What You Can Expect
After pickup from your Guatemala City hotel in the morning, head to airport, hop on a small plane, and set off toward the town of Flores in northern Guatemala! When you arrive, you'll be driven to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal). With an area of more than 341 square miles (550 sq km), this national park is home to thousands of separate ruin structures scattered around, each full of intriguing history.
Follow your expert guide through these Mayan ruins and visit the Central Acropolis, a maze of courtyards and small temples, before continuing to Complex Q and R, where you'll see twin pyramid complexes with altars set in front of the temples. Visit the massive Temple I (also known as the Temple of the Grand Jaguar), built to honor and bury King Moon Double Comb. This 144-foot (44-meter) temple encloses three rooms with outside stairs leading to the top of the steep temple. Walk a short distance to the equally beautiful Temple II, the Temple of the Masks.
After your tour, enjoy a delicious lunch before taking some time on your town to explore the ruins at your leisure. Then, head back to the Flores airport to begin your transfer back to Guatemala City.
IR A GUATEMALA Y NO IR A EL TIKAL ES COMO NO IR A GUATEMALA.
Of course we enjoyed the splendor of Tikal. To view the heart of an ancient civilization more than 3,000 years old was incredible. The trip that Viator promised was up to par. Everything was as planned. The plane trips to and fro, the van to the park, the tour and the afternoon lunch was all as expected. The personnel were very good and we learned a lot from our guide. I highly recommend Viator.
