Our guide Murux, was energetic and informative - he really made the Mayan ruins come alive. We enjoyed our tour, and as we joined a group (3 couples) we got great value for money. Ek Balam was a wonderful experience, don't miss it!

A Huge Thank You to Louis! Louis, our fabulous tour guide, and our lovely driver, Diego, were both so lovely and created an amazing day for our private group of 15.

We booked in advance over email and dealt with Rod who was very helpful and efficient. We stayed in Cancun and when we arrived we provided our room number and although we had an early 6am pick up, they were waiting for us in a lovely people carrier (clean/ac and water provided). Marush and our driver were both brilliant. So... More

You can do better, we paid 200 usd for this and we kind of regret it. They picked us up in a van that was falling apart, the woman driving it kept hitting the curves and side walks, almost ran people over lol very thrilling haha. They pick you up and take you to 3 places to do snorkeling, by... More

My girl-friend and I were recently privileged to be given a 2 day private tour by Mayans’ Explorers in Playa del Carmen, a tour which took us to Izamal, Merida, the Lol Tun caves and finally along the Puuc route before heading back to Playa. Along the way, we visited colonial towns, churches, convents, the largest cave system in the... More

My mom and I were on a “Mayan Experience" (Chichen Itza, Cenote Ik Kil, Valladolid and Ek Balam) tour with another family in February 2015. We were picked up promptly at our resort and our guide, Marush, gave us a “plan for the day”; told us about himself (he is one of the last generations of Mayans to have been... More

We took both the Mayan and the Cool Tour with Enrique as our guide. Both days were a wonderful experience. First of all, the tours are well planned out to accommodate the best times of day to avoid crowds, and the intense heat peaks. With only 6 of us on the tours, the day was very interactive and tailored to... More

We were greeted by our driver and guide at our Grand Mayan resort in the Riviera Maya. A pleasant drive took us to Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, the Cenote Ik Kil and Valladolid. Our Guide, Marusk (sp?) was very informative about the local Mayan's, their villages and cultures. Professional and courteous. Had a great time.

My daughter and I have used Mayan Explorers for 3yrs for our tours and airport transfers when in playa. As always they were a pleasure to work with right from the start: Gudelio, the owner, replied quickly to my emails, answered all my questions and set up everything. We took the private Mayan Experience tour of Chichen Itza, Ek Balam,... More
