  • We started the day with a pick up near our air bnb. Our tour guide was Tino. He was very knowledgeable about the ruins. Our 2nd stop was a cenote. I wasn’t too impressed the water was murky. Not like videos I have seen on you tube of other cenotes with clear blue water. And then one quick stop in a small town.
  • Our tour guide Ray was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and passionate about Mayan history. Providing a really informative tour of Chichen Itza, the cenotes and historical Mexican towns. Highly recommend Ray and the tour. Also our driver, Philipay, provided a smooth journey all day. The coach was modern, clean and air conditioned which was much needed given the heat of the day.
  • Rey and Alfredo was the best tour guide and driver duo! They were very fast and efficient, and Rey was very informative and funny on the bus and off at the sites. Would recommend bringing sunscreen, umbrella or a hat because at chichen itza there wasn’t a lot of shade spots. Also, definitely recommend going to eat first then go swimming in cenote to have more time in the cenote. I wish there was more structure and time in Valladolid because it was just free time since it felt like not enough time. Highly would recommend to do especially if you’re in the riveria maya, playa del carmen area
  • Amazing time with our tour guide Rey, and driver Alfredo. Both very sweet, and thankful that I was able to understand both the English and Spanish side of the tour. Rey made sure we get shade at Chichen Itza which I appreciate since it was really sunny that day. They gave us very good tips in terms of the food, the place, and souvenirs. Highly would recommend because it was so fun but still very informative.
  • Went on a Chichen itza and cenote tour with another couple and had a fabulous time!! Pastor, our tour guide and Felipe our bus driver were absolutely amazing. Advice to others thinking about booking, DO IT. It was a full day experience but we learned so much about the Mayan Culture. But bring an umbrella and prepare for the Chichen Itza heat!
  • Luis was an amazing guide! He was funny, charismatic, super informative and an amazing story teller! We didn't waste a minute in all the places we went and it was very exciting! Make sure to bring water, and maybe your own umbrella as shade(it get very hot during parts of the tour). I had the best time!
  • fully recommend this trip! I had a great, safe & fun time at chichen itza, the cenote & valladolid. our tour guide luis explained everything super well & with a great taste of humor :)
  • Luis was a great tour guy! Overall the experience was great! 10/10. I would definitely do this again.
  • This tour was fantastic! The guide Pastor was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. Our driver Phillippe was exceptionally talented and very accommodating. I absolutely reccomend this tour.
  • Enjoyed this tour so much! Our tour guide Moto-Moto is very informative and accomodating. He made sure to answer all of our questions and assisted us in any way he can.
  • Great service from Isidro our driver, Rey was delightful and knowledgeable. I’m glad I was able to book our tour with them.
  • Me and my partner enjoyed our tour to the Chichen Itza, Cenote and Valladolid. Special thanks to Sammy and Alfredo for taking care of us the whole day and ensuring that we got picked up and returned to the time they said they would. We had enough time to see Chichen itza and the views of the Cenote Samaal was breathtaking coupled by really tasty all you can eat buffet with plenty of options. Wish we stayed longer at Valladolid though so we could purchase some tequila after tequila tasting! Definitely recommend this tour and would be back to Mexico in a few months.
  • Awesome excursion. Sammy was very welcoming and informative. If you got a Go Pro camera or of that sort be sure to have 50 ($1) pesos at the entrance to pay for a permit at Chichen Itza. And be sure to be on time for all time slots. When they say meet up time at 3pm, that means they pulling off at 3pm sharp.
  • The tour was great, our guide Louis was wonderful, very knowledgeable, engaging, and we had the benefit of his experience of hosting many groups and organizing people. Norma was also great, and they make a great team. The package though is entitled All Inclusive, but this not fitting in my opinion. It doesn't include the entrance fee to Chichen Itza which is close the same price as what I paid for the tour itself, USD $40. As well, life jackets are mandatory at the cenote USD $3 or 4. The Sat Mexico app was useful, I feel like this info, particularly about the life jackets could have been easily included there. The weather was very hot walking around Chichen Itza, bringing an umbrella as a sun shade is a good idea. They can be rented too. There’s also a chance to get a simple breakfast before going into the site. We were the first to be picked up at 7am, and the last to be dropped off at about 8:30pm.
  • I had an incredible experience on my day trip from Cancun to Chichen-Itza! The tour guides, Sammy and their colleague (whose name escapes me), were absolute professionals. Their knowledge of the site and the Mayan history added depth to the journey. The comfortable bus ride made the trip even more enjoyable, allowing us to relax and take in the beautiful scenery along the way. The tour was well-organized, and we had plenty of time to explore Chichen-Itza's wonders. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better day trip. The combination of expert guides, a cozy bus, and the breathtaking Chichen-Itza made this adventure truly unforgettable. It's an easy 5-star recommendation!
  • I highly recommend Sat Mexico tours. Great communication prior to the tour. Considerate because they allowed me to change the date of my tour. Everything was on time. Lunch buffet was good. We had enough time to swim at the Cenote because they combined the Cenote and lunch so we get to choose which one we want to spend more time at. Miguel, the tour guide, was nice, informative and speaks English well. The only souvenir shops we went to were the one's inside the chichen itza and the bus stop at Valladolid, which I am grateful for since I don't want to spend time in those overpriced souvenir shops. I am glad I booked them.
  • Miriam, Rey and Alfredo made the tour super enjoyable. Pickup was in time, some history and information shared during the ride to Chichen Itza. Enough time at the place to walk around and take photos. The cenote visit was also really good and enjoyable, buffet was plenty. Short stop in Valladolid (30 minutes) which is enough to get an impression. Overall well done! This tour is not taking you to the typical „tourist souvenir shops“.
  • Great service.
  • This was an amazing experience. The day went by very fast but that was because I was having fun. But also Chichinitza is an hour time zone difference away. So just be aware.
  • The tour guides were fun and informative, so nice that is was offered in both Spanish and English. The Cenote was beautiful and refreshing after the heat of touring Chichen Itza which was also very cool. More impressive than Stonehenge in my opinion! So grateful for the air conditioned bus. Thank you to Miriam, Rey, and our driver Iban!
  • The tour staff was very professional. The bus we were transported on was nice. Overall my favorite part was the cenote. Be aware, it’s a very long drive to get to tue destinations.
  • They picked us up from our hotel as expected, in an air-conditioned bus. Our tour guide, who spoke somewhat broken English with an accent that was not always completely understandable (though we have had worse), especially over bus speakers, did his best to entertain us. He had an annoying habit of referring to everyone on the bus as "family." Nearly every sentence began with "Ok, family," "Hello, family," or "So, family." I don't know if he was trying to make us feel like his buddy or attempting humor, but it didn't work on us. Once or twice would have been fine, but after the hundreth time, it became downright annoying. Because it was a long bus ride to Chichen Itza, there were times that he took a break from talking. At the end of every break he would say "Wakey, Wakey, Family" repeatedly. It was NOT endearing or funny after the first time (you cannot tell the same joke ten times and expect it not to get old). Once we got to Chicen Itza, we were split into two groups, those who wanted a Spanish-speaking guide, and those who were being guided in English by our bus tour guide. As my wife and I both speak Spanish and were having some difficulty understanding everything our bus guide was saying, we opted for the Spanish-speaking guide. He was wonderful. We could understand him without difficulty, and he provided insight into Chichen Itza that we never would have understood from a guide who spoke English as a second language. Some things just get lost in translation. After the tour of Chichen Itza, we went to a Cenote to swim and have lunch. Lunch was an acceptable buffet, and the Cenote was spectacular. If you have never gone swimming in a Cenote, this one is a great choice. After lunch, they drove us to Valladolid for about fifteen minutes. We had enough time to just taste varieties of tequila (the cacao tequila was the best, and we regret not buying an overpriced bottle of the stuff, as we could not get it anywhere else later). The stop in Valladolid almost seemed like an afterthought--a way to squeeze an extra stop in on the itinerary and bolster the perceived value of the tour (though the tequila tasting was worth it), so perhaps we are being too harsh about the Valladolid stop. It was quick though. They then drove us back to our hotel. Overall a good trip. The bus guide was acceptable and definitely enthusiastic. Considering that we were in Mexico and English was not his primary language, we cannot complain too much about the guide. He was doing his best to give us an enjoyable experience and just had a few idiosyncrasies.
  • Beautiful tour! Wished it would give a little bit of extra time to do things without rushing but besides that, all perfect!
  • Excellent excursion and tour experience for Chichén Itza/Cenote/Valladolid! We chose the all-inclusive option and we were not disappointed! SAT Mexico arrived early to pick us up on a nice shuttle bus with good AC. Your guide and driver are both professional, friendly, funny, and well knowledgeable. 5/5 experience!
