This excursion was ok. However there were many hidden fees: we had to pay - entrance to Coba (supposed to be included - 10 $ per person) - bicycle rental at Coba (not mentioned but necessary - 15 $ for 3) - part of Chichen Itza entrance fee (supposed to be included (on original description) but only part of it is (mentioned in confirmation, the main part has to be paid there - 35 $ per person). We got to lunch site around 3PM, very hungry, but had to wait in a store for 35 minutes for our guide to "get our tickets" (making sure we buy, as there was almost no one else there). Lunch buffet was disgusting. There was soup, but no one took any because the bowls still had remains from the previous diners. Tacos were ok, but the rest did not look fresh or sanitary. The cenote was beautiful.

nice experience. Apolinar was our guide and did a fantastic job. Coba: 1.5 hours on your own, take the bikes to get most out of it. a little tight to see everything... short stop in Valladolid to see a church. not so impressive, but a nice fountain outside. short stop at a restaurant/market (20 min shop - 40 min buffet lunch - nothing special to eat). Chichen Itza (1.5-2 hours) - Apolinar walked around with us and explained a lot! very insightful! (Tip: If you buy something, don't accept the initial price, but negotiate - unless it's only 1.00 $. got them down to 60% of initial offer, but maybe you can get it even cheaper...) Cenote: 1h15 - the earlier you get there, the better as the later it gets, more and more people start to swarm make sure to stick to the proposed timing during the tour... Noteworthy, in the email confirmation it says to be 20 min earlier than the pick-up time to be sure. I recommend doing that! Left Cancun at 5am - back in Cancun 9:30pm

It was a good sample tour of different things. Chichen Itza was great , Coba was good, but needed more time there. The cenote was beautiful and Valladolid was a quick 20 mins stop to see the church and square. The guide was great and knowledgeable. The bus ride was pretty comfortable. I think worst part was buffet, forces you to buy drink and the shopping there was way overpriced
