Amazing. Gonzo is extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate. He can occasionally get off on a tangent but everything is interesting so it's no problem.

Truly magical experience. Gonzo took us places in the cave where most people don't go. You could tell that he is a premium tour guide when other tours ask for his insight. Thanks Gonzo!

Gonzo is an excellent guide. Very safety conscious and sensitive of the delicate environment. In his "off" months, he is an archeological cave researcher so he is full of hand-on knowledge.

Our experience with Gonzo taking us to and through the ATM cave was a once-in-a-lifetime experience we will never forget. Gonzo is an archeologist who has first hand knowledge of the cave and its history and artifacts. He has a great reverence for the cave...More

Gonzo and David took us on this amazing journey of the ATM cave tour. Gonzo being a archeological researcher himself brought the whole Maya experience to life. While the other tourists were being shuttled in and out of the cave, we experienced a totally remarkable...More
