I stayed in Acapulco for 4 days and decided to see the city with the help of Tour By Van booked through Viator. My tour guide Mario was punctual and very accommodating. He took me throughout the City and provided me with the history of Acapulco along with some interesting information you cannot find in your history books. I give this tour company an A+. My tour exceeded my expectations!
This was a tour I will never forget. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about not only the main sites but about many aspects of Acapulco. They also made the tour a lot of fun and included a lot more experiences in the tour than was advertised. This was an excellent experience.
The most important thing for any tour in a foreign country is a guide that thoroughly understands the culture of the location and the culture of its guests. Rudy spent the entire day ensuring that each one of his guests were safe, entertained, and comfortable. His respectful relationship and interactions with the locals in each location was a testament to the type of person and guide that he is. He is genuinely proud of his city and helped us to embrace many of the things that, as Americans, we may have been afraid to see or understand. His detailed knowledge and entertaining delivery of information was very engaging. We got the added benefit of a second guide, Beto, who ably assisted with our group and he and Rudy handed-off responsibility of meeting the needs of diverse guests. They allowed us to choose how adventurous or how safe we wanted to be. The walking tour through the market was a once-in-a-lifetime eyeful of the true Acapulco culture. It was a fast walk through a catacomb of dozens and dozens of vendors with every imaginable ware. It is not a shopping tour - so don't expect to buy souvenirs here it is a cultural tour that you will likely not see from any other guide. Again, Rudy's relationship with many of the vendors, including a vendor where we stopped and ate a freshly made gordita, was an essential part of this tour's success. He lives and runs a business in the area and his connections with the community made us feel safe throughout our trip. He offered an honest and genuine depiction of life in Acapulco, both good and bad. Rudy, with Beto's assistance, is THE guide to show you the multi-dimensions of Acapulco. We had an excited time, starting with the baby sea turtle release. We each got to hold two baby sea turtles, hold them high, name them, and wish them well as we set them on the sand and watched them find their way into the big ocean. We then went to the Chapel of Peace the first quiet place in all of Acapulco :, a tour of the wealthy, middle class, and poor neighborhoods, a walk through the markets, and a front row seat for the cliff divers. We paid a little extra got a seat in the restaurant to watch the cliff divers in order to get some shade and enjoy a cold drink - it was a great view. Lunch at La Cabana was also delicious and the staff were very attentive and appreciative. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour. Our group opted not to stop for shopping at the end of our trip and, throughout the day, Rudy did not pressure us to do anything that we did not want to do. We feel much better about safer in Acapulco because of this tour.
This is a fabulous tour. Our guide Rudy was very informative. The baby turtle release was the highlight for me. We also enjoyed the divers, the neighbourhood tours and the local market. Excellent value for our money.
This tour was awesome. My 7 yr old son loved the turtle release. Jose and Alex's knowledge of Acapulco is unbelievable. They take you to areas that are in addition to what is listed here. They are very kind. They make a video of the morning and emailed it to me. Wonderful people wonderful tour!
