Highlight of our trip!
Mar 2020
Amazing day with Manuel touring Tulum and Coba! He was a wonderful guide and lots of fun to be around. He took some amazing photos of our family and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch together. So glad we took the private tour - very worth it!

Excellent Private tour of Coba dn Tulum
Mar 2020
My husband, myself and 3 young adult children went on the private archaeological tour to Coba and Tulum Mayan ruins. Everything was perfect and as advertised. Pick up at hotel was seamless. Early Tulum entry was much appreciated, having been there before in the crowds. This was my first time to Coba and it was the highlight of the trip. The Tour guide was very informative and answered all my questions about Mayan and Mexican history/geography. He was a wonderful host and took wonderful pictures of family. Definitely Excellent trip.

Amazing Day and Tour
Sep 2019
We were so glad we found this private tour and had a great day with our guide Juan. Pickup and drop off were seamless. Being able to be on a private tour meant we got to both sites before the huge crowds, and we went at our own pace. Juan was able to provide the perfect amount of time, and information at each place based on our needs. He was friendly and very knowledgable. The authentic lunch in the town by Coba was great food we would have never found on our own. An overall 5 star experience.

An unforgettable tour of Tulum and Coba
Aug 2019
My teen son and I had been most looking forward to our tour of Coba and Tulum out of all the things we had planned for our Mexican vacation. Having studied archeology in college it was a dream of mine to make a trip to see various mayan sites in the Yucatan including Coba. Our day turned out to meet and exceed our great expectations. The day was expertly planned so as to best avoid the crowds andJuan was extremely personable, knowledgable and patient with all of our many questions. We felt very comfortable and well taken care of throughout the day and the lunch we had was delicious. I heartily recommend this company based upon the experience we had.

Great day seeing the Mayan Ruins
Jul 2019 • Couples
This was an awesome tour, it was just my husband and I and our tour guide. We had Rodrico (our driver) and Hector (our guide). We left our hotel and went to Tulum, then went to Coba and then to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. Hector was super friendly and informative. Would definitely use them again.

Amazing tour with Juan & Pasqual
We had an amazing day touring Tulum & Coba ruins with Juan & Pasqual. Early morning pickup at our hotel lobby to beat the crowds. Very knowledgeable guide, answered all questions, very personable. Made my niece feel comfortable practicing her Spanish! Amazing authentic Mexican lunch. Thanks for an amazing day!

Private tour of Tulum and Coba with Juan and Manuel!
May 2019 • Friends
Juan and Manuel were our guides for this private tour. The tour was booked by the bride and groom for wedding guests who wanted to visit these sites. Juan was very knowledgeable about the Mayan history. Manuel provided the fun entertainment! Both guides were very courteous and on time. They gave us time to tour the ruins before boarding the bus to Coba. Our tour included lunch at a local restaurant known for its conchita ( pulled pork).

Coba tour was a great way to work off the lunch. You can bike or choose a pedicab that will take you to the pyramid. The bike trail is about a mile. If you bike in and later decide you can’t bike back, there are pedicabs available.

Both guides made sure that we were well hydrated and kept giving us water, sodas, beer, flavored waters, Manuel took photos of our group,

You can leave your items in the bus while touring as the bus driver stays with the bus.

Thank you Juan and Manuel for a fun-filled day. If you book this tour, make sure to ask for Juan and Manuel. This tour is well worth the money.

"EXCELLENT TOUR - HIGHLY RECOMMEND" Private tour to Tulum & Coba
Apr 2019 • Couples
Tour started with Juan and Pascal arriving promptly a few minutes ahead of time. They had a newer van and a supply of water, juice and drinks on ice for us. We arrived at Tulum for opening. Juan was excellent at explaining the history and answering all our questions. He also had a binder with pictures which also explained some of the history. A very pleasant surprise was he also took pictures for us, both at Tulum & Coba. We went at our own pace and could just enjoy the tour knowing we would have pictures of all the right highlights with us in the pictures or not, our choice. They were emailed to us. Thank you Juan! We then proceeded to Coba. Another surprise was our tour included the rental of pedi-cabs, as this is very large and the best way to get around is to use the pedi-cabs, which we had planned to rent our self. Juan then took us in a reverse direction thus avoiding the large tours that had now arrived. This was a excellent way to do it. Juan again explained and pointed out all the history. This made it so much better than having to deal with a large group on tour. All the while suppling cold drinks for us as it was very warm. When we finished at Coba we then went to a lovely restaurant not to far from Coba. Once again Juan helped us with ordering, the food and drink was delicious as we now were ready for lunch, which was also supplied by the tour. We returned to our resort early afternoon allowing us to relax after a wonderful tour. Juan was a excellent tour guide. Absolute Adventure made our priority of touring the ruins a highlight memory of our vacation. The extra cost of a private tour is more than worth it. They have excellent customer service. The booking and payment, which they do no take full amount until day of your tour, was very easy. You get so much more information and at your pace than a large tour, you will never want to do the large tours again. What ever you want to see or do on your vacation this is the very best and only way to take a tour. We highly recommend Absolute Adventure as the best tour company!! Susan and Christina (Marie)
