If you're in Tulum and want a nice private Tour at your pace with a super knowledgeable guide, Eli is your man. All of the excellent reviews re Eli are correct. He has so much to share of the Mayan culture and history. He's a great guy, too. We also toured the Tulum ruins with him, as well. At Coba, he also took us to a great Mayan lunch nearby, and also to a beautiful Cenote. Derek, who works with Eli, was the best at giving us all kinds of advice of what to do, where to go, where to eat, where to exchange money, etc., and was available at all times to give good information.

Eli was our guide and he is very knowledgeable of Mayan history and culture. He was very thorough in the tour and picked the best picture spots! Please take this tour to learn the history of the ruins! Eli even waited a few minutes after the tour for me to buy a piece of obsidian. Highly recommend! Ask for Eli!

We went on two tours with Eli a will monkey tour that ended in the most stunning lagoon and a modified snorkeling/ Tulum ruins boat tour due the the ruins re-closing unexpectedly. From minutes after I emailed the company, Derek responded almost immediately and was quite helpful. Eli is a wonderful tour guide- genuine, punctual, knowledgeable, accommodating, and fantastic with children and families. We cannot wait to return to Tulum to further explore the region with Eli.

The world is crazy right now, so we thought we'd escape to Mexico. With the ever-changing rules and closures, we waited until the week before to reach out. Within minutes, Derek wrote us back and we pieced together a tour. It wasn't one currently on the books, but within the next day it was uploaded and available to book. I appreciated the communication, flexibility, and knowledge they have. Eli is a wonderful guide and a true ray of sunshine. The ruins were closed when we visited, so part of our snorkel trip went by the ruins so he could show us something from the water and talk about how amazing they were. From beginning to end, Eli had so much knowledge and made everything seamless and fun. He was prepared with all the equipment we could need, water, snacks, anything! It was the first tour I've been on that felt like a good friend was showing us around, not just a guide. There's no other tour group out there that offers this level of service, kindness, and fun.

We had an amazing time! The tour guide Eli was great. Kids loved it! A trip to the jungle is a must when visiting Mexico. We rescued an endangered baby ‘Ocelot‘ on the way to the Jungle...really was a highlight to our trip! Would love to hear if it survived, and how it’s doing ☺️ Definitely recommend *****
