Amazing morning from the greeting, short tour and history of the port area to the farewell drop-off. Tomas is proud of his heritage and knowledgable about the area. Our boat was comfortable and the snorkel areas were uncrowded, lots of fish and marine life. Tomas had personal knowledge of and charts showing the different fish we could see. He had an underwater camera and captured great photos and sent them to us. We even caught a fish for lunch. Tomas is most accommodating and personal.

Tomas is simply amazing! We had so much fun with him. He managed our well travelled group of 8 with care and consideration. He actually knew all our names within 5 minutes of meeting us! Tomas showed us the extraordinary beauty of Santa Cruz, Huatulco and Crucecita. The information he gave during our tour was comprehensive and detailed. He readily answered all our questions and ensured that our needs were met. Tomas is most definitely an asset to the business of tourism. Thank you Tomas!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mary, I very much appreciate a nice note from my tourists, it assures me that I made a lasting memory for them(which is my goal), but also, for me, it tells me I am doing my job the way I should be. I strive to do my best on all tours, and I hope that the love I have for Mexico, and all she has to offer shows in how I conduct my tours. If you want to come back to see more, then that is the biggest compliment anybody can give me. Please thank the others in the group for the kind words. Sincerely Tom

Excellent tour. Tomas was very professional and we enjoyed everything we did from there chocolate factory to the wildlife park but our favorite thing was the turtle release. We had no idea what to expect and we were very lucky to get to release about 300 baby turtles. They were hatching while we were on the beach and it was an experience of a lifetime. We release this dozen;t happen everyday but glad it happened when we were there. Tomas was very professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words. I am so happy you enjoyed your tour. The turtle release is one of my favorite tours share with the tourists. It’s such a wonderful experience. It never gets old, not even for me! I’m happy to hear it was an experience of a lifetime. The chocolate factory and the wildlife park are always a wonderful addition also. Hope to see you back again soon. There is so much more to see here. Thank you again, Tomas V

Tomas was excellent from beginning to end! He was informative, respectful and fun to be with. He completely went with the flow with what we wanted to do. One of the best guides we've ever had in Mexico or any where else!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Leslie Thank you very much for your wonderful review. My goal has always been to make sure the tourist gets to see what they came to Mexico to see. I strive to personalize each tour to make sure all the needs of my tourists are met. When I get a great review like this, it tells me that I met your expectations, but more than that, is that I made your trip a “a trip to remember”. Come back soon, I have so much more to show you! Sincerely, Tomas V

We had an amazing day with Tomas V, everything about the tour was perfect! Tomas is a very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient guide and his English is excellent. Our experience releasing the sea turtles in Huatulco was a highlight of our whole trip to Central America. Tomas explained everything so well and he was very happy to answer any questions we had throughout the day. At no point did we feel rushed when he took us to the various places of interest. We highly recommend Tomas for your tour!

Tomas was the perfect guide for Huatulco! We were impressed with his knowledge of the area's history and culture, fluent English, and driving skill. He introduced us to fascinating tidbits of the area's food and culture as he guided us attentively through the colorful market. Stories he shared about his family deepened our insights into his culture. Our tour ended with a visit to his family's shop filled with regional artisanal products, where he had worked as a weaver in his youth. Great day!

Tomas was an awesome guide for our group of 8 people. Very informative and educational regarding Oaxacan history, as well as the specific sites we visited. We did a tour of Monte Alban and some wood-carving Alebrijes. Responsive with communication, timely, and accommodating to our needs. We had a perfect day! I would definitely use Tomas' services again should I return to the Oaxacan area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much ELLIOTT REESE, for the great review! Reviews like this help people like me to gain recognition and it also attracts new people for me to show around. I love showing people like you all our area has to offer. It makes me happy to know I touched you enough to write a great review. I hope if you are ever in our area again, you will remember me, or send someone my way should you know anyone coming to Oaxaca. Thank you again, Sincerely, Tomas Vicente
