based on 68 reviews

This was a fab trip, snorkelling was excellent. It is a long day and lunch isn’t till 3pm. I had read other reviews so had taken snacks. The tour guides were attentive, always topping up drinks, made us feel safe and lots of fun. The downside, from arriving at port to boarding was a 1hr wait. Also I was looking for Red T-shirts on the rep, which they don’t wear on this excursion.

Marco was the best! We had so much fun on the chitchen itza, cenote and tequila tasting tour. The lunch provided was EXCELLENT, and the tequila was so smooth and like nothing I have tasted in the US. Rodrigo was awesome and so knowledgeable about the Mayan culture. They both really made our trip a blast!!!

This was an amazing tour. we got Diana as a tour guide and she was amazing. We made 2 stops to swim, drank some beers along the way, ate a snack, danced away with everyone on the boat. It was really "hype." Thank you for arranging GetYourGuide. Recommended to anyone.

It was great. They helped me keep up with the others by pulling me by a rope when we went to see the last reef. It was fun.

Excellent tours! Rodrigo at chichen itza was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The timing of everything was great!
