We booked our trip after reading all of the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Maria and Arturo picked us up from our resort and were so friendly and helpful. We had wanted to purchase the photo package, but Maria explained that they were trying out a new camera and we wouldn't be charged - what great customer service. We were still able to get some great pictures of our adventures.
We first went to Tulum and met Jay. He was very gracious and welcoming. We were put right on the trolley to go to the entrance of the site with just a few other tourists. There were probably only 20 other people there while we were, which we found out was not normal. On our return back to the start of where the trolley picked us up, we encountered a line of hundreds and were very thankful to not be in line. The lack of a line was reason enough to book with "Your Private Tour."
Snorkeling through the cenotes was such a cool experience. Maria was very reassuring and calming because going through to the bat cave was a little scary, but only because it's a bat cave! What a cool experience!!
Next, we traveled to Akumal Beach to snorkel with the sea turtles and this was our most favorite part. We encountered 10-11 sea turtles, swimming with them in the wild. A "once in a lifetime" experience. We also saw several rays and beautiful fish.
Following the ocean snorkeling, we snorkeled in the natural aquaurium. Maria was very knowledgeable about the marine and natural resources. This was a very cool place!
Lastly, we had lunch at La Lunita. What a treat, right on the beach. We especially loved the mango margaritas. My husband still can't stop thinking about them!
Maria, Arturo, and Jay were so hospitable and friendly and we can't imagine doing a tour with any other company. They set the bar...and the bar is high. We would absolutely recommend the tour to anyone. Your Private Tour is the best, hands down!
