We did a private tour for seven of us with Alberto as our guide. The day was perfect! Alberto was pleasant and very knowledgeable. He made sure we were all happy and comfortable. Ek Balam was impressive and the cenote we swam in was delightful with a very good lunch. Score: Recommended: YES from Houston, Texas
Miriam was an AMAZING guide. She taught us so much about Ek Balam and was able to easily answer all our questions. We felt safe in her care the entire time and truly appreciate the level of service she provided. Score: Recommended: YES from New Freedom, PA
Our tour guide interpreter Jesus was outstanding! A history lesson we learned about the Mayan culture and architectural designs was fantastic! From the moment we left our hotel the lesson started. And our driver we had was safety first and no problems getting us to and from our destinations in our private suv. I thank both of you for a job well done! Score: Recommended: YES from Lakewood, WA
