What a great day! Marcela's passion for educating us about Mayan culture was amazing. No question went unanswered and her relationships with some of the Mayans during the tour was extraordinary. Thank you Marcela for a Great day. Anyone traveling to Cancun would be wise to request Marcela for your tour needs.

Marcela C. is a great guide. She communicated early and often about our Birding tour and everything went off without a hitch. Marcela brought us to a private nature preserve where we met Luis our birding guide. We think he is part bird because he had the sharpest eyesight and could see and hear the birds well before we could. We were able to see and photograph 41 different species. After birding we had a lovely breakfast prepared by the ladies inside the preserve. A perfect end to a perfect morning!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Sumer good afternoon!! Thank you very much to enjoyed your birding experience as much as I did! It was my pleassure to share with you our amazing variety of beautiful colorful birds and how better than interacting with local mayan descenders as Luis ans Segunda the girl making home made tortillas!! Thank you for your kind review, I hope to see you again!! Have a blessing day!! Marcela P.s. I sent you the list of the species that we have seen!!

Date: Nov 21/18

Marcela was the perfect guide for our family: courteous, informative, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. We managed to fit a lot into one day. She and her driver had to wake up very early in the morning to drive down from Cancun to Tulum to get us at 8am. We visited Coba where Marcela helped us get a better understanding of the Maya culture. We then went to a couple of amazing Cenotes. Marcela adjusted our route on the fly to make it possible to swim with almost no one else around. We heartily recommend her

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Reza for your kind words, it was my pleassure to share this amazing adventure with you and your beautiful Family!! I hope you enjoy the wedding too!! Warm Regards, Marcela C.

Wow! Not wanting the typical "tour bus" experience, we found Marcella on this site and was hesitant because she had lots of experience but only a few reviews, but we liked her responsiveness and her suggestions so hired her for our family of 5. We NEVER once regretted our decision! Incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and friendly! I told her what we were looking to get out of an excursion and she made it happen-beautifully! I would not have changed a thing. Thank you, Marcella,for a great trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Don thank YOU very much for your kind words, it was my pleassure to understand exactly what do you want to do and how do you all want to do it and make it happen!! And thanks to the mother nature and my passion and service exceeds your expectations!! Thats is my goal!! Happy faces after our amazing day!! Thank you all for your trust and preference!! God bless you all!! Marcela P.s.thank you all to make it so special talking about each other!! big hug for Jorge, Paco, Penelope, Adrien and you :)

Marcela was outstanding. Her passion and knowledge was excellent. She was in communication prior to the tour, during the tour and after the tour. We requested a few things that were not standard, and she provided these without hesitation. I would highly recommend her to anyone travelling to Cancun as her enthusiasm for her work results in an excellent knowledgeable experience.

Marcela took my family of 6 on a wonderful personalized excursion to Chichenitza, on a swim in a cenote, and to a tequila factory. I hoped for a good guide for this all day trip & we were not disappointed! Marcela is one of those people who you just love to be around, she keeps the tour fun & everyone from my 65 yr old dad to 20 something sister loved Marcela. We still talk about her, she feels like family! She's professional, extremely knowledgeable & makes sure everyone is happy. Driver also excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mentha wow! I aprecciate your kind words and feelings about me. I do what I love! I am so happy to know how much you and your Family enjoyed our amazing day! I learn a lot from you and I love and admired the way you care and enjoy each other as a Family, the enthusiasm and joy that you show during our tour day is outstanding!! Keep enjoying life together the way you do and thank you for been so interested in our amazing ancesters, the Mayan people and the local people too. Love, Marcela
