Although a lot of time is spent on the bus travelling between venues, this tour was very well run, and allows you to visit a couple of distinct areas: Chichen Itza Our tour guide was very informative, and gave us a quick run down on the history and cultural significance of different sites. We then had some time to wander... More

**First of all, DRINK LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of water the day before and during the day as it's VERY hot inland and you WILL get dehydrated!!** The ruins are a MUST on your trip to Cancun; there are plenty of tour choices, but we loved the multi-faceted adventure with this group. We LOVED going on this tour and... More

Really disappointing tour. We left the hotel at 7:15am and didn't actually get to Xichen until 2:30 in the afternoon, only to have a "guided tour" that sucked up all but 30 minutes of our time there and only covered the basic plaza and the game stadium. Bathroom break 10 min into the trip from Cancun, then 15min in Valladolid,... More

This tour was a bit too touristy for my liking. The first stop on the tour was a tourist trap souvenir shop. Second stop Chicen Itza. The history and pyramids were very impressive, unfortunately our guide only spoke Spanish which made it extremely difficult for my girlfriend to enjoy. Last stop was the cenote which was a lot of fun,... More

Such a full and long day, but amazing sights and information, I felt I got what I paid for - the bus trip, lunch, tour, visit of the Mayan village, history and information and a swim in a cenote! Our guide was Jose Luis who was very friendly and passionate, and a wealth of information about the area, ruins and... More

I had planned on taking a nap, but we got a lesson on the Mayan People, culture and customs. Before we arrived we had a late breakfast on the... More
