  • 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

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was a fine introduction to the Mayan ruins and civilization, and included a charming visit with some of the living descendants of the Mayan people. Antonio, our guide, was friendly and entertaining. The day was well paced with a mix of activities, travel time, and time to explore the ruins on our own. Excellent value and a memorable experience.

  • There was some initial confusion about the 6:30 pickup time of the trip but it turns out that March is considered low-season and 9:00 pickup was fine because there were few tourists at Uxmal, and none at Kabah. Everything about this trip was fabulous. The van seemed brand new and although it seated around 20, we were 5 in total. Our guide Gabriel created an interesting and fun experience. He gave us lots of info on Mayan culture and history and we had plenty of time to explore on our own. Lunch was very nice with plenty of choices. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour -- Uxmal and Kabah are breathtaking, the ride was comfortable, you can leave stuff in the van if necessary while touring the site, and everything went along at a comfortable pace.

  • We found the tour of Uxmal more interesting and the site more impressive than Chichen Itza. The ability to get up close was part of the reason, the other was the very excellent, knowledgeable, and personable guide.

  • The trip itself was pretty good. The guide did a really fine job of making the tours of the ruins interesting, sharing his knowledge and moving the trip along at a gentle pace. In fact he was excellent. The ruins themselves were nice and quiet compared to Chichen, and made a good day out. The 3 course lunch didn't happen until about 2.30 or later. It was fine, local food, but not really cooked that well. Some bits were nice but my wife's chicken was bone dry as if iy had been hanging around a while. Nice to have a chat to other guests though.
    The problem with this trip was that it was advertised as an Early Access Tour and the start of the tour was meant to be around 6am, but to be ready up to an hour before that for possible pick up. I checked with Viator who assured me yes, that was the correct time and would last about 8 hours, so I went ahead and booked. Back by 3pm. Maybe a siesta by the pool and then head off in the evening for a nice meal. Imagine how happy we were being ready at 5am and no-one turning up. The hotel kindly made a few phone calls and after a while they came back and said the trip actually starts at 9am, and we would be picked up later. So around 9.20am and 4 hours of waiting time later, we got on the bus. Not sure whose fault this was, Viator or the tour company, but lack of communication between them was obvious. Worth seeing the ruins and overall a good day, apart from an awful start. Think they may have removed mention of Early Access now from the title of the tour as suggested
