Our guide was on time very courteous and knowledgeable. She listened and respected our wishes and was very patient. The driver was outstanding. My husband wants her to lead our next tour to Chichenitza!!! We've used tours by locals in Europe and we have been very happy with our tour guides!!!

Our first trip to Mexico included a bespoke trip to Chichen Itza, then to Ek Balam followed by a swim in the nearest cenote. We left from Akumal at 06.00 and our first stop took approx. 1.5 hours to avoid the heat and tourist crowds which is good advice. We got so much from Rosalia on the history of the Mayan people, their culture and what the current interpretation of the evidence left by them - having a commentary on what you are seeing is vital if you want to learn what it all means. Well worth it!

Rosalia G gave us much more than we expected. The tour to El Balam wwas perfect. We learned much about the culture both Mayan and Mexican. Rosalia gave us much history about the location and it was much better than some of the more commercial tours to some of the other ruins. The lunch was authenic and perfect. Rosalia is the perfect tour guide. The costs may seem a little higher but the personalized attention is worth every cent. Rosalia's English was perfect as was her pace for the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Margaret, Sherrie and Helena, you did my day too, it was so nice to meet people like you, with that energy, with that good humor and that happiness. Ladies, see you in your next vacations here :)
My husband, teenage son and I took a fascinating tour of Ek Balam on February 17, 2013 with Rosalia. It couldn't have been better, we learned so much from Rosalia about the Ek Balam site and about past and present Mayan culture. Having an excellent guide like Rosalia gave meaning to the visit. She's very professional, easy going and generous. She encouraged our questions and we could tell she really enjoyed giving the tour. We were so lucky to have such a great guide! Sama, Rosalia! Hope to see you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jennifer and all the family, thank you to be so interested in my culture, I enjoyed the day too and the interesting conversation on the way going and back. See you here!
Rosalia was waiting for us when we disembarked from the ferry. She had a cooler packed with all the necessities for travelling all day to an outdoor site. Rosalia is a competent driver who is very familiar with the area that she is touring, and knows her material really well. Her English is exceptionally good, and we had no problem understanding her. Rosalia is a very easy-going and pleasant guide to have on an excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathleen and friends, I hope I had covered all your concerns you may had and had covered the necessary information for you. I also had a wonderful day with you 4. Hope to see you again. And have a good travel back to Canada
