See what I wrote today in Booking.com, which will be published in some days.
Calakmul and services offered by Ka'an Expedition was such a great experience, I would recommand anyone going around to enjoy it as well!
the guide was nice and interesting, the site and the animals were wonderful, I loved it
Our guide was phenomenal, educated, knowledgeable and funny. The lunch was delicious. Stopping to see the baby crocodiles was an unbelievable experience. It was a great price for everything that was included.
We had a fantastic day visiting the ancient Mayan city of Calakmul. Luis is a very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The views from the top of Structure 2 are absolutely breathtaking! The trip was definitely worth it. I highly recommend booking this tour with Ka'an Expeditions!
Nous avons passé une excellente journée avec Luis qui nous fait découvrir le site de Calakmul. Quel bonheur de découvrir ce site sans horde de touristes ! Une journée que n'oublierons pas ! Merci Luis pour ces moment partagés avec vous.
Firstly , Calakmul is absolutely worth visiting . It is not the most accessible ; a 7h ride from Playa for us but the region has amazing ruins, which one can see , climb and feel their magnificence . We booked with Kaan expeditions as they have good reviews. In xpujil, we were warmly welcomed by Luis , our guide , who spoke perfect English . He is very knowledgeable and funny , quick to point out various wild life such as turkeys, birds , crocodiles along the way , their role in the jungle biosphere , as well as the legends and myths of the Mayans. Highly recommend Kaan expeditions and Luis
The guide was really awesome. He answered all our questions so we learned a lot.
Very professional service. Good value for money. Would definitely recommend this company!
I did the Calakmul tour in March,2017. From the booking process, through the tour itself, Ka'an Expeditions provided great service. And when you consider what is included with the tour, it's great value, too. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a convenient and reasonably priced way to visit Calakmul. Our guide Luis was one of the best parts of the tour. He's knowledgeable, professional and just a nice guy - someone you'd enjoy spending time with.
Amazing ruins, outstanding and knowledgeable guide. Guide draws comparison to other nearby sites which help understand the bigger picture. Calakmul is a must. Bucket list item for me!
Muchas gracias para todo estaba un día estupendo
Beautiful place to be; motivated young team excellent implementing an ecological concept. We espeacially enjoyed the fresh prepared breakfast! Thanks soo much!
Very professional and well organized tours, highly recommended
It will be fine if the tour start more early. The weather is a little to hot for appreciate all stuff.
This was a wonderful expedition. I am a solo traveler and Edith in the office did a great job helping me find a tour I could join during my available dates. The guide, Luis, was very knowledgeable about the site, its history, and the nature that surrounded it. Thanks for offering such a wonderful service to a difficult-to-get-to site.
The tour guide was very competent. The lunch snd snack were very good. It was an fascinating trip.
That was amazing ! Thanks you.
Great tour. Luis was awesome - full of interesting history, patient yet got us to the bats with impeccable timing. Overall, it was the highlight of our vacation.
Luis is very accommodating, friendly and knowledgable on everthing inside the biosphere and calakmul ruins. He was very detailed in the history, architecture and functions of each strucuture. He also knows about all the trees, plants and animals along the way. It was a very interesting trip, even for someone like me, who had almost no knowledge of the Mayan hisotry and was not interested in history in general. Now I'm going to go dig deeper myself. Definitely one of the best ruin trip we had! Highly recommended!
Luis was a great guide – very knowledgable and enthusiastic, and also a nice guy. The ruins were incredible, it felt really special to be able to walk among them and learn all about their history, especially with so little other tourists around. I won't forget this trip!
Very well organised, the guide was very knowledgeable about both the history and the nature in the reserve. It was just the right amount of time for walking around. The bat cave was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you very much to Eziekel and Nico!
El tour brindado por Kaan Expeditions estuvo muy bueno. El transporte, la explicación y atención en general fue de primera.
overall OK.but you wrote to me you would pick me up at 7 30 and the ghjide arrived (so he had been told) at 9 am. so hardly time to see anything but Calakmul. And I hjad layed for more. Other wise the guide fine, and the tour fine
Luis was a great Tour Guide who gave us detailed and informative background information about the calakmul area! We also got the opportunity to see many animals which would not have been possible without him as an excellent guide! We really had a great time.

Our guide, Luis, was excellent, courteous and polite. He made us change into suitable clothing to protect us. He speaks very good English which made our trip more enjoyable. We saw a decent number of wild animals as we were driving and coming back as well as during Calakmul walk. The calakmul ruins were amazing. The bat cave add-on was also an awesome experience.
Ka an expeditions is the first web site to appear when you do a research on Google. Plus, your website is very attractive. Definitly a great experience, one of the most unforgettable of our trip. Thanks again to Luis & all the team!
I joined the 1-day tour to Calamkul on 8/16. Everything was so beautiful. The guide gave us good explanations. I'm really satisfied about these. We walked about 3 hours in the ruins. Unfortunatly, it was too short to see all.
