It was great thou the sun is killing us! LOL Our guide was very good and very knowledgable. I will recommend this to all my friends that want to go to Cancun! :) Great Job!
The trip was very good and our team, Carlos and Rodrigo, were amazing and very knowledgeable.
The only thing I would improve is the meal stop, as it was not very good.
This tour was worth it! The drive is long but they pick u up in an air conditioning bus. The driver Jorge and tour guy Rodrigo we're very professional and friendly! The Mayan ruins we're amazing! The tour guy was very informative even though it was really hot it was worth it! Then went to cenote beautiful and refreshing! The whole experience was worth it!
My parents are I went to Mexico and booked a guided tour w Viator-We ended w Amigos Tour and got Tony as our guide. He was GREAT! Very knowledgeable, funny, thorough and he answered all questions we had for him. We followed a schedule for every stop and we felt we wanted more time @ Valledolid but it was more an issue w the police as they don't let buses stopped on the streets for too long. Also, the food at the place where we stopped and the souvenirs we got were amazing. They were on time for the pick-up but they made clear they WOULD NOT WAIT for anyone who was late to come back to the bus after every activity. Totally made sense and we agreed w that! Overall 5 starssssss
When I planned this excursion I didn’t really know what to expect .i took my 23 year old and 18 year old sons. I was picked up at my hotel by Amigos tours . Let me caution you on something. Viator failed to inform me about the $23 tax charge per person additional to what you may girvthe trip . They claimed that it’s a new tax charged by Chicken Itza , but failed to tell me why I wasn’t informed of this charge when booking the trip . So I pain $150 for all 3 of us and an additional $23 per person . Luckily I had the money . Also make sure to bring $2 for life jackets at Cenote .Rodrigo and Antonio were very information and they were awesome. Antonio got us to every tour point safely. The bus is a nice size and has AC. Rodrigo was like a walking encyclopedia, in a good way . I gained such a huge appreciation for Mexican culture. They make several rest stops to use the bathroom. The buffet style lunch was nothing to write home about . Cafeteria style eating. I must warn you though that it’s very hot at Chichen Itza . So bring water , hat , and sun screen . If you have kids that are easily aggravated you may not want to do this particular tour . I started to have a melt down as well after the 6 th hour , the whole trip is like 13 hours not 9. You will get back to your hotel late , like 9 pm . Overall I really enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you Rodrigo who was my tour guide and to Antonio our driver .
Our group of 4 had an amazing time on our trip. Roman our driver was professional, on time and got us there safely. Cesar our tour guide was very friendly, funny and informative. His demonstrations and guided tour at Chichen Itza were fantastic, he recommended we rent umbrellas for sun protection before we entered the site and they were very much needed with the hot mid afternoon sun. It was a long drive from Cancun (about 2 hours each way), but the bus was air-conditioned and comfortable. Lunch buffet had a pretty good variety and the cenote swim was amazing after a long and hot day. Would definitely recommend this tour!
The guide was super knowledgeable and showed us things you just couldn't figure out for yourself at Chichen Itza. The wonder of the place is as much in the acoustics, the subtle design features and the hidden secrets as it is in the grand appearance.
The buffet lunch featured a delicious array of Mexican food and swimming in the cenote was magical.
We got a good mix of guided activity and free time. I met some lovely people and ended up going on more adventures with another solo traveler I met.
Overall, I would highly recommend this tour. Just be careful if you're finding your way to the downtown Cancun meeting point as Google Maps has the hotel location wrong!
Rodrigo and Carlos from Amigo Tours were amazing. Rodrigo was so knowledable and the tour felt more like an educational field trip than a tourist event. Cenote was so refreshing after the hot day at the ruins!
Time organization, guide (Rodrigo), driver (Carlos), places...everything was great! I would recommend this trip.
Rodrigo was an amazing tour guide! The knowledge and passion he shared about the Mayan culture was fascinating! Do not miss this experience!
Rodrigo and Carlos were awesome! Rodrigo was so knowledgeable and passionate about Mayan history and Chitchen Itza. The cenote was beautiful and we really enjoyed seeing “actual Mexico” the city of Valliodad! I thought there was plenty of time at each attraction and had a really great time!
The guide was really good. His guide was funny and really understandable. The only point that I wanted was more time at Chichen Itza.
Really interesting tour. Loved the stop at the cenote. Refreshing after the heat at Chichen Itza. Ceasar was a great tour guide.
The guide(s) we’re very knowledgeable and energetic about the information they were talking about. I was fascinated by the engineering feats of Chichen Itza and the cool down in the cenote was great!
Informative! Witty! Passionate. Only regret - no books to purchase. Wanted to learn more about topic and would have loved professional photos and history to take for table top library. These enable me to re-live and better share the experience while also expanding my knowledge.
We had the best tour guide at Chichen Itza!! Rodrigo was so knowledgeable and a great tour guide! Highly recommend this tour!
Had a great day exploring amazing Chichen Itza with this tour. This was a large bus tour, so it was great that our pick up was timely. The bus is comfortable, but the leg room is a bit limited. Our guide Nestor was very informative during the drive to Chichen Itza, and we could tell that he took great pride in his Mayan heritage and culture. It's about a 2 hour drive to and back, so don't be drinking too much coffee before you leave (although there is a stop at a rest area after about 45 minutes). If you don't feel like carrying a lot, you don't really need to bring anything but your swimsuit and money. Water is available at Chichen Itza and at the cenote. Towels and lockers are also available to rent at the cenote. If you don't mind carrying stuff, bring water (it's hot where you'll be going!), swimsuit and towels. The first stop after the rest area is at an artisan shop just outside of Chichen Itza. You can buy souvenirs there - but there are dozens of artisan booths at and around Chichen Itza with much less expensive items (and a bigger selection). Just when we thought we were going to bake from the heat, we left for the cenote. This. Was. Beautiful. The water is so cool and refreshing, and the cenote was unlike anything I've seen! Open air, vines and trees along the sides... simply beautiful. Be prepared for lots of stairs to get down to the water, but it is soooo worth it. Lunch is buffet style and typical Mexican fare - tasted great with an ice cold Corona. Highly recommend this tour!
Freddy and Raphael were excellent! I took my family of 9 people, ages from grandparents to a 6 year old. We took the tour of the ruins, played in the Cenote and had lunch. Everything was great. The Tour bus was vey comfortable and safe. We could leave our souvenirs in the bus while we went swimming. Freddy the tour guide was awesome! Thank you!
Mr. Frank was our guide and a Mayan himself, explained everything in detail and was nice and polite! We visited with our 18 month old. I would definitely recommend this tour hotel pickup, lunch, chichen itza, senote and hotel drop off... 7 am to 8 pm, totally worth it.
Loved this day trip to Chichen Itza with the Cenote swim. The tour guide, Cesar, was very knowledgeable and provided such a wonderful commentary on the rich history of the Mayans. Lunch was very tasty and there was a variety for every palate. The cenote was very cool. Long day (12 hours) but totally worth it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!!
