We took a tour of 12 hours from Cancun to Chichen Itza. The bus has air conditioning and comfortable seating. The driver was good and the tour guide was pushi. Even though the xenote is wonderful, we went in to it and swim for a moment. The tour as many other is focusing on selling the souvenirs that are in... More

Must be seen, the constructions are amazing and "El Castillo" is a beautiful huge structure, massive and impressing. It is a pity that it is such crowded and full of standings selling gadgets and other stuff. Better to go there in the morning so that there would be few people around and you won't suffer the extremely hot temperature that... More

A full day excursion from our cruise ship docked in Progreso, Mexico. It was a two hour coach trip from the Port to Chichen Itza. We were led to believe that this two hour journey would be broken up with a comfort stop on the way. This was misleading because the stop we had prior to arriving at Chichen Itza... More

Well worth the trip, this place has so many stories and so much history. Highly recommended to visit with a guide so you don't miss the full picture. Quite incredible but extremely hot in July

'One of the new seven wonders of the world' You are no longer allowed to climb up the actual pyramid so you have to admire it from the bottom. If you clap in a group you will hear the sound of a bird chirping.... that is why everyone is clapping ;) You really need a guide to go round this... More

This is a must do while in the Yucatan Peninsula. A day trip is a perfect way to experience this place. We went on a tour and had a great time. What we really appreciated was the history and the tour guides sharing so much about the culture and the details that make this place so wonderful. The reason why... More

I booked this trip through my hotel and so glad I did. The trip was amazing and you get to see most of the heart of the Yucatan as things where explained to us on the trip. The only thing to watch out for IMO is the first stop you go to for Mayan based gifts is walk just out... More

You will truly enjoy the visit if you love history. After tons of TA research, I decided to take a private taxi from Riviera Maya for $280usd for the whole day. The entries were about $15pp. The night before I found an excellent app - MXplor for 99 cents so we decided not to pay $40 for private guide. It... More

We did an escorted tour of these Mayan ruins - it was well worth it although it took over 2 hours on a coach from Cancun. It was very hot during our visit - we took some fine photos. A surprise downpour of rain cooled things off ! There is no museum, but there is plenty to see. We found... More
