The tour with Mayans' Explorers is great. Luis the guide did a great job and Diego is a good driver, thank you team for this day! We enjoyed it, great combination of Chichen Itza, cenote, Valladolid and Ek Balan with a nice small international group. We would recommend to change to lunch location. If you look specific for a small... More

Our family had a private "Mayan Experience" tour - Chichen Itza + Cenote + Valladolid + Ek Balam. It was an incredible day and we would highly recommend Mayans Explorers. In booking the trip, Rod was incredibly easy to work with - prompt, responsive, and clear. Our guide was Murux, who was a joy. Murux is from the Chichen Itza... More

We took the Mayan Experience tour and had such a good time. This was a small group tour, and you were picked up separately from different areas so you did not waste time (one bus from Cancun and one from Playa del Carmen which met in the middle). It was really interesting to hear about the sites from an archaeological... More

we took two full day tours with mayan explorers to both Chichen Itzel, Ek Balam, The Cenotes, Coba, and Tulum. They were informative, friendly and just a great bunch of folks to be with. We had a great time, learned a lot of history, intricate details and beat the crowds...It's great going with locals as their knowledge and skills are... More

My family of 4 booked a Coba + Tulum day trip. We had a wonderful day with an early 7 am start from the Riviera Maya area to Coba. We were ahead of the crowds and the heat that come in the later morning (10:30-11). We biked which was a great choice to be able to see more of the... More

Just want to say the excursion was great but our guide, Maresh (sp.) made the trip spectacular. He knows so much about the culture, the ruins, etc. Being of Mayan descent enhances his knowledge. If you go, be sure to go with Maresh. Awesome day!

We took the Mayan Experience (Shared Tour). Our pickup from the hotel was right on time and transfer to the tour van was easy and quick. The tour itself was very good. The itinerary was as described on the website, including Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. All of the stops were worthwhile, and we especially enjoyed the swimming and Ek... More

We had the pleasure of spending our day with the most amazing guide you could ever ask for. Our guide, Morush is an Archeologist and was able to provide us with information that we would not have had access to with other tour companies. He made history fun! His sense of humour and ability to explain things made you learn... More

I highly recommend this company for tours! I only wish we had discovered it earlier in our trip. We recently visited Cancun for 1 week. I did not discover this company until 3 days before we left but was able to book the Mayan Experience shared tour with very short notice ( 24 hours). It was an absolutely wonderful day.... More

Mayan Explorer's provided us a most interesting perspective into the history, lifestyles, and cultural of the native peoples of the Yucatan Peninsula. Our guide was native Mayan, an educated man with a PHD in Archaeology and having an amazing passion for sharing the truth of this land & the native tribes who came to develop all that you will see...
