Our bilingual tour guide provided just the right amount of interaction, information and control of activities to make it a very enjoyable day-long adventure.
I must say the trip was long, but I don't think they can move it any closer. It was very enjoyable and we had a knowledgeable guide in Hugo. The Mayans certainly did the Mexican a huge favor by building this temple. The Cenote and dinner was good too.
The bus was very comfortable and roomy. The staff and guides were very knowledgeable and informative. My family and I had a great time.
We stayed at the Royal Solaris and we were the second stop for pick up. Once everyone was on the coach bus Guadalupe started chatting with us and explaining our day to us in detail. She's extremely nice and very knowledgable of the Mayan culture. The centre and chichen itza were awesome!
We had an awesome time! Hugo, our tour guide did an excellent job! Love that guy!
Even though the tour takes about 12 hrs. It felt quick, tour guide Karla was very pleasant and the cenote and side of chichen itza was amazing.
What a great experience. My only tour complaint was that everything was too rushed, but that's to be expected when traveling with a tour group, right? Hugo was very informative and the bus driver's skills were amazing. He was a great driver and got that bus in hotels for pick-ups that I wouldn't have thought he could.We rode an hour, stopped for a potty break, and then stopped at the cenote for a swim that was my favorite part of the whole trip!! It was GORGEOUS and refreshing. Be sure to take a swimsuit. They have changing rooms, showers (you must shower before entering), and lockers to rent while you're there. Don't dally with the vendors or you won't have enough time to swim (which is optional). This part of the trip was just too short for me and I would have loved to spent more time there. They take your picture as you enter the park and when you return, they have a bottle of "Xtabentun" with your picture, the date, the name of the cenote on it, that you can purchase without any pressure. This is an EXCELLENT memento! The buffet lunch was tasty but very busy as the buses start rolling in (btw, drinks are not included so be prepared to pay for your soda, water,etc). Chichen Itza was beautiful but very hot. Hugo did an excellent job of trying to keep us in the shade. I'm a sun worshiper but it was just too overwhelming without the ocean breeze. Although wearing a hat helps with the sun, I strongly recommend taking a small umbrella and water. The park was beautiful, the vendors were not as persistent as I had feared (they respected and accepted "No" and didn't push), and Hugo was a wealth of knowledge. I didn't really know the true history of Chichen Itza and Hugo wove the story with such passion and knowledge!! I definitely recommend this as a "must do" while visiting. The ride was long but oh my........it was well worth it!!
Had the most wonderful day and our guide driver and bar man on the coach were excellent really really looked after us.The history was very interesting and our guide was very good explaining things.So glad we chose the trip and we loved Mexico and the people.
Absolutely incredible, was the highlight of our trip. From the driver, the guide to his assistant, these guys were the best. Our guide was an expert on Mayan history - we learnt so much. Its a long day - beginning around 7 or 8am and concluding about 12 hours later. The sights seen along the way are worth it alone. Its one of the wonders of the world, its a must do.
This tour was excellent. Pick up from hotel was on time and everything was as expected. We had a relaxing time swimming in the cenote and after that a delicous meal at a typical restaurant. Our tour guides Antonio and Juan Carlos tought as a lot about the Mayan culture. I highly recommend you this tour.
Our guides were the best we've ever had. They were knowledgeable, caring and down to earth.
Our tour guide, Hugo, was fantastic. He explained, in detail, what to expect throughout the day so it made the trip very enjoyable. He was very conscience of people's needs. The information given at Chichen Itza was told in a fashion that could be easily understood. It was a long but very enjoyable day. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering it. Swimming in the Cenote was my favorite!!
Excellent tour that is well worth the money! Tour picks you up from the hotel in the morning. It is a little bit of a drive from the Cancun hotels, so bring some sort of entertainment if you don't plan on sleeping. I think the drive was about 2hrs and 45min. The whole archeaological site is really amazing. Make sure to bring sunblock and water. Also, make sure to bring Pesos for souvenirs since the exchange rate is a little off. The tour guide (we had Carla) is full of knowledge and loves the history of the site. This is a must do!
The highlight was swimming in the cenote ( and jumping into it )! Chichen itza was great , but you have to be interested or else you'll get somewhat bored. Our tour guide, Tony, was awesome. Only problem was the bloody heat - the place had no shade so bring an umbrella, seriously. Great tour !
