Excellent tour. Eduardo our guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable and super friendly/attentive. We especially enjoyed the trip through the Mazatlan countryside. We saw multiple artisans at work - brick makers, tile makers, bakers, and even a hot spring that locals use to wash their clothing. Highly recommend this tour for those new to Mazatlan...and even those not so new who have never ventured beyond the golden zone or old town.
Tour was outstanding and Eduardo was an exceptional tour guide!! I use a wheelchair and have mobility issues. Eduardo was there to assist me and pushed wheelchair throughout tour. He is a wealth of knowledge of the area. The day was delightful and we are glad we chose this tour. Best day of our wk.
This was a fantastic tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Carlos who was an exceptional guide. His knowledge of the history of the area and his winning personality made this day the highlight of our stay. Getting out of town and mingling with the locals in the small villages was so delightful. We bought fruits and vegetables from right off of a truck parked in front of the bakery where we also enjoyed some delicious fresh cookies. We watched craftsmen work their magic in clay, using techniques that have been passed down for centuries. Lunch in Concordia was simply scrumptious. We couldn't have had a more delightful day.
Our tour guide Juan was non-stop informative about everything we saw on this tour. Very nice if you like to see more than just the city. Juan was flexible to our desires and instead of a mexican lunch we had the best shrimp at El Muchacho Alegre over the beach in town.
This was a great tour! We would recommend to everyone. We LOVED Juan Carlo. He was the best. He was knowledgeable and gave us as much time as we wanted at each stop. I was busy writing about the experience the entire time and he didn't hesitate to repeat or elaborate when ever I asked. Each of the stops were interesting and well worth the trip. Not to mention the treat we received in Concordia-- You will have to take the trip to find out
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We have been to Mazatlan several times and have been on a Tour of the Old city before. We decided on this tour as two of our fellow travelers were new to Mazatlan and that it was a small group tour. Our driver sorry I cannot remember his name met us at our hotel prior to our pickup time he was early, as he stated he preferred to wait for us than the other way around, we were also the only ones in our van there were 6 of us. He was very knowledgeable and provided additional insights into Mazatlan of things and areas that we previously had not heard about. We started off the tour driving to and through Old Town with our driver explaining all the points of interest as we went. From there we departed the city to the towns of Villa Union and Concordia, stopping along the way to see how bricks are made by hand this was extremely interesting, how traditional hand made tiles are made and then a stop at a home bakery we enjoyed many of their delicious breads at very reasonable prices. Our group enjoyed the tour and we recommend this tour to first timers or even those that have been on other tours.
Absolutely GREAT tour. Our tour guide was Juan and he was AMAZING. He was so knowledgeable and shared so much information with us. He has a great personality and very easy to talk to. He was very willingly to answer all of our questions and we enjoyed the experience. When we left Mazatlán we headed two small communities. We visited a family owned bakery and a artistic floor tile shop in Malpica. On the way to Concordia we stopped at a pottery shop and stopped to look at the carved furniture business. Juan gave us information about the processes, history and stories about these items. In Concordia Juan explained the history of the founders and town itself. We had time to also wonder around the little shops before we left. Juan gave us plenty of time to look around and take pictures. Next we headed back to Old town Mazatlán. We did a great tour of old town, the historic parts and all the highlights. He gave us a lot of information to be able to venture out on our own on other days. He also gave us things we should see and do on our own. He was very helpful on good places to eat, shop and also get the best peso exchange. To finish up this great day we went to a restaurant that served delicious Mexican food. This is definitely well worth the money!! We were picked up at 9:30 and got back to our hotel about 4:30.
I would highly recommend this tour for first time visitors, especially if your tour guide is Juan. However, if you have been to Mazatlán before it is still a great tour. This is also a good tour if your alone or your partner doesn't want to go. We felt very safe at all times. But, Juan said he would stay with us if we wanted him to or he would let us look around on our own. Juan is absolutely GREAT and is a real asset to the tour company. We have a different tour booked through the same company and I hope we get Juan.
I hope this review helps you in your decision.
Went on the tour with Ismael. He did a great job showing us around and providing a lot of history and local custom. Answered any question we had. Stopped by the most amazing little bakery in a back room of someone's house. Wood fired oven. Smelled divine. By far the best Mexican bread I have ever had. Back streets of old town and see a couple of little churches as well as the big cathedral. Very worthwhile excursion. Very new and comfortable van.
