Undoubtedly one of the most relaxing, informative, and beautiful tours we could ever have imagined. Gerson was helpful and kind from the moment he met our group. His wealth of knowledge added to the enjoyment of this tour.
When we signed up for the Mayan tour, we had no idea we were in for such a beautiful day.
Thank you for the opportunity to experience the island. Sitting at the restaurant on the beach …watching the blue ocean waves, while enjoying fajitas, chips, and drinks…was picturesque.
Muchos Gracias Amingo!

The tour was simply awesome. Varied, great scenery, great tour guide. For me so far one of my highlights in Mexico ? Birgit imparts her knowledge totally sympathetic, responds to the needs and you have above all at each spot enough time. Any time again!

The day with LeonTours on Cozumel was great!
Birgit is an incredibly kind and nice person. Thanks to her we had an incredibly beautiful and exciting day! With a jeep we went around half the island and that in a smaller group of four. Thank you for making our day so sweet and showing us so many great places!
We would choose LeonTours again and again! ♡
Nadine M. –
We were personally looked after by Birgit.From the beginning of the booking to the end of the implementation, the tour has worked excellently. Every necessary change Birgit informed us, so it was unproblematic to find each other. The guided tour of the Mayan ruins were very informative and entertaining, as was the visit to the Teqila Museum. We got to know several beaches. Birgit reacted flexibly to the unfortunately not very good weather and showed us Cozumel’s city. She even thought of our health in the form of water and insect spray. We say a big thank you for this great day.

It was a great excursion with lots of notes and background knowledge at each place from the guide. Our most beautiful excursion in the course of the tours of our cruise.
Manuel U. –
Private tour with Gerson. He has brought us closer to the island with a lot of heart and a huge knowledge and showed many beautiful corners. He responded to our wishes and we always had the opportunity to take photos and ask questions. We are happy that we came across Leon Tour. We are very happy to recommend you! No mass handling but individual round trip. Great. Thank you very much, Gerson. GRACIAS!

We spontaneously requested a tour and the next day we were off. At the port we were welcomed by Birgit. She asked us about our wishes and responded to us individually. A super tour, we have seen a lot off the tourist masses. Birgit had prepared everything very well and when we also wanted to snorkel, she also made this possible. A great day on the island thanks to Birgit from Leontours .

We can recommend Leon Tours without reservation. Reliable, flexible and competent. Birgit, who is super nice, gave us an unforgettable experience on Cozumel and wonderful memories. She showed us the island, brought over the fascination for the Mayan culture and fulfilled our wishes (such as visiting a local supermarket). We were only on Cozumel for one day, but Leon Tours made us so excited about Mexico that we will definitely be back.
Marc C. –
We booked the tour and can only recommend it. Andrea accompanied us and really took a lot of time. We could learn a lot through her and had a lot of fun! Beautiful island with many animals. The tour was not expensive at all. So… See that you book the tour and I hope you have the with Andrea ???
Rainer T. –
We were on a cruise in Cozumel and booked a day tour with Leon Tours. Meeting and re-arrival at the ship has worked great and on time. The tour guide was very professional and super nice. She was also prepared for all eventualities (water in the bus, moscito spray etc.). Our wishes were taken into account and she gave us many insider tips. We had an unforgettable day in Mexico and would book here again anytime.
