As one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza is a must-see, and the extremely knowledgeable guides on this tour will help you discover why. You also get free time to explore these well-preserved Mayan ruins at your own pace.
Overall a wonderful experience! The Chichen Itza tour was full of Mayan history and culture. Our English speaking guide, Ricardo had so much information to share and was very enthusiastic. I appreciated the explanation and warning about the vendors in Chichen Itza. This also encouraged and validated my purchases at the pre-Chichen Itza stop, a Mayan souvenir shop. I was happy to directly support the Mayan community rather than an unknown vendor. In addition to this itinerary we stopped by a cenote where the included buffet was offered. The actually cenote was amazing and refreshing after our hike through the hot Chichen Itza site. The buffet was of lower quality with minimal variety but I did not book this trip for the food!. Our final stop was through a French/Spanish influenced colonial town. Here there were more traditional Mexican food vendors but the stop was short less than 20 minutes.
If you take this tour be prepared to be on the move. The guide will show and discuss a few places within Chichen Itza and then youll have about 30 minutes to explore yourself. The guides do a great job of letting you know how to exit the site and where the rendezvous points are. If you like to be leisurely or do not want to listen to a tour guide this may not be the tour for you. I thought there was the right amount of time spent at each place within Chichen Itza and throughout the day. About 1.75 hours at Chichen Itza, 1.5 hours at the cenote and a brief stop in the Mexican town. Transportation pick up is available at a selection of major hotels. I did not stay at one, however in my reconfirmation email to Viator, I was able to coordinate which hotel to be picked up from. On the return back to Playa the driver was able to drop me off at my Airbnb and save me a short walk.
Highly recommend this trip. If you can follow directions and are respectful you can really sit back and enjoy the experience.
Very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide!!
Our tour guide Martin is very knowledgeable and helpful, so is the English guide Marco we had in chichen itza.
Don and #39;t think the Mayan village part is necessary, but like all the other parts of this trip a lot!
We loved this tour. They were on time with picking us up and communicated on where to meet us. Our guide was awesome. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We only had a short time in Playa del Carmen and this tour was great to get to see some ruins, experience a cenote and see a Spanish influenced town. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great trip! Small van/bus with about 18 people. Guide was fantastic. We all loved it!!
