What you'll do

Selected as one of the New Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the Americas and a ¨must see¨ for those interested in history and culture. Myself or my guide friends will lead you through the centuries of history and development, as well as help you understand the amazing architectcture, art and engineering integrated into the city. After Chichen Itza, we will visit a local community-run cenote for a perfect spot to get away from the crowds and cool down in the refreshing blue waters. We will then stop in Valladolid is a city where past and present come together to delight us with the sights of colored colonial architecture and tastes of an incredibly rich gastronomy. We lunch in the courtyard of a restored colonial mansion, an experience in itself, and have time to wander the main square of the center afterwards.

    Great day, small group and early to see chichen itza, lovely lunch in the colonial town and finished with a dip in a beautiful canote. Really well structured day never felt rushed throughout given free time at each stop. Santi was a great guide very knowledgable

    Our driver was great! It is a long drive to the pyramids, and he was a very smooth driver. They were early to pick us up, and very ready for the day. They are courteous to stop at a nice rest stop mid way for baños and shopping. They have the admissions tickets all set up for the pyramids and cenotes, so that is included in the price. They also take us to a small town, and we have a nice 3 course lunch and that is also included in the price. The cenote is something special that we would have never discovered on our own. I don’t want to give away the surprise, but the cenote surprised the hell out of me. It is out of this world. If you are up for adventure this tour is for you!

    The tour is amazing, you start at Chichén Itzá before all the crowds get there, the tour is thorough and informative, then head to Valladolid for lunch, the food is great, after comes the cenote which is incredible. Make sure you eat breakfast before you leave!

    This is a wonderful laid-back tour that you won’t regret taking! It starts early so the hotel pickup was great. Alberto gave us lots of good information and history and answered all of our questions. Lunch was spectacular and we were surprised at how much we enjoyed the cenote.

    Truly if you are wondering what the best Chichen Itza tour experience is, you need to book this trip. With the Tulum based hotel pick up and drop off (saving us two taxi ride costs), a beautiful Yucatán lunch, and all the fees for entries, amazing experiences and a wonderful guide, this tour is such a great deal. The smaller tour size and shuttle made for quick pick ups/drop offs and a quick and comfortable ride up to our destinations. Our guide (shout out to Luigi!) was so knowledgeable and friendly, he truly made this trip so special for us (including being the best personal photographer). This tour is amazing and is ran so well, I’d highly recommend choosing them.
