Overall rating

4.9
(7 reviews)

Embarking on a tour to Chichen Itza, Valladolid, and Chichikan Cenote, we dove deep into Mayan culture, guided by the exceptional Isaac and driven by Eric. Their professionalism made our journey seamless, punctual, and richly educational. Isaac’s passion for Mayan history illuminated each site we visited, with personal anecdotes and photos bringing the ancient world to life. Valladolid’s charm was a delightful preview to the profound cultural immersion at Chichikan Cenote, highlighted by a traditional Mayan ceremony. Chichen Itza stood out, where Isaac’s insights into Mayan civilization’s complexities were unparalleled. Despite a basic buffet and typical tourist shop prices—where bargaining at Chichen Itza is advised—the overall service was outstanding. This tour offered more than just visits to historical sites; it was a comprehensive cultural education, leaving us with lasting insights and respect for Mayan heritage. Highly recommended for an enriching exploration of Mayan landmarks.

This day trip combines 3 separate activities - Cenote swim, Chichen Itza visit and visit to Valladolid - and as such it's a full on busy day and perfect for those who are on limited time. Obviously, this means that time at each place is shorter than it would be if you were doing these activities yourself but that's the trade off for combining them all in the one trip. Our guide Frank was very good as was our guide at Chichen Itza, Rodrigo. Transport is included and was well organised with a message the evening before confirming my pick up time and location. Lunch was also included, plentiful and included chicken, beans, rice etc. Be aware that you will need to pay for entry into Chichen Itza though as this is not included. Take water and sunscreen as it is very hot especially at Chichen Itza - water costs a lot more there so take it with you if you're on a budget. Umbrellas for shade can be hired for $5. Overall, an excellent tour covering key experiences of the Yucatan Peninsula

The humor with which Rodrigo (the only tour guide who grew up in Chichen Itza) started the day was very entertaining and kept you involved. In addition, it was very fascinating what he said during the tour in Chichen Itza and in an interactive manner. This really added a lot. In addition, he knows how to choose the moments so that you arrive at Chichen Itza at a time when it is not too busy and you can therefore take good photos. He also knew exactly which angle you should and should not have and which camera position for the best Instagram experience :). It was also cool to swim in the Cenote and the food was good. Very happy we chose this tour!

Julian (driver) and Rodrigo (guide) were excellent hosts. Wonderful opportunity to have a member of the Mayan community like Rodrigo guide us in the ruins of Chichen Itza, great knowledge, very didactic and lively explanations and best of all, spectacular photographs at the archaeological site. One hundred percent recommended and I hope you can go with Rodrigo and Julian on your visit.

Esther Nancy and Carlos were great and informative throughout the tour. Esther stealing the show with her knowledge of Mayan culture and history and her jokes too were well received 😀
