The day we spent with this company exceeded all expectations despite our expectations been very high. From the moment we were greeted by artur to getting back to our hotel we were looked after with the highest level of professionalism. We can’t speak highly enough of either of the experiences we took part in (turtle tour and cenote swim) as they both blew our mind. The turtle swim was an incredible experience that is a memory that will stay with us for life and when it came to the cenote, the knowledge artur had of the cenotes was incredible and he really educated whilst leaving it to be private also. We then headed for a traditional Mexican meal which artur again advised us on the most local delicacies which we absolutely loved. From start to finish, fantastic trip. 5*

We had a wonderful experience snorkeling with turtles, swimming in a cenote plus a Mayan lunch in the jungle. Arturo and Claire are excellent hosts. Great idea to go as a private party. Snorkeling equipment and life jackets, new and sanitised. No rush, felt relaxed and safe the entire time even though you're driving into the jungle in Mexico. A worthwhile experience.

Juan “JJ” was an excellent tour guide. Informative, organized, and kind. We went to three places. The ruins, sea turtle excursion, and cenote swim. The cenote was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. After we went for a delicious lunch. This tour is a must do and with JJ! My friend and I had a wonderful time!

My family and I had an amazing time on the swimming with turtles and cenote tour! Our guide Chris and our driver Juan Manuel were the best! They were both so nice and accommodating. Chris was very knowledgable and fun. My niece left her hat in the van and Juan Manual drove all the way back to our hotel to return it for us. They arranged for us to visit the cenote when it was less crowded, which was great. We visited Taak Bi Ha cenote and it was so stunning. We loved the fact that this was a private tour and we would totally recommend Absolute Adventure Mexico!

We loved the whole experience! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was awesome and definitely a highlight. The cenote was absolutely beautiful! I'm so glad we did the tour. Our tour guide Dulce and driver Pascual were very professional and accomodating. With so many tour companies to choose from, it was important for us to find the right one. We chose Absolute Adventure based on their positive reviews and were not disappointed. The experience was exactly what we hoped it would be and we felt safe and secure. We would definitely use them again!

We loved this tour! My husband and I have done something similar but this was our first time bringing our kids. They are ages 12, 16 and 18. Dulce and Pasquell were our helpers for the day. They were amazing! We all loved the sea turtles! That part was incredible. Then we went to a cenote and I wasn’t sure if my kids would enjoy that part but they did! The lunch was awesome too. I would highly recommend this! Thank you so much for a great day!

Great tour. They picked us up from the Airbnb we were at on time. We had a fun time at the ruins. Swimming with turtles was so awesome. Saw some stingrays too. Relaxing and snorkeling by the cenote was also a great experience. Our guide Dulce did an amazing job and was super friendly! All around great time!

From the moment we booked our tour, Claire was on top of communications and very responsive if I had questions. The snorkeling with turtles (and some fish and stingrays) was amazing, and my 6-year-old had such a good time. Swimming in a cenote is something you can't miss if you visit this region. It was truly magical. While there are still some landmarks closed due to the Coronavirus, there were still plenty of private tour options for us to choose from. We will definitely be back and booking another tour!

First of all I have to say thank you to Chris, Pascual, and Claire who worked so hard to make our tours happen during this difficult time. We wanted to do this tour, but did not think it would happen. The Turtle Experience in Akumal opened the day before due to the pandemic and they made it happen for us. They were early to pick us up, we arrived and were virtually the only tourists there. We saw at least ten turtles as well as barracuda and other marine life. After we swam in a beautiful lagoon where we saw numerous ocean fish as well as many birds. We had a wonderful lunch, which Chris (our tour guide) joined us. These are wonderful people who are so passionate and just fun to be with. If you want an amazing unforgettable tour contact them and you will not be disappointed.

This was the best thing we did on our trip to Mexico. We originally booked because my youngest son got very sick on our trip to Hawaii and had been unable to swim with sea turtles, which was his dream. In order to ensure we could see turtles, we decided to book a private tour as we thought we would have a better chance to see them and it was one of the sole purposes of coming to Mexico.

What a great day! Easy pick up at a reasonable time. Pascual was a great driver while Juan was so incredibly knowledgeable about everything in Mexico from the politics to the history and he was a candid and lovely guide. Our group included my two teenaged boys, myself and my parents. My mom has some trouble getting around and needs a walker. This tour was perfect for the variable age ranges and the mobility challenges. We were able to choose what to do and how fast to do it. We went slowly swimming and saw a few turtles, we took our time at the cenote, especially as access was difficult, and the lunch was quiet and authentic, ordering off the menu rather than the buffet style seen on busy bus tours.

We took a bus tour the following day to Chichen Itza with cancun-sightseeing.com that was absolutely awful and nearly ruined our trip because of ignorant and unintelligible guides, huge crowds and the inability of our family to sit together on the hours long bus tour because there were not enough seats. Thankfully we had talked with Juan about this planned bus tour while we were on our Akumal tour. If not for his information about the history and current archaeological findings of the area and his advice to seek out the observatory in the old section of the ruins, it would have been a bust. As it was, he managed to lead us to a wonderful little park at the back of the attraction away from the crowds without even being there to guide us.

Cannot say enough about this company and their great staff. If you aren’t sure whether to book or not, just do it. The big bus tours, although cheaper, are terrible. I would have paid double the price to have them take us on our tour of Chichen Itza if I could have. It has certainly influenced how I plan to book excursions in the future.

Thanks for saving our trip to Mexico! You guys are so great. Keep doing what you do!
