Victor is absolutely reliable and a great entertaining tour guide. We always felt safe and enjoyed his companion. We booked two tours with him and and it was never boring. Even it is not cheap, it was worth.

Our guide Victor was insightful from the moment they picked us up, letting us get to know the Mayan people, their region and beliefs. We started out at the refreshing and pristine Cenote, then walked the ecotour to warm up. Next we traveled comfortably on... More
