What people are saying about Cancún

The tour was nice overall, comfortable bus, and our guide Edwin was very nice and knowledgeable, expect a bit of delay if doing hotel pickup, but no problem overall. The best parts were as expected Chichen Itza and the Cenote. The meal is the least exciting, but we knew ahead of time from other reviews, and did not come for the food. I would do it again, it was a great tour.

This is a great value tour and Chichen Itza makes up for an incredible experience! Just keep in mind this is a large shared tour, meaning lots of people along with you, some time for pick up an d drop-off, and some stops at places like a souvenir shop

This was a fun and informative tour that starts very early but worth it. Great included buffet lunch, the cenote was clean and beautiful, overall I highly recommend this entire tour.

Diego was a fantastic tour guide. He explained the food options well, and we tried many delicious street foods. I would highly recommend this tour!

amazing tour. definitely go for the early 5am start. Super Frank was amazing, very knowledgeable. definitely bring food/snacks too!!
