On this trip we had our six year old daughter and three year old son with us (as well as friends with another six year old boy). Needless to say, we had no idea how the day would progress... but, we ended up having a fantastic day!
Helaman picked us up on time and educated us on our way to Coba, where we saw some fascinating ruins and climbed a pyramid. Afterwards we had a great lunch buffet (even the kids enjoyed it), and did a little shopping. Helaman then recommended a Cenote that was better suited for the kids and it was perfect! A few locals, life vests, and small fish in the cenote... our daughter loved "swimming in a real Indian swimming pool"! After a nice swim and snacks, we were off to Tulum which was also fascinating. Helaman told us that he worked at Tulum for many years before becoming a tour guide and it was obvious that he understands many details that most of the other guides we noticed there were not aware of.
At the end of the tour, we walked down the stairs to the beach at Tulum and enjoyed the sand and waves until the beach closed at 4:30. Finally, Helaman once again educated us on our drive back to our hotel.
The vehicle was very comfortable, plenty of water was provided and Helaman used a microphone and diagrams during our trip as he educated us about what we were going to see and what we had seen. He was also very patient with the variety of people in our group (shoppers, small kids, etc.) and allowed us to feel relaxed and unrushed as we moved throughout our day. It really was an excellent day and we will definitely will recommend Helaman to our friends in the future.
I'll attach photos of Coba as Tulum photos are much more readily available.
