“Awesome Tours with First Class Tour Guide!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Our family just returned from a Fantastic vacation to the region, Louis was a huge part of the Fantastic. We took two tours with Louis. The first to Ixtapa Island for snorkeling and feasting on local cuisine (included in the tour). He and his people saw to it that we were appropriately taken care of while on the Island and guided us around the Island to the other beaches, a fantastic experience indeed. A couple days later we took a second tour with Louis to the outline countryside of Ixtapa/ Zihautanejo. Experiencing that part of the region was a real treat. We visited a coconut plantation, went to watch a "local" make clay roof tiles by hand, dug from the clay on his property, toured a museum of local history, and then on to the beach where the movie Shawshank Redemption was filmed for a very nice lunch. Louis is First Class, very insightful and witty. No hassles whatsoever, and I might add, his van is new, spacious and air conditioned. We are looking forward to a return trip.

“Best Tour Guide EVER!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Our multigenerational family took an all day country tour March 13, 2014 with Luis and absolutely loved it! We toured parts of Zihua, visited a coconut plantation, stopped at a wonderful museum and enjoyed a cool drink at the local watering hole, visited amazing ruins, had a delicious lunch at a beachfront restaurant and took a boat cruise on the lagoon. It was a fantastic day! Luis is very entertaining and shares his love of the region by teaching us so much. Our extended family has toured with Luis for years and we all highly recommend him! Luis is the best! You can find Luis on the beach in the late afternoon or early evening or check out his website www.ixtapatoursluis.com

“Great tour guide to see the "REAL" Guerrero Mexico”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Luis was very professional and really showed us so much of this area! Coconut plantations, the beach where Shawshank Redemption ended! A wonderful fishing village. Mango orchards, eucalyptus plants. A tile factory. Luis was so knowledgeable and was very humorous! He will travel up and dozen the Ixtapa beach most days. His vehicle was a brand new small bus that held 15 people and he is a very safe driver!

“Awesome tour to Ixtapa island with Luis”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Luis is awesome! We met Luis on the beach outside our hotel, where we booked the Ixtapa tour and the sunset cruise with him. Luis is the one who took us to Ixtapa island, he picked us up in his van and drove us out to the boat. We were the only two that he took so we got a private tour for a really good price. He speaks great english and was super knowledgable about the area, any questions that we had, he was able to answer right away. He took us over to Ixtapa island and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for snorkelling. On the way back, he took us to see the crocodiles and iguanas, which was really cool. In all, it was an awesome day with Luis.
We also booked the sunset cruise with Luis, which was also an amazing time, the people on the boat were fun and filled with enthusiasm. I highly recommend Luis and the next time I'm in Ixtapa, I will definitely book my tours with him.

“Ixtapa Island & Combo Tour”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

We read about Luis before we left and we were not disappointed. We went on the ixtapa Island tour and would never have guessed that we would snorkle. He made it so easy that anyone can do it. Life jackets, and a boogie board made it possible for people who didn't even feel comfortable swimming to experience snorkeling. The perfect beginner experience. Anyone who knew how, could go on their own. He pulled us on a boggie board and we saw amazing fish, shells, coral and he would point things out to us. Wonderful. He speaks wonderful english and has a wealth of knowledge on every place we went and what we saw.
