We chose to do the Go Archaeology Tour because my husband wanted to see both Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. Our guide, Gilberto, was so fascinating. He knew so much about the science and archaeology, but also spoke from his own experience as a local Mayan person growing up with the legends that he could connect to scientific theories. Basically he could tell you what the legends were meant to teach about agriculture and plant-life, because the point of the legends were to pass down knowledge. It was absolutely fascinating to hear him speak and we would not gotten as much out of the experience without his education. It got very hot after we left Chichen Itza and it is imperative to go as soon as it opens as the place gets flooded with people. Gilberto was nice enough to drop my 74 year old mother and 6 year old daughter off at the hotel as they could not take the afternoon heat. Our stop at Cenote San Lorenzo Oxman was super fun. I highly recommend the rope swing. Ek Balam was even more exciting in my opinion because of the carvings and the fact that the site is much more peaceful. If you go, check out the cenote at Ek Balam for me as I wish I could have seen it. The only thing I would have changed about this experience was to see the cenote adjacent to Ek Balam and eat there as well after we saw the archaeological site. That would have made a perfect and fascinating experience even more amazing. You can follow our guide Gilberto on Instagram at gilberto@gtour

We loved our tour guide, Gilberto! It was a small group of us in Christmas Day touring Coba, the Punta Laguna monkey reserve and swimming in a cenote.

My mom and I joined another family for this excursion. All the safety protocols were followed: temperature checks before getting in the van, everything sterilized and we wearing our masks the whole time. This tour company takes safety seriously.

The day was VERY action-packed, but we didn’t move too quickly to enjoy the scenery and ask questions about the culture and history of Mayan culture.

For a small additional fee, we rode canoes across the lagoon to a zip line (that went faster than I expected but I’ve never done it and didn’t really understand how to brake). We then were lowered by rope and harness into a cenote. It had started to get dark and was a little cold in the jungle so we were nervous about getting in cold water. Turns out the cave and water were warmer than the outside so it was a cozy spot. Only after enjoying a swim and climbing back up the rope ladder while bats swirled around us, did
I learn that the cenote is a gateway to the underworld (and historically a burial site) when our tour guide proclaimed that we had returned from Xibalba. I did feel like I’d had a journey of both physical and spiritual proportions that day. I didn’t expect that from a tour company. Highly recommend MexiGo!

My daughter and I chose this tour for Christmas Day! We went bike riding through Coba Mayan Ruins. Lunch was included at the restaurant nearby and was a delicious authentic meal. Next we experienced a true Mayan ceremony and was able to see many spider and howler monkeys. We also canoed across the lagoon to go zip lining. The tour ended with us repelling into a cenote. It was so much fun to see and experience a few of the places that this country has to offer. I highly recommend this tour group as they followed all safety COVID protocols and yet still felt friendly and welcoming. I look forward to my next visit and will use MexiGo Tours again.

The team at Mexigo Tour's are friendly, helpful and have a great attitude. In addition to helping is orgasnise an incredible tour of Chichen Itza, Oxxman Cenote and Ek Balam, the team also provided information on other attractions and must see eventz in the charming magic town of Valladolid. Gilberto our guide was truly exceptional, his knowledge and understanding of Mayan history and traditions was remarkable, he wove all the information into wonderful stories and tales of the land and its people. What's more he has a wonderful sense of humour, was very entertaining and attended to our every need, I highly reccomend Mexigo tours to anyone looking for a high quality professional company to explore the Yucatan. Make sure you ask for Gilberto!!!

Our hotel recommended Mexigo, and that is one more positive I will add to their review. We were treated with courtesy and friendliness by Gilberto, our driver and guide. He is proudly Mayan and obviously loves sharing the history of his culture as expressed in the monuments. That enthusiasm is infectious with learners.

We did the Go Archeology Tour: Chichen Itza - cenote - Ek Balam. It was a wonderful combination, especially with the inclusion of Ek Balam: that is an outstanding place to visit. Google it for details.

As a side note, and there's no guarantee, we had a great little group of fellow travelers. We hailed from Belgium, France, Oregon and Texas. Maybe Mexigo always gets enjoyable groups together?

Transport was comfortable, timely, and very Covid safe. When a small issue arose with a tire on the van, they replaced the van. If touring out of Valladolid, I heartily endorse this team.

José was an incredible guide! He was so helpful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable, and we had a wonderful experience traveling to rio lagartos and Ek-Balan. I could not recommend highly enough after our experience. José always went the extra mile and clearly knows the people and places of the Valladolid area like the back of his hand. We were so lucky to learn so much about the nature and history of this part of the Yucatan from such a knowledgeable and gracious guide. Thanks so much!

We had an amazing day with Gilberto visiting Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. In the middle of the day we visited in Cenote for a wonderful refreshing swim and lunch. Gilberto was such a wonderful guide. So knowledgeable and also attuned to the group and our pace. We could not have asked for a more special and amazing day!

Loved the tour from the day before so much - booked one for the next day to Chichen Itza for my birthday!! So happy to have Gilberto for both days! We were the two of us.
What a special day! Was picked up with a surprise gift: wrapped and everything! MexiGO all the way!
Arrived as one of the first to enter Chichen Itza - private tour full details about Maya culture, maths, legends, stories, and better understanding of how the people thrived and fell -as well as amazing fotos taken by Gilberto of us!
Then the day continued to two Cenotes which were incredible. Snacks and water provided and overall one of the best birthday’s I’ve had.
Thank you!

I'm a quality assurance engineer with a reputation for finding the flaws in the most carefully executed projects. That said, it's difficult for me to imagine a better excursion service than the one provided by Toon and Viviana and company. It's not an exaggeration to say that they defined my visit to Valladolid. My cousin and I (both over 60) enjoyed Go Flamingo, Go Wonders, and an impromptu outing to 'Momentos Sagrados Mayas' in X'ochen. It's amazing how much these guys can pack into a day, and all of it worthwhile and memorable. Friendly, humorous, educated, energetic, compassionate, and well-organized. I could go on, but you get the picture. Don't miss out.

Mexigo is a Belgian owned tour operator that specializes in relatively small scale tours (max 14 pax). We took 4 tours with them. Communication and booking process went very easily. Toon, the friendly owner, was very flexible in accommodating some small customization and provided us with lots of good advice for accommodation & restaurants. Gilberto, our guide for the 4 days was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Mexigo website provides lots of information about what to expect from the tour, what to bring with you, etc. The information was accurate and logistics on the tour days went flawlessly. Mexigo's overall performance was excellent.
I would rate the different tours as follows:
- Go Monkeys: Coba & jungle walk: 4 stars. Coba is OK but definitely not the nicest Maya site in the region. The jungle walk was fun and we spotted both howler and (plenty of) spider monkeys.
- Go Flamingos: bird spotting in Rio Lagardos & Ek Balam: 5 stars. This is a well balanced program between wildlife and cultural activities and Ek Balam was hand-down our favorite Maya site.
- Go Snakes: A dusk visit to a bat cave where hanging boas wait to eat the bats: definitely 5 stars. This was undoubtedly one of the highlights of our 3 weeks trip. It is really an amazing experience but you do need a minimum level of fitness to enjoy it. It starts with a short mountain bike ride through the jungle to get to the cave at dusk, just in time to see the bats leaving it. This is an amazing spectacle! 700.000 bats live in that cave and they fly very close by, almost in your face! You then go crawling through small tunnels were boas are hanging from the rocks, trying to catch the bats! In about 2 hours we saw 7 or 8 snakes, of which 2 in the process of eating a bat. Be prepared: it is hot, sweaty and stinky from the accumulated bat guano. You will come out incredibly dirty. But it is really worth it as you get to witness one of nature most amazing spectacles.
- Go Wonders: Chitsen Itsa and Izamal: 3.5 stars. It was our 4th tour in so many days so we might have been a bit tired, which could have influenced our judgement. We visited Chitsen Itsa in a bilingual French/English group, which meant that all explanations had to be given twice, which made it rather tedious. We also thought that the 1.5 hour of free time after the guided visit were too long.
