"We loved everything about this tour! I thought [our guide] did a nice job of catering to us adults as well as the two children in our group. He was very knowledgeable and kind. I would not have wanted to go to Coba without [our guide] and all his information. The cenote was a highlight for all of us. What an amazing place! My younger son loved learning about making tortillas and wants us to make them here at home. Thank you for an amazing day!" [-after the Mayan Culture for Kids Tour]
