Everything was excellent, first time booking with Viator and I was very pleased with the results. Our trip to chacchoben Mayan Ruins was excellent. Thanks to the driver and our 2 guides.. we really enjoyed it 😀


The ruins were amazing but we had poor time management by the guides. We were including lunch and time at the beach with this tour. We had maybe an hour for lunch and we never had enough time for the beach.


The guides were great. Franklin and Gabby were very knowledgeable and took their time to make sure their groups saw everything and got their pictures. The restaurant was a disappointment. We had 90 minutes in town at the beach club it took them 80 minutes to serve some salsa, chips, quesadillas and two rounds of drinks. We had 0 time to enjoy the town or beach because of that. Otherwise it would be 5 Stars.


This tour was excellent and informative. Juan Carlos and his team did a wonderful job. The ruins were beautiful to see, and the history is astounding. We wish we would have had more time at the beach and lunch. If we ever did this trip again, we would probably skip the lunch included part and get our own meal.


We really liked this excursion off our cruise. It was about 4 hours long but we got to see some rich Mayan history and our guide Francisco had so much passion for his history!

Carlos and Victor were very fun and kind. Driving was safe, and the tour of the ruins was small and a very good size. The beach was beautiful.


We booked this tour thru Toucan Tours was the local company they hooked us up with. We had a fabulous time!! They took great care of us and were very friendly, knowledgeable and got us back and forth to the ship with no issues at all. Our tour guides were great and the bus ride to the Myan Ruins was enjoyable. Loved that we stopped on the way back and were able to buy some fresh pineapple and mango to enjoy eating on the ride. Love helping to support the locals that way! The beach part of the tour was an added bonus and we really enjoyed our lunch and drinks there too. The service was very good!!! Definitley recommend this tour.


We booked this tour on the morning of. Needless to say, we were last minute and unsure of the details. The communication to get pickup details was a bit challenging, but all worked out. We were able to get all of the details, get to where we needed to be, and enjoy a very informative and well planned experience. The bus was comfortable and clean, the guide kind and knowledgeable, lunch was good and the beach time relaxing. The guide made it a priority to get everyone back to port in a timely way for all-aboard. This experience was worth the investment!


We scheduled the Chacchoben Ruins, beach break and lunch tour. Carlos was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable and informative. When we got to the beach, our group of four was the only one who had scheduled the lunch. This would have left no time for us at the beach. Carlos arranged for us to get a taxi back to the port when we were done at the beach. We were very pleased that they gave us the tour we had planned for.


Such an amazing experience! The ruins were beautiful and Carlos was very knowledgeable about the history. He was funny and entertaining! We had authentic empanadas on the way back to port and they were amazing! I wish we would have had more time on the beach but overall it was a great day! Thank you Ernesto and Carlos!
