Perfect excursion. I detail the day: they picked us up at 9 in the morning at the hotel and we returned at 5 in the afternoon. First we went to the ruins of Tulum and then to Coba next. We finished around 2:00 p.m. and from there we went to eat at a Mayan reserve and then swim in a cenote. There were no dead times, which in my opinion is something to value, and the guides were more than charming, explaining everything with hairs and bones. Highly recommended.

It was a great trip. Not too crowded, friendly staff and cheap. Compared to the tour to providers at the stands, we were able to save around €50. The we had plenty of time for sightseeing. The only thing that was a pity was that Cobá was closed, but that's not their fault. An alternative was offered.

The tour guides really make or break the tour! And in this trip they MADE IT! The guides, especially Raymundo was exceptional: he explained everything in the scorching heat giving us a complete understanding of the history, culture and life of the places we were visiting. The other guides with him helped keep track of the people and offered water for free to make sure we were all well hydrated: it showed great care! We spent the morning in Tulum, we then went to Coba and experienced the park on an enjoyable bike ride! The site is very large and you can cover more ground on bike than by foot (if you dont like to bike (rental 60 pesos), they have little wagons where someone will bike you around for a little more money) but it beats walking in the heat. This fee is on you-bring pesos. After Coba, they took us to a cenote but it didnt have that cavern feel, and we hit traffic on the way to Playa Del Carmen at the end of the day, so we only had an hour to powerwalk the touristy district.
