A guided visit to the site usually lasts about 90 minutes followed by 45 minutes of free time to explore on your own or to give the more energetic the opportunity to bargain with the locals for some of the handicraft items for sale.
Excellent!!! Trip was actually serviced by Cancun Passion. Very comfortable bus came right to gates of our resort (Grand Mayan). Continental breakfast was provided on the bus and lunch at very nice buffet restaurant was served after the visit at Chichen Itza. In the afternoon we drove to cenote were we had an opportunity to swim in crystal clear water. Unlimited cups of tea, coffee, bottled water, soft drinks and corona beer were provided on the bus during the entire trip. Our tour guides, Diego and Philippe were extremely nice and very knowledgeable and provided more information about Mayas than we expected. Diego, our bus conductor, was wonderful as well. Chichen Itza itself is a place that everyone should see; again, crew form Cancun Passion exceeded our expectation. Highly recommended.
Once again, Viator delivered a first class tour. The tour was fantastic, as were our guides. Not only were they knowledgeable, caring, and funny, but they were genuinely concerned about everyone's well being. The stops at Chichen Itza, the wonderful restaurant and market, and the beautiful cenote were all more than enjoyable! Eduardo, Victor, and the others are to be commended for a long to be remembered special day!
