What people are saying about Cancún
We were picked up right on time by a nice air conditioned tour bus. I purchased this tour intending to see Tulum which we did however for a VERY short time. We were pleasantly surprised to spend more time at Coba which was a historical experience which is less touristy. We were taken to an amazing water hole but the bad news is that none of the reminder emails told me to bring my bathing suit. We experienced a Mayan Shaman ritual and had a great lunch. Be prepared for a 12 hour day, The only thing I would complain about is we were rushed through Tulum and at the end we had to divert into other vans that were not clearly marked on the side of a road in Mexico which seemed a little sketch. Loved our tour guide Luis. He was passionate about the Mayan culture and it showed through his tour.
The trip was filled with amazing activities and the tour guides did an exceptional job. The first stop was to a Mayan community which was lots of fun. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to give us helpful tips for the trip (i.e wear sunscreen, prepare for mosquitoes, food to try). At Chichén Itzá we were given the option of English or Spanish tour and were given plenty of time to walk around after the tour. At the small town we stopped on our way back to Cancun was a nice taste of Mexican culture a part from the tourist side of the city. Over all it was worth it and I would have expected to pay way more for the service. I would highly recommend. Be prepare to be walking all day because it’s a 12 hour day filled with activities.
Eugenio was an exceptional guide, he welcomed everyone in the group and introduced us all to the others in the group which broke the ice and we felt we really got to know everyone. The day was relaxed, no wasted time but not rushed either. First went to swim with the turtles via a short boat trip, saw two turtles and loads of colourful fish in the reef followed by a cruise past the Tulum Mayan ruins, then lunch on the go to 4 cenotes, swimming in a couple of them. We bought the photos at the end, Eugenio was using a GoPro camera throughout which we eventually received the photos 12 days later after repeated requests, not sure what the delay was but some great photos and videos (via drop box). Thoroughly recommend this trip.
This tour was absolutely brilliant. My mum and I booked it online because it was significantly cheaper than the prices given to us from our holiday provider and therefore we didn’t know what to expect. From start to finish it was well organised, interesting and fun. Our tour guide Ricardo was full of knowledge and translated from Spanish to English perfectly. You will definitely get an insight into the Mayan culture and the use of their remarkable knowledge. As well as this, you will experience the picturesque cenote jumping and of course the famous Chichen Itza. We felt safe and comfortable throughout, I couldn’t recommend this tour enough!!!
It was a long day, but the tour guide was enthusiastic and the places were nice to see! Went with a big touring bus with good airco. First we went to Valladolid, then had a stop at a (bit too) commercial Maya shop with buffet lunch (which tasted fine!), then went to Chichen Itza and then to the Ik Kil cenote. Disadvantage is you go to Chichen Itza at the hottest period of the day. Advantage is, because it is after lunch, that it is not so busy anymore. And after that you will have a refreshing dive in the cenote, if you dare (a lot of people don't seem to and that is funny to see :D ). No regrets for taking this tour.
