“Wonderful day!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Doing the snorkeling tour with Edventure Tours was a definite highlight of our trip. We snorkeled the Cenotes, at Akumal and the lagoon. Balam was our guide and was great about sharing historical and cultural information about the places we visited. Fernando was our driver, and we appreciate his promptness and safe driving. Lovely, lovely day. Thank you, Edventure Tours.

“What a FANTASTIC DAY!!!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Our family of six had a wonderful time on the Extreme Tour. Ceasar was great and made it fun for our family. Ed was great to work with and very professional. It was definitely worth it to get the private tour for our family and go at our own pace. And the food at the cenote/zipline was delicious.

“Excellent Tulum/Diving/Snorkeling Tour!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We were very satisfied with this tour company. All the staff was friendly and the activities were exactly what we had planned. I traveled with my dad, and although I am a long time scuba diver, it was my father's first time snorkeling, and the staff was very patient and kind. My dad and I had an unforgettable experience, we visited Tulum, we dived in cenotes (highly recommended), with turtles, and in a laguna, all of which were excellent! The company is also very "connected" so we were able to book and ask questions and confirm everything via email.

“Great Tour...(will definitely be back)”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

To start off the staff is first class. The van pick-up was on time. Even though weather caused there to be no electricity at the main office they still were prepared and ready for a great day of ziplining and snorkeling. The ziplining was fantastic espeically with course layout. The snorkeling in the cenote's was breathtaking. Our guide Brian was first class, his knowledge was ability to help us have a first class experience was great. My wife who is a little apprehensive of the jungle, really enjoyed the experience. The cave dive with flashlights was amazing (my wife's favorite part) Brian even made tjhe ride out of the jungle fun. And to top it off the authentic Mayan lunch was unbelievable. (it trully is cooked in the jungle by Mayan's ) Definitely will be back, Thank you Edventure!

“Worth every penny and then some!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We did the extreme tour with Cesar as our guide. We added the tulum ruins as well. Let me say that the guides wear shirts that have a tag line saying something about Edventure being the best day of your vacation. That line is true! It was such an amazing adventure. We went to the ruins which are stunning with the beautiful ocean as their backdrop. Then racing atv's into the jungle, then zip lining and these crazy bridges. Cesar and the whole crew of guides are making you laugh, snapping photos, and keeping you safe the whole time. You can not help but have a blast. Then you switch gears and swim in two cenotes. The cenotes are unbelievable. The water is so clear you literally can't believe what you are seeing. Again Cesar is snapping pictures making you sure you don't have to worry about capturing this wonderful experience. Then over to cenote two which is terrifying and exhilarating. It's a closed cenote that you snorkel in with a flashlight. I had never snorkel led before, but that was the coolest thing I've ever done. I now want to get scuba certified so I can scuba those amazing cenotes because they are breathtaking. After that was a delicious taco lunch! It was really good! They made accommodations for the vegetarian in the group and there was plenty of beer for everyone. But our day was not done! We loaded up and were off to akumal to swim with the sea turtles. This was a pretty amazing experience too. Akumal beach is gorgeous. We grabbed our snorkel gear and off we went to swim with these gigantic sea turtles. We also saw squid and sting rays. Then we were off to yakul lagoon where the freshwater and the saltwater meet. More snorkeling with some crazy fish. The whole time Cesar snapping pictures, educating us about what we are seeing and experiencing, and most importantly making sure everyone is safe and happy. We were transported back to our hotel exhausted and happy and in awe at all we had done that day and we had a cd full of pictures of all of it. It was our favorite day!
