Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. I especially enjoyed Kabah because we essentially had the site entirely to ourselves. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this tour to others.

This was by far my favorite tour out of the three we took! Being able to actually climb the ruins was amazing. There are no crowds at either place so the experience was much better than at Chichen Itza. Plus our guide Samuel was so knowledgeable and friendly!

The sites themselves are truly lovely, really interesting. Our guide, Jorge, was charming and very knowledgeable. We so enjoyed the tour and were lucky to have great fellow travelers as well. Lunch was delicious and interesting.

Our excursion to Uxmal and Kabah was absolutely amazing! The sites themselves were so interesting, and our guide, Manuel, was very knowledgable and explained the Puuc style of architecture, as it differs from the ruins in, for example, Chichen Itza. The sites were pleasantly uncrowded, with limited vendors, and lots of time to take in all the structures and listen to detailed explanation from Manuel, regarding restoration and function. We were impressed with Manuel's knowledge, and his patience, in answering our questions. Lunch was pleasant, and we had a number of extensive travellers amongst us, so it was interesting to hear their plans, and where in Mexico and South America they were travelling too. Our driver, Joaquin, was excellent, and very open to answering questions, and offering advice.

This was an outstanding tour that was made even better by the expertise of our guide, Raoul, who was not content to repeat the same old tired legends about the Mayans but challenged some of the long-held beliefs about these peoples. It was quite refreshing. He demonstrated the fascinating quetzal echo at the Pyramid of the Magician in Uxmal and provided insights into the positioning of the buildings on the administrative quadrangle. On the way to Kabah, we stopped at a hacienda that has been in the same family for several hundred years but is now being worked by Mayan tenant farmers. It was an unexpected bonus stop that added value to the tour. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and climbing at the archaeological sites. The humidity was relatively low the day we took the tour, but I imagine it can be a bear depending upon the season. Though no one is required to do the most arduous climbs, the elevated areas provide the best vistas for photographs, so you'll probably push yourself to find the high places. You'll be more than ready for the nice lunch at a picturesque restaurant just outside the Uxmal archaeological zone.

I'd heard this was a really amazing tour and that was definitely accurate! The ruins were extremely and the guide was interesting, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our lunch was crazy delicious! The guide left us at lunch to go lead another tour and unfortunately I didn't get a chance to tip him. I'll share my great pictures so you'll see a little bit of what I saw--bring a zoom lens if you like to photograph crazy jungle birds. My favorite part was the opportunity to meet other travelers from around the world and hear their interesting stories. It was a great day, a great meal, and everyone felt like a friend by the end of the day.

Amazing tour! Even though we were picked up late it was an hour late it was totally worth it. We were transported in a very comfortable couch with air conditioning. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered everybody's questions. The tour takes the whole day, we finally departed around 10 am after picking up people and came back around 6 pm. Food was delicious.

Pick up on time. Small group. Knowledgeable guide. Fair English. Plenty time to visit the sites by yourselves.

This is a really great tour. Itś a long day but both sites are fun to visit, the guide was good, and the lunch was fantastic. Park entry was included so this was a very good value! Pedro spoke good English and has been doing the job for 30 years so knew his stuff.

I also took the Cuzama Cenotes Adventure Tour but Viator does recognize that I did so I am reviewing that here as well. That tour was not as good mostly because the guide did not speak English and the lunch was not prepared fresh. I might have gone anyway but it would be nice to know before hand that I would not be able to understand anything. We stopped at a small pyramid and church but the descriptions meant nothing to me. Stay away from that tour unless you speak Spanish!
