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!

Joshua was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and very patient with us, giving us ample time to take as many photos as we wanted. At no point did we ever feel rushed. We went on a somewhat rainy day, and whenever we had to stand under a branch etc to stay dry, Joshua was able to fill our heads with much interesting information. The sites are even more breathtaking than the photos. The stormy day made for some stunning photos. At the end of the day, Joshua asked if we wanted to see the Chocó Story Museum, and we did. This was also fascinating, and you should not pass up the opportunity. Because it was a cooler day, my husband and I ordered a hot chocolate from the barista, and it was very delicious and also very different from the sample you try later. It was a fantastic way to spend a day.

This tour was the highlight of our trip so far! We were picked up on time and were in a very comfortable van for our small group of 7 people. Our guide was very knowledgable about the area and ruins while also allowing us to roam and take as many pictures as we wanted. The company is Mayan Heritage if you want to go through them personally, I will in the future.
We spent a good amount of time in Uxmal exploring all the areas, it is so beautiful and not too many tourists. We were driven to a restaurant where we got to see how pibil is cooked and taken out of the ground. We ate cochinita pibil and had chaya juice with lunch - very delicious. We received a full 3 course meal as the included lunch. Soup, entree, and dessert of your choice. After that we went to Kabah which is much smaller but still as amazing. It felt like we were the only ones there because not too many people go to Kabah.
My husband said it was the best day ever, he has loved Mayan history for so long that this was perfect.
HIGHLY recommend.

We so enjoyed this tour when we visited Mérida recently. Gabriele was an excellent guide, sharing everything in Spanish and English, and making it interesting while also answering questions and leaving us time to explore a bit on our own. He even pointed out the best spots to take photos in.

Pick up was at a local hotel and a bit late, but traffic can make it tough to get around the city quickly we experienced that on our own before this tour and they were very responsive when we called to be sure we hadnt missed them. We had a really nice lunch stop dont let the mobile home park fool you - that restaurant was very good! and were still back in town at a reasonable time.

These places are amazing and highly recommend making time to see them in person.
