Dennis was a very good driver/guide. He is very professional and very knowledgeable. He's very chill and flexible with timing on each stop at the same time did not miss anything that was on the itinerary. We enjoyed the whole day and the activities. We hit so many spots in 6 hours. Would definitely recommend the tour to other people.

Our driver was waiting for us when we arrived and offered us cold bottled water as soon as we got in the car! Great service and nice to arrive at the airport and not have to worry about transportation!

very nice experience, the guides were attentive at all times and gave you very good instructions, everything was very pleasant and perfect.

We had a wonderful time with Casey who was very patient with our level of experience kayaking/snorkeling. A must do in Cabo!
