Awesome experience! Vicente Padilla was a great tour guide full of knowledge and very nice. Unfortunately, I can't remember the bus driver's name but he got us there and back without incident and that's always a good thing. Vicente made sure that everyone enjoyed their experience. I traveled alone so he was my personal paparazzi. The tour was an amazing one that I marvel over every time I look at the photos and I just went yesterday. I highly recommend the experience and tour with this company!

This was an outstanding experience. Omar our tour guide took care of us 100% during the entire trip. We started off with zip lining through the trees. I was concerned about being 255lbs but they informed me everything would be OK so I was able to experience the fun with my Wife and Daughter and zip lining into the water was a great end to the zip lining. Then my daughter and I drove the ATV through the mud and around the jungle and had a great muddy time only to go to the swim hole or Cenote and wash off and refresh in the cool water. There we had the option of jumping in or zip lining into the water and we decided to do both. It was just nothing but FUN. Once again look for Omar as he a great tour guide! At the end your offered a burrito and I suggest the beef, but the chicken was good too. The only bad thing I have to say was the pictures. They offered us 99 pictures to review and we could purchase all $100 which includes all the bad pictures and an on-line access code to print them off yourself. They do not print any off for you. If you only wanted one or two each pictures they were $29 each. You don’t even spend that kind of money in the United States for pictures. Great experience but take your own pictures.

Great tour; educational guide

The most memorable part of this tour was seeing the ruins of the temples at Chichen Itza and adding to my knowledge about some of the ancient Mayan rituals. Seeing the ball park/court was a very special treat as I had recently done a unit on Ancient Civilizations and the Puk to Puk games featured prominently in the lecture. As a world traveller, it is always humbling to me to be able to stand on ground trodden upon by historical persons one only read about in textbooks. It emotionally transports you back to that time and place and allows you to sythesize the theoretical with the physical. Our part Mayan guide did a great job filling in the gaps for me both on the bus and on site. You could tell he is very passionate about the plight of the modern day Mayan people in Mexico and South America. I also learned some valuable insights about tequila and have added it to my small but growing list of delicious spirits. I didn't care for the Valladolid aspect as we did not get to leave the bus and tour the small town as I had anticipated. The buffet was excellent! I did not participate in the cenote swim - I watched from the deck instead. Everyone who did participate seemed to have a wonderful time of it, so I think next time I might participate now that I know what is involved. All in all this was a great tour for me as I learned a lot and walked away with invaluable insights. I would recommend this tour.

Solid tour, but might choose a different one next time

Get ready for a long day! Leaving from Cancun (even with personal hotel pick up) means driving about 3 hours both ways. At the first stop, Valladolid, you won't leave the bus, but it's interesting to see. Our tour guide Marco was very knowledgeable both at Valladolid and Chichen Itza. The schedule mentioned time to walk around, but we had almost none. Our photos weren't all we wanted them to be because we had to take them while on the tour between stops. Between Chichen Itza and lunch a two weird things happened. First, someone took our picture on the way in, and returned to our bus with a print of it on a tequila bottle asking us to pay for it. Apparently it was to help pay for education. The tour guide also performed a chakra healing ceremony on another person on the tour, which was interesting and did not take long, but this wasn't mentioned in the schedule, so it was annoying that the whole group had to stop and wait for it in the sun instead of being able to go to lunch. I wish it had been an optional demonstration. The food for lunch was decent, but not delicious. It included cochinita pibil, tortillas, plain chicken, an unseasoned vegetable medley, spaghetti, rice, beans, watermelon, and salad. They also do not have great alternatives for those with allergies or dietary restrictions, so be mindful of this if you are vegetarian or do not eat pork. Remember you only get one drink included, so bring money if you'd like to buy extra or alcoholic drinks! Next was the tequila tasting, which I did not do, but my friend said all of the tequilas were delicious and the best she'd ever tasted. The cenote swim was an amazing experience. I highly recommend this. Everyone must wear a life vest, but they cost a couple pesos and are not included in the price of this trip. Also extra is the cost for a locker to leave your things. I found a small place on a platform above the cenote to leave my bag, but it was a risk I took because I hadn't brought extra money. Overall, I would say Marco was a great guide, and Chichen Itza and the Cenote are truly incredible no matter what tour you take, these are what bring my rating to a four. This tour, except for a few things, was a solid choice, but I still might have made a different one.

I had Super Frank and Pablo and they were great! Frank was pretty knowledgeable and he was pretty comical. Only thing criticism I have is you don't really get to spend as much time at some of the places that you may like (cenote especially)

Pablo and Marco were the best! Pablo was a great driver! Marco was really helpful and knew a lot about the tours and where we went. He helped find parking for my car when I met the tour bus at 6am. I will recommend this tour to my friends and family! Thank you for everything guys!

Absolute waste of time and money (read before you pay!)

Okay I am going to let you know right now if you want to visit Chichen Itza you should probably go through another company. To start off they made us get on the bus at 5am in the morning, now I’m all for an early start but then we proceeded to sit on the bus for 5 HOURS!! The place is only 2 and a half hours away so I was really taken back when I look at the time we got there. Secondly be ready to pay extra for everything little thing like water that humans actually need to not pass out, LIFE JACKETS that you literally have to pay for or you cannot enter the Cenote, the “buffet” isn’t really a buffet they take you out to the middle of no where and have you get tacos (which are good) the bad thing is when I went to get more all the severs were gone… confused as to how that’s a buffet when I can’t go back and get more food. Another thing is with the buffet is ONE DRINK I repeat ONE DRINK either one water or one soda. After we were out in the sweltering sun with no water provided they said “oh if you’re thirsty you have to pay” lastly if you do go to Chichen Itza make sure to bring pesos. There are vendors who the tour guide told us “don’t buy from them they are going to use tactics to get you but ignore” then when we got to the buffet he told us to only buy from the buffet places gift shop and their prices are astronomical. Plus the vendors at Chichen Itza are people who come out everyday trying to support themselves and loved one I encourage you to buy from them they have a lot of nice handcrafted things. Also you can’t use card anywhere in this trip so take out a lot of pesos if you decide to go cause you will be spending a lot. To recap I only put 2 stars because Chichen Itza was nice other than that the trip was complete wasted of time and money. Plus at the end of the ride they said “if you have a bad review to give keep it to yourself and keep it a secret” which makes me want to write this even more. You’re welcome save some coins and go with xcaret they are a really good fun service to use in Cancun.

Chechen Itza is worth the ride

Really good tour. It’s a long day but the guides are great. Frank, Rodrigo and our driver Francisco did a fantastic job. Rodrigo was our guide at Chechen Itza. He was so informative and you could tell how much he loved giving the tour. It was a great experience. The only downside is that it takes a long time to do all of the pickups in the morning, like an hour and a half. After that it was smooth sailing. Drop offs don’t take as long.
