We did the Mayan Experience tour with Juan "Maroosh" as our tour guide and Omar as our driver. We had opted for the shared tour and there were 8 people that were on the trip. Juan has a PhD in Archaeology and has an incredibly vast array of knowledge about the sites we visited and many interesting facts and stories.... More

He is Mayan and an archeologist with a PhD. from UCLA who is fluent in English and German (of course Mayan and Spanish as well), The driver was good and safe and the van was in good condition. Marush was very knowledgeable, funny, and polite.... More

It our first time in Cancun. My friend and I took both The cool tour and Mayan experience tour (both shared tour), and we love and enjoy it! If you like small group tour, I would strongly recommend it. They arranged the time perfectly, no waiting line to any attraction, very efficient. Both guides and drivers are friendly and professional.... More

Had my first trip to Cancun and came across the Mayans' Explorers' website while researching. Firstly their website gives you a perfect video snippet of each tour they offer which allows you a reality view as opposed to generic photo shopped pictures. You can book online and you will be contacted by the brilliant Rod! Rod communicated with me via... More

I originally booked the shared tour (Mayan Experience) for me and a friend but unfortunately she couldn't make the trip due to an unexpected family illness. As it turns out, to join the shared tour, you must book for at least 2 people. I reached out to Rod and he accommodated me, which was very kind of him. The day... More

We booked Mayans Explorers for our airport transfers and a tour. Rod was great with his email communication when we were making our booking and was happy to adapt the private Mayan Experience tour to add a couple of things that we were interested in. When we arrived in Cancun they quickly found us and escorted us to our vehicle... More

I booked a shared tour and it was more like a private tour because we were only three persons. Our guide, a Mayan descendent, gave us many insights about the places we visited. It was a great day!

First of all, Rod, who arranged everything for us by email, was great. Very friendly and patient. We had our airport shuttle scheduled by Mayans'Explorers, and also the Mayan Experience Tour. Even with some changes in our flights and some flight delays, they were there to pick us at the airport when we arrived. The shuttle's driver is outsourced, but... More

Keen to venture outside of our excellent resort, I pre booked a tour with Mayan Explorers to visit Chichen Itza and Ek Balam whilst also stopping for a swim in a gorgeous cenote and having a great Mexican lunch complete with traditional dancers. Quite simply, this tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. Our guide, Morush, and our... More

I was lucky enough to draw Diego as a tour guide. It was just me and him on the tour. We drove to Chichen Itza, which is simply mindblowing. He was a great guide, very intelligent and noticing what I was interested in. We went to a Cenote and then to Valladolid. The whole trip was phenomenal and I would... More
