Everything went pretty well. I was just surprised that we also visited Tulum as I had picked up that tour specifically because I had already visited Tulum and it was only supposed to be Coba. Apart from that the tour was good, Chris was our guide and he was very nice despite a level of English that could get a little bit better for easier understanding.

Nice educational tour

Carlos and Carlos have given a fun educational tour. It was all very interesting. Too bad we didn't go to a maya village as described.
