The trip was very well organized and we enjoyed ourselves very much. It is a very good way to get to these two places, because even with modern transportation and roads, they are still remote. You could do this trip on your own, but it would take far more time and you just don’t have that to waste on a day like this. It was very nice to have stops for breakfast and lunch and a break on the way back, so that the day did not feel rushed at all. Our driver and guide were experienced and they worked together well. We did have a 30 minute delay in our pick-up time in the morning, but we still were able to see everything and have a very enjoyable day. I would recommend this trip to those who have a real strong interest in Maya culture. Just know: there is some intermediate strenuous climbing of stairs if you are up for it. Otherwise, you can go around most of that as well. The boat trip to Yixchalan was very pleasant as well: we even saw a gigantice crocodile sunning on the river bank! Be prepared for rain, sun, musquitos, and bring water. I have taken day trips with Viator before and I have enjoyed them!
