3-in-1 Discovery Combo Tour: Tulum Ruins, Reef Snorkeling Plus Cenote and Caves
Wonderful 3-in-1 day trip
, Feb 2020
The tour was great and this had a lot to do with our guide Sylvana. She did a superb job in arranging and helping us navigate through everything. Taking 12 people through cenote swimming and snorkeling when half of the people were not quite ready for these activities seemed an impossible task but it would almost appear like a cake walk for Sylvana. She took care of individual needs and had clear instructions for everyone to ensure they made the most of the experience. She was passionate about promoting the understanding of the local culture and nature which made things enjoyable.
What a great experience! Would highly recommend this tour. We had a fabulous day out, the cenote was the highlight of the trip! Enough time spent in each location, great snack and standard buffet lunch.

All inclusive Chichen Itza, Valladolid with Cenote Swim & Mexican Buffet
Overall good tour
, Feb 2020
Overall the tour was good, organised and planned well. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Would Highly recommend bringing water bottles and a hat when touring Chichen Itza, very hot standing in the sun for hours.
The only issue was, I had selected the option for hotel pickup, but last minute it was changed to a meeting point pick up and I wasn't even notified. Thus, we had to arrange for a taxi last minute to get us to the meeting point.
Journey to Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula to visit the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza on this full-day excursion that includes easy hotel pickup and drop-off. Along with seeing El Castillo and learning how this pre-Columbian city played an important role in the Mayan civilization, visit the colonial town of Valladolid, stop at a cenote for a quick swim, and enjoy a buffet lunch.
Pickup was on time. It’s a large group so you travel on a bus. Driver was good felt safe the whole ride. Esther the host did a great job. It’s a long day but totally worth it! Had a tour of the ruins then a hour to explore. Nice amount of time at the cenote. Then little bit of time to out Valladolid the church there was cool. The order and amount of time for the activities is perfect highly recommend.
This full-day tour from Cancun packs a sightseeing punch—see Valladolid, a 16th-century colonial city, visit the ancient Maya civilization of Chichen Itza, a UNESCO Site, and have a chance to participate in an ancient Mayan purification ritual of Temazcal guided by a real shaman. In the archaeological zone, admire the Kukulkan pyramid and the Temple of Warriors. A guide explains the cultural importance of the landmarks you stroll past. Spend leisurely time relaxing in the peaceful cenote of Ik-Kil. With round-trip hotel transport, this is a hassle-free experience you don’t want to miss.
Beautiful trip. See all these features in 1 day, be prepared it's long but absolutely awesome. I was disappointed not knowing ahead of time that we had to pay 40 pesos per life jacket in order to be able to swim in the Cenote. Also, the optional bike ride fee of 140 pesos (for 2 ppl return trip) to the bottom of Coba would have been nice to know ahead of time. My party was okay as we had enough money but another family didn't carry anything and weren't able to partake.
The Tulum, Coba was great, didn’t get in the cenote and we didn’t get to do the playa del Carmen. They told us they would take us to playa del Carmen but we would have to get our own taxi back to our hotel because it was to far for them to take us back. So we had them just take us back to our hotel. Also food they severed us was just ok.
Visit two of the most important Maya archaeological sites on this full-day tour: Coba and Tulum. Admire the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea while exploring the temples and pyramids of Tulum with a certified guide, then head to Coba to climb to the top of Nohoch Muul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. In the afternoon, take a swim in a 'cenote' (underground cave), sit down for a traditional Mexican lunch, and explore the city of Playa del Carmen. Round-trip transport is included.
The experience was spectacular for me and my family. It was our first time to be in a tour with a guide. Ana Lilia or Layla is an excellent tour guide. We will always recommend her expertise in guiding tourist to Chichen Itza, she did an excellent job leading our tour. A special mention for Alex too, our driver who drove us safely to Yucatan and back to Cancun. It was an enjoyable tour and experience. My family (my husband and our daughter) will always recommended Viator and Amigos tour to anyone who wants to see Chichen Itza.
Frank was an amazing tour guide, making our time there extra special. So much history and beauty! I learned a lot, soaked up the sun and beauty, and left feeling inspired. Thanks to Frank and Alfredo (our driver), we had a magical time. Loved it!!!

Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote & Valladolid All-Inclusive Tour
Juan is the greatest
, Feb 2020
Our guide Juan was fantastic. He taught us so much about his Mayan culture. He was hilarious made us all laugh while at the same time teaching us about the areas we visited. I would take this tour 100 more times as long as he would be the guide. Best tour best time of our lives thank you
Norma was a lovely, lovely tour guide. We were able to book last minute and everything was so timely and efficient. The bus was comfortable, which is great because you spend a lot of time on it- it’s a LONG day so be prepared for that! We brought snacks which I was grateful for because lunch is not vegetarian friendly and not very good either. Other reviews talk about feeling pressured to make purchases and while there are vendors everywhere and always an opportunity to buy trinkets or food, just realize people are just trying to make a living and you can buy or not, it’s not a big deal. But overall it was an excellent day, Norma and Manuel were fabulous hosts and they deserve all of your tips at the end of the day.
The Yucatan Peninsula offers visitors a treasure trove of history, from the pre-Columbian archeological sites of the Maya civilization, to 16th century towns settled by the Spanish. Experience this history firsthand with a full-day tour from Cancun or the Riviera Maya. See the ancient Maya site Chichen Itza (admission not included) the pyramid of Kukulcan, and explore the architecture in Valladolid. After a busy day exploring, refresh yourself in the waters of the Ik Kil cenote, and enjoy a delicious buffet meal.
I was expecting more. There was a long pick up at hotels, I think we stood almost 2hours on the bus. When we came at Tulum Ruins we had a good explanation but only 30minutes to go to beach. It wasn’t good. We were in hurry. After this, we went to a beautiful BUT very little cenote. Cobá its Ok. Our tour guide Pastor was nice.
This was by far the most economical way to see a few sights. The workers were nice, but a little disorganized. I over heard one of the men say it’s just because we’re in Mexico. So having a patient attitude your good. However one tip for when you go to Tulum and Coba. Just do your own research. The tour guides are so long winded and after we found out they gave some untruths. So do your own Wikipedia and enjoy your self guided tour. We are appreciative for the tour but just a tip for you.
Swap the beach for a fix of culture and history on this tour to the Tulum and Coba archaeological zones. Explore clifftop Maya ruins, climb the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan Peninsula, and swim in a jungle cenote. Opt to rent a bike or hire a bicitaxi and ride between the pyramids.
The Chichen Itza trip was long but fantastic. We were picked up from our hotel right on time, and from that moment on our guide, Carlos, made the day fun, informative and easy. Since our group was multilingual, he easily switched back and forth between English and Spanish, teaching us about Mayan culture and history. Diving and swimming in the cenotes was refreshing after walking through the ruins, and grabbing some photos and a quick dessert in Valladolid was a great way to end the day. The only thing I didn't love was the cooking demonstration and mini tour of the small town before lunch. By that point, we were pretty hot and hungry, and just getting inside for A/C and lunch would have been preferable. Overall, though, this was a great trip and well worth it.
First of all, we loved our guide, Jorge. He made the entire trip really fun. The way there, we learned a lot about Mayan culture and the temple and sites we were going to visit. I will say, though, the Mayan village we stopped at felt a little harassing, because they really really want you to buy stuff. But overall, it was pleasant. We also had an English guide for Chichen Itza itself that was nice.
Explore spectacular Chichen Itza on this full-day tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our guides were magnificent and very knowledgeable. They made the time in the bus fun! However, it was a VERY long day...with our hotel pickup at 7:00 am and return at 9:30pm!!! Had to stop at a “xfer station” for logistics and breakfast so by the time we actually got on the road for the excursions it was almost 9:45. The Cenote and lunch were fun and Chichen Itza interesting, but honestly, I enjoyed Tulum and Coba more if you can only do one. If you are going to do this, bring a book, swimsuit and towel. The guides were also very generous w the liquor on the ride home— that helped ;)
One of the best tours ever. Wat made it so good were all the tour guides, especially Victor who educated us on Mayan culture. Plus drinks were flowing openly the whole time. The enthusiasm of the guides was just amazing. Highly recommended. The temples and cenote were absolutely fabulous. There was an amazing performance from the Mayan people in the cenote as well . Over all once of the best tours experiences
It was a very long day for sure! But our hosts made it a great fun day! Victor started out with his amazing knowledge about the Mayan culture! The drive pretty long, did not appear that long because of his fun facts! We went to a cenote that was beautiful . We had lunch and than went on to chichen Itza. Unfortunately we were only a little over 2 1/2 hours in Chichen Itza. I wished we could have stayed there a little longer. Gerry did a a great job explaining and informing us. We had to be back at 5 pm .
There were two couples who came back 20 mins late. We were in the process of leaving when they showed up! no fun!! We left for Valladolid to see the Spanish architecture and old church . Very nice, but i rather would have stayed 1 hour longer in Chichen Itza. On our way back our hosts came around with drinks! So much fun. You guys did a great job to entertain us. Thanks for a great day. We loved it

Priority Access: Xcaret Park Day Trip with Transportation
, Nov 2019
our tour guy Juan Pablo was very informative they arrived on time for the pick up. On the bus they explained everything in detail to us, we were amazed how everything was so organized, easy to display around everything has numbers so you cant get lost. The buffet was amazing go to Laguna Buffet you will enjoy it believe me. We took the bus way back earlier and we have no problems getting back into our hotel. Me and my husband had a great experience, will come back with family and friends.
This tour company is very well organized. Everyone was brought to the same place and then separated into tours from there so everyone on our bus was going to Xcaret. Once there, our guide was so helpful to get everyone organized. There is much to see and do once at Xcaret and the night show was fantastic. I would pay the extra money to get the plus adventure so you can have a locker. This is a full day tour, we did not get back to our hotel until 11:00 pm.

Excursion Las Coloradas from Cancun & Playa del Carmen
, Nov 2019
Tour was excellent, food was very delicious and specially the guide Simon Chavez was very courteous and helpful. Pink lake, boat tour and crocodile farm visit were memorable expeirences. I highly recommend this trip as it's absolutely worth the price. Cheapest deal best trip in Mexico
Las coloradas has definitly been one of the most underrate attractions in the Yucatan Peninsula but the glamorous flamingos and ancient creatures found ashore say otherwise.
Want an adventure to brag about back home, this captivating Pink lake made by natural causes is with out a doubt the perfect activity to particapate in. Las Coloradas has definitly been one of the most underrate attractions in the Yucatan Peninsula. Your certified guide will elaberate the magical proccess of its formation.
My family had an awesome time sailing on the Paradise! Even those who had never sailed before. Pickup was prompt, and all of the service was friendly and clean. The boat was nice and all of the staff wanted to make sure you were having a good time. Snorkeling was fun but definitely only for strong swimmers, as the current is strong. We saw the underwater museum which was neat. Then we stopped for lunch in a secluded beach club, which had something for everyone, even the picky eaters. We had time to relax in a pool and go to the beach. Then the boat took off for Playa Norte. We had 2 hours on the island which was plenty of time to rent a golf cart. Everyone had a lovely day.
The crew was amazing and the Island was beautiful. Snorkeling wasn’t that impressive but it was just a pit stop to the Island. The buffet lunch was ok but the beach it was on was unimpressive. Once you get to town you can visit the nicer beaches and do some shopping, but 2 hours wasn’t enough time.
Spend the day soaking up the sparkling Caribbean on this catamaran cruise to Isla Mujeres from Cancun. Feel the gentle breeze as you sip drinks from an open bar. Hop into the water to snorkel at a reef location teeming with vibrantly hued fish. Dock at a private beach club for a delicious buffet lunch and even more down time. Upon arrival at Isla Mujeres, enjoy free time to explore and shop. For added convenience, upgrade to include hotel transport from Cancun to the departing marina.
let me just start off by saying that the tour guides Greg, pepe and raoul are lovely. absolute salt of the earth kind of people. I didnt have any cash so was not able to tip so I'm sorry for that.
Now for my review, pick up was at 7a, I was the first, we drove around for 90mins picking up other people and pair that with the traffic, my first 3 hours were spent on the bus so I did not care for that. We had about 2 hours at the ruins. Greg gave us a wealth of info in about 20 min and then we were on our own. I would have much preferred a guided tour headset as it would have been more thorough and in depth. I alked around the place by myself but wasnt even sure what I was looking at.
i dont feel there is much I could tell you about the Mayan people. The trip back was also over 2 hours. So an 8 hour day with no food or snacks provided. I give this trip a meh.
We really liked this tour. Pepe (our guide) was very knowledgeable. Pickup times were efficient and on time. Also, we had been touring all week and were kind of tired (!), so this half-day tour was just the right amount. There is an hour and 15 minutes with Pepe (guided tour with lots of info), then an extra 2 hours of free time (plenty), time for lunch and shopping for local crafts, etc. We were picked up at 7:40 in Playa del Carmen and were back to our hotel by 2:00 pm! Tulum is absolutely gorgeous and is a "must see" for anyone in the area.!

Chichen Itza, Cenote Ik Kil and Coba Ruins from Cancun
, Jan 2020
We only had a couple days and this tour was perfect to see as much as you can in one day. It did feel a bit rushed, but we knew that going into it (3 stops in one day?!). Tour guide and driver were both wonderful. Transportation was nice, clean, and air conditioned.

Great way to explore the surrounding areas of Cancun.
, Dec 2019
The tour was excellent. We learned an incredible about of information about the Mayan culture. The Tulum and Coba areas were beautiful. The Cenote was refreshing and the lunch good. There is some traveling involved at least from Cancun area. One thing I wish I had done was to read up some on the Mayan's before the trip so I could have better absorbed all the info presented by our guide. Either way it was a great tour.
We had a great time taking the Viator tour to Tulum and Coba. The tour was advertised for 12 hours in duration but it took only 9 hours, which is OK by us. The tour guide Luis was very friendly, knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic. He gave great narratives of the ruins and the Mayan culture. Lunch was at a local Mayan restaurant by the cenote. The cenote was beautiful, and the water was so clear. The restaurant was not fancy but food was tasty and staff was friendly - a good fit with the ambiance. Pick up at our hotel was right on schedule. I did have some problem with how the pick up time was communicated. Two days before the tour, I called Viator and the representative gave me an incorrect time for pickup. I also received an email from the local tour operator who gave me the correct time (a difference of an hour). I had to contact the local tour operator again to confirm. It was rather frustrating. Other than that, I wish we could spend a bit more time in Coba, since it is such a large cite. But overall, it was a very enjoyable tour.
In general the tour was good. Our driver was great. Our guide was just Ok. I have traveled to many places and taken many tours, however, this is the first time that I see a tour guide leave behind part of his group and walk in front with just the fast walkers...
Travelers to the Yucatan Peninsula typically favor lounging on the beach, but with the rich Maya history in the region, savvy travelers should prioritize a visit to the ancient ruins. On this daylong adventure, explore the standout Maya ruins in Tulum and Coba, climb an ancient pyramid, and learn about Maya culture from your guide. To round out your tour, take a dip in a traditional swimming hole, known as a cenote, and recharge with an included buffet lunch.
Yes, it was worth the early morning! The heat is great by the pool or beach but out there it gets irritable, so early access is the way to go. Our guide was Frank, and wow he was knowledgable!! We heard other guides say things like "well there are many interpretations so we dont really know for sure" when Frank would tell us the meaning of something. Granted everything is skeptical given that you are talking about so long ago in time but hearing a meaning is way better than "not sure". He gave us a good hour to sleep on the bus and everyone fell silent which was nice since it was so early. Then he gave us the info we needed to enter the grounds. However- and hopefully they fix this because of the review, so my intention is not to deter people from taking the tour- the bathroom in the bus..leaked.. so the smell was not pleasant. The tour itself was great, and some of the pics we got literally have no extra people in them. Pretty sweet!

We had a great time! It was exactly what we were hoping for. We were picked up when we were supposed to be, we had a great guide who gave us a lot of good info, (but didn’t go on and on, so we had time to explore) and our driver was awesome! We lucked out and had nice weather for all of the activities as well. I would definitely recommend going on this tour! Thanks!
We loved this trip! Our guide, Mario was funny and gave us a lot of information of every place we visited.
The only "problem" was that we didn't have enough time at Chichen Itza, as the place is huge (you would need a couple more hours for that).

Our family of 4 (two kids age 9 and 12) enjoyed our excursion to Tulum and Cenote Dos Ojos where we went snorkeling. Our guide Victor Manuel was friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the ruins. Our driver (I think his name was Juan Carlos) picked us up promptly at 7 am as directed and we returned back to Cancun around 5 pm. We highly recommend taking the tour for a nice mix of history and swimming in a ceynote.
I had such a great time this week with this tour! The hotel pickup service was prompt and we had such an awesome group. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about literally everything! I learned about the Ruins, the best souvenir market in Cancun, stories about the cenotes, new music artists...everything! The view over the cliff of the Tulum Ruins was absolutely breathtaking. But the best part was visiting the Dos Ojos cenote. Careful with ordering the food though at the cenote- it took so long for our food to arrive that it ate into our swimming time. Would be best to grab something on the way out. Great value, I highly recommend!
Quite a good experience, only thing being that bus was late in picking me up
, Feb 2020
I'm giving this 4.5 stars. The only reason why I'm not giving it quite 5 stars is because the bus picking me up at my hotel was 15-20 minutes late. Otherwise, such a terrific trip, and with the number of fellow visitors (15+) that made it pretty intimate!
Visit two of the biggest draws in the Yucatan on this tour to the Tulum Archaeological Site and Dos Ojos cenote from Cancun.
