We used Go Natural as the private tour guide, and Ruben was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and made the tour very exciting. You can walk around it yourself of course, but the real wonder in this attraction is hearing about the detail on the pyramid, the history of the ruins and the various extra details. It really is a wonder of... More

We booked this trip through Thomson as part of our holiday. One word Amazing! Well worth a visit. We had a guide which was really useful and informative. Long long day 6am start back at hotel at approx 7pm but worth it. Top tip: take an umbrella to give you some shade.

Quick note, you can no longer climb the temple so if that's what your after look at another site. Had a great tour and amazing guide. Temple is amazing and learnt so much, a lot of areas are in open sun so bear that in mind. Defiantly recommend for a cultural tour. Ours also included a cenote swim at a... More

It was my second time to Chichen Itza and we decided to visit Tulum and Uxmal first. Clearly Chichen Itza is the best. Go early at 8h to avoid queues and the heat. Also try t see the multimedia show at night

Great site, great history, and the tour guides are wonderful. The entire site in amazing and not to be missed. Read up on it before you go as there are hundreds of vendors, all with the same wares, but no books to be had. I found, as is typical when in Mexico, the constant hawking of trinkets to be an...

2 1/2 drive from Cancun but definitely worth it. Try to check the weather before going its better to go when its a little bit cloudy so it's not too hot. Its more humid here than Cancun. A lot of vendors around which makes it less serene considering its an ancient attraction although these vendors sell cheaper souvenirs than the... More

One of the biggest archaeological sites that I have ever visited, it is really impressive and a big pyramid. There are plenty of signs explaining what each of the buildings were. Lots of stalls selling mostly tacky souvenirs but well worth the visit.

We visited Chichen Itza with our two children (aged 7 & 9). Thanks to Horrible Histories, the children seemed to know more about it than us!!! We didn't hire a guide but had done a little reading in preparation so we could involve the children. We hired a car and travelled from Tulum, took us about 2 hours but was... More
