“Great day with Pato”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Our family of four enjoyed a great day over New Years with Pato. Not much to add to the overwhelmingly positive reviews on TA...Jay and his crew are professional, friendly, and deliver a product as advertised.

“Wonderful day with Hector”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

My family and I just returned from Mexico, I had organised a day's trip with Your Private Tour in advance directly with Jay which was really easy and very professional. I was given all the information we needed in advance, really helpful Hector arrived at 7.00am as arranged and from then on we had the most wonderful day. Hector is a fantastic tour guide, I don't really think that is a fitting title as by the end of the day our group of 6 all agreed he felt more like a friend. We visited the ruins at Tulum, zipped through the rainforest, visited a Mayan village and snorkelled in the cenote caves. Hector was there not only to answer questions but he also took part, By the end of the day we were all shattered but sorry it was over. Wonderful memories. If you only leave your hotel/resort once during you stay make it to go a one of Jay's tours its an experience of a lifetime.

“Perfect, customized adventure in Playa del Carmen”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Hands down the most personalized, fun way to see Playa del Carmen!!! Our family of four, including two college-aged students, arrived in Playa del Carmen on December 16, 2013. Our cruise ship arrived late in Cozumel, so we caught a ferry from downtown Cozumel to Playa del Carmen at 11am. We had to be back on the ship by 4pm, which left us less time than we had hoped for. Our tour guide, Rod, met us at the ferry terminal, and immediately made us feel at home. We were truly able to see why it was "Your Private Tour". Due to the arrival delay and unexpected traffic, we decided to skip out on the Tulum Ruins and snorkel with the turtles in their natural habitat right by a gorgeous beach and snorkel the cenote instead. We were so surprised when Jay, the owner of the business, met us at the first snorkeling spot to personally tell us that he would do everything he could to make sure we had an amazing time--and he definitely did so! Overall, my mom, who has never liked the water and has had bad snorkeling experiences in the past, had an absolute blast seeing all the turtles and fish in the clear waters of the ocean, cenote, and natural aquarium with Rod patiently guiding her the whole way. We will be back to Playa del Carmen as soon as possible, and this was by far the best excursion/adventure we have ever been on. Rod and Jay are such honest, hard-working people, and we can't thank them enough for making this trip to Mexico our best one yet!!

I never write reviews, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to comment on an absolutely 5 star experience. My sons (16 and 18) and I just took the basic tour with turtle swim and had a terrific time. Jay and his team were all knowledgeable, friendly, and honest. Instructions were provided before we arrived and during the tour to keep us comfortable and safe. The quiet restaurant on the beach was lovely. A truly exceptional, personalized experience!
