Great tour with knowledgable guide. Getting there before the crowds is a HUGE plus. It's also not as hot in the early morning. Pickup from our condo was on time. We've already recommended this tour to our friends.
I highly recommend this tour to those who want to enjoy the ruins without the crowds and touristy feel. Freddy, our archeologist and tour guide, was very knowledgable and friendly. His guidance made the tour interesting and entertaining. Our driver was also very good and kept us safe and on time.

My tour was great in part due to Freddy and our driver. Freddy is a true Archeologist Mayan who made the trip worth while. His English is perfect. our tour was with Amigo Tours they picked us up at the hotel on time. I loved Tulum I recommended it. At the end of the tour they drop you off upfront where you can eat buy things take awesome pictures. We loved it.
Freddy was our guide and Saul was our driver, and both did an excellent job. It was tough getting up so early, but well worth it to miss the crowds and heat. Freddy provided great information on the Maya past and present, and his passion for the Mayan people was very evident. The tour was just the right length.The box lunch was very basic (sandwich, fruit, juice box, water and cereal bar), but hit the spot for an early light lunch. Would highly recommend this tour.
Freddie was awesome! Along with Achilles. I recommend this tour to all. Full of info
This is an excellent tour. The early arrival is great for pictures. Freddy the Archeoligist/Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the Mayans and the Tulum ruins. The information and pictures that he shared greatly increased our understanding and appreciation of the Mayan culture and the ruins at Tulum. We learned much, much more from Freddy on this trip then we did on a previous tour to Tulum with another tour company. This tour is well worth the time and money. Highly recommend Freddy and this tour.
Fantastic! Thoroughly recommend this tour as Freddie is so knowledgeable and passionate about his Mayan heritage.
This was a fast and convenient way to see Tulum. Half of the time was a guided tour and the half if your time leaving plenty of time to enjoy the beaching or shopping. Like others said we were back at our resort in time to hit a late lunch buffet. The views were breathtaking. Freddie did a great job leading the tour and proving information about the ruins and Mayan culture. Make sure you confirm your tour by email before leaving home. Internet and phone service may be problematic depending on your resort. My wife and I don’t regret this tour and highly recommend it to others.
This tour is fantastic and definitely worth getting up early. Fredie's knowledge of the site and Mayan culture definitely changed the experience. Instead of just repeating memorized information he sought our questions of the life and history of the Mayan civilization. Saul's attention and service was equally impressive. We practically had the site to ourselves, but as we were leaving is was getting crowded with buses lined up to get in. Our pictures were much better without strangers and crowds. If you want to visit Tulum, I highly recommend this tour.

Best tour we have taken from Cancun! "Freddy" and "Achilles" we're an excellent team! Freddy's passion for the history of the Mayan people was obvious as he also shared with us some personal photos of his family in traditional dress. Very informative and the early access made picture taking of this beautiful sight much better than when the crowds arrived later. Highly Recommend!
The tour was amazing! Our guide, Freddie, was funny and knowledgeable. Going so early was so nice. We got photos of the site-not other tourists. The communication was amazing-we knew where to be when. It was very smooth-well organized-informative-but mostly really fun!
Freddy and Saul are very helpful and give me a perfect tour to Tulum Ruins. Freddy introduced many information about Mayan culture and history. I learnt a lot from this tour. Also, the early access gave us a very wonderful view to take a best pictures of Tulum Ruins.
We very much enjoyed our experience with archaeologist Ursula and driver Saul. Both were very personable. Our tour was only a group of 5 and everyone was running a little bit late that day, but no worries. We still arrived at the site well before other visitors and enjoyed the site with only a few other groups. Ursula presented us with a very good base while in the van (a very comfortable ride by the way) on the way to Tulum and then even more specific information while at the site. Lunch was simple but tasty (ham and cheese sandwich, fruit bar, banana, water and juice) and refreshing. There was plenty of free time at the site to take photos, swim or shop.
Our tour guide (Freddie) with Amigo Tours was the best we've ever had. Very personal, incredibly knowledgable, very funny! I'd definitely recommend Freddie with Amigo Tours!!! Early access to Tulum was huge! We were literally the first people on site and had great photo ops without crowds.
