We had a wonderful time. Jeancarlo is an excellent tour guide. We were the only couple on the tour so he was our personal guide for the day. Great information during the sightseeing portion. We also enjoyed Stone Island, it was a secluded area. Wonderful day! Thank you Jeancarlo!!!

Jeancarlo Jimenez Zamora, our tour guide is knowledgeable, delightful, professional, and totally service oriented. We had him as our private tour guide for about 6 hours. Very gracious!! The tour included observing the cliff divers, tour of the cathedral and market place downtown, a ferry to stone island along with two activities ie. horseback riding and banana boat ride. We really got our money's worth and a wonderfully compatible tour guide in Jeancarlo. This tour is a must!!

Our tour guide, Jeancarlo, was kind, personable and knowledgeable. The tour was interesting and fun, from the boat to Stone Island to the city portion of the tour, we found it interesting and fun. We started with a boat excursion to see some of the rock formations and caves in the ocean, and were treated to a dolphin escort for part of it. Then we cruised over to Stone Island, where we took a tractor-drawn trailer ride to our restaurant. There we were given the opportunity to participate in 2 activities of our choosing. We chose to tour Stone Island on a horse-drawn trailer, and our driver sang to us beautifully the entire way. It was great fun and culturally interesting. Then back to the restaurant for a delicious lunch. We had the option to do another activity, but we chose to sit it out there was a marriage proposal involved : When this portion of the tour was done, we went back to the mainland where Jeancarlo took us for a tour of downtown. He had a lot of information regarding the history of Mazatlán, and how in recent years the economy has suffered. The people here are working so hard to recover, and in my humble opinion they are doing a beautiful job of it. Hats off to the wonderful people here! This tour was well worth doing, and we would do it again.

The tour of the city with Eduardo was great....he loves Mazatlán and knows so much about it since he was born and raised there. Both my sister in Law and I enjoyed that the most.....the boat trip to Stone Island was OK, my sister in law fell, didn't see the step and that shook her up awhile since she just turned 70 years of age....we didn't do any of the shore excursions because she was shakey but I brought the playing cards so we played cards and enjoyed the lunch.....I also enjoyed a couple Modelos great that they were was a beautiful day in the sun and nice location right on the beach......just watch your steps.....

The tour was just okay. We got to see downtown, market area and the historical parts of the city.
The Stone Island beach part of the tour was disappointing not much to see just another beach.They give us lunch and was very limited on your choices. We chose to do the Horse Ride on the beach and that took about 10 minutes in all. Felt sorry for the horses they look so tired and burn out not worth it.

The tour of the Mazatlan was cool. It was nice seeing downtown and the historical parts of the city. For that reason, I'll give the tour 2 stars. S/N: You will not be taken to the 'Golden Zone' with all of the hotels and such, so if you are cruising and would like to see that part of the city too, I do not recommend this tour!
The Stone Island beach part is overrated and was frankly a waste of time. Yes, you go to the beach, but it's not a nicer beach. It's hidden, located in the older part of town down a dirt road. They get a plus for the food. Very authentic. However, the lunch options provided with the tour are terribly limited. The full menu is better, but you have to pay more money for it. The all you can drink is laughable. If you want a beer, it's extra, and they use fake, flat soda and tang or something as opposed to real orange juice as a base of the watery mixed drinks. There are two sides. If you book through a cruise line, the bar seemed to be a little nicer.
We my group opted for the Horse Ride on the beach the main reason we did this tour and the Horse carriage ride. My Goodness!!! I've seen this on other islands and It always, always looked so beautiful so I thought we'd try it. Not at all like it! We never got instructions for riding the horse. We asked and told the guy leading the tour we were novices, but he didn't provide any. The horses looked overworked, and the part of the ride on the beach lasted for perhaps 2 minutes! Never again!!! And the carriage. If you are envisioning a carriage ride through central park, don't!!! It was another overworked horse pulling a broke down and leaning cart with torn and tattered seats!!! Sirs!!!
TripAdvisor --- I rely on you to give me the information straight. Viator --- I expected more from you, being linked to TripAdvisor and all. This was disappointing. I'm not a really picky person, but for 55 this tour could use an upgrade or just be advertised for what it is. Please, do better.
