Visit Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, swim in cenote Ik Kil, have a traditional Mexican lunch, and become a real expert in ancient Mayan history in one day.

This tour is a combination of the most famous and the most visited Mayan archaeological sites. Your tour will start with visiting Ek Balam ancient city, which name means “The city of black Jaguar”. Ek Balam is not a big city, but it instantly conquers you with the beauty of it’s architecture. An interesting fact is that until  2001 Ek Balam was a private territory and was not open for the public. The history of the city has more than 1000 years and tells about the power of it. Unfortunately during the Spanish invasion the city was partially destroyed, but you will see the most interesting parts such as Acropolis – the imperator’s palace and the Jaguar’s Altar, which the Indians believed was the entrance to the kingdom of the dead and where you will see christian angels, Egyptian hieroglyphs and even the Indian God Shitsa on it. 

The mystery of this altar remains unsolved and a lot of scientists and historians still argue about it’s origin, putting forward scientific as well as mythical theories. Then, after a swim in a picturesque and crystal clear underground cenote Ik-Kil, lunch and the road to Chichen Itza is waiting for you.

Chichen Itza is one of the ancient cities which is not needed to be presented, because it’s main building – the Kukulkan pyramid was named one of the new 7 world wonders. The city is well preserved and shocks every visitor with its numerous  buildings constructed by not only  Mayans but also by Toltecs. Visiting such monuments as Kukulkan Pyramid, pok-ta-pok playground, Warriors’ Temple and the Temple of Jaguar, you will get a unique opportunity to learn about history, mysteries and legends of this city and its inhabitants.

The guide was informative, professional, attentive and I just can’t say enough to let you know what a great day we had. Smartest thing I ever did finding this company. Absolutely positive all around.
The guide was extremely nice and he was very informed and was happy to answer any questions we had. He led us through various activities at Chichén Itzá and throughout the day to keep us entertained. Would highly recommend this tour and also very welcoming for children as well.
Excellent all around!! Galo was our tour guide and he was incredible! Bus was large and had plenty of space for any souvenirs purchased and bags. All of the stops up to and including the Chichen-Itza was amazing and well worth it. Incredible experience! Highly recommend

An absolute must, the tour was awsome, the guide explanation were great, the purification ceremony a wonderful experience and the temazcal top ! Swimming at night in the cenote is amazing.
We loved this tour. This is not the typical “go to a restaurant and try different things”, it’s a cultural experience. Very educational and everything that we had was delicious. Our guide explained how the market worked and why it worked that way. Understanding and immersing yourself into a culture is what traveling is about, and that is what this tour does. If your looking for a taste of “real” Mexican foods and culture, this is it!
