We spent an amazing day on this tour with Roseando. He's an excellent guide - very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating and conversant in English and French. The vehicle was clean, roomy, and comfortable. All stops on the tour were fascinating and has made us want to visit Campeche again.

A most wonderful experience at a most fascinating city, learning about its fascinating history, in particular in relation to their battles with the pirates, as well as the Mayan history. The stop on the way in Becal was also fascinating, a little town where they make those Mexican hats, it was amazing to see how those hats were made. The lunch at Campeche in the historical area was very tasty Mexican foods, this for one who usually prefers western-style foods and avoids Mexican where possible!! Guide was very knowledgeable, and being very challenged when it came to Spanish, having a bilingual guide who spoke English was very much appreciated!! Highly recommended for a day visit to a fascinating place on the Gulf coast just two hours drive from Merida.

I wound up with a private tour the day I went to Campeche. The tour guides were great. The lunch was very good. I really enjoyed the tour around the old city and the fortress. Becal was also very interesting. Josua and Rosendo were extremely good, accommodating guides. A very good day trip!

Campeche is a very interesting town in a beautiful and historic spot. The colonial center of town is extremely well-preserved. At the same time, it's not what I would regard as a must see attraction in the region. Guide was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating.

We had a wonderful day trip to Campeche and Becal, from Merida! It was a long drive, but our guide, Josue, and driver, Rosendo offered lots of information about the region, and kept the conversation going with humour and suggestions of places to visit. The stop in Becal for a demonstration of the hat making process was really interesting, and there was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything. Josue was very receptive to the group, and gave us options as to what to see and do while in Campeche. I think we had a good compromise of walking the walled part of the city, visiting museums, and stopping wherever we saw something interesting. Our lunch was delicious, and it was a pleasure to have a lively and interesting chat amongst all of us, as we ate. Rosendo was an excellent driver, and both Josue and Rosendo made for an interesting and informative day....with lots of laughs too!

We were very happy with our tour. Our guide, Josue was not only knowledgeable, but warm and friendly. We enjoyed visiting both places and especially seeing how the hand made hats were made in Becal. On top of all the good things on the tour it was only the two of us!

There were only 2 people I didn't know her personally on that day but my guide could not manage the time properly. OK, I was faster and she was slower but it's not a good excuse. Why? He should have told her how much time we got in each place, he shouldn't have let her spend too much time at some places. Worse than that, when we were walking together in Campeche, he should not have asked her if she wanted to buy something at a shop. A good guide should let people do shopping during the free time, not the time we are in a group together. Because he asked her if she wanted to buy something at a shop and she decided to do shopping, I had to wait for her in front of the shop! And in the end, I had no free time to walk in Campeche on my own!

Our guide was very knowledgable and the scenery was spectacular.
