Won't issue a refund
May 2020
Our May cruise was cancelled and the operator is refusing to issue a refund, which is against their own policies.

Hola, due to the Covid19 pandemic, since March 20th, all the Cozumel bound cruise ships have been canceled, and no tourists are coming to the Island either. All this has caused a cash flow problem for us, and it is for this reason that we haven't been able to refund you. But please don't believe that we are trying to avoid our responsibility. We hope that the cruise lines will begin operating sometime again, everything will go back to normal and we'll be able to refund you. We are asking here for a little patience. Thank you for your understanding.

Amazing private tour...great driver
Mar 2020
From the booking with Eduardo who had excellent email communication, to meeting our driver Leo at the cruise port, our tour was organized from the start. We had fun and enjoyed our tour of Cozumel. Leo's van was clean, comfortable and with cold air conditioning. He accommodated all of our requests and needs. We wanted to experience Cozumel from a local's perspective, and Leo did not disappoint. He took us to a neighborhood restaurant to have some authentic tacos, to a tequila tasting experience, to lunch on the beach with our feet in the sand. He made sure we got back to our ship in plenty of time. When looking for a shore excursion in Cozumel, don't hesitate to book with Tours Plaza.

Another excellent private tour with Tours Plaza
Mar 2020
I can't say enough about our tour. I toured with Tours Plaza 4 years ago and booked them again when I went on a recent cruise with my cousin. Our driver was Enrique and he was absolutely fantastic. We started off with Tequila tasting and then on to the ruins, after that we went and toured an authentic Mayan village called Pueblo Del Maize. If you ever go to Cozumel this place is a "must see". We wrapped up our tour by going to my favorite restaurant and we invited Enrique to have lunch with us. He was such a nice young man and we thoroughly enjoyed his company and spending the day with him.
So if you are ever in Cozumel contact Tours Plaza and the manager Eduardo is very helpful and will return emails usually the very same day. Thank you again Eduardo, Enrique and Tours Plaza for a wonderful day in Cozumel.

Fourth Time with Tours Plaza
Mar 2020
When you find something that works you stick with it! We have used Tours Plaza on four different occasions and they have always delivered more than we expected. Leo is an excellent guide and we have requested him since the first time. He has great knowledge of the Island and always makes sure that we are getting exactly what we want out of our day! Whether it is sightseeing or just a casual trip around the loop he is your guy!

Feb 2020
We had a private AC van with Juan as our guide. He was amazing- very knowledgable of the area and very kind. We were able to see many places in Cozumel and he never rushed us. We felt very comfortable with Juan and would HIGHLY reccoment him! Thank you JUAN for making our trip a memorable one!
The directions given where to locate our driver after booking our excursion were very easy to follow and the company was great to work with.

Great time
Feb 2020
Our group consisted of 8 adults. All of our communication before hand was done via email. All of our questions were answered promptly. The only issue we had was the Mayan Ruins cost more than we were told.
Gerry was AMAZING. He was exactly were we were told he would be. The meeting location was easy to find. Gerry was very informative. He knew we wanted local Vanilla and took us to a local store and we paid a fraction of what we would have in the port. We went to Señor Iguana for lunch it was the best food we had the entire vacation. We would certainly use Tours Plaza if we were every in Cozumel again.

Good overall but a bit more touristy than I expected
Feb 2020 • Couples
Our driver was great, friendly, on time and professional. No complaints there! We stopped at a local market for a couple of beers to start our tour. At $1 US each it was a good deal. We were asked where we wanted to go and I just said “somewhere not too touristy” and mentioned that I wanted to for sure do some snorkeling and hit a good authentic local restaraunt with a decent view. He then stated that the chocolate factory and tequila factory tours were included so we said yes to those. However, I hadn’t realized just how long those tours would take and so most of our 5 hours was sucked up by just those 2 tours which were OK overall but certainly shouldn’t have taken so long. Although they were both a short distance from each other, the chocolate tour consisted of joining another group of about 8 people which made it take longer. Then just too many samples with lots of talking in between. The chocolate was good, and the factory was very small but interesting... just took too much of our time. Next was the tequila factory tour which wasn’t actually a factory, but more of a little tourist trap with a few little areas setup to listen to them talk about the Mayan calendar, culture and other things unrelated to tequila in general. The tour should have taken 30 minutes tops, including tequila tasting but instead took more like 90 minutes. This would have been ok except by the time we were done with just these 2 activities it was almost 4 hours into our 5 hour allotted time and we were getting close to having to board the cruise ship again. It was 2 pm and our tour was supposed to end around 3. We still hadn’t eaten anything yet, nor had we done any snorkeling. So I opted to snorkel instead of eat at this point. Due to limited time left our driver took us to a very touristy snorkeling spot where we paid $20 more each for snorkeling gear, and a free Drink. The snorkeling was lousy since most coral was dead
