Myself and two friends did a one day private tour with Volker. We visited Coba, Villalido and a nearby cenote. We enjoyed the food and the day seeing Mayan ruins in Coba and the Monastery in Villalido. Both Volker and our driver were wonderful, gracious hosts.

This tour is such a great experience to discover and breathe Mayan culture. In various languages and most important for germans, german Volker is such an emotional and knowledgeable person to moderate the complete day and bring the flavour to you. In small groups, we did a private tour everything is flexible enought to adapt to the situation and your personal wish. As not everything is perfect in Mexican world, it is great to have someone to change plans and create new experiences on the fly. Thank you Volker and hopefully it was not our last time to visit you. Next time we do plan a complete tour with you.

Our tour to Chichen Itza was arranged by Julie Menasco and conducted by Hugo with his driver Luis. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and charmed by both men. They had a wonderful sense of humor that enhanced all of the amazing history of the Mayan Civilization. It was a fascinating experience where we learned a great deal and were treated with the utmost regard for our every need.The Mexican buffet lunch was also authentic and terrific along with the opportunity to swim in the Caldera. Accolades to this tour group and thanks for an unforgettable day.

I am sorry, but you just rated the wrong guide, there is no Hugo and no Luis here and I don't have a SenderoMaya tour.

Where to start? Volker is knowledgeable, fun, and all around great!!! The reviews here are true to his performance as a tour guide. I could listen to his stories for hours. It is amazing how knowledgeable he is about this region and I absolutely love the fact that he is giving back to the community while providing a great tour for his guest. I learned alot and feel very humbled by my experience. Thank you Volker!!! I would highly recommend and hope to be back soon for your #2!

THIS is THE way to get a real sense of Mexico. Volker arrived at our very difficult to find hotel near 5th Ave. in PDC. We casually proceeded to the various stops on the Mexico Lindo tour. By "casual" I mean NON-RUSHED, completely and fully described and experienced. This was our 3rd trip to Mexico, and the insight and knowledge imparted to us by Volker made the remainder of our stay so much more meaningful and enjoyable. It's quite apparent that Volker has a deep love and appreciation for Mexico and its people. Our subsequent trips to the Yucatan WILL include a Volker excursion.
