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!

Note: this is a large group tour with Amigo Tours!!! You will meet at a designated location and be picked up by a large tour bus along with 30 other people. https://www.tripadvisor.com/AttractionProductReview-g150807-d12649472-Chichen_Itza_All_Inclusive_Tequila_tasting_Cenote_Swim_Buffet_Valladolid-Cancun_Yu.html This was not what our initial expectations were. However, the tour guide (Super Frank), Chichen Itza, visiting the small town, and visiting the Cenote (Cenote at the end of the trip includes tequila tasting) were all fun and good activities. Especially want to highlight Frank for a great day of explaining the history of the Mayan people. He was entertaining and informative. We also had a negative experience buying the tequila at the tasting at the cenote Samaal. We purchased a bottle of tequila anejos worth over $100 USD. The staff pre wrap the bottles for you for better transportation so we did not see the bottle or inspect it. We packed into our check in luggage and returned home. When we open the luggage, the bottle had leaked significantly due to not being properly sealed. We lost more than half the tequila which spilled INSIDE OUR LUGGAGE. I tried to contact the tequila manufacturer, Tequilera Reyes on Instagram and they are not responding. Highly recommend not buying their tequila. It’s a scam. Don’t get suckered in.

This tour was unexpectedly on a huge bus full of other tourists. It was a bit concerning because of COVID and some tourists didn’t wear their masks the whole time inside the bus, which I understand is hard to enforce. Also, we did tequila tasting (which was included) at Cenote Saamal and purchased two bottles of tequila, which were pre-packaged to go on the plane. HOWEVER, the more expensive bottle didn’t have a proper fitting lid and about a quarter of it ending up LEAKING out in our luggage. We realized this after we flew home and are now trying to find ways to get a refund from that place. I know this has no bearing on our tour guide Frank but we just wanted to warn people about purchasing bottles from that tequila shop because it is infuriating to lose expensive product like that. The other bottle we purchased (mango tequila liquor) leaked a tiny bit but was otherwise okay. Other than what was mentioned above, the tour itself was good and Frank did a fantastic job of explaining the history and culture of the Mayans. I loved that he didn’t sugar coat the history and told it like it was; you can tell that he is passionate about his people. You will learn so much on this tour! I thought activities were well spaced out as well so the day went by pretty quickly.

Great day with great guides overall — from Alberto the bus driver to Marco our master tour guide with his fluency in both Spanish and English to our guide Rodrigo who gave us the Chichen Itza tour which was super informative and passion driven given his ties to the land (he’s Mayan). Long day but well worth it! A+ service all around.

Great experience with local guides that knew all the secret spots for special photos and that extra bit of information. Beautiful locations and the handmade gift store was great. Bus seats were alil cramped n it was a long drive. But it wouldn’t have been a long drive anyways. I felt safe and comfortable and I’d probably do it again

Great value for a really productive day of sightseeing. Just know that extra fees are not included (tax, a drink, life jacket and locker rental, etc). But Alfredo, Marco, and Rodrigo were perfect. Rodrigo at Chichen Itzá was especially great given his personal connection to the site and we loved Marco’s sense of humor and ability to switch between languages so smoothly. Alfredo was so kind. :)
