If you are interested in learning more about the old Hacienda's and the agave craft the first part of the tour is great. You can see all the machines work and learn about the craft. It's followed by a trip by horse carriage over rails...More

Our day tour in the hacienda was incredible. We requested a private tour because we were a group of 9 and we included everything, hacienda, cenote, lunch, horse back riding and massage. It was totally worth every penny. The cenote is small compared to others...More

This working hacienda/museum is a must see. A bit pricy, but worth every peso. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was in Spanish and English. The trip to the cenote at the end of the tour was fun. Mule driven train.

This tour exceeds expectations. Informative, beautiful with a swim in a Cenote and a good lunch. One learns all about the manufacture a d sale of rope, Andy see the machines in action.
