My guidebook said that the Dzibanche ruins were the best in the area so we booked the tour with Native Choice, based on the TrapAdvisor recommendations. Our cruise ship (Norwegian Sun) did not offer this tour. The office is about a 15 minute walk from the pier. The directions we received were easy to follow. We were promptly checked in for the tour and each given a bottle of cold water. Since everyone showed up on time we departed promptly at 8:30. There were six of us (3 couples) in a roomy, newish Mercedes van, along with the drive (Pedro), our guide (Erick) and a helper. It's a long drive to the ruins but Erick did an excellent job of telling us about the Mayan culture and other things about the local area. Pedro was a good driver and we felt very safe with him. Once we reached the ruins Erick provided a comprehensive tour. We were the only ones there! After the tour, we were provided sandwiches, chips and drinks. We were dropped off at the entrance to the port about 45 minutes prior to the ship's departure. An excellent tour!
