An absolutely amazing day!!!! This tour was the highlight of the trip for me. Yes, it is a long day, but you are able to do so much! The pickup and drop off driver was a good driver and pleasant to talk to. I was impressed that he was able to recognize me in the evening and waved me over which was a good thing as I was tired after the long day. The guide for the ruins was very informative and was able to adjust the schedule to give us the entire guided tour even though our flight was delayed. I felt we had the perfect amount of guided tour and free time to explore and take pictures. I would happily book again and recommend this tour to everyone!
My review is based on the expertise of the wonderful guide we had. Carlos was extremely knowledgeable regarding the Maya structures and their history, which was expected, but he also possessed a deep familiarity with the plants and wildlife of the site. He was able to call birds, monkeys and other animals so that we could get a better look at them and to identify and discuss interesting features of the flora. The trip was unexpectedly special for his comprehensive understanding of Tikal in its environmental context and his ability to convey his love for it.
Would highly recommend this one day tour to young healthy people. Older people and children would find this tour very difficult. We were picked up on time. We didn't have any problems with the flights, however I'd warn you to be at the gate before the boarding time. The guides were knowledgeable.
Tikal was a fantastic experience. Even though only a small amount has been uncovered of all the pyramids and buildings in the area it is outstanding. I also loved that nature surrounds the pyramids most of which are fully uncovered by foliage and some of the buildings are partially covered by the foliage as you can see how it lay undiscovered for so long. I was picked up promptly by my driver from Antigua and driven to the short flight that takes you there. I was with another couple and we were met by a great guide I am embarrassed that I don't remember his name because he was fantastic. We spent the whole day with him and he was very knowlegable and patient. In addition to all the pyramids and buildings he explained and pointed out all the wildlife surrounding the area, which was abundant. We were then driven directly back for a short flight back and my driver met me promptly again to take me back to Antigua. I highly recommend this tour and seeing Tikal with an experienced guide.
I was picked up from my hostel in Antigua right on time. My driver did not speak English but dropped me off and communicated to me that I need to check in at TAG airlines.
I got to the airport a couple hours early for the flight but that was okay. In Flores a man was waiting for me with my name on a sign. he took my passport to buy my ticket for Tikal and returned it to me.
I was loaded into a tour bus with 3 other people and was told I would have my own guide for the tour in English and the other group would have a Spanish speaking tour guide. It was a bit confusing but I think that we were just sharing transportation and that it was with 2 completely different tour groups because when we got there we did not stay together.
My tour guide was one of the best tour guides I have ever had. His name was Erdozain and he knew everything there was to know about this place and was incredible about spotting wildlife. He had binoculars and let me peek through them to get a peek at the birds we saw an orange crested falcon which apparently can only be seen in 2 places in the world., along with oscellated turkeys, pizote, woodpeckers, and spider monkeys. His English was fantastic and he knew the history of the whole place inside and out.
He made the trip very special by not letting look ahead of time at the temples until we got to just the right spot, then BOOM, you would just be awestruck by how massive the place was. I appreciated that very much.
You could tell he was very passionate about this place and that he loved sharing it with people.
After the tour we drove back to Flores, the other group of people were tired of walking so we just drove around Flores to see the town and we were dropped back at the airport.
I loved this adventure and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see this beautiful place and is interested in history.
