“Unforgettable Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The reviews don’t lie and its #1 rating on Trip Advisor is well deserved. While on our honeymoon at Blue Diamond we met another couple who had booked YPT. They went, they saw, they raved but before they had even raved I knew we had to do this! We booked on a days’ notice with Jay by phone and he could not have been kinder, more exciting or more helpful.

So we went, we saw and we were blown away. If you’re going to do this tour I suggest the total package. We left at 8, returned after 4; it was just the two of us along with our guide Rod and our driver Manny— We began at Tulum where Jay went out of his way to meet & greet us and from there went to a Mayan village where we swam in a gorgeous Cenote, Zip-lined and Canoed; then to Dos Ojos (absolutely unbelievable); Akumal/Turtle Bay; Awesome Fish Lunch & Excellent Fresh Margaritas on the beach at La Lunitas; and finally to Laguna Yal-Ku to snorkel amongst innumerable tropical fish.

By the end of the day we felt at home like we had just shared an amazing day with great friends. Not one for cheesiness but the tour was something magical that pictures don’t begin to do justice and words don’t even begin to describe. We hope to be back in the area soon and happily we’d sign up for this all over again.

Tips: Add the photo package! Opt for the fish for Lunch! Give in, Have a Margarita! Have some extra cash on you for Cocktails and Guide Appreciation-- they deserve it and they really appreciate it!

“Friendly, Informative and Intimate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We did the trip to Chichen Itza and Cenote. Fabulous day with Juan, Manny and Renee. Jay even went out of his way to meet with us en route. We even took a small detour to view a tequila distillery which was pretty interesting given that most of the distillery tours I've taken were in Ireland (i.e., Bushmills, Jameson). Very informative personal tour with just a total of 4 guests. You pay a little more but worth every penny.

“Loved every minute of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

What a great tour.

We had pato (patricio) as our guide, a nice guy.

Dos ojos was stunning. The snorkling with the turtles was great and the natural pool was awesome too.
Difficult to put into words, it was an amazing experiance. A must do.

Thank you Pato. You did a perfect job for us.

Regards,
Martin

“Best in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

You get what you pay for and if you want nothing but the best book this tour today. I've taken many tours here in the Mayan Riviera over the years and this blows them out of the water. Transportation is fresh, clean, comfortable and secure. The equipment is excellent, they even give you a brand new snorkel so you will not get a used one (my girl loved this). We had a blast, the staff is top notch. Make sure to ask for the underwater photo shoot option if you don't have an underwater camera (forget about the disposable ones), ask for Rodrigo he has a great eye for nice pictures. They sent the pictures promptly to me as a downloadable attachment through e-mail, so we were able to share them with our folks back home instantly. It was a total of 146 pictures of us swimming along side turtles and fish, surrounded by beautiful scenery. We got tons of calls first thing next morning. This is a professional service with all the details you want, do not hesitate.

We're already planning our return for the whale shark tours next summer. Very Cool

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

My best friend and I just visited Mexico. One of the main highlights was our day spent with Karen and Miguel...First of all, eveything was planned for us and the tour itself was explained in detail, so we knew how the day would go....We were so overwhelmed by their kindness, knowledge, and help. They made the day FABULOUS! And when we met Jay. that was the cherry on top. Well organized, beautiful, informative, and a really fun time was had by all. I can't say enough good things about everyone at Your Private Tour....Can't wait to go back...
