          Stress free tour.
          We did a private tour and did not regret doing so. We were able to plan how long we stay in each destination based on what we prefer. We didnt feel rushed like other tours. Pepe is very knowledgeable about the history and was very good with recommendations. Our driver Jesus did a great job in bringing us to our destination safely and earlier than expected ETA. They also brought cold water and snacks for us. We will definitely use their services again when we come back to Mexico.

          Amazingly knowledgeable about Mayan culture and regional archaeology
          We were a group of 4. Our van driver Moises arrived on time and was always quick and ready to pick us up at each stop. Simon was a fantastic tour guide. He is an accredited tour guide and that was evident quickly. As we drove from Cancun to Chichen Itza, Simon told us about Mayan history and sites that we would not be visiting that day. This gave us great context. We left our Cancun hotel about 630am and arrived at Chichen Itza about 3 hours later. Being early was good - it was hot and just got hotter during our time there. Simon walked us through the open areas of Chichen Itza starting with oldest portions through the newest areas. He highlighted both the normally photographed buildings but also others that illuminated the history of occupation and evolution of building styles.

          Excellent Tour
          We had the most amazing time on the Mayan Heritage tour. Alberto and Jose were the best. Alberto was an excellent tour guide. He spoke English as well. We learned so much about Mayan history and saw incredible sights. I highly recommend this trip. We felt safe the entire time.

          Six Stars!
          If we could give this tour 6 stars, we would! A deep dive into the history and ruins of the Mayan world, with stops at sites you have probably never heard of. Each site had something "extra" which made it unique. We were gobsmacked by the art, carvings, architecture, murals, statues and overall awesomeness. Max, our guide, supplied us with just the right amount of information, keeping us captivated and overwhelmed at the same time.

          Fully recommended!
          The visited sites gave us a complete picture of the Maya civilization in Yucatan, as well as an insight into the Spanish era. Special compliments to the excellent guide Max, who gave us detailed explanations of religion, art, architecture, from the start of human occupation in Yucatan to nowdays. And to the excellent driver Moises, ever so nice to us.

          This tour was great! It’s a huge time saver compared to the larger bus tours, much more comfortable too! The driver and guide are both very friendly and accommodating. If I go back, I’ll definitely book a tour with them again. Great experience!

          Excellent tour with great people
          We did the 5 days tour with Max and Moises who were absolutely excellent. They shared a lot of information and made us feel comfortable and very well taken care of the entire time. We felt they really went above and beyond for us multiple times. We were the only people on the tour so it was essentially a private tour. Several of the sites we visited were essentially empty except for us. Max and Moises shared food and culture with us, not just Mayan history, and were patient and kind to let me practice my Spanish. Pepe was very easy and quick to communicate with and the whole experience was very smooth and enjoyable. It was a trip we will never forget.

          Best tour I’ve ever had
          Had a fantastic time with our tour guide, Zotz. He was super knowledgeable and went above and beyond. It was just my husband and I on the tour so it felt like a private tour. Getting into the attractions was a super smooth experience, bypassing the lines. This was my best tour experience in Mexico by far.

          Cancun and Mayan Experts
          I have been using and traveling with Special Mayan Tours for 17 years. Everybody working there are all great drivers, hosts, and nice people. I have used them for simple airport pickups to extravagant all day and overnight tours. Everyone is trust worthy and I can always feel safe even on the backroads.

          Educational, personalized, and fun!
          This was a special experience for our family. Pepe was a wonderful guide, full of information about the area, Mayan history and culture. It was exactly what my husband, an American historian, was looking for in his effort to learn more about the Mayans. He took us to two wonderful places for breakfast and lunch….one very definitely local, which we loved, and lunch on the beautiful beach, a real treat. He and Abraham, our driver, were both wonderful and so accommodating! I can’t say enough good things about our day. We made wonderful memories, visited Coba and Tulum, and made 2 new friends. We will definitely call on Pepe again for more Mayan adventures. He can’t be beat!

          Outstanding Ek Balam & Río Lagartos Private Tour
          This was our second private tour taken with Special Mayan Tours. Our first was 10 years ago visiting the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza and much more. This is one of the original and most well respected Tour Companies in Cancun, Mexico. This is a family operated and very professional business, offering a variety of single and multi-day private personalized tours. On this visit we chose their Ek Balam & Río Lagartos Private Day Tour, which was outstanding once again! Our guide and co-owner {Pepe Lopez Jr} along with his professional driver, were superb. His passion for the history of the Mayan people and empire, definitely shows in his knowledge and presentation throughout the tour. If you love history and nature, this tour is simply a {Must Do} when visiting the Yucatan Peninsula. Ek Balam is amazing and one of the least busiest of Mayan Ruins Sites to visit, along with a visit to the protected; Rio Lagartos Natural Biosphere Reserve. You will not be disappointed with selecting Special Mayan Tours. They will tailor a tour specific to your desires. Taking a private tour is such a pleasure to that of a crowded typical bus tour!

          Amazing Experience- Exceeded Expectations!
          We were a group of 7 adults, staying in Cancun, looking to visit the Chichen Itza Ruins and local Cenotes. When weighing our options, we felt that Pepe was the best option, and we could not have been more correct in our choice! Pepe and Jose were MORE than accommodating to picking us up at our resort, and giving us an unforgettable day. Pepe was incredibly knowledgeable about the Ruins, providing unique insights from his years of experience and made the tour very enjoyable. More importantly, he was personable, friendly, funny and thoughtful- providing us ample water throughout the day to beat the heat! He made a great recommendation for lunch, which all members of our group enjoyed. The buffet was fully stocked with traditional Mexican and Mayan foods. We then spent the remainder of our time swimming in a cenote at the sight of our lunch. Being with Pepe, we never felt rushed or on a schedule- everything was at our pace, which was especially nice. Jose provided us safe transportation throughout the day. Additionally, Pepe provided us a recommendation for an additional excursion, which we booked through him given our positive interaction with him during this tour. I cannot recommend Pepe more, and implore anyone visiting the Ruins to book through Special Mayan Tours!

          Private tour with an excellent guide
          We had an amazing day trip to Chichen Itza with Pepe as our guide and Mag as our driver. We had two families with kids ranging from 7 to 11. They picked us up at our resort in the hotel zone and we headed straight to our destination. The van fit our group comfortably. They offered cold bottled water in a cooler and had phone chargers available. We beat most of the crowds to the ruins with this private tour since we did not need to pick up other riders. They have several stops that can be made for bathroom breaks. Pepe answered all of our questions on the way to the ruins and provided a wonderfully detailed narration at the site. His English was perfect and easy for everyone to understand. After touring the ruins, Pepe recommended a cenote with an attached restaurant that was less busy since it was further away from the ruins. The food at Cenote Saamal was AMAZING! The buffet featured Mexican food with some traditional Mayan dishes. Swimming in the cenote was my personal favorite activity on our trip. This is easily the neatest excursion we've ever taken on vacation. Thanks for the great tour!

        Our family of 5 recently took a private tour with our guide Pepe and driver Moises. Though it was based on a recommended tour route, Pepe and his team were very flexible with our desired route and things we wanted to see. We went to Ek Balam, then Mayapan, then stayed the night at a hotel near Uxmal. We saw Uxmal on the morning of the second day. The plan had been to go next to Kabah, but it was closed and we didn’t find out till the last minute. Also Dzibichultun near Mérida was closed, so we spent a nice few hours in Mérida for some shopping. Then a late lunch at Izamal to climb a pyramid in the town and see the convent there before powering it back to Puerto Morelos.
        All of us were impressed with Pepe’s knowledge about not only the Maya civilizations (which I myself already knew a lot about, and he taught me a lot!) but other local history as well. The way he integrated these stories into the trip was amazing. Also, engaging questions with him brought out even more.
        For those wondering, Pepe speaks absolutely perfect English. Not only that, but he set up our hotel, all of the admissions to the sites, and restaurant reservations at authentic places with local cuisine. He and Moises made it a special and customized experience for us, down to the side of the road stops for smoked meat and pitaya (dragonfruit).
        I can’t recommend this group enough. We will absolutely be back for another customized adventure to see more things.

        We were 2 families of 3 young boys aged 10-12 staying at the Westin in Cancun. It was a one day tour to Chichen Itza, swim in a canote, buffet lunch and El Bakram. Our tour guide was named Pepe and our driver was Jose. The tour started right on time with our friendly guides. Pepe’s English is impeccable. During our entire tour, he was prepared with a lot of facts and information about the things we saw and historical events about the places. He was also prepared for questions and was very respectful with our kids questions too. They gave us a great tour of each location then gave us a lot of leisure time to discover the attractions on our own. This was much appreciated by our group. Our lunch suggestion at a renovated Hacienda restaurant was such a treat. The Mexican food tasted very authentic (to us tourist!) but we really enjoyed new dishes and suggestions from Pepe. Delicious lunch buffet which would please anyone as there was enough variety to satisfy even the most discerning of taste. The Hacienda was adjacent to the canote so it made it so convenient to go for a swim after lunch. Again, Pepe and Jose gave us enough time to enjoy our lunch and swim. He stayed close to ensure we were safe but allowed us time to ourselves to do what we wanted. Our trip to El Bakram was such a treat. Pepe was a great guide and we enjoyed the facts and history about the place he shared with us. Jose was an excellent driver and got us safely home at the end of a very long day. It started to pour down on us on the way home and Jose slowed down for safety and made us all feel very confident. We would highly recommend this tour with Pepe and Jose to anyone. Mucho gracias!

        Since our tour operator let us sit completely (FTI) we have searched for an alternative to still have the opportunity to visit the Mayan sites.Mayan Tours actually made it possible to organize the tour as a small group of only 3 people.Our tour guide had absolutely great knowledge about the Mayan sites and has always had an answer to all questions. There were really wonderful 2 days that you can only recommend with this event. Because there is the whole price / performance
        relationship.
        We thank Pepe for his perfect support and Abraham for the perfect execution of the tour. Organizer has the predicate highly recommended !!!

        The tour was impeccably organised and our driver/guide (Abraham) was very knowledgeable and a great guy. Pick up was on time and the minibus was clean and airy, which was good as there is a lot of travelling on both days. Merida is an interesting city and the sites at Uxmal and Chichen Itza simply incredible. The lunches provided were good but note you have to pay for your own dinner on day 1 and breakfast on day 2
