All this tour did was wet my appetite for a larger ruin. You couldn't "touch" anything (buildings and "pyramid" were roped off) and it was hot. Wow was it hot. No shade, being close to the ocean was beautiful, but way too crowded as a result of it being so small.
In short, tons of people, not a lot of space, aggressive vendors, compressed time frame. If I were speaking to someone insisting on going I would strongly suggest grab a cab and do it early in the morning. you really don't need a guide, everything is on the signs. And.. Xel-ha has a mock up miniature of the entire site
