Our guide was knowledgeable and polite. Our driver was exactly on time, polite, and skilled. Getting out of bed early for the early tour was a bit of a challenge but, it was well worth it. We beat the crowds and were back in plenty of time for an afternoon of sunbathing and swimming at the beach.
Freddie and the driver did an excellent job! Thanks folks!
A trip that's well worth doing as it's very different to Chichen Itza. We booked with a local tour operator via Viator. Our guide, Arturio, was very good and made the whole visit well worth while. It needs a early start but it's worth doing if you have the time.
Wonderful tour! The early access to Tulum makes a huge difference in the experience. Our guide was excellent, and our small group made our visit to Tulum in the early AM a trip to remember.
We booked this tour on Viator because last year we booked the early Chincinetta tour with them and were very happy with how professional and knowledgeable their guide was. This year they didn't let us down they were just as knowledgeable and professional as the last year. Viator will never let you down on any of the tours they take you on. This tour was an extremely long day but well worth every minute of it.
AWESOME TOUR! I WAS SO GLAD THAT WE WERE ABLE TO BOOK A TOUR WITH AN ACTUAL ARCHEOLOGIST. HE PROVIDED A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE TO THE RUINS AND MY WIFE AND I WERE VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE TOUR, GETTING IN TO THE PARK EARLY - BEFORE OTHER TOUR BUSES WERE EVEN ON SITE AND THE HOSPITALITY OF OUR GUIDE AND DRIVER. I WOULD TAKE THIS TOUR AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
Had a great time, everything went smoothly, and being early there was very important, would recommend to everyone.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to listen to. Early access was definitely a good idea, it started to get very crowded as we were leaving.
The tour was wonderful. Lot of walking, definitely wear comfortable shoes. Bring water. The tour guides offer bottled water, but it's always good to bring extras.
loved this tour.
not only did we see Tulum and Coba but we went to a real Mayan village and saw how they lived, and then swam and ate at the cenote. this was beautiful! the water was so clean and clear. At the Mayan village there was a shaman who gave us a blessing for eternal good luck.
The start of the tour started off badly, the tour guide seemed to speak quietly and babble on but it was because he had to speak english, french and spanish for everyone on the trip. But once he got to Tulum the guide opened up and told us so much history. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great excursion. Only thing that would have improved it was Tulumin the morning instead of the afternoon.
Our guide Carlos was really friendly and smart, and kept us engaged during the tour. The trip to the cenote is a great break in the day because after walking around in the heat at Tulum, the cool waters of the cenote really help refresh you. But I think my favorite part was climbing the pyramid in Coba because of the views that you will see from the top. Great tour!
This tour was perfect! Carlos, our guide, and Chano, our driver, were excellent and made the whole tour worth it. Carlos is very knowledgeable and was able to provide interesting facts but also keep us all entertained for the long day. He also is completely fluent in English and Spanish. We were a group of 16 people, and everything went smoothly from the pickup in the morning to the drop-off at night. Tulum is gorgeous and you get there right before all the crowds arrive. One really interesting thing is that the cenote visit (which includes lunch) is part of a co-op of families who own it, and part of the proceeds from this tour actually go towards those families and the upkeep of the cenote. Coba is also beautiful, but in a totally different way. Save your energy for climbing the pyramid. It's a long way up, but the view from the top is spectacular. A tip for future customers: it's a long day - there's no getting around that. Make sure to bring a snack for the morning bus ride, and additional water. They did have water on the bus, but it was an extremely hot the day when I went on the tour and extra water is always a good precaution. I'd also recommend a change of clothing, sneakers, flip flops, a towel, bug spray and sunscreen. You can keep things on the bus if needed. Would definitely recommend this tour!
An absolutely wonderful day. Our guide, Carlos Moo, was friendly, knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions. Both ruins were very interesting and very different from each other. The swim in the cenote was refreshing - don't forget to bring a towel. A day well spent - highly recommended.
this was an excellent tour. the day we took the tour, we were the only couple so we had personal attention. our guide was very knowledgeable.
Doing what: Private Tour: Coba and Tulum Ruins from Cancun
This was a very good tour. Tulum is a beautiful place to go and visit Mayan ruins. Xel-Ha offers the best snorkeling spot where you can see tons of fish and don't have to worry about currents. We even had a couple of non-swimmers in our group and they were able to sit on the steps and watch the fish swim around their feet. Definitely recommend this tour!
great tour.. picked up on time as scheduled. Our guide Carlos was quite knowledgable about the sites and made it quiet interesting.
This tour was awesome! We learned so much about Mayan culture with our guide Irving. At both Tulum and Coba we had the guided tour and then were able to explore by ourselves. In between we went to a Mayan village and then swam and ate at the cenote. At the Mayan village there was a shaman who gave us a blessing. I would highly recommend this tour. Note that it was a very long day, almost 12 hours for us, but well worth it.
Very well done. Great guide.
Would definitely recommend the early access tour, you get there way before the crowds and before it gets too hot. Frankie was great, sharing all the history of the site and the Mayan people and walking us through the ruins before letting us off to explore on our own. Whenever you go, make sure to bring a hat, sunblock and insect repellent.
Absolutely brilliant tour - Freddie was a knowledgable and personable guide, and Ramon was a very safe driver. Well worth getting up early to beat the heat and the crowds!
The tour was awesome!!! Loved it we were in group of 6. Freddie the tour archeologists guide was the best showed true knowledge and interest in the ruins and history. Bus driver sylvano also very polite and helped us when we needed to get to restrooms!! Do this tour is worth it!!
Great tour, great tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Our guide Irving was amazing! Tulum and Coba were gorgeous. We got to learn a lot about Mayan culture while walking through the ruins. We were given time to ourselves in both locations so we could explore on our own. In Tulum we were able to go to the beach area and at Coba we climbed Nohuch Mul, the highest pyramid in the area. In between Tulum and Coba, we were taken to a Mayan Village where we got to eat lunch and swim in the Cenote. After how hot it was in Tulum, this was a much needed swim in the cool water to refresh ourselves before Coba. Worth every penny.
This tour was amazing to say the least.. Our guide was Carlos. He was great. I love the fact that he was knowledgeable about both Ruins. Tulum was a very beautiful place to visit. As for Coba, wow.. I loved the fact that we were still able to climb to the top of the tallest pyramid in Yucatan. It was a breath taking view. I would so recommend this tour to any of my friends.
