"We had a tour with Tacho as the guide and Alfonso as our driver and we had an AMAZING day! Both were extremely friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. Tacho did a fantastic job of sharing his culture with us and teaching us a few words in Mayan. I am bilingual but the rest of party was not, I loved that both Tacho and Alfonso could speak English and Spanish it made for a great experience for the non-Spanish speakers in the group. Although a little bit more expensive, I would highly recommend going the personal tour route you cannot put a price on the service we received. The individual attention and personalized service was fantastic. Seeing some of the folks no very happy on the bus tours reinforced that the private tour was the best option. Personally for me the tour was the highlight of my visit to Mexico, we got to see the impressive Mayan ruins, swim in a cenote, and made some new friends in Tacho and Alfonso. I cannot wait to book my next adventure with you guys. Thank you so much!"

"Everything was perfect - we requested a tour (for four) of only Chechen Itza and had a wonderfully knowledgeable Government licensed guide and excellent driver. The only thing they could have improved on would be that the van had a noise in back and it was hard to hear the guide in the back row who spoke to us turned around from the front seat"

"We had the most amazing time on this tour! It was everything we expected, and having Antonio as our tour guide, was a plus. We learned so much about the Mayan Culture, and the history of the Yucatan. Additionally, Antonio's knowledge and guidance allowed for us to be present and witness the Equinox! Cool stuff. Between Antonio and our driver, Alvaro, they had all the ins and outs, tips and tricks, which allowed for us to skip crowds, lines, and traffic. Definitely swim in the cenote!!! Wow! So crazy! Such an awesome experience, thank you! "

"If you have the opportunity to do a private tour of Chichen Itza and Ik Kil, do it! We were 2 families, total of 10 people. We were picked up from our hotel, we were able to stop for a quick breakfast pick up and snacks and off we went to Chichen Itza. Our tour guide, Daniel was awesome. His knowledge of the Mayan people and culture were impressive. He started the tour in our van (very nice Mercedes, with AC and plenty of room), he spoke to the children as well as the adults. He guided us though Chichen Itza and explained so much of the ruins, Mayan people and their culture. I left there understanding the ruin site and the Mayan culture with such of sense of awe. We then went to lunch at Ik Kil, being that we were in the private tour, we were able to spend extra time at lunch and the Cenote. Your time is much more scheduled if you are on a bus tour. One word of advice: Leave for your private tour as early as possible. We reached Chichen Itza at 10:30, there were no crowds. When we left after 12:00pm, the crowds coming in were massive and it was very hot when we left. I recommend the private tour highly. If you can ask for Daniel as a tour guide, do it! He is great!!!"

"We were a family of 10 including two one year old babies and we had an fantastic time and great experience with this company. The tour guide knows to much about the history, names, and any question we had about the Chichen Itza and their people, the Driver(Javier) was phenomenal by keeping us safe at all time during the trip. But just to let everyone know, I didn't used Cancun Adveture just for Chichen Itza. They also did my transfers me and my family fromand to the Airport and I also requested an last minute private tour to Playa Del Carmen and they was ALWAYS on time even to the same day last minute request. I highly recommend this Cancun Adventure you guys are awesome. Thank you Javier(Driver) Tino(guide) and Diana and Berenice(Reservations team) "

David is a great driver and we felt very safe. Sergio is very knowledgeable and very passionate about his job and his culture.We highly recommend this tour, especially if you go with young children (we have a 2 year old and a 6 year old and they had a great time). We all enjoyed the day very much. After Chichen Itza we visited a "cenote" and we loved it. And the lunch at the cenote site was great too. "

"The private tour is the best way to see Chichen Itza. We were picked up on time at our hotel and beat the crowds by getting an early start. The 14 passenger van was spacious and comfortable for the four of us plus our driver and guide. Water and umbrellas (for shade) were offered. We did not have to stand in line to buy tickets at the entrance as this had already been taken care of. The lunch stop was convenient and while the food was not a gourmet experience, it was pleasant. Note that drinks and tips are extra for lunch and you will be expected to tip the guide. I would definitely recommend this tour."

I have no hesitation recommending them and Cancun-elite for tours! I have told everyone about our wonderful experience with the private tour - including the cab driver who took us back to the airport from the hotel. He even asked me to write down Cancun Adventure down for him because he is often asked if there is anyone who does private tours and he was not aware of your company."
