This was a great trip. The guide knew so many amazing facts about the Maya and the sites we visited. And lunch was a perfect way to end the morning.
As with so many tours the guide makes the experience good or bad. Our guide Gabrial was excellent. The Uxmal ruins are wonder making. And to know there are so many other ruins still uncovered makes this an amazing place to visit. Our guide was knowledgable and always found a shady place to tell us the story of Uxmal. The transportation was a comfortable air conditioned van.a highly recommended tour.
A god tour with an informative guide, learned a lot about Maya culture. Uxmal is slightly different from all other Mayan pyramid sites because of round-edged pyramids and it's a big site. Kabah is not so impressive but a rare Mayan place where you can see sculptures.
Excellent guide, Good bus and délicious food. For us, Uxmal was more beautiful then Chichen Itsa
Sammy was terrific through out this excursion. Taking the early tour was great as Uxmal had very few people but they were soon to follow. There were six in our group and we were picked up from our location and we all agreed what a great job he did. This is not a trip to be missed. We went by the Chocolate Museum and wanted to go. Sammy made clear that if the group agreed he and the driver would spend the extra time to takes us there we would need to pay the entry fee. At the end of the day, there was not agreement on going so Sammy diplomatically explained the policy. I want Viator to be aware how well he handled this. And in no way was any time diminished from the days scheduled events.
The tour was really great! I really enjoyed the whole experience. I am the opposite of a morning person and would still recommend this early morning tour to beat the crowds and heat. The tour guide was super knowledgeable with 20 years of experience, I would highly recommend this tour.

I chose the Early Access Tour to visit the Puuk style Mayan ruins of Uxmal and Kabah for my 67th birthday. More excavations, better facilities and roads made this 8 1/2 hour tour easier than my 1979 visit. For those of you visiting Merida and having to decide between two Mayan UNESCO World Heritage sites Chichen Itza and Uxmal, chose this tour. The early start gets one to Uxmal at opening and your guide buys the tickets while you take a quick break. The facilities are World Class :-!! We also had a quick coffee, snack, facilities break as we left Merida. Our driver Ricardo and guide Vincent of Amigo Tours were excellent. Vincent was a font of information and let the 3 of us snap photos to our hearts content. It was getting really hot, with harsher lighting with big tours arriving as we set off 14 miles for the smaller Kabah ruins. Facilities are simpler here so keep that in mind before leaving Uxmal's lovely loo behind. Ricardo drove safely and got us to each stop right on time in Amigo's lovely 12 pax van.
We had 2 1/2 hours in Uxmal and about 50 minutes at Kabah before retracing our route 16 miles to Lana Naj restaurant.The included lunch was excellent, the restaurant and facilities lovely. I chose the Yucatecan specialties of sopa limon, cochinita pork Pibil, crema Espanola and was gifted an extra dessert of flan with a big birthday candle -! At 3:00 we arrived back to Nomadas Hostal, after an amazing birthday tour ably led y Vincent.
Best tour we did in Mexico. We spent 5 weeks travelling around the country and saw a lot of ruins and had a lot of tour guides, but this tour with amigo tours booked through Viator was the best. It was well organised, the guide really brought the ruins to life with thorough explanations and pictures to help explain what you're looking at. It was a pleasure to spend the day with someone who as so enthusiastic and wanted to share all his knowledge about the Mayans. Great value for what you get as lunch was also delicious and perfect being there early before the big crowds.
Well organized tour company, Amigo's, and an excellent tour guide. Vincento was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout
This is a 'must-do' if you are in Mexico. Our guide and driver were fabulous - pick up was on time and our day was easily the best we had in Mexico. The early start time was fabulous as we were first to arrive at Uxmal - the history lesson was easy to follow and we had many interesting conversations throughout the day. Just fabulous.
