Wonderful! It was everything as advertised and had very knowledgeable guides and a comfortable bus.
This tour was such an amazing experience! One of the new 7 wonders of the world :). The tour operator, the guide, the transportation, everything was perfect!
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!
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!
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.
We had a really enjoyable day at Chichen Itza. I booked with Viator from the hotel and couldn't fault the service. Our guide Irving was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and very friendly. it was a great day out, and I would really recommend it.
I won't comment on Chichen Itza or the Ik Kil Cenote because other people have. Needless to say if you go to this region you cannot miss these wonders of the world!
An exceptional tour with an exceptional guide! Our guide was Carlos. He is Mayan himself, so this is his people and his land, and he is very proud of it and loves to show it off! He taught us about the land of Mexico and how it was settled between the natives Mayan, Aztec, the Spaniards, the French and the Cuban. He's such a wealth of knowledge and we were glued to ever word he said. He did a great job at keeping the group together, and spoke both English and Spanish for the mixed group in short 4 or 5 word bursts rather than long sentences or entire stories which was really great.
Our tour bus was 20 - 30 minutes late, apparently because one of the group was sleeping when they showed up. Some people might not be ok with that. But you know, if you were them you would really appreciate it. And it's a 10 -12 hour tour anyway, so what's 20 or 30 minutes? You're on vacation, relax!
Fantastic trip. Really interesting hearing about Mayan culture and Chichen Itza itself was spectacular. The tour guides were brilliant. Definitely worth the visit !
I definitely recommend this tour. It was an awesome experience. Carlos Moo tour guide and Javier Driver were excellent. Carlos had so much acknowledge friendly and funny. My husband and myself went for our anniversary and this was the best part from our visit to Cancun. They pick up us at the main lobby from the hotel at 7:30am and we came back around 7:30pm its a all day trip but it was totally worth it. I highly recommend it. I good part about this package is that they provide a lunch buffet style with different kind of food, pasta, rice, chicken, pork, fruit, vegetables, beans, dessert pretty much a huge variety to pick. This is my second time on Cancun, first time we didn't go to Chichen Itza but if i have the chance to go again i will definetely will take this tour again. If you thinking to do it. Just do it. You are no going to regret it. Bring comfortable shoes, sun block, sombrero and glasses. By the way, good place to buy affordable souvenirs cheaper than Cancun. And most of them are handmade. I compare the prices of the kitchen magnets with Chichen Itza and Cancun and the prices are lower in Chicken Itza. My husband bought a cool sombrero for only 5.00 and in Cancun they were asking for 13.00.
Have fun and hopefully you have the good luck to get the same tour guide. Carlos Moo.
Informative and fun. Ruben was an excellent tour guide and Andy was a great driver. This tour is great if you are wanting some culture and wanting to see some amazing structures. I will recommend you wait until you get to the pyramids to buy gifts. Trust me. Enjoy this trip especially for the price it is fun.
Great experience. Tour guides were excellent. They were kind and very knowledgeable. Food was good for a person who has some restrictions. I loved the cenote. When you visit Cancun, it is must tour activity
Very fun tour!! Tour guide was extremely knowledgable and gave lots of great info. This is a long tour. Tips: do not wear any light colored shoes or clothing or any open toe shoes because it is VERY DUSTY over there. You will arrive back at your hotel with a fine layer of dirt on you. I even had dirt in my hair. Make sure you bring sung glasses to keep the dirt and dust out of your eyes. Bring lots of sunscreen and make sure that you reapply because it is very, very sunny and hot out there. There are a lot of vendors selling their wares. Shop around. Most offer the same items for similar prices but you can negotiate a better price especially towards the end of the day.
Our tour guide Irving was fantastic and the trip exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this excursion to others.
The tour was excellent! Reading the reviews, we were a bit skeptical, but we had an awesome time. Don't pay attention to the negative reviews- if you want to experience Chichen Itza for yourself, do it regardless of what you read. The tour is everything they tell you. Ruben was like an encyclopedia!
This tour was amazing. From the get-go the tour guide, Ruben was phenomenal. On the way to the site he provided in depth history and cultural knowledge of what we were going to see making the trip much more exciting. The lunch that was provided was exceptional. A great time had by all.
Excellent Trip! Family of 4 enjoyed Carlos Moo as our guide with Javier as our driver. Very detailed explanations of the history of the site, the Mayan people. Prompt pickup within a few minutes of his ETA, given by phone. Comfortable, COOL air conditioned coach was clean. Lunch was very good. Recommend you pack snacks, drinks for the ride, stay hydrated, it is HOT. Bring Peso's for souvenirs, snacks, tips, lifejacket/locker rental cenote. They will take dollars, but the conversion will always include significant overestimates.
Very simple. Edwin was our tour guide and he was perfectly amazing. Without him, it would have been half as amazing.
This is a tour you don't want to miss! Chichen Itza and Ik Kil Cenote were beautiful. Uleses was a great guide - knowledgable, amusing, and professional. Bring water (the bus driver will provide you with 1-2 small bottles each), hats, sunglasses, sunscreen.It was nice being part of a small group too
