Tour Chichen Itza in the early morning, when the site is less crowded, and gain essential historical and cultural background by visiting with a private archeologist. Hotel pickup and drop-off, entrance fees and box lunch are included, making this a great trip for families
Tour guides were very informative. Awesome trip.
It is a very interesting experience. History comes to you.
Everything went ok.
Enjoyed very much. Wished we could have stayed longer to wander around the additional sites and eat at the lovely restaurant. the box lunch provided was meager. It served better as a breakfast as we had to get picked up before there was time to eat. Suggest bringing an umbrella to provide some shade as it is very hot.
our guide was Frank and our driver was Lucio. Frank was fantastic, very knowledgeable and made this visit very interesting. Going early was the way to go. Even though we had to get up so early, it was worth it. I would recommend this to anyone.
Fantastic experience. I am so glad i chose this version if the tour. It starts early, you nap on the bus, and we got there literally first. By the time we left, there was swarms of people starting to show up. Marco, the guide, was spectacular, passionate, and organized.
Thanks to the family that we met at the airport in Cancun for recommending Viator and the EARLY tour !We can't begin to tell you how privileged my wife and I were to have Marco Solis archaeologist and anthropologist as our tour guide on November 23,2016. It's apparent that he fell in love with Chiche'n Itza as a small boy and that love guided him through his life - on to College to seek his Master's degree and then share the wealth of knowledge he possesses in such a way that YOU feel his passion and want to learn more about the Mayan culture. He is truly a gem and this was one of our BEST tours in the many places that we've traveled around the world!! Be SURE and book the EARLY tour and hopefully you will have Marco as your guide request him IF you can!!
Tour was amazing! Definitely take the early tour to get to the site before anyone else. Amigo tours was great, efficient and very knowledgable. Carlos and Marcos were great!
Carlos and Frank were awesome. Carlos was such a great driver and Frank was extremely informative in his discussions of the Mayan culture and Chichen Itza. We were picked up shortly after 5am from our hotel in the Hotel Zone, and were allowed to sleep for the two hour drive. We arrived at Chichen Itza at opening and found ourselves admiring the ruins with no one else around. This is the BEST way to see Chichen Itza. Bring sunscreen -- it's hot, even in mid-November. Overall, an amazing tour.

Carlos the driver and Frank the tour guide were amazing. It is about 2.5 hours from Cancun to Chichen Itza. There are no bathrooms on the bus, but we did make a stop for restrooms about 30 mins in. Bring sunscreen, bug spray and comfortable shoes. You have the option of staying with the group or going on your own. I would recommend staying with the group because out guide was of Myan descent, and he knew a lot about Myan culture. The bag lunch was a sandwich, juice, banana, and granola bar. When we first got to the park Frank gave us 15 mins. to take photos before the crowds started arriving. Over 15,000 people come to Chichen Itza a day, so this is why early access is crucial because we got there before the crowds and the heat of the day. We were picked up at out hotel at 5:30 am and arrived back at 3:10 pm. Once we got to Chichen Itza we were divided into groups based on language. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Our tour November 2016 to Chichen Itza was amazing. Our guide, Marco, was entertaining and very informative and he made our visit more than just a sightseeing event. During our bus ride, Marco presented some Mayan history and background of the site - in English and Spanish. While at Chichen Itza, his presentations were more than just explanations as he made each temple and building come alive with simple demonstrations.
We were picked up from our resort, north of Cancun proper, on time and the bus ride to Chichen Itza was comfortable.
The early access option beat the crowds and the heat. It was a good choice for us.
Wonderful time. Highly recommended.
