Tulum offers plenty of options for those who prefer the comforts of guided tours and enjoy the company of fellow tourists. An organized tour could be much more convenient if you only have a small number of days in Tulum and prefer to see few different places on one trip. There are a number of tour operators and dive shops in town that offer different adventures.
You can book your excursion online or through one of the street vendors or your hotel’s concierge. However, both the concierges and the street vendors are usually just resellers. And very often, in their list of priorities sales commissions come before the idea of making sure that you get the best experience. It is always good to do some research about the actual company/guide running the tour before signing up. To be sure there are no hidden additional costs and charges, try to get as many details as possible. Often the “good cheap deals” are not exactly the best option.
To make things easier for you we made а list of trusted businesses. We will maintain the list updated to represent honestly the level of the services provided by the companies that are mentioned here.
Send us a message if you are looking for a specialized service or a private tour. We will gladly give you recommendations and ideas. We can also easily book your chosen tour or excursion.
