Everything went perfect as planned. Minod delay at pickup time but overall very enjoyable and much much better thane expected after reading TripAdvisor bad reviews of many other different Tour companies. I would highly recommend HappyTours to anybody who wants to do a tour in Cancún area.

Tour Ok; Advertised perks were lacking
ANGELA JONES - about a year ago Chichen Itza Shared Tour

Overall, it was great to see Chichen Itza and the cenote at Hibuku. This tour is an extremely long day due to the distance that you need to travel. We were gone 13 hours from our resort from start to finish. There were a few things that I feel Happy Tours could have done better….first, they were 15 min late for pickup. It would have been nice to get a text or call to advise that driver was running late. Second, they did this big song and dance about how it was so important to have biodegradable bug spray and sun lotion for the cenote so we spent $25 to buy it from the tour guides. When we got dressed and put all this stuff on for cenote, the people at the cenote make you shower it off BEFORE you get in the cenote….so what was the point of having to purchase this stuff. Third, the lunch was ok but we felt rushed. And Fourth, the advertised Open Bar is only a couple drinks during lunch, which was all of 30 min. On other tours I have been on, open bar means they provide drinks throughout the whole tour. In fact the last time I did this tour 4 years ago, they had water and beer available on the bus and throughout the day. This tour does not provide anything except during the 30 minute lunch time. With all that said, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and shared lots of information with a little humor baked in. I would probably try another tour outfit next time based on the 4 points above. I was expecting more based on my prior experience.
