We arrived in Acapulco on a cruise and were met just outside the port gate by Rudy. He introduced us to our guide and made the experience very easy with no time wasted. Mario (our guide) was very knowledgeable and took us to all of the area highlights, giving us options along the way for a more personal/customized tour. Throughout our time together, Mario offered to take photos of us and the sights we visited, and we received an email later that day with all of the photos he had taken, plus a bonus video montage. Thanks for showing us around and for the photo memories.
