Even though we had to leave our hotel at 5:30 am, I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to avoid the hot sun and the crowds of people. We had a fabulous tour guide named Frank. He is actually a Mayan descendant and had so much to add to the explanation of the customs and life of the Mayans. When we arrived, we were the only bus and 2 hours later when we left, there were tons of people. It is a great, informative tour. The view of the ocean is incredible. Would do it again!!
We really enjoyed this trip! Our guide Freddy was fabulous and taught us so much. The kids, who are 11 and 12, both really enjoyed it as well. Tulum is a beautiful place, but it is even more beautiful when you make the effort to get there before the crowds! So worth it!!
This trip was well worth it! Our guide Freddie was awesome. We had to get up at 4 but missed all the crowds.
Early access was so nice...no crowds, no heat...Freddy was an excellent guide.
You should choose this tour for tulum because it gets really hot in the afternoon. So you better arrive at tulum in the morning. Although I had to wake up at 4am, it was worthwhile. My guide was very informative and gave very good explanation. He was very fluent bilingual, and that was very helpful. On the way back to cancun, you can ask them to drop you off at the highway for another attraction because tulum is the farthest attraction from cancun. They dropped me off at Xcaret without any extra charge.
The trip there and back was wonderful, and the information given very interesting. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent tour. The Archeologist guide presented great information in a very easy to understand manner. Even included some humor which always makes it more enjoyable. Great getting in ahead of the crowds and heat of the day, although it was still hot. I recommend this tour if you want to see the beautiful ruins and learn history of this ancient civilization without using an entire day of your vacation.
My boyfriend and I are so glad we took this tour. Getting up early was so worth beating the insane crowds. The education we received about the ruins and Mayan culture from Frank was amazing....
Our tour was very enjoyable and informative! Our guide was an archaeologist named Ursula. She was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in both English and Spanish. We were picked up promptly at 6:00 a.m. by our driver, Jacinto. The early start time was perfect to beat the high temperatures. We would highly recommend this tour, and both Ursula and Jacinto.
Is my favorite place in Mexico. Here you got the rare opportunity to see how a Mayan city was structured and sometimes you got the feeling that they are still there... waiting to fix the roof or so...
I learn interesting things from the guides really well prepared.
A fantastic trip. The early access was a great choice as we were able to get great shots of all the major sites long before it was over-run. Freddy was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable and helped to make sense of the historical significance of the various buildings. The beach access was not advisable this year due to the bad seaweed problem, but frankly, there is so much to see and do at Tulum, we did not miss it at all. By the time we left, just before noon, the place was crawling with hundreds of tourists and locals alike. Do yourself a favor and book the early access tour.
