What You Can Expect

Viator VIP: Chichen Itza Tour and Light and Sound Show Including Mayan Appetizers and Luxury Transport

Viator VIP: The Complete Chichen Itza Experience

After late-morning pickup from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel, sink into the soft seats of your luxurious Merceders-Benz minivan and enjoy the scenic 2.5-hour journey to Mayaland Resort. Venture within the highly acclaimed hotel to explore the fabulous facilities. If you want, you can access Viator's VIP on-site hospitality suite where you can relax after the tour.

Revitalized, immerse yourself in the ancient majesty of Chichen Itza; sail straight past the long lines and stroll through your own private entrance with your guide. Begin your tour at the iconic Kukulcán Pyramid, a colossal structure that boasts 365 steps representative of each day in the solar year. Imagine a thriving city of ancient Mayans as you wander amid ancient temples like the Temple of Warriors, gaining fascinating insight into an extinct empire. 

In the late afternoon, take a seat at your table on the private bar terrace of Mayaland Resort and taste delicious Mayan tapas. Sip margaritas made with zesty limes and tangy salt as you watch the sun set over the ancient structures of the park. Afterwards, visit the BE Maya Planetarium to learn about the secrets of the stars and space

Board a free shuttle and re-enter Chichen Itza to view the park from an alternative perspective. Take a seat for the light and sound show and watch dramatic lighting and advanced mapping projection techniques illuminate the 1,500-year-old Kukulcán Pyramid and offer insight in the turbulent history of the Mayan civilization. 

After the show concludes, return to your air-conditioned minivan and settle in for the journey back to Cancun or Riviera Maya. Enjoy a box dinner (select from either a steak-and-avocado baguette, chicken breast or vegetarian option) then sit back until you reach your destination.

I have been to Chichen Itza three times now and this tour is hands down the best way to see it. The value is great, the guides are the most knowledgeable and just everything was perfect. The Mercedes Passenger Vans are so much more comfortable than the buses and walking around was much better as you could easily hear the guide and did not get lost in the crowd. I can not recommend this tour enough!!

I can not recommend this tour enough! This tour has truly a fantastic treat, it turned me into a Viator loyalist! You get picked up in a Mercedes and it is just you and whoever you are going with. It was a completely private tour. Our guide was just fantastic and full of history.

We booked the tour thinking that we would have a small group. To our surprise we were the only people going. Carlos our driver and guide was on time in a really nice Mercedes My wife and I was treated to an awesome tour. Although the tripe to Chizen Itzel took several hours Carlos made sure that all of our needs and questions were answered Mayaland tours really did a great job. When I return I will certainly use there company and will request Carlos as our guide. The best tour I have had. Thanks Mayaland and of course Carlos.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Tour was excellent and that is all due to our fabulous Tour Guide Maurice and Driver Pedro. I rate the tour experience 5. The appetizers, tapas, drinks 4 and the box lunch 3.
Tour Guide knowledge of the Mayan culture, the temples and just his general insight is truly note worthy and exceptional. The night light show was unbelievably beautiful. The only regret was that the headphones were not made available, but the information given to us previous to the show from our guide made watching without headphones bearable because of all the information he laid out to us. This is truly a must see/do before leaving Cancun.

Everything was perfect - the weather, the food, the entertaining, the trip, the time at Chichen Itza, the driving back and forth but the absolute top of the mast was our driver and guide Mauricio. We had a very good time with him and I hope one day I will see him again.
Thank you Mauricio and best regards from Florida,

Maurice, our guide, was extremely informative, educational and a blast to hang out with on this tour! He was extremely accommodating and extremely helpful in explaining things! The tour itself was amazing especially the light show at the end. It and #39;s a long ride from our hotel in Cancun but worth it!
