Tulum 3 in 1 Tour
Donna_S
, Oct 2021
This trip was amazing. Our tour guide, Cesar, was extremely knowledgeable about the Mayans and their culture. He had so much history to offer while visiting the Tulum Ruins. The snorkeling was great. We saw so many fish, several stingrays, and even saw the cutest turtle. The Cenote was my favorite part of the excursion. The water was refreshing. This is an incredible tour you should consider taking. You will not be disappointed.

Our guide Tay was amazing. The flow of the day was perfect. Went from one activity to the next seamlessly. I felt that the travel time to excursion ratio was perfect (we departed from Secrets Maroma Beach). Tulum was awesome, snorkling was amazing (wish we had a little more time there), and the cenote we visited was perfect!!! This was our favorite excursion we did on our honeymoon by far. Thanks to Tay and his team for making it special.

Worth every penny - excellent choice for a quick Tulum Tour

Let me start by apologizing that we were late on pick - we delayed the tour by 15-20 minutes. The pick up from our hotel in Cancun was at 620am Maryna was really nice and patient about it. The van was clean and the tour comes with drinks and snacks which was very nice. The first stop was the ruins we had an amazing guide - I forgot his name but he’s really knowledgeable. The views of the beach/sea from the ruins were amazing. The second stop was the snorkeling which was a relief from the heat of Tulum. All safety precautions were made and Maryna and the captain guided the group to see a lot sting rays and a couple sea turtle. We got some great videos and pictures and they really go close to you but please refrain from touching them. The beach where we rode the bot was amazing. I’m torn between the 2nd or 3rd stop of which was the highlight of the tour. The 3rd stop was the xtun caverns/cenote the inside was amazing the water was quite cold but it was really amazing. The food at the buffet was good too I like the beef dish that they had and the nice hibiscus juice. Overall for what we paid for the tour it was cheap. I wish we can stay a bit longer in the snorkeling part but since it’s only a day trip it’s understandably tight on schedule. Definitely recommend. Maryna was really nice to assist my mom inside the caverns really thankful for her that she enjoyed it even thou she doesn’t know how to swim and needs a lot of help inside. Again thank you very much for the memorable experience.
