We went ahead and did a tour with Mazatlan Frank when we were on our 4/17 cruise to the Mexican Riviera. He is a fabulous tour guide. We highly recommend him.

MLT53, thanks for the info. Were there other passengers on your tour? If so, did *you* find them (to make up the minimum number) or did Frank fill the other tour spaces himself? I guess I'm just concerned that I might have to pay a huge guarantee amount if it ends up being only my husband and myself on the tour.

Which tour did you take?

This past November, several of us from our roll call got together and booked with Frank. It was a wonderful tour and he is very reliable with a newer model van. No worries when you book with Frank. He is highly recommended by all who have used him.

I have become very discouraged with
Mazatlan Frank. I have emailed several times and also re-emailed his link that says if you haven't heard in two days click here. At this point, I don't know what to do next. Maybe he is all booked up, but an email saying that would be nice.

That's really odd. I've just booked an excursion with Frank for April 2007, and he corresponded as if it were for next week. I think there was only one e-mail that went unanswered for over 24 hours; when he did reply, he apologized because he had been under the weather.

Hang in there. Can't help but think you'll hear from Frank soon.

That is very unusual for Frank. You could try sending one more email, but check the options for "Request Read Receipt" and "Request Delivery Receipt" (it is under View, Options... when you are composing your message in Outlook or Outlook Express). This will let you know if he actually receives your message.

Here is his actual email address just in case: [email protected]

Hope that helps! Good Luck.

I heard from Mazatlan Frank this morning. Apparently he has trouble getting emails from Road He's a very nice man and hopefully we will be able to set up a tour with him.
