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.
Very impressive ruins, but very hot. Good organisation with transfer, plane and ruins and back
plane was bad
we came too early and spent too long time there is no reason not to be picked an hour later
the tour and guide and food were very good
the plane back was teribble a strong cold wind we couldnt control or stop so we just freezed
The English guide was really great! He kew english well enough to answer questions. However we didn't have time to see everything. Also the food was great but we had to pay for the drinks which I didn't like because we were so thirsty even though I had brought a big liter bottle of water. I think that water should have been included in the meal plan. Also we had to pay out of pocket an exit tax from the airport which should have been included in the original price.
I think it was too rushed, the Guide was excellent, but not enough time to see all of Tikal.
I was able to see Tikal, which was my goal, but there was so much standing around and waiting around that we could have seen a whole lot more. We stopped at a souvenir shop and stood there for at least half an hour. When people have traveled across the world to see a sight, waiting around in a souvenir shop is the last thing they want. Also, perhaps due to the slow pace of the trip, we did not have time to explore the area on our own, as the trip description promised. The tour could have been a lot better, and so much more could be seen if the pace could be kicked up a notch!
