We spent 4 days with Salvador. He picked us up at our hotel in Cancun and we left for four entire days in Yucatan. He took care of everything and we only had to enjoy the tour and the fantastic professionalism of our guide while visiting ruins, cenote, hacienda or even wildlife. Salvador is a very smart and educated man who can have deep conversation and even deeper knowledge on many subjects.
We could have never found someone more reliable, professional and passionate by his job.
The places we have been to were superbs, the hotels selected by Salvodore were luxurious but affordable and authentics.
After 4 days he drove us to our resort for the second part of our holidays.
We strongly recommend “Best Maya Tours” and Salvador as the guide to spend time with in Yucatan.


We recently took Best Maya Tour’s Private Yucatan Discovery Tour and it surpassed our expectations. The guide was excellent, striking the perfect balance between being informative and giving us personal space. The hotels were of good quality and conveniently located. We felt safe throughout the trip. Valladolid was our favorite city, while Merida impressed us with its size and history. Ek’ Balam, a less crowded site, allowed us to climb the buildings. The cenotes were a magical and refreshing experience. Highly recommend Best Maya Tours for an unforgettable Yucatan adventure.


This was an amazing experience and we loved every minute! Salvador is incredibly knowledgeable about the sites around the Yucatán and we learned so much about the different archeological sites and the Mayan culture. Each site and experience was beautiful and unique in its own way. We loved riding bikes in Coba, climbing Ek Balam, walking around the grounds of Uxmal and Chichen Itza, and swimming in a cenote! There were lots of other fun adventures tucked in like feeding iguanas at Tulum and visiting a hacienda and learning the history of chocolate! It was great to have evenings in Merida and Valladolid. We made lots of memories that we won’t soon forget! It was an incredible adventure!


Sono stati quattro giorni magnifici e bellissimi in compagnia di Salvador, siamo stati bene ed abbiamo visitato i posti unici descritti nel piano del tour. Salvador è stato molto disponibile nel raccontare la storia dei vari luoghi. Davvero un bellissimo tour, molto consigliato!


Abbiamo fatto questo tour in coppia ma è consigliato sicuramente anche per famiglie e bambini in quanto dispone di un comodo van.

Salvador conosce perfettamente i vari siti Maya che sono uno diverso dall’altro perciò vale la pena visitarli tutti.
Si può contare su di lui anche per esigenze personali non strettamente legate al tour mostrando sempre grande disponibilità.

Le accommodation (tutti hotel di alta fascia) che Salvador ci ha riservato sono state tutte di primo livello. Personalmente ci sono state sempre riservate junior suite.
Comodità, pulizia, cordialità trovate in hotel.
Oltre ciò quello che ha fatto la differenza sono state le posizioni centralissime degli hotel in modo che anche a tour finito, la sera, si possano comunque scoprire le varie città in autonomia e sicurezza.

Il tour può essere anche leggermente customizzato in base alle richieste e questo è stato fondamentale perché fosse tagliato in base alle nostre esigenze ed interessi. Noi lo abbiamo fatto su whatsapp prima della partenza.


Grazie Luca, tu e Isabella siete stati fantastici per mostrarvi e condividere un po’ della nostra cultura e dei nostri luoghi d’interesse.
