  • Stunning, enjoyable and amazing.....and wow the photo opportunities. Well worth doing early before everyone else. Excellent lunch as well.

  • The tour itself was great but after I booked it thru Viator there was absolutely no way to contact Viator to ask any questions.....
    They sent me information that was not clear as to whether I could use e vouchers or if I had to print the vouchers. Viator also sent me a phone number of the actual tour company that did not work. If you want to book this tour, contact Grayline directly and you will also save money. I tried everything I could to get a phone number for Viators customer service but was unable to get one.

  • This tour was a blast, kinda early departure for a vacation day but turned out to be worth it. The Mayan priest, lunch and departing before the heat got too bad made for a very enjoyable day.

  • We really enjoyed this tour. Of course we had to get up at o'dark thirty for our 4:50 am pickup but it was worth it as we arrived early before the crowds and the heat! Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed seeing all the sights and hearing about the history. We also got to see a planetarium show air conditioned! and had a private shaman ceremony. The buffet lunch was wonderful and the food was excellent. As were the ladies who danced for us with beer bottles and trays on their heads! There was a bit of free time to souvenir shop or take a dip in the pool. We were back at our hotel mid-afternoon with plenty of afternoon pool time left. The bagged meal we received during a bus break about halfway to Chitzen Itza was a very nice touch and saved us from having to scrounge up breakfast before we left.

  • Great tour! I would recommend. Juan Carlos is the unofficial Mayor of Chichen Itza He has a lot of knowledge and you are in good hands with him. Getting there early allows you to escape the brutal heat of the day and experience the ruins with very few people around. Both were worth the 4:45am pick up time. We were back in Cancun around 3:45pm. The lunch is a buffet, but the tacos are not to be missed. You have about an hour of free time to go back to the ruins or visit the vendors. I stuck around the hotel to grab a swim to cool off and got the see the resident peacock.

  • Getting there early in the day is the only way to go. No crowds and a smaller tour group. We had a nice bagged breakfast on our way to Chichen Itza then we met up with the rest of the tour group. Our guide was great at pointing out and explaining everything. Though his English was a bit hard to understand at times. My kids, aged 9, 17 and 19 all had a good time. Lunch was ok, but the staff was very helpful and pleasant.

  • I highly recommend this excursion. We arrived at the Chichen Itza ruins before many of the vendors, other tourists, and extreme heat had arrived. Furthermore, the buffet lunch was delicious with authentic Yucantanean-style cuisine. Out tour guide did an excellent job explaining the ruins and showed a real passion for teaching Mayan history.

  • Leaving Cancun very early was the best thing - I was picked up at 5am by the guide Mauricio and driver think Alex was his name guide very knowledgeable and has good sense of humor. He managed to get us into Chichen Itza first! we had about 10 minutes of it all to ourselves with great photo ops. Accessing via Mayaland resort entrance was great and the lunch meal at Mayaland was super as well as the dance entertainment during the meal. Only comment: I thought we would have time to swim at the Mayaland resort in the afternoon and/or return back to Chichen Itza itself if we wanted - think it stated that on the tour description. Instead we left just after lunch...

  • Highly recommend this tour starts before the crowds, The lunch was amazing and the detailed information is well worth the cost.
