Great day in Acapulco
nancyneal1, Feb 2020
Our guide, Mario, was amazing. We had a full day of seeing all of Acapulco, with a trip thrown in to a silver store for me. He was full of knowledge, not only of Acapulco, but of Mexican and world history. We went from one end to the other, seeing the new, the old and the historic...even the cliff divers. Mario was an exceptional host to us, always taking care of the details. The market was fascinating to drive through. We both feel very privileged to have spent the day on this tour and recommend it anyone looking for a great day in Acapulco.
Awesome Tour of Acapulco
John_W, Jan 2020
This tour would be awesome for anyone that doesn't know much about Acapulco. We did this tour through "Tour by Van" (Rudy Fregoso), who was so great to work with. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were able to change our tour to a day later as Rudy wanted to be "part of the solution," we certainly appreciated that! Our tour guide was Santiago who was very knowledgeable about everywhere he took us. He was a fantastic guide that showed us all over the city, the Fort of Acapulco, the Cliff divers, along with a delicious lunch at a local restaurant where the food was awesome. This is a tour you don't want to miss out on! Tour by Van (Rudy Fregoso) and guide Santiago are the best.

This particular tour was outstanding! Our guide, Rudy, was very knowledgeable about the culture and places we visited and very willing to answer all of our questions. I still cannot believe what we packed into four hours and it was not at all rushed! Tour was well-planned for visits to historical and cultural places, as well as entertainment attractions. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Acapulco!

As a history buff I just loved visiting The San Diego Fort. Built in 1616, it was intended to protect Acapulco, the main port of the western coast of Mexico, where the ship from China arrived delivering a lot of Asian goods that would cross by land to Veracruz in the Gulf of Mexico, from there to Cuba and then to Spain. It is a nice museum, pretty well kept and in the downtown of Acapulco with a good view of the bay. We also visited the municipal market was awesome, I always visit the markets wherever I go as in my opinion is the best way to get to know and learn about the country, the one of Acapulco surely not disappoint, colorful and interesting, my favorite part was the witch doctor visit. Thank you Arturo for a great day!

Rudy is the best, we received so much information and got to see things in the market that only a native Mexican could have shown us. He is so knowledgeable and kind. Rudy and his partner Santiago each had their strengths and allowed each other to convey their expertise. Such a wonderful tour.

Roger and Jose are a wealth of information and it shows the love the city where they live as much as sharing their knowledge about this city. The fort of San Diego is the home of a very nice museum we visited for no less than one hour and a half, the visit to the mural of Diego Rivera was very interesting not to mention that the diving exhibition was a treat, all in all a great excursion. Thanks Jose and Roger.
