Another tour company that operates out of Dreams Cancun (an office near Claudia's) is Olympus Tours - they do a lot of hotel/airport transfers so they have staff on site for several hours each day to try and pitch tours to you.
I booked a day trip for my guests (asking them to tell me whether they wanted to go a few weeks in advance of the trip) with Edventure Tours - who are based out of Tulum. They picked us up in 2 vans and took us down to the ruins at Tulum. From there half of the group went to a cave system to explore and then met us for a late lunch. The rest of us went to a cenote for snorkeling and then to a protected bay for more snorkeling and then finally to the restaurant. I believe we were gone from 7:30am to about 5:30pm - and everyone was asleep in the vans on the way back. I believe the cost of the trip was $1660 for 20 people + ~$200 (we paid for food at the restaurant but told everyone they were responsible for their own drinks as we didn't want a huge bar tab too).
I thought about chartering a catamaran and doing a day trip over to Isla Mujeres (with snorkeling) and back, but my now husband wasn't too keen on that idea. I believe a chartered catamaran could be more economical than a land tour if you have a lot of guests.
Hope this info helps.
