This excursion was well organized and the pace was perfect! Adrian was attentive to the needs of all of us. He was able to interact with everyone. He made sure one couple got back to their ship before the tour ended. The activities were interesting and the cooking was excellent! The chef was creative, funny and kept everyone together. We would recommend this tour for all adults!

This adventure was so much fun. It ran a bit late but your company got us back to the ship on time!!! e would do it again!!!
So much to see, our guide was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and fun. The cooking lesson was a riot and we met the nicest people. Highly recommended this tour
This tour was the best one we have ever had in Cozumel. It took you to places that not everyone gets to see. The Tequilera was very interesting and we were able to buy some incredible tequila that is not available in the U.S. The cooking class was so much fun and included everything from appetizers to dessert. Plus they captured some amazing photos of us cooking. I would definitely do this one again!

We started with a tequila tour and bought some! Then we had a chocolate tour, which was nice. But the best was the cooking class. My wife who is a great cook and a professional level baker had a very enjoyable time. We cooked our lunch! The chef had some good tips and was right there with us while we put it all together. If you want a lesson, good food and down an alcoholic drink or two or three, while working and eating, this would be a great time for you.
