The tour was promised in English, the tour, in reality, was 80% Spanish 20% English. The tour guide spoke with poor English, poor grammar and lack of location-specific vocabulary. I didn't understand a lot of what I was looking at. There were many things that the tour guide didn't know anything about and he was rude to me when I asked about them, telling me it wasn't important for the tour.We had to pay additional costs to enter the cenotes, we were not advised this before. This brought the cost up by around £15 P/P.

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.
