The time spent in the different locations was perfect - not too long , not too short. In Chichen Itza the local guide was very knowledgeable. All together the tour was excellent - recommended!

From start to finish this tour was amazing. This most definitely is a must do tour visiting Cancun. One downside is not enough time in the day to enjoy it all. The bus ride was good time to rest and recover from the night prior. Most definitely wish to have more time at Ik Kil the water and diving was amazing and almost lost track of time. Valladolid is a trip in itself, good sample of the city center to want to make a separate trip back. Reuben was a wonderful tour guide

Great day with our tour guide Galo. Would definitely recommend bringing a hat/umbrella to Chichen Itza as there is minimal shade and stock up on water!

Alexis was great! Very knowledgeable and great tour guide as well as others with him. The cenote wouldve been better if wasnt packed with so many people and long line to get in. Otherwise good experience

The guide was extremely nice and he was very informed and was happy to answer any questions we had. He led us through various activities at Chichén Itzá and throughout the day to keep us entertained. Would highly recommend this tour and also very welcoming for children as well.

Carlos and Susanna were our tour guides. They spoke perfect English and Spanish and offered information in both languages. The bus picked us up timely. While en route to Chichen Izta, Carlos provided the history and other interesting background information about the sites we were visiting. He also taught us a few Mayan words and phrases and explained the Mayan numerical system. The buffet lunch was delicious and provided many vegetarian options. We had the opportunity to purchase our Mayan Sol y Luna personality profiles at the Mayan village where we had lunch--a fun piece of entertainment! I definitely recommend this tour! And hopefully Carlos and Susanna will be your guides!

Good tour, accomodating staff. Would go with them again. Knowledgeable tour guide. Con: maybe they should skip the gift shop since they are the same souvenirs at Chichen Itza.

A long day but what a great day, pictures can't really do Chichen Itza justice you have to see it with your own eyes, amazing.Our tour guide Ricciardo was fantastic, very knowledgeable, funny, thoughtful and kind. My 11 year old son loved it all but his favourite part was the Ik Kil Cenote at the end of the day.

Learned so much about Mayan history, how ahead of the times this culture was thanks to our tour guide. He filled us withso much info on the way to. Schedule wastolerable, Chichen Itza was the highlight and the cenote swim was the refresher!

Resting in Cancun and not going to Chichen Itza - it's just barbarity. The tour is combined, it gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the typical colonial town of Valladolid, explore Chichen Itza and visit and swim in the Ik-Kil cenote. When you are in Chichen Itza, one immediately recalls Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Be sure to choose a tour with a visit to Ik Kiel cenote.

The tour was amazing! Our guide Ricardo was full of knowldge,very humble and kept us engaged throughout the trip. We had a great time and will define recommend to our friends and families.

Started with Valladolid. Our tour guide Ricardo was very knowledgeable and his narrations were interesting and kept the audience engaged. On our way to Chichen Itza, we stopped at a Mayan village. Souvenirs were pricey, apparently more authentic. Food had limited options for vegetarians like us. The main attraction Chichen Itza lived up to its hype. Medium who was our official guide at the site did not have the benefit of a mic and a speaker system and had to speak at the top of her voice to be heard by the large group. She was very informative. We almost got lost after the tour. It's good to stay with the group even though free time is given to explore on your own. You can do souvenir shopping where you stay either Cancun or Mayan Riviera. Ik Kil Cenote wrapped up a fantastic day tour. Wish we had more time at Ik Kil to enjoy the refreshing water. Ricardo gave a list of things tourists generally leave behind and it was very useful. We were picked up on time and overall, time and money well spent on this tour.

It was an amazing tour and very educational. Through this tour, you will engage with and experience many Mayan culture. Chichen Itza is definitely worth a visit while you are here.
