The trip is an all day excursion and is enjoyable. Chichen Itza is a place that everyone who has a chance to visit should do so. The bus ride there is long without much to see on the way. Our guides where nice but talked almost no stop for the two hour ride there, it was a little too much. The breakfast provided on the bus was more like a lunch, it was a turkey sandwich with a muffin and orange juice. There was coffee for those who drank coffee. One we arrived we were given headsets so we could hear our guide, great idea. Umbrellas were available for those who wanted them to protect from the train or sun. Next we received lanyards to carry a bottle of water on our tour around the site. There are vendors all over the site and they call out to you and approach you but just ignore them and enjoy the history of the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and spent about 90 minutes taking us around and explaining all the ruins. Then we had a little over an hour on our own to explore. This was the time we spent shopping for the local handicrafts from the vendors. The guides discouraged us from buying here and suggested waiting till the next stop in Valladolid, where we would be having lunch. However if you are careful about what you buy and can haggle on prices then buying from the vendors can be fun. I purchased a marble chess set for a great price. Next it was back to the bus for soda or beer and ice cold towels to cool off. Once onboard it was a short trip to the restaurant for a great buffet lunch and a poor excuse for a souvenir shop. I'm very glad I made my purchases with the vendors. It would have been great if we could have spent time in the town to shop but it was back to the bus to see the sinkhole. The trip to the sinkhole took 10 minutes and to be honest it wasn't worth getting off the bus for. Back onto the bus and more beer, soda or water and ice cold towels again, very nice touch. Then we were off for our return back to our hotel. On the way we were given survey cards to fill out, sorry not interested in doing homework. Then the guides passed out some local candies, collected the cards and it was a great chance for everyone to catch a nap after a long day. We booked our trip online and saved $25 off of the price the travel agency at the resort charged everyone else from our resort that came with us. I hope you enjoy this day trip as much as we did.

The excursion to Chichen Itza and Valladolid was a highlight of our vacation. The tour was very well organized and paced. The microphones and ear pieces used by our delightful guide, Juan Jose, made it possible to listen to information while taking photos. The dinner in Valladolid was delicious and perfect after touring Chichen Itza--a wonderful buffet in a beautiful city. Seeing Valladolid and walking around the colonial city was one of my favorite parts of the day. We're so grateful for small touches like a cool towels and drinks when we returned to the bus. Thank you for a memory that will last a lifetime!

We enjoyed the tour with Cancun Adventure to Chichen Itza and Valladolid. We started with a nice breakfast on our way to Chicken Itza. My only complaint is the warm weather the tour guide was thoughtful about the umbrellas so I had a cover from the sun besides my big hat. I strongly recommend everyone to get your sourvenirs from Chicken Itza - a lot cheaper than in Cancun. There was much to see at Valladolid and the buffet was just okay but it was pretty decent compared to the buffets from any of the theme water parks.

Chichen Itza was a surprise it was not as I expected, much larger with lots of ruins everywhere. It was very hot & the tour bus offered us umbrellas that seemed odd to us as we have done the Egyptian ruins in July but I can understand why as the humidity is worse than the direct sun (I found).I found them not as impressive as Egypt. I loved Valladolid we had a tremendous rain storm & the restaurant was excellent. The umbrellas from the bus came in handy there. The sink hole we were taken to was also well worth it, never seen one before, amazing. The video shown to us on the bus as we were going to Chichen Itza was extremely informative but I felt a bit like I was at University not on a holiday. Overall it was a long day but well worth it. I would recommend this trip if you are going to this area of Mexico.

If you are someone who likes to take your time, I wouldn't suggest this tour. If you like to see things and move on, then it's the perfect tour. We needed way more time at Chichen Itza (we only got to see about half the place and we were what we consider to be somewhat rushing) and also more time in the town would be nice. The meal in town was the same as the meals on our resort. Was great food but nothing different.

This was an excellent tour! Were very happy with entire excursion, bus was comfortable and food and drinks were great. Video about new discovery of additional Mayan ruin was very interesting and helped kill the time on the bus on way there. Earphones with guided tour were wonderful, as you could hear everything guide was telling you about Mayan ruins. Lunch at city of Vallalodid was nice, but we wish we had more time to tour in this city. We enjoyed it and was a great value.

Chichen Itza was wonderful. The largest pyramid and the ball court were the highlights, but other ruins such as the area with all of the columns, was also fascinating. Our guide did a good job of explaining what we were seeing. The trip was made much more enjoyable by having the morning snack and beverages available on the bus. After the heat of the tour, the cooler filled with cold damp towels really helped us cool off. The meal all Valladolid was excellent. Since this city was listed as part of the tour, I wish our tour guide had spent a little more time showing and talking about the city.

Although the bus ride was long (3 hours each way) and it was a long day (13 hours) it was absolutely worthwhile. We look at it as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, especially as we attended on the vernal equinox. Our tour guide, Carlos, was exceptionally knowledgeable and generous about sharing information. The meal at Valladolid was very good, the accomodations (seats, drinks, etc)on the bus were great, and the visit to the cenote was eye-opening. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone.
