I had a great time during this tour and I can definitely recommend it. Guide picked me up near the designated meeting place, but be aware, it usually gets crowded since there are many tour companies departing at the same time. I had to call in the morning to make sure which bus I’m joining. I would request this info in advance next time. My guide was Alan. 5 star guide, funny, spoke great English and engaged with guests. Very knowledgeable too. Tour went smoothly, there was plenty of time to enjoy all activities. Information during the tour was very clear and communicated in advance. Overall a great tour and the one worth taking at least once in your life! Enjoy

Sat tours was amazing. Hotel pickup was smooth. Miguel and Tino were our tour guides, they provided lots of great information throughout the day. The buffet style food was great, chichen itza was amazing, the cenote was beautiful, the colonial town of Valladolid had a beautiful charm as well. I highly recommend this tour, just note it will take your whole day, it is approximately 10 hours.

Well planned and varied tour with very well informed guides (especially Edwin). They told us a lot about the Mayas and the specialty of Chichen Itza during the bus trip. We also particularly liked the buffet at the cenote. Unfortunately, on the day of our visit, all places were very crowded with tourists.
