More Cruisers, More Happy Comments

Kathy and her group also visited the cenotes when Carnival stopped at Progreso last week. Here's what she has to say:


"We had a great time on our trip! Gabriel did a great job and went beyond our expectations on showing us the local sites. He was full of interesting Mayan history. 

This excursion was the highlight of our cruise. 

The cenotes were too beautiful to describe and the food at the local restaurant was great. We the loved the ride on the carts with horse. 

We felt totally safe at all times. 

We will definitely book another trip with you the next time we are in the area. I will send some pictures after I finish unpacking. Thanks again for all your help and making our day in Progreso one we won't forget."

Happy Guest Comments - Cenotes!

Kathy and her group arrived on the Carnival cruise ship at Progreso and headed out on their own private cenote tour. Here is what she had to say:

Grace and her group visited the Yucatan on a recent Carnival cruise that stopped in Progreso - they visited some Mayan ruins and a cenote and had this to say about their experience:

"Hola!

Wow, that tour was absolutely amazing! I can't thank you enough for setting up such a wonderful day for my friends and me. David was so knowledgeable; he answered every one of our questions about the Yucatan ranging from Natural History to Politics, and ya, he knows a LOT about birds :D And Emanuel was so kind and helpful. He was laughing and smiling the whole day. 

We thought the hour and a half drive out to Uxmal would be boring but David kept us well entertained! He even stopped in a market place to show us some of the local fresh fruit and then took us to a handcraft store to buy the most beautiful souvenirs! And Uxmal itself was way more interesting than we had anticipated! We could tell that David really loved the Maya and he knew so much about their culture that it was easy to imagine what life was like for them. Then after a long walk in the hot sun, Emanuel brought out cold towels to help us cool off! It was so refreshing; such a nice touch. 

David took us to lunch at a gorgeous Hacienda (I can't remember the name of if; if you get the chance, could you ask him what it was and remind me?) and we had the best pulled pork I have ever tasted. When I asked David what was in the sauce, the staff brought out a plate with all of the separate ingredients so I could see how it was made. After lunch we went to a breath taking cenote! I would never have imagined it would be that beautiful! And then to see Emanuel bringing down a bottle of wine for us; it was absolutely wonderful. 

The Yucatan has a special place in my heart now :) I really hope to make it back in the near future, and when I do, you'll be hearing from me! Please tell David and Emanuel thank you from all of us and I hope everything goes well for all of you!
Peace and Blessings,

~Grace "

Maritza and her husband took a private tour with an emphasis on food, culture and architecture. Here is what she had to say:

"Hello!

It was amazing - exceeded our expectations.  David is a walking encyclopedia.  We were so impressed.  Both David and Gonzalo were gracious and hospitable. David was so intuitive in capturing our interests; architecture and culinary arts and culture. Our only wish is that we had more time. We will just have to come back!

Please extend our warm regards to both of them.
I will be entering tomorrow my trip details on Trip Advisor and will definitely be describing our experience.

Thanks!

Maritza"

Lori and her family visited Mayapan and a secret cenote on their recent cruise into Progreso. Here is what they had to say:

"
Our Progreso stop made our trip! I am so thankful I came across your name while searching online. As soon as our shuttle pulled into the bus stop we saw Jorge standing there with my name, off we went in the van. The couple we were traveling with can't stop talking about how much fun we had. My kids all unanimously agree that the cenotes were their favorite thing about the entire cruise. Yes my 13 yr old flipped and dove off the platform and also jumped from the highest point(the very top) My 9 yr daughter even jumped. They had a blast! We loved the Mayapan ruins, and the kids crawled to the top. If we are......I mean WHEN we are in your area again we will definitely be booking something with you! I am ready to go NOW but the hubby said we had to wait awhile!
I loved passing by the school houses in the small village, I am a school teacher and would love to visit one next time. Is this a possibility?
Tell Jorge thx for putting up with us! Best vacation ever thanks to you guys! "
