If there is ONE trip you should take while visiting the Yucatan, it’s certainly to Chichen-Itza!
Tour Chichen-Itza Ruins with the experts. With our efficient logistics you will save money and time by taking the fastest routes on board of a comfortable A/C touring vehicle that we provide for the two hour drive. Therefore we suggest you to start this special journey early in the morning, to be among the first people to arrive at this famous archaeological site. The site sells only 3000 tickets per day.

A knowledgeable private tour guide will accompany you and give a personal and detailed explanation about the history and culture that thrived here centuries ago, resulting in this great Mayan city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You will understand the architecture behind the main structure of this site: El Castillo (The Castle), an ancient temple which recently has been proclaimed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the Modern World. El Castillo is best known for its amazing carved snakes. Besides the main temple, El Juego de Pelota (The Ball Court) is another impressive building and the largest of its kind.
Enjoy your time exploring, taking photos, asking questions and listening carefully to the interesting facts. After spending enough time at the ruins (around 2 hours), refresh yourself by swimming in a beautiful sacred Cenote nearby. We will also visit the Colonial Town of Valladolid.
