We spent one day with Lemuel touring Tulum and the surrounding area. We had a great time. Our day with Lemuel was by far our favorite day of our vacation. We wish we had booked another day with him. He has very informative, helpful and great with our kids.

I can't imagine visiting Chichen Itza with any other type of tour. Lemuel provided detailed insight into many of the spectacular features of these ruins. He did not rush us through, and often took us to nice shady areas as we discussed various symbols, patterns, and scriptures. He also made sure we left with many wonderful pictures.

We have travelled with Lemuel Petlacalco now twice to ruins in Mexico. He is one of the most knowledgeable individuals I know. Depending upon how deep you want him to discuss the Book of Mormon he has all levels of discussion. He has taken us to Tulum, Ek Balam, Chitzin Itza and snorkeling. He's amazing, he and all his brothers... More

Lemuel picked my wife and I from our Hotel, literally going the extra mile because we were pretty far away from the other visitors who were on the same tour. As soon as Lemuel pulled up, I could tell it was going to be great just seeing his smile! Cheesy I know but it put all of our doubts and... More

My husband, another couple, and myself had a wonderful experience with Mormon Encounter. Lemuel Petlacalco was our tour guide and he brought his sweet daughter along. We felt he went the extra mile by providing a ton of water to drink, a great lunch at a local restaurant, and boogie boards to use while floating in a cenote. This tour... More

Lemuel Petlacalco was recommended to us by a neighbor. He picked us up from our resort at Playa Del Carmen at 8:00 am sharp. He was awesome. We read scriptures from his I-pad in the van on our way to Coba. His insight and knowledge of the Book of Mormon and local ruins was wonderful. We rode bicycles through the... More

The highlight of our week at Cancun with sightseeing and tourist attractions was the tour of Coba and Tulum! Lemuel Petlacalco Lehman was an amazing find. His knowledge of the ruins and gospel of Jesus Christ tied a perfect knot to our testimony of the Book of Mormon. We just had a tender mercy in finding him to guide our... More

Carlos kept us entertained as well as being a wealth of knowledge and information! Even though we have studied these ruins in other ways Carlos added insights we had never seen. His information and love for the ruins transformed our trip from good to amazing!

If you are planning a trip to Cancun, it would not be complete without a personal tour to the ancient Mayan ruins. I was recommended to look into Helamantours@yahoo.com I am so glad I took this route. Our personal tour guide, Carlos Aleman Ortiz picked us up at 7:30. Carlos was so knowledgeable on archeology and the Mayan civilization. He... More

There is nothing I can add to the many reviews already posted. I agree with all of them. We are hoping to go back and do one of Carlos' 5 day tours to see more ruins. I had to come home and order a couple of books to learn more of what he shared with us. It was very hot... More
