Tulum is an incredible destination for everyone (families included) but on our recent trip my husband and I headed to that magical destination with 2 other couples sans munchkins and we were ready to have FUN! So, I started researching Tulum tours and quickly came across Adventure Tour Center. With 5-stars and hundreds of reviews, I knew they were worth my attention.
Tulum Tours with Adventure Tour Center
I knew from the emails back and forth with the Tulum tour company’s owner Jeff that service was going to be phenomenal and boy was I right. As soon as you walk in the chic surf shop you are greeted with the happiest of hellos by employees who you can tell LOVE their work. Customer service is HUGE when it comes to tours. One bad tour guide can ruin an incredible experience, trust me, I’ve been there. That is why I was so pleased to find enthusiastic (and experienced) guides, who were eager and excited to get our group out and onto the tour.
Our tour guide for the day was Janis, a super fit aerial acrobat who’s zest for life was palpable. She was so energetic and full of information, and I loved how she encouraged all of us to go one step further whether that meant ziplining upside down or jumping off the side of the cliff into the crystal clear cenote she was there to give us that extra burst of encouragement we all needed. And, she did it with a smile.
Adventure Tour Center offer several Tulum Tours but for this trip, we chose the Mayan Jungle Experience. The tour offers 3 ziplines running across a freshwater lagoon, canoeing, cenote cliff jumping, a tour through the self-sustaining Mayan town and a lovely authentic Mayan lunch.
This tour is perfect for families as all of the activities would have been perfect for school-aged kids. The ziplines, canoes, canoes and cenotes were kept in pristine condition and the guides were very helpful with the beginners in our group. *I also loved that for those of us who were more experienced they offered suggestions to keep the thrill level up like ziplining upside down with no hands 😉
There are many Tulum tours to choose from but one thing Adventure Tour Center has over their competition is the location of this specific tour. You are taken to the jungle of Tankah, a privately owned piece of land, located just 10 minutes outside of Tulum. What makes Tankah special is the fact that it is also a self-sustained community of over 42 Mayan families who live and work on the land.
The Mayans keep this property impeccably clean and to protect the privacy of the Mayan families they also control the number of tourists allowed on the property. So, you get this incredible intimate experience in a setting that looks almost too beautiful to be real.
Authentic homemade Mayan meal with hand-pounded corn tortillas. Need I say more…
I can’t say enough WONDERFUL things about Jeff and his Tulum tours. In fact, when we arrived back to the dive shop, several of our friends booked a second scuba diving tour for the next day. That speaks volumes!! So, if you find yourself in the gorgeous destination of Tulum make sure to book a tour with our friends at Adventure Tour Center. Don’t forget to tell them Global Munchkins sent ya!
