Tulum Rising - Early Bird Experience - Ruins-Cenote - Lagoon - Downtown Tulum. starstarstarstarstar

The trip was absolutely fantastic! We were treated to the most beautiful home-cooked traditional meal and had a blast for the day checking Mayan ruins, splashing in a Cenote and seeing Spider Monkeys!

Tailor made fun experience in Riviera Maya (w/private transport) starstarstarstarstar

This tour was amazing! Just four of us in a mini-bus, with Saul as our tour guide. It was Saul's knowledge, energy, and enthusiasm that made this such a great trip. He made even the long drives great fun, and always had terrific suggestions on things to do and see and eat. The eight-day trip was focused mostly on Mayan archeological sites, and Saul had very in-depth knowledge about the history and the architecture. However, he was just as knowledgeable about other aspects of Mexican culture and culture and instilled a deep desire in us to return to this fascinating country. I will be recommending Saul as a tour guide to everyone I know, and hope that I have the chance to travel with him again.

¡Wonderful Chichen-itzá! starstarstarstarstar

Highly, highly recommend! We went to Cobá and also the following day went to Chichen Itza. Saul told us everything we would need/want to know and a whole lot more about the culture & locals. He went above and beyond giving us the best Mayan cultural experience. The Cenotes we took us too were out of this world! One of the best tours I have ever done.

Coba + Mayan jungle adventure! starstarstarstarstar

Really amazing experience. Climbing to the Coba pyramid and see the green ocean was breathtaking. Spiritual ritual with local Mayans in the sauna was challenging and inspiring at the same time. Latter on the local Mayan cuisine and rest at the nearby cenote area was replenishing and refreshing. Guides are super cool with a good attitude and sense of humor, also they are very erudite about local culture, history, and people, so expect to learn a lot. Strongly recommend
