  • "We also arrived in Chichen Itza early which allowed us to beat the crowd and the heat because we left before the hottest point of the day." See review
  • "The Ik Kil cenote swim is fun but there is a crowd to contend with and this is the most developed of all the cenotes we visited." See review

Way less time than advertised

Even though the tour mentions 3 hours for Chichen and another 3 hours for Coba, it was just 1:30 on each site. The guide was nice but lacked a bit of knowledge, the driver was nice and helpful.

Best Transportation and a Great Guide.

The Mercedes Sprinter used for this trip was the most comfortable of our tours. Our guide, Lily, was very animated, fun to listen to and very well informed about the ruins visited. The tour is a little squeezed for time at the ruins, but we got to see most of each site and took lots of pictures. Coba is the more picturesque, sitting amid the encroaching jungle, but Chichen Itza is a 'seven-wonders' location for good reason and Lily pointed out the perspective to view the location of the solstice shadow the main structure is famous for . The Ik Kil cenote swim is fun but there is a crowd to contend with and this is the most developed of all the cenotes we visited. Great food at the restaurant at Ik Kil, too. I would bring friends on this tour.

We only had a couple days and this tour was perfect to see as much as you can in one day. It did feel a bit rushed, but we knew that going into it (3 stops in one day?!). Tour guide and driver were both wonderful. Transportation was nice, clean, and air conditioned.

I am sure people with interest in anthropology will find this trip very informative and interesting. But the size of Chichen Itza was bit underwhelming. Overall I am happy that I joined this tour.

Amazing day with a great guide

Everything went according to plan. Had 9 people in my group so it was easy to get around and not have to always wait on a bunch of stragglers. Van was comfortable enough for the long rides and our guide was great and gave us lots of little tidbits of info. Lunch was good with plenty of options on a buffet and plenty of time to sit and relax.

Let me start by saying my review has absolutely nothing to do w/ the tour guide, but more with the tour company. Everything that went wrong was out of the control of our guide Enrique. We were picked up promptly at 7:15 as we were told the night before. Picked up in a spacious Mercedes van, lots of room, AC working & great condition. Driven to a gas station & swapped to a much smaller van w/ much more people in it. The van had 12 seats, w/ 12 people + bags, no room to move. Enrique began the tour by stating it would be a bilingual tour when we signed up for an English tour. There was 1 couple that spoke Spanish so I’m not sure why the tour had to be catered to them, they should’ve been swapped to another group. We were offered water & bananas early on & off we went. The van was absolutely packed full, & we were stuck in the back with another couple. The AC didn’t reach all the way to the back & it was over 2 hrs to our first stop. Absolutely miserable. Chichen itza was really wonderful, everything I expected it to be. We got there early to avoid the lines & we were heading out just as it really got busy. Enrique provided tons of info, interesting facts & was more than happy to answer any questions & take some pictures. After 2ish hours at chichen it was time to go to ik kil. We were so looking forward to ik kil, the sheer beauty of the place not too mention needing to cool down after being in the hot Mexican sun for so long. Ik kil was so absolutely crammed full you couldn’t even get down the stairs to even think about swimming. We were given 1.5 hrs here to swim & eat. Disappointed we made our way to the restaurant for a buffet lunch since we couldn’t swim. The lunch was delicious but again people were crammed in tight, barely room to move & it was super dark in the restaurant. I almost couldn’t tell what I was eating. We were given 1.5 hrs here, 30 mins walking around & eating & spent the other hour waiting to go. I wish there was a limit to how many tours can come here, we’ll never be able to come back & weren’t able to take advantage of its beauty. Next back into the hot hot van for a 1.5 hr drive to coba, coba was great. Perfect amount of time, we rode the rickshaw to the ruins for $125 pesos and got to climb to the top wonderful! This company needs to be more concerned w/ the comfort of its guests, half the day is spent in the van. We couldn’t move, we couldn’t breathe, just crammed in tight sweating. We will never book w/ this company again. The only saving grace was how compassionate our guide Enrique was. He’s one of the good ones, and I’d recommend him to anyone.

Great excursion

We got to see three of the most remarkable places. Guide was knowledgeable and curious. Be prepared for lots of walking and climbing!! This is not an activity that is slow either. The ride to Chichen Itza is 2 hours long, and the roads are not smooth. Do not expect a smooth ride. This is an adventure, embrace it! I highly recomend this excursion for those that want to embrace Mexico in the raw and it's history.
