The canyon is amazing and this tour provides the added bonus of being able to do a one way trip along it as well as go to some stunning viewpoints. The boat trip was very safe and well organised and the guide was very good, we even saw crocodiles on the river bank. The mini van is standard Mexican fare with minimal seat belts, average air con and lots of people squashed in but was fine'. Would recommend the trip as such an amazing place to visit.

A very pleasant trip in nature. Punctual pickup from hotel, guide with good English skills. The boats are clean and functional, as is the bus. Breathtaking views. Very safe driving for the driver on a mountainous road. We visited three viewpoints. The guide told a lot, he was patient and did not rush. I highly recommend it together with my 9-year-old son for whom the speedboat trip was an attraction in itself

The tour is definitely worth it. Cañón del Sumidero can be seen from all sides and Eduardo was a very good and patient tour guide. His background knowledge and English were excellent! We were also traveling in a very small group which made it that much more enjoyable. The value for money could be a bit better, but it is still an absolutely worthwhile tour.

great good , very friendly and informative, the tour was relaxed but with lots too see, view points, the boat tour, and magical town of chiapa de corso. Eduardo was an excellent guide, great english! thanks a lot

Pick up at the hotel, viewpoints at the watchtowers. The boat trip is really beautiful and a little free time in Chiapa de Corzo
