We booked a very last minute trip to Cancun and started looking around for a tour to Chichen Itza and a Cenote swim (Ik-Kil). By reading things on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, we figured out a big bus tour was probably not going to be what we wanted in just a short amount of time.
USA Transfers saved a the day. For about $150 more than the regular tours, my wife and I got our own driver, saw Chichen Itza way before the crowds came (we left Cancun at 6:45 am and by the time we were done touring around 12:30 pm the place was so packed and the line to get in so long we were happy to be leaving). The Cenote swim was great and Juan walked us right in and even watched our bags and snapped a few photos for us. I want him to be our driver for every tour! Again, by going early, we got there ahead of the crowds.
We were enjoying our lunch (it was fine, nothing amazing but after walking about the ruins all day and swimming, it was good to have something) and tons of bus tours starting coming in. We got our swim in just in the nick of time. We were able to be back to our hotel around 5p.m...two hours before the big bus tours got back, giving us just enough time to play in the ocean and hit the pool at our resort again before the sun went day. Again, this made the private tour totally worth it.
Our driver Juan was amazing. He was so friendly and kind and made our trip just that much better. He went above and beyond and made this private tour worth every. single. penny.
