Both Get Our Guide and EKINOX TOURS get 5/5 stars. Get Our Guide had many communications with me to ensure our pick up location and time is clear and confirmed with vendor. The tour was absolutely worth the money and time. Pick up was on time. Mario, our tour guide, gave instructions and was very passionate about the Mayan culture and it’s people. We had the BEST time at the cenote (wish it was longer). Playa del Carmen was charming. Would definitely recommend Ekinox Tours and will definitely use them again next time I am in the Yucatán!

AMAZING! Chichen Itza, tequila tastning and the centote is great - 100% worth a visit! We only had 30 min in Valladolid, but great city to see, just wish we had a bit more time. The only downside is that the tour is heavily impacted by the guide who wants to sell everthing in every stop - got super annoying. Besides this the guides English was not good, so recommend to read up on everything about Chichen Itza beforehand.

The experience as a whole was amazing Our guide Ulyses was amazing! His interpretation skills were perfect. He was able to switch between english and spanish in a really amazing way. Very funny and entertaining, he was providing really important information. The tour to Chichen Itza, the cenote, linch and vallaloid was perfect! It’s worth every penny!

Great!!!! Mauricio is a mayan narive who told us many interesting stories. Also Suzan was great.

Great, easy going. No stress, awesome guides. Great food a great way for a first timer like us
