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.

We got to the dock and Leo was waiting for us.. he was wonderful and we had a great time. We didn't take all of the tours that you provide, we did go to Chen Rio for most of the day and then met some friends that live in Cozumel.. They then told us about a bar close to port and we were gonna let Leo go. But, one of our friends slipped and hit his head at chen rio and Leo took suck good care of him that this friend wanted to keep him for our trip back to the ship. So that made Leo and extra hour of money for just waiting on us. Thanks again and will be using your services again

WOW!! We have been to Cozumel six times, now seven, and we have never ventured to the other side of the island!!! Because of recommendations from fellow Trip Advisors we decided to Hire a Driver for a Day - we are thrilled we did!! Not only did we get to see a part of the island we had never discovered but the driver became our fast friend!! He took us first to learn about the Mayans just down from our pier, then over to Senor Iguana's which was recommended by a friend, and then off to Coconuts!!!! Now this place is fun! We then went to see the blow holes, the turtles, and then just the countryside. There were three of us and the minivan was so clean and comfortable. Cantaro made it so fun for us that we are going back in three weeks and hiring him again!! If you have been to Cozumel before but never had a chance to get to the other side of the island this is the way to go!!!

We love going to the wild side of the island but we are always careful to not drink and drive. The last time we did this we hired a driver and a van full went over to the wildside. we hit every place alonge the road had a great time and had drinks and food without having to leave anyone out as our dd was our drivers. best 20 buck per person we have ever spend... would highly recommend doing the wild side tour this way. Safe and enjoyable.

We hired a driver through this company and were assigned Gerry, who turned out to be great. He was friendly and we felt very safe with him behind the wheel. We had reservations for the chocolate factory at 1, but felt that was cutting it a little close for the boat departure and he called and got us moved up to 11, then arranged the day in a very nice flow for us. I wasn't feeling fantastic and would have loved to take advantage of his recommendations for a spot to have lunch. I'm sure it would have been great. The only downside, which really isn't the companie's fault at all, just our lack of education, was that the "tequila factory" on the tour was really more of a restaurant and gift shop with a museum type of display about how tequila is made and some plants grown just "for show". Apparently the type of agave that tequila comes from doens't grow well on this side of Mexico, so their acutal factor is on the other side of the country, not in Cozumal. Had we realized that, we probably would have devoted more of our day to other things. The Chocolate Factory tour is also very small, but run by a nice family and very entertaining. Definitly pick up some of their product - it's excellent. The island drive was great and I feel like we really got a good flavor for what the area is like - and again, we could not have been more pleased with Gerry. I felt like this was definitely worth the price.

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!
