Your fun day will begin when you meet with your English-speaking guide at your Mazatlan cruise ship pier. After a quick check-in, you will be shown to the air-conditioned van. Although this is not a private excursion, your group will be kept to a maximum of just 14 passengers. You will head off for your first stop at the Spanish Fort, known as Fuerte Carranza. The fort was used in the 1860s to defend itself from French invaders. The view from the fort is the only place where you can see the three islands located off the coast at the same time, Deer, Goat, and Bird Islands. From the lookout hill, you will catch amazing views of the city and the Cerro del Crestón where the lighthouse "El Faro" has been lit since 1879, being the tallest one in America and the tallest one still functioning in all the World.

Next, you'll head down to the Parque Glorieta, a small oceanside park usually referred to as "El Clavadista", here you will watch the cliff divers plunging off cliffs 45 feet up into water that is just 8 feet deep. Be amazed as they create interesting dives while avoiding the many sharp rocks below. The divers usually perform daily at 10:00 AM and 04:00 PM.

Then you're off to visit the historic district of Mazatlan. This includes the great Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, a Gothic-style cathedral with luxurious deco details, from handmade tiles, crystal chandeliers, and gold leaf murals, to a Cavaille-Coll organ and much more. It is a true architectural jewel in the heart of Mazatlan City. You will stop to go inside and take photos while your knowledgeable guide explains a little about its construction.

You can also take some time to wander through the downtown market and the main plaza where you will see colorful cafes, food stands, and unique handmade crafts from the local artisans.

Finally, you'll be driven along the longest boardwalk (the Malecon) in Mexico which has many bronze statues along the water to your next stop at the Golden Zone, known for both shopping and beautiful beaches. You will have free time to purchase a delicious Mexican lunch, relax on the beach, or search for shopping bargains.

Then, once your time in the Golden Zone comes to an end you'll be driven back to your Mazatlan cruise ship pier.

Best Tour Experience Ever
     5/5  (Visited on December 2022)
Our family of 13 (3 generations) had the lovliest time on this tour. We showed up early and the tour company called our driver and was able to start us 30 minutes earlier than our planned departure time. Our driver/guide (Oscar) was so friendly and knowledgeable and accommodating. He took us to great locations for pictures, shopping, and lunch, and let us take as much time as we wanted at each location. The van was clean and air conditioned and there were complementary drinks. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Our tour guide, Julio, made this tour so amazing. We were a party of 4, and our entire group was 10 people. We visited the old & new parts of the city. We went to the Lighthouse & took on the spectacular views for about 20 minutes; Spent about 45 minutes at the Cathedral; had well over an hour for lunch at an amazing restaurant right on the beach. Afterwards we got about 45 minutes of shopping in the Golden Zone. Although this was not a private tour, Julio catered to our wants/desires on where we wanted to go & what we wanted to see, all the while making sure we stayed hydrated with bottled water, ice cold beers & the occasional shot of Tequila!

Golden Zone!!
     5/5  (Visited on August 2018)
Absolutely the best part of this tour was visiting the Golden Zone. We found a lot of stuff there and I bought several Mexican souvenirs for my family. The panoramic view of the Malecon was great. The city still has alot of old-world charm and we had a really good time. Highly recommended.

     5/5  (Visited on September 2017)
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We got to see parts of the Old city including a fabulous market downtown. The streets were clean with a lot of pride taken in maintaining and preserving old buildings. A good overview of the city! Our tour guide was amazing, funny and full of information. He was very attentive to our needs making sure we were comfortable, he even provided a cold water bottle.

Beautiful and Colorful Mazatlan
     5/5  (Visited on March 2019)
Our tour guide Jorge did a great job. He was open to stopping wherever we wanted to and we saw so many great places. We saw cliff divers, cathedral, fish market and golden zone. Small tour was my family of 6 people and two strangers that were sisters. So only 8 people on a roomy air conditioned van with a lot of room. Great value for what you get and includes water and sodas. We always book through this website and they never disappoint.
