Departure Time

6:00 AM
Start your small-group tour to Chichen Itza and Coba, respectively, with pickup from your hotel in Playa del Carmen. Board an air-conditioned minivan for the drive to one of the most renowned archaeological sites of the Yucatán Peninsula. Breakfast, a buffet lunch, and beverages are provided during the day.

On arrival, take a guided tour of the site and view impressive structures built during the Maya Empire. View the Kukulkan Pyramid, aka El Castillo (The Castle), as well as El Caracol, also known as the Observatory. See the Plaza of a Thousand Columns, Temple of Venus, Temple of the Jaguar, and the largest ball court of Mesoamerica.

Continue on for a swim in Ik Kil Cenote, located a short drive away. The cenote has a water depth of 196 feet (60 meters) and its height from the sinkhole's surface to the water is 82 feet (25 meters). Learn about this sacred place, once considered the road to the underworld for the Maya people.

Coba is your final stop, with a tour of the preserved and rebuilt ruins. Walk past two ball courts and see the sacbé, or white roads, that once linked Maya cities. At its peak, Coba had a population of about 50,000 inhabitants and an area of 80 square miles (129 sq km). If you'd like, climb the 120 steps up Nohoch Mul and be rewarded with views of the dense jungle from the top of the pyramid.

Your tour concludes with transport back to your hotel in Playa del Carmen.

Great day trip

Amazing experience! Loved this was a small group and was very informative. Would have liked more time at chichen itza but only had one day and this was the best tour to make the most of the day! Cenote ik kil is beautiful! Recommend renting a life vest as treading water gets tiring and also is easier to take pictures! Found vendor pricing and quantity best at chichen itza.

Such a great trip! Well run and so much value for money. Our guide Ulises is the biggest reason for my 5 star rating. He is very engaging and passionate, while also teaching me so much about the Mayan culture.

Premium service, but at a leisurely pace

The tour was as advertised. It consisted of a small group and a fantastic tour guide. My wife and I really enjoyed it. One thing that seems obvious in retrospect though is that a slightly more expensive tour with premium service attracts a certain kind of crowd. In other words, if you're in your twenties like us, the pace might be a little slow for you.

The Premium Tour was amazing. I did not enjoy getting up at 5am to meet the tour pick up, but I realized it was the best way to beat the crowds at Chiche'nitza. Ulysses our guide was so knowledgeable. Our tour group was small and no one had to wait for others to like in those big tours. The cenote was beautiful, again we were one step ahead of the crowds and the crowds started coming in droves afetr I had my fill of swimming in the Cenote.

Good trip but too long due to multiple drop offs
Manny R
, Dec 2019
The driver and Arthuor the guide did a good job but the day was over 15 hours due to multiple drop offs in the Mayan Rivera before our drop off in Cancun. Also, we had to pay extra as the only people in the group coming from Cancun. The booking said both pick up locations were allowed. Realistically it should have been organized as a trip just for Mayan Rivera folks as we were the first picked up at 5am and last dropped off after 8pm. Had we been told in advance this was the case we would have booked another tour as we spent more time in the van then on excursions.

Chichen Itza, Coba Ruins Premium Service Day Trip

We had a fantastic time on this trip, there were only 6 of us, the guide we very good and his English excellent. They turned up on time, breakfast was a little small, but Ok Lunch for good. The tours were very good. By the time we set off for Coba we had heavy rain, but that did not stop us from claiming to the top. We had a great time with no hidden extras. What we paid was all there was to it. Don’t be afraid to use this company if you are in Mexico, they do exactly as they say they will

Chichen Itza, Ik Kil, Coba with guide Joel & Carlos

When you first see the ruins of Chichén Itza it will stop you in your tracks, they are incredible. I could have spent days exploring it. The structures are amazing but the stone carving is even more impressive. I highly recommend the early arrival to avoid the mid day heat and crowds. Stopping at Ik Kil cenote for a swim and lunch is a perfect break between Chichén Itza and Coba. Coba has more of an Indiana Jones adventure feel to it. It’s less developed and restored than Chichén but just as impressive. You can climb around on some of the ruins at Coba. What pushed this trip over the top was Joel and Carlos. Joel is the guide, Carlos is the driver. Joel’s knowledge of the history, architecture, and culture of the areas is mind-blowing. There’s not a question he couldn’t answer and his enthusiasm was evident. Don’t be put off by the amount of time spent traveling between sites, Joel makes it fly by. Carlos focused on the road but was always helpful and I always felt comfortable in the van. They both went above and beyond my expectations. If you take this tour you MUST request Joel & Carlos.

The best tour for exploring Yucatan

it really an amazing tour which not only shows you in detail the Chichen Itza, but compliments it with a visit to another location of Mayan ruins in Coba and includes a lunch and swimming in the most beautiful cenote on the peninsula, the Ik Kil. the tour gives you so much more for your price compared to other options and in addition, the guide David is a highly educated expert on Mayas heritage, so we have really learned and seen much more then we expected. highly recommended.

My cousin and I planned our whole trip to Mexico because we wanted to go on this excursion, and it did not disappoint!Our guide, Iban Garcia was so very knowledgeable. He had an archaeological background and was very knowledgeable in the Mayan culture. I highly recommend this tour and try to ask for Iban, you will not be disappointed!

My friends and I took the small...

My friends and I took the small group tour to Chichen-Itza, Cenote, and Coba Ruins on January 2, 2017. Overall the trip was absolutely wonderful and well worth our time. The tour is an all day affair, so be prepared for a long day with comfortable shoes. We were picked up from our hotel at 5:45am and I was very impressed that they were exactly on time. As it turned out, we were the only ones to book the tour that day, so we got a private tour for the 4 of us. Once in the van, Joel our tour guide introduced himself and we were giving snacks and drinks. Once we arrived in Chichen-Itza, we were given a 2 hour guided tour through the archaeological site with an hour to shop if we needed afterword. Since no one in our group particularly cared for shopping Joel offered to take us around less visited sites and explain them in detail which was truly wonderful. We got there when the park opened so we didn't have to wait and it was very peaceful which made the experience far better. As we were leaving, the crowds were really starting to pour in, and the line of buses was miles long. Even if you don't use this tour, I recommend using a tour that gets to Chichen early to have the best experience. Next we took a 5-10min ride to the Ik KIl Cenote. It's very touristy and there were a lot of people there by the time we rolled in. That said, the cenote itself is pretty amazing. We dove off the side and swam for about 10 min then went up and had buffet lunch that was quite good. Coba was a fascinating site. Coba has the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan, and once to get to the top you certainly believe it. The stairs are narrow and precarious, but that all adds to the feeling of accomplishment once you get to the top or back down to the bottom. The site is massive and in the middle of the jungle. There is the option to rent a bike or a tricycle that will take you around the site, but we decided to walk. Honestly, I think walking was the better choice because we were able to take our time and enjoy each different site. Watching the bikers, they seemed very rushed. Our guide was also able to take us places that the bikes couldn't go. I believe We returned to our hotel sometime before 7pm. Some people may be put off by the long bus rides between sites 2hr 15min to Chichen, 1hr 30min to Coba, 1hr 30min back to Playa del Carmen, but I think they were perfect because they allowed for some sleep in between each site. This way, all of us were rested and ready to go each time got off the bus. I was most impressed with our guide, Joel, who was so articulate and knowledgeable, that I thought we were listening to an Archaeological Professor from some university. He went above and beyond what was required to give us a wonderful trip. My only critique of the tour is that I wanted more time in Chichen. The site was far larger than I had imagined, and I didn't get to see near as much as I had wanted. That being said, there are only so many hours in the day and the tour was wonderfully done.
