Owner description: If you are looking for a great outdoor experience away from the big tourist crowds and massive tour groups, then you make the best decision by visiting the natural Reserve of Sian Ka'an with Visit Sian Ka'an. This tour company allows you to visit Sian Ka'an and combine activites in a way, that no other tour provider does, thanks to the owner's first hand experience and being a native to the area. If you are a great nature lover, enjoy to snorkel and explore the diverse marine life and different ecosystems, such as untouched beaches, lagoons, mangroves and islands, cenotes, tropical jungle, hidden maya ruins, a relaxing float in the fresh water canal, seeing bird and wildlife in their natural habitat without minimal human interaction - then this tour company will be a great option for an adventurous day in the protected Biosphere Reserve Sian Ka'an.

We had the pleasure of meeting Aldo on our recent trip to Tulum. I have to say having heard all those wonderful things about him online we were very keen to meet him and experience a great Sian Ka'an adventure with this company.
So we contacted him and Katrin through their contact emails. From the first contact, everything was great. They answered every question we had and the day started out with a pick up from our hotel, ( organized by them). We took the Snorkeling tour with the float in the Mayan Canal. It was awesome. Aldo is such an expert in his field, knows exactely where to find birds, crocs, manatees, so we had a great time seeing all kinds of different birds such as ibis, herons, storks, stingrays and even crocodiles.
The coral reef was amazing, there was no rush throughout the whole day. Aldo gave us always the time we wanted in each activity. The tour only consisted of us, my husband and I and another very friendly young swedish couple. We had a great private tour. Aldo is very accomodating and friendly, answering every question we had and just sharing his great love and knowledge for this beautiful place and wildlife. We rather thought to be out on a trip with old friends instead of a trip with people we have never met before. The float down the Mayan Canal was awesome, so refreshing and relaxing, swiming along the mangroves was a new wonderful experience. We felt so connected with nature during his tour. On our next trip we want to try another tour with Visit Sian Ka'an Tours.

The food throughout the tour was delicious, local specialities and healthy nut and seed snacks. A great choice and thumbs up for a perfect day out!!! The money was definately worth spent every penny. One thing I also want to say, I dont know why some people have commented that this is a rather expensive tour. We payed less on this great private tour, than the tours offered in our hotel and done in big crowds. This would be nothing for us.

We would definately recommend Visit Sian Ka'an tours without any hesitation.

It was the second time I visited Tulum and took a tour with Aldo. We took the bird watching tour at sunset and again what an amazing experience!!! Everything from beginning to end was just perfect and so relaxing! Aldo has so much knowledge to offer about the wildlife and nature. The best was to see all the different varieties of tropical birds flying above us on our stop at the bird island. It was again un unforgettable experience andI highly recommend these tours with Aldo.

We enjoyed the bird watching tour at sunset with Aldo. Aldo loves his "office" and sharing the beauty around him. We explored lagoons and mangroves and ended our tour at a bird island where a variety of tropical birds come to nest for night. It was amazing watching flocks of birds fly into the tree tops of mangrove and fuss for best spots. Aldo pampered us with delicious coffee and yummy treats as we watched the flocks find the sleep spots for night.

It is probably the best sian ka'an tour you can get amongst all companies! Aldo is an outstanding guide in terms of knowledge and friendliness. We had a great and fun day on the canals, incl. Floating. Exciting and interesting.

I highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience with aldo. Try it!
