Volker picked us up from our hotel exactly on time, 5:30 am. Seemed early, but he knew that by getting to the ruins early we would beat the heat and the crowds. All day long we were one step ahead of the large tour buses. Volker told us stories about what we would see and he was full of interesting... More

Whenever and wherever my husband and I travel, we always hire tour guides so we gain the full experience and history of the area(s) we are visiting. This time was no different except that I booked my tour on-line based on reviews I had read instead of getting referrals from people I know. I was very nervous hoping I had... More

I really enjoyed doing the Mexico Lindo tour. Volker was very informative. The highlight for me was visiting the widow and the orphans. We brought some groceries and some stuff from the States for them and they really enjoyed our gifts. I would love to visit them again.

We've visited Mexico several times, but never saw it like this. We were able to visit a working jungle camp and a small town where we got to see how the people really live. It was a really rare and authentic experience that we wouldn't have been able to get without Volker's intimate knowledge of the area. We brought home... More

I could go on and on and on about how absolutely PERFECt this tour was! We were a group of 4 girls (hey, thats what Volker called us, so I'm going with it, even if we are all 40! lol) in town for a long weekend celebrating one of our 40th Bdays. We had plenty of fun stuff on our... More

I can highly recommend a private tour with Volker's. He knows the area extremely well and has highest respect for the natural enviornment, the Mayan people and their culture. He picked us up at 7:00 am and dropped us back @ 5:00 pm (after an added trip to a local market to help us get the best price on a... More

This is my third tour with Volker and they never get old (or redundant)! Volker's love for the Riviera Maya and his deep knowledge and respect of the Mayan culture sparkles through every tour creating a momentary sense for a tourist of being a part of something really special. I look forward to future visits to the area and to... More

I cant recommend Volkers tours more - informative, customized, casual, informal, non touristy - just really perfect for anyone looking to understand this area more.

My wife and I went to Playa for our honeymoon last week, and wanted a day to see the area and check out the sights. A friend told us about a tour they took which they recommended to us with Private Tours. We booked a day tour for Tulum, Cenote Dos Ojos, Turtle Bay and the natural aquarium. Our tour... More

I couldn't have been happier with the fun filled, action packed day I was able to share with my mother. I took my mom on vacation and this tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. Mariano was our tour guide and I'm so happy I was able to meet such an amazing person. I was actually sad when we... More
