This tour was great right from the start. Rudy met the six of us as we got off the ship and introduced us to Marco our driver/tour guide. He had an itinerary but was willing to detour if we wanted him to. We got to see so many different parts of Acapulco. The baby turtle release was so much fun... More

Acapulco 6 Hour Tailor Made Tour was excellent. A group of six us from a cruise booked Rudy through Tours By Locals but his local company is Tours by Van. We had an amazing time. Rudy kept in touch from the time of the booking to the actual tour. He made sure we had clear instructions about where he would... More

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!

Cruise pickup was quick and easy. Baby Turtle release was super and very memorable! Chapel of Peace had tremendous views of the city. Great city tour. Cliff Divers were great as Rudy gets all his people reserved seats with a view of the complete dive! (Well done Rudy!) You get to do it all with this tour, and we had... More

Rudy's tour was great. We were on a ship and had one day to experience Acapulco and Rudy delivered. We saw an amazing cross section of Acapulco from the comfort of his van. We had the pleasure of releasing endangered baby turtles into the sea, visiting a wonderful chapel with an incredible story, viewing a snapshot of lower, middle and... More

Rudy picked us up at the cruise ship, shortly after we docked. My friends and I were surprised that there was one van , just for the four of us. There was another van for the remainder of the group. Our driver took us first to a baby turtle release at a nearby beach. On the way, we stopped for... More

The enthusiasm that Rudy has for the work he does was clear from just after I enquired if he was free. He wasn't personally available for the day our ship was in Acapulco, but he responded almost immediately in great depth and clarity to say that he could offer a tour with a colleague of his and to ask what...

On our recent Panama cruise on Norwegian Jewel, our 2nd port of call was Acapulco. I did a lot of research for available tours for our group of 8 and was very impressed with all the great reviews on Rudy's company. I contacted Rudy, who responded very enthusiastically with a detailed outline of his tour. Right from the moment he... More

After searching for a comprehensive shore excursion in Acapulco, I chose Tour by Van WITH RUDY, based on previous reviews. Let me tell you: THIS IS THE TOUR TO BOOK when you are in Acapulco. First-class service, and way more than I even expected. From the pier pick-up until a final private tour of the "witchcraft" market at the end... More

We spent a week in Acapulco and the city tour with Rudy and Roger was one of the hilights of the trip. Both men share a passion for their jobs, along with a vast knowledge of the city and Mexico in general. It was very intimate, as we were the only people in the truck with them, The interaction between... More
