“Excellent private tour to Ek Balam ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

I coordinated a private tour with Toon who was very patient in offering me options. I chose a guided tour of Ek Balam, two cenotes, a visit to a traditional Mayan family home to make tortillas and a tour around the local Mayan market. It was a great day all spent with Juan Carlos who was very personable and kind to us. He even took us to pick up our luggage at our hotel and dropped us off at the bus station after our tour. It was nice having a private car and guide since we had free reign over how our time was spent.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Valladolid.They offer excellent small group tours or you can set up a private tour with them too if you just tell them your interests.

“One of Our Best Days in the Yucatan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

My family of four went on the Go Wonders Tour and had an awesome experience. Our Guide, Gilberto, was very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable of the Mexican and Mayan history and culture. The highlight of the day was our early arrival while the temps were pleasant and crowds were low to Chichen Itza. We were introduced to Julian, who was our Guide for the next hour and a half or so at CI. You could tell he had a passion for the site and we knew he had to be one of the top Guides given his knowledge and experience. We then transferred to a beautiful, local cenote operated by the Mayans for a quick dip, then lunch there served by local Mayans. From there we travelled to the town of Izamal to tour the Plaza, carriage ride to climb a small Mayan ruin (Gilberto said for "training"), then carriage ride to a much higher ruin to climb for great views and pictures. Returned to Valladolid around 5:30pm a bit tired but an amazing day. Would like to return someday and go on another MexiGo Tour.

“Not just tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

I used Mexigo tours for airport pick up, hotel booking and two excellent tours. We had been sent a picture of Juan Carlos, our transfer driver (which was a nice touch), and after a long flight, the transfer straight to our hotel was very welcome. Toon had recommended, and booked our hotel for us and we had a lovely room in the Meson Marques hotel. Our favourite tour was the Go Flamingo tour on the Rio Logartos. In a small group, somehow we managed to pack the day with lots of different experiences at a very easy pace. Our guide, Gilberto was knowledgeable and we were never bored. The Go Wonders tour was a great mixture culture and nature. Chichen Itza was incredible and we could have easily spent another day there, and swimming in the cenote with swallows nesting in the walls, was unforgettable. So many wonderful memories were created.
So yes, I would absolutely recommend Mexigo Tours.

“A perfect day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

This tour seemed like a trip arranged by friends. From the first visit to the office, where Toon shared ideas for restaurants and other things we might do to our last visit, following our day of touring the Rio Lagartos, when we were treated to an excellent local liqueur, we felt like the company really wanted to share their piece of paradise with us. The river is lovely, and Gilberto and Juan Carlos were quick to spot a variety of birds, including the famed flamingos. They both offered insights into life in Mexico, and Gilberto kept us all laughing. I am wary of tours, but this was so well-planned and so competently carried out that it completely won me over. You won't go wrong with this excellent company and its personal approach.

Thank you very much TravelerOmie for the excelent resume of your experience. You´re right, Ria Lagartos is still a not touristy well kept paradise we want to share with everybody visiting Valladolid. There we can see luckily a whole year long flamingos and other birds. And if we can share this with new friends, in small groups, it´s even much better!

“Knowledgable, personable, and well-organzied”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

We enjoyed an all-day tour of Chichén Itza. a cenote, and Izamal with a group of only five of us in an air-conditioned van. They picked us up at our bed & breakfast, got us to the Chichén Itza site well before the big tour busses flooded the place with people, helped us to enjoy the cenote, provided an excellent lunch, and actually customized our tour in Izamal because the group was more interested in seeing an artist work than touring the shops.
I can't say enough good things about this tour company. The groups are small, the guides knowledgable and helpful, the organization excellent. We even stopped into their little storefront location behind the cathedral for restaurant suggestions on another day in town.
They really look out for you and want you to enjoy your stay. They are upfront with all costs, treat you well, and provide several interesting all day or half day tours. Even though I don't often like tours, this one was well worth it because we learned so much and had such a full day. This is a great tour company.
