What people are saying about Cancún

Wonderful tour. Sammy the guide and his team Alexis and Ruth were excellent. Take a mask as it is required for entry (if not 20 pesos to buy), Also would recommend packing some snacks as the drive is over 3 hours and you will be hungry by the time you get there. You are not allowed to take food into Chichen Itza site but have the option of buying before or after the tour and there is a snack bar inside. The buffet at the Cenote was delicious and the Cenote swimming experience itself was the most amazing/enjoy part for the kids. Would highly recommend this tour.

The experience as a whole was amazing Our guide Ulyses was amazing! His interpretation skills were perfect. He was able to switch between english and spanish in a really amazing way. Very funny and entertaining, he was providing really important information. The tour to Chichen Itza, the cenote, linch and vallaloid was perfect! It’s worth every penny!

It was so enjoyable! Would definitely recommend! It took about a hour on the boat to go out where you go snorkelling, then you visit isla mujeres, have a walk round and lunch buffet! The drinks were constantly flowing
