Full description
Beat the crowds and the heat by arriving early in the morning at the Chichen Itza archeological site on this 10-hour tour.

The only thing that I can say as negative was the fact that the information I received via email was contradicting and confusing. I then stuck to the information that came directly from the provider "Amigo Tours" and that worked well. In my opinion, we could have been in Chichén Itzá half an hour earlier, but due to the pandemic it was generally not that crowded. Our tour guide Tony did a great job with a few nice anecdotes and with Rodrigo we had the best guide for the Chichén Itzá. The great thing about the early tour was that we were the first to visit the cenote, which gave us plenty of space and a relaxed stay.

It was certainly worth getting up early to beat the crowds and heat at Chichen Itza. Marco, our tour guide, was an absolute delight! He kept the conversation interesting and had a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Mayans. I was a little worried because they accidentally charged my card twice for the US$24 monument fee, but Marco took care of it instantly! Very genuine and overall a great experience! Also, if you don’t get a confirmation on where exactly you’ll be picked up, just call them that morning and they will let you know :) Obviously you won’t get to see the entire site, but you’ll see and learn about the most popular ruins there. Plus, you’ll have about 30ish minutes at the end to explore for yourself. This is a great option for those that don’t feel comfortable venturing out to Chichen Itza by themselves. Highly recommend!

The bus was very comfortable. Alfredo was an excellent driver. The tour was fascinating, and engaging. Marco did a wonderful job of educating us and entertaining us at the same time. Plus, by leaving early, we arrived right before the site opened. We were the first tour group into the site. It was great to see this marvel with so few others there. We would definitely recommend Amigo Tours. Especially Marco and Alfredo!
