Everything about this tour was great. Francisco picked us up on time from our hotel. He took us to a great spot Oscar and Lalos for a bite for breakfast. Then off to the turtle bay for some of the most amazing snorkeling I have ever seen. We saw turtles, a sting rays and beautiful coral reefs. Then we visited the lagoon and then the caves. One more spectacular than the next. We were alone on our tour. For an extra 30. Francisco who has a great underwater camera took our pictures the entire day. Beyond the places we went which were truly awe inspiring, our guide Francisco and this tour group is top notch. They spare nothing from excellent snorkeling equipment to comfortable vans. We were picked up about 730 and topped off our day having lunch at Oscar a Lalos. The food and atmosphere were remarkable. We met Virginia there the owner who is a a warm and friendly host as is her spider monkey lala. If you are looking for a tour with safe adventure, warmth, entertainment and the feeling that you are being taken care of well you will love this tour outfit. I would recommend this for kids too. The day went from 7 to 3. Perfect,

This was truly a wonderful day! We booked Tulum extreme with Dos Ojos.

Francisco was waiting for us in our lobby right on time. He took us to Tulum got us settled, and we went and explored this beautiful place. There were maybe five others in the park with us, but when it was time to leave hundreds were coming in. They really know how to get you in and out around the crowds.
We went on to zip line, canoe, cliff dive, and snorkel in the cenotes. Ate a wonderful lunch then snorkeled in a lagoon.

It was a great day, with great people. There was never a time I felt unsafe. Francisco was excellent! I didn't have the opportunity to meet Virginia, this time. Next time I'm in the area, I will book another excursion with them, and would recommend them to anyone.

We did the snorkel tour plus Tulum ruins. Pickup from our hotel was on time. There were 4 of us in our group, and an additional 2 people from another resort came with us Francisco was awesome. He got us into Tulum nice and early and we beat all of the crowds--that in itself was totally worth it. The three different snorkeling areas were breathtaking. I'm not sure which one was my favorite because they were all amazing in their own rite. Lunch was delicious, and hanging out with Lala was hilarious. If we are ever in the area I would book another tour with them without hesitation. Thanks for a great day guys!

My wife and I had scheduled the extreme expedition during our honeymoon in Playa del Carmen, and we're so greatful we did. Our ride showed up on time (early actually) and were happy to find out that we lucked out and would have the tour all to ourselves. Our tour guide (Francisco) was excellent - very sociable, tons of great stories and always trying to make us as comfortable as possible. The tour also included all the gear for us, including snorkel gear, fins, flashlights, wetsuits, and Francisco as our own personal photographer! The first stop, cave diving at Dos Ojos Cenote, was definetly the highlight and a very unique experience. We had a blast snorkeling our way through the caves. The next stop was zip lining, canoeing and cliff jumping into a cenote - all great experiences and so much fun. The lunch at Oscar and Lalos was another memorable experience - we got the chance to meet Virginia, the owner, and little Lala the spider monkey. The food was amazing to say the least - very fresh and the chaya/pineapple juice is a must. Virginia is a sweetheart, great hostess and truly enjoys spending time with visitors - it's a very personal experience and we felt like part of the family. Speaking of family, Lala is a trip - this rascal monkey has so much character and loves playing with guests. We finished the day snorkeling at the lagoon and watching all types of fish - again we were informed to take as much time as we would like and just make sure to enjoy ourselves. In fact, we never felt rushed at any point during the day, no stress at all. In summary - the locations are beautfiul/one-of-a-kind and the day progresses at a nice pace, but its really the staff that makes the experience truly memorable. Thanks to Francisco, Virginia, Lala, and the rest of the Riviera Adventours staff for making this day on our honeymoon the great experience that it was. We will definitely be back in the future for more adventures!

We did the snorkel tour plus tulum ruins. I'll be brief. Pick up was perfectly on time. Van is spacious and modern. Staff are nicest people in the world. Tulum was incredible. Cenotes were amazing. a MUST VISIT. Lagoon snorkeling was very good but a little short of spectacular. snorkeling with sea turtles was incredible as was snorkeling on the reef. Our guides were Yuri and Francisco, and our driver was Mr. E. All 3 were the sweetest most helpful people. And as a bonus, they treat you to lunch at their restaurant. the food was absolutely delicious. cannot say enough nice things about this company. Im just sorry they are ranked 5 and not 1. I cannot believe they can be topped.
