Our tour guide Roberto was highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout. We never once felt pressured to tip or take part in anything we didn't want to. This was the perfect excursion and soooooo much better than being herded around like cattle as part of a group from the cruise ship. Make sure you try the pineapple dipped in chili pepper bought from a local vendor - most amazing pineapple I have ever tasted!
Great tour even with small children!
We enjoyed our cruise stop at Costa Maya, a port built to encourage business in south Yucatan. The port makes you go through a maze of vendors...then we found our tour guide. Roberto was very knowledgeable about Mayan history, Pepe was a safe and careful driver. The Toyota van was new and had AC. We stopped at a butterfly farm, rustic and nice. The Chacchoben ruins were wonderful, some climbed with permission. We were lucky to have a nice breeze, and no mosquitos. On our way back to the port, we were treated to some fresh pineapple slices from a roadside vendor-delicious! The van cooler was stocked with water and cold beverages...all in all. a very nice tour experience.
This tour is the best of all shore excursions we had on our cruise and the only we booked via Viator.
The rest of the tours are through the cruise company.
Juan Carlos is highly knowledgeable and went above and beyond his duty to make our tour fun and enjoyable.
This was an excellent tour. The guide was interested in photography and knew all the best places to get photos. He was very knowledgeable and patient. We saw the ruins and the town. Well satisfied and a good value
We had a group of six and we all enjoyed the excursion. Guide very knowledgeable. Would recommend
Wonderful excursion. Roberto, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the Mayan culture, the ruins, and the geographic area. He was very personable and is a fantastic guide. He pointed out numerous details during his talk. He explained the gum tree, the start of the gum industry and we had a sample of organic, natural gum.He pointed out the tree within a tree growth, an how the inner tree will eventually die. We learned about the Mayan culture, details about the ruins and the geographic area. It was a small mini van bus tour which is ideal because of the small number of guests. On the way back to the ship was sampled fresh pineapple purchased from the side of the road.
Beautiful ruins. The small group tour lead by Roberto was excellent. His expertise on the ruins, the geographic and historical area was great. He explained the history of chewing gum, with details about the tree and provided samples of organic natural chewing gum. He pointed out a unique tree within a tree which is frequent within the forest. He pointed out identification marks on various ruins and explained details about the ruins. We sampled fresh pineapple on the drive back to the port. It was a great day learning about the Mayan ruins and culture.
An amazing tour. Well below the ships cost for their same excursion. Very easy to find the meeting point, if you read the follow on e-mail, seems others who had trouble finding the meeting point can read. The butter fly stop was an added bonus, amazing creatures. The stop on the way back for fresh pineapple courteous of the guide was relent. Do not be afraid to use AlterNet shore excursions off your ship.
