A fantastic tour. Going in a small group was definitely the way to go. Transportation was timely and comfortable. Our guide was great and able to speak in both Spanish and English. His knowledge of the Mayan culture and Chichen Itza added to the enjoyment of the trip. You could see his pride in his culture. Chichen Itza is truly a wonder of the world and a must visit place. Highlight of our trip to Cancun

Viator was great in arranging a bus pick up from Dreams Puerto Aventuras. The ride was a quick 2 hours with very knowledgeable Carlos. He was kind enough to lend me Pesos because they only accept that for the GoPro admission. No Cenote swim on this. Tacos at the buffet made me ill. Take caution!

Nice tour, but we absolutely melted from the heat...remember to bring your own shade, an umbrella perhaps? If you have a choice, don't go in summer.

Andreas and Faustino picked us up at our Apartment along with 8 other guests from their locations in their very comfortable, air conditioned Van. Faustino was a wealth of knowledge and shared the History of the lands and Communities between Playa Del Carmen and Chichen Itza. They actually took side routes so that we could actually drive through one of the Mayan towns where they reside today. Faustino's knowledge of Chicken Itza was outstanding and his passion for the history heartwarming. We had a wonderful buffet lunch after the tour and enjoyed the wonderful large swimming pool as it was very hot that day. We also had time to go back and buy some gifts before heading back to Playa. This tour was a highlight of our vacation.
