Brilliant saw the best of Acapulco
Tracey_A, May 2023
Great tour we came off the cruise ship and was met by our guide . Everything on this tour was perfect and we got to see a lot on it and everything was well explained by the guide . The turtles was an amazing experience and the cliff divers breathtaking our group decided to pay extra to go to hotel were the view was superb . Nothing to dislike on this tour if your coming of a cruise do it don’t waste your money on ships yours which see less and cost more . They will make sure you are back on time
Acapulco Tour
Patricia_G, Apr 2023
Our guide was very knowledgeable and prompt. We saw many of the city highlights. It’s a great alternative to the tours offered on the ship.
6 hour tour of city, turtle nesting and high divers

Alfonso was an excellent tour guide. The entire tour was great and the highlights were the baby turtles, high divers and the street market.
Great tour with a lot of special moments
Emily_Y, Mar 2023
Mario was an excellent guide. He was a safe driver and always took time to understand what we wanted to know the most from our tour. He was very knowledgeable and showed us many aspects of Acapulco culture that I didn't learn in a past Acapulco tour that I took a few years ago. Thank you, Mario!

jeanette_w, Feb 2023
We enjoyed our guide and helping send turtles out to the water. We enjoyed seeing all aspects of the city. Also our guide had lots of good history to share with us about Mexico. We loved changing seats so nobody was stuck in back the whole time. Great guide!!
Awesome turtles and cliff divers!
Patrick_M, Jan 2023
Benny and Jesus were great tour guides. The Turtle release was worth the price alone! The cliff divers were remarkable. This is a very good tour for your limited time in port via cruise ship. I recommend it to everyone.
Fun day
leeann_s, Jan 2023
Our guide Poncho… was great .. He was very acomidating to individual needs and was very careful to keep us on schedule. I learned so much and enjoyed all of the songs guts we saw!
Excellent 5-Star tour. Amazing how much they packed into this 6 hour tour.
Terrie_U, Dec 2022
Excellent!!! Rudy, Alfonso and Balfre - gave us an A+ experience in Acapulco! It was magnificent. We appreciated that they showed us all aspects/areas of the city. (i.e. poor, rich) Their English was very good and they explained EVERYTHING in so much detail. Super informative and educational. (Awesome and enriching to be exposed/engaged with the locals.) Oh... and they were punctual, something you do not always experience with tours. Divers! Turtles! Local Market. Typical local food. Edible "gordita" in the market. Views from the Chapel of Peace. Oh my goodness, releasing those baby turtles was a heartwarming experience. <3 Again, this is a 5-Star tour, especially if you have a desire to hear, learn and experience, the lives of the local people and country. Muchisimas gracias Rudy, Alfonso y Balfre!!!
Missed the Cliff divers.
Mickey_S, Dec 2022
The tour was very unorganized. the guide was more interested in talking about his childhood there than information on the city. Worst of all we arrived too late to see the cliff divers dive.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
I apologize for the tour guide personal approach to a tour that should have been professional. We thank you for sharing you candid comments about our services. We have 0 tolerance to such behavior . We have hundreds of excellent reviews after the years and this is not what we do in the guides team in TourByVan. We have already taken the necessary actions for this not to happen again, the guide has been separated. Please let us know if a full refund would partially makes up to you with our deepest apologies.
Acupulco Adventure
Fred_M, Oct 2022
Seeing all the sights of Acupulco in one day by private car was the best way to go. From the cliff divers to the Peace Chapel, the turtle release and the scenic views that you can't get to by tour bus. Our tour guides, Rudy and Balfre, we're very friendly and knowledgeable, and knew all about the history of Alcupulco and the best places to visit. This tour was a great value!
Great tour!
Jenny_W, Nov 2020
Wow. Rudy and Mario were awesome. This a must do tour! We learned a ton about Acapulco and got to drive through local neighborhoods, see some amazing views and take in the sites. The turtle release and cliff divers were amazing. Acapulco has done a great job with COVID related safety. Temp checks, hand sanitizer, etc. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour is a must do and Covid safe!
Janet_J, Aug 2020
The 6 hour tour offers an exceptional perspective of Acapulco! The tour guides are very friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and share their personal experiences and opinions, which makes this tour one of a kind. The local sea turtle organization is well-operated and clearly dedicated to its mission (not exploitation of the animals). We loved every minute of this tour, from the dive show to the local beach lunch, and it was perfectly modified for Covid safety. The guides wore masks the entire trip, sanitized at every stop, and avoided crowded areas to ensure our safety. Highly recommend!
Great Bay Views and Turtle Experiance
DAVID_D, Feb 2020
Well looked after on this tour. The Turtle realeasing was amazing. The views of the bay will live with with us forever. Would love to go back and spend more time there. We felt very safe in our small group.
Ivan_K, Feb 2020
Little disappointed. Tour advertised as private and it wasn't. Package was to include a table and drinks at the divers. Didn't happen as it was not in the other couple's package. Stood on stairs in the sun to watch the show. When the error was pointed out drinks where supplied at the restaurant to compensate for error. All information provided about Acapulco plus the driver's relatives, prior jobs. TMI Still giving the tour 4 stars as we did enjoy it but recommend packages are checked prior to picking up guests to ensure you are giving the proper tour.
Great tour
dlhinchey2, Jan 2020
Extensive tour covering the entire city. Lunch is not provided but you can order food at the dive sight immediately upon getting there. The turtle release is fun and a great experience.
The perfect tour
Passport11819429995, Nov 2019
The perfect tour indeed. The guides are very knowledgeable of the history and traditions of Acapulco. The guides are very knowledgeable of the local history and traditions of the area. You will see multiple sites which are beyond beautiful. The mountains and cliffs droping into the sea below, to the boats throughout the bay.. The majestic Cross over looking the town with a catholic church complete with bolders inside is an architectural wonder that will leave you breathless.We had many flight and rental car issues that delayed our reservations but these men worked with us every way possible to make sure that we did not lose this great tour. Not only do you see all the good sites but you will see area of the city that only the locals know. You will eat at a beach front restaurant with some of the best food you can ever imagine, don't be afraid to order more than 1 item because the price is very reasonable. The cliff divers are just amazing and will leave you awe struck.My wife and I suffer from various health issues which makes most tours of this caliber impossible for us to do. Our guides noticed we were struggling and immediately adapted to our needs catering to our situation ensureing that we never missed a thing. We have made 2 new friends both honest and respectable both of high charafter and great morals. This is an experiance that we will never forget. Once again I would like to thank our guides for the wonderful job in which they done.
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Dear Señor Passpo, We appreciate in full you kind review about our services an opinion such as the one of yourselves will only make us strive even harder in providing the best service we can. Serving you and showing a beautiful Cith of Acapulco was a treat as well and we are looking forward serving you again in a near future. Always welcome to Acapulco! RUDY
Great tour and guide
Jack J, Oct 2019
It was a rainy day but our guide Alfonso left nothing out. We saw the whole range of things in Acapulco. From the downtown open air market, the wall mural, scenic overlooks, expensive home neighborhoods and the famous Cliff Divers. Alfonso explained each location in detail while driving us in an air conditioned van and even showed us where he lived. He got us to the divers Cliff divers just before they started diving again, parking very close and explaining our viewing options. The best views are free but require stairs. They sell $2 pictures and $5 autographed T-shirts up and down the stairs. He gave us the option of going back to ship or going to the silver shop. Half of the people got off at the ship and the rest of us went to the jewelry store. We found my wife a new ring and bracelet for her birthday and they sized the ring for her in about 15 minutes. We booked the tour seamlessly through...

Glenn_H, Mar 2018
Tour operator and guide was very focused on the current political situation in Mexico and spent at least 25 of the tour's narrative sharing his opinions on Mexico's political parties. Very disappointing! While the divers were fun to watch, they were more interested in selling their wares that making connections with tour participants. The best part of the tour by far was the turtle release! Participating in this simple yet significant event was worth it. However, this could have been done without all the time driving through back streets of Acapulco. The guide kept saying there was no need to take photos, as he was taking photos and videos of all activities and promised to send all participants a download link for free. Needless to say, I believed him...a total lie! While he quietly collected everyone's emails for his personal use...nothing was ever sent...hence we have no photos. Finally, the last stop was at a beach restaurant...approximately a mile for the cruise ship. No one on the tour was given an option of not attending the restaurant and returning directly to the ship. Since this tour catered specifically to the cruise ship and all participants having dinning for free on was just another way of creating an opportunity to force the collection of money for local businesses. The food was inexpensive and fine as most local restaurants go. Aside from the turtle release, this is not a tour I would recommend. My wife and I have visited many places in Mexico over the years, and this one just confirmed sadly how Mexico's struggles continue.

pepepipa54, Nov 2017
ACAPULCO 6 HOUR TOUR. This Tour was great, Jose and Beto our guides were awesome and made the experience very informative and lots of fun! My favorite part of the tour was the baby turtle release and the walking tour to the market, it was Astonishing, to say the least, particularly the witch Doctor visit. Loved the divers and the history, we never felt rush so we could experience more. Beto and Jose were very patient with all our photo taking and brought us to an amazing restaurant for lunch. I highly recommend taking any of his tours, they are great guides and will make your visit that much better which I didn't think was possible, it is amazing here. Thank you Jose and Beto !!
