On arrival, walk with your guide during a 2-hour tour and view impressive structures built during the Maya Empire. View the Kukulkan Pyramid, aka El Castillo (The Castle), as well as El Caracol, also known as the Observatory. See the Plaza of a Thousand Columns, Temple of the Descending God, Temple of the Jaguar, Temple of the Warriors, and the ball court. You'll then have 1 hour to explore the site on your own. (Souvenirs are available for purchase.)
Continue your full-day itinerary to Ek Balam, stopping en route at nearby Cenote Hubiku. Learn about this sacred place, once considered the road to the underworld for the Maya people. Take a refreshing swim in the emerald waters, which reach a depth of 196 feet (60 meters). Spend 45 minutes of free time, followed by a 45-minute lunch at the on-site restaurant, with an optional visit to the tequila museum.
Upon reaching Ek Balam (meaning 'Black Jaguar' in in the Mayan language), tour the well-preserved archaeological site and learn about its ancient Maya royalty. See the tomb of its ruler, housed in the Acropolis, and marvel at the inscriptions. Other important buildings you'll see include the twin pyramids and the ball court. Admire these striking structures and their fine and delicate craftsmanship.
Your tour concludes with transport back to your hotel.

I highly recommend this tour and the company - we would definitely use them again if we were looking to tour the Yucatan again. All of our logistics were taken care of from the beginning to the end of the day and the guides were highly knowledgeable about the places we went, Mayan history, and the culture of the Yucatan peninsula. The majority of our tour was spoke Spanish so there was one guide for the Spanish speakers and one guide who spoke English with us all day, which was far beyond what we had expected.

All of the sites were as advertised and the van was comfortable. I can't imagine getting a better deal for the price and the quality of the tour.

Fantástico, muy recomendable. Todo muy bien organizado y guías muy bien preparado. Las distancias son largas, y hay que tener paciencia, pero vale la pena
