  1. Niurka

    This was a fantastic, private tour. Our tour guide “extraordinaire” Alex was amazing & truly knows the Mayan culture. Listening to him was a free education & I can really appreciate the history & the struggle. We also spoke for a long time over lunch because he made it so engaging. I will certainly look this group up when I return to my beloved Mexico. Thank you Alex, for climbing to the top of Ek Balam with my children when my knee gave out at the 52nd step. Niurka 💕
