We joined the Mayan Experience Tour with our guide Salvador and driver Roberto. Both were fantastic and made us feel very welcome. Roberto collected us on time at 7am before heading to our first stop - Ek Balm. This was a great stop and much quieter than similar locations. Salvador provided detailed commentary enroute and onsite, he clearly knows his... More

It total we had 16 people go on the excursion and I paid for half of them as a gift to my immediate family... More

Fantastic deal for an all day tour. We visited 4 locations and our tour guide Morosh gave us in depth stories and PhD insight that no other company's tour guide seemed to have. You could tell how passionate he was during our visit of these ancient pyramids, cave and old city. I saw no disadvantage to this trip. We got... More

We went on their Mayan tour last Friday and our group was a total of 6 people which was great. Our guide was full of interesting knowledge and so friendly. The entire trip is an experience you will not forget! Their Whale Shark adventure is not done by them, they use a separate company to conduct this tour and that... More

Our tour included Chichén Itza, Ek Balam, ik kil cenote, and Villadolid. Our guide, Lorentino, was SO knowledgable - he should offer this information in a university course! Lorentino was a great guide - he had passion and knowledge. I felt privileged to be gaining information about the Mayans (and Mexico) from a native son. Lorentino was welcoming and I... More

I was in search for a smaller tour group to visit some particular ruins at last minute. I'd spent a good part of the day prior trying to find a company that would meet these needs and just when I was in the verge of giving up, I found Mayans Explorers. They [Rod] were quick to respond to and confirm... More

I am on a mission to visit the 7 Wonders of the world so I booked a private tour (The Mayan Experience) for my birthday. It was the BEST birthday ever! This tour is well put together and our guides were amazing. Murux was caring, friendly, patient and is a genius! As we were leaving Chichen Itza, other tour guides... More

We took a group "cool tour". The weather was "iffy", so many canceled, which left us with a smaller group. The reservation system is easy with pay-pal. We had to adjust our schedules to accommodate the weather. All of which worked out GREAT ! Tulum, zip lines, cave swimming. After we walked, they were ready to give us cool towels,... More

I had read the great reviews on TripAdvisor about this company and was not disappointed. We exchanged emails before we arrived in Mexico and we had planned on a shared tour, The Mayan Experience Tour. When Murux, our guide and the driver arrived at our resort that morning we learned we would have a private tour since the other party... More
