I've been to the Mayan Riviera four times and tried various tour options. This one is by far the best. The moderate extra cost is well worth it for the small group size and personal attention. We did the Chichen Itza + Cenote + Izamal tour. Our driver was very skilled and our guide Marux went out of his way... More

We have just returned from the Mayan. We travelled with some friends so there was 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 teens. We booked a private tour for 8 with Mayan's Explorers. Do not hesitate to book with this company. I was so impressed with everything. The booking process, the communication via email (gets back to you within 24... More

Our tour guide Enrique Alvarez and driver Miguel Metina were a fountain of information and made the tour so much more enjoyable with their friendliness and stories of the region. I've... More

My husband and I were interested in visiting Chitchen Itza while in Mexico. We signed up with Mayan Explorers for a shared tour to reduce the cost. We were paired with another couple and were therefore able to split the cost. Our tour was timed, such that we arrived at each site in advance of the large coach tour groups,... More

We booked a custom, private tour with Mayan Explorers. My husband was unable to go with us at the last minute and they adjusted the rate even though we did not expect them too! My 4 kids, 9-18, and I had an amazing day of education about the Mayan Culture. Dr. Maroush is a wonderful storyteller and guide. What REALLY... More

We decided to have a private tour. Chichen itza and Ek Balam and we are so glad we did. We have been on tours all over the world and this was by far the best. Our guide and driver both knew their stuff and made the day so interesting. We were looked after from start to finish, the food was... More

This was definitely the highlight of my time in Mexico. The tour consisted of three very different experiences. The fresh water snorkeling, the cave experience, and snorkeling out in the ocean was simply majestic. When snorkeling in the ocean, Nacho (our guide) made everyone feel safe and spotted a baracuda, a tortuga, and several stingrays. It was a wonderful experience.

We chose the Cool Tour because we were looking to swim and snorkel, as well as learn about Mayan history. Our tour guide, Enrique, was phenomenal! He is extremely knowledgeable about the Mayans and the area in general. We learned a ton from him and also had a blast snorkeling in the ocean and swimming in the cenotes. Also, the... More

My husband and I booked 3 tours with Mayans Explorers: 1) Chichen Itza + Ek Balam Tour, 2) Tulum Half Day Tour, 3) Punta Laguna + Coba Tour. For all 3 tours, the guides were excellent and knowledgeable about the culture and history of the Mayan's. Prior to the trip I had done some reading on the Mayans, but could... More

We chose the Mayan Experience tour. I guess we could have found a tour for less but I felt that it was worth it. We got picked up on time, had all of the bottled water we needed and best of all, the tour guide was an archaeologist. We got to hear so many interesting details and information. He made... More
