Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Chichen Itza is a truly captivating archeaological site, and taking a private tour allows you to see it on your own terms. Start out whenever you're ready and spend as many hours as you'd like exploring this ancient Mayan capital.
What You Can Expect
Explore the ancient capital of the Mayan Empire and learn why it has been designated one of the modern wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its extraordinary architectural beauty and geographical location are sure to leave you in awe! Because you are on a private tour, you can spend as much of the day as you’d like uncovering these ruins. If you’d like to go even deeper, you can hire an on-site guide, for an additional cost estimated at USD $50–$60, who will introduce you to the secrets of the Mayans and explain the historical significance of the important sites.
You can visit the observatory, the ball court and the castle. You’ll also visit the Sacred Cenote (Cenote Sagrado in Spanish), a sinkhole and natural wonder.
Lunch can be included with your private tour. The local restaurant serves fresh salads, soups, rice, chicken, fish, vegetables and other regional dishes. While eating, enjoy a festive show where the locals perform traditional dances to folklore music.
Your tour concludes with a drive back to your Cancun hotel in a private vehicle.
We've been to the Mayan ruins in Belize (Lamanai) and Guatemala (Tikal), which are quite impressive. I was impressed with what we found at Chichen Itza. The only difference, and drawback we found in the Yucatan site was the vast number of aggressive vendors trying to sell souvenirs (mostly mass produced junk too). We found one local artist there, Efrain Cetz, who produced very high quality wood carvings. The tour will be vastly more enjoyable if you read some books on Mayan culture before you arrive.
This was fantastic. This is the best way to see Chichen Itzá. Great personal service. I loved it.
