Amazing experience!
Aug 2021
Perfect mix of all the sights if you are in the area for a short stay. Daniele and Pascual picked us up on time from the resort. The vehicle was clean and air conditioned. We also were provided with cold drinking water, soft drinks and beer (not a beer drinker, so can't comment on the taste and quality). We got to Tulum around 9 am and were done with our tour by the time many-many tourists group started to arrive. Daniele told us about Mayan history in a short but very informative way so it was not boring or overwhelming. After we went to cenote, had lunch in a traditional Mexican restaurant and snorkeled with turtles. That was totally unforgettable experience. This tour is perfect for families with young kids! I want with 6 years old and she was not thrilled about Tulum ruins and also struggled with snorkeling. Daniele was extremely patient and flexible to adjust the tour to meet our needs. He also did whatever it takes to make sure my daughter got the full experience from the trip and saw the turtles. She only lasted about half an our out of an hour time that was allocated to snorkeling with the turtles, so Daniele offered to stay and play in the sand with her while I continued exploring underwater beauty. He did an awesome job! After taking many group tours I should say this tour worth every dollar spent! Even thought it was 7.5 hours tour it went by very fast and was not tiring.

Perfect Mix of all the Sights
Aug 2021 • Family
What a great day. Did Ojos was absolutely gorgeous and insanely refreshing after the painful heat of the morning. Despite the insane temperature, the round of Tulum were incredible, of course, and Daniel was such a great, easy-going and helpful guide. He was very patient with our group (including my very whiny child) and even played with him so I could snorkel with the turtles. What a nice guy! This is a great trip, but keep on mind you're energy will be totally zapped. Do not make plans for dinner!! Just chill after. Thanks, Daniel!!

Note: maybe not recommended for kids who can't snorkel. Also, the walk around the ruins isn't crazy hard by any means, but definitely challenging for tiny humans with low patience thresholds.

Thank you for your 5* review! Indeed in August heat is something1 this is why we go as early as possible to visit the ruins first and cool off after in the cenote! I'm glad you had a great trip with our team. Kind regards, claire

Must do!
This tour is a must! After many “group” tours over the years, we decided to do a private tour so as to avoid long waits and travel times. Dulce was our guide and she was excellent! The cenote was our favorite part of the tour, but the whole tour was great and well planned. My 9 year old loved it all.

Perfect blend of time and activities
Mar 2021
This was a great excursion. Dulce was our tour guide and Pascal our driver. Good amount of communication prior to the trip to work out the details. They arrived on time for pick-up and off we went. Tulum was interesting the Dulce had lots of fun facts. It was just long enough to see the site but not too long that the teenagers lost all interest in the tour. We selected the cavern cenote and that was really different from the open top cenotes. We had a nice lunch and then off to Akumal to see the turtles. Great tour around the bay. I would highly recommend based on getting to do a variety of activities without a long and exhausting day.

Just Amazing!
Mar 2021 • Friends
JJ did an amazing job in his tour of the ruins, giving us all sorts of facts and information. He took us to a quiet cenote that was just our vibe and took our pictures all along the way. Swimming with the Turtles was a spectacular experience and highly recommend! So glad we chose the private tour, as JJ kept us entertained while keeping up with a our pace!

Don’t miss this tour and guide Juan
Mar 2021 • Friends
Do not miss this tour! The tour was amazing as was our guide Juan and driver Rodrigo. If you decide to take this tour you will not be sorry. Our guide Juan was so knowledgeable and helpful. I saw things that I would have never seen on a standard group tour and Juan knew how to navigate away from crowds. I felt very safe given the COVID situation the world is in.

Best Tour Ever with JJ!
Jan 2021 • Family
We took the Tulum and Tortuga tour with JJ (Juan). It was absolutely amazing! JJ was so accommodating and made us all so excited to be there. He was super knowledgeable about the ruins and the whole Rivera Maya area. My mom is very scared of the ocean and he made her comfortable enough to go in and brought her back to shore halfway through to make sure she felt safe. We never thought she would even go in! The lunch was awesome and he told us the best things to order and best drinks. He made this experience the highlight of our entire Mexico trip!

Absolute Adventures is an Absolute Must!
Jan 2021 • Couples
Every aspect of Absolute Adventures was amazing! I am so happy we found this tour group for our January 2021 Cancun vacation! Claire was so helpful when booking our tours and was super accommodating. She also responded quickly to our emails when we had questions. Our two tours with Juan and Rodrigo were the highlight of our trip! We had the best time. They were friendly and went out of their way for us during our tours. Absolute adventures gives great recommendations for when to start your tour so that you beat the crowds of people. Both days we were the very first group of people at popular attractions and were able to tour them more peacefully and get great photos. Juan told us cultural/historical facts during our tours and also was super nice about taking pictures of our group for us. Rodrigo kept the bus and the equipment super clean and had everything ready to go all of the time! We loved lunch at the two different spots included in our tours and thought this was a nice option over other tours I researched that only included a “box lunch.” They also had drinks for us in the van. Absolute Adventures takes precautions for covid and we loved that these were private tours of just our family. We loved our tours and can’t wait to visit again!
