Having not much time, time is the thing you want to maximize. A Quality Private tour will make the difference. I trust TAdvisor, I have used its services many times. Through TAdvisor I found the Private tour service of Yucatan Excursions. The reviews I read on TA were very good, I am not disappointed at all with the services we received from Polo. He is professional, with a sense of humor and passion for the job he does. He makes it clear, he works for you when you hire his services, he has the knowledge to make suggestions and the wisdom to respect what you want from your trip. Our day trip to Campeche was a lot more than we expected, we really got the flavor of Mexico, visiting local markets, small towns and secret places. We enjoyed the day trip so much that we asked for his services for another private tour to Celestun, Our experience to Celestun was superb thanks to Polo's connections and expertise. If you like freedom and comfort I would recommend the services of Yucatan Excursions with Polo.

I don’t know if I can adequately express how fortunate my parents and I were to book Polo for a private tour. This was the best part of our trip to Mexico and we couldn’t have had a better guide to take care of us. I’ve traveled a lot and hands down, Polo beats out the competition, not only in Mexico but also other countries I’ve visited.

While the tour has a specified itinerary, he took the time to get to know us, our needs and interests, and then made recommendations based off that, so he was flexible in what we did. He was very informative, gracious, and personable the whole day. He genuinely cares about providing a quality experience and I will never consider hiring anyone else if I ever make it back to see more of this amazing country.

Polo, I wish you a life filled with prosperity, peace and happiness!

What a great day! We were picked up at our vacation rental in a comfy, clean, air conditioned car. We chose a private tour so it was only two of us. Polo was our guide and he was great. We were able to determine how we wanted to spend our day but relied heavily on him because of his knowledge of the area. Our first stop was in Becal where we were able see the art of making a “jipi hat. Polo translated for us throughout this experience and we were able to purchase very nice quality hats. Our next stop was at a the village of Pomuch for bread. We stopped at panaderia La Huachita and picked up some delish goodies. Then on to Campeche. Polo took us on tour of the large Mercado sharing insight on the local fruits, veggies and other food. One of the most interesting being the small sharks. We even sampled some of the food. Polo then guided us to the other attractions we wanted to see. After we explored at our leisure he would meet back up with us to take us to the next place. We finished with a wonderful lunch at a local waterfront restaurant. I highly recommend using this company for any excursion. They are totally flexible with your schedule for the day catering to your personal interest. They also provide the perfect balance of guided time and free time alone to wander wander around. The excursion was absolutely perfect.

THANK YOU, for your review, it is really important for us to know that you lived the desired experience, we know how you feel when you arrive at a place you do not know and want to know and see as much as you can of that place! It is one of the reasons why we keep our tours private, without strict agendas, so that each of our guests can enjoy our tours in their own way and time. A big hug and waiting for you for a new adventure in the Yucatan Peninsula!

We utilized Yucatan Excursions for 3 days of our trip over New Years 2020 and were very pleased. The owner, Polo, is extremely friendly and outgoing. We were primarily with Argel, who drove us from Cancun to Merida, then a day trip to Uxmal, a hacienda, a cenote, and the chocolate museum. Since the museum was closed for New Years, he offered instead to take us to the beach (and a great seafood place on the beach) in Progreso. The next day, we did Chichen Itza and another cenote (bigger and more developed) on the way back to Cancun. Fair prices, friendly service with knowledgeable and hospitable and accommodating hosts. You can let them plan or you can offer input - they're flexible either way. Highly recommend.

THANK YOU for your review, we send you a big hug from Argel and Polo!

Polo y Rodrigo were fantastic tour guides! They went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them for any tour. They went later than the time planned with no additional charge. They will totally change plans based on your plans. Also, they are so nice and knowledgeable!! Highly recommend! We will use them again next time we are in Mérida
