5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Excellent trip, you get picked up at your hotel, move to the airport, at landing they are waiting for you to take you to Yaxha or Tikal, good lunches, the tour guys are kind and they know a lot about mayan civilization.

They take you to your hotel on Peten in the afternoon with enough time for a drink, pool, beach walk or whatever other activity you want to do yourself.

DINNER IS NOT INCLUDED, I thought it was, i was surprised it was not, i guess i read wrong.

The order of the places you visit can change and the will tell you al pick up time, we booked Tikal first but we went Yaxha first, not big deal.

You return to Guatemala City around 7:30pm.

Tour guys physical and by phone are very open and always willing to help and answer questions.

We had a lot of fun, highly recommended!
