What people are saying about San Cristóbal de las Casas

Super excursion, admittedly the guide only speaks Spanish but honestly in all the excursions that we have been able to do in Mexico even the guides supposed to speak English did not speak really English so good. The view from the watchtowers is included! Everything was really top notch and well organized I recommend 100%.

We met the van at the plaza grande and then they took us to a bus for the trip. The driver was very friendly, professional and drove safely. It was good to go with a tour because a boat was ready for us when we arrived. It’s a beautiful trip down the river. Highly Recommended.

The excellent very attentive guide we liked the cannon very much and the captain also Very nice and we didn't bother to give him a tip, on the contrary they make an effort and as if not to tip him and veneer of venison well good prices

We are a bit late waiting for another group, but the activity itself is spectacular. Good explanations and very attentive to please the group.

It is magical to enter the canyon of the sinkhole, see the fauna and listen to the explanation is extremely interesting.
