Hermoso Lugar

One of the best guided tour experiences ever! The tour was very good organized: we got breakfast and water, the group was not big, the bus was comfortable, with air condition, our driver, Pablo, was good and professional. Our guide Hector made our day really perfect: he is very knowledgeable, polite and professional, we learned a lot about Mayan culture, colonial culture, Mexican traditions and food, he answered all of our questions and gave a lot of recommendations. All locations we’ve visited were amazing! We arrived to Chichén Itzá at the right time in the morning and it was not crowded, the lunch was delicious, cenot was beautiful and not very touristic, with a very nice chill zone. Highly recommend!

This is a wonderful tour! Uxmal is the most beautiful ruin site and it was great to be basically the first tour group there while it was cool in the morning. The buffet lunch was excellent and again, we were the first group there. The location of the restaurant was beautiful! Then on to the hacienda which was very interesting. Our guide was very dramatic and his enthusiasm really added to the fun. I loved seeing how the henequene was processed into the fibres and made into ropes. Then we had a unique ride on a mule driven train car to the cenote for a very refreshing hour to cool off. All in all, the best overall tour I’ve had in Mexico and very good value for the money.

GUide from Elinor tours was excellent, though day was long. GYG gave me wrong information about pickup/drop off. They told me only one location was possible and that was some distance from my hotel. In fact, they picked up passengers about a block from my hotel and luckily I was able to be dropped off there. To get to the pickup spot, I had to take a cab. I specifically asked GYG about pickup/drop off and they gave me wrong information. They even told me they’d contacted the tour provider about the issue, but if they had, they would have learned about the alternative pickup/drop off info.

Great experience! Quite a long day but so much was packed into this tour. Our guide, Carlos, was very informative and well-organized; he made sure we stuck to our schedule and we made it back to Merida on time. Of course, people will say that not enough time was spent in Vallodolid or Izamal but those deserve separate trips of their own. However if you have limited time and are ready for a long day, then this is a wonderful tour. The cenote was also very beautiful.

This trip takes you to 4 of great places to visit in the Yucatan Ouf guide was the best - Carlos spoke on both spainish and English and was so well versed on the areas he shared with us - it was a long but so worth while day - would highly recommend this tour
