Frequently Asked Questions
It is best to wear comfortable and cool clothes. Shorts and T-shirts are fine, but they should not be too loose or skimpy. I would suggest good walking shoes (not flip flops or sandals) to protect your feet. Tennis shoes are fine.

I wouldn’t hesitate to highly endorse Salvador – we will definitely tour with him again, he was awesome. And, we’re hard graders! His English is terrific and in depth knowledge is impressive. We are very grateful for the terrific experience we had.
Thank you Lisa and Sarah!
My mom and I had an awesome time with Salvador! It was a fun and laid back day, a private tour is definitely worth it as you can do things at your own pace, choose what you want to do and for how long. We learned so much about the history of Chichen Itza and the Mayans from Salvador, had a great lunch at the cenote, took pictures but chose not to swim, then strolled around the beautiful town of Valladolid. Definitely a great day and would love to do a tour with him again in the future!
