The tour guide Jerry was great. The towers were beautiful. Everything was good it was hot but worth it.
Full, well organized day
Christy_M, Apr 2022
The tour was very well organized executed. The van was full, but still comfortable. Alex was a wealth of knowledge about the ancient Mayans and the ruins we were seeing. The cenote was large and lovely. I'd like a little more free time at the ruins, but that's my only recommendation. Fun, interesting day. You'll be tired after!
Great half day tour!
Leslie_H, Dec 2021
We had a great time on this tour. They picked us up at our hotel and we drove straight to Tulum. My mom was using a wheelchair after a recent knee surgery and they were helpful when we got to the entrance to let us use a back entrance so she wouldn’t have to walk as far, in addition to assisting her up the stairs. The private tour guide was great at Tulum and was knowledgeable about the Mayan history. Would definitely recommend.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Dear Leslie_H, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us! We are happy you enjoyed the Half-Day Tulum Mayan Temples Tour and the staff was accommodating with your family. We enjoy sharing part of our culture and roots with everyone and besides the historical part, the people part by treating each one of our visitors how they deserve to be treated. We hope we can be your hosts once again when you come back to Cancun. Warm regards, The Cancun Travel Experience Team
10/10 would definitely book with this tour group again!
Natalie_P, Sept 2021
So much fun! Our tour guide was so nice and responsible. He made sure we were all comfortable at all times and always made sure we were well informed. He answered any questions we had and was with us every step of the way. At the ruins we separated from him to go with a guide from the ruins but he made sure we knew where to find him once exiting the ruins. He was right where we said he would be. The cenote was very remote which ended up being great because it meant it wasn’t as busy as other cenotes. We still encountered other guests but not nearly as many as other cenotes in the area. He even held onto my phone and took pictures. He never left our sight which I found super trustworthy.
Response from Host, Sept 2021

Great tour
brittany_b, July 2021
Many of the tours for this area were all day tours, I went with this tour because it was a half day skip the line tour. I’m very glad I went with the half day tour. It was just enough time to see the area but not too long that I was stuck out in the heat all day.
Response from Host, July 2021
