Christina is a knowledgeable and congenial guide. In addition, she is an excellent driver with a nice, comfortable car. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her on our recent trip to Celestun.

Dawn Montoya

United States

Tour: #652109, Private Tour to Uxmal and lunch at beautiful Hacienda, Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico    view tour
Date: Jan 23/20

Christina was on time, but not aware in Progresso only certain vehicles can enter port-we had to take taxi to meet. Visit to Uxmal was great. We had fun at Chocolate Museum. Lunch was wonderful at Hacienda she selected. What a beautiful place. Unfortunately, time was limited returning to cruise ship. Traffic w road construction delayed us further. We would have missed boat except for phone calls made to travel agent and ship to us and Christina taking extraordinary measures to get us into port area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dawn, I really enjoyed the experience with you and the girls! I wish you stayed longer and enjoyed the area a bit more. I will definitely use this experience to be more accurate with timing to provide better and more comfortable shore excursions. Best regards! Cristina.

Christina was pleasant, knowledgeable and really fun and interesting to hang out with. She was personable and passionate about Merida and the other historic places she took us. This was our first visit and we loved learning about the Yucatan culture and history. We will request Christina for our next visit and recommend her to others. She was a really good driver!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Casey! it was great to share a few days with you and the family! Thanks for always being open to suggestions but overall thanks for enjoying life!! Wish you and all the best and looking forward to seeing you again.

Tour: 2 Day Private tour around Yucatán, Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico
Date: Jan 2/20

Cristina did a two day custom tour, first day craft shops (Jose's store was great), an ice cream shop, crystal stores and tour in carriage. The second day we went to a very magical place, to a cenote amid the mashes that is the "heart" of the ecosystem. We first traveled by sea, then canoed in the marshes and lastly up the narrow stream to the "heart". A sporty & deeply spiritual experience. Cristina is very flexible and helpful (I changed plans 3 times) and she arranged 2 shamans for me:). Well done!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and your family for great disposition and adventurous spirit! Sending best vibes!!

Tour: #506328, Cenotes half day tour, Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico    view tour
Date: Apr 7/19

Cristina was awesome! My friend and I only had a half day window to visit the cenotes. I contacted Cristina and she responded very quickly. She picked us up from the ADO CAME bus station and drove us to grab lunch and then to a cenote that was about an hour away. She taught us all about Mexico along the ride. Her English is fantastic! The cenote she chose was beautiful and not too crowded. I would definitely book her again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Zoe for being open to try new things and for enjoying life! Thanks also for sharing your experiences. Hope you have a safe trip back home. Best vibes!

Tour: 3 Day Adventure around the Yucatán, Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico
Date: Mar 26/19

Our trip would not have been half as special without our fabulous guide! She had a ton of knowledge and enthusiasm about the area and took us to the most visited places as well as places "off the beaten track". She was great to talk to, safety conscious, very organized, always on time and sensitive to our needs. We would do this again in a heartbeat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sam to you and your wonderful family for being great travelers and being open to try new things and suggestions. Thanks for sharing so many great stories and experiences! Best vibes!

Cristina is new and constantly needed to be directed by google. she texted while driving and twice almost caused accidents. after being told off she stopped. she displayed an attitude of "couldn't care less" at all times despite our enthusiasm. we asked for 5 touristic point, she confirmed 4 by email saying that she is flexible but at the end she charged extra. Be warned: Cristina considers a full day to be just 5 hours!!! other guides in Mexico do 9-10 hour days. She is a farmhand and shared her knowledg
