If you want the most experience out of the shortest time, this is the perfect day trip. You are very well taken care of from the time you are picked up until you are delivered back to your hotel. Everyone is professional and friendly. Our Tikal guide, Elder, was personable and knowledgeable and obviously cared about Mayan history. He was eager to share his knowledge. If possible, read up on your Mayan history to get the most of your experience here. There is quite a bit of walking on some rough terrain so wear appropriate shoes. Also, if possible, be prepared with mosquito repellent and sun protection. At the first stop on the way to Tikal you will be shown a small cultural exhibit then have a bit of free time to shop. But beware, the prices are very steep, so choose wisely.
This tour was incredible and worth every penny! It and #39;s a long trip but made easier by the friendliness and timeliness of the drivers and plane staff. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Tikal itself was unreal and is a must see. It was great to see Flores too. Highly recommend!!
Trip was awesome!! Only glitch was the weather in Flores delayed departure by 30-40 minutes. the rain cleared out by the time we left in the shuttle. However, due to the delay, we were not able to spend any time in the museum/gift shop. Our guide was very informative and helpful, lunch was quite good, and the weather cleared up and was great the rest of the day with small shower here and there but nothing to dampen our excitement at visiting this amazing place!
A must for any trip, especially first trip, to Guate. Despite unforseen glitches, such as no light in the airport office, the guides and the drivers were punctual, absolutely attentive and very knowledgeable.
Thanks for coordinating such a great experience for us.
Well organized and great guide.

It's a must! Our guide, Manuel Banos, was very thorough and knowledgeable of the history and facts of the Mayan civilization. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Guatemala.
Our guide, Carlos, was very knowledgeable not only about the ruins, but the Mayan medicines growing in the surrounding jungle.
Excellent tour. We had a terrific guide and enjoyed a delicious lunch among the jungles of Tikal. Highly recommended.
Awesome trip. A must do.
If you are staying in Antigua don't even think of driving or ride a bus.
A friend of ours did this trip a felt very sorry of his option.
The roads are narrow and not much safe and it is, at list, a 7 to 10 hours journey (one direction).
A little confusion at Tikal arrival airport and some delay, but all in all, everything went easy and smooth.
The guide (Vinicius) was nice, hellpfull and provided all the information we wanted to know.
The lunch is good and you can choose your prefered meal between meat, pasta, chicken or vegetarian.
Tikal is a awesome place. We couldn't be more amazed.
This tour makes for a long day, but is so worth it. Our guide, Erdo, was super knowledgeable about Mayan history as well as the flora/fauna of the jungle. The day was well-paced, the group was a great size, and it was a great way to spend my birthday. Lunch was great too.
