We had an amazing tour with Cesar! He picked us up at our resort right at 8am and we went to Coba, where we rode bikes and climbed to the top of an amazing Mayan temple. Cesar told us all about the ruins we saw. We then headed to Tulum for lunch. After lunch we went to Gran Cenote where Cesar guided us all around with snorkel gear he provided. It was such an amazing experience. Then we went to Tulum ruins where Cesar again told us all about the ruins. Would definitely book a tour with him again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Chris!! thank you for your comments, I´m glad we had time and energy to explore all these sites, we will be waiting for you for the next trip, in the meantime keep having fun!!!

We had a great day with Cesar! He gave us the option of the size of vehicle which was great as we had two big guys in our group of four, so the van worked for us. His knowledge of the history of the Tulum ruins was beyond impressive. We would have missed so much had he not been there. Cesar took us to a great place for lunch and then on to the cenotes, all our choice. He never looked at the clock and was fun and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Cesar and highly recommend him for any tour.

Cesar is a delight. He is well informed, considerate and made our experience richer because of his presence. Oscar, our driver also added to our experience.

Cesar was a excellent tour guide! He took us swming in cenotes, and all through Tulum. We had lunch at Paradise beach club before heading back to our condo. He gave us tons of information we will be able to use on the rest of our Vacation and customized everything for us. He could not have done a better job on this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marc, i´m glad that info was helpful for you, if you need anything else when visit us again please let me know, I will update you, jajaja

Çesar is a wonderful guide. He was very helpful in planning our tour and making adjustments to suit my needs because I am 70 years old and visually impaired. I would recommend Cesar and Tours by Locals wanting an enjoyable and unforgettable visit to Mayan archaeological sites.

Cesar was a wonderful tour guide! He offered suggestions on which cenotes would be good for our group. We went to Cenote Azul & Grand Cenote. He even toured us through the Grand Cenote, showing us small caves and spots with turtles. He took us to a great local place in Tulum to eat that was delicious. The van was spacious and had air conditioning. He even brought soda and water for us. I would highly recommend having Cesar as a private guide for the day!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
