    Amazing canyon and great guide
    Andrew_M, Apr 2024
    Excellent tour, the canyon is amazing and we saw monkeys and crocodiles. The English guide was amazing and made the tour for us. Highly recommended
    Great Canyon Trip
    Robin_S, May 2023
    We had a great experience, other than the boat driver was driving the boat erratic (swaying back and forth) to please some of the guests. He was however very knowledgeable about the canyon.

    David_M, Feb 2023
    We booked the 6 h tour without the viewpoints (miradores) but found ourselves on a 10 h tour with miradores which was not clear to us in the beginning. If you are staying in San Cristobal book the tour at one of the many tour companies von the street "Real de Guadeloupe", it only costs half of the price here, which means 600 MXN = 30 €. The canyon is absolutely amazing. I would always do the boat trip again. Chiapas is nice. A stay of 1-2 h is sufficient.
    Breathtaking Canyon
    Sean_G, Jan 2023
    We really enjoyed the day trip. Our guide was fantastic and filled us in on the history, culture and legends of the Canyon and area. Cruising through the Canyon was stunning . We saw crocodiles , cormorants, heron, vultures, spider monkeys and more. The Canyon itself is breathtaking. We also saw a waterfall , bird island and dam. Then we went to the quaint pretty town of Chiapas de corzo were our host took us to a tasty restaurant for lunch. Then we drove back up the mountain to get gorgeous birds eye views of the river we had just sailed on. This is a must-see, essential tour.
    No need for English guide
    MariaLouise_H, Aug 2022
    Save money and just pick the Spanish version even if you only speak English… We picked the English version, but our guide was late so he first joined after the boat ride and he did not add ANY value at Chiapa de Corzo as he just sat in the restaurant and ate instead of walking with us in the city, and when we asked what he would recommend us to see while he were there he just said the main square. So just use Google and save some money

    MARINA_L, Jul 2022
    We really enjoyed the boat trip to Sumidero Canyon, it was so magic and relaxing to be in such a beautiful natural landscape! Our guide , Jonathan is very knowledgeable about the culture and history of his country and he did make a very good translation through the boat tour! It was nice visiting Chiapa de Corzo, just getting around the central square and having a delicious lunch , though in a crowded local restaurant. The only disadvantage was the price of the tour, a little overestimated because of our guide in English.

    The experience was wonderful and safe, picking up/drop off guest was good Grouping by language was good
    caoimh_r, Feb 2022
    Great tour, guide Eduardo was very friendly. We did share a boat with a group that wasn’t on our tour which we found a little confusing but It didn’t affect our enjoyment. Just
    Excellent guides who went above and beyond
    Arianna_D, Jan 2020
    The night before our tour we were notified of a rock slide in the canyon and thus the boats would not be running. We were given the option of rescheduling or still doing the tour, but with sightseeing of the Canyon. We decided on the sight seeing since we already had plans for other days. The sightseeing was fun, got good pictures of the upper portion on the canyon and our guides were very nice and knew very good english. We were a small group so the right up there was pretty enjoyable. After the sightseeing we went to the town and they gave us the option of eating at a couple different places. The restaurant was good. Afterwards we walked around town a bit, but decided that maybe we would want to go home around 3:30. It was at this point that the tour guides went above and beyond. They told us that the boats began operating again and that we could catch the boat ride if we wanted. All but one agreed and so we quickly rushed down to catch a boat. We made it just in time! The canyon is absolutely beautiful and the boat operators would stop for us to view wildlife like iguanas, monkeys and crocodiles. The boat operators do this portion of the tour and it is in spanish, but it is not needed in order to appreciate the beauty of the canyon.
    Above and beyond
    Katherine_C, Jan 2020
    Tour guide and driver were very charming and kindly offered to take us on the river trip at the end of the day as it was cancelled in the morning due to rock fall. This added at least 2 hours to their working day. Very kind of them and much appreciated
    Beautiful canyon ruined with plastic
    Rebecca_Z, Nov 2019
    Was very sad to see such a stunning canyon, only to be covered in plastic bottles and trash. We even saw crocodiles swimming through the river or bottles. Was really sad. Apart from that, the tour guides were very nice.
    Great trip
    Bjarne S, Nov 2019
    The car was very small but else it was a amazing tour. Nothing to complain about. The guide was good.
    Complaint - sumidero canyon & chiapa de corzo
    justynakania123, Oct 2019
    this trip was completely below our expectations. we paid extra for the English guide, and most of the time we were with a Spanish-speaking driver or a Spanish-speaking guide in Sumidero Canyon. the English speaking guide spent only time with us in Chiapa de Corzo - showing only a few places near Zocalo and on the Sumidero Canyon viewpoints. The main attraction was taking pictures of us. value for money - we rate very low. please consider our complaint and refund at least part of the amount.
    Response from Host, Oct 2019
    Thank you for your comments, Dear Customer, we value your comments and we are confident that we can improve day by day. Regarding the translator, the specifications of the route are clear and are shown in the section that includes the route. Where it says it is not included in the boat ride. Regards!

    Tiffany_M, Feb 2018
    We had a pick up- mix up and ended up in the Spanish tour. Luckily once we got to the docks we saw our previous tour guide ( Anthony) and he quickly made ammends- he called the company and switch us for the latter half and he prepped us the highlights of the boat ride.

    Fantastic! The English speaking guide, Isaac, was excellent-good English, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic-went the extra mile to give a really good days experience
    Canyon del Sumidero
    Consolata_S, Mar 2023
    Il viaggio è molto lungo ma comunque ne vale la pena perché il Canyon è affascerà la gita in barca sul fiume emozionate Abbiamo visto le scimmie e tantissimi uccelli levarsi in volo al nostro passaggio. Al termine abbiamo pranzato sulla riva del fiume in un comedor vero messicano con ottimi camarones
    Tour demasiado largo y pesado. Dura mucho más de lo que te dicen
    ANA_P, Apr 2022
    Mucho más largo que las 6 horas que se indican. No merece la pena subir a todos los miradores, se pierden 3 horas antes de llegar a la barca. Después te paran en Chiapa de Corzo, que no tiene nada que ver, hace muchísimo calor e intentan que vayas a comer donde el guía quiere. Es demasiado largo y pesado para lo que se ve
