Jaime & Isaac were everything you could want from a travel agency: super helpful, easy going, knowledgeable, friendly, and cool. Highly recommended.

These guys look reputable but are not. Pic attached! We are Australian so it was quite a distance for us to travel to playa del Carmen, so we had done our research and knew exactly where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. Ik kil cenote and chichen itza were on our list so we started talking... More

Super dodgy - didn't even turn up at the nominated time and place to pick us up and wanted full cash payment. Luckily we only left a deposit. Plenty of other reputable tour operators to choose from.

The when there, It took over 2h for a 15 minutes ride. They were herding us like cows. Ridiculous! The way back, they never came. They were supposed to take us back to the hotel from the bus stop down tow but we had to take a taxi back. There were a lot of people extremely upset. They only take... More

We got picked up at 9:30 from the hotel and taken on to the "meeting point" which was outside bambu tours offices. Where we went on to wait a further 45 minutes for the coach which was parked round the corner. There was an incident involving a lady which wasn't under their control. Then we didn't get to xcaret park... More

They totally screwed us over and wouldn't drive us home unless we paid more than we probably paid for drop off service.

Hi I'm jaime. I´m really sorry that you were without the money. A person from Bambu tours passed through the hotel to give over 110 usd on saturday but the reception would not be responsible for money. We leave a note for pasarais for the office, but I'm clear they didnt deliver it. I very much regret this situation and... More

The good- They were very responsive to emails. Communications and descriptions were accurate and prompt. The not so good- Communication from the US had to be by email. I tried calling several times, but the phone numbers were either not working or the person who answered couldn't speak English The bad- This is a booking agent, not a tour operator.... More

It is important to know that bambu tours did not directly organize my tour. It was actually through Easy Tours. I was able to pay for the tour in full prior to leaving for Mexico on PayPal. This was important to me as I don't like carrying a lot if cash. The staff with bambu tours is excellent at answering... More
