Enter the Tulum ruins through one of five doorways in the massive limestone wall.

Arrived in port on our ship. We had just amount of time to get off ship and we hurried and met our guide Alexis who waited for us at described meeting spot. Some other guest were little late and he was kind enough to wait for them. Everything was taken care of boat ferry, air conditioned new van to destination and just 12 others. All comfortable with water, soft drinks included. Very nice scenic trip to Tulum. Guides were informative, attentive and made every effort to keep with ship departure. Trip was perfect amount of time. After we were treated to a nice lunch then had time for a nice beach break in Mahual! I would definitely recommend this excursion.

We really wanted to see the Ruins, and weren’t sure if this was going to work. It did!! We took a taxi to the Sparrow Pier and met our guide. He had all the tickets for the ferry rides. Then we asked to a van and drove to Tulum. Everything ran like clockwork! They even had much needed cold bottled water and subway for lunch! We got back in plenty of time to take a taxi back to our ship and board. The only thing we were confused about was the time difference, we followed the “ship time” on Carnival and that worked with the time in Cozumel. So no issues. The ferry’s are very nice as was our van ride.

The day was hot, hot, hot, but our guide Jorge was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He added so much to the tour that we would not have gotten on our own. You could tell he was passionate about the history behind the ruins. The saddest part of the day was that the beach was closed, but the view was spectacular anyway. Side note: Jorge will jokingly warn you to stay away from the fertility temple, but it isn't a joke. Just trust me...

This opportunity, had the entire experience mapped out with time frames that left us with ample time to experience the shopping in Cozumel. The confirmation said to meet a representative under a statue of the swallows. My group gets there, we walk up to the statue and there is a guy holding a clipboard with my name on it! The ferry was a bit rough that day but was comfortable inside and made it there quickly. We met an air conditioned bus and headed to the Ruins. Once there, we had a great guide who spoke perfect English and really went into great detail about not only the ruins, but the society and class structure that once inhabited it. Once he was done he told us how to get back to our bus. We had lunch waiting for us on the bus for the ride back to the pier. I like Subway, so lunch was easy to eat and familiar! I took plenty of pictures and will remember our experience using this excursion service as very easy and "Turn Key" meaning, once we showed up, they took care of us.
The Mayan Ruins of Tulum tour was a great experience, especially that we have never seen Ruins before. The group meeting location was easy to find, even though we had to take a taxi to the meeting area. The Ruins are by the sea, with lots of beautiful view and very historic.
