Discover one of the New7Wonders of the World: Chichen Itza. This day trip from Cancun introduces you to the ancient Maya city with an informative guide. Learn about famous structures at the archaeological site, such as the Temple of Kukulcan, also known as El Castillo. After free time to swim in a sacred cenote, head to a restaurant for a buffet lunch followed by return transport to your hotel aboard a luxury coach.
Our guide Galo was awesome! Very funny guide, kept things entertaining. Very knowledgeable and loves what she does. Definitely had a good time. A lot to do in a day so keep up. It is a 12 hour day so stick to the schedule. As long as everyone follows this, then you might get extra time at another location. From past reviews, time is very limited at each location. I'd recommend wearing your bathing suit underneath you clothes. This will give me you more time at the cenote. Be courteous of other travelers and be at your pick up location on time. Pack a light snack with you for the 5 hour roundtrip bus ride. So lunch is first and it is a buffet of local Mayan cuisine. I think we spent too much time there 2 hours that could've been for Chichen Itza. The restaurant also has a souvenir shop. We are very open minded with our cuisine and I must say that lunch was very good! We had 2 hours at the ruins and because everyone was on time with the schedule we had an extra hour at the cenote! This cenote is busy so the original given time of 45 min is definitely not enough. Before heading home, you get to go to this small shopping plaza for 20 mins! Not really much time to do anything except buy some snacks from the food cart and stretch your legs. But it was a good time to interact with the local Mayans. Take time to learn about the Mayan culture and cuisine during this trip. Have fun!
Oh man. Alfonso - my boy - was the BEST tour guide ever. Gustavo was ON POINT with the drink service and Mr. Speedy Gonzales, our bus driver, drove so smooth, I was never worried about spilling my drink. Amazing service, wonderful staff, great experience overall. The Cenote was spectacular to behold - bring cash! It's much easier to haggle with exact change. Chichen Itza was impressive and definitely awe inspiring. Worth every penny.
Great day with an awesome and knowledgeable tour guide
It was good for the price you pay.... Pyramids guide was good, also was good to skip the line and the time there was perfect. I liked the lunch in Valladolid and the town was very nice. I would dedicate more time to this even lunch instead of the chaman stuff.
I think was a bit wasting time to queue for check in before to take the bus, this is something that should be done before considering you pay in advance for this service and all that you get is the wristband to get into the tour.
Overall Tour was good, but communication with Tour Company company was bad as they assigned the wrong section of the hotel for pickup in which wasted 2 hours before I was able to get picked up. I never received any communication prior to departure to confirm the pick spot.
Unfortunately, this tour wasn't as great as my group and I imagined. It was about two hours before we reached our first stop. The tour guide talked the whole day! At first it wasn't so bad because he talked about the history and shared lots of information but because we started so early in the morning I noticed lots of the passengers were falling asleep and it was hard to focus on his stories. By the second hour it went down hill from there. He turned into a salesman. It was one sales pitch after another and continued that way the whole day! It was hard to relax or really take into consideration the value of what he was showing us because it was all for sale. The way the tour was marketed it presented that the 1st stop would be Chichen Itza then Cenote swim then lunch. But our tour guide decided to do everything backwards!? We started with Lunch to be honest a lot of time was wasted here just trying to push sales then the cenote swim and finally Chichen Itza. He gave us exactly 1 hour at the Cenote so by the time we changed our clothes we actually only had about 15-20 minutes to spare for the swim. Those of us who are not professional swimmers need more time to make our way through the place. It felt really rushed! we barely had time for photos. Also, in the tour it mentions Ik Kil Cenote which is a very popular one but the cenote we were taken to was different that was disappointing I think they just assumed we wouldn't notice It was very inconvenient because our hair got wet, makeup was wiped off and we were all wet/sticky going to Chichen Itza. Lots of others complained to our tour guide about why we went to the cenote swim first and he just brushed it off. By the time we reached Chichen Itza it was very hot at this time of afternoon and this was in Nov. which only added to the confusion of why we didn't come earlier when the sun wasn't so high. The tour was nice just didn't play out as advertised.
