We had a very nice tour guide Zeferino who took his time to explain everything and answer questions. The bus was comfortable and had a nice working AC. You should bring enough pesos to purchase items, pay for shuttle to entrance of Tulum (25 pesos) bicycle ride at Cobá (6-9 US)and tip for the tour guide and driver.

"Salta la fila" specchietto per le allodole

We were picked up from the hotel at 7:10 AM, but we waited at the La Isla mall for an hour or so and our trip actually started around 9:00 AM. Transportation was ok. We felt a little rushed at places especially at Tulum and Coba ruins. Definitely recommend renting a bike at Coba. Cenote experience was not the best and the food at buffet was very average. Our bus driver and the guide were awesome. We personally felt that the Playa del carmen stop was unnecessary as we were dropped off at the hotel at around 9 PM.

Tour 4x1 starts at 8 am. First tour 10 am in the archaeological remains of Tulum 1 and a half hours (it's a bit fair to see everything) second cobà, here you have to add 70 pesos per person for bicycle rental so that you have time to go to the main monument. Here it was already 15:15 in the afternoon. At 4:00 p.m. lunch in the restaurant where the cenote is located, the buffet is great (nothing to do with other commercials) 30 minutes to swim in the cenote. At 7:30 p.m. we arrived at Playa del Carmen, and you have one hour to see Fifth Avenue. At 22:00 they left us at the hotel.
