Enjoyed the tour. Early Morning the site is beautiful, not as hot, and busy. Frank our tour guide kept us well informed,while allowing enough time to walk around and take photos.
Carlos and Marcos were AMAZING! So knowledgeable and shared his own thoughts about things, but let you still form your own opinions. The early access was EXCELLENT since it got to be so hot, even in the early morning when we arrived. It was worth it to get there early and get pictures before a lot of other people were there. It was super hot! When they suggest renting an umbrella, I would definitely take them up on it. Buy water at the store before you go out into the tour it is worth it. The market was fun to walk around and buy things and you can haggle with the vendors for cheaper prices.
So happy that we went on the early access to Chichen Itza. Everything about it was perfect. Frank, our guide, was very knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend this tour.
They were not lying when they said EARLY access....at first i grumbled at the 5am pick up....but OMG it was WELL WORTH IT!!!! the information and history behind this place is amazing!!! i didnt really know what to expect when i booked this tour and i am blown away!!! i will recommend this to ANYONE wanting to visit chichen itza. You get there before the crowds and the sun ..omg the sun!!! please walk with sun screen! if you book any other tour and a later time i think the crowd may have ben discouraging as well as it would only get hotter!!
Frank was great telling about the history, he gave us time to take photos and explore on our on as well. The driver was safe. It was definitely better to go in the morning when it was cooler and not a lot of people. Wish we could have still climbed the temple and gone inside, but Frank did show us some pictures of the inside. Take this trip, it was less time spent wasted, and cheaper than what our resort was offering!
This was amazing! Well worth getting up early, avoiding the crowds and the HEAT!! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the ruins.
Carlos our driver was on time, safe and very helpful with questions. Marcos our tour guide was amazing! He very knowledgable and took his time answering questions. He showed a genuine passion and appreciation for the Mayan culture. Our 4 children were engaged and learned so much! Perfect!
Marco Antonio was AWESOME. I wish I would have recorded the whole thing bc it was so detailed and well explained. Definitely want to return. Take umbrella, fan, and sunblock- it and #39;s HOTTT. Also, soak it in- less pics more observations. Really amazing place.
Frank was a perfect tour guide. He did a good job of explaining Mayan religion and how the temple complex was used to perform various rituals. Early access is the only way to go. There was hardly anyone there. When the tour was over the place was crawling with other tourists and trinket venders.
love it.. was early and kind of quick.. it was just what we wanted!
This was a great tour. There was a problem with my pick up which gave me the wrong time, so I had to pay for a cab to get to the tour bus. What made it just a remarkable tour company was that Viator made it right and refunded me the cab fare..To me, the exceptional service part of it is after you've paid. Viator made it right after the purchase. From now on, Viator will be the only tour company I will use when traveling abroad. Good job guys!
Frank was brilliant. I am so happy we sucked it up and woke up early for his tour. It was well worth it! Frank was a world of knowledge with plenty of interesting facts to tell. Frank and Ramon were super friendly and very professional. I highly recommend you book the ruins tour with them!
Visit to Chichen Itza was brilliant. The guide was an archaeologist called Frank and was very informative. He demonstrated effects at the site that I never knew. He was extremely considerate of people and #39;s welfare in the very hot temperatures. The coach driver Jacinta was also very good.
Espectacular! Desde el transporte hasta los guias y el lugar, todo estuvo maravilloso! Una experiencia inolvidable. Es importante el llegar temprano , como lo provee este tour ya que si no, el sl se pone bien dificil. Recomendamos este tour sin duda alguna!!!
Everything about this tour was excellent. The driver, Carlos, was courteous and skillful. The tour guide, Marco Antonio, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave the impression throughout that he was genuinely concerned that the tourists learned about Chichen Itza and the Mayan culture while enjoying the experience.
Of course, the ruins themselves are a must-see.
Frank was an excellent, knowledgeable, and humorous tour guide and Mayan archeologist. Enjoyed everything about the tour. Got in before the crowd, which was nice because we had plenty of photo opportunities. Hacienda, bus driver, was great. Got us there and back safely.
Our guide was fantastic. He was punctual, very informative and had a great attitude and sense of humor. I'm glad I chose to do the early access tour because Chichen Itza gets HOT - no exaggeration. By the time we were leaving around noon, and most other tours were just arriving, it was getting to be about 100 degrees.
Went with our 2 sons 9 and 15 and we all agreed this was the highlight of our vacation. Our guide was entertaining and obviously cares very much about the history of his culture. Doing the early tour is a must if you want to see the architecture without being harassed to buy souvenirs everywhere you turn.
Frank and Ramon were great! Frank was very knowledgeable and provided us with a great tour filled with information. He knows the ins and outs very well and showed us a lot. The tour was a little large and he did a great job explaining where we needed to be and when. I would highly recommend this tour. As a bit of advice, the bus can get hot and if you weren't hot by then, you will be once you get to Chichen Itza. I would highly recommend an evaporative cooling cloth and the standard sun-screen, hat, cool clothes and bug spray.
Our tour guide Frank and driver Ramon were excellent. I was a little skeptical about Amigo Tours because of the reviews. The tour guide was extremely informed and willing to share as much info as we wanted to learn. The drive was great to and from Our hotel. Clean/new bus. Bring/buy lunch at Itza
