Best Memories for a Trip
Rocky
, Nov 2020
One of the best things I hae ever done for myself traveing was to take "this" tour! I did not want the day to end!!!! Santi was our guide ....gave me the one of the best memories for a day :) I consider myself well traveled and I usually avoid tours and do pretty good. But, on a shorter stay in Tulum I needed to get around and see things along with getting history. I also like supporting eco-friendly groups. These people are amazing-fun, well versed in the surroundings and history. Also the small groups made me feel as if I was with friends not on a tour. I ended up doing 2 tours with them and wish I had more time I would have done a 3rd. I surprised myself for a non tour person:)

Nico was great, informative, and guided us throughout the tour in Muyil ruins and Sian Ka'an lagoon. But the best part of the tour was the included vegetarian burrito and brownie.

I have traveled the world and and I usually avoid Tours. Sometimes you have to take them to see the best things. I have to say this is one of the best tours of my over 35 years of traveling. Santi knowledge and kind manner is amazing. Plus booking this tour you are supporting local environmentally safe practices and people. I recommend the tour above all others.The price is worth it and all levels! You will love getting in the water it’s magical dash the whole area is magical!

Great combination of archaeology, cultural explanation, and nature experience. Luigi was a wonderful guide for our family. He had substantial knowledge and was attentive to members of our group that needed a little extra help. Well done and a very enjoyable excursion.

Our guide, Marie, was terrific: knowledgeable, fun, and helpful. Wife walks with cane and requires a little extra time, and Marie made this excursion doable for her. We learned so much and saw really amazing sights. Floating in the canal was heavenly! Delicious lunch and snacks were grown and prepared locally. We love that this company is so eco-friendly.

Our family group of 7 was joined by another couple to make 9 people over 3 generations on this tour. Our guide, Andrea, was very knowledgeable and did a great job of giving us a lot of information about the ruins at Muyil in an interesting way that held the attention of the children as well (ages 7 and 10). The walk through the biosphere was interesting and just the right length. The walk to the top of the look-out was worth it and afforded a view of the lagoons. We stopped for a delicious picnic lunch of empanadas, rice and salad before getting in the boats to cross the lagoons. The float down the canal was a blast and enjoyed by all. It was relaxing and quiet - except for the squeals of delight! I had read a previous review that recommended taking water shoes for the walk back. We did that but also noticed that the boat operators delivered everyone's shoes to the exit spot for the walk back. This tour was very well organized and it was nice to give back to the local community. Our guide and driver were very good. We particularly appreciated the small group experience. Be aware that it did last longer than anticipated, but was so interesting that the time went quickly.

Mix of culture and environment

This was an amazing mix of culture and environment. Our guide, Luigi, gave a overview of the Mayan architecture at the ruins and their role in the society at the time. But the best part was seeing the biosphere and floating through one of the canals on a hot day.

The tour company offer a more expensive experience that goes to the sian Kaan earlier and we were told that the best time to see more wild life. The ruins are great any time and our guild was very informative. on retrospect i would have paid more and gone to the other side as the floating river is nice but a little boring as no wildlife here all the manatee's are on the sea side, Also quit a walk back after. my advise is to see Muyil earlier in the morning and book for the seaside of Sian Kaan, however over all our guild and driver made the trip fun and interesting.
