Wonderful experience! There were 3 people in our group, accompanied by our wonderful tour guide, Carlos Munoz and excellent driver, another Carlos. The tour started a bit early I was picked up at my Cancun resort at 5:30 AM and our other two members were picked up at about 6:30 AM from a hotel in Playa Del Carmen which was on the way to Chichen Itza. The van was clean, comfortable, and the driver was excellent. We were given a lovely sack breakfast, including a sandwich, granola bar, apple, and juice box. Water and other drinks were readily available in a cooler in the van as well. We stopped a couple of times on the way for scheduled restroom break, always at clean and well-equipped facilities. Carlos M. was a fantastic guide, teaching us about ancient as well as modern day Mayan communities and pointed out many important and informative facts about the areas we drove to and from Chichen Itza and answered all of our questions readily. We got to Chichen Itza early, not waiting in lines or being heavily solicited by the numerous vendors of trinkets and souvenirs who typically get there and set up a little later. Carlos M. offered us an amazing personalized tour, talking about each of the monuments. We enjoyed the planetarium experience, relating the history of the Mayan people as well as the shaman who shared some ancient healing rituals with us.The tour culminated in a delicious buffet lunch with a show including Mexican dancers at the Mayaland Resort. After a short shopping experience, we all headed back to our resorts, with Carlos M. sharing more information about Mexican history, Mayan culture, pointing out modern day Mayan communities. Getting back to our resorts before dinner time was definitely an advantage as well. This was an excellent tour, well worth the early start to the day. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Overall excellent experience and highly recommended. Juan Carlos was our driver and guide. Driver and van were on time to hotel pickup. Van was clean and comfortable. There were plenty of drinks, including beer. Breakfast was a ham/cheese sandwich, granola bar, apple, and juice box. Juan Carlos gave an excellent tour and answered questions knowledgeably. It was great to get to the site early, when there weren't as many people and it wasn't as hot. We did not feel rushed. Had time to take photos. Buffet lunch at Mayaland had large variety of foods, including Mayan/Mexican and international foods. Alcoholic beverages were included. Got back to Cancun around 3:30pm.
It was great getting there early and having some time that was slightly cooler. It was as good as expected but we would have liked a little spare time to wander on our own. We were expecting that because the trip said that we would have use of the hospitality suite, pool and towels but we didn't. We had an hour for lunch then we were whisked away. September 2016
Having a small group was great. The tour guide, Carlos was extremely informative. Our bus driver, Hilario was a very careful, conscientious. The sack breakfast was good. The buffet luncheon was great. Would definately recommend.
Loved this tour! Our group guide was awesome, so knowledgeable and friendly! The ruins were beautiful and well worth the early time and extra money to beat the crowds! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
Chichen Itza was fantastic. We had a expert guide, who was very knowledgeable. The only issue was that the guide went very fast and was hard to keep up with. Near the end, my wife fell down and the guide was nowhere in sight. He later found us after finishing the tour and taking the other tourists back to the starting point. There was also a presentation about Mayan culture in a planetarium and a very nice lunch.
loved the tour and guides were excellent. the problem was that the van was uncomfortable and bumpy__i have some back issues anyway and this ride did not help.
