What people are saying about Mérida

It was my favourite day so far travelling Mexico. Our guide Rodrigo was a fountain of knowledge on this trip. He was attentive, knew so much about chichen Izta, answered all our questions and was just a very sound bloke. I was the only English person amongst a trip of Mexican people and he took the time to relay everything he said to the Mexicans but in English. If you’re thinking ‘I’m not sure’ questioning if it is worth it… it is! The trip is jaw dropping and gorgeous, so so so cool! Thank you Rodrigo! Legend!

We enjoyed a tour with a great guide, all experiences impeccable and well organized.

Incredible tour with a really knowledgeable guide who made the trip a ton of fun!
