Know More about this tour

Tulum Ruins Tour (7 hours)Following morning pickup from your hotel in Cancun or Playa del carmen, travel two hours by air-conditioned minivan to the southern tip of the Riviera Maya, where the archaeological site of Tulum awaits. An ancient walled city perched high on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Tulum was built by the Mayans and dates back to the pre-Columbian era. The city thrived during the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, but fell following attack from the Spanish conquistadors. Today its among the best-preserved of all coastal Mayan sites.

Take a 45-minute guided tour of the site to learn about ancient Mayan civilization and hear how the walled fortress of Tulum served as a gateway to the heart of the Mayan Empire. Follow your tour with an hour of free time to explore independently.

Cool off from the sun at your next stop, a Cenote a cavernous sinkhole created by the erosion of limestone bedrock. Take a dip in the waters of this incredible subterranean world, and then head to a local restaurant for a buffet lunch of Yucatn Peninsula specialities such as pork, chicken or beef quesadillas with salad, served with beer, soda or water. Follow lunch with a late-afternoon drive to Coba.
Coba Ruins Tour (4.5 hours)
An hour from Tulum lies the ancient Mayan village of Coba, surrounded by lush vegetation and large lagoons. It was once a busy commercial center and traded extensively with other Mayan settlements in the Quintana Roo area, and today boasts many impressive archaeological wonders.
During your 1-hour guided tour, climb the tallest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan region, the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, and enjoy panoramic views over the rainforest canopy from 140 feet (42 meters) high. Admire the engraved-stone buildings in the Mayan Ball Court and learn of the beliefs and lifestyles of the ancient Mayan people. Explore on your own for another hour after your tour.

After a long day of exploring ancient Mayan ruins, relax on the 2-hour drive back to your Cancun or Playa del carmen hotel.

    Tulum and Coba was wonderful. Rent a bike or take a bicycle taxi in Coba. The senacote (underground lime stone cavern) was pretty but other than a great lunch, not much to see. 1hr stop in Playa Carmen was not needed after a long day out in the heat. Take a breakfast snack as lunch is late in the afternoon.

    Our tour guide was Ramon aka Raymond. This tour lasted 13 hours as opposed to 12 hours, but the one addition hour spent at Playa del Carmen was very much worth it. The great: 1. Our tour guide is highly knowledgable, amicable and funny. I am very glad to have went on tour with Ramon. Our driver was also very responsible and diligent. The atmosphere of this tour was excellent! 2. Cenote zemway is an excellent place to swim. The water temperature is higher than other cenotes. Also, the facilities are very clean. 3 Tulum and Coba are absolutely stunning. We could have spent an entire day there and we would not have seen all of it. 4. There were so many beautiful birds, monarch butterflies, reptiles and plants all over the place. 5. The buffet lunch was amazing. 6. The bus was well conditioned and we had plenty of ice water to cool off! The unexpected: 1. Getting to the important temples in Coba requires a long walk. Would highly recommend getting the tricycle option. My tricycle driver literally become my private tour guide for a while. 2. Absolutely did not expect to be welcomed by a local shaman and receive a traditional purification ritual at cenote zemway. This was definitely the most surprising highlight of all the trips I've had. 3. Did not expect to be sold bottles of tequilas with our pictures on them (lol) The meh: 1. Playa del Carmen is filled with tourist traps and people selling things that they shouldn't be selling. I'm glad to see what it is like in their main street, so I know which places to avoid in the future. 2. The bus is small and much more cramped compared to the ADO bus we used for Chichen Itza, but I think everyone got used to it by the end of the tour. 3. Getting to cenote zemway was definitely a bumpy ride. But the buffet lunch made up for it. 4. The price of a bottle of coke at the buffet lunch was $3 USD, which might be seen as a rip off. 5. Sun screen highly recommended for the Tulum part of the tour. There is little to no shade around. Coba was better because it is in a jungle. The yikes: The start of the trip was a complete mess. We were shoved into a small van and drove to a mall. After we got in the van, everyone had their reservation checked. And after we got to the mall, our reservation was checked, again! Then we were told to wait for 20 minutes. Where exactly? In the "mall". Let's just say everybody scattered by the end of that 20 minutes. Also, the mall was selling very generic shirts that are a quarter in any US flea market for $25 USD. Fortunately, once our real tour guide and driver arrived, everything went much more smoothly.

    Fantastic day, excellent guides Mundo and colleagues did a great job, spectacular sights especially at Tulum! I've dropped a star due to the food situation: this is a long day, 13 hours from pick up to drop off and only 1 very mediocre meal was available which was billed as lunch but wasn't until 4pm. Im T1 diabetic so shouldn't go that long without eating, fortunately one of the stops had a Starbucks so I managed to get a croissant but my tip for this trip would be to bring snacks! Also, wear good shoes or trainers as there's a lot of walking on uneven ground. Great day, just bring food!

    This tour is a long, full day that lasts until 8pm or so. We had an excellent guide in Raimundo, who clearly loves what he does. Tulum was impressive; Coba a bit smaller but evidently a more important site; and our final stop was a fairly new Maya village experience complete with shaman blessing you, and cenote to swim in. Finally, we arrived at Playa del Carmen, the main resort town on the Riviera Maya, and had an hour to wander around. My only complaint was the pickup, not done by the tour company itself. They said they'd pick me up at 7, and they did (so I missed the included breakfast at my hotel since it started at 7), we drove around for an hour, stopping for 10-15 minutes at a time by the side of the road, and finally, at 8, WE WERE BACK ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOTEL. With better information, I could have had my breakfast and not wasted an hour on the bus going in a circle.

    It was an amazing trip!! I absolutely loved the whole experience. Our tour guide Celeste was extraordinary!

  • 10-Oct-2022

    This excursion was fun and very informative! It was a very long day and our guide, George, was very knowledgeable about everything. For Mr, it was a little too long (14 hours), but George kept us informed and moving along.

    Great tour guides!! Tulum is beautiful, great views. Coba had lots of shade and Miguel was great! The Cenote swim was amazing and refreshing after a day in the sun!

    Great experience, we visited Tulum ruins, Coba, cenote and Playa del Carmen. The guide was very kind

    Where to start with this trip. Firstly we told to be outside at 7.20am for collection. We were still waiting 30 minutes later. No problem though as I messaged and was told they were on their way. Collection was made and we thought we were on our way. How wrong we were. We were driven into Playa Del Carmen and dropped outside a shop and told to go inside and collect our wristband. A little confused we did this and was then told to go stand outside and wait to be collected for our tour. There were loads of people milling around in different coloured wrist bands looking confused. Eventually someone told us that a gentleman in an official shirt was our guide and that our transport was only five minutes away. 30 minutes later the gentleman reappeared and put us on another small bus and told us it was taking us on our tour. He then left and we were on a bus, just us and no tour guide. He went round the block and parked up outside the shop again before setting off. So after an hour and half we were underway on our second bus in the direction of Tulum but with no tour guide. A little confused and in the heavy morning traffic the bus pulled over to the side of the road and a random guy got in the bus and told us his name was George and that he was our tour guide for today. In fairness to George he was a personable guy and had plenty of knowledge about the tour. We stopped again at another hotel where we waited for others for the tour but we were told they were a no show when they had clearly just given up waiting. We were now finally on our way to Tulum 2 hours after collection. At Tulum we met several other tours again with different bands on and split into English and Spanish speaking. No problem and we walked down to Tulum and were given a tour and a talk by George about the history of the place. Once done he said we had an hour and to meet him at the start point when we had done. This was a nice amount of time to have and we made our way back to the meeting point for the next leg of our tour. Once we got to the meeting point George met us to tell us he was leaving but we were now heading of with another group with another set of guides. These were already our fourth set of the day. We were told to wait again and we would be on a big coach this time so we sat and waited for more people from other tours to arrive and by now it was 12.30pm so we thought the next stop must have been lunch. Once we were getting on the bus we were told that lunch would be after Coba and off the bus went to. Coba was great and well worth a visit. We were taken to the ruins by our guides who constantly made hints about tips every time you spoke to them. The visit to Coba was a bit of a flying visit before getting back on the bus to be taken to a Mayan village for lunch and a Cenote swim. Lunch was nice if very late in the day at 3.30pm especially as we had young children and had been collected at 7.20am and the Cenote swim was great and needed. Once done we headed back to the bus ready to be taken back to the hotel. Coba is inland so after an hour or so travelling our names were called again and we were told we had to get off the bus to get on yet another transport to be taken to our hotel. We were then dumped at an underpass to be met by another minibus and told this would take us back. To add insult to injury, we handed our guide a tip as we got off the bus but he gave us it back and told us it wasn't worth it as it wasn't enough. It was a token from us as after all the messing about we didn't think any tip was worth it. We were eventually taken back to our hotel and dropped off exhausted and not sure how we actually managed to get to all the places. We will say we got to see everything we wanted to and the lunch and the Cenote were great but the organisation was appalling. I would say this could be a great trip but I would suggest you avoid it.

    Tour was as expected in that we went to the indicated, but pick time and location changed the night before. We changed buses 6 times (6 different buses) bus changes always happened at some shop full of tourist merchandise. We ran late all day(dropped off at 8pm), and the “buffet lunch” was 2 meats and rice with fruit as dessert. Very poor.
