We were really looking forward to this trip after reading the reviews on this site, and we had a brilliant time.
The drive to Chichen Itza was fascinating as Jerry explained the history of the region and Mayans.
Both my teenage children found Jerry interesting and asked him lots of questions which he answered clearly, it was a real pleasure to have a family day out to one of the wonders of the world which we all enjoyed so much. Much of the enjoyment came from the way Jerry guided us round the temple and explained the significance of each aspect.

We felt very safe with Alberto's excellent driving and Jerry as guide.
After the sightseeing we had a great lunch and a magical experience swimming in a cenote. This truly was a trip of a life time. Jerry loves history, nature and is proud of his Mexican heritage which we have been privileged to share with for a day. Jerry is excellent value, if we ever visit Mexico again we will definitely ask Jerry to take us again.

Jerry is an extremely knowledgable and informative guide. We took 2 separate excursions and both were a lot of fun. We learned far more than we ever would have on a bus tour. Jerry took us to two locations for authentic Mexican cuisine, which was very good - as well as assisted us with translation and what to buy when we were interested in purchasing items from locals. Jerry's personality is warm, friendly and down to earth - with a great sense of humor. Rather than a guide we feel we have a friend in Mexico!
We will definitely use Jerry again when we return to Cancun.
If you are looking for a guide, we would highly recommend Jerry.

I recently went on a tour with Gerardo ( Jerry) Ham. We went to the ruins of Coba, and to the Choo Ha Cenote. It was a wonderful, educational & fun day! We learned so much about the ruins, and were so amazed at the beauty of the underground cenote. Jerry is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Mayan Ruins, and makes the learning experience lots of fun! I highly recommend going on a tour with Jerry --- you won't regret it!

Jerry was great from the minute he met us at the hotel. He was on time and waiting for us. He was very friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with. The drive to Chichen Itza was filled with information about Mexico, the Yucatan, Mayan culture and Chitchen Itza.
Chichen Itza was amazing - we loved every minute and Jerry had more information for us then we could take in - exactly what we wanted.
Lunch was very very nice buffet and swimming at the cenote was incredible. We have never been anywhere like that before. My son did some diving from the higher ledge. It was relaxing and refreshing.
On the drive home we stopped at the colonial city of Valladolid, walked around the common grabbed a quick drink and headed back to to the hotel.
It was a great day. We will be back to Cancun and will be booking another excursion with Jerry. I would even do the same tour again in a couple years.
This was so much better and personal then the large bus tours that we saw Chichen Itza being herded around the site.
Thank you very, very much for an amazing day. See you next year.

We used Jerry to book a trip in an area of the Yucatan we did not know. He hit our preferences right on the money, booking great hotels at good prices. No one could have done better.
