Great tour! Excellent and very knowledgeable guide Carlos! Chichen Itza was magnificent! Score: Recommended: YES from Denver, CO
Our tour guide, Pedro, was knowledgeable and pleasant. Our driver drove safely and got us to and from our destination with no problems. We especially appreciated your agency securing our tickets in advance which made entrance to the site very easy. Boxed breakfast was unnecessary and in most cases discarded. Coffee, juice or water was all that was necessary. Score: Recommended: YES from Riviera Beach, FL

The bus transfer on the way there was not very well organized and the return trip had us back 1 1/2 hours later than the advertised time. Overall it was a great experience and the hosts/guides were very good. I would recommend it! Score: Recommended: YES from Washington state
Our team (Carlos/Luis/Alan) were fantastic and all passionate about the work they do. Our hotel pick up was in Riviera Maya, we were picked up at 7:15am and got back to our hotel around 5:30pm, so it made for a long day in the vehicle. We enjoyed the trip though.

This was a great tour with the kids, only two hours in the heat was perfect. We still even had enough time to get back to the resort and go to the beach. Perfect for kids. Mine are 4 and 6 and they did well with it. Score: Recommended: YES from New Jersey
The tour was great! Our guide, Israel, was awesome! We got all the history and sight seeing we needed in the 2 hours. The bus was comfortable and had a bathroom. We brought water and snacks for the ride back since lunch wasn't included, but there was a restaurant and snack bar at Chichen Itza. Definitely recommend this express tour!

We had a great time. The pick up was punctual. I just wish we had an extra half hour st Chichen Itza. We seemed to rush at the last part. Also the tour guide should not have mentioned the percentage of tip that we are expected to give him and the driver. I Score: Recommended: YES from Vancouver, Çanada.

Great tour and very knowledgeable guide. Fit easily into a busy day and we got back before 4pm! Score: Recommended: YES from Victoria Canada
The 2 1/2 car ride over is a bit tedious when you're crammed into seats that barely fit an average-sized person, but the breakfast provided makes the trip a little easier to bear. There is nowhere to buy food, only a snack vendor who sells chips at the restroom stop. Would have been nice to have something to eat on the ride home after wandering around for 2 hours in the blistering sun. But Chichen Itza itself is incredible and I'm glad I did the Express tour instead of the whole day, which gave us just enough time to shop at the pyramids and snap some good touristy photos. Score: Recommended: YES from NY, NY
Had a great time! Score: Recommended: YES from Maryland
Victor and Fernando were spectacular! Viktor's knowledge, humor and passion are those of a professor. Would highly recommend this tour. Score: Recommended: YES from Houston, TX
