Chichen Itza and Cenote
Michael_L
, Feb 2020
Jeromino was our guide and was so helpful in guiding our ride in and offering perspectives on how to spend our time at each place. The time at Chichen Itza should be at least 1 hour and for full effect 2 hours. We loved the cenote and was better for us to leave at 7:30 am from Cancun to have less crowds at both places. It got so busy by the time we left we were happy to leave when we did at both places. Get some deals at Chichen Itza on gifts but Jeromino also took us to a store that was pricer but better products and accepts credit card. Thank you Jeromino!

This was well worth the money. Michael was so kind and knowledgable and very helpful. We had a 4 month old with us and he made accommodations to help make everything easier. He was also helpful in finding a lovely place to eat. We cant say enough about how great this was.

Worth the investment. Get to pick your own schedule...make sure you bring your swim suits for the second part of the day! Had Mario as our driver and he was our tour guide too for a small extra cost. When its HOT, always great to be able to move to the next event vs. waiting for the scheduled departure of the bus tour.

I was skeptical on many levels about hiring a private driver for this tour, but all the other options involved a full day plus. Having only four full days in Cancun I wanted to maximize my experience in as little time as possible. I cannot say enough about our driver, David and our guide Fernando. When calling to confirm our driver, I asked if they had a guide who could help us. Little did I know the man they booked for us would be such an experienced, kind man with such an AMAZING amount of information. I had my daughter in law and two grown sons with us and for them to voice such a positive appreciation to me says it all. Fernando, if you can get, will NOT disappoint. This man has not only done his research, he literally has lived the experience personally through his family. One of the BEST guides EVER in any city in the world. Standing ovation to you, Fernando! David was kind and considerate, having cold drinks in the cooler and making a pit stop for us halfway to Chichen Itza. The lunch experience was conducted professionally and the food was very good. Buyer beware - drinks are NOT included in the cost. A second standing ovation to you, DAVID! Thank you for making the day so pleasant for us! HIGHLY recommended day trip from Cancun to Chicen Itza, plus you don't have to deal with groups of people on a bigger bus.

My family of 5 was treated to fabulous day in Chichen Itza a few weeks ago. Our driver, Ariel, was most informative, both as we journeyed to Chichen Itza, and while we visited the ruins there. Much of the information he shared, was later corroborated when I viewed a YouTube video on Chichen Itza. Ariel greatly contributed to my knowledge of and appreciation for the Mayan culture. This trip was the highlight of our visit to Cancun!

Absolutely fantastic tour, Micshel our driver was a mind of information about the Mayans and the area in general. Booked with Viator many times now, all have been great tours, but this tour of Chichen Itza was up there with the best. Great air conditioned transport, a mini bus to ourselves Just me and my wife On time being picked up, we were taken straight to the front of a very long queue by Mischel on arriving at Chichen Itza, had as long as we wanted there and then a nice drive back to Cancun chatting to Mischel about Mexico and the best places to visit whilst we were there. Not going to bang on about Chechen Itza, it speaks for its self, Amazing place. Brilliant tour, thank you Viator.

Very cool to see the ancient Mayan ruins up close! It's hot so bring an umbrella or hat but completely worth it. I wish I'd read up a bit before I went to get the most out of it. And after you have to go swimming at the Canote. That's a must. Breathtaking. So bring your swimsuit and a towel. You can rent lockers, life vests and towels if you want. Oh, and everything takes cash, and tips. Be prepared so you don't have to go to an ATM every minute. There is a buffet restaurant at the Canote swimming hole which is ok, but if you're famished, it's fantastic. My driver was great and having a private ride was much better than waiting on the busses. A splurge, but worth it!

My wife and I had an excellent experience. Jorge was our driver and was very professional and spoke great English. The van was newer and very clean with great AC It is worth the price for a private ride to and from chichen itza. You leave when you want and stop anytime you need.
