Punctual collection, good food on the bus! Little information.

We would be picked up at the hotel on time. The food on the bus was very good. The guide explained the most important things in English and Spanish. All companions were very friendly. In Tulum about half an hour would be informed about the sight. Here we had hoped for something more. The subsequent visit to a cenote was a positive surprise. Overall a nice trip!

A great trip with a great crew around Martin

The trip had everything to offer. Nice and funny guides who provided us with beer, tequila, water, juices as well as chips, sandwiches and cookies for free. The tour was not stiff and easy to understand in English. Finally, a swim in a great grotto served as refreshment. I can recommend everyone planning a short trip to Cancun / Playa del Carmen.
