Buena excursion bastante completa. Aunque como se explica en la descripcion no incluye una tasa de 30$ para chichen itza, asi como los chalecos (obligatorios) y los lockers para el cenote. En cuanto al transporte fue comodo aunque el trayecto era largo 2-3 horas aprox. Llama la atencion lo aborratado de puestos de venta que esta dentro de la zona arqueológica de chichen itza, una pena. El cenote al que fuimos era el de Saamal, precioso, aunque masificado. Nuestro guía fue Vicente, impecable.

It was a great day with Amigos. All stops and places were amazing. I was lucky to be early in Cenote as it became very crowded. We were at Selma Maya and it was a huge line of people down and in my pictures you can barely see the water as its soo crowded. Also the guide in Chichen Itza (which was amazing, skilled, informed) went on a little too long so we got really wet and that made everyones pictures ruined.

The tour was very good. We only booked one day in advance and it was a Sunday so we were a bit worried that it was too short notice but everything worked fine. Our guide Frank was very entertaining and led us well through the day. They changed the visiting order a bit on our tour. We went to Valladolid first then had lunch (at 11 am) and only went to Chichen Itza afterwards. I would have preferred to do it first while it is still cooler but I guess everyone wants that and they have to distribute the masses a bit. The tequila tasting is not really worth mentioning. you can taste a few small sips of flavoured tequilas at the cenote where they sell them.
