Great Island Tour
, Jan 2021
Our tour guide was great telling us all about the special places we would see on the island and wildlife living there.. Our guide spoke very good English, since our Spanish was very limited. Lunch provided on the tour was fantastic and menu offered additional choices we could purchase. Recommend this tour for future travelers to Ixtapa.
A well organized,restful day.

Every aspect of this trip was as advertised.It was well priced and we paid for the snorkeling gear which include our own guide. The lunch was very good and the service excellent. Our guide took very good care of us and stayed and watched our personal items while we were in the water.
Watching the pelicans feed.

What a great day! Picked up at our hotel and then off to the island for a delicious lunch and snorkeling at two different spots on the island. Waters very warm and calm. Saw loads of fish. The pelicans put on a big show feeding as we were leaving. Our wonderful guide Guillermo was very friendly and gave us lots of info. on the area. Fun tour!
A wonderful well paced tour

One of the better tours we have had. We never felt hurried nor that it was lagging. The included meal was also great. Louie has excellent English and was most pleasant.

The people that picked us up were courteous and prompt. However that was as far as it goes. They took us to the island and then said they would be at the table so we wouldnt have to worry about our belongings and purses however, when we got there the gut wasnt to be seen until the boat came back for us. The food was absolutely great, and the servers attentive. The fish and shrimp were caught daily and the chicken tender. Snorkeling was great. You really didnt need gear as the brightly colored fish came right in to ankle deep water. And I am not talking about one or two inch fish,but five or more inches. One side of the island had sandy beaches and the othe had rocky and reefs so water shoes on that side should be a must. Over all had a fantastic day.
