I would like to thank David & Alex the knowledge they shared with the tour group was outstanding and it made a very long day better. The bus ride was way to long 4+ hours from pickup in Playa del Carmen to the site. David's ability to talk and educate us made the long ride bearable. We were given a... More

Tony, our tour guide, is a Mayan descendent. His knowledge of the Mayan culture, and his shared insight, plugged in rather well with our tour of Chichen Itza and Cenote Ik Kil. These places have a rich history, and it was great to learn about them from such a teacher! We stayed at a resort hotel in Riviera Maya, so... More

We booked the deluxe tour, thinking no swim- perfect. This tour is run by the Xplore company and they do a very good job. The hotel buses pick you up, and drive you to facility, where you are re-bused based on your hotel groupings, really how close together they are. You will spend the entire day with the people you...

We opted for the "deluxe" tour and it was worth it. Our guide, Miguel, was BIG fun, and his associate, Jesus, was very informative. This tour is run by the same company that owns Xplor and they know what they are doing! There is a lot of time on the bus but they do all they can to make it... More

We booked our tour through our hotel lobby at the Oasis Grand Palm, walked across the bridge 2 days later and saw a better tour for 40% less. Don't book this company it will turn your excursion into an exercise in patience. It started by them telling us to be in our lobby by no later than 7 am or... More

At first I was debating between Xichen Xlassic and Xichen Deluxe, now I am very pleased with my choice. Our tour guide was Israel and he is very informative about the Mayan history, explaining to us on our way to Xichen Itza to make the time go by faster. We had brunch, coffee on the way (total of 4.5 hours... More
