was amazed how great tour was . For once was actually picked up at exact time and place . Guide Marco was an exceptional historical guide and just loved that we took an interest. Bus looked brand new and aircon managed well. Our driver got us everywhere safely. The trip was not rushed. Yes it took time but worth it cenote as best had seen ..meal all you can eat usual buffet with salad and desserts. A spotless restaurant too.. Waiters brought me any soft drink inc beer too.. I chose that option on booking. I chose Jamaica soft drink. Fruit and little cake for dessert. Then mezcal tasting. Chichen Itza was amazing and made much more enjoyable with Marco s explanation and jokes and photos. Then 30 minutes in another town ..we could have had 1 hour! Safe journey back A really good experience and a lot better than many tours I have taken. Excellent.
