We have been traveling to mexico for 18 yrs. and these guys are the best. Private tours for the cost of big bus tours, made to order, great guides, drivers, and the flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile. Will be using their services again and so should you! Thanks, guys.

Before arriving in Mexico (for the first time) we booked 3 tours and this was by far the best. (we were spreading bets) Pick up was on time and the van was comfortable with only 8 on this occasion , including us.Alexandra, the driver was very good and Murux (hope that's right as this is 2 weeks later) was a...

Believe all the EXCELLENT reviews of this trip! Murux is the ultimate guide, having grown up in Chichen Itza amongst archaeologists from all over the world. He speaks at least five languages and is a scholar of Mayan culture. His knowledge and enthusiasm are contagious. There were five of us in a nice van. Alessandra was an excellent driver, dropping...

We booked this trip in early February and our tour included Chichen Itza, a swim in a cenote, all you can eat buffet, a stop in Valladolid, and Ek Balam. Our guide was Murux; a passionate Mayan who teaches you about the people (both past and present). Our tour felt very private and inclusive; our group size was eight people.... More

My husband and I visited Riviera Maya for a week and wanted to take a break from the pool and beach to explore some of the Mayan Ruins. This was our first time in Mexico and we wanted to get a feel for the Mayan culture. Boy, are we glad we choose the Private Mayan Experience Tour with Mayans' Explorers.... More

We had an excellent tour with Louis. He was absolutely amazing. This company made the booking process very easy would love to work with them again. Each location we visited was spectacular. The tour itself was something we will never forget. I would recommend all who visit the Rivera Maya to use this company.

We have chosen the tour Mayan Experience as we wanted to see a lot in a day - Chichen Itza, Valladolid, Ek Balam plus swimming in a Cenote! The tour took more over 12 hours, just keep in mind that it'll be a long day but well worth it! Best part of it that we were just a group of... More

Fantastic tour today, very smitten with Mayan culture. Maroosh is very knowledgeable and authoritative guide on Mayan culture. There is a deeper and more significant history to the Mayan people than you might realise. Beware of generic tour guides .... advice is to search out Maroosh.

This is a great option if you don't want to do the insanely large tour groups that move you around like a herd of cattle. We had a total of 7 people (including me and my boyfriend) in our group, and it felt nice and intimate. A good option if the private tour is a bit pricey for you. Be... More

Marux was an excellent tour guide. My family and I learned so much about Mayan history and Chichen Itza. It was definitely unique to have a Marux--an archaeologist, professor, and someone who grew up in the area. We were a group of 4 in a van with about 6 others. Both the driver and Marux were incredibly friendly. I would... More
