What a wonderful day!!! My sister in-law and I went to Tulum last year on a bus tour and were very disappointed in the amount of time given to explore. Benjamin gave us a personalized tour and was VERY knowledgeable about the history, architecture, and native plants in the area. We learned so much. We were able to decide where and when we were going. Benjamin took us to "where the locals go" and Sulema (Our driver, and please forgive me if I got the name incorrect.) was amazing. 5 stars isn't enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks u Julie u girls were an amazing experience for a tour guide. I will be here waiting for next time.

Benjamin was a knowledgeable and very personable guide. His in depth knowledge of everything Mayan and Aztec was impressive and made our tour unbelievably wonderful. It was fantastic to have a conversation with someone so passionate about history and culture. We wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with Benjamin and will recommend him to everyone!! Julio, our driver, was also fantastic and safely transported us to Coba and Tulum and back to our resort. You will not be disappointed in this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jim. Thank you very much I feel gratified with your words about my services, thank you very much I will be waiting for another time. Regards ...I m still thinking about the book do .....

Benjamin was terrific! Full of knowledge, multimedia examples of what we'd be looking at on our tour and willing to answer any question we threw his direction. He was very attentive to adults and kids, alike. We really enjoyed spending our day with him! We highly recommend using Benjamin on your next tour in the Yucatan! (Our driver, Alexa, was very sweet, as well!)

Beyond Fantastic, so BOOK YOUR TOUR. We love education and discussion on our custom trip to Chichen Iza and Coba. Benjamin paid close attention to my elderly parent and we are able to enjoy the site and find them locations to Siesta :). Additionally, our driver on the private van as a pleasant addition - plenty of room and very clean. It was an amazing trip on my 50th Birthday. All 6 of us completely recommend him for your Yucatan tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jenneffer. is glad to hear from you I have been bussy but I will never forget your birthday, husband, parents and friends I glad that you write you feed back GRACIAS I will be here around if u need some thing else let me know. Regards to all of you. Ben

Benjamin took my wife and I on a Tulum tour while we were in the are on honeymoon. We could not have been happier with our choice! Ben was knowledgeable, friendly and made this tour our best experience in Mexico. We visited the Tulum ruins, the beach town area, dos ojos cenote and had a wonderful lunch at a restaurant on the beach in Akumal. All around a fantastic day with Ben. Would recommend 100/100!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Joe Thank you so much for your comments I really aprecciate your words ...u never know ...I would love some day to go to was a pleasure to be part of your time in your MAGNIFICENT moment.

Benjamin was an incredible tour guide. He was quite knowledgeable about Tulum, the history and surrounding area. Suggest you take his recommendation and leave early to beat the crowds. After the Tulum tour, we had a fantastic visit to a Cenote (can't remember which one) and a wonderful ocean side meal at a local restaurant. Between all these visits, we had plenty of "free" time to check local markets, do some of our own exploring. If you're reading this, do not hesitate to book any tour with Ben!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words my friend Andy you know that u and the guys have a friend here in playa !!! see u some were some how around the world.

2019/12/19 Day trip to Coba and Cenote Swimming with Benjamin was simply amazing. He knows a lot about Mayan history and culture and is also a great story-teller. You will see those places with completely different eyes! He went above and beyond to make us feel not as tourists but as friends he showed around. I highly recommend Benjamin as a tour guide, as a story teller and as a great compadre.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias muchas gracias por tus palabras Michael Oberreiter. Vielen Dank und herzlich willkommen in Mexiko

From start to finish our tour was fantastic!!! Benjamin was very knowledgeable about tulum and the surrounding area. We were picked up, at our hotel, in a nice air conditioned van and our great day began. Benjamin took us to a local restaurant for lunch. It was the best meal we had on our entire Cancun trip. We enjoyed Benjamin so much that we had him join us for lunch. If we could we would give our experience 10 stars!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Johnel. Thank you so much for your comments. I like what you said any time just let me know when are coming back, say hi to the gang ( Janet,Sergio, Linda and Dan) It was a pleasure to share with you time of this life...seuu guys...
