The guide was good, the guide nice and competent. You don't have to see Cobra. Chichén Itzá is far more impressive. 13 hours on the road in a small bus is just a tough number, you should keep that in mind. But Ik Kil and Chichén Itzá are an experience.

They were late picking us up. I sent an email but did not receive an answer. We asked the concierge at the hotel to call and they said there were running late due an accident in the road. When I made my reservation I specifically noted that we were vegans. Breakfast time came and they handed a turkey sandwich. The guide said that he did not receive any specific request regarding the vegan food and that I needed to contact the provider so they could buy us food. After chatting in the van with costumer service and proving proof of my request, we pulled over into a gas station and were able to get apples, peanuts and juice. In Coba, they notified us that we could no longer climb the building. We were ok with that but I’m sure this could be frustrating to many others. The sites in Coba, Chichen Itzka and Ik Kil are amazing and worth the long drive. Our guides Francisco and Adrian did everything to make us happy and fix our food issue. Overall it was a good experience.

The guide is very informative and very helpful. The tour is enjoyable, however, Coba is closed early this due to pandemic, after traveling 1 1/2 hours form Ik Kil we were informed that Coba was closed. As part of the tour I hoped the company should have been knowledgeable of the open hours before putting the tour on the website. We ended up going to Playa del Carmen for shopping. It’s no Pyramid but it’s still ok.
