Our tour guide Nathaniel was great, excellent English, friendly and punctual. We highly recommended this agency.
Our tour was definitely one of he best that I have been on during my travels and use of guided tours. The transit was comfortable both in the vehicle outfitting and in the driver's care for the road. With that beautiful setting to watch as we drove it was quite an almost therapeutic drive. The monuments and what was been uncovered of the ancient city is breathtaking. The works of the Mayan people leave me inspired and filled with reverence. Guatemala has done a fabulous job of restoration. Finally, our tour guide, Wilson, was absolutely the best ever. He were the only English speakers in a Spanish speaking tour group. He graciously performed bilingual narrative throughout. During the tour he gave us lots of time to walk and enjoy the setting. No rushing from here to there. And he has a passion and a deep knowledge about what he shared with us. He was informative, charming, and quite enjoyable to listen to. I have been on a dozen or so guided day trips in different parts of the world and Wilson was so far the best I have experienced. Great guide. Great tour.
Tikal is absolutely amazing and you simply cannot go to Guatemala without seeing this jewel. The programme of the tour, the organisation and the tour guide were all great and this tour was worth every single penny paid.
Tikal was a year ago. It was my second time there. This time I took my adult son. The tour was quite interesting as I remember. It did not cover several structures I covered the first time, but we were on an OAT tour with our own guides. This tour covered a good bit....probably enough fir most people.
The tour was amazing, it was made super special because we had a great tour guide! Erdozain was so knowledgeable and had such a great energy! He taught us about the vegetation, wildlife and also the ruins! Highlights for us we're seeing all the birds, animals and taking short cuts through the jungle
In general this tour was awesome, the park is majestic and the guide was knowledgeable but I didn't over load your brain with useless information. My only big complaint is that the tour company was an hour late from the schedule time to pick us up; they forgot to pick us up until I called.
We loved this tour! Erdo, our tour guide, was super friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. We learned so much on this tour we were sad to say goodbye at the end. It's worth the money. Lunch was great, and Erdo does his best to explain as many aspects about Tikal as possible. He's also super flexible so of you want to do something, you can ask!
Erdo was an AMAZINGLY knowledgable tour guide. His excitement about Mayan civilization was palpable and I was totally invested in the history of the area. The tour itself is totally worth every penny. You get so much for you money, including a great lunch at a cafe in the rainforest and an opportunity to connect with people from all over there to enjoy the tour as much as you are. Do it!
Loved the tour and our guide. Instead of following the road he took us on trails through the jungle. His english was excellent! They picked us up promptly and made the trip fun and interesting. Lunch was great. Don't hesitate on this one. Super value!
