“Are You Kidding Me??!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012 via mobile

I wanted to have a beer with the Jerry after the day was done! It was that good!!! Imagine being chauffeured around the Yucatan Peninsula by your knowledgeable friend. That is exactly what this tour enables you to experience. You learn a great deal about the Mayans history, natural phenomenons/landmarks, and Mexican culture all while feeling completely safe in a friendly environment. Jerry's command of the English language coupled with his obvious high level of knowledge about everything you see makes this a no brainer when selecting your tour. It was 100% catered to what we wanted to do on OUR schedule. Not to mention, we weren't hassled once by pushy sales folks while we walked the Chichen Itza compound with Jerry! That being said, if you want a top notch guide/experience and are willing to spend a little more, BOOK THIS TOUR!!! It is beyond worth it! You feel like a VIP when you are blowing by all the other huge bus "cattle tours."

“GO WITH JERRY!!!...the ONLY way to see Chichen Itza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

The private tour with Jerry was amazing!!! After reading the reviews, we were very anxious to book the tour with Jerry and within a couple hours of emailing his website, we got a response. Jerry was extremely informative, kind, and knowledgeable about Chichen Itza and did not make my boyfriend and I feel rushed while there. I feel we learned a lot more from Jerry than we ever could in a large group tour (my boyfriend and I were the only ones on the tour with Jerry). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Chichen Itza with Jerry to anyone who wants to really learn about its history. We also visited Ik Kil Cenote, which was the most gorgeous cenote I have ever seen. He let us have our time together at the cenote and an all-you-can-eat buffet was included in the tour. It was the perfect day! An added bonus- it's like having your own personal photographer! GO WITH JERRY!!!

This was a great way to see the ruins. Jerry is funny, friendly and knows his history. It's great to be able to go at your pace. Definitely worth the extra money.

“A fantastic day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

We were really looking forward to this trip after reading the reviews on this site, and we had a brilliant time.
The drive to Chichen Itza was fascinating as Jerry explained the history of the region and Mayans.
Both my teenage children found Jerry interesting and asked him lots of questions which he answered clearly, it was a real pleasure to have a family day out to one of the wonders of the world which we all enjoyed so much. Much of the enjoyment came from the way Jerry guided us round the temple and explained the significance of each aspect.

We felt very safe with Alberto's excellent driving and Jerry as guide.
After the sightseeing we had a great lunch and a magical experience swimming in a cenote. This truly was a trip of a life time. Jerry loves history, nature and is proud of his Mexican heritage which we have been privileged to share with for a day. Jerry is excellent value, if we ever visit Mexico again we will definitely ask Jerry to take us again.

“Jerry is a fabulous guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Jerry is an extremely knowledgable and informative guide. We took 2 separate excursions and both were a lot of fun. We learned far more than we ever would have on a bus tour. Jerry took us to two locations for authentic Mexican cuisine, which was very good - as well as assisted us with translation and what to buy when we were interested in purchasing items from locals. Jerry's personality is warm, friendly and down to earth - with a great sense of humor. Rather than a guide we feel we have a friend in Mexico!
We will definitely use Jerry again when we return to Cancun.
If you are looking for a guide, we would highly recommend Jerry.
