THE NATURAL & ARCHEOLOGICAL WONDERS OF CHIAPAS AND YUCATAN

A rich tour in the heart of Mexico, to discover the glorious and renowned Mayan archaeological sites located in Chiapas, Campeche and Yucatan Peninsula. During this itinerary, you also have the chance to admire well-preserved towns belonging to the colonial epoch. On one hand, they are characterized by churches with severe lines and simple dwellings painted with white plaster, on the other by cathedrals adorned by sinuous motives typical of the Baroque style. Finally, in these 8 days, you can also enjoy the natural beauties and the wonderful landscapes that this country of Central America offers.

The sites are so differents and amazing. Isla Mujeres was the best place to slow down. We like cities of Valadolid, Campeche and Merida. Sisal and Izamal are very very charming too.

Roberta Bassani , Italy

Volevo ringraziare tutte le persone che hanno organizzato e ci hanno accompagnato in questo giro del Messico per due settimane. Grazie a Gabriele con il quale ho impostato il tour, grazie a Giulia e Roberto che sono stati bravissimi e molto preparati specialmente la Giulia che merita tantissimi complimenti per la sua capacità di raccontare le storie avvenute durante i Maya. Veramente brava come guida e come persona. Al nostro caro Daniel che ci ha portato a conoscere e capire il popolo Maya e quello ' vero' messicano. Ci ha fatto provare il tipico cibo messicano fatto in casa. Poi volevo complimentarmi con le altre persone che hanno tenuto monitorato i nostri passaggi. Ci avete chiamato per sentire come procedeva e come dovevamo comportarci l'indomani. Ovviamente tutte persone che abitano in Messico e che lavorano con i turisti. Poi e' arrivata Sofia che con il suo sorriso ci ha proposto un mini tour nelle grotte del rio secreto. Magnifico direi!!! Dovrei aver detto tutto e nominato tutti quindi credo sia abbastanza per farvi capire che è stato tutto perfetto. Read more

Andy Fograscher, United Kingdom

Thanks for assisting us on our Mexican Adventure. We really had a great experience. Our initial driver, Roberto and Guide Hector were very helpful and attentive. They met or exceeded our expectations every step of the way. We especially appreciated how they made sure we were successfully checked in to our hotels before leaving us for our free time. They also did an excellent job of communicating the next steps and where and when we should meet them. Our guides in Mexico City, were equally attentive for the day we spent with them. Thanks for all of your help. We will keep you in mind for future trips. Read more
