Only book this trip if you want to have the BEST DAY EVER

Everything was memorable about this experience. From the punctual pick up to the trove of knowledge our guide Angela provided, we had the most amazing day exploring the Yucatán and getting a small taste of the local culture. It was so incredible. 12/10 would absolutely recommend and DEFINITELY ask for Angela. I cannot express more emphatically what an amazing guide she is. She made our day absolutely fantastic.
Fantastic day trip from Tulum!

Your search for a private tour to Chichén Itzá should stop here. Our tour guide and driver, Ruben was absolutely fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable, Fluent in 5 languages, and a world traveler. We had great conversations on the two hour trip there and back from Tulum. The Tour company/owner is very professional as well. I highly suggest this tour If you are looking for a private day trip, with hotel pick up, guided tour of Chichén Itzá, with stops at a beautiful Cenote and Valladolid.
A great tour!

We spent our wedding anniversary on a tour with Angela to Chichen Itza and. Cenote and loved every minute. Angela really knew her stuff and was a joy to be with throughout the day. Highly recommend. It’s worth a bit more money to have that 1 on 1 interaction and to arrive early and beat the crowds and heat.

A day with Uly and the Ruins!
, Aug 2021
Absolutely amazing trip! Couldn’t have been better all due to our tour guide Ulysses!! Not only was he personable, accommodating and knowledgeable he went above and beyond with facts, where to eat and what to do for the rest of our stay in Cancun. He also provided lots of ice cold water and beer! As for the trip itself seeing the ruins and swimming in the Cenote was incredible! We left first thing in the morning so missed all the crowds and the heat! Would do this again in a heartbeat!
Loved it

Great tour, guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Totally worth the extra money to avoid all the stops and extra people on the bus.
Rough Start but Finished Strong!

I must preface this review with an unfortunate issue that occured at the beginning of our scheduled tour. There was a miscommunication between Viator/Trip Advisor and the tour company (possibly a typo on the part of the tour operator when they received the booking) which resulted in the incorrect size vehicle showing up to the lobby on our tour day. Being that the vehicle was too small, and they could not locate a replacement vehicle, the tour was rescheduled for the following day. Understandably, we were very frustrated for the tour to be rescheduled and our weekly plans to be adjusted, but it's vacation, and we went with the flow. Having said that, let me tell you, the tour operator went above and beyond in taking care of the situation. They showed genuine empathy, sincere apologies, and made it right beyond our expectations. The guide, Eric, was caught between a frustrated family and his company, and did everything in his power to help us, kept constant communication between us and his company, and was incredibly concerned. This created a connection between us and him, and we specifically requested him for our rescheduled tour on the following day. He did not disappoint, and honestly without his great response to the situation, we might be writing a different review right now. I would highly recommend this company for your tour needs - mistakes happen, but their response to their mistake has made us life long customers (we travel to Cancun/Playa Del Carmen often). Onto the tour review - it was amazing! Having a private vehicle is incredibly worth it. There were 3 total people - the guide (Eric), the driver and his assistant driver (their names escape me). The driver was smooth and quick - unlike most drivers in the area. I was never concerned about accidents or speed. We got to Chichen Itza quickly and shortly after they opened. I would recommend a 6am pickup - you get to the site right after they open and it's not as hot, there's few people, and you're out by 11am - beating the worst heat. Eric did an AMAZING job explaining everything, and you could tell he was passionate about his profession. He answered all of our questions, and took us to parts of Chichen Itza that we hadn't been to before. We've down the tour bus thing before, and the guide on that tour only showed us the main temple, the ball court, and a few minor things in the main area. Eric took us deeper into the jungle and outskirts of the ruins, and explained there were other areas not available to tourists that are currently being excavated. The knowledge he gave us was spectacular, and he was friendly, inviting, and energetic. When we come back and potentially do Chichen Itza or Tulum again, we will be requesting him. After Chichen Itza, we grabbed lunch at a great restaurant in Valladolid, a city close by that we've been to before. The lunch price was NOT included in the tour, but was given to us as a courtesy because of the mishap the day before. However, they will take you to lunch, but you'll pay for it. For a party of 6, the price was approximately $70 - not bad at all. And authentic, delicious food. After lunch, we went to the Chukum Cenote. During a previous tour, we went to a HUGE tourist trap cenote that was packed and honestly uncomfortable to be in with all the people. This tour with Eric brought us to Chukum Cenote, which was EMPTY. It literally was completely private - we had it to ourselves and it was wonderful. It's a beautiful, standard cenote that was refreshing. We were hot and sweaty after a long day, and the cenote refreshed us and felt amazing. We arrived back at the hotel around 430pm. I've read other reviews on here to request so and so guide, and I'm sure they're amazing, but Eric was an incredible guy and did a fantastic job, both during a tough situation and on the actual tour. Again, without his personality and charisma, and fantastic guide abilities, we might be writing a different review. Please remember to tip your guides - they really work hard to deliver amazing experiences and are often passionate about preservation and continuing the knowledge of the area. Please factor in a tip when budgeting for this tour, it's expensive but they don't see much of that money. Overall, I highly recommend this company and this tour - you won't regret it!

Overall amazing experience. David was informative and made the trip extremely memorable. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!
Amazing experience for the family.

Claudia was the best guide. She took us on our tour, told us all about the history and culture of the Mayan people, and helped us to do our tour, our way. We had a fantastic lunch and she captured all our family memories so we could enjoy the expirence. If we expressed an interest, like Mexican chocolate, she took us to an amazing chocolate museum and helped us find great treasures without too much hassel. Our next trip to Playa del Carmen, we are going to look for Claudia again.

Chichen Itza was amazing. Our tour guide Yuri was at our hotel when she said she would be, she was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour at all locations. The food was fabulous, and the cenote was beautiful. We had not received our pictures when we expected them but once the company knew that they worked hard to get them to us.
