It was great! The number one reason we liked it was because of MINA she is the greatest tour guide ever, so lovely and made ya laugh the whole trip. The place and everything was good but MINA was the best, if you go, ask to go with MINA or her nickname (mi amor). The chofer Ricardo also was great

Esther and Carlos were amazing tour guides. Very good bilingual tour. Early tour but it allowed us to arrive to Tulum before the crowds. Same went for the cenote and Mayan town visit. Had the entire place to ourselves. Lots of activities packed into a very fulfilling and exciting day.

Our guide Cesar explained everything to us really well. Both about the daily routine and about the history of the Mayas. Food and drink were also provided. The cenote is really a dream! Not overwhelmed and very very nice. Truly a special day all in all. Thanks for that !

The guide Edwin ,Alan and Almondo, the driver, was excellent. Alan was very witty and funny guide. It would have been nice to stay at Tulum and Coba a little longer to explore more. I would totally recommend this tour.

Very well organized tour by EKINOX TOURS with excellent guide Carlos Moo.
