It was really a great experience! We were contacted via WhatsApp the day before when we would be picked up. Our group consisted of only 8 people, which made it very individual and relaxing. First stop in Tulum, where there is a small tour and then you can explore yourself. Back to the meeting point, where it goes straight to the cenote - beautifully located, very quiet and just fantastic. After cooling down there is lunch and then we continue to Coba. We recommend taking the bikes there to go to the temple. Fantastically beautiful! The tour was very well organized and our tour guide was really nice and always tried to give us all a great trip! Gracias Mario !! The driver was great too! We felt very well cared for and can really recommend this tour to everyone !!!

From the start to finish this trip was amazing. We travelled with our Daughter's age 11 & 17. The trip was exceptional value for money and it included lunch. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and everything ran on time considering we had 3 places to visit. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

We were picked up at our hotel in Playa del Carmen in a 10 to 12 person van and transported to a central collection point from which different tours left in large, comfortable tour buses. This was confusing to us as it had not been explained to us in advance. After the Tulum tour we returned to the central location, were driven 5 to 10 minutes in vans to La Gloria cenote, then lunch at the central location, followed by tour bus transport to Coba and finally back to Playa del Carmen. We had a short walk to our hotel as the large bus could not navigate the smaller streets. Altogether the tour spent less than 6 hours at the sites and 6 hours in transport, transfers, clothes changing, and the provided meal. The tour guides were excellent and provided much information about the Mayan culture and the sites themselves.
