The experience was incredible, and wouldn’t have been as enjoyable if it weren’t for the fantastic tour guides (A man named José Mario and his wife). The Fort of San Diego featured beautiful architecture and fascinating artifacts that were rich with culture and history. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the history of not only the fort, but Mexico too. They also took us through the main plaza in Acapulco, stopping along the way for refreshing and freshly squeezed juice. Our last stop was La Quebrada. Here, we were able to witness the brave cliff divers dive from soaring heights as they acrobatically flipped through the air and gracefully landed in the crystal clear turquoise water. Every step along the way, the two tour guides, a husband and wife, were always ready to lend a helping hand, whether by offering water or providing information on the city. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which was only enhanced by the gracious tour guides.

Our guide Rudy was excellent! He exceeded our expectations by far! I can’t believe the personalized your we got. Front row table at La Perla with a great view and delicious food. Tooootally worth the tour. I’m not a tour person but would highly recommend this. You can’t get that kind of experience on your own. We learned so much about the area and Rudy is so cheerful and went above and beyond.

The tour/driver guides were the best and entertained us on the drive to and from the dive show. The dive show was amazing and the dinner was the best of our trip. This is a must do for Acapulco.

Was an amazing show, really enjoyed our time watching the divers.

The exceptional guide the beautiful and interesting tour I loved
