Booked The Mayan Experience and it was incredible. Enrico, our tour guide, has a PHD and knew everything. Check out their website for the details for the Mayan Experience. Cannot say enough about the detail of information that was provided on this tour. I did a half day tour with another company to Tulum and there was some repetition of... More

Mayans' Explorers provide small group (c. 6) tours and they cover everything from archeology, history, eco-systems (for example, description of mangrove trees purifying water while floating down canals built by Mayans in order to be able to connect as a trading centre) Small trading centres like Muyil are fascinating but not that well known in general tourist material. These folks... More

We booked the private Mayan Experience through Mayans' Explorers and it was worth every penny.... Diego (driver) and Enrique (our guide) picked us up from our hotel punctually and were very accommodating. The start time combined with how the tour is planned, allowed us to miss the crowds and have an exclusive experience with the historical sites. Enrique was very... More

My wife and I visited Mexico for the first time, and our first excursion was with Mayan Explorers to the Mayan ruins at Tulum. Mario, our tour guide, was fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and spoke excellent English. We were picked up at our resort exactly on time. At the Tulum ruins, we were assigned a separate guide who had excellent historical... More

This was our first trip to Playa del Carmen and the Yucatan Peninsula and it won't be our last... thanks in large part to Mayans' Explorers and our excellent tour guide Juan.
