Another great experience by Mayans' Explorers. About two years ago we went on a Mayans' Explorers private tour to Coba + Tulum and were extremely happy with the entire experience. This time we went on another private tour with Mayans' Explorers to Chichen Itza, Ek Balam and Ik Kil cenote. Again, it was totally worth it. When I booked the... More

Fantastic full day tour with three small kids. Our guide has tailor-made the program on the spot so all of us had a great time. We had the right mixture of archeology, history, running, swimming, climbing and Mexican food.

Diego was our driver and Efran was our tour guide. We were promptly picked up and even offered snacks since it was very early. Efran wanted to make sure we had something before we started our adventure (nice gesture). We had a couple and 1 other individual in our group. They were all very lovely and nice to meet. Efran...

Had a great time on our tour. Was very educational and our guide had lots of information. I personally really liked the fact it was private. Was more comfortable asking questions.

The Mayan Experience was a great tour that four locations within about 12.5 hours. Murux our archaeologist and professor tour guide definitely made the trip memorable with his quick wit and vast knowledge of the area. I wouldn't hesitate to request him for our next tour. :) Snacks and water were provided during the tour which was nice and the... More

A UCLA-trained archaeologist and professor of archaeology who grew up on the Chichen Itza site where his parent(s) were also working on the reconstruction, Murox is smart, articulate, and knows a lot more than any other guide, I would imagine. He has a strong passion for the Mayan history. He is a man who lives in two worlds: the jungle... More

We had a wonderful private tour. We were more interested in the history of the sites, and since it was a private tour we opted to skip the cenote visit. Our guide was very accommodating and very well educated on the history of the sites. I would definitely use Mayans' Explorers again!

Our tour guide was Luis (sp)? He was very knowledgeable about the Mayan sites. He made the whole experience enjoyable, even for my twins (12), who were not as excited as me about the ruins visit! Would highly recommend the private tours because it helps take the pressure off of time constraints and allows personal interaction with the tour guide.

Muresh was amazing on this tour! Really cool to get the insight of a real archaeologist - the real facts, not the "tourist" ones. The cenote, while touristy, was a very nice, picturesque one. Ek Balam was definitely the highlight, you have to go here if you want to see Mayan ruins.
