Worth the early morning rise...guide was incredible
This was our favorite tour on this trip! Marco was our guide and he was phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable and we could tell he was passionate about his work. The early access was worth it and I would recommend this tour to anyone.
To Chichen Itza. This tour is great for individuals who like an early start to an activity/tour 6 AM. The tour is also for those who want only a one of, one event or place to go to with an expert guide/professional Marco, Amigo Tours in the field of Mexican archeology and history. So here is what you get best price compared to many other tours, early start to your day, totally knowledgeable professional commentary and discussion, great humour, first class transportation, first into the site, exit when all other tours are arriving in 9 AM out by 12:45, back to PDC by 4:30 PM, two potty breaks along the way, lunch stop to pick up bag lunch on the way back very basic sandwich, fruit , juice. This was our third tour to Chichen Itza our adult grand kids had not been, also the best of the three tours thanks to Marco. This was a five star tour, early start, first class transportation, excellent commentary and discussion, early return, total satisfaction.
Great day out - early access was great and made the early departure from the resort well worth it. Frank our guide was great and made the tour very interesting and filled with the history of the mayans along with the coach driver Rafa made this a perfect day. This is one of 5he best value tours I have been on during all my travels and even included a packed lunch on the coach back to our resort.
The tour exceeded all of my expectations. Marco, our archaeologist/guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and personable - he has ruined me for all future tours because of his exceptional scholarship, humor, and storytelling skill I felt transported back to Mayan times. Our driver, Antonio, made sure we had a smooth ride, and the buffet lunch at the end was exactly what we needed after 3 hours walking in the sun. I would recommend bringing sunscreen and a small parasol - I rented a parasol but it was very large and I accidentally hit Marco in the head at one point so sorry about that.... I would also recommend lots of water. If you want to visit Chichen Itza, the only right way to do it is with Marco and Antonio and the early access pass there were large crowds forming just as we were leaving.
We truly appreciated the tour.
Marco our guide was in our opinion the most passionate and knowledgeable guide that we have ever had over years of touring throughout the world.His knowledge of Chichen Itza and his openness to share it and answer any and all questions made it an amazing tour.
Srs. Super Frank and driver Tony were awesome guides. Felt totally safe on the long drive to/from Chichen Itza. Learned so very, very much from Frank. I was super interested in the topic of Mayan culture anyway just read the book 1491 by Mann but Frank made the explanation of how people lived and what they were probably like so understandable - for the most part same human instincts that we have today - people are people. The only kink in our trip was that we are staying in Cozumel for a few weeks and there is no ferry early enough to get us to Playa del Carmen for a 6:00 pickup at central hotel so we had to stay the night before the trip in a Playa hotel. But it was well worth that extra expense. I wouldn't have missed it for anything. I don't have time to repeat all the good things others have said about Frank and the value of this trip - but I second them all.
Absolutely worth the early rise, beat the heat and the crowds. Marcos was our guide, he was incredibly knowledgable about Mayan culture and Chichen Itza's history. The tour was a good mix of guided tour and personal time, we learned a lot and had a great time! Would highly recommend this tour.
I'm so glad that I booked this tour. Marco was an amazing guide and so knowledgeable about the Mayan culture and Chitchen Itza. Getting there early was definitely the way to go, no crowds or queuing on entry, just amazing views of Chitchen Itza and the surrounding area without millions of others tourist ruining your pictures.
On leaving Chichen Itza, when everyone else was arriving, we went to a mayan village for a traditional lunch.
Overall a fantastic trip with an amazing guide, definitely a must do whist on holiday in Mexico.
I did not book ahead for this tour before arriving in Mexico and had not problem making reservations on-line after arriving at our resort. Because of the early access, our pick-up was scheduled for 5:10 am before other pickups. The tour bus was comfortable and was able to sleep after we transferred to the bus. Our guide Frank was 5th generation Mayan and friendly, informative and provided insights into Chichen Itza and Mayan culture. Getting to the ruins early to avoid the crowds that arrived as we were leaving was well worth the early morning rise. The included lunch buffet at a nearby establishment was good.
