Chichen itza tour is very nice. We did the tour with experiencias xcaret. I booked directly in the website to make sure its legit. I wanted to give the place 5 stars but thinking of reducing one star because of the tour package going to cenote. (cenote was not worth it). Chichen is amazing. I love the history behind it... More

If you are over in Mexico you can't possibly not go to Chichen Itza, it's one of the 7 wonders of the world! It is quite amazing to see the ruins and hear about the Myan history, definitely worth the visit with a tour guide who is knowledgable as there is no information posted around the site so you will...

Go on a tour to visit this attraction. There's so much to learn and it's just a much better experience than wondering around aimlessly. The area is huge. Take a bottle of water and comfortable shoes you don't mind getting dusty. There are lots of vendors selling souvenirs. I didn't stop to check the prices but I guess you could... More

After taking the Chichen Itza tour as a substitute for the Cozumel Jeep tour which Sam’s Club travel cancelled, we are writing about our extreme disappointment with this tour and our unhappy experiences on it. When we agreed for the alternate activity we had no idea that this was in another city and we would have to take a ferry... More

Absolutely need to see if you are in that area of Mexico. Very hot the day we were there. Bring lots of water and make sure you wear comfortable footwear. Amazing! Very knowledgeable guides.

Definitely an amazing place to visit and if you are in Cancun or the Cancun area it's definitely worth the drive. You can always take a tour they have hundred of companies to choose from but if you are staying in Cancun just ask your hotel concierge to arrange a car rental and they will deliver the car to your...

My son and I were very fortunate to spend the day with Jay touring Chichen Itza with his arranged guide and having lunch and swimming in a cenote. Jay is the real deal. You can count on him 100% to do exactly what he says and provide a great experience. It was a fantastic day right from the start. His... More

Everybody that comes to the Yucatan Peninsula must come to Chichen Itza. One of the new 7 wonders of the world, it is an amazing place. You can feel the history flow through you. As you enter the Archeological site, you are in awe of the magnificence of the ruins. And I am not versed enough in writing to put... More

The site itself is amazing however I found it very strange and distracting that there were so many vendors of souvenirs inside the site. Beware of "expert" tour guides. These people will give you their own version of what the site is. Do not settle for the first price either. You can usually get a tour for about $25 US... More
