We've traveled extensively and done many tours in many countries but the tours we did with Eric were two of the best. We did two while we were in Riviera Maya: swimming with the whale sharks and Chichen Itza. We would highly recommend both.

With Eric's personalized service, you really get to enjoy all of your time. There is no long pick-up, drop-off period like the big tours have. No waiting for that one couple that always manages to be late and holds everyone back. And if you happen to be the people running late, you don't need to worry because Eric is there for you. It is your vacation and so if you want to spend a few more minutes at a place, Eric encourages you to do so.

Whale Shark Tour: This day was amazing, and ranks up there as one of the best days we've ever experienced. Swimming with these amazing animals in their natural habitat was beyond mind-blowing. Eric arranges everything for you and accompanies you on the boat so you feel secure knowing that everything is taken care of.

Chichen Itza: I concur with the other reviewers. This trip was just perfect. Not only do you beat the crowds, have a fantastic tour at Chichen, swim in a secluded cenote and visit little towns, but you have Eric there with you to watch your things and provide you with a complete history of the region. His passion and enthusiasm for this region is contagious!

Eric provides a fantastic service at an affordable price. It was a remarkable experience!

Just returned from Puerto Morelos and one of the highlights of our family's vacation was the private tour to Chichen Itza which Eric (owner of Ecab Explorer's) did for us. Instead of repeating all the wonderful comments about Eric (which are all true!!) and the tour (perfect!) I wanted to share some of the aspects of the tour which are so unique with Eric.

First, as you will see from Eric's website he offers many tours which are similar to other tours you may see, but for all of them he tries to add his own personal twist. This is evident with his Chichen Itza tour where instead of just the standard tour of the ruins and a visit to a crowded Cenote, Eric has customized his tour by adding a trip to a local church in a small villiage (no one else offers this) and a visit to a out of the way Cenote for a swim as long as you want (when we were there we saw no other tourists). To this twist, Eric then adds his vast knowledge of the area which he uses to provide so much background and historical information as you drive around that you almost feel like a expert on the area at the end of the trip.

What really makes this tour work so well though is that Eric really gives you one on one attention. This starts with the fact that he actually has a driver so that he can concentrate on being a tour guide. When you get to Chichen Itza, Eric then hired a wonderful guide named Ruben who takes 2 hours to go over every aspect of the Mayan culture and history as you explore the ruins.

My boyfriend and I just returned from a week visit to Puerto Morelos, MX. One of the highlights of our trip was the excursion we took with Eric from Ecab Explorer to Tulum and Akumal Bay. Eric is extremely knowledgeable about the area and gives a great background of the Mayan culture before you arrive at Tulum. The groups Eric takes are very small which helps to add to the experience. Tulum was fantastic.
It's very hot, so make sure you bring water in with you. Eric had a cooler with cold water to hand out before entering the ruins. The views are really amazing, and you can imagine what it would have looked like when the Mayans lived there. Eric allows you to explore on your own, which is really nice. It's to hot to sand around and listen to a guide in my opinion. After the ruins we drove a short distance to a beautiful white sand beach. We boarded a boat and rode in front of the ruins to experience the view the Mayans would have seen. After getting back to shore we headed for lunch at a little restaurant a short distance down the road. The food was really good! I had the fish and my boyfriend had the chicken. They were both excellent. After lunch we headed to Akumal Bay to snorkle with the sea turtles. This bay is protected and the sea turtles stay there to feed year round. It was unbelieveable. We didn't have to swin out far to see our first turtle. They were everywhere just feeding on the grass at the bottom of the bay. After that we headed back to our hotel.

This excursion is perfect for just about anyone. We left our hotel in Puerto Morelos at 7:30 a.m. and got back to the hotel by 5:00 that evening. Eric is probably the best guide we've had at any excursion we've taken. He really knows his stuff! I would highly recommend if you're in the area to use Ecab Explorer. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

I found Ecab Explorer through Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I did. We booked the Tulum/Akumal tour for myself, husband and 10 year old son. Our van driver was Carlos and Eric was our guide. Eric is French and he's lived in Mexico for over 20 years but his English was excellent.

During the trip to Tulum, Eric talked about the things we would be seeing. He was also able to answer all of our questions that had nothing to do with Tulum. We learned so much about animals, plants and Mexican culture!

Tulum itself was amazing. After Tulum, Eric took us to the beach where we boarded a small fishing boat to see Tulum from the sea. That was so cool to see Tulum from that angle and learn how it was used to guide ships.

After the boat ride, we then went to an open air restaurant where we had the most amazing lunch with Eric and Carlos. It was not fancy food, but it was authentic and fresh. The best meal we had in Mexico!

The snorkeling tour in Akumal didn't go so well, but that wasn't Eric's fault. Our son had a panic attack during snorkeling so we didn't actually get to see any turtles.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience. The best part was that it wasn't a large group of people on the tour - just our family, Eric and Carlos.

I will definitely book a trip with Eric again and highly recommend him.

I traveled to the Cancun area with my wife, two kids(3 and 11mo.) and in-laws April 3-10 and booked a private tour with Eric at Ecab Expolorer to see Coba, a cenote, lunch at a Mayan household and hike through the jungle to see spider monkeys in the wild. It was the highlight of our trip. Eric knows close to everything about the area and on the drive he narrates as we go, pointing out landmarks, telling you the history of the area. Very informative. This is a private tour, with 8 people at the most on it. Our tour included the six of us and another couple. Eric and driver Carlos were very accommodating for our children, who did a very good job. You spend about an hour and a half at the ruins with a guide for about a half hour, and then have about an hour to explore yourself and hike the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan. You then go to one of the many cenotes in the Yucatan which is a natural underground pool. Amazing, small hole in the ground with stairs, into this huge cave, crystal clear water, amazing. You then go to a families home in the village of Coba where they serve you an authentic Mayan lunch.

A very unique experience, this family lives in hut just like they would have thousands of years ago with little modern amenities. Next you go to Laguna Punta for a hike in the jungle for spider monkeys. It took a while, but we finally saw some monkeys. Very worth while.

We couldn't have been happier with our day, it's a long one, our's was 12 hours, but very fulfillin
