Our guide Marco was incredibly informed, spoke with great detail and passion, and kept his energy positive and upbeat throughout the long trip. The day was well organised, the tour fascinating, and the cenote swim an absolute joy. The only negative points: Get Your Guide website said we’d leave Tulum at 730. We left at 8:15am and began our tour at nearly 11am. The sun was so hot I got a bad migraine and was exhausted by 1pm. Would strongly prefer to start a tour like this at 930am latest. Our driver drove above the speed limit (!)… made us queasy. Lunch was very light and more like an appetiser than a full meal, considering the price we paid ($130 per person).

I recently booked a 1day excursion from Tulum to Chichen Itza and back in Aug 2021. The ruins, cenote and town were absolutely phenomenal. Transportation was timely and well organized. The guide and driver also provided water, light fruit snacks and good commentary. I would recommend more time at the ruins and less at the Town we visited for lunch. While everything was tasty I would have preferred more time to explore the main attraction. Price four our tour was reasonable and I would recommend this trip to friends

César was an amazing guide, and I really enjoyed every second of this trip. César was so knowledgeable and passionate about the histories, and it made this trip so special. I can’t say enough good things. Each place was like stepping back in time, our guide really helped paint an amazing picture of the history of each place. This was amazing!
