  • Great tour, we stopped at a popular denote afterwards so bring a bath suit and towel! We had access through the side gate into Chichen Itza, which beats the hectic front gate apparently. Then we got to eat at a hotel buffet afterwards, with much variety and traditional dances.

  • Great English speaking guide Wilbert. This tour uses the Mayaland hotel as base, from which access to the site is quick and convenient. We where there at 11am which was perfect. not too busy The hotels buffet lunch was included and very good. Great tour!

  • Right from the beginning, our tour guide Wilbur put our small group of 8 at ease. The resulting trip exceeded our expectations. We were picked up on time and had an easy drive to Chichen Itza. Wilbur was empathetic, humorous, and knowledgeable as he took us to major points at Chichen Itza, encouraging questions and providing us with welcome history. We then returned to Mayaland, a nearby luxury hotel for a lovely buffet lunch, then a brief stop at Cho-cho Story a chocolate store near the hotel, and on to X-Cajum, a nearby cenote for an unforgettable dip in this deep pool. Home at the end of the day, we were foot-weary but thrilled with the experience of seeing Chichen Itza with a sense of its history and culture, brought to life with the words of Wilbur. A and we would do this again.

  • When we have originally signed up, we chose an English speaking tour. It turned out that the tour is both for Spanish and English speakers. Our guide did his best to conduct the tour in both languages but as you can imagine this was very challenging. The tour didn't have a good flow and it seemed there was more information in Spanish, than English.
    The transportation was great - clean and comfortable. The lunch included in the tour we chose was good too - the restaurant offered many options International cuisine, vegetarian options etc,. We had an opportunity to visit the Cenote near by - it was a fun experience.

  • Good

  • Chichen Itza itself is over run with vendors hawking their Chinese made wares. It is crowded and not worth seeing twice. I am glad that I went once and the transportation and guides were good and well organized.

  • The trip was interesting-led by a bilingual guide. He told us lots of facts, but would go fro long spurts in either language. Shorter switches between languages would have been better. We learned informative vignettes about the Mayan cultural as we went through small towns on the way to Chichen Itza. The site was not too crowded for high season and there was enough shade to keep us out of the hot sun. On the way back to Merida our guide asked if we wanted to stop and see a Cenote, but neglected to tell us there was a fee connected with the visit.

  • Guide Fransisco gave a fun, well-oranized, and clear daylong commentaryhistorical, cultural, societalon this phenomenal Mayan site, with particular focus on debunking myths about how the Mayan people lived, worked, prayed, and played. We left Merida by 8:30 am, and returned by 5:30 pm, after a visit to Chchen Itza and a nearby cenote. Nice company, fun tour, and a great day.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We were picked up in a timely manner with a very nice, comfortable van. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and could answer all of our questions. We had VIP entrance into Chicken Itza, so we didn't have to wait in line to get in. I did feel a bit rushed to get to the restaurant before the rest of the tour groups, but I guess that's just what happens at a place this popular. It was very hot, so bring water! Lunch was a buffet and I enjoyed the fruit bar and the mexican rice and beans.
    Afterwards, our guide was more than happy to take us to a local cenote. It was about 20 minutes away going back towards Merida, and not crowded at all. The 70 pesos to get in was not included, but well worth the cool, refreshing water. Overall, a great trip and I highly recommend!
