"Marco was a fantastic tour guide. He has 31 years of experience as well as a degree in archeology.

Tulum, Coba and Cenote Tour from Riviera Maya
"Visiting the Mayan ruins... Coba was closed. However, our tour added Muyil in its place. When we arrived, there were no other tours there, making the experience even more special. Even though Coba, the ruin, was not available for viewing, we had lunch in the town of Coba, bringing much needed tourist money to the community - which, I felt, was much appreciated. The tour guide was excellent. And we were on a small van, not a big bus tour! I highly recommend this tour."..."
