Pobably excellent
Richard_M, Mar 2019
The morning of the tour I became ill and when the car came to pick us up I sis not think I could go. The car looked very comfortable and the driver/guide was very helpful and offered to stop often but I just didn't feel right about going. I am very sorry that I missed the great Mayan city of Calakmul; it was probably excellent.

The tour started on time in comfortable air conditioned car. Both guides were very skilled and friendly and did their best to make the tour so interesting. The views of the jungle from the top of the pyramids were really amazing. Thank you! Really recommend.
