The trip was well-arranged and the guide was very helpful. She was sensitive to our interests and went our of her way to accommodate them. There is no way you can make a hot muggy day something else, but you can keep to the shade and have AC and cold water ready, as did our guide who was also our driver. Compared to other groups, this one was far more economical and sufficient to our interests.
Our excursion was scheduled to depart at 9:30 AM, after our cruise ship arrived in port. We arrived at the meeting place before 9 AM. The person who greeted us turned out to be the tour guide. Since no one else had signed up for the tour, we departed at 9:00. We had a private tour with a knowledgeable guide, who took special care of us. His English was not the best, but we were able to communicate with him without problems.Seeing the ruins was great ans he gave us the history behind the site.
Excelente excursion! nos recibieron con una botella de agua, estaban bien organizados y durante el viaje Dioniso nuestro guia/ tour guide nos dio datos historicos de los mayas. Nos dieron la opcion de parar en un mariposario gratis y de regreso nos dieron piña y otra fruta que era un fruto de un captus muy buena, sabia como a kiwi. Definitivamente los recomiendo.
Interested in going off the beaten path and away from the main tourist areas? This is the day trip for you! We met Gus-Gus outside of the cruise port, and headed towards Chocchoben in a new van with A/C. There was one other family with us. Gus-Gus was informative, friendly and very accommodating.
At the ruins, not only did he share the history of the area, he told us about the various types of vegetation. As a surprise, we watched spider monkeys hang out in the trees.
This was an enjoyable and informative excursion to Chacchoben. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, he shared stories and facts with us not only while at the ruins, but also on the drive. The vans were comfortable, air-conditioned and stocked with cool drinks. I highly recommend this tour!.
The tour was very nice. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
They provided water and soda at no cost to keep us hydrated sine it was
very hot. As a bonus they stopped at at local fruit stand and bought us some
fresh pineapple. A side trip to a butterfly sanctuary was a nice addition to our
trip. The drive to and from Chacchoben was about 40 minutes each way.
You definitely should bring your insect repellent for repelling the mosquito's.
This tour was very enjoyable.
We had a great time seeing the Ruins and the butterfly farm. We did this tour while on NCL Getaway. The kids had a blast and we learned a lot about Mayan ruins and culture. The tour guide Roberto was fantastic and knew more than others when we have done similar tours. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Roberto was highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout. We never once felt pressured to tip or take part in anything we didn't want to. This was the perfect excursion and soooooo much better than being herded around like cattle as part of a group from the cruise ship. Make sure you try the pineapple dipped in chili pepper bought from a local vendor - most amazing pineapple I have ever tasted!
