This was a great excursion. We were picked up on time from our hotel,Riu Cancun and it was just us so we had the minibus to ourselves. Our guide was very polite and pleasant and did not talk too much which I liked. Tulum is a beautiful setting and well worth a visit. We explored by ourselves and there are pleanty of information boards at each building explaining the history of the Mayas and the functions of the buildings.We then went on to the cenote swim which was very refreshing and masks and snorkels were provided. If you can, I definitely think you should include a cenote swim if you are visiting the Yucatan. Lunch was a full hot meal and I chose the fish tacos which were excellent. The resturant also served a drink can't remember the name that contained coconut milk, carnation and cinnamon. It was delicious! We then headed back to Cancun and arrived at our hotel at about 3.45 pm so still time to enjoy the restof the day.
We were picked up on time. Our group was small (6 adults, 1 child). Leon was very nice (although quiet). We were able to explore Tulum at our own pace. Leon stayed with us at Dos Ojos Cenote and was very patient with those of us that were slower. Lunch was a real meal at Dos Ojos. Highly recommend!
Great day. Leon is a great tour guide. Easy day trip with kids. Lasts about 6.5 hours.
Leon is the best! I loved being on the tour with him. You weren't dragged around in sweltering heat listening to useless information, but rather you got to choose where you went, how fast you went, and what you did. Please give Leon amazing praise.
amazing... we were just 3 people in total, and the guide was very knowledgeable.
We did the Tulum and Cenote tour with our family, two adults and two kids, and got a private tour since no one else was signed up for that day. Our driver and guide was Leon and he was very nice, courteous and professional. We toured Tulum by ourselves while Leon waited outside. Tulum was great, but not as exciting as Chichen Itza was which we did two years ago also a Viator tour. The Cenotes snorkeling was cool. Also a great spot, not too many other people there, so it felt less touristy. After Tulum and cenotes, Leon took us to a local restaurant for a lunch. Delicious food! Not a brown bag lunch which was given on the Chichen Itza -tour. Definitely worth the money.
This tour was absolutely amazing! Since it turned out to be just the 4 of us, it was like a personal family tour. Our driver/guide, Leon, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and was more than happy to answer all our many questions. Of course, the ruins were breathtaking and something everyone should see at least once in their life. The cenote was beautiful, unique, and quite peaceful. The lunch they served afterwards at a small restaurant on the cenote property was one of the best meals we had all week. The trip is a 'must do' for the price. Thanks again Leon!!!
Great day tour from Cancun. Tulum is wonderful, the Cenote was beautiful and the food for lunch was fresh and delicious. Our guide / driver Leon was wonderful too.
Had a great trip to Tulum beautiful weather, saw the sights and took pictures. Count on walking a couple of miles, up and down the area. The Dos Ojos Cenote was the best part. Beautiful spot to swim, see fish, see a little bit of a cave and even jump off a ledge into the clear water. Bring you camera highly recommend. The guide was SUPER friendly and helpful. Only downside is a bumpy ride on the side roads to the Cenote.
This is a great tour. It combines a self-guided tour of Tulum and swimming at the Dos Ojos cenote. Our guide Leon was very engaging and was extremely flexible. It was raining almost the entire day and it was pouring heavily when we reached Tulum. Leon was very patient and suggested we go to the cenote first - in the hope that it will clear up later for Tulum.
PROS: Very small, intimate group. We were only four people in our group - this allowed for flexibility in timing. Lunch is included at the Dos Ojos cenote I enjoyed the chicken fajitas. Snorkeling equipment is included as well. Leon did not rush us and allowed us as much time as we'd like in Dos Ojos. When we reached Tulum, it had cleared up. Leon took us to the entrance and told us to take our sweet time and did not impose a time restriction. Great guy!
CONS: It was raining very hard for the past few days so the water level at Dos Ojos was very high. Leon said the level was 2 meters higher than normal. The runoff from the rains made the cenote a bit murky in certain areas. Leon took us to multiple parts of Dos Ojos to find the best location - the water was clean and clear although Leon said that during dry days, the water was even more gorgeous. One thing that might be helpful to have: waterproof flashlights to carry when snorkeling.
This was a great tour, mainly due to the efforts of Leon, our tour guide. He was incredibly accommodating, making sure we got the most of our day.
We started with a tour of the ruins at Tulum. One note - Leon purchased our tickets, but did not accompany us into the park. We enjoyed being able to explore on our own, but wanted everyone to be aware that the tour of the park was not guided. We had plenty of time to see the entire park and the beach. It was a highlight of our vacation.
Next we went for a swim at a cenote. It was very refreshing after a sunny hot morning at the ruins. The caves were amazing, and Leon allowed us plenty of time to swim and explore. After swimming, we had lunch at a restaurant very close to the cenote. We had several options for food and beverage, and the food was very good.
On the ride back, Leon even made an unscheduled stop in Playa Del Carmen to we walked the shopping district and ferry port. All in all, it was a great day!
Great day trip! I chose this excursion for me and my husband in large part because we wanted something shorter than the Chichen Itza trips that were available, and I wanted something that was a little less touristy. I have also always wanted to snorkel in a cenote! We were with one other family for the day. We spent about an hour at Tulum, which, with the heat, was plenty. The other family was running late, so we went and got some paletas at some shops near the ruins. We also really appreciated that Leon, the guide, did not try to encourage us to buy anything and actually told us the prices there were way too high. We then went snorkeling, which was the highlight of our trip. We were given the choice of snorkeling in an open or closed cenote, and we chose the open one. Then we ate lunch at the restaurant in Dos Ojos before heading back. We got back to our hotel around 4:30 and were picked up at 8:20 that morning.
We had a wonderful guide for our tour. The cenote was definitely the highlight of our trip. It was refreshing to jump in during such warm humid weather. And it's a beautiful wonder to experience in Riviera Maya/Tulum area! A must see!
Our group was super small! just us three and a couple. Our guide Leon was more than amazing and tried to please both families to visit the Cenote we wanted. He gave us our time to swim, visit the archeological site and have dinner at ease. No rush and no pushing into buying anything. Would recommend him 100! Thank you!!
Leon our guide was promptly there to pick us up at our hotel. We had a wonderful time as he explained about where we were going and some history behind Tulum. We swam at the Cenote in the amazing water and was truly an wonderful experience. Our lunch stop was even more impressive with a large choice of entrees that were unbelievably delicious! A very nice day from beginning to end!
Our guide Santos was so hard working and friendly! The tour was just the right amount of time at Chichen Itza and the nearby cenote. There was no swimming at the cenote which was fine because it would be annoying to all swim as a large group. The lunch in Valladolid was delicious! I didn't realize the bus that picked us up from the hotel was just taking us to the tour group transfer center where we had to find our correct bus for various tours. It would be more convenient and we wouldn't have to get up as early if the bus just picked up its tour participants and got on our way. Other than that, it was a great tour and worth the money!
The tour was really great. My wife and I had a great time exploring Tulum and snorkelling in the Cenote. The views were breathtaking. Our guide was very nice and super helpful throughout the whole experience, he even offered to take pictures for us. He allowed us to wait in the shade while he waited in a long line to buy our tickets for Tulum. He gave us the freedom to explore Tulum at our own pace and even encouraged us to go and visit the beach there. After that, we visited a cenote that was only a 10 minute drive away. As opposed to Tulum the cenote was a more intimate experience, when we arrived there was only two other people there. Once again our guide bought our tickets and we could change into our bathing suits. This was the perfect time to jump into the refreshing crystal clear and beautiful water. Once again he allowed us to take our time and explore the cenote as we pleased. After this we had the best Mexican food that we had during our whole trip. We recommend you bring water and snacks as the ride from Cancun to Tulum is quite long.
