    A really good trip for my first time in Mexico. We had a great guide, and the visits were sufficiently varied to give a good overview of Mexico City and the Yucatan peninsula.

    Let me start this by saying I knew Mexico was going to be a lot of fun, but I didn't expect it to blow me away like it did on this past trip. I just wanted to get away from the cold weather and napping on a beach at an all-inclusive did not appeal to me... Show more

    • What is the age range?

      The minimum age requirement for this tour is 15 years old, which means that children under 15 years of age are not eligible to join this tour. There is no maximum age limit for this tour, and those above a certain age are just be required to complete a Self-Assessment form. Intrepid believes it is all about shared attitude, not age.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Will the hotels have air-conditioning?

      For this tour the accommodation is 2-3 star therefore they cannot guarantee that all hotels will have air conditioning. It is more than likely that all hotels will have nets on the windows.

    • Is the accomodation based on twin share rooms?

      Yes, this price is based on a twin share accommodation where you will be paired with a traveller of the same gender throughout the trip. If you would like your own room then you will incur a single supplement fee.
