We were apprehensive about the amount of time we would be spending on the bus, but our tour guide whose name I can't remember at all and I wish I could because he was awesome (was it Efraim??), Jesus, and the bus driver Rosilio, made the trip go much faster. We enjoyed the stop in Valladolid and Cenote Zaci. Everyone... More

I am so happy that I booked the tour to Chichen Itza, went to the city of Valladolid and saw a cenote with my family and Husband. I believe we had the deluxe version of the tour? Not sure. I studied Mayan architecture and sculpture in college so I was so glad I could see it and touch it in... More

Big shout out to Alejandro for an excellent tour. His historic and cultural knowledge added a lot to the day. The bus was very comfortable, the staff provided cold drinks frequently, umbrellas, and wipes ready as needed. I would definitely recommend the tour.

The program, guides, tour around the pyramid, efficient coordination. Drawback - the tour bus had a very tight room for legs, even though I am 5'3".

The deluxe tour was $109USD and our on-resort tour coordinator (travel agent, not this tour company) told us it was luxury bus, breakfast on board, food and drinks included, out at 7:30 and back by 6:30. Sounded great so we signed on. I have to be careful what I eat so I made sure I grabbed something at our resort... More
