We loved our experience with Native Choice. Our guide was Ivan and he had so many amazing stories to share and was so knowledgeable with the Maya Ruins, it kept everyone in our group very interested and wanting to hear more. I don't think you would get a better experience with anyone else doing this tour. Would definitely recommend doing the Maya Ruins tour with Native Choice if you plan on it.

We had a great tour right from the start. The check-in process was painless and we had a comfortable wait for our tour to begin.
The van was comfortable and driven well by Edgar, our driver. Our tour guide, Erick, was very knowledgeable and very willing to answer all our questions. It was obvious he is passionate about his heritage. He was friendly and gracious to all the guests.

A great adventure for anyone interested in an educational tour by experts with a genuine love for the history and culture of the ruins.
We were amazed, spellbound, even transported through time as the past was revealed in story and stone. David, Ivan & Pedro, thanks for such an entertaining and special day!
Pineapple will never taste so sweet as the day we shared it with you!

My family & 2 other families were so lucky to have RAQUEL as our tour guide. She is friendly, extremely knowledgeable and great with kids.
We so thoroughly enjoyed our time at the ruins and afterward for lunch (wonderful!). When we told the kids what we were doing, several of them said "we don't want to learn anything. this is vacation". RAQUEL made the learning so interesting that they all enjoyed their day.
