What people are saying about Tulum

Ceaser, our guide was extremely attentive and informative. I was picked up on time by Ceaser and the driver Carlos. In the car, Ceaser brought us upto date with a brief history of Mexico and endangered animals. They also provided us with cold water and snacks which I appreciated so much! First stop was at rest stop where we had the chance to use the restroom and buy coffee. Then we headed to the pyramids right before the rest of tourists arrived where Ceaser took time to explain history thoroughly. After that, we headed to Valladolid where we had the best food ever and even had some time to stroll around the colonial city. Ceaser was there with us all throughout. Lastly, we stopped by the Cenote Xux Ha which was not crowded at the time we arrived and we all appreciated the exclusivity. Overall, HIGHLY recommend! The Group was awesome! The Guide was awesome! The Tour was awesome! Safe travels.

The tour was nice overall, comfortable bus, and our guide Edwin was very nice and knowledgeable, expect a bit of delay if doing hotel pickup, but no problem overall. The best parts were as expected Chichen Itza and the Cenote. The meal is the least exciting, but we knew ahead of time from other reviews, and did not come for the food. I would do it again, it was a great tour.

This is a great value tour and Chichen Itza makes up for an incredible experience! Just keep in mind this is a large shared tour, meaning lots of people along with you, some time for pick up an d drop-off, and some stops at places like a souvenir shop

This was a fun and informative tour that starts very early but worth it. Great included buffet lunch, the cenote was clean and beautiful, overall I highly recommend this entire tour.

The tour was very well organised and the guide was very well prepared with loads of facts and interesting context.
