I have known Gerardo for over 20 years now from the very beginning of my career in the tourism industry. I first met him when I lived in Cancun and worked for a Destination Management Company specializing in bringing very high end corporate incentive programs and meetings to the area. We only used the best of the best guides for our clients and Gerardo was always on the top of my list. Whenever he was looking after my clients I had 100% confidence that they would be in the best of hands. 20 somewhat years later I woudl still recommend him to anyone visiting the area who wants to make their expeience even that much more special. His professionalism, knowledge of the destination, passion for what he does and love for his country is invaluable.

At the time I lived in Cancun and worked for a Destination Management Company specializing in bringing high end corporate incentive groups and meetings into the destination. Due to the VIP nature of our clients we would only use the best of the best in tour guides and Gerry was always at the top of my list. Whenever he would be assigned to my groups I always had 100% confidence that my guests would be well taken care of and they all loved him. Twenty somewhat hears later I would still recommend him to anyone who wants to make their Mexico experience one of a kind and special. His professionalism, extensive knowledge, passion for what he does and love of his country is invaluable.
Gerardo has been helping my family and I arrange special tours in and around Cancun for over 10 years. We met when I was looking for someone to take us to some birding areas in the Yucatan. Gerardo, working with Luis Ku, was one of the first tour guides to understand the value of birding and ecotourism. Subsequently, he has taken us to Sian Kaan, Muyil, Chetumal, Chachoban, Bacalar and other areas. A few years ago, I was hosting a reunion for some law school chums and asked him if he could set up a special tour to Chichen Itza. His tour (his wife led our group) was excellent. On one days notice, he also set up a special trip for one of my law school friends to Coba. This year, we are going out west to explore another part of the Yucatan peninsula. I have enough confidence in my friend, Gerardo, to be completely comfortable with whatever he comes up with.
Gerardo is the best guide I have ever had. Having taken 20+ student and adult groups to Mexico, Spain, Africa and Costa Rica, I have seen many guides. He is the best. He is knowledgeable. He relates very well to students and adults. He is flexible. He knows how to engage his listeners. He makes a lasting impression. If you really want to have a good time learning about Mexico, he it the and quot;go to and quot; person.
I have gone on a tour with Gerardo twice, to Chichen Itza. He is a wonderful guide. I don't know if there is anyone as knowledgeable about Mayan Ruins as him. He truly loves what he is doing, and it shows. One of the times that we were at Chichen Itza, he was explaining what we were looking at, and little by little, other people that were not in our group, started wandering over into our group to listen to him. They were also intrigued by his knowledge and history of this wonderful place. That is a great compliment to his talent! I'm sure I will travel to Chichen Itza again, and I would not go unless I could have Gerardo as my guide! He AND Chichen Itza are the best!
Gerardo Ham is one of the best, most experienced, most professional Mexico guides that I have ever worked with. Anyone who wants personal service with a wonderful personality would be lucky to hire him.
