Full description

Visit the protected archaeological site of Chichen Itza and Yaxunah on a guided tour. Support a local Mayan community that is in charge of protecting this piece of Mexico's Mayan heritage. At the end of your tour, enjoy a typical Mexican buffet lunch. Enjoy the tranquility of your early-morning visit to Chichen Itza before the crowds arrive. Learn how this large pre-Colombian city played an important role in Mayan civilization from around A.D. 600 to 1200, and remained a center of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spanish. Like many of ancient Mexico’s cities, the site was abandoned, and its ruins were hidden by jungle. Learn about how archaeologists discovered and unearthed the site, gaining UNESCO protection and considered today one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. After Chichen Itza, head to Yaxunah, an unexplored exclusive archeological site just for the group. Meet a local guide from the Mayan community and see the secrets of Yaxunah. Recharge your energies with a typical Mexican buffet lunch before heading to the Cenote. Enjoy the experience of swimming in a Mayan Cenote and have the opportunity to do a Tequila Tasting in this magical environment.

I had a wonderful time with Marco and the group. We visited a smaller Mayan town and learnt more about their culture and history without the hustle and bustle of Chichén Itzá. It’s an early start but beyond worth it to see this wonder with literally no one else around. Worth every penny. The lunch, cenotes and travel were really lovely and we had a great time!

Overall, the tour was good. Frank was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable of Chichén Itzá. The early access definitely helped with avoiding most of the crowd. One thing that could have been improved was giving us a little more free-time after the tour. After going through the tour, we only had about 30 mins to go around by ourselves. After, we were taken to a smaller, less-known archeological zone, which was extremely nice and intimate. Lunch was fairly decent, but the highlight was definitely the cenote.

Great experience, our guide Marco was super knowledgeable, kind, helpful and you can really see how much he loves his job, especially while sharing about Chichen Itza. On the Get Your Guide side: the itinerary needs to be updated, there’s no visit to Valladolid anymore, there’s instead an additional visit to a super interesting and newly open to visitors archeological site (Yaxuná) and a delicious tequila tasting just before the Cenote swim)
