Chichen Itza is our principle purpose of this Mexico trip to visit the 7th New WOW on our list. Left Merida early to beat the crowd & get ourselves more private tour in a cooler morning. This largest city of pre-Columbian Maya civilization is well worth a visit. The Pyramid of Kukulcan is the most famous landmark & well preserved... More

Incredible place. Guided tour by Jamie who gave us much more info than you get just wandering on your own. So glad we went. Hats, sunglasses and water are essential.

Recommend getting a guide. to tour the area. Our guide and his 7 year old son took us through the various historical and architectural details of the Mayans and Chichen Itza. As impressive as the pyramid was the ball court and the game that was played there ending in the death of the winning captain. Our guided tour of 3... More

Great tour and fantastic experience. Full of information. The guided tour was well done and I appreciated having the time to wander and experience on my own.

We visit Chichen Itza on a tour. Our tour guide was amazing explaining everything about this place. This place is so beautiful and very impressive on how how they built all these mayan cities. Bring enough water, sun protection, and snacks for the long walks.

The most amazing, informative and intriguing day of our trip. Pay the $40-$50 USD for a guide. I forgot ours' name, but he knew som much. We would have wandered through just looking at the beauty without learning the significance of the numerous temples and also the precise scientific knowledge that was required to construct the site, some of which...

If you come to Cancun you should go see it. We took a small van tour (9) people which was nice. Got to Chichen Itza and talk about crowded! Rows and rows of big tour buses. Long lines and did I mention crowded? It was extremely hot! The numerous peddlers made it seem like a giant flea market. The pyramid... More

We took an express tour here from Akumal. It was great. Our guide was very informative on the way there and while at Chichen Itza. We were given a decent continental breakfast in a comfortable air conditioned van. The only complaint was the over abundance of vendors at the site, it seemed like hundreds of them. They definitely took away... More

We had a great semi-private tour guide. Chichen Itza is definitely an interesting place with lots of history. However, I felt as if we were at a flea-market. It felt very unusual to be at a place with such history and having vendors everywhere. Not that they necessarily took away from the experience, but more that it seemed too commercialized.... More

I missed my chance to visit Chichen Itza when I was on spring break as a 20 something year old...Back then, it was very hard to get other young people to come and see something historical. And I don't think buses were as comfortable back then. Fast forward 14 years later, I got to visit Chichen Itza with my new... More
