Full description

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, or a nearby meeting point, and then journey to one of the most important monuments on the Yucatán Peninsula.   Upon arrival at Chichén Itzá, look at the step pyramid of Kukulcan (El Castillo), known for the play of light from the equinox that casts shadows on each step to create an image of a serpent descending.   Go to the ancient cenote of Saamal and experience one of the sinkholes that form part of a network of underground rivers sacred to the Maya people. Enjoy a delicious buffet meal and take a stroll around the colonial city of Valladolid to complete your experience.

Muy puntuales, todo como está descrito. Muy buen transporte y muy seguro, muy buena comida, y buen cenote el que visitamos. El guía del parque arqueológico de Chichen Itzá (Cesar) excelente, muy bien informado y con buena energía y onda. Lo único malo fue el otro guía quien no salía de los comentarios xenófobos y machistas.

What an excellent tour! It’s a full day (12 hours) but they fetched us right on time, with great communication. Caesar and Alan, our tour guides, were fantastic. They had great knowledge and kept the information light and funny. And they had the answer to all the questions we asked. The drive is long (3 hours both ways) but the bus is comfy and air conditioned. We found there was just enough time at each spot before it became dragged out. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see these sights! He cold water provided by the bus driver was also a nice touch. Really couldn’t fault this tour!

The tour was well organized and everything went according to plan. Our guides Alan and Tino were also great. Alan was funny and set the mood for the ride. Tino has a lot of knowledge about the history of the Maya etc. All in all I would recommend the tour to others. Only the time in Valladolid could have been a little longer.
