This was, by far, the best tour Mom and I have been on because Eli made it fabulous! I cannot say enough about the tour, Eli is not just a tour guide, he's a history teacher, ambassador for his country, and just a fabulous human. Eli took the time to teach us about Tulum, he was patient with all of my questions (and I had a lot), he willingly took a bunch of photos of us and made sure we were safe with sunscreen and a hat. It was also awesome to know that he supported his friends in the tourism industry to make sure they succeeded as well. We saw huge groups of people following one tour guide, which made us appreciate Eli all the more. Eli also encouraged my Spanish - he didn't have to because he speaks perfect English. But he took the time to work with me, he corrected me with patience and gave the me the words to help me complete conversations. Book with Eli and let him show you Tulum. You will have a greater respect for Tulum, Mexico, and people afterward! ¡Gracias Eli! Mamá y yo te deseamos el mayor de los éxitos.

10/10 recommend! Eli came and picked us up at our hotel, stopped by an ATM for me to get pesos, snack stop for the drive to the pyramids! He was very engaging, excellent English if your worried about communication. After a few hours touring Chichen Itza he took us to an authentic Mayan roadside restaurant where we had amazing Mayan lunch and cervezas! Best meal yet! After lunch we went to a beautiful cenote to finish off the day! We never felt rushed and felt like spending the day with a friend who was a “local”. After the cenote he brought us back to our hotel. About a 8-9 hour day total. Enjoyed all of it

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 could not travel due to the travel restrictions brought in to lockdown our country. Eli's team were so understanding about this, and the booking we had to cancel.

As soon as we can we will be rebooking with them. Not like some other operators who have refused to refund any money to us and shown their true nature of bad customer service..

What truly wonderful people Eli's team are.
We cannot wait to actually make this tour in Mexico.

Stay safe everyone.

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!

The Tulum Mayan Ruins were so amazing to see.
You can also bring your bathing suit and go swimming in the amazing ocean that is right there.
Make sure you have alot of water and good walking shoes with you. A tour guide is very helpful,they will explain everything about the ruins, they are very knowegable.
Come early because it's get really crowded.

We have made numerous trips to Tulum. We love touring with Yucatan Eli’s Tours. We only tour with Yucatan Eli. The guides are extremely knowledgeable of the Mayan history and culture. As they are talking it is so easy to visualize life then. The guides make the tours interesting and fun. We did the wild monkey tour. It was so fun to see the monkeys in their natural habitat. Walking thru the jungle we saw a few small areas of ruins and came out to a beautiful cenote. Yucatan Eli”s always provides snacks and water and makes sure everyone is doing ok and are safe. We are going to Tulum in the fall and will be touring with Yucatan Eli’s Tours again. We are so looking forward to our next trip. BEST TOURS EVER!

Simply the most amazing day to Sian Ka'an and Muyil ruins. From the moment Eli picked us up, he was engaging polite and very knowledgeable. We were on the first boat crossing the lagoon at Sian Ka'an, so it was to tranquil when we floated down the river. The Muyil ruins were so quiet compared to other sites, so they felt more sacred somehow. We saw storks and herons, a monkey and even a snake and Eli shared so much information about the Mayan culture and the symbolism of the buildings.
A once in a lifetime experience
