Amazing place, our tour guide (booked through Thompson) was extremely knowledgeable. His information about the place and the Mayan people was brilliant. They truly were/are an amazing people. Must see place.

truly amazing place, lots of Sun, tropical vegetation and mauna history. I liked most the observatory and the great pyramid. Nice for couples, solo travel and basically everyone. Totally worth the time spent. Don't forget the cenote on the way back.

We had an amazing thanksgiving trip to Mexico and Chichen Itza was the highlight of our trip. It was mesmerizing to see the amazing architecture and craftsmanship of the ancient Mayan people. Also our amazing guide gave us a great insight into the Mayan culture and rituals and how their society functioned. Highly recommended!

This was a trip we thought we had to make and it proved to be a great education into the ability of the Mayan people to understand our world and develop science a lot earlier than the vast majority of the global cultures. The site was not too crowded and the guide we had provided an excellent insight into how... More

Give this place a 3.5 stars. This structures of the pyramids are amazing. To build something on primitive tools are something. The reasons behind the slight average rating is I didn't feel like I was taking back in time when I went to a local tour guide. Most of the time he was talking about something else that wasn't related... More

Our trip was with George, through TUI (Thompson). He was the best facilitator of a trip I've ever had the pleasure of travelling with. His enthusiasm, knowledge and humor made the experience for us. The pyramid and temples were fantastic, the history of science and culture was immense. With this particular trip we also swam in a cenote, which was... More

Booked through Maya tours which were way cheaper than the holiday company we went with. Really good daybut very long, 12 hour trip with 6 hours of it spent travelling. We were a small group with a really good guide who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We went in November and it was uncomfortably hot and humid as little to... More

Definitely get here at/before opening (8am) to explore the ruins and get some awesome pictures before the hordes arrive by the busloads. We were done exploring before noon when it started to get really hot and crowded. Also definitely hire a guide to learn more about the history of the ruins and the mayan culture! You can hire both english... More

Book through Thompson, very early pickup. Arrived around 10.30am and it was pretty quiet. Our tour guide, Victor, explained everything there was to know about Chichen Itza. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and wish my history lessons at school were as good as this.
