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 12:00 pm you will be inside the archaeological site. You'll then 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 3:00 pm. 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.

    The Cenote was very nice and the best thing in my opinion. The thing that was most disappointing to me and my family was the tour guide explanation, that felt like a conversation preaching into his pagan beliefs. I recommend you find another tour wherein the guide will be more history base and more accurate.

    This is a great option if you want to visit the Chichen Itza, Valladolid, and have a quick 30-40 minute swim in a cenote. The cenote was quite busy and the lunch was not flavorful at all. Apart from that it was a great experience. The tour guide explains in English and Spanish.

    One of our tour guide maro was very knowledgeable I highly recommend. Traveled with 2 young kids and worried it if it would have been too much but it wasn’t

    Pickup at the hotel brings you to La Isla shopping mall to pay taxes and gather ppl from other buses. After an hour or so in the bus, the tour guide starts to give you background on the Mayans. Very good info. First stop is for lunch and shopping. Most of the items will be for sale at chichen Itza for less. The lunch was very good. Eat up. It's a long day that goes quickly. Then off to chicken Itza. 1hr guided tour goes very fast. Then one hour on your own. Now you should buy things. Lots of opportunities there. It'll be hot. They give you a water back on the bus. Then off to the cenote for an hour. Do it. Very refreshing and fun! Unique experience. Then off to Valladolid for 30 minutes. Neat town with the second oldest church in the Americas. Then a long drive back to the hotels. It's a long day but packed with good fun. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. Bring cash to purchase and tip.

    Trip was nice but it took too long (15 hours in total). Afterwards i got food poisoning and spent the whole night on the Toilette. Would recommend different tours

    The pickup was over 30 minutes late. The bus seats were extremely cramped for the 6HOURS we spent on it. The "upgrade box lunch" was ridiculously awful. I feel like I got scammed. Chichen Itza was beautiful, just don't use this tour group! Valladolid was ridiculous because they stopped in the middle of the street and kicked us off the bus while the police were arguing to get our bus moved. We had only 30 minutes to get food and try to find the bus. As a last stop before a 2.5 hr drive, it was completely useless. We didn't have time to find food and were hungry by the time we returned to hotel at 10:15pm! Additionally, as the cherry on top of this trash cake, they repeatedly lectured us on tipping high and only buying the highest price goods. They literally took 20 minutes at the end of the tour to lecture us on how their pay is structured and that it's our responsibility to take care of them. I've been to Mexico many times, and around the world a dozen, and I've never before been treated as poorly as this. DON'T USE THIS TOUR GROUP!

    Several information was not properly communicated hence had several concerns but the local staff helped to resolve everything. Local staff was very good u doubtfully but the support from Viator was not upto the mark however I received prompt response from Viator representative but not all info that was required to be known was shared upfront

    Best experience to see the real Mexico! The trip started with good lunch, restroom breaks, a lot of spanish to english translation, nice cenote experience and true town culture experience in Valladoid!

  • 09-Dec-2022

    Everything was memorable. Our tour guide was amazing and knowledgeable. The ruins were a work of art but my favorite part was definitely the cenote swim at the end. The day was long but I enjoyed every moment of it.
