We didn't expect to find a town that reminded us of Palm Springs, CA.....without the traffic. Then to have the added extra of a beautiful coastline with its many bays and coves. Yes it was hot but we plan on returning for an extended stay during the winter months to further explore.
We very much enjoyed the smaller group and learning about the culture and visiting various places to shop. The guide was very knowledgeable and willing to help with recommending where to purchase items. He also was very proud of Mexico and wanted to share his country with us. We'd recommend this excursion.

Very good tour. The group size was perfect. The places we visited were interesting, and relevant. Our guide was professional and easy to connect with.
Don Pepe was our guide. He was very informative about what we were seeing and experiencing. The tour included learning about weaving and wool dying, mezcal making, and the history of the area. It was well worth our time.

Our guide, was well prepared for our tour. He took us up and above the naval base so that we could see the outline of the coast and our cruise ship. The city is very well planned and hope it can stay that way. Nice to see the large resorts are set off from the town. The family owned weaving company was very informative and very proud of their heritage.
Huatulco was a wonderful surprise. What a special place. It was pristine and beautifully developed. Our guide was more than outstanding. My husband & I were the only people on the tour, and we could not have asked for a better tour. I highly recommend it.

Small van tour. Excellent. A/C perfect. Many great stops to see the area. Tour guide really knew the city. Great way to see the area in a short time.
Super day with lots to see and do. Satisfying!
Lunch was intriguing.

Almost didn't even do I tour here but glad I did. And pleased it wasn't cancelled since there were only two of us. Took us up top the cliff for view down; over to the high-end resort area just to see fancy hotels; then into the small old-town square where we went to the same shops the rest of cruise passengers were it. We were shown how the rugs were woven, dyed, etc. No real pressure to buy however. Then to mescal, mole, coffee shop for tasting. We still didn't buy anything. We are not shoppers. But it was all interesting to see. I'm sure we were a disappointment to the driver and shop owners. But we saw more of the area than if we had just gotten off the ship and wandered around on our own. So that was good.

First time visit to Huatulco, so a good overview of the area and learning about the local customs and traditions. Alex was a very good guide and had a very comfortable air conditioned van.
Great tour. We got to see all the sites around Huatulco. If you take this tour be sure to let the locals take you photo at the Huatulco sign. They bring them to you back at the pier and they do a really first class job.
Pepe was a terrific guide. Van was nice and cool on a very hot day. The weaving factory was very interesting. Since it was a Sunday, few people were working, but the owner stopped what he was doing to show us how the weaving was done. City was gorgeous; didn't want tour to end. Thinking of booking a vacation here. Recommended it to my daughter for her honeymoon.
Benjamin was a great tour guide!
Pepe' our tour guide was terrific. Try the roasted crickets they taste like chicken.
Love the idea of port ick up and drop off, no worries and you are guaranteed to return to ship on time.

limited secondary to heat, humidity and my limited mobility. Guide very pleasant and did his bes t to make it a good experience. He was very helpful in walking back to ship to get me a wheelchair to use to return to ship---was an exceptionally long walk and very hot!
