Wow - just wow! This tour was amazing. Chichen Itza was incredible, the cenote was beautiful, and the food was delicious.

Rafael had true compassion with sharing the history of the Mayan culture. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this culture from your standpoint. We absolutely enjoyed everything. Definitely a tour we will never forget! Score: Recommend: YES from Maui, Hawaii
Our tour guides were fantastic. Truly connected with both of them. During the Chichen Itza, we split up into two groups. Rafael explained everything so easy and was my spiritual guru. Will forever remember them! Score: Recommend: YES from Charlotte NC
Johnny was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and fun. I was so scared to do the repelling, but everyone was so encouraging. I definitely would love to go again. The only thing I would advice to bring a lite snack for breakfast and don't forget a towel. The email sent from Cancun tours was a little misleading about what was offered. You do get a locker at the cenote to store belongings which was really nice and the lunch at the cenote was incredible. The excursion was one of my favorite memories from my trip. Score: Recommend: YES from Virginia, US
