Whilst at the local market Alejo explained the various fruits, vegetables, spices and the history of the market. We later caught a bus to Dona Bertha's house where we were warmly welcomed and we...

My adult son and I had a great day on the Cenote tour with our guide Alejo. He has such a wonderful personality and great knowledge of the area, plants, history, and people. We were fortunate enough to be the only two on the tour and Ricardo, who was our moto-taxi driver, was very considerate and friendly as we made... More

This was a wonderful trip from start to finish. Each cenote was unique , and I always find the water temperature perfect no matter the weather outside. We happened to be there on a cloudy day, which made it comfortable riding on motorized bicycle carts. We ate at a local woman's home in the afternoon, which was a nice experience.... More

We love mixing it up with the locals. In fact this is why we travel. Our cooking class tour was really interesting and fun. Just loved that Alejo was so informed and spoke excellent English. We will do something different with him next time we come down. thank you for a great day. Rusty and Judy Mellen

What a wonderful day with Alejo and Bertha! We booked very late and everyone was super accommodating to have us (my boyfriend and me) on the tour. Alejo walked us though the market to buy produce and introduce the small group of 4 of us to spices, veggies and fruits, and some anecdotes about the culture of Merida and Mexico.... More

One of the highlights to our trip to Mexico. Our guide, Alejo, took us to three beautiful cenotes near Merida, all of which were unique. He provided expert insight on the history, culture and importance of the sites. Alejo's strong and varied knowledge base (plus his friendly demeanor) definitely sets this tour apart from others similar tours.The moto-tax ride also... More
