After much searching, we found SIAN KA'AN tours and booked for the next day by phone. (This was just before nearly booking a more expensive tour, offering less than half the time at the biosphere.) We were especially lucky to have Pepe as our guide, who's lovely nature and gift for sharing knowledge made the day even more special. We... More

Outstanding! I would do it all over again. Me & my wife enjoyed everything about this tour. I would recommend going first thing in the morning. Pepe was an excellent tour guide and his passion for this Maya Ancient Maya culture it's beautiful biosphere reserve.

This was my second tour with Community Tours! This time I went on The Ancient Canals tour. We traveled by boat through all three lagoons, floated down a canal, saw a ruins, birds, crocodile, manatee ending up near the Boca Padilla bridge where we swam in the extraordinary blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Our guide was Omar! Terrific! I... More

We had a great day!!! The guide really knows everything about the Sian Ka'an area and the Maya culture. Our guide was Kai. He spoke perfect English and answered all our questions. He gave us great tips and he and the captain knew exactly where to stop to spot the animals. The boot was comfortable and cold drinking water was... More

Def. choose this tour company for the Sian Kaan experience as this one supports the local community. The Ancient Canal tour itself was fantastic.They do have excellent guides who are committed to the local communities and the preservation of their environment. Our guide, Pepe truly understands the culture, ideas and history of the mayan people and perfectly conveys this to... More

We did the "Mayaking" tour with Benjamin, and it was excellent. We kayaked in the freshwater lagoon, passed through an ancient canal, and then swam in another freshwater lagoon. All the while, Benjamin pointed out the incredible diversity of birds, discussed local culture, and was very helpful. The freshwater lagoons were so refreshing after so much time in saltwater. Totally... More

Firstly I should add that our guide Pepe was brilliant. His knowledge of the local area and history of the plants, wildlife and traditions of the maya people was impressive. He gracefully answered all of our questions with enthusiasm all day. He told brilliant stories that I will take home with me. The tour included sitting in a stream in... More

Definitely one of the high points of an all-around amazing visit to Tulum. I had tried to book one of the community tours online a few days before our trip, but was unable to make reservations for whatever reason. Once we arrived at our hotel - Posada Punta Piedra - I asked one of the friendly innkeepers what the best... More

They picked us up at 7:00am and we returned close to 5:15pm. There were a total of 11 people (including the 5 of us) in our small group the... More

We visited Sian Ka'an, but only the canal and lagoon excursion. We had booked a private van to take us to Tulum and Sian Ka'an both. It ended up being a great itinerary. We have an 8 year old and 12 year old. We visited Tulum from 9-10:30 and then down to Sian Ka'an to hire the guide for the... More
