Maya Experience Tour: Chichen Itza, Valladolid, and Ek Balam

Avoid the stress of planning out separate visits to iconic Yucatan landmarks on this full-day tour. On walking tours of two ancient archaeological sites, Chichen Itza and Ek Balam, your guide ensures you see points of interest that most visitors miss if on their own. Break up the tour with a refreshing swim in a cenote and lunch in the colonial town of Valladolid.

What to Expect

The day begins with a pickup from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel. Greet your guide and then head to the ancient Maya city of Chichen Itza, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Going with a guide ensures you see unmarked points of interest that visitors often miss.

Take a break to swim in a secluded cenote, sinkholes that Mayas thought were entrances to the underworld. Next, head to the less-frequented archaeological site of Ek Balam, where your guide provides necessary historical context.

After a buffet lunch, your guide takes you on a walking tour of Valladolid, known for its colorful colonial architecture and historic main square. After the day ends, relax on the ride back to the doorstep of your hotel.

Custom service, knowledge, overall amazing experience...you don't have to look any further! Our tour guide, Joel, has his college degree in tour guides. That alone sets the stage. He is also a Mayan decendent; this made it all even better. All the stories and knowledge...More

Outstanding well-organized & informative tour

My girlfriend and I were only traveling to Cancun for 3 nights. I justified paying for this tour because it included the most activities and sights to be seen than other tours as I wanted to make the most of the one day we had...More
