What you'll do

I will take you to explore one of the seven wonders of the modern world Chichen Itza in a unique experience. Before we will pass to the center of Valladolid and after knowing the archaeological site I will take you to know an authentic Mayan cenote, beauty of nature full of mysticism. At noon you will enjoy a delicious buffet of regional Mexican food with vegetarian options.

Once in Chichen Itza, we will walk through the observatory, the Temple of the Warriors and the Ball Court. And you will see the legendary Kukulcan Pyramid, also known as El Castillo, from the front, and I will tell you how during the equinox on a clear day, a snake slides down the stairs of the pyramid, which is actually a shadow created by the setting sun . You will live closely the mysteries of acoustics in its architecture, which to date are not fully understood. You will clearly hear a whisper 159 feet (46 meters) away on one of the platforms on the colossal ball court where the Maya played sports.

With this exclusive tour, your visit to Chichen Itza allows you to explore the archeological site in an exclusive and unique way!

Marco was our guide and did a great job! During our tour in Chichenitza we had another young lady that walked with us who spoke good English. She was fantastic, a wealth of knowledge that translated into a visual storytelling experience! Great tour, great highlights, wish I would of had more time to soak in more.

Freddy was amazing! I was not expecting to learn so much about the Mayans and Chichén Itzá, I also had not slept before. But Freddy woke me up by keeping everything entertaining, funny and incredibly informative. I was absolutely amazed by the facts he shared, and amazed by his ability asa communicator. Best tour I’ve ever been on hands down.

This tour was one to remember! We learned so much about each place we visited. The only thing is they take you to a mercado/store de artesanías and everything is so expensive there and then you get to Chichén Itzá and the same things are way less. Other than that it was a great tour and the food was great.

first of all, if you are in playa del carmen, this trip is 15 hours... not 12. you gotta go to cancun and pick up others along the way. Then you ger on a bigger bus where Cancun folks already on it so you are trying to find a spot to sit together. maybe tell next time to the others to sit close by and keep space for the additional people from the shuttle. The first is soo rushed. gorgeous little town we got 25! minutes. could have used an hour, easily. Then you get 25 minutes for an OVERPRICED souvenir shop before lunch. That was completely unnecessary. Lunch... its ok, pasta tasteless, taco is ok. Chichen Itza stop was great, enough time, good tour. Cenota was great but with the crowd a bit more time could have been uses. also tour guide should have been more strict on time, we had to wait 15-20 minutes for others to ger back.. total it was another wasted hour. left at 7am. arrived home at 21:45. LONG day. places worth it, but i would go with a private tour. too much sales stuff. incredible thst they wanna sell EVERYTHING to you.

De las mejores experiencias de mi vida ha sido conocer toda la historia Maya de la voz de Ruben! Conocimos Valladolid, conocimos una comunidad Maya y allí almorzamos, luego estuvimos en Chichen Itzá muy entretenidos con toda la historia que este lugar esconde, la cual es maravillosa y para finalizar, visitamos un hermoso cenote donde nadamos y disfrutamos mucho! Definitivamente la calidad humana y profesional de Ruben hizo que nuestra experiencia fuera la mejor!!

Avoid at any cost !!!! SCAM Bus overly crowded ,wrong host, 15 hours bus, awful food buffet, bad planning ,guide mixing up English and Spanish that makes it really confusing , spending too much time in souvenir store in the middle of nowhere and I repeat spending 15 hours in a bus,Expect to pay five dollars for water !!! This is not what Airbnb experience should be about, this is a touristic trap not a unique Airbnb experience.
