Why Travellers Choose This Tour

This Chichen Itza tour includes admission, lunch, hotel transport, and free time to explore.
Depart from your hotel in the Riviera Maya and enjoy a comfortable journey in an air-conditioned coach to the ancient archeological site of Chichen Itza. Alongside your informative and interesting guide, begin your tour of one of the New World Wonders. Gaze at the colossal construction of El Castillo, a sacred pyramid that dominates the site, as you gain insight into Mayan traditions and the astronomical precision of the architecture.
Explore legendary landmarks like the Temple of the Warriors before discovering the mystifying acoustics of the Ball Court on your guided expedition. Stroll to the dramatic natural formation of the sacrificial cenote, from which human skeletons and precious jewelry were recently excavated. Discover entire excavated cities that are only just beginning to reveal the secrets of their founder’s glorious past.
Enjoy some relaxed free time wandering around the site independently; absorb the stunning jungle scenery before perusing the unique craft stalls for special souvenirs. Then, return to the minivan to journey to your next destination.
Feast upon traditional Mexican fare at a local restaurant then travel to the subterranean depths of a spectacular cenote; gaze downwards at the glittering pool of water below, diving into the iridescent waters for a refreshing swim. Dry off and return to the coach to enjoy the scenic journey back to your Riviera Maya hotel.

The tour was very nice and it was a long day from Playa del Carmen. Seeing Chichen Itza was amazing and we are so glad we scheduled it. Paul was very knowledgeable as were the driver and others that helped on the tour. Definitely worth it.

Great full day tour that takes in Il Kil and CHichen Itza. Ramon, Raul and the crew were great. Provided water and even umbrellas for guest comfort. Fed us well. My only regret was not having enough time to get to the Iglesia and Observatory at CHichen Itza... The guided portion of the tour went long, and while very informative and interesting, it meant that the hour for exploration turned into more like 40 min... Not enough time to get to the southern portion of the site. Also, a 10 min stop in Vallodolid for pictures of the cathedral and market would have been appreciated. In all, a day well spent.

The excursion itself was marvelous. The guides were entertaining and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend it to anyone. The only problem we had was in checking in for the trip. We were supposed to check in 24-48 hours in advance. The US phone number was not a working number. The Mexican number was eventually answered and they assured us that there would be someone at our hotel to tell us when and where to be picked up-there wasn't. Luckily we had received an email just before we left with a time, so we went to the lobby at that time with some concern as to whether the tour was on or not. We were picked up on time and from that point on it was wonderful. We cannot say enough nice things about the people, the tour, the lunch-all of it once we got started.

There was miscommunication regarding pick up but it ended up working out. Didnt realize there were going to be so many stops/pickups before we actually got to our destination. It made it a very long day.

We had a wonderful time at Chichen Itza. Norma was very knowledgeable and informative. The transportation from the hotel to the final big bus was very confusing. Our van driver gave us no information why we were stopping on the side of a busy highway. About 20 minutes later the big bus arrived and we were ushered on it. Apparently in Mexico this is standard procedure. It would have been nice to know that. Viator was worth the extra dollars for the extra things they provided such as an umbrella at the sight to block the sun, cool towels when we got back to the bus and a guide who spoke English clearly.
