What people are saying about Cenote Maya

Tour booked via GetYourGuide= Amazing!! Our tour guide Anita and Maxo (I forget his name), were both so great. Both new multiple languages so fluently and made everyone feel welcomed in our group. Anita is very passionate about what she does and is very knowledgable! What Alltournative tours does for the local Mayan community is beautiful. Alltournative tours give Mayan teenagers the chance to learn photography and help them sells their beautiful crafts (amongst other things). Would definitely go through them again

We really enjoyed the trip, everything was well organized. We were picked up at the hotel on time, our gight was super friendly and had a lot of useful information. The drive to Chichen Itzá took 2.5 hours. We had enough free time there. The cenote we visited afterwards was super nice, followed by the promised Maya ritual and a traditional meal. I can 100% recommend this tour with this operator.

We really enjoyed this tour. We tried a couple other tours offered at the hotels too, and I wish we would have booked our other trips from them too. I can only recommend this tour. Karina was a really good guide and super helpful. Being early at the Chichen Itza helped a lot to skip crowded times and Cenote experience was just amazing. :)

Amazing experience accompanied by an amazing guide. We had probably our best activity in Mexico. We have traveled through the Mayan era, we recommend with our eyes closed!

Excellent day, thanks to Anita our guide and Sami our driver
