A great trip! The booking via the app worked without any problems. We were even contacted directly by the organizer 2 days before (via WhatsApp) when and where we would be picked up (I had specified the hotel when booking). The guides did a good job of explaining the "tour plan" and telling each time what will happen and what to expect. The pickup was actually well organized. We were picked up from the hotel by a mini bus. When it was full (we were the first, then 4 hotels came) there was a "collecting point" where 2 more mini buses were added. All participants then got into a large coach, which was very comfortable for the further distances (also with the good bus toilet). On the way back, the big coach probably drove to all the hotels - since we were the lucky first, I don't know what happened next. A few key facts: our hotel was 10 minutes by car from Playa del Carmen. Pick up time: 7am Arrival time: 8pm

I give them a 5 but they have a lot to improve. 1. They picked us up late 2. The first trip is 2 hours by bus 3. On that trip they sell you sunscreen ($20) and mosquito spray ($12) According to them it has to be biodegradable. Bring yours. They also want to sell you a Mayan birth certificate for $20 4. You arrive at the first place very nice. There are 1 ounce tequila samples. And the bottle is $100 5. Trip 2 is 50 minutes. They try to sell you a bottle of Ani for $20 6. 2nd stop. It is quite long. We were hungry and thirsty. We were 3. We paid $40 for 7. 3rd trip to Valladolid. Not much to see. Some pork rinds and a bag of sweets for $10. 8. Journey 3.2 hours. They turn off the lights on the bus. Without music In other words, there is a lot to improve in logistics. It's better to rent a car and do it all by yourself. You're going to have a better time.

Samuel is the best! Very knowledgeable on the history, culture and civilization of the Mayan people. He was thorough, detailed and very funny! My only one complaint is that not enough time was spent in Valladolid. 40 minutes to tour the town was not enough. Also, less time could be spent at the gift shops at Hubiku, hence giving us more time potentially at Valladolid. Or break this into a separate tour altogether because Valladolid definitely needs more time.

The guide was great. The water in the cenotes was not cold compared to that of the lakes of Quebec. I recommend bringing water shoes for this tour. I really enjoyed this activity.

Very beautiful panorama, and the guide was very invested, he clearly explained to us all the history of this place and even more
