Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Cancun!

Say hello to paradise! Arrive at Cancun airport and enjoy a transfer to your all-inclusive resort overlooking the Caribbean Sea. After settling in, take a stroll through the grounds and enjoy your first Mexican meal. Fresh ceviche and margaritas, anyone?

Transfer to Cancun hotel

Day 2: Cancun

Today you will head out on a full-day tour of the UNESCO-certified Tulum ruins. Located on a cliff facing the Caribbean Sea, this is one of the most photogenic places in all of Mexico!

Full-day tour to the archaeological site of Tulum

Learn about the culture, history and customs of the Mayas with the Tulum Tour, the only Mayan archaeological zone located overlooking the sea. The excursion is divided in two stages: first you will be guided by a bilingual guide, with extensive knowledge about the Mayan civilization, by the different structures and buildings of this beautiful place that offer beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea.

Later, explore the archaeological site of Tulum or Zamá (its ancient Mayan name) on your own, visit the Temple of Frescos with its blue and gray paintings and El Castillo with its incredible views where you can take spectacular photos.

Day 3: Cancun

Put on your bathing suit and lather on sunscreen because today you're heading to Xel-Ha Park on the Riviera Maya!  At this all-inclusive aquatic park, snorkel and see hundreds of colorful fish and marine species that inhabit its cove and cenotes.

Full-day tour to Xel-Ha

Get ready for endless fun with a wide variety of activities at Xel-Ha Park. Walk trails and discover the secrets of nature; enjoy a moment of total peace on a hammock; ride a bicycle through the jungle or have fun on different zip-lines!

Everyone will be able to take a break at any of the four restaurants and eat as many times as you like, from snacks to a buffet with exquisite national and international dishes plus exotic drinks. Fall in love with Xel-Ha, a paradise that makes an unforgettable day with family or friends.

Day 4: Cancun

Today is yours to spend at leisure in Cancun! After a hearty breakfast at your resort, consider visiting the Maya Museum, which holds one of Yucatan's most important collections of Maya artifacts. Besides a museum, there is an archaeological site worth exploring called San Miguelito on the same grounds.

For an authentic feel of Mexican culture, visit Mercado 23, an open-air market that's the oldest in the city. Treat yourself to yummy tacos or a fresh juice at this locals-only market!

Day 5: Depart Mexico

Your Cancun adventure ends today. At the appropriate time, transfer to Cancun airport for your flight home.

When I booked with Great Value I was nervous because it seemed too good to be true. Nope, just a really great deal. I was able to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland and it was within my budget. Everything was covered, my lodging, flights, and rental car. There was no hidden fees, or fine print that would nickel and dime me later on, as "good deals" usually have. I also had to change the date of my trip and the customer service was excellent and this change was simple. Thank you Great Value, I'll be using you every time I travel from now on

Everything on the trip was excellent. The only concern with any services from GVV was initial communications ahead of the trip regarding when and how we'd receive all our travel vouchers, as some were available online, and some were to be picked up in country upon arrival. It took no less than 5 phone calls to learn some vouchers would be picked up in country. The trip was outstanding, exhausting, but gloriously beautiful. It was exhausting from the perspective of moving around the country and only a few places were 2 nights. But, we knew that going in, and we wanted to see ALL of Switzerland and this certainly checked those boxes. We saw majestic mountains, we saw countless waterfalls and glaciers. The trains in Switzerland were all clean and we felt safe. The hotels were good with delicious breakfasts each morning. Overall, I would recommend GVV to a friend or family member and I would personally book another vacation with GVV.

This was my first time planning a trip out of the country. I read previous reviews who had a good experience with Great Value Vacation. Our trip was amazing! The booking and reservations were easy to use with the vouchers provided. The staff was helpful. The only downside was I upgraded to have an automatic vehicle and they gave me a stick shift. It took a while to get sorted out but other than that I loved my trip! I will definitely use great value vacations again when I book my next trip. I opted for the additional wine tasting package and I did not regret it! I recommend adding those additional tours to get a more complete experience.

My wife and I recently booked our vacation through Great Value Vacations. We were a bit nervous to travel to Europe for the first time, but we are glad we did. Great Value Vacations took care of us. Great customer service. Seamless transactions. They booked the hotels and flights for us. All we had to worry about were the daily activities! I would highly recommended them. The hotels offered through the package were as advertised: nice and in great locations. The flights times were also convenient. The best part was the price. I am thankful for the experiences Great Value Vacation was able to provide for us!

Really enjoyed both of my trips through Great Value Vacations. I went on one family trip to Ireland (Adare villa, rental car with trips out to Dublin, Cliffs of Moher and more) . The villa was very comfortable with a kitchen, three bedrooms, and proximity to the local shops /restaurants. We were able to upgrade to an automatic car and had fun navigating to each location on our itinerary. The trip as planned by the agency still leaves time for exploring on your own and since we picked a trip with our own transportation, we had flexibility on which tours we wanted to do and when.

My second trip was a solo trip to Scotland. I like to go on vacation by myself sometimes, but it can be hard to find ones where you aren’t penalized for being on your own. This train trip to Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow worked out really well for me. The hotels were all near the train stations and in safe areas (good lighting, plenty of people, etc.). I got a good mix of options for sightseeing in each city. The hop-on, hop-off bus circuit was especially useful for getting around Edinburgh. I also added an extra tour on in Glasgow to see nearby castles and a distillery and was very glad to have done so as the views of the countryside were amazing!

Summary: Have enjoyed my previous experiences and would definitely use again

Just got back from our trip to Italy booked through Great Value Vacations & was our dream come true! We could not have gone if it were not for their unbelievable rates. Each 4 Star Villa we stayed at was above and beyond our expectations...I cried after leaving each part of our journey. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with them. Besides the Villas being beautiful, great locations, clean, and great staff; each place we arrived at actually said, "They said to give you a very nice room." (with a rate of just under $1,900 a piece for 9 nights not counting travel days at 4 stars Villas in Rome, Tuscany, & Venice including airfare and rent a car... a few friends told us to expect the worst rooms at the places we were staying ~ NOT the case! Our rooms had the best views...I could go on and on. Every step of the way was smooth with no worries whatsoever. Thanks again GVV! LOVED IT!
