We took a guided tour of Chichen Itza in January 2016 and found the guided tour to be great, however lacking in the ability to and #34;go at our own pace and #34; in terms of photography and awe. This tour was a perfect balance of assistance where needed, and hours of free time to go where we wanted.
Tour was amazing. Pickups were on time and our guide Mauricio was very knowledgeable, generous and helpful. I would definetly recommend Chichen Itza visit that is 2 hours drive but worth visiting.
Excellent service, I was with Rozando, Ilario and Yoshi...pick up arrived on time...and the hosts were amazing...the cute little resort exceeded my expectation...the buffet lunch was very much appreciated...made me feel very special..will recommend and definitely be back!!
This package is one of the best ways to do Chichen Itza no other way to do it, you get about 3 hours of free time and a small hut that has private bath and changing room and small shared living that you will share with other two people. They pack four to the hut, which is not bad.
This was our first tour in Cancun and it was very good. Our driver for the entire trip, William, arrived early and called the room to let us know he arrived. When we first stepped into the van it was very clean and smelled like cinnamon. I could tell William took pride in the appearance of the van. During the ride to and from Chichen Itza, William was very cautious and courteous and was always driving at the speed limit. At one point, he even swerved to miss an Iguana that was sunbathing on the highway.
Once we arrived, we were escorted to a room and given options to buy. I chose the buffet and tour guide option for a reasonable price. The guide was very informative and friendly. After the tour, we ate at the buffett. Most of the food was decent but the Mayan tacos were amazing. We spent the rest of the time at the pool before returning to our hotel.
Overall, the trip was well worth it. I would definitely do it again but try and do the earlier trip to avoid the heat and humidity of the afternoon.
Would highly recommend this tour very well planned and on time
We were very impressed with the trip, bus arrived on time, very comfortable seats. Took us direct to a hotel within Chichen Itza where we purchased our entrance tickets and then walked into the park through a back entrance so there were no queues to contend with. We had four and half hours to look round the ruins which took us two hours. If weather had been better we would have stayed longer. Went back to the hotel and had a very nice buffet lunch at a reasonable rate. The bus again left on time and took us back to our hotel. Would recommend this trip if all you want to see is Chichen Itza
This is the way to see Chichen Itza. We were picked up at our hotel in a very nice Mercedes van and were able to relax coming and going on the 2 1/2 hour ride from Cancun. Upon arriving the host assisted us in getting our admission tickets as well as a personal guide for our family of 5. That was a great value at about 40 USD and Charlie our tour guide did an exceptional job of teaching us about Chichen Itza. After touring we did enjoy the hospitality suite which was perfect even though we only had a short time there - refreshing and refreshments.
We enjoyed this excursion very much timely and comfortable transportation and very knowledgeable tour guide. Only difficulty was when paying for the admission/lunch/tour guide, the mobile card reader malfunctioned and my sister ended up paying in cash only to find out later that two charges DID go thru on her account. I believe it was poor internet service that accounted for the malfunctioning of the mobile card readers. We were in a pretty remote area of Mexico.
