I cannot imagine visiting Chichenitza any other way! The 5 AM pickup at a bus stop was on time, with assigned seating on a large tour bus. Everyone slept until we reached a small Mayan town, and then we went through explanations of Mayan culture and received a blessing. They gave us a sack lunch to eat on the way. We were the very first bus at Chichenitza!! At Chichenitza, Frank, our guide, explained what we were seeing and told us where to look. He had so much knowledge and made the experience so interesting. I knew nothing about Mayans or Chichenitza before we took his tour, and left having learned things. You really need a guide to explain things, as there is not a lot of signage explaining what you are seeing. After his 2 hour tour, we had one hour to look at other sites (the place is massive) or shop at vendors. When we left, it was so crowded. The bus ride back was quiet and they dropped everybody off at their hotels. Highly recommend this tour!
Frank and Cardon were fantastic. I got so much information and it was awesome to get to Chichen Itza before the heat and when it wasnt too crowded. I would give the tour guides themselves 5 stars. My big disappointment was that I thought we'd actually be at Chichen Itza to see the sunrise, that is what I thought I was paying for and why I woke up at 4am...but you don't actually see any sunrise which is why I'm giving it 4 stars. You are on a bus. We got to Chichen Itza closer to 8am. I am not sure why we stopped at the Mayan Village before getting to Chichen Itza, we should have stopped there after then maybe we might have seen sunrise. All that said, i would still recommend this tour because you beat the heat and the crowds and the tour guides were fantastic.
As promised we arrived as first group by bus at Chichen Itza early in the morning around 8 am. But of course not at sunrise as written in the online advertisement. We could spend 3 ours at Chichen Itza. Two hours as guided tour and one hour for ourselves. Our guide Marco did a great job! He is a relaxed and very funny guide, who is at the same time very knowledgable. I enjoyed this tour and his explanations of the Maya culture very much.
I seriously LOVED this tour, but mainly because of our tour guides! Seriously fun, friendly, informative and really on the ball and looked after us. I was on my own and I felt included at all times. The tequila on the way home was soo much fun too. I will never ever forget this tour. Massive thank you to the legend that is Stefano and to Gustavo! Bravo!
The tour was with 11 people and in English / French. Our guide Rodrigo explained everything perfectly and clearly in English so that we from Germany could understand everything without any problems. Ek Balam was definitely a highlight! We would do the tour again anytime and can definitely recommend it!
