We booked the extreme tulum package of visiting the Tulum ruins, snorkelling, zip wire and kayaking. Lisa and Jorge enhanced our seamless booking procedure by being the perfect guide and driver for the day. We were highly delighted to be the only people on the tour - standard practice for this firm! Our family of 4 had an unforgettable day seeing all sides of Mexico. Even torrential rain during the zip wire and kayaking session failed to dampen our total enjoyment of the day. The icing on the cake being the end our tour meal and the antics of Laya, the affectionate spider monkey. If you want individual attention and extreme value for money then book with these guys. If you don't then book with your tour company!!

We took 3 trips with Riviera Adventours, the Sian Ka'an trip with Yuri and Jorge, the Tulum Extreme trip with Lisa and Jorge and the Chichen Itza trip with Francisco and Jorge. Each trip was packed full of activities and made the most of the time we had available. All of the tour guides were brilliant and very respectful of the environments we went to. These tours made our honeymoon, we were able to swim with turtles, see amazing ruins, be adventurous swimming in lots of different cenotes and float down a Mayan canal. I would recommend this company to book your tours with, because the group sizes are so small (two of our trips were just us!). We met Virginia, the owner, on each of our trips, she was lovely. She was very welcoming. There was PLENTY of food and drink available throughout the day and it was all really good.

My Husband and I booked the snorkeling tour. Picked up by Yuri our tour guide, he took us on an amazing adventure! It was a smaller group and Yuri made it feel like we where on a trip with a very knowledgeable best friend. This tour has it down. With an early pick up time you beat the rush. As we snorkeled with sea turtles it was just us five. We saw a turtle every five seconds. Latter passing by that area was so packed you wouldn't be able to see much. Yuri's snorkeling tour made our honeymoon! We had so much fun that we booked the tour he was guiding the very next day for the tulum ruins. Again not disappointed. After your tour is fully completed you get to meet Virginia the owner. She is the sweetest person you'll find in Mexico. Making sure she gives everyone a hug before they go.
The food alone was by far the best fish we have EVER had and well worth the price of the tour alone. After an amazing meal you get to meet Virginia's daughter! A spider monkey named La la. She was truly in love with my husband. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JrE04qF1rto ) link to our video 98% is our amazing time with Yuri. We are only going back for our 1year because of our two day adventurous with RIVIERA ADVENTOURS!

We booked this excursion through our Thomson rep and were pleasantly surprised by the small group and personal approach. Our guide, Miguel, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable- he even talked my sister into the rappelling despite her fear of heights! There was a great mix of things to do which kept everyone happy- I loved snorkelling in the clear dark water of the cenote; the kids loved the zipwires (though I admit I did too) and the trip to Tulum, the Mayan city of Dawn, was fascinating. There was also a Mayan blessing performed in a dark, candle-lit cave which felt genuinely special.
I didn't know what to expect as our trip to Chichen Itza, also booked through Thomson, was on a large coach and although interesting was much less personal. The Adventours experience was much better!
Tips before you go- DO NOT forget to put on insect repellant. The mosquitoes in the jungle get up early and like a Scottish (or English) breakfast!

Hola! I just got back from an amazing trip from cancun! It was great because of the excursion with Riviera Adventures. I love that you were able to customize the tour with the activities that our group was interested in. We did so much in one day but its a great way to explore the country! It was such an amazing day! They were so awesome for our group of 25 ppl. The vans were comfy and nicely air condition! They were very accommodating from sun block to old Mayan stories! The restaurant we had lunch at was so good! Also, we got to meet a cute spider monkey Lola. She was so adorable and playful! It was a an awesome experience from beginning to the end with our tour guides Lisa and Francisco! Thanks to them my trip was amazing!
