One word, Marush (Munuz), check the spelling, I am not sure! He made the tour. He is THE best tour guide ever. Since he is an archeologist and professor and adventure seeker, this allowed us a different less tourist perspective. We saw things others could not see because it was not allowed. We heard stories about his native people! He... More

From start to finish, this tour experience was absolutely outstanding! Our tour guide, Munuz, is an archaeologist and professor whose passion about his country and our tour sites made this trip unforgettable. His knowledge and detail of these tour locations gave us ,I feel, a unique insight into the Mayan culture. He rarely stopped talking for the twelve hours we... More

Booked this tour because we wanted someone to take us exactly where we wanted to go and not mess about with all the side-trips and add-ons. The tour consisted of Chitzen Itza, Cenote, Ek Balam and Valladoid. The car picked us up early at 7.30am and we were warmly greeted by driver and guide who provided a wealth of information... More

I booked trip to Rio Lagartos and Ek Balam through Mayans' Explorers online, before coming to Riviera Maya for a week in September. We (me and my wife) were picked up just off the resort main lobby by our guide Enrique and driver Marcelo (that was his name, I believe). During the long way to Rio Lagartos (it was the... More

We research tours excessively, and can be hard to impress. We were very impressed with the company, especially our guide and driver, Murux and Diego. The basics: Diego and Murux were prompt. The van was clean, comfortable and well-maintained. They offered us plenty of cold bottled water throughout the day. Expertise: Murux is a PhD prepared archaeologist, specializing in translating...

As there are TONS of companies that do excursions, I am the type of guy that does TONS of research on EVERYTHING before traveling. I found Mayans' Explorers and long story short... going with this company is an EASY decision. It was the only company that offered everything we wanted to do for an amazing price (Chichen Itza AND El... More

My friends and I took the Mayan Experience tour with Mayans' Explorers earlier this month. Gudelio was great with communicating via email prior to booking of the tour and answering all of my questions promptly. He also was able to move the tour to the date of my choosing, with the other party's consent. That was a nice touch. Luis,... More

My husband & teenage daughter & I did this tour in August. It was the most incredible value...it was nearly 10 hours total, with several activities in 3 separate locations: snorkeling in Akumal, zip lining & canoeing in Tankah, then a private tour of the Mayan ruins at Tulum, plus an authentic hot Mayan lunch. Our guide was incredibly attentive,... More
