Very fantastic tour ! Tour guide was very nice and take care of us. Very appreciated. For the breakfast I would prefer upgrade a little more treats ^_^ Score: Recommend: YES from Canada
I absolutely loved every single thing about this tour. I honestly wasn't expecting the Rio Lagartos, beach, and hacienda (place we stopped for breakfast) to be so beautiful. I was just going for Las Coloradas but those extra places were great additions to the tour! My only concern was that not everything was translated to English. I'm fluent in Spanish but my husband isn't so I had to do extra translations for him. I also noticed other non-Spanish speaking tourists confused as to what/how we were doing something. Not always, but sometimes. Thank you for the amazing trip though! I would recommend it for sure! Score: Recommend: YES from Yuma, AZ
We definitely had an awesome time! Score: Recommend: YES from san francisco
