What people are saying about Yucatan Peninsula

Cesar was a great guide to have. I highly recommend you listen to what he says about the heat in Chichen Itza as it can get extremely hot. He was very attentive to his group. If you ever think you would rather spend more time in one area, just plan another trip back there and ask his advice.

Alfredo was an excellent guide! Transport was right on time and while we had a lot of stops I felt it was adequate for what you wanted to see. Cenote is absolutely beautiful. Make sure you bring cash for incidental costs (you have to pay 60 pesos for a life jacket rental at the cenote)

Martin and Dinelo have made the day so enjoyable. Very knowledgeable and interesting! He had the day funny and took into account how hot the day is getting! Would highly recommend

One of the best tours I've done in all my travelling. Cesar and Julian were incredible. just the right amount of energy and inclusiveness

Great tour, experienced and saw a lot. The cenote was breathtaking and refreshing. The food was good. The guide Martin was great
