I reserved the tour of Chichen Itza from Merida, plus transfer to Playa del Carmen after the tour. The entire trip was uneventful. The Gray Line representative, Walter, picked me up on time at my hotel in Merida. The trip to Chichen Itza was on secondary roads mostly. Walter was friendly and informative about what it is like living in Merida. The tour guide at Chichen Itza, Jose, was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. We had a nice lunch at the Mayaland hotel. Another Gray Line bus picked us up at the Mayaland Hotel and dropped us of at our hotel in Playa del Carmen. It was a great tour.
