Great day for a family
We loved this tour! My husband and I have done something similar but this was our first time bringing our kids. They are ages 12, 16 and 18. Dulce and Pasquell were our helpers for the day. They were amazing! We all loved the sea turtles! That part was incredible. Then we went to a cenote and I wasn’t sure if my kids would enjoy that part but they did! The lunch was awesome too. I would highly recommend this! Thank you so much for a great day!

Fun time in Tulum!
Nov 2020 • Friends
Great tour. They picked us up from the Airbnb we were at on time. We had a fun time at the ruins. Swimming with turtles was so awesome. Saw some stingrays too. Relaxing and snorkeling by the cenote was also a great experience. Our guide Dulce did an amazing job and was super friendly! All around great time!

Unforgettable experience
Aug 2020
From the moment we booked our tour, Claire was on top of communications and very responsive if I had questions. The snorkeling with turtles (and some fish and stingrays) was amazing, and my 6-year-old had such a good time. Swimming in a cenote is something you can't miss if you visit this region. It was truly magical. While there are still some landmarks closed due to the Coronavirus, there were still plenty of private tour options for us to choose from. We will definitely be back and booking another tour!

Amazing tour that will always be remembered
First of all I have to say thank you to Chris, Pascual, and Claire who worked so hard to make our tours happen during this difficult time. We wanted to do this tour, but did not think it would happen. The Turtle Experience in Akumal opened the day before due to the pandemic and they made it happen for us. They were early to pick us up, we arrived and were virtually the only tourists there. We saw at least ten turtles as well as barracuda and other marine life. After we swam in a beautiful lagoon where we saw numerous ocean fish as well as many birds. We had a wonderful lunch, which Chris (our tour guide) joined us. These are wonderful people who are so passionate and just fun to be with. If you want an amazing unforgettable tour contact them and you will not be disappointed.

This tour saved our trip!
Jan 2020
This was the best thing we did on our trip to Mexico. We originally booked because my youngest son got very sick on our trip to Hawaii and had been unable to swim with sea turtles, which was his dream. In order to ensure we could see turtles, we decided to book a private tour as we thought we would have a better chance to see them and it was one of the sole purposes of coming to Mexico.

What a great day! Easy pick up at a reasonable time. Pascual was a great driver while Juan was so incredibly knowledgeable about everything in Mexico from the politics to the history and he was a candid and lovely guide. Our group included my two teenaged boys, myself and my parents. My mom has some trouble getting around and needs a walker. This tour was perfect for the variable age ranges and the mobility challenges. We were able to choose what to do and how fast to do it. We went slowly swimming and saw a few turtles, we took our time at the cenote, especially as access was difficult, and the lunch was quiet and authentic, ordering off the menu rather than the buffet style seen on busy bus tours.

We took a bus tour the following day to Chichen Itza with cancun-sightseeing.com that was absolutely awful and nearly ruined our trip because of ignorant and unintelligible guides, huge crowds and the inability of our family to sit together on the hours long bus tour because there were not enough seats. Thankfully we had talked with Juan about this planned bus tour while we were on our Akumal tour. If not for his information about the history and current archaeological findings of the area and his advice to seek out the observatory in the old section of the ruins, it would have been a bust. As it was, he managed to lead us to a wonderful little park at the back of the attraction away from the crowds without even being there to guide us.

Cannot say enough about this company and their great staff. If you aren’t sure whether to book or not, just do it. The big bus tours, although cheaper, are terrible. I would have paid double the price to have them take us on our tour of Chichen Itza if I could have. It has certainly influenced how I plan to book excursions in the future.

Thanks for saving our trip to Mexico! You guys are so great. Keep doing what you do!

Great experience
Dec 2019
My husband and I only do private tour these days, for exactly the reasons and experience that Absolute Adventure delivered: personal attention from the tour guide and no waiting for other people so that you maximize the time you spend on your outing. Manuel was our guide and Rodrigo was our driver. Both were friendly and professional. There was traffic on the morning that we booked our tour and the company contacted me to let me know that our driver might be late. Their van arrived only 10 minutes later than expected, but I appreciated the heads up and the attention to punctuality. We got to see a few turtles, thanks to the help of our guide. Note that in addition to Manuel, we had a local swim guide, which is a bonus. The Cenote that Manual recommended was Tak Be Ha and as he anticipated, we were the only visitors there. Lunch near the Cenote was good. Overall, I highly recommend this company.

Amazing!!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had the most amazing time with our tour guide Manuel and driver Rodrigo from the moment they picked us up at the hotel we knew it was going to be a good day. Arriving early at Akumal beach to snorkel with the turtles with no-one else anywhere near was one of the best experiences and not to mention the beauty and peacefulness of the cenote. If you are thinking about booking a trip with Absolute Adventure do it now you will not be disappointed!!!

High standard as usual with this company

Absolute Adventure delivers consistently high quality tours. I know because I've used them 4 times now!
Hector was our super fun guide with excellent English on our trip to swim with the turtles and Dos Ojos cenote. His cries of 'vamanos, familia!', have become a family catch-phrase! There are snacks, water and sodas in the van so you are well looked after!

The turtles were being rather shy on this day, although we did see one or two. Remember these turtles are totally in the wild so it's up to them if they make an appearance.
We arrived at Dos Ojos ahead of the crowds and had the unique experience of entering the 'bat cave', with our flash lights, through stalactites, on our own. I think it is worth the money just for this experience. You don't get to do this anywhere else. If you do as part of a large group, for me, it totally ruins the magic.

We then ate lunch at a Mayan restuarant in the jungle -again, quiet with lovely, fresh, local food and a wee tequila shot to finish off. We particularl'y enjoyed chatting with Hector, who was great company and looked after us so well.

The beauty of Absolute Adventure private tours is you can go entirely at your own pace and the thoughtful, kind guides take your wishes into consideration and makes it a very personalised experience. This makes for a most memorable day. Communication with the office is efficient and friendly, so any questions you may have are answered swiftly.
I highly recommend them!

Private tour Akumal beach turtle swim and cenote
Great day out all round and good value for money with a great guide ( sorry forgot his name). We did get to see turtles at Akumal beach and swam by a couple taking some decent pictures we also had a one on one guide there and she knew where to go not sure we would have seen what we did without her ( thanks Jessica). Cenote was great it was off the beaten track and not busy which made even better and a good chance for pictures with out people in the way. We then stopped off for lunch at a local place down the road and sampled some home cooked Mexican food that was lovely. In all a good trip and would recommend this especially as your on a one to one basis and no crowds.
