Chichen Itza was one of the greatest Maya cities on the Yucatan Peninsula—it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Mexico’s top attractions. Explore the archaeological site at your own pace on this convenient private tour. You can also hire an on-site guide or upgrade to include lunch at an additional expense.
  • A private tour of Chichen Itza from Cancun
  • Flexible schedule: You decide the time
  • Wander the ruins at your own pace
  • Optional upgrade to include on-site guide or lunch
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.

Best day ever but please book with your holiday rep. As some people in the hotel booked out side and by the pool they arrived very late and missed a lot of the tour
