Quality price very well, we hired an express visit to Tulum, they picked us up at 09:00 they made us a very complete tour, Lee was the one who attended us, and the truth is that great! At 13:00 we were back at the hotel, gave us time for the guided tour, a while for us, bathing on the beach, seeing some shops ... a success to hire with them, highly recommended.

It is an excursion in which you see fauna and flora of the jungle, you can drive a jeep, snorkel in the coral reef, swim in crystal clear waters ....... and if you are lucky see crocodiles.

This trip was fantastic, Lee and the all staff was very nice and kind.
