Good tour, easy to locate guide off the cruise ship and the van was clean, air conditioning worked great and easy to access. Tour took us to shops with demonstrations of local crafts and tequila tasting but did not feel pressured into buying as I had on previous tours. Company was good about a refund for members of our party that had to cancel due to a medical emergency.

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.
