Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour makes covering these top Yucatan attractions easier (and less expensive) than trying to arrange transportation independently, especially if you're traveling with your family or large groups. Bring a few pesos if you want to rent a locker or life jacket for easy floating at the cenote.
After early morning hotel pickup, travel with your guide to Valladolid, Yucatán’s third-largest city also called the Sultaness of the East. Get to know this quiet 16th-century city on a guided tour. Then enjoy a hearty buffet lunch and a chance to participate in the ancient Mayan purification ritual of Temazcal guided by a real shaman.
Then, head to the UNESCO-listed Chichen Itza, the city-cradle of ancient Mayans. During this tour, explore the area and gain insight into its top landmarks, including the Kukulkan pyramid, an astronomical observatory, and the ball court. Learn about the dangerous game of pok-ta-pok played by warriors. You’ll also have free time to enjoy Chichen Itza on your own.
Take a break from sightseeing with a swim in Ik-Kil, an underground cenote before ending the tour with drop-off at your Cancun hotel in the evening.

Good service but we were not offered the 2 bottles of water as described in Viator so we had to buy the water by ourselves. This was a big group in a 47 seat bus. The stay time in Valladold was too short and we were only able to have a glance at the church. The explanation of the guide was excellent. Generally speaking, the quality of the tour is equivalent to its price. If you expect a tour with higher quality, you should pay more.

Carlos and Susanna were our tour guides. They spoke perfect English and Spanish and offered information in both languages. The bus picked us up timely. While en route to Chichen Izta, Carlos provided the history and other interesting background information about the sites we were visiting. He also taught us a few Mayan words and phrases and explained the Mayan numerical system. The buffet lunch was delicious and provided many vegetarian options. We had the opportunity to purchase our Mayan Sol y Luna personality profiles at the Mayan village where we had lunch--a fun piece of entertainment! I definitely recommend this tour! And hopefully Carlos and Susanna will be your guides!

Good tour, accomodating staff. Would go with them again. Knowledgeable tour guide. Con: maybe they should skip the gift shop since they are the same souvenirs at Chichen Itza.

This is one of the best guided tour ever had. The best of all is the friendly crew, their archeological knowledge, guided tour, local food, delicious lunch buffet, destinations, timely allocation, comfort bus and amazing experience!

A long day but what a great day, pictures can't really do Chichen Itza justice you have to see it with your own eyes, amazing.Our tour guide Ricciardo was fantastic, very knowledgeable, funny, thoughtful and kind. My 11 year old son loved it all but his favourite part was the Ik Kil Cenote at the end of the day.

Very knowledgeable guide. A good tour to gain a small look at the Mayan history. Although a long day - well worth the journey.

We would have like to have spent more time in Valladolid. We were only given a very short time to visit and then rushed to get to lunch at an official gift shop/luncheon area where we joined many other groups for a subpar cafeteria style meal where we had three times the amount of extra time in their shop that we did in Valladolid. Our tour guide was informative and entertaining throughout the tour, especially when we visited Chichen Itza, and the teenagers liked swimming at Ik Kil, but the first half of the day could have been much better.

Resting in Cancun and not going to Chichen Itza - it's just barbarity. The tour is combined, it gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the typical colonial town of Valladolid, explore Chichen Itza and visit and swim in the Ik-Kil cenote. When you are in Chichen Itza, one immediately recalls Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Be sure to choose a tour with a visit to Ik Kiel cenote.
