With over 30 years of local experience, we are qualified to show you the Riviera Maya like nobody else can. Your local Quickie will take you to places that are hidden gems off the beaten tourist track and fill you with knowledge and fun that only a local can. Our signature tour (which is NOT PRIVATE) is what has made us famous as it is a land and sea based experience that nobody else can offer. We also specialize in private charters on multiple vessels of many sizes for weddings, rehearsal parties, corporate events, birthdays, baptisms, anniversaries or just for fun. Feel free to come as a guest and leave as a friend. Direct bookings only as you will not find any information about us at your hotels. Allow us the privilege to earn your trust and exceed your expectations.Happy sailing!!!

If you really want to explore the surroundings within a small group and definitely not with one of those "mass tourism operators", you are right here!!! A big thanks to... More

The tour was organized, friendly, and considered both safety and environmental preservation. We ate a very lovely local restaurant near the denote, and the denote a truly lovely. If we... More

There aren't words to express our gratitude to Quickie and his team! To make a VERY long story short, through no mistake of his own, my family was 'delivered' to the door of Quickies excursions. We thought we were headed to a different tour company..Right away, Quickie made every effort to get us where we were scheduled to be, but... More

We shared a signature excursion with another family and kids of the same age. It was fantastic! Manny was enjoyable and learned a lot of the history of the area. Great with the kids and interacted well. Loved how organized they were, informative and really loved where we had lunch. The variety of seeing the ruins at Tulum, Cenotes, snorkeling... More

What an awesome tour company. I booked this trip after reading reviews here on Trip Adviser. The reviews do not misrepresent and Local Quickie tours did not disappoint. What a great experience from start to finish. Even with it being Easter weekend and the area being packed Quickie and his team did not falter. We had a great time as... More

This was our second tour with Capt. Quickie and his gang and it was as wonderful as the first over 2 years ago. This time we went on the ziplining tour and had a blast. The guys at Selva Maya were great and made the whole things extra fun. We will definitely go with them again when we get back... More

This was an all day excursion for those who love action, water and sun. Wear sandals, sun screen, swim trunks, and maybe a hat. Optional … towels, more sun screen, and your own camera, if water resistant. Do not bring money, credit cards or anything you wouldn’t leave unguarded on a beach. The day started off overcast which was a... More

They treated us like visiting family. We had so much fun. We had a very small group which made it all so much more personal. I would do it again in a second.

Signature excursion: turtles, Cenotes, Tulum beach and catamaran. Amy, Alex, Manne, Quicky and staff were great. From first contact to last goodbye. My kids had a great time. Smaller group, they are organized, pleasant and professional. I would come back again and again. Thank you for the best day of our trip!
