“Edventure Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went on a couple different excursions with Edventure and would highly recommend them. They provided us with what felt like a custom trip each time. We were a group of four and they tailored our trips to make them an extremely personal experience. Our guides were great and they take care of you every step of the way. Our excursions with the Edventure staff will be the most memorable of our trip! Another reviewer used the term VIP in reference to how they were treated and I couldn't say it any better. Don't use another tour company. They even helped us find a local fisherman to take us fishing for a very reasonable rate. If you want to fish and not get ripped off ask Bonnie about Peo.

“It was a great adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

The four of us (teens, mom and dad) had the experience. We want to thank the owner Ed ( that is why EDventure comes from) and in particular to Brian who made everything possible for us.
We did the tour to Tulum ruins, zip lining, the snorkeling, and rock climbing( around 100 dollars). The area where the activities took place is in an area full of trees and green areas, wonderful view. The cenotes were spectacular. Any person of any age can do the snorkeling and the zip lining. If I did it anybody can do it. Brian was an amazing guide. He and the other guides helped us during the zip lining. They made us feel like if all were a bunch of friends having fun. We paid 30 dollars for him to take us photos. At end of the tour they prepared delicious pork and chicken tacos for lunch. We ate until we were full. They really go beyond their work. ( tip them at the end because they deserve it) I would recommend this tour to families or to college friends so you can have great memories of your trip.

“Second Time Around....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

If you are a fan of crowded venues, impersonal experiences and wasting your money, then Edventure Tours is NOT for you! We were treated like VIP all day! We took our 3 teen gals and they (and their parents) had the time of their lives. We did the Edventure experience about 5 years ago as a couple and HAD to share it with out children this time around. Ed did not disappoint! Ed is a local and landowner who has created an oasis of "edventure" including ruins, zip lining and premium snorkeling (with the biggest turtles I have ever seen and fish that words cannot explain). If you travel to Cancun, Riviera Maya or Playa del Carmen without spending a day without Edventures, then your vacation will NOT be complete! DO IT! Ed, see you next December....with grandma...for real!

“you HAVE to do this tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

I researched this inside out and there is no other tour as good and jam packed as this one!
Tulum in the morning, then ziplining which is so much fun and then onto a 6 person ATV ride through the jungle (make sure you put your hand up first to drive, they allow you to drive your group!) I did this and it was one of the highlights of my day - we then went to 2 cenotes and snorkelled in both, the 2nd one was underground fully and they gave torches and we swam through crystal clear waters, just fantastic! we then went to a lagoon where we swam with THOUSANDS of sardines, we were lucky, for some reason they were all here when we were (they werent sure why) but it was another highlight! we ended up watching the sunset after snorkelling with turtles on a beach - FANTASTIC - do this tour its so worth it!

“Great day with David at EdVentures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We have been on many similar excursions, and this was the best ever!! We did the trip to Tulum, snorkeling in a cenote, and snorkeling with turtles. David was an amazing guide. He helped everyone through the tight spots in the cenote, which was truly an amazing experience. He made sure everyone got great shots on their own cameras. The lunch was sooo delicious. Ed even graciously let us change out of our bathing suits at the end of the day at his home. what an amazing day. The ruins are spectacular, the cenote was beyond expectations and hopes, and what a dream to get to swim with turtles. David made it all so easy. We had the best day.
