My tour was AMAZING. OUR guide Layla was so knowledgeable and I didn't want her to stop talking. The transportation was clean and comfortable and I didn't feel rushed at any location. They really go out of their way to take care of you. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Rodrigo was a fantastic tour guide and made sure to give us the full history of the Mayans. Alfredo was a great driver and kept to the schedule as much as was possible. We really enjoyed swimming in the Cenote and touring Chichen Itza.

Overall the tour was good, organised and planned well. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Would Highly recommend bringing water bottles and a hat when touring Chichen Itza, very hot standing in the sun for hours.

The only issue was, I had selected the option for hotel pickup, but last minute it was changed to a meeting point pick up and I wasn't even notified. Thus, we had to arrange for a taxi last minute to get us to the meeting point.

Our guide Frank was amazing so was our driver Pedro. Both very pleasant, Frank is very knowledgable and speaks great English.

The trip lost a star because :
- you do not say on the website that life jackets and locker at cenotes are not included - it’s only $2 (43 pesos) each but it’s worth mentioning in the description
- cenotes should be at the end of the day - it was nice because there weren’t so many people however it’s quite uncomfortable having to do valladolid and chichen itza whilst still bit wet from swimming
-way too much time at the little shop before cenotes - 25 mins that could have been spent swimming in cenotes

Overall, it was a really good trip.

Great tour, The Cenote and the lunch were great, then Chichen Itza was educational, Plenty of time in both attractions. Valladolid was a quick stop, kinda pointless if you ask me. I would opt for a tour without the last stop if it meant savings and getting back sooner. It's a very long day 7am til 8pm. You can buy the exact same tour in downtown Cancun (at hostels etc) for the same price but no extra charge (23USD) for the taxes. . .

The tour itself could be great, but there is SO much waste of time. You leave at 7 from Cancun and arrive in the area of chichen itza mid morning. Now instead of going straight there, they bring you to the cenote first and to eat (very poor buffet, with no WATER included) and then go to chichen itza arriving there at 1pm when it’s super hot!!

The worst part is that we paid for 3 hrs archeological tour un chichen itza. Well, it was a total of 2 hours, and only for 1 hour (or less) we had a guide (who clearly is not an archeologist but just the guide of the tour.

My opinion? Chichen itza was incredible. But don’t go with this tour.
