The ancient Mayan sites is fantastic

We had a wonderful trip in Mexico. The ancient Mayan sites is fantastic. The travel guide is very good. The hotels were good except Cancun. I don’t care for this hotel facility, but it is not too bad let our kids have this kind of hotel experience.

Thanks it was a really great trip!

The trip was amazing and we had a great time. We particularly loved the hotel and the whole of Guatemala. We also loved the springs resort and spa, and Pelican Eyes. La Tortuga was fine and quite cute rooms a bit small though. All the guides were fantastic and no worries with any of them all transfers went very well. Thanks it was a really great trip!

The archaeological and architectural and natural sights were fabulous

I would like to thank you so much for organising this holiday for us. The archaeological and architectural and natural sights were fabulous and we saw some really interesting things that like a chicken being sacrificed in one of the churches!!! While we were on holiday we needed to call the emergency number a few times and we found everyone extremely helpful and would like to thank those who helped us. All the hotels in the old centres of the towns were fabulous and interesting and had lots of character and we loved the hotel that you found for us in Tulum.
