THE TOUR IS TOTALLY MISREPRESENTED

1. The tour was scheduled for Monday. Late Sunday afternoon the agency called to tell us we had to take the tour Tuesday since the hacienda shop was not open on Monday. Since there is a sign in front stating they are only open Tuesday through Sunday, why did they originally confirm our reservation for Monday? We had other plans on Tuesday that we had to cancel. It would appear that this agency has never sent anyone to any chocolate hacienda or they would have known this.

2. When the agency called since I speak fluent Spanish I asked whether we would have a guide this time since we did not have a guide . She assured me that we would have a certified guide. We only had a driver who had never been to the Comalcalco archeological site and admitted that he only did adventure tours. He stated that the problem was that the agency was closed for vacation

3. Bad enough that we did not have a guide all day as was stated in the description, the driver arrived a 7:45 am. However the voucher stated 8:30 am so we had to miss breakfast at the hotel Which was included with our room. The agency never advised us about a time change

4. We never received any chocolate recipes. There was no workshop where we will learn the recipe for making traditional chocolate and other chocolate based dishes. Your description states we would be at the haciendo for approximately 3 hours--broad exaggeration

5. the tour is not a full day tour.
