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.

The tour is super complete, although you have to know how to distribute the free time they give so that you have a chance to take photos and enjoy some places like the cenote. The guides Alan and Edwin were very attentive and the explanations they gave were very interesting, they always answered any questions that arose and filled us with extra cultural data. Every once in a while they offered us water and the food that was already included was delicious. The best thing is that you don't have to worry about anything, just enjoy the ride and the explanations, I traveled alone and I thought it was very good even to meet other travelers and make contacts.

Great day with the visit of the ruins of Tulum with the famous beach and the ruins. Visit with a guide then free time to have time to take pictures. Then meal on site before departure for Coba and the ruins with the famous pyramid with 120 steps and 42 m, great bike taxi ride. And on the way to the cenote Mariposa for a good end-of-day swim. We are traveling with a 2 year old child and this activity was perfectly in line with his age.
