If you're going to see anything, this is it! Anyone who's interested in the history of the Yucatan should visit Chichen Itza. The guides are well informed and happy to answer questions and this day trip is well organised, with enough time to see the site and relax at lunch.
Amazing site, and a really fun English-speaking tour. You definitely do not want to go to a place like this without one, because there's so much history that you can't glean from just showing up. The buffet lunch was pretty good too!
Very good tour guide. Small group, which we wanted.
More crowded than Uxmal though.
Buffet lunch was good too.
The tour was well organized and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
I brought my parents to Merida to celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary and we took this day tour to Merida. Our guide, Augusto, was terrific. He waited for Mom (both hips replaced twice) and we were a small group so we received special attention. The weather was perfect and the tour was great!
Great tour , excellent guide knew all about Chichen Itza and the Mayans
Good swimming to cap off great day
This was an incredible Mayan site. Alot of the structures are still in place. Our tour guide was very enthuisiastic with his presentation and gave us excellent information. I would highly recommend this tour!!!
I want to exchange from today’s tour of Merida Market Tour and Cooking Class.
But, your Mayaland phone is no connection and I asked hotels receptionist to call your 1-702-648-5873. But, the receptionist can’t receive your correct answer from you.
So, I give up. But, Cooking Class was much batter for me.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience on our visit to Chichen Itza. Our guide was excellent. He was courteous, informative and attentive. All in all a great experience.
It was a very educational and interesting trip.
Our guide was excellent. He went beyond what I expected. His name was Mitch.
I give him an A plus.
Mitch was very informative and knowledgable, he went the extra mile.
A good tour, but it was very hot the day we visited. Lunch was good.
I was not able to reach the local agent to confirm pick up and time at my hotel. There was no answer at any of the numbers given to me but I was picked up at a suitable time.
Our guide was exceptional-Elias and the trip down was very good and so was the tour. But someone at the office decided we would not go back with our guide and put us in a full van--last back seat with four of us! Very uncomfortable and the driver drove so slow that it took twice as long to get back. Miguel was the driver.
Not happy about that!
Great service pick up at hotel friendly and knowledgable tour guides!
It was a wonderful expirence our tour guide was great and our driver Cesar was very helpful when we asked about places we should visit in the city of Merida!
A must-see in the Yucatan, as it's the Mayan ruin that is familiar to everyone. I have heard that Palenque is better and less commercial (60 km south), but you can see great pictures at the National Anthropological Museum in Merida. Viator was much the best of the tours we selected from online reviews. The endless rows of locals at Chichen Itza selling 1000s of mass-produced souvenirs for "one dollar" were depressing -- especially since no one seemed to be buying anything. And the tour guides tended to ramble on and on in the hot sun with sometimes limited or heavily accented English; we had to leave before the tour was done. The meal and hotel facilities were great, but I was surprised that water and soft drinks were not included. Pickup and delivery were spot on.
Very interesting location and the guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He was aware of each of the tour participants and ensured that everybody had a rewarding experience. A little disappointed that we did not have the observatory included in the guided component of the tour. The bus was comfortable and appropriate for the trip.
Transportation, guide, food are good. But to me it is a bit more hyped as the structures are inaccessible. Sight though vast is full of small souvenir sellers. Entrance fee to cenote is not included.
Avarage tour, they are doing it for your money and no more! Next I'm looking forward an other company, I hope there are.
