the person doing it frank was so good and had great knowledge and knows his stuff
and the history he knows is good
We left our hotel at 6:50 a.m. and would advise anyone going to Tulum in August to GO EARLY. It is very, very hot even though on the coast and has some ocean breeze. The beach there is small and we could not go down there the day we visited because of high winds. The place itself is beautiful. Words can't describe. Our tour guide was very nice and we enjoyed the information he shared on the history of the place. The coach ride was comfortable. The box lunch wasn't great but in Tulum there are shops and restaurants and you get time to hang out, eat, shop, if you want to. We enjoyed the excursion very much :-. The tour was with Amigo Tours.
Not to be missed. Much closer to Playa del Carmen than some other sites, easy bus ride. This was an early-tour, and it was great to get there before the crowds well worth getting up a little early. Very, very interesting historical and archaeological site. Knowledgeable guide, and yes, he was a trained archaeologists, so was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed his commentary. Was a bit of a walk from the bus to the city, and everyone walked faster than me! Huff and puff. But worth the effort. Absolutely gorgeous views of the Caribbean from the Tulum cliff top. Don't leave your camera behind!! And the ruins ... wow!
Great tour! Frank was wonderful and we really enjoyed the early access. There was less people and temperature was much cooler. Also we were back by 1:30 with the rest of the day to enjoy. The one complaint we had was the driver of the small van picking us up from our resort was 40 minutes late with no phone call. We then met the large tour bus on the side of the freeway.

We LOVED our Tulum visit. Our guide was fantastic and the ruins are almost beyond words. I highly recommend this one! It was a wonderful tour!
This tour was amazing!Our guide, Marco, was excellent - extremely knowlegable and very interesting to listen to. Site is beyond gorgeous! !
Only downside was a bit of a late start, due to other travelers not being ready for pickup-however Carlos still got us there in a timely manor, great driver
van picked us up at hotel and took us to where we transferred to a bus for the trip to Tulum. We were the second group into the ruins and had ample time to sight see before the crowds arrived. By the time we were done at the site there was free time for the provided lunch and for shopping. Guide was great and tour was a great way to see Tulum. Especially enjoyed the early entry time.
Freddie and Ramone were very friendly, they made the early pick up so much easier! Great information about the Tulum sight and loved the Mayan language lessons on the bus ride to the site. Recommend this tour and these staff members for sure.

Nice tour ,learned a lot. Our tour guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor.
I am glad I signed up for this trip.
I'm going to be honest here, having to get up early on vacation is not fun, but it is totally worth it with this tour! Our guide Freddy and driver Leo told us from the start that getting in early will be worth it as you're not dealing with the heat and you will get great pictures since there will be almost no one there yet. They weren't kidding! We had a small group when we went and after we were finished with the tour/free time, you could start to feel the heat and see the amount of people that had shown up.
I highly suggest bringing a bathing suit and a towel and taking a dip in the water to cool off if you stay later, upset I didn't do this myself! Freddy and Leo were awesome with the information they provided and were extremely friendly and personable. If you're going to do Tulum on your visit, do it this way!
