We had a fantastic day, off our ship for the day. We had read reviews stating Leo did a fantastic job, we were very excited when Leo (our tour guide) showed up in the yellow cap, as in instructions, with no problem finding him! We had a party of 5, including one senior with us, and the day was perfectly paced. Our private tour started with sightseeing in San Miguel, Leo gave us a lot of Mayan and local history along with information about the local people, he showed us the "sights" as well as the neighborhoods. We were able to stop several times to take pictures. We then visited the San Gervasio Mayan ruins, based on Leo's recommendation we purchase a tour guide for the ruins, this was well worth the extra money. After the ruins we went to the KaoKao Chocolate factory, to learn how chocolate is made along with tasting. We then decided to skip the Tequila Museum and headed to the beach. We had a fantastic lunch at a outside restaurant on the beach, with some time to enjoy the beach. Leo was very knowledgeable and really made our day perfect, he knew we would be running over our 5 hours a bit, and was not concerned. He dropped us off across the street from the pier so we could end our day with some shopping. We really enjoyed our day on Cozumel, and we would totally recommend Tours Plaza and Leo to any one !

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.
