Know More about this tour

During your stay in Cancun, you simply must take the opportunity to visit Chichen Itza, the most important archaeological zone in Yucatan. After hotel pickup in Cancun, explore the ancient capital of the Mayan Empire and learn why it has been designated one of the modern wonders of the world. Its extraordinary architectural beauty and geographical location are sure to leave you in awe.

Your first stop is a 50-minute visit to either the Ik Kil cenote or Hubiku cenote. The cenote visited will depend on which area is less populated on the day of your tour. You'll have free time to explore this natural wonder, so be sure to bring along your towel and swimsuit! By 10:50, you'll head to the world famous archaeological site of Chichen Itza.

At approximately 12pm and once inside the archaeological site, you'll be divided into English and Spanish speaking groups for a guided tour. You'll be taken on a 1.5 hour tour with a certified guide who will introduce you to the secrets of the Mayans. Your guide will explain the historical significance of all the most important sites before leaving you to enjoy the ruins on your own until 3pm. See the Pyramid of Kukulkan, el Castillo (the Castle), the Temple of Warriors and much more. After exploring the site, you'll head to the local restaurant and enjoy a buffet of fresh salads, soups, rice, meat, chicken, fish, vegetables and other regional dishes (drinks at own expense). 

After lunch, you'll be transported back to your Cancun hotel.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed and the tour guide was excellent!

  • Very good tour. Very informational. Stops at a refreshing cenote and lunch afterwards prior to going to Chichen Itza. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun.

  • We took this trip few years ago. When we returned back to Cancun, I recommended friends to take this tour also. It is a group tour, so expected to waste sometime to gather tourist. Bring your swimsuit to swim in the connote. Chichen Itza is interesting. Recommend to visit this place in cooler season.

  • Our tourguide was amazing and knowledgable, I definitely recommend this tour. There were others at similar price points, but they had no guide.

  • The tour was great! Ricardo had a great energy and was very knowledgeable about the history, it is an ALL DAY thing, so be prepared, they really do cram a lot into a full day. The cenotes were beautiful and the lunch was the pretty delicious. I would definitely recommend booking with this company.

  • Mauricio was our historical and cultural expert and Martin was our driver. They arrived punctually at our hotel at the set time. Both took their roles very seriously and exceeded our expectations. Mauricio is multilingual. There were eight adults on the tour. Six people spoke Portuguese and we speak both English and Spanish. Mauricio's explanations flowed smoothly from one language to another without the repetition seeming tedious. His personal knowledge of the Mayan language and culture added much to the experience. We learned of the numerical system, religious practices, astronomy, influences of other cultures, architectural designs, etc. The tour started once we were all in the van so the transportation time was well-used. The stop at Valldolid was too short and could be skipped for this reason. Shopping at the cooperative was interesting with the presence of a Shaman to give out blessings. The stop at the Cenote was interesting. Those who wanted to swim were given sufficient time to do so. The trip included a buffet lunch which was adequate, but the seating was tight and the service was lacking. Chichen Itza is an amazing archeological site that should not be missed. Mauricio provides a in-depth look at the site and the culture. It is evident he enjoys his role. With the small number of participants, it is very much a personalized tour.

  • A full day tour that gives you a great insight into the Mayan culture. Our guide Ricardo was amazing. He entertained and informed us the whole day.

  • If every in Cancun I highly recommend this tour. Although you can no longer climb Chichen Itza it is spectacular.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Our tour guide Alex was funny and kind.
    The trip was great and worth the money.
    The only thing i would recommend they do differently is to go to Chichen Itza first then do the lunch/cenote, and Valladolid after.
