Our guide Maria was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Had a fabulous time in a small group of just 12. Hotel pickup/drop-off went smoothly and as we were a small group had a later start as no going round loads of pickups.

Very interesting trip in a small group with our amazing tour guide Jesus. Coba was a great experience. The Cenote and Maya Village was ok - more like typical tourist place to sell you souvenirs but again learned some things about the Mayan culture thanks to Jesus.
