Booked the day before we went. Picked us up from the hotel at 7am and we were back by 330pm. Comfortable bus, great tour guides, excellent trip!!
This was a great trip through Amigo Tours via Viator. Samuel and Marcus shared their knowledge and passion. We normally would book through the travel company but this trip was half the price and more than worth it. We would definitely use them again. Thank you for a wonderful experience and sharing the history of your country.
Amazing place. Beautiful architecture. The guide was very knowledgable about the Mayan city and culture. I have long wanted to visit this site and your tour was just the ticket to experience the site and learn about Mayan culture.
We had an amazing trip to Chichen Itza. Our tour guide was Samuel. He was very funny and knowledgeable. He took the time during the trip to teach us about the Mayan civilization on our way there showing us many things that won't describe here so you can discover it on your own.
Samuel engaged people to participate but more importantly shows us a very interesting world total different from ours nowadays.
If you are the kind of person you don't like crowded places, this is the tour for you. My wife and I had plenty of time to go around by ourselves to take photos and buy souvenirs. There were only few groups that it felt we had the place only for us. We left around 12:15pm and by that time, the place was getting crowded but we were leaving.
We did not hit traffic on our there or back and we got back to the hotel at 2:30pm. We rested on the bus so we had plenty of time and energy to do more stuff during the day. We really liked it a lot. Very informational and convenient. We highly recommend this tour!
Very early morning tour and worth it being no crowds when we arrived.
On improvement side, driver for pick up was late and left but did NOT leave instructions on how to catch main bus for tour. We made it by calling main number. Instructions on voucher were incorrect on bus pick up location.
This tour was arranged through Amigotours, with our English speaking Archaeologist Marco, he opened our minds to what the Mayan people had managed to achieve especially their mathematics and understanding of the universe especially the way the year was broken up into astrological events. Getting to the site early was definitely a bonus as it was so easy to move around and take in the sure scale of the ruins. My only criticisms on the tour, were we hadn't been informed that it was a 3 and a half hour drive to the site from Cancun, making it 7 hours on a coach. This was was further compounded by an additional half hour lay over in Puerto Cancun awaiting a feeder bus, which is something Amigo tours need to address to be a bit more slicker.
Marco was an excellent guide. It was great to arrive so early and miss the crowds and heat.

This was a great tour to beat the crowd. Bus pick us up at exactly 5:15 am at our hotel. We had to make a stop to pick up other people. Bus was clean and comfortable, slept going to Chichen itza and had a washroom stop in between. Our tour guide Frank was knowledgeable and funny. The tour was too hot we did some sight seeing on our own, and had one hr to grab lunch while waiting for the meeting time. Brown bag was given for sandwich, juice and banana, included in the tour. And cold bottle water were provided going back to the bus.
The tour was brilliant. Would highly recommend. Frank was great - super knowledgeable and good sense of humour! Thanks also to our driver Jacinto! We were picked up at 5am from our resort, they let us sleep for the first hour or so and then for the second half of the bus journey we got lots of information and background about the Mayan people. It was really interesting.
We also got a lunch included - a sandwich, banana, juice box and snack bar.
Everything Frank said was true - we were one of the first tours to arrive, Chichen Itza wasn't hot, it was super super super hot, and when we left there were loads and loads of people arriving. The early access tour is definitely a great idea - and we're so glad we did it.
You can hire umbrellas to help protect from the sun. Make sure you take sun cream and wear loose clothing! It's a sweaty day! There is a cafe, a snack bar and a shop at the entrance to Chichen Itza, so you can buy stuff there. There's also lots of vendors there selling souvenirs.
Thank you so much Frank and Viator - we really enjoyed the trip, it was really interesting and would definitely recommend to others. Another Wonder of the World ticked off the bucket list! :
The tour was amazing! The guide is very knowledgeable and interesting, and I wouldn and #39;t have done it any other way. We would have missed out on a lot of interesting facts about this incredible place without the guide. Overall, the tour is very affordable for what you get out of it. Definitely worth it
