- Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Explore the ancient capital of the Mayan Empire and learn why it has been designated one of the modern wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its extraordinary architectural beauty and geographical location are sure to leave you in awe! Because you are on a private tour, you can spend as much of the day as you’d like uncovering these ruins. If you’d like to go even deeper, you can hire an on-site guide, for an additional cost estimated at USD $50–$60, who will introduce you to the secrets of the Mayans and explain the historical significance of the important sites.
You can visit the observatory, the ball court and the castle. You’ll also visit the Sacred Cenote (Cenote Sagrado in Spanish), a sinkhole and natural wonder.
Lunch can be included with your private tour. The local restaurant serves fresh salads, soups, rice, chicken, fish, vegetables and other regional dishes. While eating, enjoy a festive show where the locals perform traditional dances to folklore music.
Your tour concludes with a drive back to your Cancun hotel in a private vehicle.

Excellent service. Our driver was professional and helpful. We also like the flexibility of the tour. We did not want to see a village as suggested by the agency so we wanted to see Ek Balam instead and the driver took us there. Of course, we bought our own ticket entrance since this was not in the original plan but it was okay. We really enjoyed the trip and the service.

Excellent tour. Our driver was Victor. He was 20 minutes early for us! That was unfortunate for him because we are not an early family lol! But all in all he was helpful, a safe driver, knowledgable and was extremely pleasant to be around. He recommended a guide for us, and the guide - Guillermo was waiting when we arrived. He was prompt in getting tickets etc and from Chichen Itza to the Cenote. Unfortunately due to our time constraints we did not get to spend as long as we would have liked at the Cenote.
It was lovely to learn about Mayan culture, and the guide was exceptional. The weather was extremely hot, and the less clothes you wear, the better, but load up on sunscreen or you will get burnt! Hats can be purchased as you arrive for about 5 USD before you go in to the venue itself.
Just to be clear, what's included in the package I took: 7 persons, 114 USD per person - tickets to Chichen Itza and the Cenote, buffet lunch nothing special, personalized tour times - decide your own start point and end point, as well as transportation to and from the site.
Will highly recommend this tour.
For the Mexican government or whoever is in charge of running Chichen Itza, please please reduce the number of vendors you have lining the walkways around your beautiful ruins. They are cumbersome and definitely take away from the experience.
Will highly recommend this tour to anyone!
