Excellent service and guide!
     5/5  January 2020
Freddy was fantastic, and was the key to a great experience in Cozumel. He was there waiting for us when we arrived at the taxi station with a sign with our name on it, and it just got better from there. We gave him our rough plan for the day, including stops and activities, and he made suggestions along the way that were perfect. He was flexible and accommodating, and was always ready when we finished with an activity to take us to our next stop. We went to San Gervasio, explored a bit of the beaches on the east side of the island, and then followed his recommendation to a great restaurant away from all the main tourist attractions, which was excellent. A quick stop at a less crowded souvenir shop and good company all along the way. Can\'t wait to get back and spend some time with Freddy again--we\'d go back just for him it was that good.

Our tour guide, Freddie, was awesome! He was never in a rush and made sure we were comfortable and having a good time. We had a wheelchair and Freddie insisted on loading and unloading himself at each stop! We were taken all over the island and stopped for pictures whenever we wanted. He took us for local shopping in addition. We would definitely book again and hope Freddie was our guide!!

Our fabulous taxi tour with Freddie!
     5/5  January 2019
Freddie picked us up at the port on time in a clean, well air-conditioned van that was roomy and comfortable for the 7 of us. We had never been to Cozumel before and Freddie showed us the wonder and beauty of the island. We traveled all around, seeing beautiful beaches, shorelines, fancy resorts and even a crocodile! We went to a small marketplace, a chocolate factory and a tequila factory! We also had a wonderful lunch. Somehow we did it all in five hours without feeling rushed! We would do this tour again!

Our group of 6 had a wonderful time exploring the island with our wonderful private driver named Freddie. He is so friendly and knowledgeable. His English was really good and we loved having a guide that we were able to completely understand. We customize our stops and saw what we wanted, spend the time on each location as we desired. We wanted to skip the beach and went to the more historic, cultural spots. Simply the best company we ever used before and had what they promised we should have.

We had an exceptional experience with our driver/guide. We had him and an air conditioned van for just my wife and me. This was our first visit to Cozumel. He took us to some great sites to visit and to take pictures. He was born and raised in Cozumel and is very proud of the island that he\'s from. This is the best choice that we have made on our entire cruise and I would highly recommend this excursion!

My group of 14 thoroughly enjoyed our drive around Cozumel with Freddie. He was helpful, informative, friendly and flexible. He took us to all the places we requested and took us to different local spots one might now normally think about, like a stop to see what an old Mayan house looks like. I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again Freddie!

Awesome tour and guide!
     5/5  January 2018
Let me preface my review by saying that I am a veteran world traveler. With deep gratitude I am writing that our guide, Freddy, gave us the most enjoyable tour I have ever experienced. First our ship disembarked early and my wife and I were afraid we would have to wait for over an hour for the tour to begin. To our great delight, Freddy arrived about 45 minutes early, ready and eager holding up a sign with our name on it. Driving us around in his very roomy taxi, Freddy was very professional. He provided a very steady hand at the wheel, sharing interesting stories and information about the island. I am an enthusiastic shutterbug, and in addition to the recommended highlights of the island, Freddy was always accommodating to my requests to stop the taxi so that I can take my photos of Cozumel’s wildlife and the beautiful beaches and shoreline. Thank you, ready steady Freddy!

We were picked up by Freddie from the Carnival port on time. Our ride was very clean and comfortable. Freddie brought us to many sites on Cozumel and we all had a wonderful time doing just what we wanted to do for as long as we wanted. Very economical and secure way to tour the island. We would definitely do this again.

Our driver Jose was friendly and very accommodating. Picked us up in an air conditioned taxi from our meeting place where I realized I had lost my camera somewhere between the boardwalk and our taxi ride to meet Jose. He took us back to the last store we were in but wasn't there. We moved on and just considered it gone. While touring the ruins Jose got on the phone with his boss and they found my camera on the board walk and took us to the ladies house that found it to retrieve it. We couldn't believe it. Enjoyed it very much.

Our driver stopped anywhere we wanted to and was ready to go when we were. Perfect for our group of 4 since we stopped at unusual locations for just a few minutes. Appreciated the extra stop when our driver spotted a crocodile sunning just a bit off the road.

Jose, our guide was wonderful. Offered suggestions on where we might go but listened us on our interests as well. Some minor complaints would be that tour company did not keep track of our cruise ships arrival time and/or correct port location. Ship was scheduled to arrive at 10:00 but was running late and didn't dock till 11:00. No problem for us since we arrived at our preset meeting location at 11:20 for our scheduled 11:30 appointment. No one was there. Luckily we had our cell phone and were able to call them with the number given. Jose arrived and we were on our way when I notice his car clock showing the time was 1 hour ahead of ship time. Ship time was out of Galveston so CST. We assumed that Cozumel is almost surely in CST according to all the maps I've ever looked at. So if you book out of Texas beware. Price is reasonable if you can come up with four passengers which we were unable to do. Again hats off to Jose!

The best guide in Cozumel!
     5/5  April 2016
Our professional guide was Russell Bazea and to put it simply - this was the best tour yet! We met at the exact place and time as instructed. We have been to Cozumel at least 6 times in two years and this was by far the most enjoyable. Russell is a gentleman, proud of his heritage and loves to share his knowledge of the island. We love taking photos and he obliged us and we got some fantastic shots of the beaches on the east side. Had a delicious lunch and libation at Coconuts. What a beautiful day! Thanks Russell for making our vacation much sweeter.

Freddy is the BEST!

Freddy picked us up at the port and took us everywhere we wanted to go. There were 6 in my family and he brought a large van with lots of room for our gear. My husband and I have been to the island many times but we wanted to show our kids everywhere we love to go. Freddy felt like part of our family. He was extremely helpful and was great to talk to about his family and the history of the island. Next time we cruise to Cozumel, we will definitely call Freddy!

great idea for my group
     5/5  November 2013
My friends and I wanted to do an island tour but did not want to be crammed in with a bunch of other people on a ship sponsored excursion. So we searched online and saw this option. With 7 of us, the price was so much lower than the ship excursion and we got to plan our excursion the way we wanted! Our driver Freddie was very polite and spoke perfect English. His van was large, very clean and had good air conditioning. Freddie even picked us up right outside our ship terminal and dropped us off back there afterwards. A perfect day!
