Everyone Welcome Shared Tour


At Lawson’s we pride ourselves on providing excellent, personalized and private tours for our discerning guests.

After some discussion, and based on guests requests, we have decided to experiment with the idea of ‘shared’ tours; that is, tours that anyone can join and that might appeal to those who are looking for a quality experience not necessarily in a private setting.

While the tour is for cruisers, if you are reading this and are interested there is no reason you can’t join the tour. Reserve your spot by paying your fee in advance and being there on time, and you’re good to go. “There” is our Progreso staging area on the corner of Calle 82 and Calle 27, next to the AutoProgreso bus terminal.

Here are the details.

A tour will be announced here, with a date and a destination, based on requests from guests. Those wishing to participate can sign up and pay their fee in full, to guarantee participation. This shared option will not be available for all our tours on every cruise day; it is offered on a trial basis for the time being. The tour listed on this page is the only tour that is being offered.

There will be a minimum number of participants (SIX GUESTS) and once that minimum has been reached, the tour will go ahead. If the minimum is not reached 72 hours prior to the date of the tour, the tour will be cancelled and any payments made will be refunded in full.

Tours will start at ship arrival time plus 60 minutes. After waiting 60 minutes the tour will depart, and it is up to each participant to arrive on time. We will not wait beyond 60 minutes out of respect for those who have made it on time. Participants who have paid and do not make it will not receive a refund on their tour.

Like all ship tours, full refunds are the norm for all if there is a weather or mechanical problem that doesn’t permit the ship to dock on the day.

Upcoming Everyone Welcome Tour - October 25, 2019

Shared Tour: Charles Carlton Cultural Cenote Culinary Tour!

From Progreso we will visit some small villages with their colorful markets ad learn a little about the colonial history of each place on the way to our destination, two fabulous cenotes where you will swim to your heart’s content. There will be a simple meal afterwards in the home of one of the local families in our Lawson’s Rural Tourism Program; this family receives a direct and palpable benefit from your visit and meeting them may very well be a highlight of your entire cruise, as many have said.

This is a shared tour and we require a minimum of 6 people to run the tour. However, we can also run it as a private tour for just you and yours, if you prefer. Let us know so we can get a quote for you.

Cost: $85 USD per person
