The UNESCO World Heritage Site Chichen Itza is the most important and best-known Mayan archaeological site on the Yucatán Península and is visited by thousands of tourists every day. You do not like mass tourism? With us, you start early and experience one of the 7 wonders of the Maya, even before the large crowds of visitors reach the ruins. Enjoy the tranquility of this mystical place, while our English-speaking guide explains everything about the ruined city, telling the stories about the Maya and Toltec people. Discover the impressive Kukulkan pyramid with it’s 91 steps, truly a masterpiece of the Maya. During the guided tour you will visit other interesting places such as the ball court and the observatory as well as a cenote, while hearing their amazing, complicated, and mysterious history. 


After this exciting cultural experience, you have earned a rest. We will drive away from the big crowds to a wonderful, open, cenote with lush vegetation and we will have time to swim in the refreshing water. A staircase leads you to the water level, who would like to jump into the cool water?

In the restaurant next door we will enjoy a common, local lunch from a large buffet. After our refreshment, we will continue towards the colonial town of Valladolid to a tequila distillery. In our tour through the production, watch how pure tequila is made from agaves. We will look at the small factory together and learn a lot about the Tequila and the differences from Mezcal. A fun Tequila rehearsal with sombreros will be also part of our program and fun is guaranteed. This is a unique experience, even if you do not drink alcohol.
