Excelente!! Pontos positivos: - chegar cedo, o que implica em sair cedo do hotel 05:20h porque são 2:30h até Chichen, mas com isso você consegue aproveitar mais o lugar. São estimados 12.000 visitantes em alguns dias, então vale a pena o sacrifício de acordar cedo.
- nosso guia Frank, extremamente profissional, tinha conhecimento e paixão pelo assunto, então aproveitamos muito mais.
Pontos negativos: - o tempo é pouco! Você gasta 2:30h para ir e o mesmo para voltar e só fica no local por 3h, depois tem um tempo livre bastante corrido para comer, ir ao banheiro, rever alguma coisa e comprar artesanato. Não consegui ver a parte 'velha' de Chizen porque não teria tempo para comer. Seria bom pelo menos 1h a mais de passeio.
Sugestões- tem um posto do Cecijema na entrada e eles fazem o 'calendário Maia' com a data do seu nascimento, é um presente muito especial. Encomenda quando chega US25 e pega no final.
Passeio a um lugar muito bonito, mas com algumas considerações: 1- não há acompanhamento de arqueólogo particular como se refere no site, fomos acompanhados do motorista e guia; 2 -saímos de Cancun 5:30 AM e passamos por vários hotéis em Playa Del Carmem e Porto Morales, o que tornou a viagem mais cansativa e demorada do que o previsto pelo site quando compramos o passeio, pois chegamos em Chichen Itza as 9:30 AM; 3- Eramos os únicos brasileiros no grupo e por isso a maioria das informações eram em inglês e depois um breve resumo em espanhol. Recomendo o passeio para americanos e europeus, já brasileiros nem tanto.
O fato deste tour nos levar até Chichen Itza muito cedo, as fotos ficam ótimas, realmente vale a pena, pois o local começa a ficar lotado no final da manhã.
No entanto, infelizmente tivemos uma má experiência com o guia Francisco, começando pelo fato de 90 das pessoas do nosso tour falarem somente inglês, ele pouco falava espanhol e nós ficávamos sem entender a metade das coisas. Ao chegarmos em Chichen o guia no local foi um senhor de idade que também não ajudou muito, nos desviamos dele, pois não aguentávamos mais ele falando. Na volta, tivemos um problema que precisamos ir trocar mais dinheiro e estava no meio de um ciclone tempestade e o guia e o motorista nos deixaram no centro de Cancun de pé, com as malas na mão em meio uma forte tempestade. Foi uma experiência muito ruim, uma falta de hospitalidade com o turista que eu jamais havia vivido.
Was surprised to find out (when the concierge called to confirm) that pick up time was 0430! I had read "early access" as 0700. Yes, that is about the time you get there! But, it was well worth it! By the time we were leaving, it was starting to get VERY hot and there were PEOPLE everywhere. When we arrived, there were only about 5 buses. Marco is an EXCELLENT guide and Ramon (driver) got us there safe and sound. Very much enjoyed day...even if it was early!
Marco was our guide, and he is as good as all the reviews say he is. No doubt that it is not fun waking up at 4 am to catch your ride to the tour bus. However, you get to rest on the bus for a while, then Marco starts describing some of the history of the Maya. He sets the stage for truly appreciating the moment when you see the grounds. You get a nice stop to pick up some souvenirs as well as your lunch, and I recommend taking a look. The quality and prices of the souvenirs tend to be better than those you can buy at Chichen Itza. Also, you want to minimize your time shopping with the vendors when you are at Chichen Itza so you can look around the grounds, which is the whole reason you are there. Once on the grounds, Marco gives a great tour with a description of the engineering features of the buildings, especially El Castillo. Instead of just looking at everything, you get some details that I was able to find on Wikipedia, but I would have had a hard time seeing them just walking around on my own. By the way, while you are walking around, there are substantially fewer people walking around compared with when we were leaving. Since I love to take pictures, this was great for getting some shots of El Castillo and the other buildings with no people. The line to get onto the grounds was huge as we were leaving, while we waited no time to get in. I suspect it was much less frustrating than sleeping in and coming later. At any rate, we got back to the hotel early enough to relax and have some drinks. It's a 12 hour day, but you will end it with a smile and an appreciation for the intriguing Mayan Empire. Highly recommended!
The confirmation email for the tour pick up came about 24hrs before the tour. It said we would be picked up at 450am and sure enough, the bus showed up at 450am. After that, we went along to pick up a few more people from other hotels in the area. Our tour guide Marco was very informative and had a great sense of humor. It was a long drive out to Chichen Itza, but thanks to all of his anecdotes, time flew by. He also did an excellent job at switching between English/ Spanish without losing the message or sense of humor. I'm personally not a morning person and believe me, getting up so early in the morning while on vacation doesn't sound very inviting, but this excursion was worth it. We were the first tour bus there and none of my pictures have other people in them.
My bf and I booked early access to chichen itza for our thanksgiving cancun trip. Originally they said they will send out the confirmation email about meet up time 24 hours before the trip. But I did not hear from that so i wrote an email to follow up and then I received the email after that. The bus was pretty on time and our tour guide was Marco. He was the best tour guide ever. He was knowdgeble, humorous and authencitic. He gave us about 1-2 hours for sleeping and then started introducing to history of Maya in Spanish and English. I felt super educated. We had restroom break, small souvenir store trip and then chichen itza. We stayed in chichen itza almost 3 hours. Marco gave us 2 hours detailed introduction and went through all the details on the wall. We were very impressed the wisdom of Maya people and the story of the temples, walls, and “echos”. Then we had 1 hour to walk around. We left around 11:20. Yeah, it’s hard to imagine to stay there later. It was just too hot, so early access is definitely very worthy and less crowded. Overall, it was a very educational tour about Maya chichen itza. My bf and I had a blast!!! Highly recommend it.
