If you are interested in Mayan archaeological sites, this is the tour for you. It is paced very well and organized in such a way that you have a wide variety of archaeological and cultural experiences. The small group makes the tour even better. Be sure to choose the deluxe accommodations. This extra all inclusive option is well worth it.
Highly enjoyed my one week in the Yucatan, especially after putting up with 3 months of one of the coldest and snowiest winters in a long time in Boston. My guide, Victor Gonzales was very knowledgeable about the sites that we saw and very attentive to my requests . He seemed to exhibit a real sense of pride in his part of the world and this made the experience all the more enjoyable. Having had an interest in the Mayan civilization for many years, I was very impressed with all the Mayan sites that we visited and learned a great deal on the tour. Besides the ruins we visited beautiful colonial towns, colorful market places, an incredible cave (Lol Tun) and saw some exotic animals on the boat ride on Rio Lagartos.
The two hotels I stayed in were both beautiful and well situated for visiting Chichen Itza and Uxmal. My only real complaint is that Internet and WiFi access was spotty at best.
We modified the itinerary a little and spent the last night in Chichen Itza instead of Uxmal and in retrospect this made a lot more sense since my guide told me that the ride from Uxmal to the Cancun airport would have been close to 4 hours and this would have been much too long on my last day of vacation.
Overall, a fantastic tour that I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
This was an absolutely fascinating tour with emphasis on Mayan culture and sites, however, without leaving other aspects like the colonial towns of Mérida and Campeche, or the natural reserve at Rio Lagartos. Our guide was well informed, spoke Mayan himself and could tell us a lot about the history of his people.
Is was a great tour overall. Our guide, Carlos, was very friendly and helpful. We had enough time to explore the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itzá and Uxmal which were amazing. It was our first trip to the area, so it was a good introduction, and we really want to go back! Hotels and food were very good, we felt very welcome everywhere. It was a pretty ambitious itinerary, we covered a lot of places. As a result, in Mérida and Campeche we would have liked to have more time to explore and do some shopping. On the other hand, the ceramic place we visited at the end of our tour could have been skipped we saw a lot more appealing things in passing. Our flight left at 3 pm already, so we had to miss the Tulum visit at the end. What bothered us is that Mayaland tours did not object to my itinerary early on when I could have still changed it. Several other group members had similar experiences. So I advise future participants to book the return flight in the evening and try to call Mayaland in order to confirm the itinerary.

We were the only 2 tourists in this trip.Visited many Mayan sites and some cities. We had an unique chance to see how Panama hat was made. It is a well designed tour, packed but in the mean time, relaxing. Our guide/driver, JC, was very knowledgeable and attentive. Meals and drinks were included in the package, so we could only choose appetizers and main dishes from a set menu. The dishes of first night were not very appetizing but the second night, we were offered a set menu made for a Japanese tour group, and which was very tasty. Bungalows of both lodges at Chichen Itza and Uxmal were very comfortable. The only drawback was wifi connection wifi was not available in the bungalow at Chichen Itza at Uxmal, it was available but was turned off after 10 pm.
