Loved the trip to Chichen Itza, long day but very informative and great for history buffs. Our tour guide Ricardo was very knowledgeable and gave us a very good tour of the site, not just the history, but the how and why the structures were built the way they were. The trip to the cenote was very cool as well, could have spent a couple more hours there but unfortunately only so many hours in the day. Lunch was tasty similar to most of the all-inclusive buffets at the resorts, and it was cool to see the present-day Mayan village and the colonial town as well.
Overall the tour was very good.The Guide Carlos was excellent .Just the first stop at the shop was more like a trap but may be some people like it.Would recommend .
I booked this tour online before going to Cancun. It was a long day but totally worth the trip. We were picked up on time and were driven to a meeting place where we boarded a comfortable, AC bus, complete with clean restroom in the back. Our tour guide,Carlos Moo pronounced Mo was very professional, informative and entertaining. He is of Mayan heritage and shared a wealth of information with us.He even passed out pictures, various artifacts and maps. We learned some Mayan phrases and our kids 9 and 12 were fascinated and engaged the whole time. We were taken to a local artisan village for some shopping. Here we found beautiful textile, jewelry, pottery, ceramics,T shirts, food and drinks. A Mayan youth student who temporarily joined us in the bus, sold bottles of native anise alcoholic drink can't remember name with our pictures on the label taken earlier outside of the bus in the artisan shop. We also had a chance to sample the drink. We continued to Chichen Itza and marveled at this amazing site. Carlos told us to expect a lot of vendors as we initially got to the site. He wasn't joking. Bring small bills, some vendors don't have change. As we continued on, Carlos eagerly told us the historical significance and meaning of the structures. He tried to find shaded areas where he told us more interesting facts about the Mayan culture and answered all our questions. We took more pictures after about 90 mins with Carlos. We had a buffet lunch then swam in the cenote. We showered before entering to prevent harsh chemicals contaminating the cenote. Life vests are available.The bus tour took us to Valladolid, a traditional town. Here we walked around the plaza, took more pictures and had ice cream. We were later dropped off at our hotel. I recommend this tour!. Chichen Itza is an amazing place.The cost of the tour included the entrance fees and lunch as well. Just bring money for shopping and much appreciated tips. You won't be disappointed.
This was a great day where you learn so much about the Mayan culture both past and present. Ricardo and his team were fantastic and so enthusiastic!
It was a long day! So be prepared but you see so much and experience so much you can and #39;t complain! A great day out. Thank you
I love this trip to Cancun with Carlos and Juan the tours guide.
Tour was very informative without being boring. Tour guide was really friendly, knowledgable, and funny. Ample time to explore Chichen Itza on your own after a brief history lesson with the tour guide. Bus ride was smooth and included a stop to a local artisan shop for a chance to buy handmade souvenirs. Lunch buffet was a little disappointing. The cenote was absolutely beautiful and one of the coolest things I've ever experienced! Would definitely recommend!
Excellent and convenient! From pick up to drop off.
I was not sure if I should but the tours before arriving but it was worth it. Tors there are more expensive and not so professional.
very informative the guide was very knowledgeable of the area and had a blast on the drive there and the drive back.
Great tour! Luiz is an excellent guide. Very interesting and educative. Worth the price!
Our guide Carlos was VERY knowledgeable and proud of his Mayan heritage. Bus picked us up at 8:00 hrs and didn't get back until 20:30hrs. Great trip only wish I had known it would last that long. Luckily we brought extra water and snacks.
I highly recommend this trip. We had a group of 10 and our guide was great. He took great pride in the culture and provided insight to the Mayan culture. This is a must see man made wonder!!! Now that is a historic site you cannot climb or get too close which is expected to keep them around for another 100 years and more.
i highly recommended. Ricardo was our tour guide and he was funny, helpful and knowledgeable.
Note: if you are taking this tour, be aware that you will be spending all day on this tour.
We stared at 8am and back to the hotel around 10pm.
This is really nice tour to Chichen itaza, it's worth the trip.
My wife and I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide, Ricardo, was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Of course, just seeing and experiencing the auditory wonders of the large temple and ball court of Chichen Itza itself are huge reasons to tour this historic site, but we also recommend this visit for the things we didn't anticipate. For example, we visited a Mayan community on the way where we tried a traditional liquor and had personalized birth certificates created for us using Mayan hieroglyphs on paper made from tree bark. We also had a great time diving the cenote and swimming to cool down. While the water isn't as cristal clear as Centoe de Dos Ojos, it's since it's an open-air cenote there are beautiful trees and plants cascading down the walls. While the lunch that was included wasn't our favorite--it wasn't very authentic Mexican food pasta, potato salad, mild fajitas, etc.-- it was a buffet that included several options. Overall, we highly recommend this tour!
The trip was excellent. Luis and Alex both are professionals. The sights are amazing. our family and the whole group enjoyed it very much. Thank you Luis.
Ricardo was an amazing tour guide, he kept our group engaged and was very knowledgable about the Mayan history. Our family had a great time. The tour was very nice and the time spent at each location was just right. This tour is a must do for Cancun!
Great informative trip, that kept us entertained and the visit to the Cenote was one of the highlights of our week vacation. The guide helped steer us clear of cheap imitation souvenirs, and answered any questions.
Will certainly use this group again.
