Incredibly beautiful! The Mayan guide told us in detail about all the places we visited! It was in both English and Russian! We stopped to eat in a fabulous place!

Wonderful trip! I loved the places I visited and loved the gata baking in the garden.

Good Tour. A little boring in parts. Best part: Alphabet alley.
