Our driver was fantastic Romeo.he drove a van that belonged to Rudy. It kept rolling after he had turned the car off. Also when driving along it had an awful oil smell, very strong. This made me question the safety of it. Needing the air conditioner with windows up was much worse than having them down as the fresh air... More

Can't say enough great things about Rudy and his Tour by Van company. First, Rudy was extremely responsive, professional and punctual for all of our needs (we ended up using him for transportation again after the tour). He showed up for our tour right on time, with his A/C van. It was just our family of five on the tour... More

Rudy does personally take care of you, even if he is not your driver. Romero, our driver, had our desires uppermost in his mind at all times. So polite and thoughtful. Acapulco is so beautiful, even though our travel agent was reluctant for us to go ashore. There was a huge presence of police visible everywhere, which can be frightening... More

Rudy provided all of the pre-planning info in advance including our cruise ship meeting location. He met us, my husband and I, just a few steps from the ship on time with a sign with our name. We drove a while before our first stop to learn more about a turtle release program. Here my husband and I were able... More

This was our second tour with Rudy and Roger. Like our first tour with them, well worth it. Very educational and entertaining. Rudy and Roger speak fluent Spanish and English. For those traveling from the US. they are very knowledgeable about current and past US events and often do comparisons between Mexico and the US which we found very interesting.... More

Very satisfied with the service. Our flight was delayed by 13 hours because we missed the connection in Mexico City but Rudy immediately responded to my emails about the changes in our arrival. He had sent the driver twice to pick up.

We received great personalized service, with a day tour in Acapulco that was customized to our interests by Rudy. The ride, the guidance and the tour stops were all fun and smooth.

We had an excellent tour of Acapulco with Baldo as our guide. Rudy was very responsive to emails and checked in with us on our tour to make sure we were happy. Baldo was a great guide with lots of information about the area. We enjoyed releasing the baby turtles at the sanctuary, seeing the cliff divers, visiting the peace... More
