This was really fabulous. My teenage daughter and I went in the late evening and had the 30 min massage as well as the time in the baths. It was peaceful, the baths were amazing and the overall experience was excellent. A great way to end the day, very relaxing and something different from the usual sightseeing activities.

The ambiance was great, they served nice mint tea. We enjoyed the cold plunge and the hot pools. And I really enjoyed my 15- minute massage with Oscar. He was very professional and helped relieve some knots in my shoulders. It was cool to see the ornate walls and the music was calm and relaxing as well. Worth the price!

The tour guide, Maria de la O was very knowledgeable, informative, and engaging. We have learned a lot. I highly recommend the tour and the guide. Maria explained everything very nicely in an engaging manner.

Imma was a great guide and provided a lot of insight and was very friendly and kind. The Royal Chapel to me was amazing. It is a shame they dont allow to take any pictures. Highly recommended

This was a phenomenal tour! JJ was such a knowledgeable and passionate guide, he made the place come alive! We learned so much. Thank you!!
