What people are saying about Acapulco

We were picked up at our hotel by our guides, Rudy and Diego, who took us to each activity. Along the way, we learned about the history and people. We started with horseback riding on a secluded beach, which was wonderful. Then we laid in hammocks while drinking coconut water (ate the coconut meat with lemon - delicious!). We went to a turtle sanctuary and released a baby turtle to the sea. The highlight was the zip line - 72 mph superman stye from one mountain, across the bay to another. Absolutely fantastic! We were picked up and returned to the hotel. What a wonderful day!

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.

We liked it a lot, the zip line is incredible, everything was excellent and the attention and explanation of the guides was very good, we would definitely return to another tour on our next trip
