We booked the Mayan Experience and loved it. Gudelio was always very quick in communications. Our driver and guide were fabulous. They both worked well together and our guide through the ruins was memorable and we absorbed almost all that our guide was telling us. He made it interesting and very hands on so we could see what he was... More

I took the Coba and Tulum tour with 3 friends in July. We had a wonderful experience! Murux was very friendly, informative, and accommodating. The van driver was also friendly and accommodating. We learned a lot, saw some beautiful scenery, and felt very taken care of during our day long tour. We had a great time and would highly recommend!!

These guys pro's. From the initial arrangements all the way through to being dropped back at our hotel it could not have been smoother. Our driver Marcello(aka, Mr. Safety) was great, our guide Murux, probably one of the most knowledgeable guides regarding Mayan history/culture, he is also a professor of archeology just in case you think I am going over...

Our family had a wonderful experience with Mayans' Explorers. It starteed with great communication, they were very responsive to all emails. We did the Mayan Experience Tour one day and the Coba + Tulum tour another day. Both of our tour guides and drivers were great. We especially enjoyed Murux, our tour guide to Coba and Tulum. He is an... More

We went on the private tour of Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, lunch and swimming in a cenote. We were staying in Cancun and they had no issues picking us up there. From trip advisor it was not clear that they went to Cancun, but they were happy to pick us up there. (Note to Mayan Explorers - you may want... More

This may be the best money I have spent on a travel adventure in a long while. I took the Chichen Itza and Ek Barum day tour. From my place at the Marriott this became a 13 hour day...worth every minute. A van was our home, myself solo and three young couples plus our driver Diego and our guide, Enrique... More

This was our second excursion with Gudelio Alanis, and the man is a gem. After 2 excursions and countless emails over the past couple of years we consider him a friend...and I know that feeling is shared by many, many other travelers who have been privileged to explore the Yucatan with him. This time we chose the Chichen Itza/Itzamal tour... More

Really happy with their service and the guide's knowledge. Also tried Cancun Discounts but they weren't nearly as thorough.

Have done 3 tours with the Mayan Explorers. The Mayan Experience The Cool tour And a half day tour of Tulum and Kantun-chi. Easy to book and deal with on line.

After scouring TA for various tour companies, ME certainly stood out because of all the positive reviews. I was debating whether to use the big tour company through our resort or whether to go semi-private with ME. For the additional cost, I felt our experience would be that much better with a smaller group. Email communication with Gudelio was superb... More
