Awesome tour especially Ruben the tour guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This tour was extremely fun. Our guide, Marco Polo, was so nice and very, very well-read about the Mayans and Chichen Itza. He gave the tour in Spanish and English, so everyone could understand. The drive from Cancun to Chichen Itza is a bit long, and you will get extremely hungry before lunch, so bring snacks. I'd also bring a hat or umbrella for shade. Overall very fun and exciting--and the Ik Kil Cenote is amazing as well!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Incredible experience from the bus ride to the actual tour of Chichen Itza and swimming at the Cenote, the tour was well organized, informative and amazing. We want to thank Ruben the tour guide for his knowledge and Xavier the driver for keeping us safe and on time. The trip was a definitely must see when in Mexico. We have learned a lot and gained respect and knowledge about the Mayan past. We highly recommend the tour.

We had a wonderful day and Carlos was a fantastic tour guide! We learned so much and had so much fun!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The tour lasted about 10-11 hours but that was very rich. Ruben the guide and Andy the driver made us discover Chichén Itza in a funny way. The swimming and jumping part in a cenote was also thrilling. Though nearly half of the time we were in the bus but at the end of the day this tour really paid off.
