Know More about this tour

Your full-day tour begins with hotel pickup in Merida at around 9am. From there, you'll drive towards Izamal to get a thorough tour of the city. This colonial city is known as the city of hills and it's located right in the middle of the peninsula. Some say it could be considered the oldest colonial city.

It contains five pyramids with the main one being Kinich Kakmo, as well as the rabbit, and izamatul kabul. You will visit these pyramids and learn all the history about them. The city is considered a colonial jewel because all the buildings are painted yellow and the main attraction is the convent of Izamal, which was built on the land where a Mayan pyramid was built on, using the stones of this pyramid for its construction. 

Walk around the streets and learn about its founder, Fray Diego de Landa, who was famous for burning the indigenous writings. The tour includes a professional guide and tickets to the former convent, a horse carriage ride, parking and travel insurance.

  • If I could rate this a zero I would. First, they were a half an hour late picking us up. The guide was supposed to be able to speak English, not really. Maybe a few words. Could not understand full sentences of what he was saying. Took an hour detour to some store not on the agenda so people could buy shirts? Finally got to the destination and he did not guide us, we had to just explore on our own since we could not understand him. When we wanted to go to the museum, we had to go search for the guide so he could pay the 50 cent entrance fee. We should have just paid it ourselves and saved the search. Then he had us all gather in a group. He spoke Spanish the whole time and seemed to make jokes at our expense, then everyone laughed at us. No idea what he said. Then we followed the group to horse drawn carriages, the driver spoke absolutely no English. We were put in the back of the carriage with another person sitting in front of us with the driver so we pretty much could not see anything. Once that was done, we wandered around the town square for about an hour until we were called back to the bus. We ended up leaving Izamal and hour early. So, cut off an hour and a half start late, end early and then and hour detour. It was horrible and scary.
