Chichen Itza Small-Group Tour with Private Entrance

Cancun, Mexico

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Wonderful site but a terrible guide.

The main issue was the tour guide who spoke far too fast, with a strong accent and as a consequence I didn't understand 80% of what was said. Everything was repeated in Spanish and it was difficult to know where the English part started. He didn't work to a plan by explaining things from first principles, but rather went straight for a long winded description of the detail. His manner was that of a school teacher who had to get through the lesson as soon as possible so everything was rushed.

I would go on the trip again but not with this company.

I saw other guides talking with passion, telling stories and you could see the audience was gripped. That made our experience worse still.

This is a trip to the 7th wonder of the world and whilst the guide didn't completely spoil it, I did put a bad stain on the day.

On the positive side the transport was clean and the inclusive lunchtime food was good but you had to pay for the drinks.

Xel-Ha All Inclusive Day Trip from Cancun

Cancun or Playa del Carmen, Mexico

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

What your not told is that you will be picked up very early only to be driven to a shopping mall where you are given tickets and made to wait for 25 minutes whilst they sort out the transport for the second leg.

Xel-Ha is wonderful though - basically a lagoon in the middle of a jungle with lots of snorkeling and other activities. The inclusive food and drinks are excellent.

One of the best places to swim with dolphins.

I would go on the trip again but not with this company.
