What people are saying about Acapulco

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 24 reviews

What fun! We were greeted at our hotel by a punctual, friendly guide named Javier. We told jokes and laughed along the drive to the peir. The Bonanza is a wonderful way to see the many beautiful sites of Acapulco. The crew would alternate from narration in English & Spanish for about ten minutes, then twenty minutes of live music. The waters were calm and there was plenty of dancing. My only complaint would be the lack of cerveza choice. There is only one choice and it isn’t great. But there are other options, so it wouldn’t justify a bad review. After the cruise, Javier welcomed us at the pier with a warm smile and a wave. He even turned up the music for us in his van as the women in my group requested. I highly recommend this tour!

We arrived in Acapulco on a cruise and were met just outside the port gate by Rudy. He introduced us to our guide and made the experience very easy with no time wasted. Mario (our guide) was very knowledgeable and took us to all of the area highlights, giving us options along the way for a more personal/customized tour. Throughout our time together, Mario offered to take photos of us and the sights we visited, and we received an email later that day with all of the photos he had taken, plus a bonus video montage. Thanks for showing us around and for the photo memories.

We had a great time. The views were great and the tour guide spoke English and Spanish.

It was very cool experience, they explain everything during the tour.

great experience ! so fun ! highly recommend ! open bar!
