Amazing experience

Carlos was a fantastic guide who offered I formTion and answered questions but gave plenty of time to explore and shop on our own! Delicious lunch buffet! Informative planetarium movie about Mayan culture! Refreshing cenote Ikil to cool off after a hot day at Chichen Itza! I recommend this small exclusive tour to anyone!

Too much time spent outside the site trying to sell me stuff

The site is amazing. Tour guide was just okay. Food was good. Bus driver was great and did his best to help when bus broke down. Too bad we didn't get to see the cnote. The pick up arrangement was very confusing. I was sent notifications for two different times and locations and I had to take a cab to second pick up location

Excellent tour very informative and felt very personal being in a small group. Didn’t stop at any tourist traps, although you can’t avoid them at chichin Itza The cenote was excellent and lovely to cool down in. The lunch at hotel was really nice too, plenty of choice!
