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.

We recently visited Playa Del Carmen Mexico. I contacted Helaman through email and he got right back with me so the whole tour was arranged before we arrived. It was really nice not worrying about time, cost, etc. He picked us up at our resort right on time and we had a great day! Very flexible. We visited 2 sites,... More

We did tours on two different days with Helaman Tours. As we had two very different experiences from two different tour guides I have decided to review them separately. This review covers our tour to Tulum with Helaman. We paid $250.00 US cash (plus tip) for a private half-day tour that was just my wife, myself, and Helaman. Helaman is... More

If you see the reviews, I don't answer them, because I don't have the time to do it and I apologize because of that. however this review needs a response. It's really contradictory what He says, because if you don't like a service. Why you pay and even tip for it? and mainly if I have in my website that... More

Helman is an excellent guide. You can tell he loves what he does and really wants to give you the best experience. He does everything from giving you cold water taking your family photos and even helped our young ones enjoy their time. We did Elk Balm which is fantastic and his knowledge of the Mayans really opened up the... More

On this trip we had our six year old daughter and three year old son with us (as well as friends with another six year old boy). Needless to say, we had no idea how the day would progress... but, we ended up having a fantastic day! Helaman picked us up on time and educated us on our way to... More

Our family of 5 took a tour with Helaman on April 9, 2014. It was the best day of our trip. I highly recommend the itinerary that we had. We left our hotel at 7:30 in the morning. Helaman was right on time. The tour bus was very nice. There were 11 of us on the tour. He also provides... More

We had a great time on a tour of Chichen Itza and Tulum last week. We booked via email with Helaman. Jonathan was our tour guide and he did a great job! We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Helaman Tours to any LDS members visiting the Cancun area.
