It all started with browsing for a tour company for our honeymoon. I read the reviews for Captain Quickie and sent an e-mail to enquire. I got a prompt e-mail back from Captain Quickies wife Amy. The tours we did were amazing and i will get to that but i have to spend some time telling you what sets this tour company apart from all the rest.
From the very first e-mail Amy was a dream to deal with. She is knowledgable about the area, will answer any and all of your questions with pleasure no matter how many times you e mail her. I have never had this kind of personal service and felt this important when dealing with a company. This is what sets Amy and Quikie apart from other tour providers. They all "tour you" but Amy, Quickie and thier crew Steff and Hector go above and beyond from the start to make sure you have a good time, are safe and secure and limit the group to what they can handle. Your not a number you are a very important person to them and thier priority is you and your good time not how much money they can make in a day.
My husband and i had a special request for a tour that was not on thier website. I thought it was a long shot to ask but Amy and Quickie had no problem responding and made our dreams come true by putting together a special tour of Ek Balam ruins and the city of Viadollid. Other tourists were not too interested because this is a 6hr round trip inland but we saw a program on TV covering this area and really wanted to go see the history and the culture away from the touristy areas. In order to not let us down and make this happen for us Amy and Quickie made a tour by coming along and getting members of thier family, crew and friends to go so we could hire a guide, driver and share the cost making it happen and making it affordable!. ABOVE and BEYOND!. But that is what this company is all about. I have to tell you before i found Captain Quikie i asked another tour providor for this tour and was told in a one sentance e mail. "Sorry no we don't do that". Thank god Amy and Quickie do because we had the most amazing day with amazing people who made us feel like we were a part of thier family and had been friends for years. We even had the pleasure of baby Ruby's company who handled the trip like a real trooper and future guide.
The two other tours we did are on thier website. The snorkel and Catamaran trip and the Zip-line tour at Quikies brothers Jungle park. Woweee! both were so much fun and informative and we will have memories for a lifetime. Quickie i love your smile and your laughter, your knowledge and your insight. Hector your fun and funny, Steff your so personable, humorous and fiesty, how many languages do you speak?. I can't thank-you all enough. James and i will never forget all the good times you showed us and how we became friends.
If your wondering who do i choose to book my tours through?. There is no decision. Beyond the reviews these people are the be all and the end all of any tour buisiness out there. They kick butt and will go the extra mile to make sure yours is looked after!!
Quickie you asked for any feedback to improve. I have really thought about this and all i can say is keep doing what your doing and keep believeing you are not only the best but the only company with this much integrity. Oh i guess there is one thing- give little recipe cards out for your homemade Guacamole, Amy's cheese sandwiches and the Cheviche OMG that stuff is so good and i am missing it! I know you told me what's in it but my brain is back in back to work mode and full of other stuff like snow and trying to stay warm!
Anybody e-mail me if you want to ask questions about these guys or better yet just e mail them and i gaurantee you you will love your tours and your hosts!
I would add pic's but i haven't figured out how yet with this computer just go to Captain Quickie website and you can see all the tours.
