My tour was AMAZING. OUR guide Layla was so knowledgeable and I didn't want her to stop talking. The transportation was clean and comfortable and I didn't feel rushed at any location. They really go out of their way to take care of you. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Rodrigo was a fantastic tour guide and made sure to give us the full history of the Mayans. Alfredo was a great driver and kept to the schedule as much as was possible. We really enjoyed swimming in the Cenote and touring Chichen Itza.

Absolutely wonderful tour with Layla from Amigo tours. The coach was comfortable. Layla was very knowledgeable and kind. I learned so much. It is a tour I would take again! The sites were stunning. The cenote we visited was so neat to explore. Chichen Itza is a remarkable place to visit. I recommend it to anyone who is visiting the region.

I did a tour with Rodrigo and Geronimo and it was great! Rodrigo told us a lot of cool facts and although we didn’t have a lot of time at each of the stops we were able to make the most out of it. It was funny and I can just recommend it!!

We enjoyed the tour and the guide a great deal. It does make for a Very long day with the amount of driving that’s necessary, but overall it was worth the time and price.

A great job by Cesar; Kevin and the captain! :) The trip was definitely worth the while, but the detour to see Valladolid was unnessecary and not good use of our time.

It is very hard to be in a good mood early in the morning, wet after rain cold and angry, the guides managed to turn around this tour for everyone. They created an amazing day of adventures, thank you.

My day started off horrible. My travel mate got drunk the night before and didn't make it on the bus. As a female traveling alone in Mexico several hours from my resort I was petrified!!! Marco the tour guide went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable though and I truly had an amazing time! I loved the stop at the cathedral, the lunch was family style with us all sharing a table and it was really nice to talk to the other tour members from around the world. Chichen Itza was extremely hot (take an umbrella or rent one for $4usd) but the sights were amazing!!! The Cenote swim had amazingly breathtaking views and was SO refreshing! I'm so glad I went on this tour even if I had to do it on my own. I'd gladly paid twice this amount for this tour... Oh wait..I did! 🤦

This was our first time in Cancun and of course we had to do this tour. The reviews did not lie. We loved this tour company. Our guide Caesar and driver Jorge were spectacular. Caesar was very knowledgeable and entertaining. As a bilingual passenger I couldn’t stop thinking how phenomenal Caesars English was. Everything was translated to a T. He discussed the history behind each destination and was very educational. I had seen reviewers complaining about the order of the tour but I believe it was in the precise order. Do I wish we could have stayed in the locations longer, yes. However, there’s a reason for the timing of the locations because there’s a drive to get to each destination. We had stopped in Valladolid first and were there for approx 20 minutes. They dropped us off in the center of the city so we could quickly take pictures. Then we headed off to Chichén Itzá and were there for a good amount of time. Approx 3 hours, give or take. However it was perfect because it was relatively hot and extremely humid. Recommend taking an umbrella if you’re traveling during a hot time of year and buy a good amount of water before entering, no water is sold inside the grounds. However, water can be purchased before entering the grounds and they do have umbrellas for rent. Ending with the cenote was the cherry on top. It was very refreshing and beautiful. We were there for about an 1 hour. We left around 8:30am and we were dropped off to our meeting spot with a taxi waiting to take us to our hotel (only for hotel pick-up) around 7:30pm so it’s a long day. Make sure you’re well rested, and comfortable, it’s a long day.

Let me start by saying this was a great tour to go on and I personally had a lot of fun. You start out by going to Valladolid which I personally would've rather spent the time in Chichen Itza. You get a short time to walk around and it just seems out of the way an not necessary. Next you stop for lunch which is an opportunity to buy a souvenir from the folks where you eat lunch. Third you go to Chichen Itza an get about 2 hours to tour. It really isn't enough time to see and explore everything you'd like to explore. I was able to see everything because I did not stick with the tour group but I was walking pretty fast through the ruins. Finally you get to swim in the Cenote which was a lot of fun. The ride back is pretty long since most of us were staying in the Hotel Zone in Cancun, 2.5 hours. It was a really cool experience but again more time at Chichen Itza would've made the trip better.
