Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Very cool place to see! Many merchants selling goods throughout, so not only do you get to see and learn about ancient history but you also have the opportunity to purchase some really inexpensive keepsakes. Just make sure to take plenty of sunscreen, water, and single US dollars.Reviewed by: Doug M, April 2014
Very professional staff. Tour was very in depth information provided.Reviewed by: Claudio J, April 2014
We were picked up right on time at the Iberostar Cancun. Pleasant start to the trip which soon turned sour when we had to wait around in the tour bus while the staff went in search of people who were supposed to be waiting to be picked up at several other hotels. Once everyone was picked up the rest of the trip went very well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The visit to the Cenote was amazing, the lunch was nice, beautiful location for it. The visit to Chichen Itza could have been as amazing if not for the heat which was unbearable. A hat is not sufficient protection from the heat, an umbrella would have been better as well as one of those water bottles with the fan that you can spritz with to cool you down (sold at Disney) If we knew just how unbearable the heat would have been we would have brought that water bottle fan from home and the umbrella from the hotel. We will definitely visit Chichen Itza again to enjoy it at our leisure and come prepared for the heat next time. Over all rating would be a 4.5 starReviewed by: Brian, April 2014
grate day!!!!Reviewed by: MAGALENA C, April 2014
First of all I will start by saying that Chichen Itza is a very long way from Cancun, be prepared for a long time on the bus.
We spent 2 hours picking people up in the Cancun area from hotels etc. We were picked up at 7.30, didn't leave the Cancun hotel zone until after 9.30.
The bus was pretty uncomfortable. The "guides" weren't the best at all. The main guy (who did speak 3 languages) had no enthusiasm whatsoever. He just droned on.
Before we got to Chichen Itza he spoke for about 15 minutes about these medallions we were expected/encouraged to buy once we got there. Unnecessary.
The stop off at the sacred cenote for a swim was good, albeit very busy.
The tour of Chichen Itza was with the other "guide" from the bus, he was better - more interesting to listen to. We had an hour or so (optional) with him and then wandered off on our own.
Back on the bus for the long journey back to Cancun with plenty of "encouragement" on the way back that we should tip at least 10% of the cost of the trip.
All in all I can't say that I enjoyed the majority of the day (7 hours on a bus) and can't recommend this tour.
