Martin our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He was very accommodating with some elderly women who were interrupting,never wanted to stop and get out. He should be a saint! I would take the tour again although it would be nice to have people who actually wanted to get out of the van and sight see.

Well worth the time to take this tour. Thanks for an enjoyable day.


3 star rating: Worth doing October 2013

the information given about the city on the tour was really informative, we did this tour our first day in the city, and I am glad we did, we got a glimpse of all the places we wanted to explore more, especially in old Mazatlan. Be prepared to spend money on this tour....it's half shopping trip to local businesses and half tour, I would have liked more site visits rather than going to different shops the tour works with.

Not good. The company viator used was not the best. The van was hot and crowded. We were supposed to get three drink coupons and we were told they didn't give them out for the tour. We showed them the paper from Viator shoeing we were supposed to get them and thru basically said too bad. Not good
