    Incredible trip with a long schedule ahead, but worth it!

    Be prepared for a long day! We stayed at a hotel in the city center so we had to wait for our bus at a meeting point, by Oh! Cancun the Urban Oasis hotel. Our reservation said 6:00am meet up HOWEVER when I messaged the coordinator they said to meet them at 7:10am at the meeting point. When we boarded the bus we noticed there were other passengers the bus had already picked up from the hotel zone earlier in the morning. Just know your pick up time or meet up time depends on which hotel you’re staying at. We left probably around 7:30am. Before arriving to the first stop, Vallalodid, there is a rest stop for bathroom break. During the drive our guide, Vicente, was very very informative and knew so much information about Mayan culture and was extremely helpful! If you get him as your guide, you’re in good hands. They drive you to the city, Vallalodid, first where they give a short tour of the city, but it’s from inside the bus so you don’t actually exit the bus itself. We got to Vallalodid maybe around 10/10:30am. Then they drive you to Chichen Itza to see the world wonder monument, Kulkucan temple. We arrived probably around 11:30am but you had to wait for them to get you your tickets and split the group up into Spanish and English speaking groups (small groups of 9). While waiting, there was time to grab drinks or food at the concession stands and use the bathrooms before entering where the temple is located. By the time we entered and got our tour guide after being split into a group of nine, it was around 12pm. The tour lasted for about 1 hour and was very informative and really cool to learn about the history of the temple and Mayan culture. Be aware, it is VERY HOT! So if you’re sensitive to heat or sun, bring hats, sunscreen, umbrellas etc and dress lightly. The temple was extremely breath taking and so was getting to walk around the area seeing where they would play their famous “ball” game. Then after the 1 hour tour, the guide gives you about 30 minutes of free time to either explore more of the area OR walk to the nearby Sacred cenote (approx 7-10 min walk one way from the main temple) where the Mayans would perform sacrifices. *seeing the sacred cenote was NOT part of the 1 hour tour* So use your 30 minutes wisely to see the cenote, take more pictures or use the restroom! We had to meet back at the bus by 1:30pm. The 30 minutes didn’t feel like enough free time given it was about a 15-20 min walk total to see the sacred cenote and back to the main temple. So if you’re one of those people who needs 1 hour to take a good Instagram photo in front of the wonder or everything there, you won’t have enough time. However if you’re efficient, I would think it’s enough to see everything, get your pics in and head back. Then around 2pm they take us to where lunch is but before eating lunch, they provide more information about these special Mayan stones and you get to do a tasting of their alcohol (it tastes like licorice). Then finally you eat lunch around 2:30pm which is a buffet and the food was really good! They had tacos, tostados, rice, steamed veggies, nachos, chicken and watermelon. However you HAVE TO PAY FOR DRINKS, they’re not included as it is stated in their description. So be prepared for that if you didn’t bring yourself enough water. Aka pack lots of water. Finally, we head to cenote Saamal where they also include a tequila tasting (which took about 10-15 minutes, such good tequila). We got to the place around 3:15pm and said we had to be back on the bus by 4:30pm. It felt a bit rushed/not enough time to do the tequila tasting and enjoy swimming in the cenote. This is because you need time to pay to rent lockers and life vests, get changed, use the bathrooms, shower then get to the cenote. I’d say we spent about 15-20 minutes total swimming in the cenote before having to get out and leave so there’s time to dry off get changed etc before getting back to the bus by 4:30pm. However, the Saamal cenote was breathtaking and so worth swimming in!! It’s a really deep cenote and has a waterfall so it’s definitely worth it! Then finally we drive back to Cancun where they drop off people at the hotel zone first (started maybe around 6pm) and the last drop off is our meet up spot from the morning (Oh! Cancun the Urban Oasis) where we got there around 7:30pm. Overall, if you want to see the world wonder with an informative tour guide, have lunch, swim in a gorgeous cenote and do extra activities related to the Mayan history, I’d say this tour is definitely worth your time and money! Vicente was very knowledgeable and helpful during the trip and everything was pretty organized/very prompt with time from our experience.

    Amigo tours was great, Marco was an awesome guide and we would have loved to spend more time with him! The only thing that hurt was the long bus ride, but I think there’s no way of getting around that.

    Bait and switch

    , Apr 2021
    Well, as we paid for early access Chichen Itza, which opens at 8AM, but we arrived at 11:30, I would say we were not given the tour we asked for. Our tour guide went on and on about not buying from the people inside Chitzen Itza only to bring us to lunch at a place where he tried to upsell everyone to buy from there. Oh and should I mention our tour said lunch was at 12, so we should eat breakfast on the bus, but we did not arrive to lunch until 2:30. We also choose the option to have a transfer from Cancun, which cost more for the tour, but were told we needed to get our own transportation to a hotel in Zona hotel. After contacting Viator they told us to get our own taxi. $55 later we arrived at the pick up spot. 2 hours later we had picked up lots of other passengers and arrived back at our hotel to pick up people arriving from Riviera Maya. At this point we should have been at Chichen Itza, or had breakfast at our hotel, but as we were told to be at a pick up spot too early for breakfast, we had nothing and wasted 3 hours of our tour. At lunch you have to pay for water, soda, and anything else. The cenote was great. Hence the 2 stars.

    Hidden fees

    , Mar 2021
    We had a good time at the cenote and Chichen Itza, but there were so many hidden fees. We did not know that our package didn’t include a tax and that lunch doesn’t include drinks. Also note your cenote ticket doesn’t include a locker nor does it include the require life jacket. Overall a good experience, but I don’t see the point of a package if it doesn’t cover everything

    Dear Amig@ We appreciate your comments. We would like to comment that in the product, in the "What's included" section, it is indicated that drinks are not included and the payment of the local tax. We understand that you may have forgotten this part, however we are glad to hear that overall it was an enjoyable experience. Dulce, Amigo Tours

    Wonderful tour with very knowledgeable guide on the bus and at chichen itza. Buffet was great. I would have skipped the cenote personally, as it just added time but otherwise the tour was great. I was happy Marco enforced mask wearing however I would recommend ensuring temperature checks and masks are on all guests before boarding the the bus.
