Super cool trip from Guatemala City. You fly up to Flores early in the morning. About an hour drive up to the park. The trails are fairly easy to walk, but climbing the different temples could be challenging if you're not in some decent shape. You don't have to climb the temples if you don't want to. The Tikal ruins are absolutely amazing and are truly a sight to see. I highly recommend this tour. The guide for the day was Abel, he was fantastic, spoke perfect English and had so much knowledge to share. The lunch in the park after the tour was good as well. Be prepared to pay a few bucks for beverages at lunch as they're not included. Overall, was a great day and would have loved to spend more time at the ruins.

Amazing day trip from Guatemala city to Tikal. Our driver picked up us nice and early from our hotel to the airport. At Mundo Maya Airport our guides were waiting for us to start the tour. It was a day full of history, archaeology, a lot of walking and fun!! It rained for few hours in the afternoon but this place is still amazing under the rain. I highly recommend it. Sandra C.

We had a great day trip to Tikal. Our guide, Juan Sandoval, was fantastic! He made the day extremely enjoyable. He was knowledgeable and presented all of the information he shared in a fun and entertaining way. It is a long day since you have to get up at the crack of dawn, but well worth the investment. If you have more time, you could definitely spend more time, but if you only have one day, it's well worth doing. And if you are physically able, definitely climb to to the top of the temples that you are allowed to, especially Temple 5. The view from there is surreal!
