My trip to the Mayan Ruins was perfect. The best guides from Mayans Explorers took us on our private tour. Saw more than we bargained for and had very knowledgeable guides... PERFECT!!!

Extensive ruins with many superb carvings. Wonderful pyramid, ball game court, rows of columns. Lots to see so allow plenty of time. Very busy so go as early as possible. Long and slow ticket queues. Take a sun hat and sunscreen. There is a light show on most evenings , this illuminates many of the carvings round the centre of... More

A must see, stay at one of the hotels just off the grounds. These ruins are huge and it was nice to space it out and really experience the structures. If your looking for cool suvineers this is the place, the vendors don't pay taxes and only make money when they sell, so everything they are selling is the lowest... More

This was a very informative tour. On the trip to the ruins our guide gave us a bit of a history lesson and even thought we had done our homework and did some reading on the Mayan culture, we learned so much. The site is fabulous ... it is amazing to see and hard to imagine how they built these... More

I was so glad to get see one of the seven new wonders of the world. We went there on a guided tour and learned a lot about the history and surroundings. I looked up a video afterward of the serpent descending down the side. Very fascinating place.

I have been to several ruins in Mexico and beyond. This is must see for its grandeur and historical significance. The Temple of Kulkulkan (El Castillo) is a must, largest "ball court" in the Americas, the Observatory and the great Cenote are lasting memories. With or without a guide, you will not be disappointed.

We were on the tour with Dream Tours at Feb 15th, picked up from our hotel in Hotel Zone at 7:40am and then wasted about 1 hour in Dream Tours 'check in' point. Their staff tried to sell everybody a drink package for $10 extra (in fact nobody bought from our bus). Our group was mixed of Spanish speaking and... More

I rarely review anything but it had to be done for this tour. We this private Tourex trip (through Virgin) as we only had 1 week; to Chichen Itza, a Cenote and Colonial town. Such value for money (for 4) compared to a couple of other day trips. Our guide told us loads about Mayan culture, perfect balance of guided... More

Interesting place to visit and learned about their culture and some history. We got an Expedia tour and had a good experience with our guide Navaro. Took care of us and gave us a sample of Mayan rum which was quite sweet. Would recommend bringing a hat because it gets pretty hot even in their colder season. FYI if you... More
