Visiting Tulum: The benefits of Private Touring

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

With hidden underwater treasures, ancient archaeological sites and spectacular scenery, touring Tulum guarantees a unique and memorable experience. And yet finding someone who can offer you a truly personal experience and tailor their rhythm to your touring needs can make all the difference to your visit. In this guide, we run through the benefits of choosing a private Tulum tour.

Gaining the “inside” knowledge

One of the greatest benefits of private touring is the chance to learn the area’s hidden gems and local “secrets”.

Private tour guides will be able to share useful tips and unique insights tailored to your groups’ needs. From finding out the best cenotes to visit, which restaurants serve the most authentic cuisine and tips for avoiding the hustle and bustle of large crowds, there’s a wealth of knowledge you can acquire from your own private Tulum guide.

And don’t feel shy to ask them questions throughout your tour! It’s always worth taking advantage of their local knowledge and travelling experience to get the most out of your visit.

Time efficiency and increased flexibility

If you’ve participated in big group tours, then you have first-hand experience of how inflexible they can be. Picking up and dropping off other travellers on tour buses, and herding large groups from point A to point B can be very time-consuming. And making the most of your visit means managing your time efficiently.

Such inconveniences can be avoided with your own private Tulum tour guide, who will do their best to ensure you actually spend your time exploring the things you’re most interested in.

Immersing yourself in the local history and culture

From exquisite thousand-year-old sinkholes, to well-preserved ruins built by ancient civilisations, engaging and immersing yourself in the rich history and culture of Tulum is one of the true joys of touring this remarkable area.

That’s why our O2 Tulum tours are led by a private guide and local historian, so you can learn everything there is to know about this ancient city without the distraction and interruptions of a large group. From sharing ancient stories, translating local history and answering each of your individual questions, having a private guide can make all the difference in the learning experience!

Help keep you safe

One of the other advantages of private tours is the increased safety. Travelling – especially if you don’t know the area or the local language – can be overwhelming and getting lost or finding yourself in tricky waters (sometimes literally) can happen. Having an experienced guide with you who knows the lay of the land will help keep your tour running smoothly.

In the current climate, using a private tour company like O2 Tulum also means you don’t have the share your adventure with a large group, helping to minimise the risk during the on-going pandemic.
