A perfect day! Ralf provides lots of options so that you can adjust the trip along the way to see what you want and spend the amount of time you want at each location. He is knowledgeable and personable and is clearly well-liked by all of the locals we encountered along the way. The driver, José, was an added bonus - helpful, informative, and funny. It was a great way to be introduced to the Yucatan, and it helped to clarify what we wanted to do for the remainder of our visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much William! It was a pleasure to show you some of my favorite places and people along the way to Uxmal. Enjoy the rest of your trip! Ralf

This was one of the most awesome 1 day tours we have ever had, we loved all the stops we made on the way to Uxmal, the information we received about Merida & the sounding area and all the different local foods we got to try. Ralf Hollmann is an excellent guide and we had an amazing & very memorable trip. Thank you Ralf.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Gregory! It was a pleasure to have such wonderful guests with open hearts and minds! Come visit again anytime!!

Tour: #259554, Casual Fun Private Cooking Class PLUS Uxmal Mayan Ruins - 6 PPL (custom tour), Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico    view tour
Date: Nov 4/17

Rolf was more of an organizer than a guide. We lost time at the beginning when the shuttle bus left us off at the wrong place. We appreciated the extra local snacks he bought for us. Very good guide at Uxmal, but would have liked more time. He moved along and gave history when group was scattered taking pictures. Cooking class did not work out due to lack of enough time, but substitute dinner was ok.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I agree, the time really put a dent in the day, unfortunately, limiting the possibility of a cooking class. Glad to hear you thought the guide at Uxmal was good. As mentioned in the tour description I always hire a professional at archeological sites. Thanks Sondra

Enjoyed my day out with Ralf - full day itinerary (tailor-made) matched my interests. Ralf is engaging, friendly and knows the people and area around Merida well, having lived there for many years.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Ralf was amazing. Ralf is very professional and really takes care of you and even spoils you. We were able to get a sense of the culture from Ralf who has lived here for 30 years. I will be using Tours by Locals with the next time I come here. I also love the fact they pick you up from where you are staying drop you back. Great Tour !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Fazeeda! It really was a pleasure to have such wonderful, receptive and fun guests to show some of the sights and sites. Keep in touch and we'll see you again, perhaps in the frozen north!
