This tour was the highlight of my trip. Frank is an exception man who is service orientated. Unfortunately I forgot the name of the guide who showed us around inside Chitzen Itza. He is so good so knowledgeable he really made my trip. His English is so good audible and clear. My hotel pick up was a bit late pick up time was 4:40 he came 5:00. The car was so dirty and smelly. I was glad it was not the one we were going to use to Chitzen Itza. The bus to Chitzen Itza was clean and the lunch box had a good mix of nice treats to refresh after all the time spent in the sun. We really beat the crowds which meant we had a good opportunity to take good pictures and avoid the heat. Thank you for the good service.

Muy conforme con el trato cordial y amable del guía y conductor Frank y Omar. La guía en el tour arqueológico fue Elda, quien nos ofreció un muy completo y didáctico paseo desplegando parte de su conocimiento sobre esta maravillosa cultura. Todos tuvieron un muy buen manejo de los tiempos, explicaciones claras. Hicieron nuestra excursión muy amena y alegre, y aprendimos mucho.

Was beautiful trip
Buen servicio, transporte cómodo, excelente guía y muy bien coordinado. Felicitaciones!
We had a great day out to Chchen Itza. We got picked up around 6am from our hotel in Riviera Maya (Royalton) by a small mini bus. We then met a larger coach at a service station around 15minute drive away. That's where we met Marco, our tour guide. The bus journey from there was a couple of hours but Marco gave us lots of information about the Mayan culture on the way there which was really interesting. The journey flew by. We got to Chichen Itza around 9, before the crowds. Chichen Itza was amazing and Marco has so much knowledge, it was truly fascinating. We were back at our hotel before 3. Brilliant trip, I would definitely recommend! Thank you Amigo Tours.
Wonderful experience, very friendly guides (Frank and Mario). Mario was extremely knowledgeable. Also really liked that I was picked up early and back at my Hotel at 2pm as I did have some time restrictions on my side. Will definitely recommend Amigo Tours!!
Our guide was Frank and our driver was Jacinto, very sociable and knowledgeable. Frank was very informative during the whole tour which means I learned so much about the Mayan culture. I would recommend to anyone to take the early morning tour it is so worth it.
Great experience. Very informative. You have to be up very early but it's worth it. We were the first tour there and by the time the major crowds arrived, we were leaving. The tour guide was excellent.
