The tour guides really make or break the tour! And in this trip they MADE IT! The guides, especially Raymundo was exceptional: he explained everything in the scorching heat giving us a complete understanding of the history, culture and life of the places we were visiting. The other guides with him helped keep track of the people and offered water for free to make sure we were all well hydrated: it showed great care! We spent the morning in Tulum, we then went to Coba and experienced the park on an enjoyable bike ride! The site is very large and you can cover more ground on bike than by foot (if you dont like to bike (rental 60 pesos), they have little wagons where someone will bike you around for a little more money) but it beats walking in the heat. This fee is on you-bring pesos. After Coba, they took us to a cenote but it didnt have that cavern feel, and we hit traffic on the way to Playa Del Carmen at the end of the day, so we only had an hour to powerwalk the touristy district.
First stop is Tulum, the ancient Maya city perched on a cliff overlooking the Mexican Caribbean sea. Your expert bilingual guide will share fascinating information about the archaeological site, its importance in history and the day to day life of its inhabitants at its peak. Hear all about the past cultures and the theories of their demise. Next up is a visit to the Hidden Treasures for a swim in the refreshing waters of Cenote La Gloria. Cenotes are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula, natural sinkholes in limestone caves that were sacred to the ancient Maya people. You will then savor an authentic regional lunch buffet to recharge for the last stop of the day. The last part of this incredible journey is a guided tour of the Coba Mayan ruins. Still mostly hidden beneath the jungle foliage, Coba is the site of the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan, climb to the top for out of this world view...
The tour was organized and enjoyable. The sites we saw were fantastic. We are vegan, and at lunch they offered vegan selections!! This does not usually happen, so was great! Guides were knowledgeable, and they took good care of us!!
On this 12-hour excursion, explore the Chichen Itza archaeological zone. With a specialist guide, you'll discover the important role that the city played in Mayan civilization. Today the site is still considered sacred by the Mayan people of the Yucatan. Like many of the cities of ancient Mexico, Chichen Itza was abandoned and its monuments became hidden in the jungle growth. Chichen Itza is on the UNESCO World Heritage list and has also been named one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
Jam-packed day. Activities and tours were great. A little disappointed the tour ran long (scheduled for 12 hours but took 14 hours).

Went on this tour on our last day in cancun. Loved every minute of it! It's fast paced and you get about an hour to hour and a half at each destination, but that was more than enough to take everything in without feeling rushed. Richy and Raymond were very fun and courteous and accommodated us with everything we needed. Can not say enough good things about our guides. Small groups which is a plus. We were 10 total and everyone had a great time. Raymond advised us on what's worth doing and what not to do at each destination and that was a big plus. We went and did the right things the right way. I would definitely recommend this tour. Be ready for a busy but really fun day.
English speaking guide more than great! Santiago is a magical guide who loves his job and masters languages superbly! he made us discover and appreciate the local culture and shared information that we would never have had without his presence! the activity is sublime from start to finish thank you!
All tour guides (Cecilia, Oscar, and Luis) are well experienced and know the sites very well. they're outstanding!!! Our tour took us to Tulum, Coba, Cenotes, and a brief tour to chocolate and tequila tasting. We were able to see and do so much. We totally recommend this tour.
Amazing trip! The tour guides, Ricardo and Raymond, were energetic and knowledgeable and they made a genuine effort to make certain that everybody had a good time. I enjoyed the entire experience.
Get your guide is an excellent application, our Raymondo guide was super nice and very enriching with this knowledge!
