Sailed out of New Orleans on the Carnival Ship Elation on April 15, in Progresso, Yucatan on the 17th. I had read here on Trip Advisor about Auto Progresso Tours, so decided to give them a try for the Merida and Mayan Ruins tour. Our guide was Ivan (highly recommended!) It was a fast paced tour, but we had a guide who was very informative on the history of the Mayans. The cenote was amazing, as was the ruins themselves! We saw some of the impressive landmarks in Merida and had wonderful authenic Mayan food in a little restaurant in Merida. The bus was air conditioned and clean! (it was HOT in Progresso!)
My traveling friend and I were celebrating our 60th birthday's with this cruise, so we are a couple of older gals. At no time did we feed uncomfortable on this tour, or at any time, while in the Yucatan. The cost per person was $39, well worth the money.
Yes, you will encounter street vendors in Merida, a polite "No, Thanks" works well.
