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

Our guide was Jose Luis who was very friendly and passionate, and a wealth of information about the area, ruins and... More

VERY pricey. Spent more time on the bus than we did at the locations. Torrential downpour at Xichen Itza caused our time there to be shorter. It's beautiful and I wish I could give this tour a better grade, but we really missed out on a lot. Tour no longer stops in Valladolid for lunch. I understand this is a... More

Booked online thru Experiencias Xcaret, and we were driven to choose this tour company after reading so many reviews, and also due to its price-schedule... More
