Oscar our guide was good. The equipment is not well maintained. Our buggy ran fine as long as you didn't need reverse. Bare wires were used to start and stop the buggy. It is an extremely jarring ride, maybe that is what you want. other people in our group could not drive a stick shift and stalled their buggy about... More

We booked this excursion well in advance with Norwegian Cruises. It sounded great. We packed extra clothes and all the stuff we'd need to have fun in the mud just for this trip. Upon arriving at the pick-up location on the dock, we were informed the X-Rails were not available to to "mechanical problems" and we would be put on... More

We were really excited about this tour but it proved to be a bit of a dud. We were told to cab to the beach resort (where we waited for 1/2 hour), then picked up and driven to the tour site (where we waited for 1 hour), before we even started the excursion. Then, once we were set up and... More

They charge you for EVERYTHING! Take bug spray, closed in water shoes, bandana and spare clothes to save money. They highly discouraged you to take your phone or camera so they can charge you $90 for their photo package!! Many people put their phones in a small bag and held it under their clothes. They were able to take photos... More

Oh my gosh. This was so much fun. When we arrived at the site to start the tour my grandson was so excited. After a brief use of the ATX's we bought bandana's and then were given helmets to wear. We got strapped in and the engines were running and off we went. Over rocks, around rocks, in chuck holes,... More

Don't get me wrong, the guide and people here were fabulous! But this ride was the roughest I ever had! It was so bad my husband got a migrane and spent 15 min getting sick in the jungle! Then I had to drive back because he couldn't, and I didn't know that driving a vehicle without power steering could almost... More

Really enjoyed taking the hubby on this excursion during our time on land from a cruise! He had a blast driving and everyone was super nice. The jade caverns water was cold, but we got to go to another portion of the cave rarely visited since our group was so small. On the way back we saw another group had... More

We have taken this tour twice,once with my family(4 of us), and then again with my sisters family(8 of us). We learned from our first trip to bring bandannas, bug spray, and a change of clothes. Saved us $ from having to purchase them on the second trip. There were some minor equipment issues but nothing that wasn't repaired pretty... More

Cozumel: Booked this through Shore Excursioneer online. Used Paypal. They ask for a deposit and you pay the balance when you get there. You get an email with the details and balance to bring with you. Remember to bring your license. Was on Royal Caribbean. Came into International Pier. You go out front to the taxis take a 5 min...

The buggies broke down every 5-10 minutes. We had to swap out the buggy twice. Once it died and another time it lost power. At one point 3 of the 10 buggies were broke down at the same time. The "guides" did a great job trying to repair them. I don't blame them as they good the best they could... More
