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 had a wonderful experience in Cozumel. Gerry was our driver and he was super. Very informative as we were driving around Cozumel. We booked a tour at the chocolate factory (need to book yourself) and we also visited the Mayan ruins. The highlight of the trip was a tour around the island with a stop at a Mexican restaurant right on the water for lunch. The view was fabulous.

We were on a Carnival cruise and this was our favorite activity from all our ports of call. A special bonus was Gerry serenading us.

If you are considering this tour, then I urge you to book it - we had a fantastic time and our driver Alberto was wonderful. He arrived at the meeting point early, was smartly dressed, spoke perfect English and was a really nice friendly guy.
As people have said before, this is no ordinary package style tour - you get a really personal service from the office asking you about the things you want to see, the driver making his own informed suggestions and constantly providing historical content, local knowlege and his own personal take on a beautiful island.
Alberto took us to some interesting historical sites, he showed us what he thought was the nicest beach on Cozumel and he was right - it was wonderful, and he dropped us off in perfect time right by our cruise.
We would definitely do this tour again and hopefully would get Alberto again as he was a brilliant guide. We strongly recomend this tour - it is great value for money.

If you are tired of run of the mill tours.....then this is a great alternative for you. I hope you are lucky enough to get Alberto as your driver. What a lovely young man who was more than willing to take us wherever we wanted to go (the grocery store, the chocolate factory, secluded beaches).
Eduardo is running a classy operation with nice air-conditioned vans and drivers who are very conscious of your safety as well as showing you a good time. There was plenty of time for photographs, snacks, and THE BEST CEVICHE I have ever eaten in my life on the East side of the island. Alberto was more than happy to stay with us for an additional couple of hours for a minimal cost. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company!

We had previously been to Cozumel and had taken a tour of the Island. We really enjoyed seeing the east side of the island, and wanted to see it at our own pace. Leo was assigned as our driver, and he met us at the ferry pier, sign in hand, welcoming us to Cozumel. We set out for the east side of the Island where we enjoyed combing the beaches for sea glass, a few drinks at Coconuts and Rastas, and just enjoyed stopping where we wanted, taking in the view, ocean and the beaches. Leo was a great guide, and answered all of our questions and was able to point out many other interesting places and facts about Cozumel. Leo even helped us comb the beaches for sea glass, which I think was a first for him! It was a great day and a safe way to enjoy the Island of Cozumel! Thank you Leo! Kent and Robyn

This was our 4th trip to Cozumel and we really were looking for something different to do. A friend who had just returned from Cozumel told us about Trip Advisor's Hire a Taxi for the Day Service and I am so glad that we choose to do just that. Leo was our driver and he was the most courteous and informative guide we could have had. We had 2 requests, one was for Mexican vanilla and the other was to see a part of Cozumel that most tourists don't think about seeing. Leo sure did deliver on both requests. We started at a local grocery store where I got vanilla for less than 1/2 of what they were selling it for on the pier. Leo took us to the other side of the island where we saw some of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches I have ever seen. He stopped at Mayan Ruins, a lighthouse and museum, and answered every question we asked. He was most definetely not just a taxi driver, but a true tour guide for us. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend with him, due to a change in our ship's departure time. I know we will be back to Cozumel in the near future and will be hiring a taxi for the day again, and hopefully will get Leo as our driver.
