We had a group of 11 so we had our own van and guide. Joel started the tour off talking about his Mayan background, the local area, and the local culture. The tour of the ruins was fantastic. Since we were a small group, we were able to move through the large tour bus groups and have an excellent, insightful... More

We decided to travel to the Dzibanche ruins despite the two hour drive, based on the great reviews. It was worth it! Our tour guide Joel was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about the area, culture, geography etc. There were ten in our group and we enjoyed Dzibanche alone. We were the only ones there. It... More

The drive out to the ruins was a bit long but the first tour guide did his best to familiarize our group with the highlights of the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Aztec and Mayan cultures and also the local Mexican people. Once at the ruins we met up with the "official" tour guide Diago. He was top notch and had... More

Our group of about 16 ladies booked the half-day tour to the Chachobben Mayan ruins site with Native Choice. This company was always prompt in responding to emails and the booking process was easy as we were able to make our $15 deposit using Paypal. Our guide was Diego who was excellent. Our driver Pedro was an excellent driver and... More

We enjoyed our trip to Chacchoben Mayan ruins with Native Choice. Our tour guide Joel was very informative and saw to all of our needs. We learned a lot about the history of the Mayan people and civilization. Our group was small (9 people) so we got a lot of individual attention. Well worth the price, which was well below... More

We preferred to tour with a private tour operator as we thought the price of the shore excursions of Oceanias Riviera was too high. The experience was very enjoyable. Joel, our guide said he is Mayan, the best condition for inside information. He told us a lot about the Mayan people today and of course during the period when they... More

This is really one of those tours where you can see the value of going with a local company instead of a ship's excursion. You get exactly the same thing, except with a smaller, more personalized group at less than half the price. What's not to like! The only thing you have to do to save is take a very... More

10 minute walk to Native Choice office. Bottled water and air conditioned new vans to Ruins. David, our tour guide, was very informative. Enjoyed the shops at the ruins. Lunch included as part of our tour. Enjoyed the chicken, rice and beans. Coke and beer included. The open air hut must have been short staffed the day we were there,... More
