Totally unexpected and thrilling

We were unsure what to expect on this tour but were thrilled when Lorenzo our guide took us out and informed us of all that we saw in a way in which we could relate to and understand. It seemed that this was a better tour than that provided elsewhere as we were away longer and had the site pretty much to ourselves just a couple of spider monkeys for company. We stopped for fresh Pineapple on the way back which was a treat. Go with these guys and you will have a great time ! Thanks to Miguel's driving we felt very safe.

Great Day

With Rosa as our guide, and Habner as driver and water bottle supplier, our small group had an educational tour of the Chacchoben site. The sun was a bit hot, even for April, which helped us appreciate the air conditioning in the van.
We spent an ample amount of time exploring the ruins before making a short trip to visit a Mayan village where we made our own tortillas and then had a superb lunch with a tour of the garden.
One thing we really appreciated was the lack of additional sales push for upgrades or anything else. My wife and I would both reccomend this tour. You will not get this kind of attention on the large excursions.

fantastic tour and price

The onboard price was nearly 3 times booking through Native Choice. It was super easy to book and a confirmation email was sent with all the information including a simple map to the main office (very easy to walk to). All the staff was friendly and I'm sure were just as knowledgeable as our guide Patricio (Patrick). The ruins are amazing and worth the trip. I wish there were more stars to give!!

Marvelous Mayans

Native Choice is First Rate. Toured with Guide Patricio (Patric), and driver Hebner. Patricio's knowledge and his ability to share it is incredible. Besides showing and teaching us about the ruins he taught us about the ancient Mayan culture. He taught us about the Mayan calendars and showed us the Mayan number system in such a way that it was easy to understand. Patricio is an outstanding teacher.

Fantastic Tour!

This was a great way to see the area! We really enjoyed the tour to Chaccoben, the driver (Saul) and the Guide (Alondra and Rosa) were great and very knowledgable, answering lots of questions and providing a lot of detail about the areas we visited. The Seven Colors Lagoon was absolutely beautiful and the lunch was delicious! We will definitely come back for another tour with The Native Choice!

Fabulous Experience

I am so glad I took a chance with Native Choice. The tour was fabulous. I just wish we had enough of a stop to do the Mayan Experience! We hope to come back and do another tour some time. Enrique and Ivan were fabulous and were able to share information in a way that the kids enjoyed it as well as the adults. Thank you so much for a great excursion. The map directions were easy to follow and the walk was really nothing at all to Native Choice.

Dinner with Family

My family (party of 8 - all ages) loved the Mayan Experience tour. I had worried the tour of the ruins would be hot, but the walk through the lush landscape on a drizzly March morning was relaxing. I was excited to get to climb the steps and step back in time as Eric explained the history of the area. Alondra (?) our in bus tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and able to keep up with a smart alec guest who was trying to stump her with silly comments. The bus ride was comfortable and the bus was fairly new and in great condition. The food in the Mayan household was delicious and the women so friendly! We had a baby with us and all the staff worked to keep him entertained so that we could enjoy ourselves. Key things to remember: 1. Native Choice provides PLENTY of bottled water. 2. When they pass the pineapple town, ASK to stop and buy fruit. 3. Remember to take plenty of cash to buy the beautiful handiwork of the ladies at the Mayan home. 4. When looking for the Native Choice office, just keep walking. It is a little way out of the port, but the locals are happy to direct you to the Native Choice Office.
