Loved this tour! Picked up on time in a mini-van very comfortable and AC. Once we got to Chichen Itza, we had the offer to either pay the admission fee only 230 pesos or 13 USD, or admission w/ lunch buffet combo 27 USD. You also have the option to get a guided tour however, we did not choose that option. We were then taken to our Hospitality Suite, very nice bathroom and huge lounge area. This is where we left all our bags and extra stuff You have access to the suite during your entire time there. After that, we entered Chichen Itza and basically explored at our own pace which we loved!. If you are looking for a detailed history lesson, I suggest doing the guided tour. If you are okay with understanding the basics and exploring the sight then this tour is perfect. The buffet was average and you have to pay 2 USD or 40 pesos for drinks. We tried to bring our water bottles and they did not let us bring them in. Basically you have to buy a drink in the place. After lunch, we just hanged around the pool area until it was time to go. Overall, I had a great time and I highly recommend this tour if you just want to explore Chichen Itza without feeling rushed or have a guide that talks too much.
Value for money
Fantastic place to be, and enough time for you to walk around and take pictures/videos, picnic ect. There are options to have a tour guide at various prices, dependent on the time you want them for but you do not need one. They tried to up-sell one to us and even went as far to state that there would not be any translated scriptures, however, there was/are.
We traveled around and made most of our time, took food from our hotel so we could have a mini picnic. There are places you can buy snacks and drink. There are plenty of tour groups around and to be honest, with that many, we just hopped from one to another to get a little bit of a history lesson.
The only negatives are that there was plenty of stalls and sellers with people trying to stop you at every step. However, this is a great place to buy souvenirs as there are all hand-made onsite. We saw various people carving from wood making beautiful pieces, these guys are skilled and the prices are value for money. We only spent around 3/5 for a couple of magnets and stone chichen itza. We received some valuable information too regarding the prices, because they are made on site they are cheaper, and when sold outside it includes taxes ect, makes sense and was true.
The journey was very long and although the driver was friendly, he kept ignoring my wife's request to turn the air-con off, by the time we got home she was frozen.... and traumatized. BUT i would recommend this excursion to anyone.
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
