    Oman Day tours

    We just returned from Muscat, Oman (Celebrity Constellation - November 2017) where we used Sunshine Tours. Mohammed organized the half day tour and Ibrahim was our guide and driver. It was an excellent tour and we highly recommend them. Ibrahim was flexible, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and provided a great experience. It was obvious he loved his country and city. We always try to use local tour companies and have visited over 130 countries and this was one of the best tours we've experienced.

    Acapulco tour guide named Maria Ines?

    We were on the Spirit last month. We tried to get Rosie for a city tour in Acapulco, but were referred to Maria (also a "pink lady"). Well, she was GREAT. We would highly recommend her to anyone. The price was very reasonable and we saw everything we wanted and more. I think you would be very happy with Maria. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: bjsinger@verizon.net
  3. I am sorry, the correct e-mail address for Paco (Manzanillo) is chimaltour@prodigy.net.mx
  4. We just returned from Acapulco, Zihuatanejo and Manzanillo. The following are two independent tours and one restaurant that we really enjoyed. Acapulco - We did a city tour with Maria and were very happy with her and the tour. The price was very reasonable. You can e-mail her at: pinkladyaca@hotmail.com In Zihuatanejo we had lunch at the 3 Amigos restaurant (Pedro Ascencio / 5 De Mayo, behind a church). It's owned by an American and the food / service was great. It was also very clean. Manzanillo - We toured with Paco who owns Chimal Tours. We saw a lot of country plus lunch. He can be reached at:chimaltours@prodigy.net.mx

    Puntarenas Tour with Maurice Vazquez

    Cliff No, he didn't mentioned his car. He did say the his family was the most important thing in his life, his spotter scope ($3,000) was second, and his car third. I know he likes Dr. Pepper and collects baseball caps. Bob

    Puntarenas Tour with Maurice Vazquez

    Just returned from Puntarenas (Pride of Am) where we toured with Maurice. I can't say enought good things about him. There were 11 adults and two kids in our party. Maurice's cousin drove a new van with great A/C and lots of room. We walked through a rainforest national park on suspension bridges and trails ($30.00). Maurice works at the park and really knows his wildlife. Using his, very expensive, spotter scope we saw tucans, macaws, sloths, etc. He shared his binoculars with us too. We also took a boat down a river where we were saw many birds and crocs ($15.00). The boat driver will amaze you with his handling of a very large croc. Maurice bought us local beer and was always trying to find any wildlife so that we might all enjoy it too. We had time for shopping and REALLY enjoyed this young man. The tour cost $35.00 plus the canopy and river trips. We did three times as much at a 1/3 of the cost compared to the ship's tours. He can be reached at mauriciovp@hotmail.com If you have any questions, please contact me at bjsinger@verizon.net
