This was a real treat. First off, this was one of only a couple tours that get you through the ruins before the big crowds arrive. And I mean BIG crowds. We were able to take lots of pictures without anyone in front of the ruins but after 10am, forget it. It is wall-to-wall people. We were finished by 11am and hundreds were flowing in when we were leaving and this is relatively a small site. Our guide was Frank and he did an awesome of job talking about the Mayan people on the bus to the ruins my kids loved listening to him. He was very informative and knew where to go for the best views and pictures. We will be going back to Mexico again in the next few months and we will be requesting Frank for our trip to Chichen Itza early access of course!

This was an excellent tour. Freddie was a great tour leader and gave us wonderful insight to the history of Tulum. If you plan on going to Tulum, ask for Freddie. You won't be disappointed...

I loved the early access and the information and diagrams that our guide reviewed with us on the bus ride down from Cancun. This tour allowed for more time at the ruins and some free time to wander back around as you like, and take it all in. Our guide was very knowledgeable about these ruins and also others so she could compare and contrast, which was helpful if you plan to visit some other sites. Highly recommended!

Ursula our tour guide was wonderful So very knowledgeable ! Going early was the best We beat the crowds and the heat so we had optimum viewing time and no crowds to spoil pictures Ramon the driver was very good as well When I went to the Museum of the Maya the next day it was so relatable as Ursula had been so detailed in her information both from the archeological and anthropological perspectives Loved it

Definitely worth the trip from Cancun! The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. The day was beautiful and because we arrived early, we were on the grounds with great access for photos before the large tour buses arrived. Our group was 11 people and the van that took us was comfortable and new. Very reasonable for what you get. The lunch was average but didnt go for that!

It was wonderful getting in to the ruins before all the crowds! Our guide/archeologist, Freddy and his driver (whose name I forget), were super. Freddy gave us an extremely informative description of Tulum. The box lunch wasn't exactly five star, but I didn't expect much in that regard, anyway!

Our guide Ursula was great, friendly and very knowledgeable. She was always open to answer questions. Totally recommend the early access to avoid crowds and heat. The buses could be more comfortable though

The tour is well worth taking. Early access to Tulum avoids large crowds and heat and is worth getting up early. The group was small and travel was comfortable in a new and air conditioned van. Our driver-- Saul-- provided safe and smooth transit. Ursula, our guide was excellent. Ursula was very knowledgeable and additionally shared helpful charts and pictures to explain the significance of Tulum and to provide general background about the Mayans . Ursula and Saul were a good team. We would be delighted to take another tour with this team and company.

This was an excellent tour and Frank, our guide, was great. I would highly recommend it. It is a real plus to get there early -- before the crowds. The pickup is early, though. It would be great if you could provide a bottle of juice and a breakfast pastry (or even coffee, although I don't know how you would arrange that logistically) because it is too early to get breakfast at most hotels before the tour.
