My husband and I were traveling with our adult children and their friends. Our guide, Adriana, was simply great! We had so much fun. You could really tell the difference between excellent guides who know their "trade" and those who don't. We highly recommend this tour. We had a pleasant short walk to the Coba site and we got early access so it was not so hot and not crowded. Adriana was also very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. Plus, she is a very happy and good person. The restaurant we went to on our break for lunch was really good too. Adriana also took our pictures, which was good. Basically, she is very experienced as she did things even before we even asked coz she was that intuitive. She is also a good listener. All in all, this was such a fun day and we had a little bit of everything. This is one of the best "all inclusive" tours we had participated in. So, even if you only had money or time for only one tour, I'd say that this would be perfect! When we went snorkeling we saw a lot of turtles, which was such a treat. The tour was personal yet professional and that was what was great about it!
Great private tour and fantastic tour guide for the price!! Xtramile tours we will be back for another tour!!

Right from the start this was a great tour from Xtramile Tours! Richard the tour operator called us the day before our tour and gave us explicit details on what our tour day would consist of. Our tour took us from our hotel in Playa Car to the Coba Pyramid, from there we went to a local restaurant for lunch which turned out to be one of the best meals of our week long stay. After lunch and some time to shop we went to a local cenote to swim in the cool crystal clear fresh water in side the cave. For the adventurous there are two dive platforms one at 25 feet and another at 35 feet!! After the Cenote we went to a local honey company to taste (and purchase) some of the best honey I have ever had. Once we left there we went to Tulum where we were taken by boat to view the ruins of Tulum by water which is a totally different perspective than seeing from land which we have done. From there the boat took us out to the reef where we swam with the beautiful turtles and fish of the reef (snorkel equip provided). Aryanna was our tour guide the whole day never leaving our side and from the time she stepped into the van at 6am she was in history mode! My wife and I have done dozens of tours in the Yucatan over our more than 20 visits to the region and Aryanna is by far the most knowledgeable tour guide we have ever had. She took her time explaining in detail all of the ruins and sites we saw on our tour and even climbed to the top of Coba with us (she also walked back down the stairs while texting as the rest of us came down on our butts LOL!). She also had Ricardo our driver stop at a few local places to give us some background and history on the local people, their rituals, and the different foods of the area. Ricardo was right on time to pick us up from our hotel in Playa Car and when we were done he dropped us right back at our hotels front door. Ricardo is a very professional and courteous driver and his van was clean and comfortable with cold AC and seemed to be new! If you are looking for a great private tour company with fantastic professional guides and drivers who are flexible to let you design your private tour then Xtramile Tours is the company for you!! All you need to bring is your bathing suit,towel,camera, and a few dollars for trinkets. Everything else is included. Aryanna even took pics for us at all the locations so we could spend more time exploring, and brought her mothers homemade chocolate cake for dessert! Thank you Sean & Kerry Hegarty
