The guide knows in depth the history of the towns of the region and the ruins of Tulum; hotel pick-up was at the agreed time; the two cenotes that we visited are beautiful and there were not many people and in the end the food is delicious.

It was a great trip. We had a great guide, he was funny and explained everything very well and gave good tips. Please don't forget sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, but above all bring water.

The Gallo guide and the driver Ivan are excellent. Very interesting and beautiful activity. The excellent buffet. The attention in all the places very good. Highly recommended.

Great experience, comfortable, clean buses, friendly staff, very attentive guide and ready to resolve any concerns, a lot of knowledge of Mayan history and culture

Highly recommended, long and I would remove Valladolid and the Mayan village (souvenirs at prohibitive and exorbitant prices) in favor of a shorter route.
