What our clients say

  • Highlights: Palenque site. The beach at Tulum

    JB, Leatherhead
  • It was all great - a great combination of fascinating historical sites followed by some glorious days at the beach. Normally I arrange my trips myself, I don' t go through a company; and normally I wouldn't use a guide. But the Mayan culture is so unknown to me and the ruins so fascinating that it was very illuminating to have a guide to explain things. As I said, having Davide around was more like having a local chum than a guide. Loved the Hobbitland cottages at Chichen Itsa; loved being in Merida at Christmas time; loved Campeche and the Edzna ruins; loved getting to know all about the Mayan culture; and loved the totally glorious beach (though rocky) at Playa del Carmen.

    LM, London
  • Highlight?: Calakmul, its a long journey to get there  ( 2 hours from Xpujil alone ) so plenty of anticipation, not busy and complete freedom to walk around as opposed to other sites. Did actually see some monkeys in the trees too. 

    DB, Teddington
  • Highlights?: Tours of Mexico City & Chichen Itza, followed by our stay at Tulum.

    ER, Surbiton
  • Highlight?: The totality of it. Seeing different parts of the country. The mixture of food. ruins and art was just about spot on.

    KJ, Harlow
  • Highlights: We went to a small nature reserve (Copalita) near to our hotel in Hualtuco that was really lovely, teaming with wildlife. Monte Alban was very impressive as well.
