  • A day-long tour out of Merida, starting with a hotel pick-up, felt almost as if our guide Gabriel was leading a private expedition to these two remarkable sites. We paused now and then for background into Mayan astronomy, everyday life, practices, beliefs, and play, as well as some sense of the Mayan language. The sites amaze, and can be appreciated fully without commercial interference and large crowds. The stonework, architecture, math, and astronomical precision are breathtaking, and the Mayan Heritage team led by Gabriel that day made the trip a memorable one.

  • Guilmer, our Guide/Driver, was very good in both languages.

  • I enjoyed this tour but the problem with
    this tour and many other tours I took in Mexico was that the tours use local guides at the site. These guides have a great knowedge of the sight and it seems you are often given a detailed lecture. My wife liked this approach but read about the sights before and would like a less through presentation so I can have more time to explore and take photos.

  • Joshua was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and very patient with us, giving us ample time to take as many photos as we wanted. At no point did we ever feel rushed. We went on a somewhat rainy day, and whenever we had to stand under a branch etc to stay dry, Joshua was able to fill our heads with much interesting information. The sites are even more breathtaking than the photos. The stormy day made for some stunning photos. At the end of the day, Joshua asked if we wanted to see the Chocó Story Museum, and we did. This was also fascinating, and you should not pass up the opportunity. Because it was a cooler day, my husband and I ordered a hot chocolate from the barista, and it was very delicious and also very different from the sample you try later. It was a fantastic way to spend a day.

  • This tour was the highlight of our trip so far! We were picked up on time and were in a very comfortable van for our small group of 7 people. Our guide was very knowledgable about the area and ruins while also allowing us to roam and take as many pictures as we wanted. The company is Mayan Heritage if you want to go through them personally, I will in the future.
    We spent a good amount of time in Uxmal exploring all the areas, it is so beautiful and not too many tourists. We were driven to a restaurant where we got to see how pibil is cooked and taken out of the ground. We ate cochinita pibil and had chaya juice with lunch - very delicious. We received a full 3 course meal as the included lunch. Soup, entree, and dessert of your choice. After that we went to Kabah which is much smaller but still as amazing. It felt like we were the only ones there because not too many people go to Kabah.
    My husband said it was the best day ever, he has loved Mayan history for so long that this was perfect.
    HIGHLY recommend.

  • We so enjoyed this tour when we visited Mérida recently. Gabriele was an excellent guide, sharing everything in Spanish and English, and making it interesting while also answering questions and leaving us time to explore a bit on our own. He even pointed out the best spots to take photos in.

    Pick up was at a local hotel and a bit late, but traffic can make it tough to get around the city quickly we experienced that on our own before this tour and they were very responsive when we called to be sure we hadnt missed them. We had a really nice lunch stop dont let the mobile home park fool you - that restaurant was very good! and were still back in town at a reasonable time.

    These places are amazing and highly recommend making time to see them in person.

  • This was an amazing tour to a truly magical place. Excellent value for money with everything included except drinks and tips. We were lucky that it was not high season so could enjoy Uxmal without the crowds and Kabah was a lovely hidden gem. Samuel was a very pleasant and knowledgable guide.

  • I loved visiting Uxmal and, in my personal opinion, this archeological site is more impressive than Chichen Itza. Even though the pick-up at my hotel was 45 minutes later than scheduled, I had a really good time and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Kabah was a smaller site, it only took us 20 minutes to see, but it was an interesting place. We stopped for lunch break at a restaurant in the area, I totallt recommend the Cochinita Pibil, it was delicious! We had the option to visit the Chocolate Museum but we were so tired we decided to go back to Merida's city center.

  • Excellent tour with experienced Tour Guide.

  • Farancisco was an outstanding guide who really knew his business
