Eugenio was an exceptional guide, he welcomed everyone in the group and introduced us all to the others in the group which broke the ice and we felt we really got to know everyone. The day was relaxed, no wasted time but not rushed either. First went to swim with the turtles via a short boat trip, saw two turtles and loads of colourful fish in the reef followed by a cruise past the Tulum Mayan ruins, then lunch on the go to 4 cenotes, swimming in a couple of them. We bought the photos at the end, Eugenio was using a GoPro camera throughout which we eventually received the photos 12 days later after repeated requests, not sure what the delay was but some great photos and videos (via drop box). Thoroughly recommend this trip.

Es war eine tolle Tour! Sehr netter und kompetenter Guide! Der Fahrer fuhr sehr gut und gewissenhaft! Wir haben mehrere Schildkröten und sogar Mantas gesehen! Der Besuch der Cenoten war super cool! Kristallklares Wasser und viele bunte Fische!! Die Tour kann ich sehr empfehlen!!!

Una experiencia increíble e inolvidable. Recomendadísima a todo aquel que quiera vivir algo diferente y especial. Nuestro guía Gonzalo fue muy amable y nos llevó a los mejores ricones. Empezamos visitando el arrecife y vimos diferentes tipos de peces. Y tras esa visita empezó la aventura… comenzamos a interactuar con mantarayas grandes y luego nos visitaron dos tortugas. Fue increíble!! Todavía seguimos con la emoción del momento. El capitán y el marinero fueron muy serviciales e hicieron de la experiencia un sueño. Tras esta gran experiencia visitamos tres cenotes y nos bañamos en dos de ellos, siempre acompañados de Gonzalo, que nos hizo unas fotos increíbles. Los cenotes eran muy distintos: En uno de ellos el fondo era una gran cueva que impresionaba. El abierto tenía una fauna y una flora marina preciosa. Durante el viaje el chofer fue también muy servicial: nos ofreció bebidas y snack y nos dejó un cargador para nuestra cámara. Además fueron muy puntuales. 100% recomendado!!
