The entire day was fantastic from pick up to drop off! Joaquin was our guide and he made the experience awesome! Tulum was beautiful! Zip lining was a blast and snorkeling the cenotes was surreal. Transportation was great and lunch was tasty. Highly recommend it!

This was an amazing trip. Did the Tulum x-treme tour. Was recommended the trip by the concierge at our resort. Driver picked up our group and that is when the fun started. We had Izzy (would highly recommend) who made the trip fun and a great experience. Felt safe at all times. Izzy took to time to show you the different events (zip line, rappelling) and made sure you were comfortable. Explained everything you had questions about. Was provided a great lunch. Would go on the trip again and would request Izzy again. Recommend the company and the excursion!

This is a zip lining (3 lines), rappelling, and snorkeling (in the ocean to see huge turtles and a cenote to see thousands of years of rock formations) adventure. Each of the four activities was fun and safe. We credit most of the fun of the trip to our tour guide, Israel "Izzy" (for short). He played the role of bus driver, guide, safety advisor, and comedian. His English was great and you could tell he genuinely loves what he does. He made us all feel like a part of the tour, fostered a really fun environment, and amazed us with his tricks and fun facts. Some in our group were facing their fears, and he was excellent at easing them into doing each adventure. For those of us who weren't afraid or had done similar things before, he spent time teaching us new things, and making sure our trip was special. I don't think I ever stopped laughing, and especially loved Izzy and my husband's ridiculous jokes back and forth. Izzy definitely knows how to read people and made sure he met each of our needs for safety and encouragement as well as fun. Seeing turtles, cenotes, and the tops of trees would have been great with any of the guides, I'm sure, because the area is astounding, but Israel was definitely the icing on the cake... If you can request him, I would... He was incredible! And P.S. the food included in the tour was a delicious buffet... One of the best meals we had all week!

We enjoyed the tour very much. Had an excellent tour guide name Jesus. He was the most informative and fun tour guide we had ever experienced. He really loves his job and gives you his full attention. Lerned alot from him. Well worth the $. One recomendation....to do attempt this excersion hung over. There is a 1 1/2 hr of swimming right off the bat. Also bring some biodegradable un tan lotion. They will not let you swim in the water with out it. We also purchased the DVD at the end of the tour. It will cost $30 and well worth it. Awesome time!!

We did the Aventuras Mayas Snorkel Extreme, and really loved the snorkel aspect of it. We did 80 minutes of snorkeling in the ocean at Akumal with Sea Turtles. Our guide, Alex, was wonderful. We saw 5-6 sea turtles and 1 baby sea turtle, along with a sting ray and a barracuda. Next we went to the Estrella Cenote and snorkeled through there, which was cool. Not as thrilling as the sea turtles, but cool. Then was zip lining and rappelling. I'm scared of heights, so my partner did those- she said they were fun, but not amazing, so that was a little disappointing- they did the best thing first, and so the final 3 were a little bit of a downer.
Overall we really liked that they offered such a great all-day package, including transportation, which is great. Only thing I'd have changed, besides more snorkeling and less rappelling and zip lining, would be to make lunch in the middle of the day rather than the end. We went from 8AM-2PM without any food! Thank goodness we brought snacks...

Thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of the world! We´re happy to read you had a fun day exploring the Riviera Maya with Alex, we´ll make sure to pass along the great comments. We´re sorry to hear you didn´t get to enjoy our zip lines, it would´ve been an excellent way to overcome your fear of heights, we hope next time you´re in the area you´ll try them. We´ll make sure to tell our staff to remember to have lunch earlier to avoid our guests miss on the fun because they´re starving, Vuelve pronto!
