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.
Frank and Cardon were fantastic. I got so much information and it was awesome to get to Chichen Itza before the heat and when it wasnt too crowded. I would give the tour guides themselves 5 stars. My big disappointment was that I thought we'd actually be at Chichen Itza to see the sunrise, that is what I thought I was paying for and why I woke up at 4am...but you don't actually see any sunrise which is why I'm giving it 4 stars. You are on a bus. We got to Chichen Itza closer to 8am. I am not sure why we stopped at the Mayan Village before getting to Chichen Itza, we should have stopped there after then maybe we might have seen sunrise. All that said, i would still recommend this tour because you beat the heat and the crowds and the tour guides were fantastic.
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.
In my opinion Tulum was much more faszinating then Chichen Itza. We had a very motivated guide, who teached us a lot about the mayan culture and not the typical touristic stuff. The tour was well organized with starting at Tulum, relax at the Cenote before climbing up the temple at Coba. I only recommend to everybody to visit this places and to make this tour. Especially with Eknx Tours!!!
I seriously LOVED this tour, but mainly because of our tour guides! Seriously fun, friendly, informative and really on the ball and looked after us. I was on my own and I felt included at all times. The tequila on the way home was soo much fun too. I will never ever forget this tour. Massive thank you to the legend that is Stefano and to Gustavo! Bravo!
