Amazing Tour!
Feb 2021
This trip is awesome. Yes, you start early, but it's worth it when you are first in line to get in. We were the first ones to the large pyramid, and have tons of pictures with no one else in them. It is also nice to be leaving Chichen Itza before it gets too hot. Juan was extremely well versed in the history of the site and is great at communicating the info. As other people have said, it is literally like going on a tour with a friend. The cenotes after were really cool, and lunch was awesome. Claire was amazingly flexible with our travel plans as they kept changing due to COVID. I really can't say enough good things about them.

Great tour with Chris!
A group of four adults took the private tour of Chichen Itza through Absolute Adventure and had a great time. They promptly picked us up directly from our hotel and Chris was a fantastic tour guide the whole time. Very knowledgeable, and great conversation just getting to know the area.
Absolutely follow their advice to leave EARLY. They’re not kidding when it goes from busy to packed later morning when dozens (if not hundreds) of tour buses arrive.
Lunch was a very delicious, authentic Mayan food.
The Cenotes were also really neat to see, and while they aren’t the best known ones, it means that it’s also much quieter and not super crowded.

I really appreciated that throughout the whole tour it really went at our pace. If we wanted to stay somewhere longer/shorter we did. Chris was very accommodating and did a great job throughout.

I would absolutely take another tour with Chris or Absolute Adventure again. And while it is more expensive than many of the other options, you get so much more out of it by having a private, personal guide the whole time.

Passionate and Knowledgeable!
Nov 2019 • Couples
First of all having a private tour is a must if you want to be at Chichen-Itza without the crowds AND if you want to learn the most about the Toltec/Mayan structures and civilization. Our guide, Hector was incredibly knowledgeable and even shared some of his own personal theories. He seemed more excited than we were to share and leave us with not only an unforgettable experience but with a much greater sense and history of the Mayan people.

Great Tour
Loved the tour - guides were excellent. Not as fond of the amount of peddlers. Lunch was great and the trip to the cenote was amazing.

Hello and thank you for your review. We are glad you loved the tour to Chichen Itza, the cenote and lunch with our team! Unfortunately there is nothing, we, absolute adventure, can do against peddlers at Chichen Itza. The good thing is that we go early morning to Chichen Itza, so the time we do the private guided visit they are meanwhile setting up their stand and don't bother too much.

Educational and relaxing visit to a Wonder of the World
Oct 2019 • Friends
I had previously visited Chichen Itza 14 years ago while on a cruise. While the site is remarkable, the crowds and heat were distracting. For this visit, I wanted a better experience for my brother and friend. This company was a pleasure to book with from beginning to end; when I added on a 3rd person, Chris discounted my rate. I was able to pay ahead with PayPal which was very convenient for budgeting. Then, on the day of the trip, my companions and I realized we would be happier heading back to the resort after the cenotes, skipping the gourmet lunch. Juan and Rodrigo happily accommodated us and Claire refunded my deposit!
The trip to Chichen Itza was comfortable and we were offered drinks, snacks and plenty of restroom stops along the way. We avoided the heat and crowds and were able to enjoy the site, with plenty of interesting facts provided by Juan, who also took great photos of us! Then we traveled a short distance to the cenotes. I had seen beautiful photos but didn't realize how accurate they were until we arrived. The water was refreshing and again, not crowded. The photos Juan took look like something from a magazine! It was truly a relaxing and peaceful trip and we were back to our resort in time for a late lunch. I know that if I go back, I will 100% book another tour with this group, with no worries or regrets.

2nd time using Absolute Adventure Mexico
Aug 2019
What can I say - Juan was amazing! I felt like I was hanging out with a friend the entire time. We had so much fun and he was so patient and knowledgeable. We went at our own pace - missed the crowds - definitely a one of a kind experience. Also the price is extremely fair. Congrats Absolute Adventure on your success! - I'm sure I will be seeing you again. Juan - what was the name of the book you recommended?

Best time we had while on vacation.
Jul 2019 • Couples
This tour was hands down the best tour I have ever been on. It started off with our amazing driver/guide Manu he was very prompt to pick us up from our hotel super friendly and professional. My husband and I felt safe during our travels with him. Manu was very knowledgeable about the area we were in and answer many of or questions during or journey there an back. He made sure we were comfortable and had a great experience. He let us decide how much free time we had during the tour, when we went to visit the cenote and the village for shopping. Manu thanks again for ensuring we had an enjoyable experience on our tour. Best time we had while on vacation.

Fantastic tour! Great staff!
Jun 2019 • Couples
My husband and I booked this tour because we are impatient and don't like huge tour groups. Manuel and Rogelio picked up directly from our resort in Riviera Maya which was awesome because we didn't want to mess with arranging additional transportation. We got to Chichen Itza before the crowds picked up and the sun started hitting hard. Manuel was amazing throughout the day, took pictures and shared so much great information throughout our time at the ruins, Cenotes and lunch. I would recommend this tour over and over

AMAZING DAY TRIP NOT TO BE MISSED
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I booked this day trip over the internet so we were a little cautious. We were picked up at our hotel in a clean air conditioned van by our driver & guide. We had the most incredible day with a visit to the ruins at Chechin Itza our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and so nice followed by a visit and swim in a Cenote which I can now tick off my bucket list followed by the most delicious authentic Mexican lunch. Can’t recommend this company enough

It really was an absolutely amazing adventure
Nov 2018 • Couples
Right from the start Claire was incredibly helpful with the booking process, answering questions for us and helping to organise the best tours for us. We originally booked two tours with Absolute Adventure before leaving for Mexico, but due to our party becoming unwell we sadly had to cancel the first one which was due to be to Rio Lagartos.

The second tour scheduled was to Chichen Itza, cenotes Xkeken and Samula, and lunch in Valladolid. Luckily, everyone had recovered by then so we were able to make this one - and we were so glad that we did! We left our resort early as per suggested pick up time with our driver and guide Chris. We stopped off to get some coffee and snacks before the long drive to Chichen Itza from the Riviera Maya. Suggested pick up time was perfect, as we arrived at the site when it was still pretty quiet. Chris sorted out the tickets for us and we went in. We had arrived early enough so that we could see and appreciate the big pyramid of El Castillo and take some photos of and in front of it. Chris kindly took photos of all of my family together with my camera, and managed to get some good ones that we will treasure.

Chris is also a certified guide, so he was able to take us around and explain the history of Chichen Itza to us. He was a great guide, really informative and engaging and he really knows his stuff! We loved that we didn't have to figure out which way to walk around the site to see everything and that we could relax knowing that Chris wouldn't let us miss anything.

After we were ready to leave, we went on to Cenotes Xkeken and Samula. Chris had life jackets and snorkelling equipment for us if we wanted them, and we felt safe leaving our things in the van with the driver whilst Chris came with us to the cenotes. Again he organised the tickets for us, then once we had got changed we went to the cenotes one after the other. They were wonderful, and we were able to stay as long as we wanted.

The next stop on our agenda was Valladolid for lunch in El Atrio. We were so happy that Chris took is there as the food was simply delicious and the service was great. I recommend the cochinita pibil. After a fantastic lunch, we were free to wander around Valladolid at our leisure and return to the van when we were ready to go. We were then taken back to our resort.

In all, we had a wonderful day and we loved all the activities that we participated in. We were provided with cold drinks and snacks all day, and we felt comfortable leaving our belongings in the van between destinations. My family of four adults had the air conditioned van all to ourselves as the tour was private just for us. It was fantastic having such a small experience with a guide just for us, and Chris was a pleasure to spend the day with. We would definitely recommend Absolute Adventures whilst in Mexico.
