side of the island, where there are few tourists, were pretty. My wife enjoyed swimming at the beach club after lunch. We both enjoyed sampling tequila during our visit to a tequila bar, which kicked off the tour. Unfortunately, we were disappointed that we did not learn more about the culture and history of Cozumel. This would have made the tour much more interesting. The "What to Expect" section of the tour description led us to believe there was a set itinerary, one hour here, two hours there, etc., but this was not the case. In reality, there was little structure. There was also a boundary issue: our guide sat at our table when we went to the beach club for lunch, rather than allowing us to dine alone. It felt weird.

    The Jeep Tour was amazing, I can't believe how much fun we had. We stopped at the tequila factory, visited the beaches on the easy side of the island snd had a great lunch at Tortugas. I can't say enough enough about our Tour Guide Juilio. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He offered us to drive the jeep if we wanted to and explained so many things about the island. He really made this Tour perfect. I can't rant to go back and Tour the island again.

    10/10 Experience! Our First Time in Cozumel!

    , Feb. 2022
    I was recommended to do this by a friend and I’m so happy that my girlfriend and I did this. Miguel was our tour guide and he did an amazing job showing us the best scenes in Cozumel and making it entertaining for us. I don’t think we would’ve been able to a quarter of the things on our own. If you want to make the most of your trip to Cozumel, this keep excursion is a must! The snorkeling experience was incredible as well. Water was so clear/blue and we got to swim with so many fishes. Miguel never rushed us; we got to swim as much as we wanted to and we were able to take as much time eating/drinking.
