This famous archaeological sites is one of the most impressive examples of the Maya-Toltec civilizations. The site is dominated by the large central pyramid called El Castillo and the surrounding buildings include the Temple of the Warriors or 1,000 Columns, the Ball-court and the well or cenote from which Chichen Itza takes its name.
The archaeological site is surrounded by underground rivers, natural wells and limestone that the Mayans used to construct their magnificent buildings. Discover entire cities that are only just beginning to reveal the secrets of their founders' glorious past!
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.

The tour bus and guides were very well-informed and entertaining.
The continental breakfast was very good, and the snacks were good as well.
The restaurant where we had lunch was excellent!
I highly recommend this tour and tour company.
I must say though that I could not use the booking confirmation on my iPhone App - they wanted a hard copy, for future reference.

Edwin was our tour guide and he was excellent! Very informative and funny too! I LOVED these ruins and only wish I could see more! HIGHLY recommend this. The cenote on the way home was a tourist trap and seemed dirty, the food at the lunch was just OK. The ruins are the attraction!
