This was an excellent cultural activity! Our guide was very energetic and knowledgeable, well organized and friendly. I liked that he spoke in both Spanish and English during the tour. The tour itself was extremely well organized, from transportation from our resort to visiting the sites and having lunch. We arrive at the exact time for the Muyil and Tulum sites. They weren't overrun with tourists, which meant it was possible to enjoy the sites and have some quiet time in the rainforest. I highly recommend this!

Excellent educational and immersive tour in Mayan culture. The guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional. The instructions were precise and easy to follow. Get ready for an unforgettable trip! This is a multi-hour tour. So pack water and snacks, or money to buy them at all three places. Tulum and Muyil are magnificent and worth every penny to see. The cenote is fun and everyone loved the fresh water at the end. The food was delicious, very different from our hotel. !Authentically Mexican!

A trip to the top! Visit of Tulum, Coba and Cenote Mariposa. A very intense day but worth it. Be aware that it is now forbidden to climb the Great Pyramid in Coba. My tour guide was not up to date on this. The cenote is really nice. Quite small but quite confidential. We were almost alone to enjoy it! Top ! The food was very good too. The guide and the driver took very good care of us (bottles of water at each stage, snacks, etc.). I really recommend this excursion and this agency!

What an incredible birdwatching experience ! My guide Marcelo picked me up at my hotel and we had a nice coffee before starting the tour. He shared with me his incredible knowledge of the area and the birds. His skills to identify calls and birds impressed me. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in birds and mayan culture.

The tour was amazing’ ! Experience was incredibly authentic…. We are so thankful we chose this one. Bring snacks …. don’t bring kids!
