Chichen Itza - any EARLY tour groups?

I want to visit Chichen Itza but here is my dilema. I don't want to rent a car and drive (seems like a hassle) but I want to get there EARLY when the parks opens. Does anyone know of any tour operators or other means of getting there early, even private tours?

We just booked private transportation to Chichen Itza through Entertainment Plus (www.entertainment-plus.net). This company seems to get great reviews on these boards. So far they have been quick to respond to any questions I have emailed them. We also booked them for our airport transportation. We'll leave feedback on how it went when we return from our trip in a couple of weeks!

A private tour by a reputable company - like Entertainment Plus - is definitely the way to go. Although they specify 7:00 a.m. as the earliest suggested departure time, I'll bet they would leave earlier on request. (From Cancun, 6:00 a.m. would be perfect.) You can also customize the itinerary a bit, such as a stop-off at the colonial town of Valladolid on the way back. Instead of the over-crowded swim-and-buffet-lunch at the Ik Kil cenote near Chichen Itza, you could swim at Cenote Zaci in the center of Valladolid, where there's a reasonably-priced restaurant that gets quite good reviews.
