What to Expect
On this private tour, enjoy a comfortable pickup from your hotel in Cancun at the time of your choosing. Savor the scenic ride to the world-famous archaeological site of Chichen Itza, once the ancient capital of the Maya Empire. Wander through the park at your own pace, stopping to linger over the stepped pyramid of El Castillo or the Sacred Cenote, an ancient Maya swimming hole. With a flexible schedule, you won’t have to skimp on the sights. You may even visit the Juego de Pelota, or Great Ball Court, where athletic tournaments once ended with human sacrifices. The massive, monument-filled ancient city, with 1,000 years of tumultuous history, is well worth the extra time to explore. You can also opt for an optional upgrade to include an on-site guide, who will give you additional insight on the ruins of this advanced Maya civilization, and a refreshing local lunch and drinks.

Chichen Itza is not to be missed attraction. Just dont book it with Cancun Vacation Experts. The communication was very poor. We booked a private tour and they subcontracted our trip to USA Transfer. Then Cancun Experts failed to provide the correct hotel name to pick us up.
