I had an amazing day trip with my guide Manuel, who has a very deep knowledge. It was a unique experience to listen to history and be right on the spot at the same time. I have learnt a lot about Mayan culture. I really liked that we visited 3 main sights within the same day, the cenote and the lunch was great, not crowded because we arrived in the best time. I was travelling alone so it was a great plus that I did not have to wait for anyone.

This was the absolute best tour if you are interested in birds at all. My husband’s hobby is bird photography and this was probably his favorite part of our honeymoon. The driver, Axel, and the guide, Lope, were professional and very friendly! We ended up seeing 52 different bird species in the morning and were provided a delicious homemade breakfast. If we were back in the Cancún area I am sure we would do the tour again!

We liked the tour with Manuel, who offered us a lot of informations about Mayan civilization and about the archeological sites. Hacienda Selva Maya and it’s cenote were good places to eat and swim between Maya ruins. We also found out a lot about Mexic during the ride. PS: at least two cold beers per person are included. :)

Lugo was extremely knowledgeable and determined for us to see as many local birds as possible. Noe was an excellent driver and took really good care of us.

Very good tour! Recommended. The Guide Álvaro Lechuga was very kind.
