This was such a great tour! Air conditioned bus, right on time, the Archaeological Site was awesome (muggy and buggy though - dress appropriately and bring bug spray), the tour guide was as a sweet as can be and so nice to have a local to tell us about the area. They provided an awesome lunch of vegetarian burritos and juice half way through. We then took a boat to Sian Ka'an and did the float tour which was unlike anything i've ever done, so beautiful! They also provided a light breakfast granola bar that was homemade from locals and it was so good! Book this tour for sure.

Magical float down the canal
Natalie_M
, Jan 2022
Floating down the canal was my favorite experience of our entire trip to Tulum! It was totally magical. We really appreciated our guides Guillermo and Iver. Both were incredibly knowledgeable. They made the trip into and fun for my kiddos. The food was homemade and delicious. The only downside was spending a fair amount of time in the van picking up all the guests and the returning them but not sure how that can be avoided. We were on the beachfront so first and last stop but it was an amazing day and I can’t recommend this tour enough.

Sian Kaan and Mangrove
Doha_I

Alberto, our guide, was amazing. He had so much information to share. He narrated historical events and archeological facts from a unique perspective. He made the tour very exciting and informative. He used audiovisual aids (IPAD) and audio to show us references and further explain the findings. The group was the perfect size so we were very entertained but not overcrowded. We saw animals as well. The nature, the lagoons and the mangrove experience were all awe inspiring. Overall, I would recommend this tour especially with Alberto.

Found a monkey in the trees, saw the temple, climbed a watch tower in the jungle, and floated down a lazy River wearing a life jacket as a diaper. It was incredible and Lea was a fun instructor!

Wonderful float down the canal

We were picked up at our hotel by our guide Luigi and our driver. Luigi was super friendly and knowledgeable. Our group had a great time on this tour. Highly recommend it, it has a good combination of walking through the nature reserve, a Mayan ruin and also the highlight was floating down the canal. Everyone really loved this tour! Just remember to bring bug spray and sun tan lotion.
