This was a fantastic way to see Chichen Itza from Merida. They pick you up and bring you back to your hotel. Nice buffet at a quaint hotel on site. Guide was knowledgeable and patient with guests that were taxing. Excellent price and an amazing experience all around. Listen to what they advise about the heat! You will need water, a hat, and or an umbrella as the sun and heat are relentless.

Great English speaking guide Wilbert. This tour uses the Mayaland hotel as base, from which access to the site is quick and convenient. We where there at 11am which was perfect. not too busy The hotels buffet lunch was included and very good. Great tour!

Right from the beginning, our tour guide Wilbur put our small group of 8 at ease. The resulting trip exceeded our expectations. We were picked up on time and had an easy drive to Chichen Itza. Wilbur was empathetic, humorous, and knowledgeable as he took us to major points at Chichen Itza, encouraging questions and providing us with welcome history. We then returned to Mayaland, a nearby luxury hotel for a lovely buffet lunch, then a brief stop at Cho-cho Story a chocolate store near the hotel, and on to X-Cajum, a nearby cenote for an unforgettable dip in this deep pool. Home at the end of the day, we were foot-weary but thrilled with the experience of seeing Chichen Itza with a sense of its history and culture, brought to life with the words of Wilbur. A and we would do this again.

We were picked up in a timely manner with a very nice, comfortable van. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and could answer all of our questions. We had VIP entrance into Chicken Itza, so we didn't have to wait in line to get in. I did feel a bit rushed to get to the restaurant before the rest of the tour groups, but I guess that's just what happens at a place this popular. It was very hot, so bring water! Lunch was a buffet and I enjoyed the fruit bar and the mexican rice and beans.
Afterwards, our guide was more than happy to take us to a local cenote. It was about 20 minutes away going back towards Merida, and not crowded at all. The 70 pesos to get in was not included, but well worth the cool, refreshing water. Overall, a great trip and I highly recommend!

Our tour guide/driver, Israel, was very knowledgeable and personable. He fluently switched between English and Spanish, and despite it was a very hot day, he always found a shade for us to listen to his explanation of the amazing Mayan history. We were picked up between 8am-9am, and drove for about 2hrs to the Chichen Itza site. We were on site for about 2hrs. I wish I had a little more site to explore the ground. We had a buffet lunch at the on-site restaurant food included, but not drinks.

We all decided to go to Cenote nearby, so Israel took us on this extra trip. It wasn't part of the tour, so we paid 80 pesos for an entrance and watched people jump into the giant well I didn't have a swimsuit with me for 1hr, then we went back to Merida around 5pm-6pm. There was another van transporting a group to Cancun area. Since Chichen Itza is located between Merida and Cancun, it's a good way to travel. Chichen Itza itself was amazing, and I'm glad I went on this excursion, but personally, I liked Uxmal/Kabah excursion better because there were fewer people and no vendor on the ground to take it away from the ancient atmosphere experience. At Uxmal, we were able to climb up the smaller ruin as well, which we can't do at Chichen Itza. Overall, this was a good trip to take in the UNESCO world heritage site.
