What our travelers are saying

Experience of a lifetime

This cenote was truly spectacular and a dream. For lunch we went to a Mayan family’s house. They welcomed us by showing us how to make tortillas and fed us with delicious food that they made in their kitchen.

Best. Tour. Ever. Educational and Fun!

My siblings and I booked a private all-day tour with Robin as our guide and it turned out to be one of the best tours any of us has ever been on. It felt great to have an experience that was so personal. What a find!

A Tour to remember 🙂

This is a true gem in all the tours offered around the area. The knowledge on history, culture, language Robin exhibits is remarkable and the excitement he has sharing his knowledge makes this experience superb…

Expérience très intéressante et unique!

L’expérience fut MAGIQUE! Une vraie cathédrale naturelle, d’une beauté mystique, une autre monde. Nous avons terminé cette belle journée avec un repas typique chez une famille mayenne très accueillante.
