There was no tour guide present with the mini van. My friend and I waited at the designated pick up point at 4.50am but the driver walked passed us and drove off with the mini van, leaving us and another couple stranded on the pavement. My friend and I were devastated as we hoped to finish our Mexican trip on a high. We were so excited to visit Chichen Itza, a wonder of the world but we were so upset when your company failed us. It was our last day in Mexico so we have returned to Ireland without getting to see Chichen Itza. We will be reviewing your company appropriately on other websites too.

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.

El vendedor me indicó que nos iban a esperar, el miércoles 16, en “la caseta de la entrada de nuestro complejo” a las 5:40 de la mañana; esperamos allí una hora en la oscuridad hasta que el vendedor atendió el teléfono ( el número que este me había provisto no funcionaba con mi teléfono de argentina) para enterarme que habrían pasado por otra caseta y el vendedor se había equivocado por no conocer el complejo. Para peor no me quisieron reintegrar el dinero. Un desastre. Ahora me preguntan qué tal estuvo la escursion a la que no fui; parece una broma. Contrate al empresa porque se comunicaron directamente por Watts App con el logro de despegar ( donde había adquirido los pasajes y hotel) Cuando llegue a Buenos Aires voy a hacer el reclamo y desde ya dejar las peores referencias en redes sociales.
