Word limit on review. Could sing praises far more than this allows. Carlos was incredible - so knowledgable and friendly. He was Mayan so truly knew. We were also greeted by a Mayan Sharman for the ceremony and the local member of staff. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys and many awesome birds and plants. Adults and babies! All explained brilliantly by both guys. We rappelled down to and swam in the cenote which was bliss, we walked through beautiful jungle with experts in listening to and explaining about the jungle animals. Take swimwear and towel. We open canoed across the lagoon and ziplined across it. On the way back, because our hotel was nearer than Cancun, Carlos kindly took us to a lovely local taco place. Snacks and drinks on journey too! Everything we could have asked for and more. We felt 100% safe, comfortable and delighted at all times. Thank you so much for a fabulous trip!

Carlos Solis made the tour authentic, fun and meaningful.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. And I would highly recommend it to everyone! Our guide Carlos Solis was authentic and professional. His knowledge of Tulum was inspiring. His Mayan background made the stories poignant. Then at the Ecological Park we had fun that exceeded my expectations. As the name implies, it is a natural preserve. So it was the real deal. There were many cenotes and a beautiful small lake where we zip lined through natures beauty. And lunch was prepared by some of the Mayan people living in the park. You could not ask for a more authentic (non commercial) tour. Thanks to our driver Oscar whose quiet and steady driving got us home safely. And thank you to Carlos. It was an honor to meet you.

Absolutely awesome!

The tour through Tulum and the subsequent stay in Park Tankah were an unforgettable experience. We were picked up directly at the hotel and brought to a kind of assembly point from where we continued with other tour participants. Tulum is simply beautiful and our guide Mauricio made the tour informative but also always fun. However, the visit to Park Tankah was the clear highlight for us. Wonderful nature, zip lines and swimming and paddling in different cenotes. This tour was really worth every penny. The visit to the Mayan village and the traditional buffet prepared there were also excellent. We were consistently satisfied :)
