  • Understand the history of the Maya ruins with commentary from a guide
  • Enjoy a savory buffet lunch
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off is included
What to Expect
Your tour will begin with hotel pickup in a comfortable private vehicle, where you can settle back for a scenic ride to Chichen Itza, one of the Yucatan’s most spectacular sites. Learn firsthand about the people that inhabited this ancient Maya capital. The incredible, well-preserved ruins are difficult to understand without a knowledgeable guide, but you'll see the once-thriving city brought back to life with fun-filled and informative stories. Learn about the history and culture of the powerful Mayas, from their unique pantheon of gods to high-tech astronomical discoveries. Admire the stone-carved serpent heads on the gigantic stepped pyramid of El Castillo and discover the deadly secrets behind Juego de Pelota (Great Ball Court), where sports tournaments ended in human sacrifices. After touring the park—the Yucatan’s largest archaeological site—stop for an authentic buffet lunch and enjoy a guided tour of the colonial town of Valladolid. Before heading back to your hotel, you’ll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cool off in a limestone swimming hole, known as a cenote. Considered sacred by the Mayas, these underwater caverns make for a memorable dip. The tour ends when your private vehicle drops you off at your hotel.

Our guide was great I forgot his name sadly. Loved that he was 100 Mayan as they said I think it made the experience better.

We were travelling as a family of 5, it was a very early morning (about 6:30 AM) but once we got on the coach, it was very nice and new. The guide, Caesar, was very nice and informative, no issues at all. The first stop at the market was what was a racket - they tell you to keep

Good afternoon! We're glad to know you had a wonderful time with Caesar in Chichen Itza. We visit a "souvenir shop" due many customers wants to buy a original gift and this place is cerified and approved by the policies in the destination. However, no customer is compelled to buy in this place. We hope you come back soon ;) Amigo Group.
