What To Expect

Tulum Archaeological Site
Your guide will pick you up from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel between 7am and 9am, depending on your location. Board your air-conditioned coach and head to Tulum, the ancient Mayan city situated atop a cliff overlooking the Caribbean.

For two hours, a guide walks you through tour of the "Walled City" that played such a significant role in Mayan culture and commerce. See El Castillo (The Castle), stroll past the Temple of Frescoes and the Palace, and learn about the Maya who built the city during different periods.

After your tour concludes, wander on your own for an hour, taking photos, enjoying the beach, or even taking a dip in the sea before boarding your coach for the return trip. You'll be back at your hotel at around 2:45pm.

Round-trip transport by air-conditioned coach is included from Cancun and the Riviera Maya, as are entrance fees, bottled water, and professional guides.

This tour was great they guide was with us the whole time made sure we knew what we were doing and was very informative and smart so made it a wonderful experience . It does take some walking for sure my wife has a bad knee and the guide was concern we were falling back of the group he would stay so we knew where we were to go at one time my wife sat on a bench and said go on without her so i kept a I form my point and not once but twice he would ask me if she was ok and stuff I really admired he was worried about her and that means a lot my wife was able to pick up later and he even told us there is a vehicle we can take for like $2 bucks so we not have to walk the long trek back and I appreciated that he told us that saved a lot of wear and tear (we are a older couple btw)
So overall I enjoyed this this guy really knows his stuff

A beautiful place to visit ! About a 6 hour tour which was perfect for us. Our tour guide Pepe was very knowledgeable and friendly
Half Day Tour was Just Right!

We had a great time exploring Tulum with Pepe! Pepe clearly had a love for the history of Tulum, and wanted us to make connections with it! He also had great recommendations for picture spots! The group tour time was long enough to give you a feel for the layout of Tulum, while the independent time was enough to walk around the ruins, up to the cliff for pictures, and still gave time to explore the gift shop or stalls near the exit!
A must do tour!
