Fantastic tour with Cesar, and colleague Oscar. My family and I were picked up bright and early and headed straight for Chichen Itza, where Oscar gave us a wonderful few hours history of the Mayan and Aztec sites. My brothers are teenagers and they felt really involved and never lost interest! Then we went to a BEAUTIFUL private cenote, we almost had it to ourselves, followed by a traditional Mayan lunch. Throughout the day Cesar guided us and gave us fascinating facts. Would highly recommend!! Thank you!
