Cesar was an incredible tour guide he was extremely knowledgable, very flexible and singularly focused on ensuring that we had a great time. We loved spending the day with him, learning about Mayan history, Mexico and having fun adventures jumping in cenotes. We recommend Cesar to anyone, we felt like we left a friend when we said goodbye!!
Colette O’DonnellUnited Kingdom
Cesar was a great guide with amazing English. He was knowledgeable and interesting and very easy to talk to. We learned a lot at Tulum and then had a great time snorkelling and swimming in a cenote. Cesar swam with us with a torch making the most of our swim. He was very flexible and accommodated our requirements. We highly recommend Cesar.
Luke SanchezUnited States
We hired a tour guide for the day while vacationing in Tulum. The communication with Cesar Otniel our tour guide was excellent. He arrived promptly at 8:00 AM to pick us up in a very comfortable van with waters and sodas. We were 6 adults so he was vey accomodating to what every wanted to do. We visited the Tulum ruins as well as some of the cenotes. He is extremely knowledgeable and we all thoroughly enjoyed his stories. Cesar, thank you again for making our Tulum trip so special! Best tour guide ever!
Deborah WatersUnited States
Cesar is an excellent guide and I'd surely hire him again. His tour of Chichen Itzá was informative and entertaining. He made sure we got great pictures and answered all our questions. My daughter got stung by something while there and he even had a spray in his backpack to stop the stinging. Lunch was fun and he was patient while everyone in our party of 9 jumped off the cliff at the Cenote (or who chickened out like me lol). It was a very enjoyable, relaxing day (sorry again about forgetting my phone!)
Wiiiam GrahamUnited States
We use Tours by Locals when we travel and have had nothing but great experiences. If your in Cancun I highly recommend Cesar's Private guide for a day Tour. You can set your own itinerary and go at your own pace. He is knowledgable and fun to be with.
Aaron BlackUnited States
Catching up from Last trip, but again....Cesar is AMAZING. I will only use him when I come Cancun, Playa, and Tulum. I would give him 6 starts if it was available. - Always on Time - Great SUV nice and clean - Great Tour Guide (went to Coba on this trip) Cesar until next time my friend. Thank you for all the Sight Seeing locations and being my personal Tour Guide.
My wife and I arranged a tour with Cesar from Tulum to Chichen Itza in May 2019. Cesar was an excellent tour guide. He was on-time, informed, pleasant, friendly, and flexible. He drove safely and spoke English well. He was interesting to talk to, sharing stories about his experiences, asking about our interests, and engaging in discussions about about Mexican culture, customs, and current events. We would highly recommend Cesar if you are considering visiting some of Mexico's sites with a guide.
Cesar's tour was the very best part of our vacation! Most tours drop you off and let you wonder aimlessly. Cesar took us to Coba then got us bikes (so we didn't get bombarded by the bike taxis) and showed us things we would have missed on our own. We saw mayan bees and digital reconstructions of the shrines at Coba. Then we were the envy of everybody at the Cenote because Cesar not only loaned us snorkel equipment but led us around with a flashlight. Totally recommend Cesar as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank your comments, and for taking the time to share it, Saludos!!!
Kelly CarmichaelUnited States
Cesar was great! He was prompt, knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun! We visited the Ruins at Tulum which were fascinating! We had lunch at a great local place that he frequents, which was very good by the way! The Gran Cenote was one of the highlights of Cancun! My underwater camera came in very handy! Cesar knew all the ins and outs of the caves and it was not as cold as it sounded! (keep in mind I am from Seattle) Thanks again Cesar for the FANTASTIC Tour by Local!
Ron ElginUnited States
Cesar was AWESOME. Great conversation to and from our destination (Tulum) and a fabulous guide once there. Also, provided the nice little touches like water/coke, restaurant recommendations, snorkeling gear at cenote, under water flashlight, and of course his knowledge. Will definitely use again! Thanks Cesar!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for decide to do this tour despite the weather conditions, which actually after all was perfect, no sunburn issues, jajaja. Keep enjoying your holidays, you are a great couple, see you next time!!!
Aaron BlackUnited States
Cesar is hands down a great tour guide and a very nice person. I have used his tour service multiple time and its been outstanding. I alway look forwarding coming back and spending time with Cesar and having him show me around. He has a nice, very clean, plenty of room SUV that he can take you in. Cesar, thank you for all the great locations and always assisting me in my adventures. Again, OVERALL GREAT GUY and Guide!
Jay BettsUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Cesar. He was attuned to the dynamics of our group of 5 and made suggestions which were perfect. We spent a couple of hours at Chichen Itza, then lunch, shopping and a cenote swim in Valladolid. We spent extra time there but still made it to Ek Balam-which is not to be missed if you want to actually climb a pyramid, which was a lot of fun. Cesar was great at imparting the Mayan history and its differences to the Aztec and other cultures. Just a great day overall.
Rama VangipuramUnited States
Amazing custom tour by Caesar. Picked us up from the hotel and had plenty of water for us. Caesar was very knowledgeable of the Mayan history and knew what times to avoid large crowds. He took us to Ek Balam, followed by a local lunch at Vallolid, which was amazing, then to Chichen Itza. While at Chichen Itza he took us to show us the observatory and remaining color painting (that no one else seemed to be aware of). Definitely recommend him as his English is good and excellent conversation.
Neal DevinsUnited States
We could not have asked for more and actually gotten much more than we ever could've hoped for and having Cesar as our guide. He extended our trip more than an hour so that he could show us more sites and would've extended even more if we didn't have to get back to the hotel. Truly amazing. Very kind, very professional, very well informed. The vehicle was also top-notch and Cesar is a very good driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Neal, You are so kind, thank you very much for this comment, I´m glad we have covered all the things which was most importat to you, and specially made it back for your dinner, jajaja, Saludos!
Ernesto RodriguezUnited States
We had a great time with Cesar on our tour. Originally we also had a Tour of the Ruins in Tulum followed by Snorkleing with the Turtles but due to strong winds we had to change plans. Cesar presented a few ideas and we chose to visit Coba, it was awesome and we are glad we took his advice. 2 thumbs way up!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Ernesto!!! It was a pleasure to find this option convenient for you, we are flexible and our main goal is to create an excellent memories from this trip! See you next time!
Jessica MauroUnited States
Cesar was amazing! Not only was he prompt, he car was safe and clean, he had a cooler for water and drinks and accommodated a half day excursion. It was fun and we learned. Such a great time. I would HIGHLY recommend!!!!
Arleen TolleUnited States
Caesar was very flexible and open to our requests. He wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. It was a very pleasant we highly recommend him
Cesar was great, eveybody from our group was very content. We learned a lot. And he had to repeat everything twice in our two mini-buses. Very knowledgable and also fun! An excellent experience on the way to and at the amazing Ek Balam Mayan archaeological site. Gracias Cesar and a big hug from everybody!
Susan ShepardUnited States
Cesar provided an excellent tour and commentary. Prompt pick up excellent English in a comfortable car. He was extremely responsive to emails and worked the tour and sites we wanted - Ek Balam making sure we climbed each pyramid we wanted (and ensuring a safe guide up and down the steps) a stop to sample smoked meats, stops at a couple of unique churches and finally a lively local restaurant for lunch. He included stopping at a store before returning us to pick up essentials. I will hire him again!
great tour and great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Tania! saludos to everyone.
Charissa KovinUnited States
Cesar is an excellent guide. He arranged a driver and a very nice large van with A/C and a cooler of ice with water and soda to accommodate our party of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers). On the way to Chichen Itza he gave us a preliminary introduction to many of the sites we would see upon arrival to the ruins. After about 2 hours, we left the ruins and went to a delicious restaurant with buffet and a cenote, where the kids swam. It was a very enjoyable and informative day with Cesar!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments, I´m glad eeryone have enjoyed this day, see you next time! Saludos!
Deniz BolbolUnited States
We highly recommend Cesar as a tour guide. We can't say enough about how wonderful Cesar was as our guide. We rarely give ratings online (& I consider myself somewhat difficult to please). Cesar was informative, accommodating and delightful. Our tours of the sites were perfect and that is all thanks to Cesar.
Catherine DaviesUnited States
Great day with Cesar. He welcomed our input and adjusted the day accordingly. We said we wanted to learn and we did! His use of tablet to show where we were on map and diagrams of antiquities that had faded over the years was outstanding. Had we wanted him to be quiet, I believe he would have done so as well. Walked us through grocery store (our request), explaining local spices & veggies. Very sensitive to our needs and requests. Would hire again! Thank you, Cesar!
Robert SmithUnited States
We had a large group of 16 guys, ranging in age from 21-67. Cesar is an excellent guide...knowledgeable, pleasant, responsive to your needs and requests. Highly recommend!
Nona OKeeffeUnited States
Great day, great driver, great guide! Cesar was super knowledgeable about all things Mayan. We loved our day. Very considerate of our groups needs. Attentive and responsive. Good conversationalist and entertaining. Thank you!
Amy FrankUnited States
Best tour we have ever done!!
Beatrix MarkovitsUnited Kingdom
Cesar was the perfect tour guide for us. The trip to Holbox wasn't rushed, he took us to many beautiful, hidden places that you wouldn't see on any other tours, his knowledge and fun nature made the trip very enjoyable and he managed to capture our family altogether in some beautiful photos, taken on his camera. Cesar made a huge positive impact on our holiday and we can't imagine it without him! Would highly recommend him!
Jay BrismanUnited States
We wanted to do a private tour. To see the ruins and go to a few Cenote. Caesar was the perfect guide for us. We went at our own pace. He was not only informative but made you feel like you were touring with a good friend. We had a great time. The highlight of our trip to Tulum.
Robert StroudUnited States
Fantastic experience! Cesar was great! Knowledgeable about various theories concerning Mayan culture & configuration of Tulum. Provided interesting insights sparked with a sense of humor (aliens built them!). Oblivious that he enjoys guiding tours. Took us to an authentic street taqueria with GREAT food. While many visitors were in the cenotes, Cesar, guided us toward quieter areas. Considering this tour was personalized for us & was cheaper than the 'canned' group tours, we would HIGHLY recommend him.
Doug TisdellUnited States
Cesar was absolutely the best 5 stars all the way he definitely goes over and above an beyond his duties highly recommended.
Kathleen JohnsonUnited States
First time user. Wonderful experience. Cesar was very personable and responsive to all my pre tour questions. He was very knowledgeable about chichen Itza, Coba & cenotes. I especially appreciated his spot on lunch choice. One of the best meals of our trip! Highly recommend this guide.
We were very pleased to have Cesar as a guide. He was very personable, informative and accommodating. He met our Group of 12 family members at 7 and accompanied us until after 4. He clearly knows Chichen Itza very well but was willing to give us only as much detail as we wanted. I highly recommend Cesar as a guide in the area.
Michele SweetUnited States
Charles NisbetUnited States
Cesar Rivera is hands down the best tour guide in our travel experience. He took us early to the ruins of Tulum and then snorkling at the Grand Cenote--magnificent! He was extremely courteous, attentive, fun to be with and definitely LGBT friendly. As a gay couple we would highly recommend his services to our community and the general public as well. He took us to CoCo for lunch in Tulum which will remain one of the all time highlights of our travel experiences. A+++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you amigos! was a very pleasant experience touring with you, I´m glad that you get this nice memory from your visit to my country where you are welcome anytime, hope to see you soon!!!
Cesar’s service was amazing. He is very knowledgeable and a top notch tour guide all the way!! Our family had one of our best days together. Thank you Cesar!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I´m sorry, I forgot to save the answer, Thank you for your kind review, please say hi to your beautiful family, it was a pleasure to spend the day with all of you, see you soon!!!
Andrew JacobsUnited Kingdom
Cesar is affable and friendly We had a full and enjoyable day visiting Coba pyramid and cenotes (underground rivers) Our tour for 6 adults could have been improved if he projected his voice so companions sitting in 2nd & 3rd row of minivan could have heard his guiding whilst en route. Cesar & driver Oscar were very flexible and clearly want to please.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment which we will take as a feedback Mr Andrews, I apologize because we do have a microphone or I could have speak louder but I thought they were trying to sleep, if you decide to give us another chance I promise I will make it up for you.

We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Kirk PetersonChicago, IL, United States
Cesar was punctual, accommodating and flexible. At my request, he took me to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba, and Muyil, then ended the day relaxing on the Tulum beach with a few cocktails. He is friendly, conversant, and easy-going. It was a delightful day, thanks to Cesar. I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

Cesar was a great guide! He took his time and explained the history of monuments, my teenagers were fascinated. During our lunch break, he took us to a fantastic restaurant that had real Mexican food that was delicious. Thank you Cesar for a amazing day!
Timothy SeeUnited States
It was a worthwhile experience, to have your own private guide of the city of Cancun, Mexico. Cesar was knowledgeable and friendly, we felt secure in his driving. We learned so much about the culture and ways of the people of Mexico. We we very happy with this tour of Cancun.
Susan SchickUnited States
Cesar was a fun, knowledgeable and very helpful guide. Wouldn't hesitate to use him again, he went above and beyond in order to make our vacation day great. Thanks Cesar and hope to see you again!

Brian PlatzUnited States
Book with Cesar now, you won't regret it. Spending a day of vacation with someone you've never met carries a lot of risk. Cesar made me wish I had more days to spend with his expert assistance, enthusiasm and friendliness. My concerns were simple... like will he have a comfortable car? will it be clean? will we be rushed? will we be bored? We totally lucked out on all accounts. In addition he took care of all the small stuff I didn't think of but probably should have. Just perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Brian! I´m glad we succeed on your expectations, thank you for taking the "risk" with us, hope to see you again for another adventure!
Lisa GaratoniUnited States
This was far and away the best choice we could have made! We did not have to be in a large crowded group, we spent as much or little time as we wanted at every place and he even added in a couple extra stops. Would never do it any other way if we were doing it again! Thanks Cesar, see you soon! Xx, Joe and Lisa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Lisa, thank you very much for your review, I´m glad that you forget about the weather forecast and decide to go in this adventure, we have a great time and since you move fast we were able to do all those activities. Please say hi to Joe and hope to see you soon!!!
Karen WeinbergUnited States
Caesar was our tour guide and he did such a great job on our tour. He was knowledgeable, well prepared, and very accommodating. He has excellent people skills and his experience shows. We had a delightful day touring Muyil Sian Ka'an, the Mayan canals and Tulum. Thank you so much, Caesar!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Karen!!! it was a great day, no rain and lots of fun, jajaja. Say hi to the girls, you are all fantastic, see you in your next visit to Mexico, Saludos!
Juan CuellarUnited States
Cesar picked up my wife and I in Playa right on time. He immediately gave us an overview of our tour to the Mayan ruins at Tulum. The tour of the ruins was great as we arrived early and crowd was light. Cesar has great knowledge of the area and pointed out the various structures and what they were for. We got lots of great photos. We then went to Playa Paraiso and went out on a boat for snorkeling and then had a great lunch on the beach. The tour was well worth the money. We will tour with Cesar again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was nice to meeting you and your wife, thank you for your trust and for such a nice day, we will be waiting for you !
Fredrick SchrankUnited States
Great guide with knowledge of local customs and attractions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola, nice to read this, we appreciate it!
Eric WeinsteinUnited States
Cesar was cheerful, honest, energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and chill at the same time. We picked him up in Playa del Carmen, drove to Tulum, was mesmerized. We strolled to a delicious lunch and then off we went to a cent for the swim our lives. Then back to Playa to 5th ave for another stroll and gelato. Perfect day.
Cesar was a fantastic guide! He was easy to communicate with leading up to the tour and was ready and waiting for us on the day of our excursion. We found him very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. This tour made our trip to Mexico unforgettable. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Sharon!, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share this special day with you, I also enjoyed this adventure with you guys, hope to see you soon for more, jajaja
Mateja HarringtonUnited States
My daughter and I had the best time, Cesar was awesome, reconfirmed the night before, showed up on time.

Thank You Cesar!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mateja, thank you for taking the time for this, it was really nice to spend the day with you and Macy, you both are really easy going, hope to see you soon. Saludos!!!
Maleea MedenUnited States
Cesar was so great! From the beginning he was very responsive and communicative. He is very knowledgeable about the ruins and Mayan culture, and is very passionate and excited to share it. He was also very helpful in choosing best cenote experience. We had a custom day so it was very flexible but he helped us make the best decisions along the way. He was generous with his time and knowledge. The weather was not good but our day with Cesar was realy great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words Maleea, I´m glad you enjoyed this day despite the weather, I wish you and Matt enjoy your next days at Holbox, and anytime you are around this area just let me know and we will look for something else to show you.
Rebecca RimmerUnited Kingdom
Fantastic tour with Cesar, and colleague Oscar. My family and I were picked up bright and early and headed straight for Chichen Itza, where Oscar gave us a wonderful few hours history of the Mayan and Aztec sites. My brothers are teenagers and they felt really involved and never lost interest! Then we went to a BEAUTIFUL private cenote, we almost had it to ourselves, followed by a traditional Mayan lunch. Throughout the day Cesar guided us and gave us fascinating facts. Would highly recommend!! Thank you!
Rocio OrozcoUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rocio, hope to see you soon !
Mary Lockwood CrouchAustin, TX, United States
Cesar was the perfect guide to our day! We knew we wanted to go to Tulum but we were open to other adventures for the day, and Cesar did not disappoint! He took us to a cenote where my family loved swimming in the beautiful swimming hole. Miquel was a congenial driver for our big group. It was a perfect day! Muchas gracias!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mary! Thank you for your comments, and of course for giving us the opportunity to please you, you have a great family, please say hi to all of them and we will be waiting for the next adventure when you come back. Saludos!
Erin FoxUnited States
Cesar was amazing! Super knowledgeable and interesting. Our only regret was that we waited to the last minute and couldn't book him for a second tour while we were there. Well worth the cost (and it's quite competitive in that regard too)!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments Erin! For your next visit we can do more sightseeing, will be nice to see you again, saludos!!!
Todd VigilUnited States
Cesar was a fantastic guide who was very flexible with our itinerary and knows the area very well. We will use him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate your comments, was a pleasure to cover all your requests, hope to see you again soon!
Cesar was great, very knowledgable about the Mayan way of life and about life in Mexico in general. We really enjoyed spending a day with him exploring the area! Much to be recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: it was a great day, thank you for it! something different, playing basquet ball at a little mayan village, something unique. Hope to see you again!!
Joy HughesUnited States
Our guides Cesar & Benjamin were professional, informative, flexible. They thoughtfully suggested what options we might most enjoy- since this was our first visit to Mexico and we were interested in everything. The Tulum ruins, although small by historical standards were both beautiful & fascinating with their stories. Snorkeling in the Grand Cenote in Tullim was the highlight of our trip. The 4 of us had a delightful lunch together in Tulum. We would highly recommend both guides. We had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments Joy, it was a very nice experience to meet you, I hope we increase a little bit your interest about Mexico in general, we wish this trip was your first of many in my beautiful country who loves people like you, see you soon!!!
Deborah McCurdyUnited States
I am sorry it took me almost a year to rate Cesar. We had the best day of our trip with him. I am currently booking him for my next trip in May 2018. I can not say enough about the day we spent with Cesar!

John MarxUnited States
We had a wonderful time with Cesar - he was extremely knowledgeable, polite, and a lot of fun to spend the day with. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a personal guide in the Mayan Riviera. Great times - and thank-you to Cesar!
Dan HagenUnited States
Very friendly and flexible with our large family with kids aging from 8-30. Picked nice lunch spot and cenote on way back from Chichen Itza. Even found a piece of birthday cake for my wife and took videos of our kids jumping into cenote when my battery died.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: it was a pleasure!, thanks for "invite me" to spend your wife´s birthday with you and your family in my country, sharing some of the best things from Mayan culture. I love photo and video, and watching your family jumping into cenote I just couldn´t avoid taking some memories, Gracias!!!
Kelly BatchelorUnited Kingdom
Cesar took us out for a private day trip to Tulum, Coba, Dos Ojos Cenote and Akumul. The trip was amazing and Cesar went out of his way to make it special. Cesar is very passionate & knowledgeable. He came into all the archaeological sites with us & arranged for Oscar to give us really in depth & interesting tours. Cesar came swimming in the cenote & went snorkelling with us to show us the best spots and guide us through caves in the cenote. I would highly recommend Cesar and would definitely book again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, It was a pleasure and I enjoyed also the whole day with you amigos, I would love to see you in the future, Saludos!!!
Brad McKeanUnited States
Cesar is an outstanding guide! He helped us understand and plan before we got there based solely on our interests. Then he helped us adjust as we went through the day based on current circumstances. We snorkeled Dos Ojos(cenote) and with sea turtles(Akumal)-in both cases, his insights and connections made the event affordable (keeping us away from tourist traps) and timely (adjusting as we went). If you're headed to Playa Del Car and looking for a fun, affordable excursion, Cesar is your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola again!!! thank you for taking a few minutes to do this, I really appreciate it, for us is very important to know how was your experience, I hope you and your family enjoy as much as I did and hope to see you soon!!!
Lauren TrupovnieksUnited States
This was easily the best decision we made the whole trip. Cesar was incredibly flexible and allowed us to make adjustments to make sure we got to see everything we wanted to! He is attentive, kind, and easy to talk to! And, if anyone is concerned (as I was), you WILL ABSOLUTELY see turtles. They are everywhere! Highly Highly recommend this and the Cenotes tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, it was a pleasure to be with you in this adventure, looking forward for another, hopefully soon!
Tracey UlshaferUnited States
Cesar was a terrific guide. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, I hope to see you soon!!!
Marc EstafanousUnited States
Cesar was awesome! He completely customized a tour for us that would not have been available by anyone else and we got to see Chitchen Itza, Ek Balam, the Balankanchhe Caverns AND Tulum in one day with a local meal along the way. He is funny, considerate and fun. I thought the caverns were closed but he called them anyways and got us in even without enough people for them to run a tour. He is knowledgeable about the ruins and helped us figure out the best places to go inside. I highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola!! Thank you very much for your comments, we always do our best to get it done, I`m glad we could made it for you this time, I hope to see you soon again!!!
Sheri LankfordUnited States
Cesar was absolutely wonderful. He has such a fun personality. Even though he was not allowed into the Mayan ruin parks with us, he let us take our time and go at our own pace. He took us to a locals' taco shop for our breakfast, (I highly recommend!)and the breakfast tacos were amazing. He was professional but made the tour so much fun. He snorkeled with us at the cenote and used his flashlight to show us the underwater sites in the cave. I would definitely use him again. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments Sheri! I`m glad we have the chance to share with you all this activities, and will be a pleasure to assist you with any other tour in the future, now you know we can do anything you decide!!! Saludos!
Courtney BryantUnited States

John OlanoFederal Way, WASHINGTON, United States
Cesar was excellent. He was knowledgeable and informative and very enthusiastic about sharing his culture with visitors. My wife and I felt safe and his driver, Oscar, was a very good driver. We also appreciated their flexibility in planing the tour and making sure we we're comfortable and seeing everything we expected and things we didn't expect.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Olano!!! On behalf of Oscar and myself we appreciate your comments and we hope in the future to share more with you and your wife, will be here waiting for you!!!
John P.United States
We had a great day with Cesar visiting Chichen Itza, Coba and Ik Kil. He was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. He was also very flexible to make changes to our itinerary as the day progressed. We were so happy to have chosen to have Cesar provide us the tour rather than trying to see on our own. We highly recommend him and would certainly use him again as our guide the next time we visit Playa del Carmen/Cancun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John!!! Thank you for your comments, was a pleasure for me to make this trip as you were thinking, we just made it on time!!! i`m glad you have enjoyed and try new things, and you didn`t care about the weather, which afte all, I think was perfect, not to hot and not extrem humidity. Saludos, hope to see you soon!!!

Cesar was prompt and helpful with instructing us on modifying our last minute booking. Our tour was on 09April2015. We visited the Tulum ruins and Grand Cenotes.

We will definetly book with this company again!

Cesar was the best. Knowledgeable, friendly, good advice on where to go and what timeframes. He was attentive to our needs and beyond what you would get on a "tour" bus. Translated for us some. Clean van.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I´m glad you liked our services, and also hope you enjoyed as much as I did with you guys, please say hi to Tim, hope to see you soon!

A really wonderful, unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Cesar was personable, extremely knowledgable and passionate. We had a fulfilling day with our tour and lunch and cenote adventure all to ourselves and had a great time getting to know our guide. He even helped me plan a special birthday surprise for my partner. This man was made to be a guide for the public. What a day we had. I recommend to anyone even remotely interested.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you amigos! I really appreciate your words, and I hope to see you next year our sooner, have fun!!!

Cesar was knowledgable, fun, and willing to indulge our curiosity. We were able to see places and things we would not otherwise have experienced. He even gave my son some encouraging words on avoiding bad choices in school. He is worth so much more than the cost. I'm already planning a return trip in October/November, and he will be the first person I call to make plans for more adventures. Thank you Cesar!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Was a pleasure to spend this time with you guys, for your next visit, if you have more time, I will have more things for you to try, say hi to Harry, see you soon!

Cesar was punctual, wonderful with the kids and flexible. He met us at the prearranged location when we got off the ship at Cozumel. He had refreshments ready for us when we got off the ferry from Cozumel to Playa. When our credit card stopped working, he shared his phone hot-spot, and we cleared that up. He brought boogie boards and the kids loved being pulled around the Cenote. Though we could not do everything we wanted, he helped us make the best of the time we has. Highly Recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, please say hi to Adam (A.k.a.Bandido) and my good friend David, I also enjoyed it, next time stay longer so we can visit more attractions around Mayan Riviera, maybe Nataly and her mom wll join us for a swim. See you next time, Saludos!!!

Cesar was a wonderful tour guide. He was very flexible with our requests including pick-up and drop-off times. He arranged for an incredibly informative expert during the Tulum ruins part of our tour which was a nice added bonus. It was also great to enjoy a lunch with him in Tulum and learn a little more about his personal life. Highly recommended if you are looking for a day out and just want to go with the flow!

Our day with Cesar was the highlight of our trip.Prior to booking he was very informative in emails and I was very at ease with my decision.We are a family of 8 including 4 teens, a 6 year old and grandma.They all connected with Cesar personally throughout the day.He answered hundreds of questions and taught us so much about Mexico and the Riviera Maya.My wife melted when our shy 6 year old girl held his hand.He was awesome!!Thanks Cesar!Why be tied to a tour bus? Have a personal experience like we did!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Brad I also enjoyed too much that day, your family is great!!! you told me about it and it was fun to confirm it, please say hi to everyone!!! Looking forward to see you soon.
