It was a hot day but they did an amazing job of trying to keep us cool and happy! They offered us umbrellas and water to bring inside while we were at Chichen Itza. Throughout the day, there were multiple drinks offered to keep us cool as well. The bus did sometimes feel hot still when we returned from activities. Overall, I would do this tour if I were traveling with someone new :).

There were three babies under 1 year on the tour. That made it extremely stressful and hard to hear. I would strongly recommend that this tour is promoted as adults only. Having babies on the tour made is less enjoyable and fun because of babies crying for the majority of the bus tour.

It was a great tour. Nice and informative tour guides. Clean bus and safe driver. My only negative feedback is that before booking the trip, I asked customer support if the cenote stop is Cenote Ik Kil and she said yes. The trip actually stopped at Cenote Samaal. It was also a nice cenote but it would have been nice if the customer service rep was accurate when giving information.

For a one day tour, the time was budgeted well. The tour guides were really good and I usually don't pay attention to such things, but the bus driver was very good. I brought was I was told to bring, and by doing so was short having a towel. I figured since it wasn't on the list of things to bring, one would be supplied at the cenote.

Our trip was on Oct 29/17. Bus 300 I love the staff who were with us during the trip. The tour guides (Norma and Alberto) were knowledgable and were informative. Norma had pictures and illustrations while discussing history which was nice as we were able to visualize what she was talking about. Alberto was very witty!! I enjoyed the trip because of his jokes!! 🙂 Boyo was our tour conductor, he served us drinks and bread during the whole trip. Very warm and friendly! And Alfredo was our driver who brought us home safe! Wonderful team I would say and we were well taken care of. -The tour bus was new and clean. It also had a small washroom. We very comfortable during the whole trip. -The food at the restaurant was okay. Not very appetizing to me. -You will stop by a souvenir shop before going to chichen itza. I find that the items there were more expensive than what people are selling at the Chichen itza site. They have a fixed price at the shop while you can bargain at Chichen itza. Plenty of vendors there! -Just a reminder though to be back in the bus on time! -Chichen itza and cenote were worth the trip. ❤️

it was incredibly confusing and difficult to understand Jesus because he went from Spanish to English every sentence. Consequently, there were several people who were confused about where to go, where not to go, when to be where, etc. I'd recommend that the tour guide complete the entire thought/message in one language and then say the entire thing again in the other. That would be easier for people to understand. That said - our actual site tour (at the site of Chichen Itza) with Jimmy was spectacular. He was great.

Jesus and the team were really nice. I wish there was more time spent at chichen itza! Instead of the long stay at the lunch /tourist souvenir trap. Manual have a superb description of chichen itza. English was very proficient! The ride back was a little bumpy. The driver could have slowed down a little. Lastly, some Pirolo were dropped off pretty far from the lobby area while in the rain. I thought at the price that we paid, they could have been dropped off in front of the lobby , especially because it was raining cats and dogs!!!! Just common courtesy!

We are a deaf couple. The speaking guide tour was worthless to us naturally. We paid the tour but we couldn't learn anything from a guide tour. It would be nice if the readily script is provided. And, the buffet lunch wasn't what we expected. The quality of food wasn't exactly enjoyable. I got a bad stomach virus after I ate. Wouldn't recommend that restaurant. The activity of Chichen Itza and Cenote was fabulous! Also, the transportation was smooth and easy transition which we really enjoyed. The guide tours really cared about us and very attentive to us. Would recommend this activity if you want to do two activities: Chichen Itza and Cenote. If you want to spend more time at Chichen Itza then don't take this tour. Our time at Chichen Itza was a very short time which we would like to spend more time there. If you want to hit two activities in a day, then take this tour. Cenote was fun but if you want to spend there a bit longer then you are better off finding another cenote somewhere else. We spent there for an hour which wasn't enough time. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our trip to Chichen Itza.

And on the return trip when we got into Cancun instead of using same coach to drop us all of at differant hotels they seperated us into smaller mini busess and got us all back so much fasterThankyou for a lovely day.

This was my second Chichen Itza tour. The first was with a different company that had a poor tour guide, passable lunch, and dirty cenote. This tour, however, was great for me and four friends. Our guide was a retired history professor who was knowledgeable and interesting. He was the star of the trip! A trip to Il Kil cenote was included. The cenote was in a park-like area with several food venues. Several of us did not swim in the cenote but had an enjoyable time eating, talking, and relaxing. The bus ride was enjoyable and comfortable. The included lunch was just okay. We stopped for shopping and that was fun and NOT high pressure. I would book Cancun Adventure Tours a third time!
