The cave was AMAZING and the tour guide (Rafael) was amazing and he had a depth of knowledge! He took well care of his whole group. The transport driver was great and punctual.

The tour has been well described online and it lived up to expectations. The formations were fascinating and the water was fun. There were so many pots and bones.

The tour was well guided, the path theough the cave is awesome and adventurous. Pickup and dropoff is included and so is lunch.

Hands down one of the best tours you can find. ATM is rated one of the top sacred places in the world.

Renan was great and the tour was spectacular. It’s a must!!
