Chilly Willy was a terrific guide with lots of info regarding the area. We are so glad that we signed up with your company and had him for our guide, definitely an experience to remember.
Excellent tour and our tour guide, Chilly Willy, was knowledgable and very informative.

This tour was great. We had Chilly Willy and he was awesome
This was the strangest way to get a tour. We were told through a phone call to go to Vista Tours. We went a day before our tour to make sure we could find the place and see about the time to arrive. We were told to arrive before 9:00 as the tour started then. On tour day we arrived at 8:30 and the office was locked. A woman showed up shortly and told us our tour would not begin until 10:00. We returned and were told to get in a clean van, which we did. The driver did not speak English and he said we were going on the tequilla tour, which we tried to tell him we had not signed up for. He took us to the tequilla factory. It turns out that this was actually the tour beginning, Once we got on that van with Abbie we were on our way for the correct tour. Abbie was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed her sense of humor and the explanations she gave us. We took a walking tour through the market and Old Town. We viewed the Cathedral and went to watch a cliff diver. We, of course, stopped at the cruise line jewelry store. The dropped us at a location close to our condo, which was nice. It was slated to be a 4 hour tour but was only three hours. Abbie was fantastic!
The tour was good but the city was under construction so a lot of the roads were impassable. But what we did get to see was nice. The weather was hot and humid but that didn't stop us from enjoying it. The time spent in the mercado ? was a little too long but we grabbed an ice cream bar and spent the remaining time enjoying that with the sights and sounds. Mazatlan is a beautiful place and once the construction is done it will be better.
Mix up getting started. 45 minutes delay in getting our driver. Extra time going to the office for 1 visitor to use their credit card to pay for the tour. The tour was very nice. Would have liked more time with the divers. Too much time at the jewelry store but others were buying. Felt rushed because the cruise ship was in port for such a short time. Otherwise very satisfactory. We liked our guide.
This tour was a shore excursion that gave us a great overall perspective of Mazatlan city. We were able to get out of the bus at several locations and enjoy the scenery, including the famous cliff divers. The tour guide was very friendly and patient at every stop and gave historical information while traveling to each stop. I would definitely recommend this tour especially for first-time visitors to Mazatlan.

Similar to cruise ship excursion but much cheaper. Had trouble at beginning finding guide as he was from a different tour company than shown on voucher .Luckily we asked otherwise would probably have been left behind .Guide was informative ,
The tour guide was good. The only thing is that they take you to places that they want you to spend money at, jewelry shops, markets, tequila store, etc.
Not family friendly and not what we expected. We got off our ship and found the tour operator. We preceded to wait for 30 minutes apparently for one other couple who never showed. Since it was just us, I think they were trying to sell other people on it to go with.
We piled into the van kids and all and drove into the city. We picked up another local couple who were going on another tour. We then literally drive in circles around the same block 3 times. Not sure what we were looking for. Next we drive to the north part of the city and then back down to the same area we came from. Minimum historic and local information given during this circle drive.
We got to our first stop. A local distillery gift shop. There we could taste local spirits and liqueurs. The kids were bored. We then got into a different van with two other families. This was the real tour group. We made our way through the city to a local market. Quite a culture shock for the kids. Raw meat just out in the open. Pigs heads, tripe, raw fish etc... I liked it but the rest of the family was not expecting to see that. We then made our way to the cathedral. Very nice.
The cliff diving show was interesting. Hard push for tips.
Downtown or Old Town Mazatlan was interesting.
After that we stopped at a Silver Jewelry shop where they provided beverages but no food.
What was to be a 2-3 hour tour turned into 5 hours. All without any food stops, snacks, anything. We made it back to the ship on time but were starving and a little worried we may miss the ship.
Know what you are getting into first. Next time we may opt for a Cruise Ship Sponsored excursion.
