I booked both the Coba & Tulum Private tour and the Mayan Experience Private tour. Everything about the experience was awesome. Between the two tours we saw 4 Mayan sites, 2 Cenotes, the city of Valladolid, and had two extremely tasty local meals. I highly recommend booking both tours if you have two full days and want to get a... More

We had an ambitious desire to see Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum in one day and they made it happen! I would suggest you request Luis as your guide if he is available. He really has a passion for the history and architecture. Excellent, fun day with this company!

Very knowledgeable guides. Spent three days on private tours with Mayans Explorers. Even though was a bit of a drive to a couple of sites they kept us entertained. Do not even think about taking an "bulk" tour? These guys are the best. Lunch, water and all passes are included

We requested a customized tour of three sites of the Mayan Ruins and the tour was exactly what we had requested. Louis was our guide and he was 5 star. He was very knowledgeable about both the history and the architecture of all of the sites. He had books to explain the history & restoration of the sites. We got... More

We have been traveling to mexico for 18 yrs. and these guys are the best. Private tours for the cost of big bus tours, made to order, great guides, drivers, and the flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile. Will be using their services again and so should you! Thanks, guys.

Believe all the EXCELLENT reviews of this trip! Murux is the ultimate guide, having grown up in Chichen Itza amongst archaeologists from all over the world. He speaks at least five languages and is a scholar of Mayan culture. His knowledge and enthusiasm are contagious. There were five of us in a nice van. Alessandra was an excellent driver, dropping...
