Overall rating

4.7

A perfect day trip, just long enough for each activity. What is not in the description is that this includes the miradores (the lookout points) high above the canyon, so you get ALL of the national park on this tour: a stop at 2 of the miradores, 1 of which is the highest point overlooking the famous bend in the river to get a perspective of how high you really are, then a boat ride on the river to the town of Chiapa de Corzo with stops along the way to observe crocodiles, monkeys, birds, & other interesting features. You get to spend about 40-60 minutes in Chiapa de Corzo to walk around, get a bite to eat if you like, or visit the mercado. The pick-up & drop-off location is right in Centro Historico across from the 2-level gazebo. If you drive to the meeting spot, there's parking under the large church plaza for 10 pesos/hr. English was perfect & our guide, Rodrigo was friendly, fun & informative. Our driver, Paco, did a great job getting us there & back safely. Excellent tour!

The views of the canyon were spectacular! The boat ride was amazing. We saw a bunch of crocks and a friendly spider monkey up in the trees that seems to be a regular. Highly recommend the tour. The Spanish tour was just fine… just make sure you know when to get back in the van or at the meet up spot.

Great tour to see the canyon, the views from the boat are amazing and the trip was well organised. The boat tour is in Spanish so if you don’t speak the language you might miss some information about the area but it’s still worth it!

I had such an amazing day, Diana is so sweet ! She and Alex took care of everything! I will remember this day forever, beautiful places and the best private tour guide and driver, thank you both 🌷♥️🙏🏻

It is a very pleasant tour, it is worth it! The walk through the canyon is great. And the itinerary is completed in a timely manner. The guide very kind and friendly.
