Enjoy a broad and pleasant overview of Cozumel island on this private 5-hour shore excursion. After pickup from the cruise-ship or ferry pier at a time of your choosing, your personalized guide takes your group (up to nine people) by air-conditioned van to a variety of sights on Cozumel, which translates in Mayan as the ‘Island of Swallows.’
Hear the history behind the landmarks downtown on a city tour. Then, stop at a chocolate factory to learn about how the Maya people made and used chocolate. Follow your chocolate lesson with a tasty tequila tasting.
Next, you have the option of visiting either Mayaluum, a traditional clay and limestone craft factory, or the San Gervasio Maya ruins.

Our guide was amazing. He had the pre planned stuff ready for us to do or offered to change it up if we had something else in mind. He offered great suggestions and was very accommodating.

Sergio, our guide/driver was amazing. Very accommodating and knowledgeable. He suggested places that were worth to see in Cozumel and was able to share the history of the beautiful island with us. He was also very flexible and open to any suggestions we made about the tour and schedule. That was a fantastic tour an I definitely recommend it to anyone.

This tour was awesome. It was 8 of us Gerardo gery is an spectacular tour guide.we really enjoyed the stops, including the first one for snacks and drinks. The Chocolate and Tequila tour was a hit, he blasted the music in the van it was so much fun.We like the restaurant he took us for lunch.the only bad thing at the restaurant was that the only option was chicken for everything, no beef or anything else.
I would definitely recommend this tour.

Our driver Sergio was courteous, friendly and cared about what we wanted to do. I would highly recommend taking a private tour and truly seeing Cozumel.

After disembarking our cruise ship we were picked up by Leo our driver at the taxi stand as pre arranged. From the beginning he was polite and helpful. We had a wonderful day with tequila tasting, chocolate tasting and he took us to a great authentic beachside café for some Mexican food and margaritas. As the weather was dreadful raining hard all day we were unable to go to the ruins on Leo's recommendation he drove us around and showed us different places of interest and told us about life in Mexico. He was full of information and spoke great English. I would highly recommend this tour. The only negative was the weather which is out of anyone's control.

It truly was the reviews that sold this excursion for our family... you can trust these reviews, they were spot on! With a group of 8 4 older individuals that cant get around too fast, this was the perfect fit age range 14 -75! No large ship tour groups, they loved having the van to ourselves and to be able to go at their pace. So easy to find once we left the ship area!!! We loved the chocolate and tequila places, but lunch on the beach was the best! No hurry, loved to be able to relax! Food was great! Even stopped at a local grocery store for a special stop and a beach spot for the kids. Everyone loved Victor 1... he even managed to get an invite back to Kansas from my mother-in-law which is huge!. He was so kind, patient and very knowledgeable! He truly made the trip special.
