Our tour guide, Joel, was very well informed and did a great job showing us around the ruins while also making sure that we knew the background information about what we were seeing. The entire time we were with him and Jorge, they were nothing but friendly, encouraging, and kind. Overall my daughters and I 100% recommend this tour!

I highly recommend this tour and the company - we would definitely use them again if we were looking to tour the Yucatan again. All of our logistics were taken care of from the beginning to the end of the day and the guides were highly knowledgeable about the places we went, Mayan history, and the culture of the Yucatan peninsula. The majority of our tour was spoke Spanish so there was one guide for the Spanish speakers and one guide who spoke English with us all day, which was far beyond what we had expected. All of the sites were as advertised and the van was comfortable. I can't imagine getting a better deal for the price and the quality of the tour.
