Owner description: Get away from the crowds and enjoy the Island in a private taxi tour! During 3, 4, 5 or more hours (the duration of the tour is up to you), visit only the places YOU want to see with one of our licenced and very reliable bilingual drivers. You can choose from our 5 different types of vehicles according to your needs: a car for up to 4 passengers, a van for up to 9 passengers, a van for 10 passengers or a larger van for up to 14 passengers. If you are not familiar with the Island, we can suggest some of the most popular sites to visit. Because it is a private tour, if you like one site better than others, you can stay there as long as you want.

This was my 9th Cruise visit to Cozumel and I wanted to see the "other" side of the island. There were NINE ladies in the van with Gerry as our driver. The reservation process and information received was extremely helpful and everything went just as planned. Gerry was meeting us, in a yellow cap, with a sign with my name on it, as we had pre-arranged. We loaded into the van and we were off on our adventure. I had several stops planned. Our first was the Tequila factory and we had such fun there we had to rearrange our stops a bit because we ran out of time! Gerry was most gracious and we all sang along to Jimmy Buffet as we rode and stopped for pictures. We ended our day at Playa Palancar and Gerry assisted us with getting the best spot on the beach and a hour of free snorkeling equipment. He had us back to the ship right on time.
What a lovely man and what a lovely day in Cozumel. I recommend it highly for those that want to get off the beaten path with absolutely no stress or worries!

We hired a driver on October 16, 2012, after arriving on the Carnival Legend. Our driver was Gerry and we were told to find the man in the yellow hat. My daughter who is 4 thought that was the best thing ever, being a Curious George fan. We did not really have a plan, Gerry was patient, friendly and suggested a couple of different options after asking us what we liked and what we wanted to do. It was very relaxing and educational, we learned things about Mexico and Cozumel that we never knew. Gerry was a safe and confident driver and we never worried about his driving ability or our safety. We were able to spend time at each stop as we wanted and never felt rushed, unlike the cruise tours. Our only regret is not packing our swim gear. Gerry is also a great photographer, taking some great pictures for us. We LOVED this tour and would do it again.

4 ladies,one great driver. Leo was very informative of the history of Cozumel. Having been in Cozumel six months ago, I knew what I wanted to see again but he was able to suggest a few more stops along the way. My only regret is we didn't hire him for more time!! Thanks again for the great hospitality while visiting Cozumel.

Leo was amazing. He was there waiting for us when our ship docked, and took us everywhere we wanted to go and had some great suggestions too. He was really friendly, and we never felt rushed or obligated to do anything. If you are looking for a great way to see Cozumel and get an insider's tour - this is the only way to go!

A group of 9 Royal Carribbean cruisers hired this company and had Leo for a full day of touring Cozumel. He met us at the designated place and we drove around in an air-conditioned van that was clean and comfortable. His English was excellent and as a "local", he kew the island quite well. We visited the ruins, a local market where we were able to sample a fruit that was delicious but so ugly we never would have tried it on our own. We drove along the sea and had a great lunch with a picture perfect setting, and we drove through town central as well as saw some local neighborhoods. Went to the lighthouse and really got a feel for Cozumel in just 7 hours. Per person the price was much less than the cruise tours and much more inclusive-he was game for anything we wanted to see. Well deserved a tip and a recommendation!!
