Wow, what a fantastic experience! Our tour guide was Elena and Habner was our driver. Elena was wonderful and gave us a great tour. While you are kayaking, she will go at the speed and intensity you are comfortable with, and you can make the kayaking excursion as long or short as you desire. The ride to the Lagoon is... More

Had a great trip. Our guide, Edder, and driver, Alejandro, were great. Edder was informative, friendly, charming. Gave us lots of information during the 50 minute drive to the ruins. Then, during a 90-minute tour, we learned a lot about the Mayans and their cities all over the Yucatan Peninsula. Had plenty of time, also, for exploring, walking, and taking... More

We took this tour January 2017 and saved a bunch of money using The Native Choice instead of booking an excursion to Chacchoben through the cruise line. Their office is a short 4 or 5 block walk from the port and the vehicles they used all looked fairly new. Our guide, Eric, was so informative. His family is actually from... More

Hugo was the smartest tour guide brought to us from the Mayan heaven. If you can get him to be your guide you will be rewarded with an appreciation of the Mayan civilization. We had a small group and a small van.

Our driver Rito and tour guide Joel provided an excellent experience. I would highly recommend the Mayan Experience tour. The Ruins were nice, but s typical tourist attraction, however the experience of going to a real Mayan village and having a family prepare lunch for us in their home was a real treat and a true cultural experience. Don't do... More

We had great time, with a small group of only 10 people and our tour guide Erick was of Maya decent. We got a good look at Chacchoben without the crowd, then had a relaxing time on a private strip of beach on a lagoon. Gorgeous and away from the crowds.

I agree with most others. There is a "short walk" about 10 minutes to their building with easy directions. For those who dont want to walk there are plenty of cabs. t is well organized. You go to the ruins in a van of about 10 people with a driver and guide. Trip to ruins is about 1 hr and... More

We walked about 10 minutes to the clean and tidy Native Choice office. Staff immediately offered us water and welcomed us in. Edder our tour guide and Alejandro our driver helped us into the clean, large, air-conditioned van along with about 10 other people. A small tour group, which gave us the chance for a lot of conversation with the... More

I was the tour leader for a group of 27. Simply put... ONE OF THE BEST COMPANIES TO WORK WITH AND THE PRODUCT WAS FANTASTIC!!! Our guides (Diego and Alondra) kept it interesting during our drive. The ruins were up close and personal. We elected to do the "Extreme" Tour... this added a wonderful lunch and a relaxing couple of... More

We arrived in Costa Maya and chose a simple tour to the Mayan ruins. I found this tour on the Trip Advisor site and was not disappointed. The tour company was about a five minute cab ride from the terminal where our ship was docked. The check in was easy and they offered us a cold bottle of water to... More
