Private Tour to Tulum

Just did some research and found that a private tour for 2 people to Tulum would be $200 plus guide fees of $35 US from Entertainment Plus.

Would it be cheaper to catch a taxi both ways?

Probably, but not by much, after paying for the taxi and tip, entrance fees to the park and your own guide(if needed) on site. Depending on the season, your Spanish and negotiating capabilities, between, it's likely a $150-$175 US RT w/o tip if not more unless you can get a local's rates. And, it's doubtful that w/o a RT price that any Cancun/ Isla Mujeres/Tulum Taxi is not going to charge even more than that if you're not planning on using them for a return for a combined service (which of course means the driver needs to hang out for a few hours doing nothing before you return)

Obviously, there's the various buses and collectivos etc as an option which are much, much cheaper each way but that kind of defeats the idea of private transport & guide.

E.P.'s got a solid rep in the area and the rates from this vantage seem reasonable.

You could try contacting Plutarco (Plu) on Isla. He's a cab driver and speaks great English and is highly recommended by people for tours around Isla, etc. I don't know if he would consider a trip to Tulum but it doesn't hurt to ask. You can contact him at: Cell # 998.145.9747 or home 888.0528.

It's a long trip to Tulum and I really can't see it being much less than 200 round trip but it's worth a try.

There are cheaper ways to go if you want to work at it more, but the private tour with e-plus is a fair price for the distance and the service.
