  • Chichen Itza is a must to see and we had a great guide who is passionate about the history. She was bilingual to such an extent that it was just a little difficult to hear where she changed from Spanish to English and some of the scandinavian travellers felt they would have preferred a single language tour.
    The other downside is that from Tulum we had a 2 hour pick up before we got started and I think if we hadn't come straight back to Tulum from the Cenote at the end I too would have been a bit miffed.
    That said, the lunch stop and visit to the Mayan cooking area and shop was brilliant. The restaurant was clean, the buffet food tasty and extensive and the staff friendly and helpful.
    Our guide warned us that the site at Chichen Itza was full of 3 families of over 1000 souvenir sellers so we were prepared but the continuous sound of fairground type barkers including hundreds selling a conch type thing that sounded like a dog barking is something the custodians need to address. They should take a look at Tulum Ruins where you pass through the Disney and souvenir area on your way in and out but the Mayan historical area is wonderfully relaxing and able to be enjoyed in relative peace.
    The Cenote was very interesting too and if it hadn't been raining I think more of us would have walked down inside and swum. Our loss.
    Overall a very good trip and one not to be missed.

  • I would suggest calling the phone number given to confirm a specific pick up time and place. The tour reps gave us reliable information and we showed up at our pick-up time and place. We were picked up right on time! I appreciate that. We made a stop at a resort in Playa Del Carmen and then we picked up our tour guide off the road. That was weird but it's whatever. We went to a convenience store before heading into Valladolid for a 20 minute walk-around the colonial city. This tour makes a stop at another location we were not aware would happen but the tour guide was informative throughout so we weren't surprised when we'd make a stop. Chichen Itza was beautiful! We did 20 minutes of exploring/taking pictures, then our tour guide walked us through the history for 45 minutes, and then he gave us another 45 minutes to explore some more. And then afterwards we went to Ik Kil cenote. 30 pesos for a locker, 30 pesos for a life vest. I wish we had more time at Ik Kil but only had 45 minutes. The lunch was after all the activities and we were starving as it was close to 3pm by the time we ate our lunch. Overall a great tour!

  • The tour operator was good.
    However, the company that Viator booked through Cancun Vacation Experts was very difficult to get hold of and after 2 days of trying to contact them, when I finally did they provided incorrect pickup information, i.e. said would pickup up at 6:20 AM and the tour operator showed up at the hotel at 7:30 AM.
    There was miscommunication between the company that the trip was booked through and the actual tour operator. It seems like there are so many 3rd parties involved and it was unclear who to contact when they showed up an hour late.

  • The tour itself was good, but a bit rushed. The driver and tour guide were great. Unfortunately, we felt we got ripped off at the Mayan village which is more of a commercial shopping experience. From talking to people at our hotel and exploring other parts of the area, we realized that the cost of items in their store is so overpriced and wish we were told by the tour guide instead of being encouraged to buy and support. Would much rather have preferred to spend my 80USD two small items in local villages, not tourist destinations.

  • Great tour booked via Viator. Though would recommend that do only Chichen Itza skip the lunch if possible as it becomes too long and tiring. Need more time in Chichen itza. The local company and guide was very knowledgeable although trying to sell local wares at the lunch place which not unusual but can be avoided.

    Overall a great trip and must do trip to one of the new seven wonders.

  • This was great! We were picked up at our hotel. We called the day the before we used our hotel's concierge service to call to get an exact pick up time and location. They were a few minutes late. We rode in a fairly uncomfortable vehicle, but seemed to be the standard van for the area. But there were only 8 of us total in the group, so it wasn't that big of a deal. We stopped somewhere to buy souvenirs and in the city of Valladolid. We then proceeded to our cenote. It was neat, but crowded. I really enjoyed see somewhere filled with beauty. Chichen Itza was absolutely amazing. There were Mayan vendors all over selling things that were almost free. Our tour guide was bilingual and switched back and forth from Spanish to English smoothly and provided a lot of history as well. We loved this trip and would definitely recommend it to all.

  • This tour was great. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable . The only negative to this tour for me, was a stop in the small village to shop for local crafts. But that is only because I’m not much of a shopper and would rather have done more time in the Cenotes.

  • The tour was sold with hotel pick up and drop off from Tulum. This was not the case.
    We had to travel to a pick up point at 6.30am using a taxi.
    AND BEWARE...if we had not contacted the company the day before to check everything, we would have missed the tour completely as they do not contact you.
    We had people from Tulum hotels missing from our tour who did not arrive at the pick up point and i can only guess that they were still waiting to be collected outside there hotel!!??
    Once we met up with the bus, we then drove to 2 other HUGE hotels in Playa de Carmen to collect others yes, they were collected from the hotel. This added 1-2 hours to the journey.
    The tour guide and driver themselves were great and so were all the other tour members. We went to Valodolid and a Mayan shop enroute. We then went to a Cenote and had a buffet lunch which was refreshing. Then FINALLY we arrived at Chichen Itza some 8 hours after we left our hotel. To be fair it was interesting BUT by the time we arrived at CHI' we were already pretty exhausted and to then have a 2 hour tour was too much. I must thank the tour guide and driver for actually dropping us back to our hotel after a little persuading and 1st not via Playa first. all the guides and drivers are lovely but the day is far too long, especially for kids.

  • Denote Il -Kil and meal good . I was disappointed with tour around Chichen Itza the guide spent far to long talking about the Mayans and we saw very little of the site only looked at 3 buildings .If people want that much depth into Myans they can read it up themselves there was not much time left at end to go and look at other buildings ,never did get to see the Observertory. Also they really do need to cut down on the amount of sellers on site it is ridicules must be in the hundreds pestering you and all selling the same things. Have been to most of the wonders of the world and this was the most dissapointing.

  • Tour was good. Guide was entertaining and informed. Bus was small, but mostly comfortable and cool. The guy sitting behind my wife was the size of Hagrid, and didn't mind making it less comfortable for others than it could have been. The Cenote swim was very crowded, and not that enjoyable.
