Phenomenal! Our guide, Carlos Noel Moo, was outstanding! He is a walking Mayan documentarian. He is Mayan and speaks English, Spanish, and Mayan interchangeably. He makes the 2 plus hour drive from Cancun fly with the amazing history and his vast knowledge of the Mayan civilization. They provide one water bottle during the trip so I suggest you bring your own. However, they do stop at a convenience store for a bathroom break and to purchase drinks and snacks. Bring your bathing suit, towels, water shoes/flip flops as you will stop at Cenote Il Kil, world's largest sinkhole for a swim. It is a breathtaking, natural swimming pool, within the earth, like a bottomless well, filled with clean, refreshing, aquamarine water. It is much hotter at Chichenitza so take a hat and sunscreen. Carlos gave us awesome archeological information as well as unbelievable facts of how and why the pyramids were constructed. Spectacular knowledge of astronomy sound and light engineering and design. The list is endless. I would recommend videotaping his explanations while you are there to share with your friends and family because it is quite fascinating and he explains it so passionately and succinctly. When I return with my kids I will definitely do this tour again! Do not hesitate...book now and ask for Carlos. You will gain an enormous appreciation and love of the Mayan civilization.
Tour was awesome! It was about 11 hours long and well worth it! Ricardo was such an energetic and warm guide. Just a warning though - in is VERY HOT - make sure you're in very light clothes and bring sunscreen. At one point we were ecstatic it started raining so we could cool off a bit. The cenote was the highlight for me - it was so beautiful - and make sure to take a dip inside to get the full experience!
Tour guide was very knowledgeable. I've recommended this tour to all my friends planning to visit Cancun.
Excellent. From on time pick up to knowledgeable guides, this was an excellent learning experience. Highly recommend.
Very good trip. The guide was excellent , knowledgeable and well prepared
The journey is very long but the distance and time allows the tourists get an excellent education of the Mayan people and culture. Overall, an excellent experience. Will recommend it and this team
My husband and I really enjoyed the small group tour. Our driver was Ricardo and our tour guide was Susana. She really made our day. She was extremely knowledgeable with the Maya history and sites. She was very helpful and fun. We would recommend it to everyone interested in a tour to Chichen Itza.
This was a great very well organized and informative tour.Ricardo was our tour guide,. He was very knowledgeable, amazing and clear.Ricardo made our tour through Chichen Itza and Cenote a memorable one. I would strongly recommend to our friends.
I cannot stress enough how helpful and informative our guide was, Carlos Moo is an embassador for the Mayan people and was basically like a Mexican Father while we were on the tour, we were lucky enough to get him on our Cancun Tulum and Coba tour so we already had met and that made the day much better as we walked around Chichen Itza. Carlos you are a legend!!
Ricardo was our tour guide. He was amazing! He was clear and informative. The driver was great too. And the assistant. We stopped in a Mayan city and met very nice people and got astrology charts. We toured through Chichen Itza and then we also went to a cenote and ate lunch. This was such an amazing trip. Thank you!
Would recommend to a friend. Guide was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Tour was well organized and extremely informative for the amount of time given. The only drawback was that the cenote that was visited was crowded with mostly teenagers. Made me not want to swim in it. Otherwise great all around.
This was a great tour! They added in Valladolid and we were not expecting this - it was only a quick 20 minute stop, but greatly appreciated by all. Our tour guide, Ricardo, was funny and informative.
Really great experience. Driver and guide were very professional. Great customer service. Guide was very informative and timing was really good. Punctual pick up. Tour guide was multilingual! I was very surprised!! Good job Carlos! Viva Mexico!
Excellent guide, Carlos Mo, who provided both the historical/archeological background and contemporary context for both Chichen Itza and the cenote sites. A bit of a logistics delay going from a van to the tour bus. Nonetheless an extremely worthwhile day.
The tour was awesome! Our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. The ride to Chichen Itza was great as we got to drive through a small Mexican town. The entire tour to Chichen Itza was amazing, especially swimming in the cenote...nothing like it! I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a very well planned and impeccably executed tour. Ricardo is a very experienced and talented guide, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. He especially made sure we went to the ruins in the late afternoon, so we may watch the formation of Kukulkan with the setting sun on equinox day. The day trip started with quick stop at a traditional village, a Mayan gift shop, and around afternoon we stopped at the town of Valladolid. The swim at the cenote later was refreshing, and the buffet after was yummy. Do give yourself enough time to enjoy it! The ruins were explored at a relaxed pace over the course of 1.5 to 2 hours, and then we found a comfy spot on the grass to watch the sunset. Ricardo knows this region in and out, and what I loved was that he explained so much about the Mayan history and its people during the trip. Never a dull moment!
This tour was well worth the price. Our guide was fabulous and spoke English and Spanish with equal skill. The lunch was great love the seafood and the visit to the Cenote was awesome.
I highly recommend this tour.
Can't say enough good things about this tour! The small size of the group, the excellent tour guide, the Temple, swimming in the Cenote, lunch - everything was perfect. It's a long day by necessity but they made it fun. Highly Recommend!
Chicen Itza tour led by Irvin and Luis was worth the money and more. Both of them were knowledgeable and well educated on the Itza peoples, history, and culture.
Tour guide, Carlos Moo, was fantastic! We learned much more with him around than if we had visited these places on our own. The only complaint we can think of is that the cenote visited by this tour is extremely crowded.
Good trip. The guides are pretty excited to show you everything. They go above and beyond.
