Excellent service. Our driver was professional and helpful. We also like the flexibility of the tour. We did not want to see a village as suggested by the agency so we wanted to see Ek Balam instead and the driver took us there. Of course, we bought our own ticket entrance since this was not in the original plan but it was okay. We really enjoyed the trip and the service.

Excellent tour. Our driver was Victor. He was 20 minutes early for us! That was unfortunate for him because we are not an early family lol! But all in all he was helpful, a safe driver, knowledgable and was extremely pleasant to be around. He recommended a guide for us, and the guide - Guillermo was waiting when we arrived. He was prompt in getting tickets etc and from Chichen Itza to the Cenote. Unfortunately due to our time constraints we did not get to spend as long as we would have liked at the Cenote.

It was lovely to learn about Mayan culture, and the guide was exceptional. The weather was extremely hot, and the less clothes you wear, the better, but load up on sunscreen or you will get burnt! Hats can be purchased as you arrive for about 5 USD before you go in to the venue itself.

Just to be clear, what's included in the package I took: 7 persons, 114 USD per person - tickets to Chichen Itza and the Cenote, buffet lunch nothing special, personalized tour times - decide your own start point and end point, as well as transportation to and from the site.

Will highly recommend this tour.

For the Mexican government or whoever is in charge of running Chichen Itza, please please reduce the number of vendors you have lining the walkways around your beautiful ruins. They are cumbersome and definitely take away from the experience.

Will highly recommend this tour to anyone!

The trip was great but the best part about it was our private driver -Ray Gonzalez! Ray made everything fun and easy. He is an amazing host and we felt very safe with him.

There were 9 of us on a tour to Chichen Itza and we all enjoyed it immensely. Upon arriving to our resort I spoke of them hiring a tour guide, who they had hired and was waiting when we arrived. The driver also stopped at 3 places we wanted along the way. After the tour we went for lunch at an air conditioned buffet that served very good food and was most welcome on a hot day in May. I do believe it was less expensive than other tour groups and it cut off probably 3 hours of the ride with a personal van.

We were a family of four and we enjoyed our tour. The tour driver was at the hotel on time and returned us to the hotel on time. He guided us to places were we need to go and provided us all of the tickets needed for the tour. He was professional and took care of us from the start of the tour to the end.

We loved our day trip to Chichen Itza and Cenote. Loredo was our local guide. He gave us the perfect balance of interesting facts and stories and never rushed us on our own. He offered lots of information about the Yucatan and was so happy to have us for the day. He stated himself He LOVES his Job! and you can tell he does. I recommend the private tour, so much more time efficient and relaxing than all the buses we saw.
