This was a fantastic tour and Mario was a very knowledgeable guide. Not only did he know everything you could think to ask about the Mayan culture and Chichen Itza site, he was also knowledgeable about other sites in the Mayan and Aztec world. He has many years of experience as a professional guide and a true passion for this subject and for others seeking to understand a different culture. Sure, you can get a cheaper experience, but it will be more like a taxi ride rather than a tour. He was there to pick us up directly at our hotel with a nice vehicle including A/C. He also had beverages ready for us, reading material about the Mayans and would ask frequently if we needed a restroom break. He took us to a fantastic cenote and restaurant for lunch (not the typical tourist buffet). The benefit of a private tour is that you run on your own schedule, no rushing in the crowds and it's completely worry free as he takes care of all the tolls, tickets and logistics.

Interesting and fun

It is certainly a tour to do if you go to Yucatán. The tour operator in question organizes guided trips so that they are not only fun but also educational. One of their preconditions is to make known the extraordinary beauty of the area.

Fantastic experience

I highly recommend this trip to the Mayan Native American area and pyramids. And the tour ended beautifully with a swim in a beautiful and lush water cave.

Pickup did not take place ... but independently to the meeting point. One should not mention picking up from the hotel ...

Very beautiful place, full of sporting activities to do. For all ages.
