On arrival, a certified guide will show you around the UNESCO World Heritage site and provide a thorough explanation of the ancient Maya culture. Learn about its government, religion, rituals, and astronomical achievements as you wander past archaeological structures. Upon reaching the Temple of Kukulkan (El Castillo), marvel at the optical effects of the Feathered Serpent slithering down the pyramid staircase, created during the spring and fall equinoxes. 

After your visit at Chichen Itza, head to X-Cajum Cenote, a collapsed limestone sinkhole for a refreshing swim (life jacket available).

This was a mixed experience...

This was a mixed experience. Viator contracted the tour to Mayabtravel. Not top notch. Tour guide begrudgingly spoke English and stopped any translation while on the bus. Chichen Itza was/is amazing and the Cenote was fun. However, minimal explanation and tour at chichen itza. Too much attention and time at shopping area. The guide can really make or break a tour.
