Full description

In this tour, your guide will give you an in-depth tour of Chichen Itza. Listen as they provide background information to help you better understand the history of this place. End the tour with lunch at a local restaurant.

Beat the crowds and the heat by arriving early in the morning at the Chichen Itza Archeological Site. Be the first to enter this Wonder of the World and take amazing pictures with the place almost completely to yourself.

Learn how this large city played an important role in Mayan civilization from around 600 AD to 1200 AD and remained a center of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spaniards. The site was abandoned and its ruins were eventually hidden by the jungle.

In between the tour, enjoy a typical Mexican buffet lunch at a local family-run restaurant. Swimming at the Saamal Cenote (entry included) and a visit to Valladolid are also on the itinerary.

This tour was amazing! With the help of our tour guides Frank and Rodrigo and Alfredo as bus driver it couldn't be any better! They showed us the must-see attractions and gave insides into the Mayas' life from the point of view of a half-Mayan which was fun and stunning at the same time! Really recommend this tour!

Our tour guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and very kind. The entire experience was amazing. It rained for us in Chichén Itzá but nothing that could've been avoided. It would be nice if we could've more than 1 hour to swim in the cenote but we got to do a lot of things in 12 hours. They made a mistake with our tour because we purchased the "Early Access" to Chichén Itzá to avoid the heat and crowds but they put us in a different bus, so we ended up going for lunch before going to the ruins (it kind of messed up our experience because in the morning the weather was different and probably it didn't rain) but it was very EASY to reach out to someone over the WhatsApp contact they provide. They were very apologizing and took care of our claim immediately. We even received a partial refund for the mistake. I will definitely book a tour through Get Your Guide again as the experience was good and they managed the issue we had very professionally. Their customer service is great!
