Went to the Mayan Ruins and they walked around with us, giving us background of the ruins. After that, they took us to a ceynote and waiting for us, which was an amazing... More

My wife and I purchased this tour to Chichenitza along with another tour selection (Xcaret nature park) at the airport in Cancun for a total cost of $150 for the two of us. This included round-trip bus and a noon meal. The price seemed reasonablly discounted in return for agreeing to listen (the following day) to a one-hour pitch for... More

Highly recommend Mayan Discovery Tours for day trip to Coba & Tulem ruins. Our guide, Joselyn, was very knowledgeable & enthusiastic about her subject. She & driver, Jorge, took good care of us, took us for a wonderful lunch & looked out for us in the sun. Can't say enough good things!

From the time Pepe and Jesus picked us up until they dropped us off we had a wonderful day. Pepe was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing information both about Cancun and the Mayan history. They took us to a fun restaurant for lunch where we tried some new things. It was definitely worth the money to have the private... More

My family was in Playa Del Carmen for a week for an A&W convention. With us being there for work, we had very little time to adventure out. Our hotel hired Special Mayan Tours to take us on a private guide tour of the Tulum ruins. We only had about 4 hours to work with and our tour guide, Franciso... More

I highly recommend the Mayan Expedition III, which is four days and three nights and visits the Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Kabah archeological sites plus the towns of Merida and Izamal. It was everything my husband and I hoped for and more! First off, our guide, Manuel Estrella, was a great companion - personable, helpful, and very well... More

Manuel was so knowledgeable, had a good sense of humour and highly tuned into humanity. We learned so much about the Mayan Indians and the Mayan culture, as... More

I found these guys on Trip Advisor because of the reviews and the background of their training in Mayan history. I tend to look for tours that allow you flexibility and focus on history and not just tourist stuff. I emailed Pepe and he got back to me right away. We had a group of 12 people needing to see...

Knowledgeable, entertaining guide that made the experience unforgettable. Pepe's depth of knowledge of the history of the Mayan people and the archaeological facts of the area make him a very memorable guide. Recommend to everyone!!!
