5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Highly enjoyed my one week in the Yucatan, especially after putting up with 3 months of one of the coldest and snowiest winters in a long time in Boston. My guide, Victor Gonzales was very knowledgeable about the sites that we saw and very attentive to my requests . He seemed to exhibit a real sense of pride in his part of the world and this made the experience all the more enjoyable. Having had an interest in the Mayan civilization for many years, I was very impressed with all the Mayan sites that we visited and learned a great deal on the tour. Besides the ruins we visited beautiful colonial towns, colorful market places, an incredible cave (Lol Tun) and saw some exotic animals on the boat ride on Rio Lagartos.
The two hotels I stayed in were both beautiful and well situated for visiting Chichen Itza and Uxmal. My only real complaint is that Internet and WiFi access was spotty at best.
We modified the itinerary a little and spent the last night in Chichen Itza instead of Uxmal and in retrospect this made a lot more sense since my guide told me that the ride from Uxmal to the Cancun airport would have been close to 4 hours and this would have been much too long on my last day of vacation.
Overall, a fantastic tour that I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

This was an absolutely fascinating tour with emphasis on Mayan culture and sites, however, without leaving other aspects like the colonial towns of Mérida and Campeche, or the natural reserve at Rio Lagartos. Our guide was well informed, spoke Mayan himself and could tell us a lot about the history of his people.
