The trip was fantastic. I found Freddy the archeologist to be very knowledgeable and interested in informing us all about Chichen Itza. He was a wealth of information. It was great to go in the morning and avoid the crowds and the hot sun in the afternoon. Oscar did a super job of driving us to and from the site. Picked up right at the hotel which was very convenient. I would highly recommend this tour with these two gentlemen who made the trip enjoyable and interesting! Thank you Freddy and Oscar.

Freddy Hoil and Oscar make a great Team!
Freddy was entertaining and informative. I have been to Cichen Itza before but the insight provided by our Intellectual Mayan archeologist gave me a better appreciation of this important world heritage site. We loved early site tour without the heat/crowds

A really great tour. We got there before all the crowds so we could enjoy the views and take great pictures. Highly recommended!

We had a great experience with this tour. Our guide Frank was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny; we learned so much about Mayan history and culture through our tour. Pick-up time was very early, but it's totally worth it in my opinion. We got to Chichen Itza before the crowd and the heat, it was also nice to get back to our hotel by 3 pm. Our driver (I thinks his name was Saul) was also great, overall we had a great time.

We were the last ones to be dropped off on our way back and I left my shirt on the van. By the time I realized it they had already left our hotel. I didn't have Frank's number so I thought I'd try calling Amigo Tours. Someone got in touch with Frank right away, they drove back to deliver my shirt, which I really appreciated especially after a long day. Give this tour a try and you will not be disappointed!

My wife and I had a blast on this trip. Saul and Ursula (apologies on the spellings if incorrect) were fantastic. Ursula (our guide) was energetic and provided great information about the site and the various structures. It was great to be there early in the morning, beating both the crowds and the heat. A lot of the drive to the site was spent learning Mayan history which helped set the stage for the rest of the trip through the site itself. Pictures don't do Chichen Itza justice, and this was an excellent way to see it for ourselves.

Freddie is very personable and gave us a great informational tour. He spent the two hours on the way telling us about the history of the Mayan culture. Finding out that he is of Mayan decent made it even more interesting! When we got to the sight he gave us very detailed information about how they built the pyramid, why they positioned the structures at the sight the way they did and about the society's hierarchy and rituals. Our driver Miguel was also great driver and never caused us a nervous moment. It is worth getting up so early to beat the crowds and the heat!

Freddy and Luis were amazing guides. Best way to see Chichen Itza by avoiding the crowds. We were the first people in the park. Freddy is extremely knowledgeable about the Mayan history and is more than willing to answer all questions.

Early access is the way to go. You get in before it gets too crowded, can take pictures without people in the background, and leave by noon just as it gets too hot. Our archeologist guide Frank was great. We learned amazing things. My children ages 21, 18 and 11 all thought it was great!

Worth every second. The guide significantly enhanced the experience. Getting there early was key as we saw a lot before it got too hot and crowded.

This tour was amazing! The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Early access is a must in the high season. There were less people and less heat.
