We began our day with meeting Ronnie at the hotel where the tour began. He was sweet and funny. We got into our dune buggies and took off for a trip around the island. Our first stop was at a gorgeous beach where the water was warm and clear. We also were able to enjoy an adult beverage at a beautiful location, the office. We then got back into our dune buggies with Omar see the pictures below in the front leading us, and Ronnie at the back of the group, and headed to our text stop. El Cedral is a Mayan village where we visited a local resident's home, enjoyed a homemade taco, saw a small mayan ruin and the first Mayan Catholic Church, did some tequila testing and buying, and shopped in the little village. The things we learned we amazing! We then headed back into town and did some snorkeling and had lunch all included in the tour. Ronnie and Omar took extremely good care of us the entire day and made this excursion very memorable. They were there to answer all our questions, provide for our every need, and make us laugh. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Great tour! The cars were great, be aware that they are standard, so practice before going : the drive was awesome, cultural part was very nice, made food for us, had drinks, beach stop was a nice area, just to get some pictures, etc. The snorkeling was very nice, rough winds made the waves tough but swimmable. Great tour, great tour guides and the group was fun!

Ronnie and Jose were amazing guides. We saw parts of the island that were just breathtaking. The buggies were clean and went fast! Would recommend this tour to anyone. Wished we would have had more beach time and the food at the hotel wasn't the greatest, But the rest of the trip was fantastic.

Our guides were excellent. The best quality vehicle I have rented in Cozumel. The snorkel was fun. Enjoyed the cultural experience of the Tequila tour, dioramas, art work etc. I have been to Cozumel 5 times and always rented a vehicle and drove around the island on my own. This was much more relaxing because everything was planned for us and all we had to do is follow the leader. Highly recommended.

Omar and Jose were terrific. They were very concerned about our safety which was very important. We got to stop at at beaches and did shopping we would have missed on our trip if we hadn't of taken this tour. The buggies were a blast: you need to know how to drive standard! Thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable.
