  • "Not only does it make your journey through the park easier and faster, it's also a good exercise." See review
  • "You are given some cookies, a banana and water for breakfast but I still recommend eating before leaving if you can." See review

Not as advertised, however.

This tour is not as advertised, however it was still a great experience. They pick you up and drop you off at a multiple tour location where you stand in line and get a colored wrist band for your tour. Then wait and get in a van with others. This was a red flag for me, but I digress. While on the way to the first stop, assuming it would be coba, we were headed to tulum. When we got off, no breakfast mind you, I spoke with one of our guides. I told him and showed him what I had booked, and what was included. He was confused...... He told me, due to time, we couldn't do both the cenote and beach, it would be one or the other. I was not happy since I paid more for all 4 experiences. Tulum was beautiful, however I felt kind of rushed through and didn't see all the buildings. Then we headed to Coba. No where in the description of the tour does it say you MUST rent a bike or hire a driver to get to the main site. But you have to. Its a mile, very walkable, but we were made to rent. $8 for a bike and $17 for a driver. The site was beautiful, the bike ride was smooth enough. After was lunch buffet. Very delicious but ALL the tours go to this restaurant, so it can get crowded and some food will go quickly. However, there were lots of options and it was all good, authentic Mexican food. There's a gift shop next to the place we went, and I thought the prices were a bit high. After we were asked if we wanted to go to the beach or the cenote. The tour took us BACK to Tulum, where some guests got off to go to the beach, then, up the road to the centoe for the rest of us. The Centoe was beautiful!! Crystal clear, refreshing water. Multiple places to jump in. If you are not a good swimmer, they rent life jackets. There's a small restaurant on site along with bathrooms and changing rooms. Now, as a huge planner and someone who reads reviews seriously, I was really disappointed. However, the guides, Alfredo and Pastor, made it they best they could. I was with another couple who had booked the same tour as myself and they were also shocked and upset it wasn't the same tour. We were provided with a light breakfast after mentioning something, which was nice. I feel like everyone on that tour, were duped into believing it was something else. As well, everyone on that tour. I wouldnt book through this company again. While I loved out guides, I wasnt provided with that I had booked, nor a refund of any kind.

The entire experience was very good. If you want to experience a lot in a short period of time, this is a great price. If you want to learn all about the history in detail, choose a different tour. The driver was a speed demon, passing more than most would feel comfortable with and may have been practicing for some Mexican Daytona. Be prepared for a good workout if you climb the pyramid at Cobá, bring more water. You may also want to bring a small flashlight and a waterproof camera for the Cenote. It can be dark in there and you want to see as much as you can. Water shoes for your feet if they are sensitive. Tulum is beautiful, mostly the beach. You don’t have as much time at the Ruins, unless you want it. Bring your towel from the hotel. It is a long day, but you will experience a lot. I rated the tour excellent because it was a good price for all the sites. If you’re picky and want a lot of education along the way, consider another tour, perhaps it was just the guide?

Great day at a great price

We really enjoyed this day out. Each part had something special to remember, our driver (Anthony) and tour guide (Obet) were excellent and made the day relaxing and enjoyable. Even though the tour ended with a visit to a beach and we'd already had several days relaxing on Playacar beach, we just took the time to unwind at the beach bar, have a cocktail and enjoy the views of a different area. It was really reasonably priced too in comparison to other tours on offer at our hotel and around Playa del Carmen. We thoroughly recommend this tour.

I tried leaving a review after the tour but couldn't with my phone. I am glad. I would have rated it 5 stars either way, but after taking another tour in the region, I have another level of appreciation. George was our tour operator. His English was great and he was very informative. He was very passionate about the Myan's and their culture. This tour fits in so many things and is such a great value. It is also small and very personal. We had 10 people in our group and they did a great job of making us all feel welcomed. George spoke Spanish and English and even greeted a German couple in their native language. I can not recommend it enough!!!! If you are in Playa and have any interest in either of these ruins, do this!!!

Bad tour guide

The tour guide we have is not great. He seems to be rushing everything. He would walk really fast and leaving us behind. Do not recommend Coba and the cave. Seems to be waste of time, especially you are only staying at Cancun for very short time period. Also the lunch place is horrible, I could bearly eat anything. Do not recommend this tour. Bad experience.

the long trip started early but you want to get to Coba before the busses come. great trip, only part I didn't like (and no one did) was that at 4:00 we were ready to go home and they stopped at this beach for 2 hours (we all are staying at beach resorts).

My husband and I loved every single moment of this excursion. Our guide George was great and so was the driver Adrian. We particularly enjoyed the swim in the cave - unfortunately I cannot recall the name of the woman who guided us there, but she was amazing too! We were a group of 6, perfect size to enjoy this tour fully! Highly recommended!

A really fantastic trip! Our guide, Jorge (hope I've spelt that right!) was absolutely brilliant - informative, funny and an all round great guy. The trip packs a lot in but you get a good amount of time at each place. The trip is exactly as described, which you sometimes don't get with other providers. We had an amazing time. There is a lot of walking and we are knackered today, but it was so worth it. Thanks for a great day!!
