All in all a great experience, Alan and Normah were great, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Cons and things to pay attention: The tour separates after Tulum, and heads in Coba in another bus. Before Coba you will be Informed that the government certified tour guides are not welcome inside, so you have to go on your own, being PUSHED, A LOT, to rent a bike or a bike taxi, because you won't have enough time on your own to explore the site. Well, lies. it's 2022, so Google maps it's your best friend in such situations. 25 mins to the end of the site with everything in between, and 25mins back, leaving you time for even a refreshment, no bike scam included :)

Nice guides Julio and Sammy put a lot of effort into it. Tour was reasonable. Pick up from the hotel worked. Due to the fact that the trip to Tulum was a large group at first, the trip took a little longer. We especially liked Coba. Definitely take a bike to the pyramid!

Just the right pace and sufficient but not surplus time at each stop. Time keeping was good, all activities ran on schedule. Our guide Professor Balan did a great job, learnt some new things about the history of the sites. Note that the tour doesn’t include a guided portion at Coba. This is due to the fact that the local community understandably wants to give these tours themselves. Our Coba bicycle taxi driver fortunately gave some information on the sites along the way inside the archeological site. All in all. Good value and an informative and fun day out.
