My husband, myself and 3 young adult children went on the private archaeological tour to Coba and Tulum Mayan ruins. Everything was perfect and as advertised. Pick up at hotel was seamless. Early Tulum entry was much appreciated, having been there before in the crowds. This was my first time to Coba and it was the highlight of the trip. The Tour guide was very informative and answered all my questions about Mayan and Mexican history/geography. He was a wonderful host and took wonderful pictures of family. Definitely Excellent trip.

We just completed our tour and this is the best way to go to the ruins. Our guide Juan was excellent! His knowledge is wide and he was able to provide us with many insights. He is very articulate and made our time there worthwhile, The added bonus was wonderful vegetarian food in the end.

We had an amazing day with Dulce and Carlos doing this tour! Dulce was very knowledgeable and took wonderful photos at the sites. Tulum was very picturesque and Coba was a great adventure. We had so much fun and learned a lot about the Mayans and these sites. Carlos navigated the roads with expert skill and got us to and from where we needed to go safely. I could not recommend this excursion and this company enough!

Amazing day with Manuel touring Tulum and Coba! He was a wonderful guide and lots of fun to be around. He took some amazing photos of our family and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch together. So glad we took the private tour - very worth it!

We did the Tulum & Coba tour with Arturo and Manuel.
Can not recommend this tour enough. Arturo was great, Very knowledgeable with all things Mayan- culture, history and Mexico in general. I believe that the private tours are beneficial and provide great flexibility and overall a fantastic experience.
Early start for Tulum allow us to beat the morning rush (with hundred of people arrive as we were leaving) Coba was well worth a visit with a lot of history and a climb to the top of the pyramid making this a once in a life time experience. Dinner at a local Mexican restaurant was great and to add to the experience Arturo took photo's of the days tours and e-mailed the through. Manuel stayed with the bus at all times which allow us to leave our belonging on the bus knowing they would be safe at all times.
Great day, Thanks you for a great experience.

We took a private tour to Tulum and Coba with Absolute. Juan, our guide, was awesome! I've been on several tours around the globe and can't imagine a more friendly and engaged tour guide. He was on time and went above and beyond every step of the way. He even stopped to buy my girlfriend a birthday ice cream! The sites were amazing too. We beat the rush at Tulum, nearly had the place to ourselves. Coba was great as well, especially the lunch spot! Unexpectedly, Juan took a ton of pictures throughout the tour for us and sent them over via email a few days later. I highly recommend Absolute Adventure Mexico, especially if you get Juan as your guide!

Juan and Manuel were our guides for this private tour. The tour was booked by the bride and groom for wedding guests who wanted to visit these sites. Juan was very knowledgeable about the Mayan history. Manuel provided the fun entertainment! Both guides were very courteous and on time. They gave us time to tour the ruins before boarding the bus to Coba. Our tour included lunch at a local restaurant known for its conchita ( pulled pork).

Coba tour was a great way to work off the lunch. You can bike or choose a pedicab that will take you to the pyramid. The bike trail is about a mile. If you bike in and later decide you can’t bike back, there are pedicabs available.

Both guides made sure that we were well hydrated and kept giving us water, sodas, beer, flavored waters, Manuel took photos of our group,

You can leave your items in the bus while touring as the bus driver stays with the bus.

Thank you Juan and Manuel for a fun-filled day. If you book this tour, make sure to ask for Juan and Manuel. This tour is well worth the money.

We took the Tulum and Coba tour with Arturo. While researching we weren't sure the extra cost of a private tour would be worth it, but we found out it was and really wasnt much more than some other group tours. Arturo was helpful, attentative, and friendly. He told us about the places we were going to visit, as well as Mexican culture. Some perks of a private tour: Guide all to yourself, not waiting for others in a group, private tour van, private lunch, and getting to Tulum before the rest of Mexico did. Also, Arturo took pictures of us during the day and they were emailed to us the next day. That was awesome! I would highly recommend a private tour with AAM. Thanks you AAM and Arturo!

We went on the Private archaeological tour to Coba and Tulum with Arturo and Ervin. They were both very professional and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our day with our guide Arturo who not only told us about the ruins but a lot about Mexico in general. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn about the ruins.

We were so glad we found this private tour and had a great day with our guide Juan. Pickup and drop off were seamless. Being able to be on a private tour meant we got to both sites before the huge crowds, and we went at our own pace. Juan was able to provide the perfect amount of time, and information at each place based on our needs. He was friendly and very knowledgable. The authentic lunch in the town by Coba was great food we would have never found on our own. An overall 5 star experience.
