    Worth it!
    Wow our tour guide was amazing! He knew so much about the city, local neighborhoods, and even gave us a little background of his life. Super safe, trustworthy man. Book it!

    Phenomenal experience with Dante
    My private tour with Dante was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable about Diego and Frida's life, history, and art. Dante as well as the areas (Mexico City) and was able to connect all sites visited back to the history and influence of Diego and Frida.

    We spent approximately 6 hours sitting in a tiny hot car. The traffic certainly wasn’t the fault of the tour guide or operator but it was an uncomfortable and boring day. The tour guide was 78 years old and very monotone and - I hate to say - boring. Tula itself is not as nice as most ruins I’ve been to in Mexico. There’s hardly anything there but the statues and what is there is reconstructed for the most part. We did not need two hours there walking around in the hot sun. Then the Pueblo Magico was so crowded and just filled with gift shops. The church is beautiful but no different than what you can see in Mexico City.

    Wow, let the adventure start
    I will recommend this two places. Not to many tourists here. When I went here I was the only. You will learn a lot about the Native tribe Toltec. Go there and experience this two places

    Fun, history, nature, food, scenery, local life
    We did the TOUR YUCATAN ARCHEONATURA and the tour to Isla Contoy ax a group of fry Friends in May 2023. Excellent service - wonderful trip. Our guide for 4 days Ramon was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and also fun. Highly recommend

    Incredible ruins
    Although slightly off the beaten path in the Chiapas region it's definitely worth either driving to or taking a guided tour. The Temple of the inscriptions, Acropolis and the Temple of the Red Queen are without a doubt worth a visit! If going on your own I recommend taking the second entrance farther up you'll thank me later! There are bathrooms, drinks and food vendors available on site as well as parking for 50 pesos

    Surprise Fees
    We decided to make a stop in Mexico City to visit one of my aunts who is having health issues. Wanted to do something we hadn’t done yet, with not too much walking but fun, this was it! Our guide had great information and took his time and gave us great information and entertained my aunt by letting her chime in the knowledge she has of the city. What had me confused and upset was that he let us know that the tour company needed $72.00 extra, in cash, in addition to what we had already paid. We asked what it was for and he shrugged his shoulders and said he had no idea but was informed he had to collect it from us before we left Xochimilco. Instead of fully enjoying the trajinera ride, I called (no answer) and was emailing the tour company to find out why. The last email stated that everything was taken care of and the enjoy our tour. As of yet we haven’t hear anything from them, so I know we were ripped off here, as my husband didn’t want to make a fuss and paid. I would HIGHLY advice to use a different company to do this tour.

    A Great Tour
    My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with Salvador (Sal)! Even though the Tulum ruins were closed for construction, the Coba ruins were a great alternative (although a longer drive from our resort). Sal was incredibly knowledgable about the ruins and we sincerely enjoyed chatting and getting to know him on the drive. After the ruins, Sal took us to a wonderful Mayan restaurant, and while it was definitely a hole-in-the-wall, it was delicious. Lastly, the cenote was so refreshing, especially after walking around the ruins. We highly recommend this tour! Private is definitely the way to go.

    Informative Tour Guide
    Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We learned a lot about what was happening socially and politically during the time Frida and Diego were alive.

    Private tour worth the extra cost
    We were guided on a private tour for 2 by Gabrie who was exceptionally knowledgeable and explained the history of both the Floating gardens and Coyoacan. Gabriel was an easy guide his English was fluent and the tour went at our pace. Unless you are in need of company I would highly recommend spending the extra for an easier stress free experience.

    Amazing and educational
    Manuel - a retired architect - was fantastic! His enthusiasm for his country, its history & culture was infectious. We were absolutely delighted and couldn't stop smiling as we saw and learned much more than we could ever have expected. And were charmed in the process. If you do nothing else in Mexico City, we would highly recommend a tour with Manuel.

    A visit to Yaxchilan and Bonampak from Palenque
    Being close to Mexico-Guatemala border, getting to sites from Palenque took a bit of driving. The tour was from 5:30am - 7:30pm. A good breakfast was included during a drive break. Boat trip to Yaxchilan was great! The archeological site was amazing. A bit of climbing was needed.We were given only 2 hours to explore the site - I could have used 4+. Included lunch was not so great, the place didn't have electricity. (not sure how they refrigerate/preserve food). Also, all drinks including water/non-alcoholic ones are extra. A beer was MXN75/80. We visited Bonampak in the afternoon - only 1 hour was allocated for this site. Wearing masks are mandatory to view paintings.

    Not worth it
    The driver was late to start with, then he drove like a crazy man, the tour of the canals was great but too short. Then on the way home, the driver never showed us anything else in coyucan. Very expensive for what you get, very disappointed
  • amybM6284XC
    We did not stop at the town of Coyocan and we were supposed to do that. Total trip was 3.5 hours, not 4 to 5. Our driver was 15 minutes late picking us up. The canal ride was good, but very quick. No hand sanitizer in the car. We feel that there was zero value in this trip and will not recommend it to anyone. Just go down to the canal and book it yourself.
  • danieljZ6608HI
    We specifically included a leg of our trip to stop in CDMX because my wife has wanted to see the Frida Kahlo museum for a very long time. We booked months in advance. On date of the tour, tour guide just never showed up. After several attempts to call the tour company we finally got in touch and they said the guide has sent an email that they needed to reschedule. Never happened, they are liars. The kahlo museum sells out weeks in advance so we were unable to go. Terrible. Ruined our vacation

After a grueling four-hour van ride (we had been advised it was two hours which was fair enough), my family (sister & spouse, husband) were looking forward to being able to see a pink sand beach. In reality, it is a salt water flat where salt is extracted when flooded by seawater. As the water evaporates, salt is left and the minerals have a pink tinge. Do not believe you are going to be able to actually get near, but remember to bring binoculars so you can see anything.
Then lunch at a local eating spot, where we had delicious fish.
The boat ride was and hour and a half and we saw flamingos.
Then back to the van for our return four hour return ride.
The guide was terriffic (Ariel) and we enjoyed our commentary.
If you enjoy driving and seeing some local culture then enjoy. We would not have taken this tour had we know the timing. We blame Trip Advisor for not being forthcoming in their description.

Hello Marietta. thanks for your review. We are sorry to hear that the driving time was greater than what you expected, but unfortunately from Cancun, there is no way to get faster to Rio Lagartos.
