An absolutely brilliant trip. Rosalia was wonderful and kept us interested at all times with her knowledge and descriptions. Perfect length tour for children. We toured with children aged 12,12 and 9. If we return to Mexico again on holiday we will definitely book another tour with Rosalia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank to all of you, kids were amaizing asking about mayans. Hope to see you next vacations.
Lynn McLeanLa Quinta, CA, United States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynn.
Jon RettmannUnited States
We had a great day with Rosalia. Her knowledge of Chichen Itza and Mayan society is excellent. My wife, 9 year old daughter, and I learned a lot and had a really enjoyable day. Her choice of an off the tourist route cenote was fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jon and family was a wonderful day without crowds.
Leslie G.United States
Rosalia was fantastic! My husband and I had a full day private tour of Ek' Balam, a nearby cenote, Temozon and Valladolid. We got to Ek' Balam early and had the place practically to ourselves. Roaslia explained many details about Mayan history and beliefs on the long drive from Akumal to Ek'Balam in addition to answering our multitude of questions throughout the day. She was lovely to spend the day with and we felt like we had a great taste of the region. We would absolutely book another tour with her!
Jon SokolUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and your parents.
Amy MarcussenUnited States
This tour of the Mayan Ruins in Tulum was well worth the money. Rosalia is knowledgeable and shares information in a conversational way that engages the participant. Next time I am in Playa del Carmen, I plan to book another tour with Rosalia. This is a great way to learn about the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amy, thank you for your comments, and not just those here, also the comments having lunch, to let me know that give me courage to continue like that. Hope to see you soon.
Frederick KnaufUnited States
The tour guide had excellent knowledge of the tour and was very accommodating. Our driver did a great job in the pouring rain
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Badly a rainy day for you, but was amazing the day with almost no people around.
Eleanor KennedyLondon, United Kingdom
Rosalia was the perfect tour guide for this day-long trip to Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. She is a formidable force in Mayan history and culture and I learned so much about a civilisation that I previously knew so little about! Thank you, Rosalia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eleanor than you to give me the chance to show you those two beautiful places in your short time here. Hope to see you again and visit more places by the west coast.
Christina KlenoticUnited States
Rosalia was a wonderful guide for Tulum and Akumal beach. She was prepared with bottles of water and ponchos in case we needed them. She was prompt for pick up. We enjoyed the info she shared during our walk throughout Tulum. She also was a helpful negotiator for snorkeling equipment and a guide to snorkel with the tortoises at Akumal. What a great experience! Thank you!
Deno BarrogaUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys, percfect pictures.
This was actually a 3 day guided tour with Rosalia. She managed to drive more than 1,000 Kmts to visit the archeological site of Calakmul in the Yucatan Peninsula. We (my spouse and I) went for the visit of one particular remote Maya site, and we finished visiting more sites and places in the Chenes region than ever imagined. I truly recommend Rosalia as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Magela and Lucas to have been felt in love not just about Mayans, but all my beautiful country because you make me apreciate, more than the normal, the place where I belong.
Connie IriarteUnited States
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!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you to share this spetial day with me climbing till the top of the temple. And It would be a pleasure to guide you in Chichenitza.
Matthew WagnerUnited States
Rosalia was a fantastic guide (we did the Private Tulum Express). Her English is perfect (important for our group) and her knowledge of the area was equally impressive. And she was very accommodating with our group which included 6 young children. I recommend eating at her choice of a "local" restaurant as it was deliciously authentic! Well worth the trip!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matt and everybody. The kids where a bless, I was inpresed they were so interested on the maya culture. Thank you for that day.
Carl MillsUnited States
Rosalia was a great guide and our group throughly enjoyed her very extensive knowledge of Chichen Itsa. I appreciated her also discussing and showing us pictures of Talum as we did not have the time availible to go and visit. When we come back to visit again we will use her for another tour. Our group clearly enjoyed the drinks she provided!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Carl, it was an amazing day and so fony with all the ladies. Hope to see you in the future and have the oportunity to show you Tulum.
Catherine Zurncapistrano beach, CA, United States
Great trip to Chichen Itza with Rosalia. We thoroughly enjoyed her knowledge of the Mayan civilizations and her ability to share that knowledge with us. All four of us would heartily recommend touring the ruins with Rosalia. She got us there early so we have many photos of the ruins with no one in them except occasionally one of us. Loved lunch at the "local" place and she helped us order traditional dishes to try out including the "green" drink--yum! Was worth the earlier morning wake up on vacation!
Alison ThomasUnited Kingdom
Rosalia was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and got us into the site nice and early before it became busy. She took everything at our pace and answered all our questions. We also did a trip to Tulum and a cenote, which was also excellent. I would highly recommend the cenote, which was amazing. There was one to walk around which was good for my husband who does not swim the other was a magical cave with just us swimming in crystal clear water; an experience not to missed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot Allison to trust on me to take these two tours. Hope to see you and your family soon.
Scott PearsonUnited Kingdom
One word - AMAZING. If you want some others, knowledgeable, patient, gracious, accommodating and the perfect guide for a group of ages between 31-79. Jose the driver was wonderful. And the final point she is WARM, greeted with a kiss and a hug and left with the same after 12 hours tending to our differing needs. Ek Balam and the cenote was the highlight and the best way to end the day. Thank you so much, we learnt so much and we will be in touch when we come back and we now love the underworld xx
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank to all the family Pearson in Canadá and UK. Hope to see you again and visit other places and swim again in the underworld.
Louis ThompsonUnited States
Rosalia is an incredible guide. She created a tailored tour to meet my requests with less than a week's notice. She is very well-versed in Mayan history, culture and language. I learned so much in the day I spent with her. If you really want to learn about the Maya and the Mayan Riviera, take a tour, any tour, with Rosalia.
Excellent tour. Picked up on time in a suitable vehicle. Great information when touring chichen itza and Vallidolid. Great restaurant for lunch. Overall everything we asked for .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, was a pleasure to be with you, show you the local fruits in the market and enjoy that great lunch. Thak you.
Martha DempseyUnited States
Rosalia provided us with an amazing tour of Tulum. She provided background on the Mayan culture and the architecture of the site which gave us much more perspective than we could have received on a large tour. She exceeded our expectations and will work with Rosalia and her team on our next visit to the area. She was simply outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martha and Paul, I was worry about weather, but we enjoyed even being wet. Thank you a lot and see you soon.
Erick WalkerUnited States
Our family recently toured with Rosalia G. through the Yucatan peninsula and we had a wonderful experience. Rosalia was very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable of local history and an expert guide in the area. She made the mayan ruins and history come alive, making sense of it all. We would highly recommend her services to those visiting the Yucatan and Playa Del Carmen area. We look forward to meeting with Rosalia again in a future trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Erick to give me the opportunity to show you Chichen Itza and that great cenote. Thank you all the family I also had a great and funny time with you.
David TysonBolton, LANCASHIRE, United Kingdom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :D
Had a blast. Was great to get to Coba ahead of the crouds. I actually have a picture with no one on the pyramid. It was great discussing the history with Rosalia and walking to our own pace instead of with a large group. My kids loved her and we all had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tony and all the kids, the were so nice and so interested in the history and I apreciated that.
Loved being able to go where and when we wanted by having our own private guide. Rosalia was top notch and my family all had a great time hearing about the area from her. We also all really liked the swim in the cenote after a hot day walking around Chichen Itza
Ron JablonskiSeattle, WA, United States
What a great day with Rosalia. She really knows her stuff about Maya history and culture. She got us see things from a different angle than the usual dates and dry facts. She let us dictate the pace of the day and we all agreed is was one of the best days we spent in the Yucatan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to all of you, Karen, Maureen, Colleen and you Ron, to gave me the opporunity to show you this beautiful place and also to admire "La Casa de los Venados" in Valladolid. I will continue recommending that place.
Ron JablonskiSeattle, WA, United States
Rosalia is a great guide and a very nice person. We learned so much from her. She did a super job snorkeling with us too, staying close to make sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot Ron, we didnt find a lot of turtles but the place and the day was amazing.
Rosalia was an excellent guide who took a lot of time explain everything we were seeing and was very patient with the kids...even going in and out of the Cenote TWICE so that my daughter was able to experience it. My kids all agreed that our day with Rosalia was the best day of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to all your family the day was amazing. The kids are wonderful and surprising for me that even the are so young where so interested in the maya culture.
Lynn PaulyUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I am glad that your kids enjoyed the zipeline and the cenote.
Philip CrossonUnited Kingdom
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!
Creighton HiteUnited States
Rosalia was an awesome tour guide! She promptly picked us up at the lobby and drove us to Tulum where she offered a very detailed description of the history of Tulum. We then drove to Akumal and snorkled with the sea turtles and ate a wonderful lunch at a beachside restaurant before returning to the resort. She has a fun personality and explained everything so our boys could enjoy and understand too. I highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: No, thank all of you, I was so happy to see how the boys enjoyed akumal, they are realy good swimers and was the perfect place to spend the day. See you soon.
Steve LuceroUnited States
Today me and my family were picked up by Rosalia for our tour to Tulum. She was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the Mayan history and many other subjects. Our tour included a trip to a cenote as well. We stopped by Dos Ojos Cenote but it was flooded from the recent heavy rains. She knew of another location nearby. It was amazing, she even joined us for zip lining over the cenotes! It was great, thank you very much Rosalia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve, thank you and I felt so happy seeing Tatiana and your wife so exited doing the zipelines. Than you to led me be part of that. Rosalia
Kevin McGovernUnited States
Rosalia and her driver were outstanding. She arrived at our hotel on time and we arrived at Coba early enough to be the first visitors of the day. She led us to places in the site that are rarely seen and her knowledge of the history was exceptional. We then went to the cenote for a swim and we were never rushed as you would with a big tour company. Rosalia is very accommodating she even made room so my wife could take an inner tube because she doesn't swim well. For a great experience try Rosalia : )
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kevin and Michelle thank you a lot for that day and see you next vacations to visit more places beautiful like those.
Chris HiggsUnited States
Having heard many "experts" talk about Chichen Itza, it was refreshing and exciting to spend several hours with Roslia and bask in her complete knowledge of the Mayan Culture. What she believes and her explanation of why, opened our eyes to the beauty of these amazing people! Don't waste your time on other tour guides.....she is the one you want!!!! We loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) thank all of you Chris and thank you to led me share my ideas and knowledge with you.
Jim StodghillUnited States
Rosalia picked us up in a very nice SUV that easily accommodated our family of 4. We had a very nice conversation on the hour long ride to Tulum. She provided a private tour of Tulum that was informative and fine tuned to interest both adults and children(10 and 15). My 10 year old had not been feeling well the previous day -so Rosalia made sure her tour did not tax his low energy this morning. I would highly recommend hiring Rosalia for any of the Tours that she provides. She is very knowledgeable. A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and all your family, badly that Jack didnt feel good, but it is graetfull to know that he is giong to talk about Tulum in his class. Hope to see you again!
Roy ChomkoUnited States
Rosa was great. Our family of four (12yr girl, 9yr boy) enjoyed the trip. Rosa shows a deep appreciation and understanding of the Mayan culture and the Coba site. Following Coba,we had a tasty lunch. A short drive from lunch took us to the highlight for the kids ... zip line and a swim in a very interesting cenote. Unfortunately, the monkeys decided they did not want to be seen on our tour. Getting started early helped to miss the crowds. We wrapped up our entire day in less than 9 hours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you everybody and let me tell you that I feel bad for not seeing the monkeys, but nature is like that. But I knoe that the kids really like the zipe line and that cenote that is amazing. Thank you again and hope to see you again.
We had a tour of Tulum and Cenotes. The first part of the tour was Tulum, Rosalia is very knowledgable and showed us the highligts of the archeological site. On the second part we visited a cenote. It was awesome, we snorkel in a natural cavern, a very beautiful and unique experience! We also had real mexican food in a local restaurant. Highly recommend Rosalia as a guide on any trips she offers. She was fantastic! Thanks Rosalia for an amazing and memorable experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lucas and Majala, and also is a pleasure to share my knowledge and those beautiful places with people like you that enjoy them and like them as me. Hope to see you again.
Jo Ann G.United States
Our day of adventure at the Cobá archaeological site and the Punta Laguna nature reserve was great! We biked around Mayan ruins, climbed a pyramid, hiked in a jungle, canoed across a quiet lagoon, rode a zip line, and swam in an underground cenote. Not bad for a couple of grandparents! Rosalia was a terrific guide, providing historical context & fascinating theories about the ancient Mayas. Our driver, Antonio, was great company, too, & we look forward to getting the photos he took inside the cenote.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jo Ann, once again so glad to be with you two and show you this beautiful place but also share with you all the beity of my country knowing that you visited Mexico City and other diferent places that also I love. Next days Anotnio is sending to you the pictures.
What a fantastic day - thank you Rosalia! Once again you took us away from the big crowds of tourists and gave us an authentic experience and a thought provoking glimpse into Mayan culture. We were so fortunate to have a guide who didn't sensationalize Mayan history. Thank you for suggesting we go to Punta Laguna (being blessed by the Shaman before our visit to the cenote was especially memorable). The friends who joined us this year loved the tour too - we talked about it all week. Yun butik!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahaha Jen, well What can I tell you, also was fantastic to know that you wanted to go again with me, really was a pleasure to be with your family but also with your friends too. You knoe that I love Mayan area and the alive culture, so it will be a bless if I can take you to other places in the future. Mixba (thank you)
Susan HunterUnited Kingdom
Rosalia was a wonderful guide today. She made us feel comfortable and explained everything to us, she was also very considerate. Her knowledge at the temple site was quite amazing. She gave us choice of what we would like to see and do, including some real Mexican food. A wonderful day, which we talked about cultures then and now , all so interesting .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susie and Jhon it was an amazing tour and I was really glad to share with you my knowledge about the area and must of all the taste of this beautiful country. Hope to see you soon.
We were a group of 29 ( we were in Mexico for a wedding ) and had a fabulous tour with Rosalia. We saw both Tulum and went to a cenote to swim. She insisted that we leave at 7:15 am . She was 100% right. We beat most of the crowds and the heat. Thank you from all of us for a great day!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbra for trusting me and enjoy those beautiful places.
James JankeUnited States
We enjoyed our day with Rosalia. She was on time at the pickup and had a new, comfortable car. She is a good driver and took us to Tulum via the back entrance - much less busy than the front entrance. She is knowledgeable about the Maya civilization and shared interesting information. Next we went to Azumal beach to snorkel with the turtles. Here, unfortunately, there were more people than the total of all turtles, fish, and other animals. I strongly recommend Rosalia for a tour. Azumal, less so.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Akumal is a beautiful place, the only thing is that turtles, fishes and the rest of the acuatic animal are in their natural habitat, most of the time is lucky to see them, that day we didnt see to much but finaly the bes thing is that is not an aquarium where animals are in a close place.
Exelent! We had a very good time with Rosalia. The tour was very instructive and fun at the same time. She was also very flexible with the kind of tour we liked, and with what we wanted to get to know and see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Maria and Raul, the most important thing is that you really enjoy the place and do what you want and ofcourse I love to show my country.
David OrtizUnited States
We've done the regular tour to Chichen Itza & realized that although informative it was unsatisfying. Rosalia was thorough in explaining the Mayan culture & the possible reasons why the Mayans did what they did. I highly recommend Rosalia if you wish to have an intimate understanding of the Mayas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot David and family to come. It was so glad to know that your kids were so interested in knowing more about mayas.
Diane WoliterUnited Kingdom
Rosalia was our guide recently. She took myself, and 3 others to Chichenitza. She was kind, caring and very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Please pass on my comments and thanks to her. 5/5
Jo Ann G.United States
Rosalia was a terrific host and guide, and my husband and I recommend her highly. She had a good knowledge of Mayan history, which made for a fascinating and enriching experience at Chichen Itza. She brought a driver with her named Antonio, which allowed her to spend the long drive to and from the site showing us photos from books and the internet to augment her history telling. After the tour, we had a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant not far from the site. The entire experience was A-plus!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jo Ann, just I can say that also for me was an amazing day sharing your experiences about your family and your childhood with your grandma. Also thank you for that wonderful day.
Benjamin KeithUnited States
Rosalia is an awesome guide, there is not enough space to express the experience my son and I had on the excursion with her. Incredible knowledge base as well as her local acumen made this a very educational experience. We learned so much about the ancient Mayan civilization as well as the current Mayan lifestyle. This was one ove the best guided tours we have ever taken, and Rosalia's enthusiasm for the topic made all the difference. Recommend tis amazing tour without any resevation at all... The Keiths
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thank you two a lot. Also for me was a wonderful day and I enjoyed a lot the oportunity to show you those beautiful places. See you soon.
We really wanted to see Chichen Itza, but my husband finds walking tiring and has hearing problems. We chose to go with Rosalia. It was WORTH it. Rosalia was sensitive to Douglas's needs. She was very knowledgeable and supplemented the tour with artist's images on her Ipad to show what the buildings we were seeing would have looked like. By picking us up early, we enjoyed the tour in the cooler hours and with fewer people. If you want an exceptional experience with a knowledgeable guide, choose Rosalia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot Sussan and Douglas, I am glad to know that it was a good experience for you. Hope to see you again.
Malcolm GrayRichmond, BC, Canada
Rosalia was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to have as a tour guide. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Malcolm, It was my pleasure to be with you and to share a lot of information and your experiences in other countries.
Timothy McCarragherUnited States
Rosalia was right on time, and absolutely delightful. She was extremely well prepared, and did a wonderful job! Hire her immediately. As skilled as she is, we were amazed we were able to book with her. Based on our great experience, we will be using this website again and again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tim and Will and I am glad to know that you will continue using this website and of course I hope to see you again and visit other place.
Great guide and tour. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Fer y Thom, Thank you a lot again. Hope the rest of your vacations where great too. See you soon. Obrigada.
Daniel MowreyUnited States
The tour was well organized and very informative. We did everything that was promised without rushing through anything. Rosalia was very prompt and enabled us to get to the major location, Coba, ahead of the major tour companies and thus kept us ahead of the crowds. Rosalia is a very delightful person and I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a trip that is informative and fun filled.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Daniel and family, I am glad to know that you like the day and enjoy everything. That day was wonderful, we were the only ones on the Coba temple and we so a lot of monkeys too.
Our family of 2 adults & 3 boys, 13,12,9, explored the Yucatan with Rosalia. She worked tirelessly to ensure we had a wonderful holiday and was very responsive to our needs. She engaged the boys with her explanations at Chichen Itza and Tulum and they loved scrambling around Uxmal and "Black Jaguar" climbing up to the top of the pyramids and seeing the world as Mayans saw it. We also swam in beautiful ceynotes, explored the cavern of Lotum and were delighted by the secret sweet waters of Bacalar.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I just can say that that tour was amazing for me, I also enjoy to travel and more when people like you are so interested in my country. Thank you to be my guests on those 6 days, your family is amazing and also I learned a lot. Hope to see you soon!
Lori HastingsUnited States
Rosalia was awesome! She picked us up at the hotel on time, in a nice "cool" vehicle and took us to the site. She recommended we leave no later than 7 a.m. so we could beat the Tour buses! We were leaving as bus loads of people were arriving. We missed all the crowds. She was also very helpful & knowledgeable, keeping my 9 year old interested. We would recommend her to anyone traveling in the Yucatan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lori and family, also thank you to he there at the time I recommended you, by now you now the reasons why and in that way everybody could enjoy that day. Hope to see you next vacations!
David GloverHarby, United Kingdom
Brilliant day with a lovely person. Very personable and easy to get on with. Good safe driver. Very knowledgable and brought Chichen Itza to life for our family; both boys said they enjoyed the day and were glad we did it - what more can be said they are 14 & 17 and it was a 2 1/2 hour drive to get there from PdC - a great day and one not to be missed worth every penny for a great personal service that included proper Mexican food at lunch - BRILIANT
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David and family, thank you for enjoying the day and most of all to give me the opportunity to show you this beautiful place that is full of charm. Hope to see you soon and go to Coba.
Rosalia was an amazing she knew so much about the history of and was very flexible and made the tour a very personal experience the only thing I would fault her on was her driving, in Australia it is illegal to drive and use her phone at the same time due to how unsafe it is so this was very different and a bit scary for us as she was sending messages on her phone whilst driving. As I said this may be acceptable and legal in Mexico it was just very unusual us and its illegal due how many deaths its caused
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments ladies I will take care of that.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Dear Chantelle, Thank you for your comments, your message was passed to Rosalia and her guide support manager and they are working on a solution to the issue you brought up. Regards, TBL Customer Support
Robert BorzilleriUnited States
We recently enjoyed a tour of Tulum by Rosalia G. We found her to be very knowledgable and easy to talk to. We also toured a cenote under her guidance. It was the highlight of our trip! We highly recommend Rosalia as a guide on any trips she offers. She was fantastic! Thanks Rosalia for an amazing and memorable experience. Bob and Kerry
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bob and Kerry, thank you to take the risk to visit that cenote ;) it was worth it, wasnt it? Take care.
Rosalia very knowledgeable and generous in sharing info not only about Chichen Itza but about broader issues in Maya culture and Mexico as well. We got to the best tour arriving at 8am to the ruins, plenty of time to visit the site with very clear and complete explnations. After the visit Rosalia tokk us to a small local restaurant where the fodd was excellent. My husband and I are very grateful to Rosalia and would book again with her anytime. 5 on 5 ,excellent guide very responsive to clients needs and
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Helene and Daniel, thank you to also share your experiences in China,it was a day full of knowledge. Merci et a bientot!
Hunter AmsbaughUnited States
Rosalia was wonderful. She was on time for our pick up at the Resort. 7:00am felt early but was well worth beating the crowds at Tulum. We had the place to ourselves and by the time the big tour busses arived we were enjoying great fish tacos at a small restaurant nearby. After lunch, the private cenotes she took us to were fun to explore. Swimming in their clear cool water was nice compared to the "too" warm resort pools and rough ocean waves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hunter and family, thank you to enjoy that cenotes, I know a little bit cold the water, but the second cenote was perfect for the kids. I am so glad to know tht you like the day.
Margaret Anne MyslinskyUnited States
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 :)
Johanna OswaldUnited States
Rosalia was a terrific guide. Prompt, accommodating and very knowledgeable. She made the trip worth it even though it was raining with her positive attitude and being well prepared. We had an amazing tour with her and would not hesitate to request her services again for another tour in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Johanna and Michael, Thank you so much, it was a beautiful day! See you soon here.
Stephanie MasekUnited States
Rosalia is a wonderful guide and came to pick us up in Cancun at 6 am in order to miss the big crowds at Tulum. I have been to other archeological sites in big tour groups, but I preferred a private tour as we could decide how much time we wanted to spend at certain locations. Rosalia is very knowledgeable and easy going. I'm so grateful to have spent half a day with her especially at the coolest cenote!! I would never have been able to go/find it on my own. We had an amazing time! Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stephanie, I am so glad to know that you and your friends really like the day, and must of all that beautiful cenote, thank you a lot!!!
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!
Robin SitverShort Hills, 07078, United States
Rosalia provided an excellent tour of Tulum for my group of 7 people with a wonderful stop at the beach afterwards. We described the kind of beach we wanted to go to and she found just the perfect place. We had a wonderful day! I highly recommend Rosalia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Robin, thanks to all your family. That beach was really nice and quiet, you have to come back.
Maeona M.United States
This was our second tour with Rosalia and we are grateful to have had her. I have commented on her tours in my other comments under Tulum. She is a terrific guide. I want to thank Rosalia for her calm decisiveness and assistance when my husband became ill at Chichen Itza. She had a call made for a park ambulance, was flexible in meeting our needs when we realized he wouldn't need hospitalization or a doctor and then drove us back to our hotel in Cancun. Thank so much, Rosalia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mae, thank you to take a second tour with me. Badly that we couldn´t visit Ek Balam, but net time you come we can go. I just hope Gil is better and any sickness to worry about.
Maeona M.United States
My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Rosalia. First she drove all the way to Cancun to pick us up at 6 a.m. to go to Tulum. Smartest decision ever as we left the site as the buses pulled in with all the tourists. She is clear as to what is known about the Mayans, what is speculation and unknown. We had an inexpensive and wonderful lunch in the market area just outside the archaeological site. The trip ended with a visit to cenotes - gorgeous places to swim and enjoy the birds. Lovely day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot to enjoy those beautiful places with me, especially the cenotes that are magic, and we where so lucky to admire the Mot Mot bird.
James VorisUnited States
Rosalia is incredibly knowledgeable about Mayan culture. She made our visit to Chichen Itza a memorable experience. Next time I'm in the Riviera Maya, I would not hesitate to book another tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jan and Jim it was my pleasure to be with you in these special vacations. Don't hesitate to contact me to go to the snorkel in the cenotes and the beautiful places I mentioned you.
Robert SellarsUnited States
Rosalia was a delightful guide with plenty of knowledge about Tulum. Enjoyed the trip/tour very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert, and it Washington a pleasure. I hope all your family has a great time here in paradise.

Rosalia was an absolute pleasure. Her knowledge of the Mayan history and culture was complete, and her delivery to us was exceptional. Took us to one of her favorite places to eat in Valladolid on the edge of a cenote. Ate out Mexican cuisine every day and night we were in Cancun, and the Cenote Zaci was more authentic than any of them. Good to the tummy too! Spend a day with Rosalia, and have the wonderfully personal and gratifying an experience as we did. Gracious Rosalia, and tours by locals. Dave&Lynn
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lynn and Dave, It is always a pleasure to share with you my passion about Mayas, and of course the good food of this land. Badly that day was too hot to shop, but I hope you found your magnet Dave.

Just as she did in Chichen Itza, Rosalia was thorough. She again knew the facts about the site, but this time she added in new ones that weren't related to history. She told about the wildlife, and showed you if you were lucky enough to have a run-in with one (We saw the Quetzal bird.). The marine life seemed to be her true passion. When we went snorkeling, she knew where the sea turtles would be, and where the best parts of the coral reef would be. Added bonus: she shared the places with the best tacos!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Those are the best times at any point in our lives when we let ourselves be amazed by anything, even if it is minimal, our senses maximized them. Thanks for enjoying those tacos, the landscape of tulum and go with such beautiful turtles in the ocean and birds in the sky.

Rosalia was a great tour guide. She knew the facts about the site and her country inside and out. She was punctual and made you feel like you were being guided by your best friend. She was very cosiderate and gave you as long as you need to stop, enjoy the view, and capture those precious moments.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ladies, was a great pleasure being with you and more to know that people as young as Victoria is really interested in Mayan culture and the ancient ones. Thank you a lot.

We were in Mexico for one week and I decided we could only afford the time to see one thing and that was Chichen Itza. I don't do mass tourism so I booked a private tour with Rosalia. I knew before we arrived in Mexico because of the good communication we having I had made the right choice. We were not disappointed Rosalia gave us the most amazing day to one of the wonders of the world. She was so informative and enthusiastic about the the Yucatan. We learned so much. Perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Family Barber, I had an amazing day with you, and I also learn a lot that day. Your decision on being the earliest possible in the place was the best, because the place was only for us and we could admire it without feeling it crowded. Thank you.
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
