We recently did a tour with Nefi (Helaman's son) to Chichen Itza and Tulum and it was excellent!! I was hesitant at first with the price, but am so glad we did it because it was worth every penny. Our tour felt like a private tour as there was only 5 people in our group, as opposed to the large... More

Helaman and his Son-in-law did 2 tours for our group, Tulum and Costa Maya in 2 days. They were the best tour guides we had as they were so knowledgeable. The guide in Belize couldn't answer our questions because he didn't know. I learned so much from Helaman, he really knows what he's talking about, he's very humble and has... More

We had several people from Utah recommend this tour company. They are geared toward LDS church members but will accommodate anyone. They were very knowledgable of the sights and very professional. We took the Tulum, Coba, and cenotes tour. We will definately return to Cancun and use Helaman tours again!! Highly recommend this tour company!!

We booked a tour with Helaman last week from Playa del Carmen. He was such a wonderful tour guide and had so much knowledge about the history of the Mayan people and the area we were touring. We were with a group of friends and were able to book a private tour. Helaman picked us up from our resort, transported... More

My husband and I traveled to the Mayan Riviera in January 2014. Helaman was highly recommended to us by friends from church who had been on one of his tours a few years ago. He was punctual, friendly and very knowledgeable. We went to Coba and Tulum. The day trip was the highlight of my vacation. If I could go... More

Nephi was our tour guide on Jan. 2, 2015. He was on-time and very accommodating with our family: my wife and I with our 4 kids ages 8,10,13,18. It was so nice to have an all-inclusive tour-guide for the day that took care of all driving, tolls, taxes, entry fees, lunch, drinks, and even a snack on the way back... More

A friend referred us to Helaman Tours. I contacted Helaman and he responded very quickly. His price was better than the competitor. Helaman's son, Nephi, was our tour guide. Nephi is very friendly and very knowledgeable. He was on time and made the experience very enjoyable. What I liked most about Helaman Tours is that we booked our own private... More

We spent two days with Helaman during our stay in Mexico (Dec 2014). We stayed at the El Cid in Puerto Morelos. We visited Chichen Itza, Cenote, Ek Balam, Coba and Tulum. We also spent time in a working Mayan church. Helaman was very knowledgeable and delightful to work with. I was able to understand who the Mayans were and... More

We went on two LDS Tours while we were in Cancun. While Helaman's van was a little older/hotter, he we definitely more engaging as a tour guide. Would highly recommend him.

We took a tour of Chitzen Itza and Ek Balam with Helaman recently (Dec 2014). We had a great time. Helaman shared many inspiring insights that helped us better understand the importance of symbolism to this ancient culture, and how that symbolism is derived from gospel tradition. As impressive and awe inspiring as Chichen Itza was, I would have to... More
