AppDictions App Review
TimeTours recently announced a new version of Chichen Itza for iOS. This revolutionary app guides you through a tour of the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza. The app gives you a view of the city like no other. You can instantly compare how the city looks today , versus how it looked over 900 years ago. This guide works in two different ways; a practical guide for an actual tourist visiting the city, or a virtual travelers tour into the past with fact-filled multimedia which is guided by a 3D professorial-looking character named Alberto. Either way you’re going to love exploring the Chichen Itza.
Chichen Itza is packed with features like image galleries, animations, infoscreens, 15 now & then windows, 3 huge panoramas that put you right into the ancient city, treasure hunts using GPS, Chichen Itza news and much more. Chichen Itza has an amazing user inter face and we highly recommend this application.
Travel back in time to the golden age of the Maya with ‘TimeTours: Chichén Itzá’. Discover one of the new seven wonders and world heritage LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.

TimeTours is not just a typical guidebook. Instead, this virtual trip through time brings the past back to life using modern 3D reconstructions. The Now & Then time windows let you experience what the city looked like when ball games and human sacrifices were performed here. The new ‘Now & Then & …’ bring the time of the rediscovery alive.
The huge 360° panorama views put you right into several important locations of ancient Chichen Itza using the built-in compass feature.
TimeTours is the perfect travel guide on location to get the most out of your visit. If you think old stones alone are a little „dry“, use the treasure hunt and minigames as an entertaining diversion.
Use TimeTours at home or in your hotel and browse through a wealth information and media while listening to Mayan rhythms. The music was created by David Kneupper, the composer for a popular Maya Jump&Run game.
