Full description

In this GetYourGuide Exclusive, your guide will give you an in-depth tour of Chichen Itza. Listen as they provide background information to help you better understand the history of this place. End the tour with lunch at a local restaurant.

Beat the crowds and the heat by arriving early in the morning at the Chichen Itza Archeological Site. Be the first to enter this Wonder of the World and take amazing pictures with the place almost completely to yourself.

Learn how this large city played an important role in Mayan civilization from around 600 AD to 1200 AD and remained a center of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spaniards. The site was abandoned and its ruins were eventually hidden by the jungle.

To end the tour, enjoy a typical Mexican buffet lunch at a local family-run restaurant.

Overall acceptable. Food was good. Tour could’ve lasted a bit longer inside the park. 2.5 hours is not enough time to see everything, though the tour guide for our group was very knowledgeable. The bathrooms are not very good. No toilet seats to sit down on. Bring your own toilet paper if possible. Some seats on the tour bus do not recline back, which makes it hard to relax for the 2.5 hour journey to the site. Mayan calendars are too expensive. You get what you pay for though.

Everything was great however, at the end of the tour, the bus left everyone to their hotel, and we had to go back to the meeting point and take our car and drive back to the hotel back. If the lady on the phone had informed us about this, we would never go to the meeting point by car, and use taxi instead. And when we asked the tour guide Marco, if they picked everyone up from their hotel too, he said yes. So, it costed us a lot of time and caused stress. We should have been informed about this. Anyway, the tour guide Marco was very fun and informative, he explained everything in Chichen Itza, and we can honestly say that Chichen Itza was stunning. We went to Valladolid only for restrooms abd saw the town like 5-10 mins. The cenote was also nice, but the lunch was not very good. But because of Chichen Itza, we definetely recommend a tour. And it is better if you ask about your pick up and leaving.
