It start. Off not good, because we were in the bus, part on the side of the road waiting for another bus, with our tour.
Nekeisha_D, Apr 2024
I definitely recommend this this excursion nut would love to have more time to shop, and the tour guide knows a lot about his history.
donna_c, Apr 2024
Everything! The bus driver & the 2 host were awesome/humble/ kind….it was a life time memory for me… I loved it!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
A whole day trip, well worth every second!
Andrea_M, Apr 2024
I recommend this excursion for those who love nature and want to explore different parts of Mexican and it’s rich culture! My tour guide was Peche and he was very nice and made us feel comfortable at all times. The food was really good and I say that as a picky eater. My favorite part had to be swimming with the catfish en el Cenote. This excursion is very long and requires a lot of walking but nonetheless, sn unforgettable experience! Highly recommend.
Fun and action packed!
Harold_B, Apr 2024
Fun and action packed! Food was just okay but it was a buffet. Pick up was a few minutes late and that got me worried a little because I thought the bus was going to be there already.
It must do tour while in Cancun!
Timothy_A, Mar 2024
Our guide was excellent! It was a long day, but we saw and experience f so much. It was totally worth it! Experienced a shaman bless us. It was really wondrous! Tulum, wow, what a beautiful archaeological site to see and experience!
Imani_S, Feb 2024
Nice trip didn’t give enough time for playa de Carmen only gave us 40 minutes after the other activities was for 1:30 minutes. There was no water included you have to buy drinks. We don’t get our drinks that was suppose to be included which was water
Great guides bad Viator people
Oscar_D, Feb 2024
The tour itself was nice but a bit hurrying. Great guides, however the people at Viator and Cancún Bay Tours were very negative. Unaccomodating, unhelpful, uncreative, as well as inflexible. They lack problem solving skills. WILL NOT USE AGAIN 👎👎👎
The meeting point...
Ming_Z, Feb 2024
The meeting point instructions were not clear. The pick up time and real departure time is an hour apart ( meeting time 7:45 and departure time is 8:45). The guide is not that knowledgeable and talk too little about the sites to visit. Lunch is not good and cenote is too crowded.
Most Wonderful time ever
Monica_B, Jan 2024
This was an incredible experience that we will do again. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
eddie_b, Jan 2024
My favorite part of this tour was EVERYTHING because of Pablo!!! He made all things accommodating and extremely educational. He is passionate about his culture, the Mayans!
James_H, Nov 2023
I must say that they did a top notch job during this booking. I has so much fun and learned a bunch.
Cancun in. November
Lisa_R, Nov 2023
Loved the Tulum Coba ruins! and the Mayan village cenote and the shaman Had an amazing guide. Be prepared for the long day though 2 hour drive to Tulum from Cancun… worth the money
Andrea_M, Oct 2023
I wanna start with how nervous I was when I booked this because of the bad reviews I read. I booked this with the pick-up option and I was not disappointed. The pick-up was on time and very nice, he made sure he looked for the guests at the lobby and checked their tickets. He drove us to the meeting area, the check in was in a store for souvineers and IT IS MUCH CHEAPER THERE THAN MARKET 28, trust me on this. I wish I hadn't been hesitant on buying souvineers there and I wish I had the time to go back here. Anyway, we checked in and paid the taxes that were needed and we went back to the front to meet our guide. PABLO, with a bright smile called my name and the other guests. Told us we had 10 minutes and to use the bathroom before we get on the bus. He went around calling for the other guests too. Waited to make sure everyone was on the bus. When we started our journey, he gave us the itinerary and lots of details and history. He would also come in and tell us detail and snippets of facts minutes before we arrive at the different stops. Him and his yellow binder of pictures are the best part- i love to learn about cultures so every chance he had to share facts and history was my favourite. Taking pictures of the scenery was the second. He has mayan ancestry and his love for his own culture shows. PABLO, IS THE BEST TOUR GUIDE I'VE EVER COME ACROSS. A SMILE ON HIS FACE WHEN HE COMES IN THE ROOM AND HE AND HENRY THE DRIVER DID WHAT THEY COULD TO ACCOMODATE US AND OTHER GUESTS NEEDS. There are drinks and sodas and beer on board, just ask. If you take the plus option you get a box lunch. And if you or somebody needs to use the washroom, they'll find a place to stop. Also, Pablo warns you about the tourist traps and lets you know that to use the washrooms, you have a fee to pay. HENRY was lovely making sure we had cold drinks and cups, he also has umbrellas for you if you ask and he'll help you up and down the bus when needed. (I had a toddler and a baby). Henry pays attention too, i bought ice cream for my toddler and he saw that it was melting, he gave us a cup for it. HENRY AND PABLO ARE A WONDERFUL TEAM. The 1st stop was tulum, not a lot of shade from the sun but it was windy when we went. He talked about the buildings and the uses and the carvings and how important the city was. The views are as amazing as the stories he talked about. I say we had enough free time to explore and take pictures for all the stops. 2nd stop was Coba, we saw the many temples and decided to rent bikes and trikes instead of walking since tulum was really hot and tiring for us. Pablo, waited at every temple for everyone in the group to talk about it and the significance. This one felt rushed but I mean we were on bicycles and it was very shady seeing as it was in the jungle. So it was a nice calm little retreat in the beautiful jungle despite the rush. Our 3rd stop was the cenote which had the lunch buffet. We had a nice Mayan welcome from the elder and they had beautiful handmade souvineers. Lunch was mayan dishes and wood-burned cooked the way mayans did, according to Pablo. they were warm and good and had a familiar taste to us. After that, we jumped in the (underground) cenote after washing up and it was the most refreshing part. The water was cool and the limestone around it made for a good picture. We had such a good time, we almost forgot we had 1 last stop. Playa del Carmen was mostly the market for us. They had a big collection and my family only stayed where we were dropped off. We didn't want to get lost and get left behind. Plus we had already went to buy souvineers the day before. But its prices in playa del carmen seemed fair and much better than Market 28 in Cancun.
4x1 day fun trip
Nancy_H, Sep 2023
The day was packed with full of activities. Our tour guide was awesome, told us a bunch of back histories about each activity we did. He was attentive, gave us plenty of times to spend at each activity. We were on time to all events. Would definitely come back to them next time.
Amazing experience overall
Brandon_C, Apr 2021
Perfectly planned, had a great experience. Tour guy and driver are great people and make your experience more fun 🤩
Great people and places make up for the headache, mostly.
Matthew_C, Aug 2019
I wrestled with giving 3 vs 4 stars but rated 4 because the value for the price is good, but there were some major annoyances (some unavoidable) packed into an otherwise fun day. Mainly, spending a LOT of time on different buses (first the hotel pickup, then spent an hour at the transfer center which felt like it was in a sketchy area, where we were given a pushy sales pitch for the drink package which I'll explain below. When we finally got assigned to our next van, we sat in sweltering heat with barely any A/C for awhile before our 2 hour trip to Tulum started. It wasn't so bad when we were moving, but as soon as we'd stopped in traffic it would start to get unbearably hot. I didn't feel well by the time we made our next stop, where we were given a bathroom break and transferred to another bus - this one was a nicer Mercedes Benz van, but was still pretty hot. We did stay on this one for the rest of the trip, thank goodness. Overall, we're glad we had the experience, we loved our tour operator Raymundo who was extremely nice, funny, and knowledgeable and fluent in Spanish and English, and we were delivered to and from our hotel safely which is all we could really ask for such a low price. Tulum was beautiful but very crowded, which is not their fault, but in the end we may have done better to do the Tulum half day because it was incredibly rushed compared to the overall time of the tour (about 13 hours from pickup to drop off)- by the time we'd been set off for free time, gone up to the ruins overlooking the ocean, & fought through the crowds for pictures, we were running late. We would have liked more time in Tulum but of course, that's the nature of a big tour group and we did enjoy Coba and the cenote as well. The cenote was very refreshing and not crowded - and it was fun to go on the all-terrain vehicle that took you from the lunch location down to the cenote. Coba was pretty awesome to rent a bicycle and ride through the ruins to the one you can climb, very neat and my favorite part of the day because it was cooler ¬ rushed. I wish there had been a tour option without PDC at the end- it was just a boring shopping complex with a beach subpar to the one at our resort. On the drink package - don't do it! They tried to scare and confuse us by saying we'd be so thirsty all day and end up buying 5 $5 drinks pp, which somehow would be pricier than their $30 pp package? We each had a big water bottle and only bought 2 extra drinks each at ~$2
La vans tenía un aire...
GabrielaALEJANDRA_C, Apr 2024
La vans tenía un aire acondicionado deficiente al principio, hacía mucho calor. Además que sentimos que todo fue corriendo, sí, se quiere conocer de la historia de los lugares, pero la explicación se toma gran parte del tiempo de la actividad y luego, el tiempo libre se ve afectado y no se puede apreciar muy bien la arquitectura. Así fue en todos los lugares, así como en Playa del Carmen, siento que 40 minutos en muy poco ya que debes contar con el tiempo de caminata desde la vans hacia la misma. No esperábamos tan cortos lapsos de tiempos en las actividades del tour.
Würden wir nicht nochmal buchen
Caroline_H, Apr 2024
Der Guide hatte einen komischen Humor aber versuchte Fakten zu teilen. Leider war der Bus kaputt und wir fuhren einen Großteil der Strecke ohne Klimaanlage - das ist leider ein no go bei +30 Grad Außentemperatur! Wir waren total aufgeheizt und uns kam Tulúm/ Coba kalt vor im Vergleich zu den Plätzen im Bus…
Abholung hat super...
Irmgard_L, Jan 2024
Abholung hat super geklappt. nur das angebotene Frühstückspaket wurde nicht ausgegeben. Der Reiseleiter hat nicht deutlich gesagt, um wieviel Uhr wir wieder beim Bus sein müssen. Ansonsten schöner Ausflug!
Tolum e Coba são fantásticos.
Gustavo_D, Oct 2023
O guia Pablo é muito simpático e sabe bastante da região, Tolum e Coba são fantástico, o almoço maia e o cenote são bem legais, playa del carmen desnecessário mas bom para quebrar a volta. Poderia tirar playa del carmen e aumentar o tempo em tolum e Coba.
