I recently went on two tours with this tour agency in Puerto Escondido and had an amazing time! First, I went on a dolphin watching tour and saw so many playful dolphins swimming in the waves. It was an unforgettable experience and I felt so lucky to be able to witness these majestic creatures up close.Next, I went on a whale watching tour and was blown away by the size and beauty of the whales. We even got to see a mother and her calf swimming together! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information about the whales and their behavior.Overall, I highly recommend this tour agency for anyone visiting Puerto Escondido. The tours are well-organized and the guides are friendly and professional. Plus, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking! I can't wait to come back and take another tour with them.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars all the way!

Amazing tour and guide to ensure everything goes smoothly! Plus he is multi lingual and speaks French, English and Spanish. Everything was great from pickup to drop off and the beautiful horse back riding experience on the beach. We were able to catch sunset and ride back in the twilight and under the stars. Don’t miss the opportunity! Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

We were in such good luck! We had a tour agency not show up and we found this company last minute. Everything about the tour was perfect. We did the Horse back riding with Hot Spring. Arrived on time, cold water in car, friendly guide and a perfect riding time. This was a highlight of our trip and would not hesitate to recommend this tour company. Friendly and professional and you can see he had a great relationship with the locals who care for the horses.

Pierre was AMAZING, kind and sincere. He was so welcoming and made my family and I all feel like long lost friends. The tour was definitely the best experience of my life. I've never seen so much beauty in one place. My parents are in their 50s and they absolutely loved it. The level of activity isn't super high, so it's suitable for older folks as well. I'd also like to mention Nacho, the owner of the horses, he was the sweetest and kindest soul, it was like talking to an uncle. He's very knowledgeable and his beautiful horses (Coral, Rebelde, Titanic and Canelo) are so well trained and calm, and they listen to his voice at his command. We never felt scared of them, and they're very used to people. I'm definitely telling all my friends to book a your with Pierre and Nacho. They definitely make an awesome team!

We had the tour on New Years Eve - and it was amazing. Only few people, everything well organized and a lot of fun. The horses are well educated and the nature including the beach and the lagoon overwhelming. It‘s worth every peso. Thanks to Pierre and Nico.

The horseback riding tour was in one word amazing! The tour has different phases like crossing a river, running with the horses on the beach, stunning sunset views and finally seeing hundreds of fireflies on the way back. Pierre is a really friendly guide with a good sense of humor:) Worth your money I can say!

The price itself was cheap for the experience of seeing countless baby turtels up close. And with the beautiful sunset in the background, it was the perfect evening. Our guides were amazing and it was releave to see how well protected the turtels and their area were.
