Price Breakdown:


Open our private gate to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Be among the first to enter Chichen Itza, the sacred city of the Maya. Enjoy your visit in almost complete privacy by being there before thousands of visitors arrive.

The Mayaland Hotel, the world’s first inside an archaeological site, will be your base, allowing you to enter the area of the temples as many times as you wish during the day, giving your party the opportunity to split to accommodate the interests of everyone. Some would want to spend more time at the temples, while other members would want to take part in other activities like a horseback ride, visiting our botanical gardens or simply enjoying our swimming pools, spa and other facilities at our beautiful Mayaland Resort.

Do not miss a visit to our unique Mayan Planetarium to witness the "Maya Skies" a 30-minute presentation that will greatly enhance your understanding of the Mayan Civilization. Entrance is included in the tour.

Gray Line’s Chichen Itza tour will allow you more time in the archaeological park. You will be visiting the temples during no less than two hours in your small group guided by a bilingual, certified professional Gray Line guide. After your tour, enjoy a delicious all you care to eat buffet which includes a variety of salads, pastas, beef, chicken, pork, fresh fish and exquisite Yucatecan and Mexican delights.

Terrific way to see Chichen Itza! Loved being able to go in the back door, and loved the buffet at Mayaland. What a beautiful place!

I was surprised how great the food was, the quality of the tour and the overall experience, it exceeded my expectations by a mile! I can't imagine a better tour for this site!

Overall, it was a good tour. Our guide, Juan Carlos, and driver, Carlos, were great. There was a bit of cheesy silliness, especially around the whole human sacrifice thing, but that's somewhat to be expected. The transportation was the nicest we experienced our whole trip, and the soothing oldies music was a definite plus. They were mindful of things like bathroom breaks (even though some weren't in the best condition, but not their fault) and even though some things took a bit of waiting (like getting our lunch stickers) it all worked out in the end. I didn't find the X'men ceremony to be very valuable, and it was a bit awkward, but oh well. Also, even though we were up at the crack of dawn, it was definitely worth it for the smaller crowds and cooler temperatures. All things being said, I would definitely recommend this tour, and it was the best I did while in Cancun.
