It is a very long but a very fun trip. You have to calculate from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. (& you spend at least 12 hours of it in the car) Gennaro our tour guide made the very best of our day however the ride with him was the funniest ever and he is a great DJ!

Excursion great, but not as described by Getyourguide. The cenote is missing, but you visit a crocodile station, which they breed and release animals as adults. Arki the guide was nice and explained everything well

Great experience and definitely recommended! Except for the long drive, everything was very well planned. We didn't go to the cenote.

Perfect trip. Worth every euro. Something amazing. I sincerely recommend it

Nice day, very nice and cheerful guide. Tasty lunch. I recommend.
