Our host Mario was really nice and the vehicles were rustic and fun shells of vw Jettas with metal doors. The tour was more of a lead than tour. Mario took us to the ruins, then we had to pay more to get a tour guide. Went to el cedral and got different sales pitches for stuff. Last we went snorkeling, which again you could lead yourself, or pay for a snorkel guide. Mario was nice and would likely be a good actual tour guideas he seemed to know the island well, but he was really just the leader that we followed around the island. At each so we were kind of on our own. We had fun, and it was great to see these places, but I'd find an actual tour next time that helped me understand what was happening at each of these places.

This was a great tour of the island! While they weren't "dune buggies" but more VW Golf cars without doors, roof, or trunk, they were fun since you were open to the air. The ATV we took to the Jade Cenote were a fun side adventure. We had plenty of time to tour the Mayan ruins (pay a guide there!), and the tequila (not the nasty US mixed tuff) tasting was a great cap on the day.

Easily the best tour experience of our lives! My wife and I have toured with a lot of people in a lot of cool places, so expectations were high.

Then we met Victor. And climbed into a car converted into a kind of dune buggy, for one of the best days of our lives.

From the start, everything was friendly and well organized. We had an easy to find meeting place away from the crush of the cruise terminal. Victor explained everything to us so that we knew what our whole day would be.

Then we climbed in and took off to the ruins at San Gervaisio. I'm a history nerd, so seeing the ruins was fantastic. We learned a lot about the impact of the Maya on the island's history along the way.

From there, we darted down the Atlantic coast, watching waves of more blue shades than I've ever seen on the ocean explode against the cliffs. This brought us around to El Cedral, where we road ATVs to the cenote, dove in from the "sacrifice" cliff, learned a lot about true tequila, and generally loved the ancient little town.

Lunch at the beach was wonderful - be careful with the habanero sauce on your tacos. It gets hot, fast. Soon we were snorkeling in the crystalline waters.

Victor had us back in time for our cruise with minutes to spare, just how we wanted.

What we loved about the tour and Victor was everything. The curation was excellent. Timing, perfect. Experiences, well organized. Victor was friendly, sociable (but not forceful like a lot of tour guides), always had a bottle of water ready for us, kept us moving at a perfect pace to experience the entire day, and made sure we thoroughly enjoyed every experience.

This was our first visit to Cozumel. With just a day at port, it was a whirlwind. Normally that's exhausting because you don't feel like you really experienced the island. We know there's a whole lot more, but thanks to Victor, we feel like we experienced enough to have a beautiful day while also knowing that we will definitely return.

Make the time. Spend the money. Book this tour. Ask for Victor. You'll remember it forever.

We had a blast on this excursion and got to do so many things in a short amount of time. Mayan Ruins, Saw the island, Cenote, and Beach club snorkeling with lunch and ATV riding.

Our Tour Guide Victor was the best! Victor was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. He definitely made sure we had a great time. THANK YOU VICTOR!

This tour was so much fun! My Fiance and I arrived via cruise ship and did this as one of our excursions. We met our tour guide at Mega Superrmarket which is about 5 minutes from the cruise ship dock. We were briefed on the buggie and tour and off we went! We were the only ones on the tour which was nice, we just followed behind our guide in his buggie as we drove through the town to the Mayan Ruins. Your cost here pays for your entrance into the park. We walked around and got to look at all the Mayan Ruins in this village. They did charge us $3 to use our go-pro inside the park, just FYI. Once we finished walking around we met back up with our Guide near the little shopping area and headed back on the road. We then did some off roading which my Fiance loved. I would recommend bringing a bandanna or something to cover your face because we got so dusty and muddy and my eyes were burning! lol After that we drove through the town again and arrived at this beach club that had other people from our Cruise boat and seemed to be a very popular spot! We got snorkel gear (all included in this price) and went snorkeling! There were lots of fish and the water was beautiful. Some workers from the resort come in the water with food and take photos of you with the fish, if you would like to buy them after. Once we were done snorkeling we had lunch at the beach club, also included in this price. You have your choice of beef or chicken quesadilla or beef or chicken fajita. I had the quesadilla and my Fiance had the fajita, he said it was the best hes ever had!! You also have a drink of choice included with lunch as well. After that we drove back through the town and to the cruise ship dock. So much fun and got to see a lot of cozumel. I would totally recommend this tour! Includes a lot and is super fun!

I read all reviews before i bought tickets. I was really disappointed after the trip.
Cars we were given was not safe to drive. It needs to be mentioned that only stick Shift cars are available and sometimes gear may not be in workable condition (I couldn't find the 2nd gear). Break was not working uniformly and the car tend to push one side as the front wheels were wobbling up to half turn.
All the time i was we were worried thinking that we wan't get into accident. Tour guide was not well spoken and sounded rude while we complained about the car several times. I was in Cozumel for a day. I wish i could get back my day.
Sorry for such comments but I truly meant it. People need to know the bad side of this tour.

Now this was fun...my kids and I had a ball driving and riding the buggy through the water and mud. I wanted my daughter to drive but the buggy was a stick shift and she didn't know how to drive it so I did all the driving and intentionally got them all muddy and wet. It was GREAT! The tour at San Gervasio was an added bonus. We learned a lot and took great pics. We didn't get to do the snorkeling because it started storming and the placed closed. But the lunch was great. It was just us on the tour so it wasn't a large group...very personalized experience and it was great!

Overall, this was amazing and well above my expectations when I booked it. Wife and I were on a cruise and the cruise lines wants you to book through their excursions but this was the first one I booked before I realized that. We were greeted on time at an easy meeting location, the dune buggy is a standard so make sure you know how to drive. We saw the city of Cozumel, did some off road driving, tequila tour and even stopped for a little snorkeling. I would highly recommend this and would definitely do it again.

We were 4 people to the Cam Am Maverick, it was fully automatic and fun to drive. We really got to rip it up on the water covered areas and got plenty muddy. Nice break at a beautiful like resort and snacked on chips and salsa, Pool available for swimming. Another run to the beach were we would snorkel there is a large covered seaside area with bar and restaurant. Water was clear but not much for reef so you didn't have great marine life but we did see fish. A good way for beginners to learn. Guides were great and had a really fun time.

We went mid May during down season so we lucked out with a private tour. There was an automatic "car"/dune buggy for driving around the island and a stick shift for the off roading dune buggy. The first place we drove to was the Mayan ruins where the tour guide just paid for the park entrance and told us to read the plaques about each, you have 30 minutes. We needed an hour there not to feel rushed, only saw about half sadly. Wished we had had an actual tour guide telling us about it instead of just the tickets into the park, we could of done so on our own. Next we went to the dune buggy off roading location. I shyed away from driving it so the guide drove us around the off roading course. I asked to switch seats and he took us off the course to switch where there was minimal space. I messed up as it had been awhile since I've used a stick shift and stopped just shy of a tree and respected the fact the manager came out and said I couldn't drive it so we were cut short there instead of being offered to finish our time with the guide driving again. Then we were told next stop was a tequila tasting. No where on this was there any mention of a tequila tasting and we were hungry and needed food first. I asked if we could eat first and he said we either do it now or skip it so we skipped it. The lunch that was included was fajitas or quesadillas. Snorkeling was off the shore, it was a different experience from having a boat bring you to a location as I've never had to walk in flippers. The snorkeling was the only part that did not feel rushed.
