We had tours from Helaman Tours to both Chaachoben and Tulum. Helaman was our guide one day, and his son-in-law, Carlos the 2nd day. They both were very knowledgeable and friendly. On the bus to the ruins they prepared us for what we were going to see. They had a good perspective of the Mayan culture and how it relates... More

Was with Helaman's son Nephi for the tour of the ruins of Chichen Izta. He was very knowledgeable, funny, and even treated us to fresh pineapple with chili powder and lime juice - incredible taste. The next day was with Helaman most of the tour of the ruins in Tulum - he knew how to bring the ruins alive with... More

We booked a tour yesterday thru Helaman Tours. This is the second time I've been to the Yucatan and gone on tours with this company. The first time Helaman was our guide and yesterday his brother Lemuel was the guide. Both were excellent tours. We loved the experience and booked another tour for Tulum and snorkeling on Monday.

We loved our tour of Tulum with Helaman Tours. Carlos was our guide for the day and it was a glorious day. Carlos is an archaeologist and really knows his stuff. It was myself and my two gandkids- age 16 and 11. I've been to Tulum before- but wanted to experience it from a LDS perspective. It was everything I'd... More

My wife and I took a tour with Helaman and we had a wonderful time. Helaman was on time to pick us up at our resort and was very friendly with us on the drive down to Ek Balam and Chichen Izta. He explained a lot of wonderful information with us on the drive down to the ruins and we... More

I loved the tour with Helaman. He was on time, and took great care of us. The information we received was way more than I had expected. Helaman picked us up at our resort and drove to Chichen Itza. He gave fantastic background about the area before we arrived and the wealth of knowledge flowed. I would highly recommend using... More

Helaman came highly recommended to us by my Sister-In-Law. He definitely lived up to his reputation. We prearranged a tour of Chichen Itza and Tulum with Helaman. He picked us up right on time at 7:40am. On the lengthy drive to Chichen Itza, Helaman went into great detail explaining how the Mayan culture was tied to Judaism and Christianity. His... More

This trip may be the last time our entire family will be able to travel like this together because some of us are getting older and Helaman made it wonderful! especially for our older members who tried things like zip lines and snorkeling that i never thought they would do. I will always be grateful for those memories. Helaman jumping... More

I can't wait to go to Cancun again. I think my Tour with Nefi was my favorite experience for my whole trip. Looking forward to doing it again in a few years. Thanks Nefi.

Helaman is uniquely qualified as a tour guide providing insights into Mayan religious beliefs and possible connections with Christianity. I learned so much and his insights allowed me a connection to the ruins, people and culture that I would have not made otherwise.
