Wander on foot past famous pyramids such as Kukulkan while you listen to riveting commentary about the former Maya inhabitants. Then swim in a cenote, a limestone sinkhole filled with crystalline water. Lunch plus a tequila factory visit are included in your full-day itinerary.
This tour was fantastic! Our driver was Adrian and our guide was Alberto. We were so fortunate to have them as our guides. As it was a private tour, they went at a pace we chose and customized the tour for us giving offering many options. Alberto was so knowledgeable and provided us the history of all the places we visited. We were able to spend as much time as we wanted for things that interested us. We were also able to swim in the Cenote which was also a great experience. Ek Balam was smaller and less crowded. Although there were a few vendors they were all located in one area and were very pleasant people. Chichen Itza was extremely interesting and facinating, learning the Mayan culture and beliefs. The biggest drawback were the hundreds of vendors that lined the walkways, sometimes blocking the paths and harassing the tourists. Alfredo informed us why this was occurring and the park itself had no control over the vendors. Overall, although it was a long day, it was extremely enjoyable! If you go on this tour please request Alfredo and Adrian!
