Overview

Private nature tours for couples, families and groups of friends in and around Cancun and the Riviera Maya, with Volker a nature guide with 16 years of experience. Go on private tour with me, to discover the authentic Mexican country and its people on tours into nature and out of the way places, like small Mexican towns and Mayan villages, where no other tour groups are going and cool places like Sian Ka`an Biosphere.

THIS is THE way to get a real sense of Mexico. Volker arrived at our very difficult to find hotel near 5th Ave. in PDC. We casually proceeded to the various stops on the Mexico Lindo tour. By "casual" I mean NON-RUSHED, completely and fully...More

Volker picked us up from our hotel exactly on time, 5:30 am. Seemed early, but he knew that by getting to the ruins early we would beat the heat and the crowds. All day long we were one step ahead of the large tour buses....More

We've visited Mexico several times, but never saw it like this. We were able to visit a working jungle camp and a small town where we got to see how the people really live. It was a really rare and authentic experience that we wouldn't...More

I cant recommend Volkers tours more - informative, customized, casual, informal, non touristy - just really perfect for anyone looking to understand this area more.
