Great day at Chichen Itza
, Jan 2022
Always wanted to visit this part of the world, left early, beat the crowds, our guide Paul was chocked full of knowledge and the history.
Excellent tour. Highly recommended.
, Jan 2022
This is a fantastic tour. Our guide Josue and driver Benjamin arrived on time and were extremely friendly, professional, and helpful throughout the tour. Josue is very knowledgeable and eloquent. He explained the history and geography of the visited areas, answered all our questions and was very flexible, offering suggestions and offering options throughout. A highly recommended tour.
Ancient Paradise Awakening
, Jan 2022
Our tour guide Jesus and driver were amazing! The trip would not have been the same without them. The stories they told and history they shared have so much background to the beauty of this ancient paradise!
Wonderful Trip to Chichen Itza!
, Dec 2021
We had a wonderful day trip to Chichen Itza with our tour guide Jesus and driver Pedro. They were willing to accommodate our requests and tailor the tour to our needs. Snacks and service were great, and Jesus was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information with us. Additionally, they had secured the tickets for entrance to Chichen Itza before we got there, which prevented us from waiting in a really long line (it looked like a lot of tour groups didn’t do this for their guests!). The Cenote and restaurant they selected were also highlights of the trip, offering what felt like an authentic Mexican experience. No tourist traps. Overall, this was our favorite excursion we took while in Mexico.
Perfect whole day adventure!
, Dec 2021
Our family of 9 found this private tour was worth every cent!! We had an easy pick up at our hotel and good communication prior to the trip. Our driver (Alonso) and guide Carlos were phenomenal! Everyone appreciated the history and culture he shared in depth and Carlos’ humor. The whole family loved the agenda - getting to shop, have a guided tour of Chichén Itzá, the cenote and private ride. In the words of one member - Carlos gave us a trip of our lives!
Fabulous day trip
, Dec 2021
Fabulous day trip! Ulises was great: very knowledgable and an interesting speaker. Carlos got us everywhere quickly and safely. Private tour was awesome. Highly recommended to avoid the crowds.
Great tour and worth the money
, Dec 2021
Chose to do a private tour due to covid and it was worth it. Great tour guide with Carlos 1 and Carlos 2 - they were both brilliant. Very flexible and very informative and we learned a lot about the history of Chichen Itza and the cenote world. Would highly reccomend it.
Good day trip from Cancun
, Dec 2021
Due to Covid-19, we decided to take a private Chichen Itza tour. We started early in the morning at 7:00am - try to get there before the crowd. I think the price is about twice as much as a normal big group tour but with private we safe a few hours of pickup and drop off time. The pickup was prompt and we got to Chichen Itza about an hour after it opens so there were much less people there. Afterwards, we stopped for Cenote Ik Kil for a swim (as we finished our swim, the crowd got there!) then a quick lunch there. The free lunch is pretty basic and not much taste to it. Afterwards, we stopped at the city center of Valladolid for about 10-15 minutes which is enough for us then we headed back. Our driver is Benjamin and Josue was our guide. Josue is very knowledgeable about Mayan history so it was very interesting. The car was very nice and well stocked with cold drinks of all types but we only drank some bottled water but they do have beer if you are interested. Overall, it was a very good trip and no time was wasted on waiting on people like the big groups so I would highly recommend this tour if you are okay paying slightly more for the convenience.
Best Tour NA
, Dec 2021
Our driver was Alfredo and our tour guide was Carlos (AKA Leonardo DiCaprio). We booked the private tour to Chichen Itza, a Cenote, and Valladolid. They were flexible, attentive, and showed us a great time from the beginning to the end. I would 100% recommend booking with Cancun Elite because you will have a great time. The entire tour never felt rushed and we learned a lot about the history of the area. Carlos was hilarious and was very knowledgeable about any question we had. Alfredo was the best driver in the Yucatán peninsula and got us there quickly and safely. 10/10 would do again.
Our awesome family trip to Chichen Itza
, Nov 2021
Our tour guide, Carlos and driver made our Chichen Itza trip very enjoyable, interesting and memorable. I traveled with 10 others family members including 2 small kids. Everything was handled very professionally.
