Adan did an awesome job showing us the different aspects, localities, etc of Acapulco. Did the baby turtle release which was great and also saw the cliff divers! Would definitely recommend Tours by Van and Rudy and Adan!

I wanted to know the cost of a Taxco one day tour with Rudy. What would this include? We are coming in early March. I'm trying to book early with him. Is there an email address for him or a phone number?

My wife Louise and I arrive on the Oceania – Regatta per below schedule. Louise uses a portable wheel chair so we typically hire a private guide with car so we can have some flexibility in the schedule. We would like your suggestions on a guide and itinerary. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Wed 30-Dec Acapulco, Mexico 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM 913-226-3404

A private driver is the best option for airport transfers in Acapulco, as a taxi will cost about the same amount for a less comfortable ride. At this time there is no bus or other public options available from the airport... More
