“The best way to tour Chichen Itza and Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were two families (6 people- two children 12 and 18 years old). We did two tours with Flavio and Lebo- Chichen Itza and Tulum. The trips could not have gone any better. Carol, Flavio's wife was very helpful with the planning. Falvio was knowledgeable, funny, accommodating. The pictures and videos he shot were awesome! We loved going to the cenotes, we probably wouldn't have done them had we not been with Falvio. Snorkling on the day we went to Tulum was great. Flavio always made sure we were hydrated and fed. Our tour guide once we got to Chichen Itza, Enrique was terrific, so knowledgeable. The kids said the excursions were the best thing they did on our trip to Mexico.
Can't say enough good things about the tours. Money well spent!! Wonderful memories captured!

“Flavio tour to Chichen Itza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our family of six (3 couples) took the day trip to Chichen Itza with Flavio on July 2, 2013. It was without a doubt one of the best tours I've ever taken and we have taken many all over the world. Flavio was informative, funny, helpful and definitely went out of his way to make the day enjoyable for us! The cenote was absolutely beautiful and a unique experience! The guide at Chichen Itza knew his stuff and pointed out some interesting details we might have missed otherwise. There were plenty of bathroom breaks, snacks and drinks for everyone.

We all appreciated the photos he took and provided to us at the end of the tour. This is definitely the way to go!

“Flavio Tours the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We loved Flavio Tours. Flavio's wife Carol was great in arranging our tour to Chichen Itza via email and answered any questions I asked.
Flavio was such a great host, full of energy and lots of information.
We had decided to do a private tour with just 4 people and highly recommend it. It was so good that we hired them again for another trip to Tulum and another Cenote which are well worth seeing. The only bad thing is we heard that his cameras either got stolen or he lost them at the end of our tour. Such a shame as he takes so many photos for you then downloads them onto a memory stick to take home.
His driver Lebo ( I hope I spelled this right) was very patient in driving us around all day so thank you Lebo as well.
Flavio, we hope you found your camera's and thank you so much for the best 2 days in Playa Del Carmen.
We wish we could say "Welcome to my office" everyday like you lol.

“Flavio ROCKS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The wife and I took a short vacation to Cancun in 2012. I visited tripadvisor for some ideas on what to do while there and came across Flavio. After reading some positive posts, I went out to his website and booked the Chichen Itza private tour. THIS IS the way to go! Flavio goes out of his way to make each tour unique and personal. His tours are filled with many little surprises that add that additional touch of personal flair. From the moment he picks you up, until the moement he drops you off, you feel safe and as if you are with a friend. Cannot wait till 2014 for our next tour...

“Awesome day with Flavio Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I cannot say enough good things about Flavio Tours. After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to book a tour to Chichen Itza with Flavio. We made our reservation before we left for Mexico and the communication via e-mail with Carol was always prompt and helpful.

The day of our tour Flavio and his diver arrived on time. We picked up one other couple for a total of seven and were then on our way to the ruins. The trip to Chichen Itza makes for a long day but at all times drinks and snacks where provided along with Flavio’s boundless energy and enthusiasm for what we were doing and seeing. Our guide at Chichen Itza was very knowledge and well versed on the ruins history and the Maya in general. The cenote was incredible and included a delicious lunch and Valladolid was a nice stop on the trip back. Being able to head out early and travel with a small group also meant that we beat the crowds the entire day.

Flavio recorded our entire day in photos and video and gave each of us a copy of the recording at the end of the day. It’s a one of a kind keepsake that was really a treat to receive.

The entire day exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend Flavio Tours to any one wanting to unique experience on their trip to the Riviera Maya.
