Viator Exclusive: Early Access to Chichen Itza with a Private Archeologist

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. Much better than the big bus tours. It was just what we wanted: transportation there and back with an excellent guide who seemed to know everything about Chichen Itza. Going early was also a big plus. No crowds and we were back to the hotel by 3:00 p.m.

Tulum and Xel-Ha All Inclusive Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We enjoyed this trip, but we didn't have enough time at either place. Our guide at Tulum wasn't nearly as good as the one we had had at Chichen Itza a few days earlier, so we felt we didn't learn as much. Also, I suspect that Tulum isn't as significant of an archaeological site either -- basically it was a housing complex. The thing that Tulum has is absolutely breathtaking views. You just want to stand there and drink in the scenery. We would have liked to stay longer and take more pictures and go down to the beach and explore, but we didn't have enough time. We enjoyed Xel-Ha too, but again, we didn't have enough time. We ate lunch, very good, and took a tube trip down the river, and that was all we had time for. It would be a good place to spend the whole day. Basically, we recommend this trip, but do each one separately on separate days.

Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a great trip! The guide was absolutely fantastic and shared a wealth of information with us. We also enjoyed all the side excursions, the food at the restaurant was delicious, the cenote was beautiful and the water inviting and easily accessible. Even the obligatory stop at the local craft outlet was interesting. A word to the wise for fellow travelers though don't buy anything at the market, everything that is there is also being sold at Chichen-Itza for much cheaper prices. Also, be prepared with tips for various people along the way, dancers at the restaurant, waiters, bathroom attendants, etc. We took a similar trip when we were in Cancun last year, but I enjoyed this one much better, both because the guide was so good on this trip but also because I knew what to expect and so I wasn't surprised at all the people I had to tip.

Capri Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The guides were very good but the trip felt rushed! I would suggest taking out the stop along the way and giving us that extra time in Capri. The bus was very cramped, my husband who is 6'2" had to sit sideways because his legs wouldn't fit. The Blue Grotto was closed the day we went, so the best part for us was the ski lift up to the top of the mountain, gorgeous views!
