What people are saying about Tulum

An amazing day out, we thoroughly enjoyed it

Eugenio was an exceptional guide, he welcomed everyone in the group and introduced us all to the others in the group which broke the ice and we felt we really got to know everyone. The day was relaxed, no wasted time but not rushed either. First went to swim with the turtles via a short boat trip, saw two turtles and loads of colourful fish in the reef followed by a cruise past the Tulum Mayan ruins, then lunch on the go to 4 cenotes, swimming in a couple of them. We bought the photos at the end, Eugenio was using a GoPro camera throughout which we eventually received the photos 12 days later after repeated requests, not sure what the delay was but some great photos and videos (via drop box). Thoroughly recommend this trip.

Very nice was fun

Picked up punctually from the hotel but only at the lecture at 3pm. Otherwise everything went well. Unfortunately we had a lot of disturbances so the snorkeling required a lot of strength and concentration. The cenotes were very interesting and great for swimming and snorkeling. Something completely different. However, it is a victim of mosquitos that there are plenty of long shirts and pants. Driver and Collin were very good and very friendly. Unfortunately I only saw 1 turtle but better than none. As for the reef, please do not expect anything special, especially if you have been to Egypt or the Maldives, etc. Otherwise highly recommended.

a day to remember

Excellent lived experience. Everything was adjusted to the schedule, without hurries or time constraints. Ernesto, the guide was a true host. He made us spend a morning full of activities that we will never forget. In the van everything was clean and perfectly organized.

You have to have done it

Everything fit from front to back and worked perfectly. Planning, collection, the tour itself and the transfer back. Super guide. Simply great.


Very fun and you learn a lot from the reef and marine life!
