Great Tour!! Highly Recommend

I was a little hesitant at first about trying out this tour at first because it had no reviews at the time, but after experiencing this I will definitely be using this app and services again. The tour was great from beginning to end. Pick up times were fast and tour guide was awesome!

An eventful day

This tour in its entirety what very good. We saw what we were expecting to see. I thought the guide we had the whole time wanted us to buy lots of souvenir gadgets on the bus. It what disturbing. I had wanted to stay longer on the Ikhkil water hole and in the city of Valladolid. These two stops what very short. But what an experience !!! Everything went at a furious pace except for Chichen Itza. So overall what a good trip.
