Description

Welcome to Cancun’s GPS-enabled professionally-narrated walking tours!

Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn, fully-guided tour.

You’ll find three tours in one app - all highly entertaining, thoroughly researched and prepared by local guides.

Ek Balam
This tour highlights the best-preserved tomb of a Mayan king and brings Mayan culture, advance science, and religion to life. It will show you extremely well-preserved stucco facade of the Jaguar altar, the most fascinating view from the top of the pyramid and beautiful wall carvings & paintings of that time.

Chichen Itza
This tour brings Mayan culture, advance science, and religion to life. It will show you how a Mayan serpent comes down the pyramid on equinox days (a nice graphical video), how Mayans played the ball game with extremely heavy balls (a real game replay video), and how they collected skulls of the sacrificed people.

Tulum Ruins
This tour has exciting stories of Tulum’s rise to power, its significance as a port, the small but famous temple of frescoes, and its unique hurricane warning technology. The tour also brings Mayan culture and religion to life.

This app-based tour has significant benefits over other apps and over live guides:

Easy to use: Download the app on your own phone. Then download the tour(s) you’re interested in taking. Simply follow the GPS map & the routing line. It’s like Google Maps and a tour book combined in one! The tour takes you to every single stop; you won’t miss a thing and won’t get lost.

Fully automatic: Each point of interest along the tour has a narrated story, narrated directions, and helpful images, gifs or videos. As you walk along the path and approach a pin, it’s story will automatically pop up and start playing.

Fascinating stories: Engaging, accurate, and entertaining story about each point of interest. The stories are professionally narrated and prepared by local guides. Most stops also have additional stories that you can optionally choose to hear.

Freedom to travel: No scheduled tour timings, no crowded groups, and no rush to move along past stops that interest you. You have total freedom to skip ahead, linger, and take as many photos as you’d like.

Visualize what you cannot see: most stops have images, some have animated gifs from different centuries, seasons, or for interior rooms.

Third nice app in Cancún from this company

We used Chichen Itza and Tulum app from this company before. This is the third app we used. Like the other two, it is very nice and useful. We downloaded the app at the hotel and went over the stories the previous night. At the site, there is no cellular or WiFi. GPS worked fine and we could follow the line and listen to the stories.

Climbing the pyramid was a lot of fun. Half way to the top are the most interesting structures. All the way on the top has a great view. Coming down is harder. Try zig zag while coming down.

Since, we had the app, we did not spend $$ for a guide. It was a pleasant experience.

Really adds a lot to the experience

We used this app for touring both Ek Balam and the Tulum ruins. It added a lot to the experience, giving detailed and we'll narrated information, while not being overly verbose. The interface isn't the best, but it's functional and simple enough to understand.

Thanks for the review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your tour. In future updates, we’re aiming to add more exciting features (perhaps AR!) and a more beautiful interface. Thanks again!

Excellent guide

The GPS triggering is very useful - we got all the useful information just by walking over to the “pin” on the map. They give you a route to follow from one pin to the next. I would recommend this over the guide any day... a LOT of info
