While this tour is slightly on the expensive side I thought it was really worth it as we had pretty much a private tour and got taken to places away from the massive tourist crowds. Our guide Saed was very informative and allowed us plenty of time at each stop in the trip.
The best trip we did all holiday. We met with an amazing guild to show us round the forest who's farther monitored the monkeys health and numbers so we saw wild monkeys at ease. all the trip was done at a easy pace. we had a fabulous time and the visit to Maguel's house was lovely we had a delicious meal to finish the day
Take this tour!! If you want a day of adventure and activity and education and culture and amazement - I recommend this tour. Our tour guide was Tanya - she was great! Very friendly and welcoming from the moment we stepped into the van. She kept our small group of 6 very informed of our plans and schedule throughout the day. She was very knowledgeable and kind and fun. She provided us with fresh water and fruit and homemade nut/seed bars! We had a delicious homemade Mayan meal in a small village home from a native mayan family. This family is dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of all the native flora and fauna of the Yucatan environment. They have constructed pens/habitats for endangered and injured fauna and care for them until they can be safely returned to their natural land and live in the wild. This family is very passionate about this mission to preserve the land and animals that inhabit it with very little means. Very touching - they exude love and kindness!! Punta Laguna was an adventure also. a pleasant hike through the jungle and we saw spider monkeys and a howler monkey too! We did one zipline run over a lagoon - always exhilarating and canoed for just 10 min or so across the lagoon. If you are looking for a long canoe trip - this is NOT it! We met with a Shaman in the jungle who performed a brief cleansing ceremony prior to our entry into the sacred cenote. The cenote was interesting too. Very cold - be forewarned!! And bats in the cave too. Although we had on harnesses and we were lowered down approx. 20-30 feet into the cenote, we had to climb the rope ladder to get out. A good workout for those of us who like that sort of thing. Not an easy task especially since the ladder is wet a kind of slippery. Not for everyone! But we enjoyed it! All in all a great day! Only downside was Tanya aked for our email addresses so she could send us the pictures she took throughout the day, however, I never received an email from her. : Oh well, we took a lot of our own pictures!
Buy this tour! You will not be disappointed! Our tour guide, Marco, was amazing from the get-go. He was super friendly and spoke perfect english. He offered us delicious homemade energy bars to keep our strength up for the adventure. We saw spider monkeys and crocodiles, had an amazing zip-line ride, a very relaxing cenote experience until some other rude tour group showed up and ruined our peace, a fantastic buffet lunch with vegan and vegetarian options, followed by a great bike tour of the Coba ruins. The tour group was a perfect size 8 of us who immediately bonded! and Marco ran the tour right on time like a well-oiled machine. I would gladly book this tour again, or any tour with Mexico Kan Tours, they are a stellar outfit! Also- be sure to bring pesos with you because these guides deserve tips!
Booked this when we arrived. It has easily been best day of our holiday. Our guide Ty Mai (?) from Mexico Kan Tours was hugely knowledgable and had a real passion for Mayan culture which really enhanced our experience. Swimming in the cenote, zip-lining, cycling and canoeing. Highly recommend.
Journée très dense avec beaucoup d'activités. Une organisation de Mexico Kan Tours vraiment au top.
Un départ matinal exactement à l'heure prévue qui nous a permis de visiter Coba avant l'arrivée de la foule et de grimper la pyramide tout seuls.
Visite d'une famille maya un peu convenue mais un excellent déjeuner, simple mais typique et excellent.
Visite de la réserve juste pour le fun avec la tyrolienne et la ballade en barque. Mais nombreux singes au rendez-vous. Un gros loupé : ce n'est qu'après avoir pris la douche et nous être mis en tenue que le personnel local a avisé notre guide que la visite du cénote ne pouvait vraiment se faire car l'éclairage était en panne. Néanmoins notre guide a immédiatement réagi en organisant la visite d'un autre cénote.
Le gros plus : une guide multilingue, Angela Rojas, vraiment super !!! Elle ne se contente pas de réciter tous les poncifs habituels sur les Mayas mais présente avec beaucoup de talent ce que l'on sait sur eux, surtout ce que l'on ne sait pas et les hypothèses que l'on peut faire sur leur histoire, leur civilisation... Sympathique petite documentation à bord du minibus pour illustrer ses présentations. Bravo !
