Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Debated a whole day with my friend on whether or not we should put in the money as this was towards the end of our backpacking trip in Mexico but this was the best decision we ever made. The fact that the guide was so caring and respectful about the animals and really took the time to explain everything he knew about them made the experience even better! Words cannot describe the feeling you get when you're swimming with the whale sharks and we even saw a manta ray...
Saying this experience was amazing would be an understatement. Highlight of our trip!
PS: The ceviche is ++++

So, my friends and I had been planning this trip for so long and choosing Willy's was just the right call. They were friendly, helpful and overall amazing. They took us to the most beautiful places and made sure we got as much from the experience as we could. And it doesn't hurt to say that the ceviche they make is a knockout. I can't recommend enough.

One good review can be begged, two or three bought, but there is a reason Willy's Tours get so many recommendations - they are professional, responsive, able to think on their feet when things change at the last minute and will listen to your priorities rather than just sell you the standard tour packages.

Jimmy himself was outstanding, even when he was off Holbox on other business. Plus, he recommended us our favourite restaurant in the whole of Holbox - the simply delicious Los Pescaditos.

Do not hesitate. Jimmy is your man in Holbox.

Had an excellent experience, our guides were awesome and patient, even with one annoying tourist. Well worth the time and money; humbling, saw jumping Manta Ray, Flamingos, Dolphins and yes the Whale sharks. Served up awesome ceviche, sandwiches and cold drinks. Highly recommend!!!

This experience was a major bucket list item for me and Willy's made sure it did not disappoint. Each group snorkeled with the sharks at least twice and the captain was careful and respectful of the sharks space. The ceviche was so good - it was my first time trying it and I encourage others to try it as well! We also stopped at Yum Balam nature reserve and saw the flamingoes and snorkeled where I saw stingrays and a turtle. You definitely get your money's worth on the tour, I definitely recommend it.
