Absolutely the best way to see Cozumel! We booked a private driver for 5 hours and requested an experience that included history, culture, lunch and tequila tasting. Alex was our driver and was so accommodating to all our requests.
We visited a Mayan cultural center that included us making tamales, chocolate and learning about Mayan culture. Excellent stop. We requested lunch at a local/non touristy spot and Alex took us to the perfect place located on the beach that served freshly caught fish. Fabulous.
The tequila tasting however was a disappointment. I had done a tequila tasting in Cozumel on another visit that was presented very differently. Much more educational and enjoyable. Unfortunately, this location was a rushed touristy spot that was a letdown. But I would definitely book with Alex again and overall,say this was the perfect way to see Cozumel.

Our tour with Victor was wonderful! Our ship came in late so we had to adjust the plan but thanks to Victor, we got to do everything we wanted, including seeing the Mayan ruins at San Gervasio and eating a delicious dinner at a local restaurant. We were traveling with two older teens (18 & 19) as well as 87 yo Grandma so flexibility and personalization were high on our list. Victor took us everywhere we wanted to go, shared stories and history of the island and made sure we were back on time for our ship's departure. We enjoyed meeting him and loved the level of service and professionalism he brings—along with a great sense of humor and warm smile!

Our tour guide, Gerry, was so amazing! It was an extremely hot day when we visited Cozumel, so our afternoon in Gerry's van was incredible. He was such a great tour guide and customized our trip for us! We did the chocolate tasting (excellent!) and the beach club (we had an hour in the clear blue water!), and had lunch on the island at a fish restaurant he recommended (the fish was so fresh, we picked it out straight of the cooler). He knows all the best spots on the island, having lived there for 30+ years! Since we were so hot, we opted out of the tequila tasting and asked Gerry if we could go to the Mayan Bee Sanctuary. He said sure! On our way there, he stopped on the side of the road so we could try a roadside snack - puffed flour chips topped with a sweet and spicy red sauce. Also, on our way to lunch, we also stopped for a fresh coconut drink with some young coconut strips and pineapple topped with tajin spice.

I definitely recommend this tour as the best way to see Cozumel! We had an incredible time.

Would recommend this private tour. The driver was waiting for us ahead of time right outside the main shopping structure holding a sign with my name on it. He was very accommodating and you can easily communicate what kind of things you'd like to focus on for your tour. The chocolate tasting was delicious and they teach you how chocolate is made. Afterwards you have the option of purchasing your favorites from their shop. The tequila tasting was great as well. Definitely brought some back with us! I recommend you getting the add-ons for the tequila tour for an extra $5. You get a little delicious treat along the way if you do!

Gerry was an outstanding tour guide for us. He met us exactly where stated and a little early too. We told him some things we wanted to experience and off we went. Gerry slowed down for us to take key photos along the route. He helped explain the local culture. He was courteous and funny and completely tailored the day to what we wanted to see and do. We toured the island, went to the chocolate shop and tequila tasting, snorkled on Money Bar Beach, walked in the sand, and so much more. We originally signed up for 5 hours but we had so much fun we decided to buy a few extra hours and spent the entire day with Gerry. I can't recommend this tour enough if you want to explore Cozumel and do it through a unique and custom experience.

Our group of four adults had an amazing day in Cozumel on a private tour led by Victor. Victor was the best!!!!!! He made sure we were taken care of. He filled every single request on our bucket list and delivered much more. He would even walk with us as we shopped, took us to the best places, carried our purchases for us, and made our day in Cozumel the best. We asked for photo ops, pretty beaches, sightseeing, wanted to go to the east side of the island, asked to go to Coconuts, shopping, etc. He made sure we got to do every single thing we requested and had us back at our ship in plenty of time to look around at the port.

We found out during the tour that it was actually Victor's day off but he agreed to come in and guide us since we requested him. Such a nice gesture on his part!

If you have a day in Cozumel, please check out Tours Plaza and ask for Victor if he is available. You won't be sorry! You will leave feeling like he is family.

As all the reviews say be sure to get Gerry as your guide. He was wonderful. Met us at our hotel and informed us of our adventures for the day. He has lived on the island for 30+ years and has so much knowledge to share. We started at an off the beaten path restaurant to try cochnita pibil tacos. They were delicious. We did the chocolate tasting, which I found to be very interesting. This is something I would not have thought to do while visiting. He found a wonderful place to go tequila tasting, El Buen Bouquet. The guide there was so much fun. We learned so much about tequila. Ended up bringing home 4 bottles. Also walked through San Gervasio ruins. Personally I would skip this and spend the money seeing Chichen Itza. To wrap up our day we went snorkeling at Sky Reef (see review). Gerry never rushed us throughout the day. We had plenty of time everywhere we went. He was so kind and sweet. If you want to see the island I would absolutely recommend this private tour.

Hola! We're glad to hear you had a great time with Gerry. Definitely one of the advantages of our tour is that you can go to places that maybe you did not have in mind. We appreciate your recommendation.

My husband and I have been to Cozumel many times, but have never done some of the classic tours such as the Chocolate or Tequila shop tours and we have never been to the less inhabited side of the island. We chose this tour because it mentioned a stop to see the classic WW II Mexican Air Force planes as well as the typical stops. The tour was great and the lunch at Punta Morena was terrific!

Our guide, Alex, was informative and flexible:) Many thanks.

Antonio was superb, showing us many interesting spots on the island of Cozumel. Highlights were the gorgeous east coast with its beautiful beaches, the tequila distillery with taste tests, and Antonio's in depth knowledge of the history of Cozumel. He gave us many choices of what to visit along with recommendations, and it turned out great!
