I am so glad we did this instead of one of the excursions through the cruise line. Gerry, our guide, was a gem. We were immediately comfortable interacting with him and excited to get started. The total party was my friend and myself, and another couple, so there was not much waiting and lots of fun conversation. Gerry did a great job of talking about Cozumel, Mexico, and the neighborhoods that we were driving through. The restaurants that we ate at were clean, attractive, and I would go back in a heart beat! The food was AMAZING!!!! I can't say enough how delicious the food was. The owners and staff were engaging and receptive. I was so happy to eat local food and try local drinks and see kids walking home from school and hear about the neighborhoods. This was a much better way to spend my money than buying over-priced margaritas at one of the tourist trap chain restaurants on the main drag.
You will not regret choosing this tour. If I'm ever lucky enough to go back to Cozumel, I will take this tour again.
Thank you, Gerry, for a memorable day!
This is a great tour for those who want to enjoy the real ambience of the Mexican people. Our guide, Jerry, was so personable and truly made the tour a memorable experience. Worth every penny!!
It was more than I expected. All of the places we visited had the friendliest people, the food was great and our guide, Jerry, was very nice, entertaining and informative. well worth the experience!
My husband and I very much enjoyed this tour and will look for similar opportunities for future vacations. Jerry was our tour guide and David was our driver. Both were excellent. We had 5 stops and each stop provided us a better understanding of authentic Mexican food. One stop was at a produce market where we were introduced to the ingredients of the food we ate to include veggies and fresh meat. This was a very fun, informative, and enjoyable way to spend our day in Cozumel. Much more enjoyable than just staying at the port stores and seeing the same souvenirs and jewelry that you find at every port.
Well organized tour with a excellent, English speaking guide. Restaurants were often small mom and pop places with much interest. All of the food was excellent: corn smut and cactus tortillas pork roasted underground in banana leaves ceviche of conch, octopus and shrimp home-made chicken soup and a bakery stop. Unusual juices and beers were included. We go a detailed review of items in the local farmer's market. Great experience! I would do it again tomorrow.
This was so much fun!!! The tour guide was amazing we ate food items I would of never tried on my own, cactus, octopus, barley water and many more items. We visited a local grocery which was very interesting. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a break from the tourist part of town or the ocean. One of our favorite tours.
This was a great tour. Not in the tourist area of town. We had a great tour guide . The food was very good and we enjoyed the fact that is was real down home Mexican food.
My whole family was so happy with this tour. Jerry, the tour guide, was very friendly and so informative. He worked with the restaurants to make sure everyone had a great experience and accommodated picky eaters. My 9 year old son was very hesitant at the beginning of the tour, but by the second restaurant he was ready to try it all! If you go on a culinary tour in Mexico, you will eat onions, pork, and fish. Most of the food is pretty mild on their own, but the sauces at the restaurants can get VERY spicy!
The trip to the local market was great. I only wish we could have taken food back with us on the ship! I would have loved to buy some of the beautiful local produce and spices.
If you would like to get off the beaten path and explore local culture beyond Senor Frogs, then I would highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful tour. The guide was able to answer questions about the food and history. I highly recommend this tour.
This was our second visit to Cozumel, and based on our previous positive experience with Viator in other cities we chose this tour. We met Gerry at the assigned point and were surprised that we were the only people participating. Gerry explained that we would be off the grid which is what we were looking for, but would not have known where to go on our own , or frankly been very comfortable in some of the districts. The first two stops were to shops where the owners lived in back, cooked in the middle, and served up front. The combinations were unusual, but delicious. Other reviewers have given good descriptions of the food itself, but the salsas and the drinks were special. I had never heard of hibiscus juice, or lemonade with cucumber, or apple soda and the salsas were all combinations we had never considered, but very good. At the third stop, I chose the octopus taco and my wife the shrimp. Both were outstanding. As our taxi driver drove us from stop to stop, Jerry gave us lots of information about the area, his background and made the tour a very positive experience. We cruise often and many stop in Cozumel. I wouldn't hesitate to join Jerry on another excursion.
