Fun, educational, and awe-inspiring day
Faith_B

We loved our time with this tour! It is a long day--we were picked up from the Super Aki in Tulum (the tour description says that hotel pick-up is available, but this is not true: you'll need to get to the Super Aki for pick-up) at 9:30 and didn't get back until around 8pm. However, the day is jam-packed with activities, and the tour operators on the bus make the bus time very instructional and interesting! We learned a lot about Mayan culture and history on the way there. For 2 educators, this was very exciting. :) The timeline is as follows: 9:20ish pickup 11:00ish Arrive at a Mayan village, where you will spend 30 minutes being blessed by a shaman and shopping. After this, you will have about an hour to spend at the cenote in the village (it's amazing!!!) before 45ish minutes to eat at the lunch buffet in the village. To give you more time in the cenote, I recommend starting the day wearing your swimsuit under your clothes so it takes less time to change. Leave the village around 2pm. 3:00 arrive at Chichen Itza. We were given 2 hours to explore Chichen Itza before getting back on the bus. 6:00 Arrive at Valladolid for 30 minutes of exploration. 8:00ish Back in Tulum. We had SO MUCH FUN and highly recommend the trip! It's a great deal.

I very much enjoyed this trip to chichen itza. The bus was very comfortable and the guides very knowledgeable. When I thought I lost my phone they rallied to help find it. Note that you must rent a life jacket at the cenote for 30 pesos. And the cenote stop is first, so save some time and wear your suit out.

Delightful Day

Our guides were well informed and I enjoyed learning about the Mayan culture on our way to Chich’en Itza. We chose not to swim in the cenote but still enjoyed watching others as they swam. Chich’en Itza was great. There was time to explore after seeing the major structures and there were lots of vendors if you wanted souvenirs. Really enjoyed the stop at Valladolid and wish we had more time there. Overall, it was a delightful day.

Don’t believe any of the negative reviews. This tour is balanced with the solicitation and actual viewing of the ruins and cenote. There is a rallying point, but after that you’ll be satisfied with what you paid and experienced.

I want to start by saying our guide at chitchen itza was amazing ! That was the one great part of this experience! But all the way to chitchen itza (2 hour bus ride) they were feeding us advertisements and trying to sell us obsidian and Mayan calendars. Then after visiting chitchen itza they dropped us off at another touristy town so we could spend more money there (this added 2 hours to our trip and was not on our itinerary) it was very frustrating.

Long day, bit disorganised and very crowded

I booked this tour as it was advertised as a small group of 15 people maximum with hotel pick up from Tulum at 8 am with English speaking guide. Well mostly none of that happened. We had to get ourselves to a supermarket on the edge of town and had to wait until the bus arrived at 9.30am. A massive bus already packed with 40 or 50 people. Our guide did not stop talking the whole way, a mix of English and Spanish that was very hard to understand. We stopped at a very touristy souvenir market, then had a quick dip in the cenote which was very crowded and not all that clean. Lunch was a very average buffet where we were encouraged to leave tips for the waiters and dancers. By 3pm we finally made it to Chichen Itza which was very crowded and disorganised at first but once we got in there absolutely fantastic though too many tacky souvenir stalls. Our guide here was fantastic too. Very long drive back with another stop off at Vallelodid that was OK and finally back to our supermarket bus stop at 8pm where we had to find a taxi back to our hotel.

Chichen Itza is defiantly a must see...

Chichen Itza is defiantly a must see its best if you have a local guild like we had, you here a lot more truths and its great to get a more accurate account for the site not the company line. we spent the afternoon on google confirming his info very interesting stuff. The cenote was not the best in the area and just a tourist trap with a sales pitch. However our guild pointed out a small one that we sneaked off to and it a was beautiful picture perfect spot. The food was bland and cheep buffet food if it wasn't for the long drive back i would say skip this but as there is nothing else around you are limited on where to go.

Great day trip to Chichen Itza! Could have used more than 40 minutes at the Cenote way too rushed. Shopping after lunch felt pressured and too much time allowed.
