Magical & Worth It
Jul. 2021 • Family
We enjoyed the experience. Jorge, our bus tour guide, was amazing. It was a hot day, if you come in the summer get ready to sweat. I recommend that you ask for water as often as you need to stay hydrated because there are 60 plus guests in the bus, which is hard to keep up with while giving the information prior to arriving to your destination. Our tour guides did the best to keep up with the drinks. Again, Jorge was amazing, he provided such great information and his personality made it even better! We met some amazing people as well and had a great time. Our favorite part was the cenote. We would've love to stay there longer, after sweating bullets at Chichen Itza it was like entering heaven.

Gracias Jorge! You are the BEST!

Dear Noraliz , This summer our tourist ports have been so populated with visitors from all over the world that we do not want them to stay out of our activities even when the request are outnumbered. To keep a responsible balance, we are being to rigurous with the prevention protocols of Bio Security, some counted times, we travel at full capacity but, with the guarantee that everyone on board is completely safe and without any symptoms de enfermedad infecciosa. Otherwise we would be forced to rise our prices and this would affect you, our customers, putting affordable quiality away from your budgets. For more exigent customers we recommend a private tour where you travel with your family or friends only and no one else but you goes on board but, this tours are way more expensive ($300-500 USD per person). Jorge is one of our most experienced tour guides and very knowledgable ot the Mayan Culture, we will let him know about your comments. Most of our tour guides are very qualified and they will make you spend these hours of your trip in a very special, interesting and funny ways. Thank you very much for sharing with us your particular experience. We are always looking forward to bring you the best. Kind Regards

Chichen Itza deserves to be a wonder!
May 2021
We travel with the family to Cancun. We made a small group of 9 people. We were picked up on time. The route goes first to pickup the rest of the travelers and it takes like one hour to get on the way to the road however it is understandable since it is a shared transportation.

While on the bus Tour guide Avelino, who is a very experienced guide and seems to be an expert in Mayan culture, tells you amazing stories about the Mayans, their customs, their beliefs, etc.

We arrived to a Maya villa where a Shaman gave us a healing therapy in Mayan language. This kind of ritual evokes special energies that make the shaman know a little about you just by feeling your energy and thus tell you what happens with your health or your life etc. Of course, we respect and were very objective about it.

We loved the Mexican food served in the buffet. This was the first really authentic Mexican food that we enjoyed a lot.

I won’t forget that it was very sunny with an intense heat, you really need to be drinking water all the time and bring something to be safe under the sun ray.

When entering to Chichen Itza we saw a lot of vendors invading the archaeological site, they are even inside all over the place. We checked some of their handicrafts just by curiosity, they looked of a very low quality and made from cheap materials. We ended buying some little hand carved stones at the Maya Villa.

The archeological site was amazing, better than expected!

Cenote was lovely too.

We learned a lot and spent a great time!

Very recommendable!!!

A pleasant experience from start to finish!
Jan. 2021
We had a great attention since the first contact. A customer service agent contacted us to make sure we had received our pick-up information. The staff was on time for us and took us to the bus. It took a bit of time for our departure. The guide on board was in charge of keeping us very well entertained all the way, by telling us very interesting things about the Mayan culture.

I loved the touch of mysticism that is felt all the time since you can find native people everywhere around you.

In the restaurant they grow the fruits and vegetables that they use to prepare the dishes. The buffet is very tasty with several mexican flavors.

The entrance to Chichen Itza was not as crowded as I had imagined. In fact, during the week, the archaeological site is emptier. The Mayans were great geniuses.

The time to cool off in the cenote is short but, just enough to take a dip. The visit to Valladolid is kind of short but we were clear about it since they explain this is a plus in the description of the activity.

I loved going to Chichen Itza with Tourballoon Travel. I will recommend it to my friends when they come to Cancun.

Dear customer, Thanks for sharing your kind opinion! We appreciate so much when our travelers take their time to write about us. About the time for the pickups, remember this is a shared pickup transportation and we organize our operations in such a way that we can cover (on time) more than 400 hotels early in the morning. Definitely the Maya was one of the greatest ancient civilizations from our history. It really worth the time to spend to learn more about their culture. We always treat our customers as part of our family. You will be always welcome! Regards

Excellent cultural experience: Chichen Itza & Valladolid in a single day
Jul. 2019 • Couples
My husband and I were looking forward to discover the mayan culture in a practical and complete way, so we've decided to give a try for a guided tour searching in tripdavisor instead of renting a car and stress out with time driving from Cancun: We were surprised by our Tour Balloon Chichen Itza - Valladolid choice! We had the perfect day to explore the mayan architecture learning from our guides as well as to refresh and swim in the Samaal cenote,walk along the colorful Valladolid town and have delicious mayan specialities with all inclusive buffet. We had time to feel the local vibe and even to shop with confidence. The transportation back and forward was a top comfortable choice after a long day of activities, to rest and recharge with a/c + wifi ( off/on depending on the road ) and the service along the tour was friendly and efficient. If you are willing to have a cultural day in the region without stress about finding your way, i really recommend you to book this tour that has everything you need to enjoy, explore and learn while being pampered by the local experts.
