What people are saying about Tulum

This tour was with our guide Jonas at 10AM. Our family aged from from 9 years to 59 years were met by him and taken around some local taco places, plus juices/smoothies, tamale, mole and desert ice cream. The tour went around places without tourists but felt very safe. Jonas was brilliant with my 9 yr old son and helped with the group of six crossing the road etc. He was very knowledgeable about the area. He also took some very high quality pictures which were emailed to us after. Highly recommend this tour, if you are staying in a hotel outside of Tulum, getting a taxi is easy enough to the location.

The tour was nice overall, comfortable bus, and our guide Edwin was very nice and knowledgeable, expect a bit of delay if doing hotel pickup, but no problem overall. The best parts were as expected Chichen Itza and the Cenote. The meal is the least exciting, but we knew ahead of time from other reviews, and did not come for the food. I would do it again, it was a great tour.

This is a great value tour and Chichen Itza makes up for an incredible experience! Just keep in mind this is a large shared tour, meaning lots of people along with you, some time for pick up an d drop-off, and some stops at places like a souvenir shop

This was a fun and informative tour that starts very early but worth it. Great included buffet lunch, the cenote was clean and beautiful, overall I highly recommend this entire tour.

amazing tour. definitely go for the early 5am start. Super Frank was amazing, very knowledgeable. definitely bring food/snacks too!!
