Private Excursion to Tulum: Mayan Ruins Tulum

The amazing Mayan ruins of Tulum are situated right next to the ocean!! The original name of the once important Maya site was “Zama”, which means “sunrise”. Tulum was at its height between 1200 and 1400 AD and was built as a trade port. High walls protected three sides of the city, the east side was sheltered by the ocean. Explore the archeological site of Tulum and learn more about the Mayan culture, the meaning of religion and their well developed knowledge.

  1. Elba L.

    We were in Cozumel in November and had booked a day trip to Tulum and then snorkeling in the cenotes with Leon Tours.
    It was a great day, perfectly organized by Leon Tours.
    The day started very early but it was worth it.
    We were picked up on time near the cruise terminal. There we first got something to drink and a delicious sandwich for breakfast.
    Then we went by cab to the ferry. with the ferry over and there we were already expected again by our guide.
    We continued in the minivan to Tulum. There we had an interesting guided tour through the Maja site with a lot of interesting information.
    We continued our trip to a cenote park. Again we were expected and guided through 4 different cenotes. Sometimes swimming, sometimes snorkeling, sometimes walking and then again with our heads under water ? .
    It was super great to explore these caves.
    Then we went back to the port and by ferry back to Cozumel, where we were already expected again by Birgit. Back to the cruise terminal by cab.
    That’s what I call service.
    A GREAT day ! ! !
    Many thanks to Birgit and her team

  2. Daniel D.

    We had a nice day out with Victor from Leon tours, in advance a Whatsapp group was created, so we came together to the meeting point. We were already expected and driven by cab to the ferry terminal. After just 40 min we were on the mainland, where we continued with Victor(German-speaking) from Mexico. Tulum was very beautiful, but totally overrun by tourists. Swimming in the cenotes was a great experience. Afterwards we went to the beach where we could eat something and relax. Before returning to the port we had a tequila. A nice trip , everything worked out perfectly and the contact in advance was great. If we come to Mexico again, we will gladly book again with Leon tours.

  3. David K.

    I did 3 tours , beginning of July 2021, with Leon Tours.
    Tulum, snorkeling and cenote,
    swimming with whale sharks and
    Chichen Itza with cenote.
    All tours in German, which was very important to me.
    I am still enthusiastic.
    Small or private groups and very well informed guide.
    I can only recommend Leon Tours.

  4. Dejan K.

    Super excursion! Fun, informative and nice guide. Excursion made as part of a cruise. Highly recommended! Next time again!

  5. Dagmar D.

    We also spent a day in Conzumel as part of our cruise and visited Tulum, the cenotes and the beach.
    We were picked up at the meeting point, brought to the ferry with which we crossed to Playa del Carmen. There we were met by our guide Kathi.
    The day was great and eventful. The group was small, we were 8 people + child, everything was well organized and we can recommend LeonTours without reservation!

  6. Damaris S.

    As part of our AIDA cruise in the Caribbean, we booked the tour “Tulum, Cenotes and Beach” for our stop in Cozumel. Already the communication in advance worked smoothly by mail and WhatsApp. In Cozumel we were received by Birgit, who then sent us well supplied with water and sandwiches on the ferry to Playa del Carmen. There we met our guide Victor, who told us with a lot of humor interesting facts about his home country. Everything was perfectly organized. At the three stops in Tulum, at the cenotes and at the beach, we each had enough time to look around a bit or to relax. The next day we even got sent photos via WhatsApp that Victor had taken during the trip. An all-around perfect day, thumbs up ?

  7. Eduardo M.

    We were on December 6, 2019 as a group of six with Leon Tours Cozumel on the road. Advice (via internet or WhatsApp), planning and execution of the excursion to Tulum and bathing in a cenote from Cozumel were optimal. We had a really great day as cruisers, thanks to Birgit and Sonja. The pickup from and return to the cruise port were on time, timely and personal (including packed lunch and hibiscus tea)! We are very grateful to Birgit and can recommend Leon Tours with absolute conviction. We also plan to travel to other destinations in Yucatan through Leon Tours.

  8. Edward D.

    Have spent a super day with all the info you can have. Very familiar, it can not be better. Always gladly again ?
    Many thanks to Birgit and her team
