What people are saying about Chiapas

Really cool experience. Alonso was really approachable and was leading the tour in both English and Spanish really well. His stories were eye-opening and really useful. Some parts of the tour (greenhouse and posh tasting) were only in Spanish though. Definitely enjoyed this chilled tour.

Incredible tour, learnt so much about the customs of the indigenous people and their history. Alfonzo was an excellent tour guide, with a good sense of humor and able to switch between English and Spanish so easily.

A great excursion with a very good Alfonso guide. He was able to adapt to all the participants and did not hesitate to translate into several languages. His explanations were sharp, complete and mastered.

A great trip with a very good guide. He was extremely interactive and did not hesitate to translate into different languages to ensure incusivity. Would highly reccommend!
