    The canyon itself was...
    Jacqueline_B, May 2024
    The canyon itself was incredible! The guides all spoke in Spanish so as an English speaker I would recommend finding a different tour. Considering half the group didn't speak Spanish it was hard to co-ordinate meeting places and times. Also we were just dropped off on the edge of San Cristobal at the end and not taken back to our hotels.
    Canyon is a must see! No english tour though!
    Max_O, Mar 2024
    The tour overall was 'okay'. The sightings were absolutely stunning! The boat tour on the water through the canyon was incredible, that is something you have to see! We even saw multipe crocodiles. The tour operator itself was okay, otherwise it would have been a 5 star review. The driver/guide only spoke Spanish, as well as the boat driver. I think it's okay because we're in a Spanish speaking country after all. But would have been nice to learn a bit more about what we saw.
    Great experience!

    Brilliant tour through the canyon where we saw monkeys crocodiles armadillos and iguanas. We also enjoyed a wonderfull local festival in the village where we stopped ar the end of the trip.
    incredible, well-planned and well worth it day in chiapas
    Katarina_G, Jan 2024
    excellent day! even though i booked very last minute, they picked me up very timely, we saw 2 miradores and did the boat cruise and got to see chiapa de corzo for 1.5 hours which i LOVED. this was an incredible value and i have seen a lot of mexico, yet this day was surely a memorable one
    Fine tour - but wasn’t English
    Louise_T, Jul 2023
    The boat ride was amazing and the sites was fine. A bit disappointed that we ordered a tour which was on English but ended up being Spanish spoken. We unfortunately lost a lot of knowledge and where kind of sad because we took the tour to gain knowledge and experience but it didn’t end up with that.
    Great tour, fun and well organised, with helpful customer support

    My fiancé and I went on this tour and really enjoyed it. The tour had everything we wanted with the viewpoints and boat ride. The boat driver was good fun, even driving us under a waterfall for a splash! He stopped for photo opportunities and they know where to stop for birds, alligators and monkeys so well organised. We went with the Spanish speaking tour guide and don't believe it made a difference. We went on the tour on the same morning we arrived in San Cristobal after a night bus and would recommend as long as you can leave your luggage somewhere. You can nap on the journey out to the canyon if you need it and it meant we have the rest of our stay in San Cristobal to relax. The Viator voucher mentions that you need to redeem it from the travel company to get your ticket however once we explained to the company that we were only arriving that morning by messaging in the app, they assured us that was fine and replied within ~1hr which was really appreciated! The driver picked us up from where we were staying in the town and rang to confirm where we were that morning which was assuring too.
    Terrible i do not recommend
    marissahambric, May 2022
    I do not recommend this tour, do not book with them. You have to go to their location to pick up a “ticket.” I went and there was no actual ticket to pick up so this process makes no sense. Upon arrival i gave the tour operator my airbnb address which was a 3 min drive or 13 min walk to their location but the operator said it was too far and they could not pick me up. My place is literally walking distance from here so that does not make any sense. I was also booked a Spanish only speaking tour even though the operator knew that I did not speak Spanish. I had no clue what was going on and what time to meet back up. The tour guide did not care to help at all. Thankfully there was someone also on the tour that spoke english so they helped me and translated all of the important information. You can book the same tour for a similar price once you get to San Cristobal. Just wait once you get there to book a tour. Booking on visitor is overpriced and the cheapest which i this one was terrible.
    Good tour, dire booking and administration.
    Nigel_A, Jan 2022
    The ridiculous process of receiving a ticket from the office in San Cristobal. Why? Why could this not have been sent and checked electronically? The office was not open at the advertised time. If we had arrived in San Cristobal later the office would have been closed and we would not have been able to collect the ticket. Why was this info not available at the time of booking before any monies were taken? The pickup was over half an hour late - it was not possible to get hold of anyone to find out where they were! The tour itself was ok, but the messing about to get it started was pointless and stupid.
    More frustration than fun
    Jasmin_D, Mar 2021
    I told them twice that I changed my accommodation but they forgot to pick me up. Also I went to their office and ask if the Miradores del Canõn are definitely included. They said yes. When I arrived at the Canõn they told me that it is just possible to do the bootstour and to visit the city. But that was not true because friends of mine were on their way to the viewpoints of the cañon at this point. I went on the boat and really could not enjoy it because I was sad that I can not see Miradores. After the tour they told me that I can join a group to go to the viewpoints. So we went to Chiapa de Corzo and picked them up. I just had 15 minutes in the city and could not see anything or not even eat something (the whole day). I am happy that I could experience the Miradores at the end but usually you are going to 5 viewpoints and he took us just to 2 of them. All in all I was really upset and can not recommend this company.

    Very cheap the tour,and beautiful places, the food very good.Everything was ok I recommend for everybody this tour. I enjoyed.
    Prachtige plaatsen, slechte organisatie.
    Kelly, Feb 2024
    De bezochte plaatsen op zich waren geweldig! Prachtige watervallen, mooie ruines,... De organisatie ervan was een ramp, zeker als je niet vloeiend spaans spreekt... We werden als laatste opgepikt waardoor we op de achterbank moesten zitten terwijl alle anders passagiers een luxe stoel hadden die een heel stuk achteruit kon. We betaalden nochtans dezelfde prijs. Alle uitleg is in het spaans, op zich geen probleem, echter hoorde wij niets achteraan en moesten we telkens opnieuw vragen waar en hoe laat we terug moesten zijn. Bij Palenque liep het helemaal mis. Wij zaten mooi op tijd te wachten aan de uitgang (salida) van het park maar de bus stond te wachten aan de ingang. Wij contacteerden het bureau om te laten weten waar we stonden maar buiten een foto waar we moesten staan kregen we niet. Na 40 min na afgesproken uur beginnen we dus te stappen om zelf te zoeken waar de bus stond. Er was geen enkele communicatie tussen het bureau waarmee we contact hadden en de buschauffeur... Uiteindelijk vonden we de bus na 25 min stappen en keert hij doodleuk terug naar de plaats waar wij een uur hebben staan wachten!! Iedereen kon daar nog naar het toilet gaan (tuurlijk want daar is de uitgang). Dit alles om 15u in de hitte en boze blikken van alle medepassagiers... geen leuke ervaring dus....
    Muy bonito día gracias a...

    Muy bonito día gracias a Víctor y El Capitan del barco excelente día! Vimos de todo aves marinas, crocodilos, monos y lo más bonito los cañones
    Tolle Schlucht, aber zu lange An- und Abfahrt
    Marion_S, Nov 2023
    Der Cañon ist auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert, allerdings war die Fahrzeit im Verhältnis zur Zeit vor Ort deutlich zu lang. Teilweise lag das an einem Stau, aber ich hätte gedacht, dass es besser wäre, in Chiapa de Corzo das Boot zu besteigen und nicht am anderen Ende der Schlucht. Das bedeutete nämlich, dass wir letztendlich 3x durch Tuxtla mit dem Minibus gefahren sind und nur wenig Zeit auf dem Boot waren. Wir stoppten auch nur an 2 Aussichtspunkten und kamen trotzdem erst viel zu spät zurück.
    Tour sin acompletan
    No se pudo realizar completo el tour debido a un bloqueo de carretera, quise hablar con el operador del tour pero me dijo que ya no se podía realizar

    Mayralizzete_L, Jun 2023
    Una experiencia imperdible si vas a Chiapas, los cañones del sumidero hermosos, el paseo en lancha muy divertido lo recomiendo mucho.
    hector_a, May 2023
    Es una experiencia impresionante,todo es majestuoso lo recomiendo bastante ,el río la fauna el paseó me llevo una grata impresión
    Sehr empfehlenswert
    Therese_G, Nov 2022
    Miradores sind sehr zu empfehlen da die Höhe richtig zur Geltung kommt Beim Veranstalter Selvazur muss man sich am Vortag im Büro melden, was etwas mühsam ist
    Canyon magnifique, bon prix, conditions pas top (bus, langue)
    Benoit_M, Apr 2022
    Sortie bien sympa : les points de vue du haut et la ballade en bateau sont très beaux et complémentaires. Seul étranger avec 13 mexicains, ambiance locale garantie! Le guide / chauffeur (ou plutôt pilote devrais-je dire) semble avoir plu au groupe. Par contre, véhicule plein à craquer et pas adapté pour des grands comme moi (1.85m). Sans bien comprendre l'espagnol, pas facile.

    From $36.00
