My three traveling companions and I took a private tour to Chichen Itza with Special Mayan Tours. It was arranged by the Westin Lagunamar concierge for us. A fantastic tour, led by Sergio, who is very knowledgeable about Chichen Itza and the local area. We were not hurried at all during the day, and Sergio and his driver were very accommodating. I would definitely use them again.

We signed up for a tour of Chichen Itza at our Westin Villas in Cancun. There were 11 family member and we all felt were so lucky to find Pepe Lopez at Mayan Expeditions ! He was simply amazing. His knowledge ( not only of Chichen Itza but all of Mexican past history) was incredible! Besides that his personality was wonderful ! We were never rushed and he was so patient with our many questions ! We really found a friend !! Luck us !! The Wallace Family

We recently went on the Mayan Heritage Package with the special Mayan tours company which was a 5 day 4 night tour that showed us numerous mayan sites all of which we were introduced, explained and guided through by the fanatastic driver and guide team. We saw several smaller sites which we had completely to ourselves, each one offering something different and a new insight to the Mayan.

During our time we also toured alot of the yucutan area seeing several different cities and reaching some of the less touristy areas including things we probably would not have reached ourselves had we been touring alone.

The guys helped us with all our questions, let us change the tour slightly to squeeze in things that we wanted to see that weren't on the itenary and helped to recommend several local foods and restraunts. Organising the trip was simple and efficient with Pepe answering all questions quickly

We really enjoyed our time and could not have better guide or driver we would definitely recommend this tour company.

Pepe Lopez (Guide) and Manuel (Driver) were super helpful and informative. Using a smaller tour service means there are no long milk runs for pick ups at all the hotels on the strip and no similar drop offs at the end of the day. The result is arrival at the place of interest in a more timely fashion way ahead of all the tour buses.
This also allows for time flexibility. You can spend more or less time at the places you visit as you wish.
Pepe was very helpful and informative and obviously knows his history inside and out. He says he has been a guide for 12 years, loves it and it shows.
I would not hesitate to recommend Special Mayan Tours. Having taken a larger bus tour on a previous visit there is no comparison.

One of the best tours we have ever taken. Our driver (Manuel) and guide (Pepe) were really great and provided us with outside information regarding both Coba and Tulum. We had more than adequate time at both locations. This was truly a private tour with special attention to our needs. Lunch in Akumal was wonderful and you should try the fried fish.
