Great, both Ovet and Eliuk made the excursion super enjoyable. I would repeat a thousand times more with them. We had a great time, Ovet's explanations were the best, solving doubts and making the tour so interesting that he kept you attentive at all times. Both chichen itza and balam are spectacular. And hubiku, really the best.

This was an amazing day! The weather the horrible at the start of the day but but the time we got to our first destination it was beautiful. Mario was our tour guide and he was beyond excellent. He took the time to explain everything. He gave us a detailed explanation of Chichen Itza on the way there and then when we got there explained things in more detail. He was the best tour guide we have ever had. I highly recommend this tour and Mario as the guide!!

Amazing Experience!

The tour was great! We brought along our 19 month old toddler and the guide was very patient and understanding with us. What keeps me from giving the tour 5 stars is that we had to drive an additional 60-90 minutes from Cancun to Riviera Maya in order to pick up other people on the tour and that we didn’t have a lot of time at the ruins (but with three stops that was expected). Overall we had a great time and learned a lot about Mayan history and culture.
