Reviewed February 13, 2013

The whole tour was educational. We visited Mayan ruins, swam in cenote, ate an authentic Mayan lunch and visited a small village. We met the shaman and mid-wife who graciously opened her home to us so we could see how she lives. Our guide was very informative and we were given time to shop for souvenirs at the end of the trip. My only dislike was the transportation. Would have like more room for the length of the trip.

“Worth the long drive from playa del Carmen”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We took a the day trip to see both Tulum and Coba. What a lovely experience. Our guide was informative and definitely added to the experience. I found this much more authentic than Chichen Itza.

“Marvellous”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We took the trip from our resort and liked it very much.Our lunch was included but drinks are not included.The coba village is very nice and one can climb the pyramid which has 105 steps and it is 42 meters high but once you come down, there is a rope so it is easy to come down.It was very hot.It was 2 km walk to actual pyramid and some people rented the bicycle and others took 3 wheeler but we walked and while coming back, we took 3 wheeler and paid 100 peso for return journey for two of us.
