Reviewed September 2, 2012

We visited the Ruins of Chichen-Itza, where the Mayas played ball and sacrificed the loosing team captain, the refreshing and blue turquoise Ik-kil cenote, and Akumal (which no body should miss by the way). We we swam with the sea turtles at Akumal and watched them eat sea grass. All along, Virginia, our tour guide, was very helpful in guiding us and telling us exactly what not to do and touch when walking in the jungle. We were very glad to have her with us. On one of our outings with Virginia she took us to an amazing cenote called Tankah. We Zip-lined, did some canoeing, and some snorkeling all in same day. We were dead after that but the kids loved it! We felt totally safe with our Riviera-Adventours tour guide Virginia. She was awesome! She knew everything about how to guild us and keep us feeling safe in the jungle.

We will definitely go back and I will make our reservations with Riviera-Adventours again. We were not disappointed and neither will you.

“Awesome Tours!!! The Best!!! We loved it!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We're NATURE LOVERS!!! Riviera Adventours offered us with the opportunity to see the most magnificent places in Tulum and the Rivieria. We booked them because they were rated five stars on trip advisor. We did several tours. Tulum ruins, cenote snorkeling, snorkeling with the most beautiful sea turtles. Birds' island. Virginia is a top notch expert in the Rivieria. She was so so so so accommodating to my teenagers' needs and the adults' needs. She goes beyond to ensure that you're safe, have a fantastic time and offers lots of healthy snacks and drinks. Their van is AC and super clean and comfortable. :Highly recommend them for everybody newlyweds, families, singles. I'm booking my next trip in September and cannot wait to swim with the whales in the ocean!!!!!! Rivieria Adventours here we come again!!! :)

“Fun Day”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We just happen to stop at Oscar and Lalo's restaurant and met Virginia, the owner of the restaurant and Riviera Adventours, we signed up for 2 of the all day adventures on the spot, the Tulum Extreme Plus and the Whale Shark Adventure. We were traveling with 4 families ages 8-53. Everyone one of us had the best time!! It was everything she said it would be and more. It was lots of fun, very adventurous, the food was delicious and the guides were awesome!! I highly recommend the tour company and the restaurant. We also thought it was a great value for the price. Do it.

“Snorkeling + Ziplining was awesome!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We picked Riviera Adventours based on the reviews here on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed at all. We were with one other couple and did the snorkeling package w/ziplining. Francisco was our guide and he was incredibly knowledgable about the area and its history and gave us a lot of information throughout the day. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and sought to treat us like family. We had a great time and never felt rushed. The others chose to swim on w/out life jackets so that they could dive deeper into the water, but I wasn't comfortable doing so; a life jacket was provided for me. They had a lot of backup equipment just in case something didn't work out, though when you book, they ask for your sizing info so that they can provide you w/the best fit. We saw a great variety of wildlife and scenery (cenotes, lagoons, ocean. My husband and I loved the lunch at Oscar & Lalos. Since we were staying at an all-inclusive resort, we didn't have any authentic Mexican food so we were pretty blown away. Not to mention we fell in love with Lala, the pet monkey of the owner!
