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).

  • This a great tour. The guides were informative and prideful of their culture. My only complaint is the communication of the travel agency. I did not stay in a listed hotel so they emailed me a meeting hotel spot. On the morning of the trip, I was waiting, but no one arrived. I had to call the agency. Luckily we were going to a nearby city the next day that also offered departures so we were able to reschedule. Overall, the trip is worth it, but I was not impressed with the lack of communication of the travel agency. It gets complicated for those not staying in listed hotels.

  • We loved the tour to the temples at Chichen Itza! It was educational entertaining, mind-boggling perfect thing to share with my 16-year-old granddaughter! Thank you for having such fabulous tour guides who clearly love what they're doing!!

  • It's a long ride to Chichen Itza but our guide Luis made it pleasant by sharing such a vast wealth of knowledge about the Mayans. You could tell he is very passionate about what he does. We enjoyed the stops to one of the oldest churches and swimming in the Cenote! We had a brief down pour of rain while in Chichen Itza but according to Luis, it was probably a blessing since the sun is typically super strong and unbearable with the humidity. It was a great experience overall. Just plan for being gone from your hotel all day into the early evening. You can nap on the way back. :-

  • Ricardo has been a tour guide for over 25 years. His experience and pride in the Mayan culture resulted in an incredible tour of the ruins and rural Mexico. Thank you.

  • What a wonderful experience and great tour guide. We stopped at the Cenote first, had a buffet then to Chichen Itza. The only thing is that our tour guide recommended not to shop at Chichen Itza but at the store before which was expensive. Also stating they are building a high school for the Mayans and that's where the proceeds will go. You do not need receipts when you purchase items in Mexico just an FYI.

  • This was a great day! I enjoyed the tour at Chichen Itza and swimming in the cenote. We stopped at a Mayan market, which I would have been fine skipping.

  • Chichen Itza was amazing, guide was knowledgable!

    this is a long day. firstly lots of people to pick up then there are a few stops which not everyone potentially is interested. One of them being souvenir buying.

    Also arrived at Chichen Itza later in the day meaning it was fairly busy.

    The Cenote was really busy as well, and didn't feel we had enough time to eat and see Cenote. I would have preferred more time there over doing souvenir shopping for 30-45 mins.

    towards then end there is the drop offs to the various hotels.

    Overall it's a great day but a very long one.

  • Very informative!

  • excellent!

  • We used Cancun Vacation Experts.... Great Time! Bus was clean, up to date and every1 was very professional. Our Tour Guide was "Ricardo" ... Very informative, loves his job and great attitude. The trip is a must-do while in Cancun... Had a great time.
