Kasi and Melvin took excellent care to make sure our family had a great time and learned a lot. We happened to be the only people who booked this excursion, so we got a private tour. Even though the drive is a bit further than the other ruins, it was definitely worth it. We got to see life in rural... More

Great tour with guide Joel and driver Rito. Joel is from the area and really helped us understand life there and of course really knew the history and culture that produced the monuments. He spoke excellent English.

We had an amazing time with Kasi and Tacho. We did the tour independent of our cruise line and we are glad we did! It was cheaper and Kasi was much more knowledgeable than our previous tour guide at the Ruins. Casi was so knowledgeable! She provided insight and stories which even entertained our teenagers! The tour provided us bottles... More

This was an awesome tour! Kasi and Alejandro were the best. He was an awesome driver and Kasi was so friendly and knowledgeable about Chacochoben and the Mayan people. Lunch was great and the drinks and chips at the lagoon were perfect. Would recommend this tour for sure!!

I posted a review for Dzibanche that we did with Native Choice. I was a little hesitant to book a tour that wasn't through the cruise line, but so happy that I did. We had a great tour to Dzibanche with Lorenzo. His first concern was making sure that we all got back on time. Then it was on the... More

We had a wonderful tour of the Chachobben site with our guides Enrique and Fecundo. After a short walk to our meeting place, we boarded an older but still comfortable bus on time for the 1 hour ride. Both guides have interesting presentations on the ride there. Enrique, who led our walking tour, had a genuine love of Mayan culture... More

We loved the Chacchoben Extreme Tour through Native Choice. Started with a super interesting tour or the ruins (it was hot, lots of water was provided). Next we were taken to a wonderful authentic lunch (amazing fajitas & fresh squeezed pineapple juice). Then we spent some time at a beautiful, fresh water lagoon for swimming, cocktails, and snacks. Our tour... More

Our Native Choice Tour, led by Kasi, was one of the highlights of our cruise. She was very friendly, enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Mayans and the ruins. She also took us from the ruins to a beautiful resort for lunch and relaxation. Kasi should be commended for her professionalism and commitment to her job.

Our guide for the day was Kasi. Kasi was friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Our driver was Rito. He was courteous, friendly and above all a very safe driver. Would thoroughly recommend either of these 2 people. They are a credit to their organisation. Thank you so much for making our stay such a memorable one.

We did the Mayan Experience tour and it was fabulous. The walk from the ship to the office wasn't bad. There were quite a few people walking in the same direction. We were in a nice van with 12 of us total. Our guide, Ivan, was fantastic. Really knows his stuff!! The ruins were something to see, and we appreciated... More
