This was a great two days. Our guide, Juan Para, was spectacular - friendly, helpful, extremely knowledgable, and always happy to engage and answer any questions we had. Both ruins were amazing - Chichen Itza is a must see and Uxmal is really really interesting - our favorite, actually. A well-planned trip that gave us a fun and insightful experience with both Mexico and the ruins. I highly recommend.
The tour can be divided into the guide's knowledge of the history of the Yucatan and the tours attendance to the details and the other matters including hotel and meals. The guide was exceptional, his knowledge of the Mayan history, archaeological sites and anthropological and cultural history about the Yucatan Peninsula was invaluable and made the long drive fascinating he knew the difference between fascinating vs. too much information, quite time and etc.. We were disappointed by how much Chichen Itza vs. Uxmal was allowed to be commercialized by vendors which distracted from the actual tour. The hotel was very relaxing and the meals at both the hotel and Merida were very satisfying and an incite into the areas rich culture. The tour was a good get away from a week at the Cancun resort. This tour is not for everyone, we traveled by Mercedes sedan not tour van, for just one couple, and is not recommended for children or those not interested in the Mayan history. It is recommended for those interested overview in the peninsula's archaeological sites, anthropological and cultural history.
