What people are saying about Cancún
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.
The trip was filled with amazing activities and the tour guides did an exceptional job. The first stop was to a Mayan community which was lots of fun. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to give us helpful tips for the trip (i.e wear sunscreen, prepare for mosquitoes, food to try). At Chichén Itzá we were given the option of English or Spanish tour and were given plenty of time to walk around after the tour. At the small town we stopped on our way back to Cancun was a nice taste of Mexican culture a part from the tourist side of the city. Over all it was worth it and I would have expected to pay way more for the service. I would highly recommend. Be prepare to be walking all day because it’s a 12 hour day filled with activities.
Eugenio was an exceptional guide, he welcomed everyone in the group and introduced us all to the others in the group which broke the ice and we felt we really got to know everyone. The day was relaxed, no wasted time but not rushed either. First went to swim with the turtles via a short boat trip, saw two turtles and loads of colourful fish in the reef followed by a cruise past the Tulum Mayan ruins, then lunch on the go to 4 cenotes, swimming in a couple of them. We bought the photos at the end, Eugenio was using a GoPro camera throughout which we eventually received the photos 12 days later after repeated requests, not sure what the delay was but some great photos and videos (via drop box). Thoroughly recommend this trip.
It was a long day, but the tour guide was enthusiastic and the places were nice to see! Went with a big touring bus with good airco. First we went to Valladolid, then had a stop at a (bit too) commercial Maya shop with buffet lunch (which tasted fine!), then went to Chichen Itza and then to the Ik Kil cenote. Disadvantage is you go to Chichen Itza at the hottest period of the day. Advantage is, because it is after lunch, that it is not so busy anymore. And after that you will have a refreshing dive in the cenote, if you dare (a lot of people don't seem to and that is funny to see :D ). No regrets for taking this tour.
The day was very long and very tiring, however it was worth the time and money. Very friendly team of tour guides with good knowledge of the areas. They of course try to make some extra money for the local areas along the way but they are not over selling and there is no pressure if you don’t want to purchase anything. All inclusive is recommended as you will be kept fully fueled thoughout the day with a good choice of drinks, Tequila, Beer, soft drinks, water at every stop. Good well organised and punctual transport, nice modern comfortable coach for the whole day.
