What fun! We were greeted at our hotel by a punctual, friendly guide named Javier. We told jokes and laughed along the drive to the peir. The Bonanza is a wonderful way to see the many beautiful sites of Acapulco. The crew would alternate from narration in English & Spanish for about ten minutes, then twenty minutes of live music. The waters were calm and there was plenty of dancing. My only complaint would be the lack of cerveza choice. There is only one choice and it isn’t great. But there are other options, so it wouldn’t justify a bad review. After the cruise, Javier welcomed us at the pier with a warm smile and a wave. He even turned up the music for us in his van as the women in my group requested. I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was punctual, friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately due to Covid, we had to skip the Fort. But I don’t think any of my group noticed. It was a great experience and a wonderful time was had by all. Highly recommend!!

Great day out with Jesus, a lovely mature man that has lived and breathes Acapulco. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Acapulco and use Get Your Guide. It's so much better having a personalized tour

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.

Very romantic experience! ❤️ Knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.
