Paco was the best guide - nice trip to Tulum Ruins, great guide through the history of the Mayans. Super great reef snorkeling and then the cenote and caves were unbelievable. Paco was wonderful in informing everyone on what was going on and helped make the trip enjoyable for everyone. Definitely a highlight of our vacation!!! I hope you are lucky enough to get Paco as your guide!!

It didn't matter that it was rainy, our guide Maria was so full of life and joy. The day was perfect starting with Tulum ruins, then a short ride for snorkeling, and the lunch and cenote swim in the jungle was the best! The entire experience was amazing. We have booked with Viator many times and they have never steered us wrong. Thank you for an incredible day!

We enjoyed this tour tremendously and would highly recommend it especially if the tour guide Ulrich. He was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and addressed any concerns. The cenote swim was spectacular and out of this world!

We had a very full day with a trip to Tulum where we met a wonderful Maya man named Marten. This lush archaeological site, which is located overlooking the Caribbean Sea is filled with remnants of a brilliant civilization. Leaving the ruins, we went snorkeling off of Tulum Beach where we guided to vast areas filled with turtles, stingrays, varied fish, and many types of coral. We had about 45 minutes here, which was plenty. Off to a buffet lunch and then to see two cenotes. We explored the second vast censored swimming through chambers formed by stalagtites everywhere. Unbelievable experience. Nico was our guide and he was the best! Thank you for giving us this experience.

The overall sequence of events is appropriate and the time spent in each place is enough To experience everything. Tulum Ruins is fun. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and the history of the place is cool. We found turtles and stingrays at the snorkeling site- it is fun! The Cenote and the cenote dive is an out of this world experience. If you are claustrophobic, it is not for you. Ocean tour peeps are amazing- Nico, Marcial and Guillermo are amazing. They are chill and not rushed at all. Of note, this is a good time to go. We had a good luck i guess for when all of the places we visited were not crowded at all. The thing that is constant in all places—- Mosquitos! So wear something or bring something to protect you from these blood suckers. They are hungry 😋 Thank you Ocean Tours! Highly recommended.

My bf and I absolutely loved this tour. We had a blast snorkeling, we got see turtles and sting rays! And swiming in the cenotes was also amazing, the water was so refreshing. I would advise to take some mosquito repellent for your tour of Tulum. Our tour guide Victor was very knowledgeable and spoke great English, he made the trip even better. He even came prepared with an ice chest of water bottles and snacks! Totally worth buying this tour, you won't regret it. I wish I could go back! Dont forget to tip your tour guide and drivers because they are amazing at their jobs!

The tour was fantastic. Tulum, for me, was very interesting and beautiful. Next stop was snorkeling. We saw lots of fish, manta rays and two green sea turtles. Then we went to the cenote. The water in the cenote was chilly, but felt great. The cave system is very interesting. All in all, another great tour

This tour was an all day excursion with three different adventures. Maria was our guide and was the happiest person with the best attitude ever. The Tulum ruins are so beautiful, and I can’t rave enough about the cenotes that you get to actually swim in. We went into a cavern and a cave and felt the difference- what an incredible, unforgettable experience. Highly recommend this!!!

I was not prepared for a packed day (3 big activities all in!) but with our tour guide Luca and driver Luis, I enjoyed this tour very much. Luca was very patient with me and never left me when I asked him I to stay closer during snorkeling and cenote swim. He was very calm so I overcame my nervousness and really enjoyed the tour. The highlight for me are seeing the ruins in Tulum, stingrays and turtles during the snorkeling and the refreshing cenote swim. They have special touches from the cold water, umbrellas, clean gear, snacks and lunch and cold towels. I would recommend this tour to anyone! Even if we had to switch vans as our wiper was not working and it was raining so hard going back, I didn't mind as overall it was a great experience. Also, they teamed with Alexandra our photographer. She really gave us good pictures!! Thank you Luca and Luis once again!

We had an amazing time. It could not have been better. From the first moment everything went great. Pickup from our hotel was right as scheduled. Guide (Benito) was funny, knowledgeable and made sure everyone was comfortable and safe at all times. We saw majestic Mayan ruins right on the ocean, gorgeous snorkeling water where we were lucky to see rays and turtles and we capped off the day with a swim in a stunning cenotes. Food and water were provided at all times during the trip as well. Overall an awesome experience that I would definitely recommend.

This was an awesome once in a lifetime experience. Our tour guide Luca and the travel group was great. Luca was very friendly and explained what to expect for the rest of the day. Everything from transportation, food and water arrangements, umbrellas during walk through Tulum ruins, life jackets and floats (for those who don't know swimming well) for first class. It was a nice cozy small group van. Would totally recommend Ocean Tours.

I really enjoyed the variety in this tour. The guides were excellent. Transportation from the hotel was included and on time. It was a long day but filled with variety and excitement. The visit to Tulum was great, and the snorkeling afterwards was very good. We saw two big turtles, a stingray and many fish. After a healthy lunch, we walked through a dry cenote and then went underground and swam in a cenote. It was one of the neatest experiences I have had in quite a while. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone considering it. Be prepared for mosquitos in the outdoor lunch and cenote area. The day may be too long for smaller children.

This tour was everything I had hoped for with my trip to Tulum. Our tour guide Sylvania is so passionate about the history of the Ruins, Cenote and Caves. You can do the Ruins, Cenote and caves without a guided tour but I think you would miss out on so much. It was a full day of adventure and I am so glad we did it. I went with some girl friends but can't wait to take my family to experience this trip. I definitely reccomend the 3 in 1 Discovery Combo Tour.

If you do one thing in Mexico, make sure it’s this ( because it’s 3 things). Great sites, great tours and good food.

Very productive tour! Was a full on day which gave us a diverse range of activities. Very tired at the end of the day that’s for sure! Would definitely recommend. Great value for money.

Great day, but tiring. Pick up at hotel on time and smooth. Covered Tulum pretty quick, but very informative Mayan guide. We loved the Cenotes (in water) incredible stalagtites/stalagmite formations. While simple, we thought the food was good and authentic. Saw nice variety of fish in the Akumal area. Juan was a great guide! we really enjoyed his demeanor, humor and information.

Awesome tour by guided by Gina. She gave us a history lesson at the ruins, she gave us an educational tour in the cenotes and while snorkeling, and best of all she let us have fun. So easy to ask her questions and the people that accompanied her from the company. The driver, i think Michael, was his name was friendly and had the van cleaned everytime we got in and out. He helped with all the gear and was as friendly as can be. Eric did a fantastic job taking photos of us during our snorkeling session. Awesome crew, our party of 6 all had a blast and would recommend this company and tour for anyone wanting to see Tulum. The best part of this tour were the snacks that were given in the van. So not only did we get a lunch by the cenotes but we also got a sack lunch with chips, dessert, and some empanadas. (however you spell it).
