Best Tour in 43 cruises thanks to Rito and Alandra

Toured the Chochoban ruins - were skeptical at first as this is not a "ship" tour company but needed not to have worried - easy to find - very professional - no waiting whatsoever... read more

This was a great tour, once we found our way out of the port area and were in route to Native Choice offices. Our morning began figuring out how to exit the maze of the port and that was the only problem we had. The map they provided wasn’t very helpful. However, we eventually did find their office and were... More

Toured the Chochoban ruins - were skeptical at first as this is not a "ship" tour company but needed not to have worried - easy to find - very professional - no waiting whatsoever - we were later than the original group - they left ahead and we had our own private tour van to meet up with the others...

We went on our honeymoon . . . the history and cultural experience was very interesting. Erick and Edgar were very knowledgeable and friendly. The food served at lunch were authentic Mayan dishes and cooked over an open fire. The family was friendly and took pride in their preparations for us.

The Native Choice office is super easy to find and everyone is very welcoming. We highly recommend the Chacchoben Ruins and Seven Colors Lagoon combo tour. Our tour of the Mayan ruins was an excursion that we were looking forward to. But my wife and I agree that Kaci our tour guide and Saul our driver made our experience the... More

Our tour of Chochoban was incredible, Abel did a great job of driving (which was around 30 miles each way) and Kaci was the most professional and knowledgeable tour guide I have ever had. She is a local girl whose husband is a pineapple farmer and it is clear that she was proud to show us her home town. We... More

We booked a tour with The Native Choice Tours instead of with the cruise line because it was less expensive and more comprehensive. We toured the ruins and then ate a delicious lunch and spent time at the 7-seas lake (which was my favorite part - so relaxing and uncrowded). There were about 10 of us on the tour and... More

Are you going to Costa Maya, Mexico on your cruise? Did you know that Costa Maya doesn't really exist? It is really called Mahahual, but the cruise lines changed the name for marketing reasons. We learned this and SO much more while touring the Mayan ruins with Kasi and Saul. This tour was excellent! Kasi was so knowledgeable, and taught... More

This tour was more comprehensive than anything Royal Caribbean offered and yet it was at least 33% less in price. So, it;s a no brainer - avoid the cruise ship tours and go local! We did the tour to Chacchoben and the Lagoon of 7 Colours with Edder as our guide and Saul as our driver - the tour, guide... More

We booked this tour based on the reviews and the price and were not disappointed. Our guide "Ed" (sorry, can't spell his full name!) and our driver (Pedro?) were wonderful. It was a warm day and we were offered cold water during the complete tour - not just one bottle. We stopped and tried the pineapple (delicious) before proceeding to... More
