Nice with a half day trip. To have time to see most and best and then back. We got to see and hear about the Mayan culture, see ruins and the fantastic beach in Tulum. Then we finished with a brisk walk back to go to a cenote and swim!

Good trip overall

We enjoyed the trip however we were spoken to quite rudely by one of the couriers. There was not enough room on the truck back from the cenote so we had to wait for the next one. We were then spoken to like it was our fault that we were late back. If you put too many guests on a trip this is what happens and it is not acceptable to speak to them in that manner. Spoilt an otherwise good day.
