It was a great experience. I was nervous before the trip wondering if anyone would really show up to get us, but everything went exactly as planned. The tour guide and driver were very helpful. We had a great time and the lunch was very good as well. Be prepared to not eat until about 2pm though. So you might want to bring water and snacks.
I give this trip a 5 star rating. It met and exceeded all expectations. Very proud of you guys handling trip from start to finish. Commend everyone's involvement with this tour from start to finish. Booking process, drivers, airline personnel, guides, etc. This is the way to run a professional business! I speak for a total of six travelers.

We had a wonderful day seeing the great temples. We hiked about three hours, and had a wonderful lunch.
This was an excellent all day tour from Guatemala City. Be prepared for a long day! Collected from hotel at around 5am, then a 7am flight of around 45 minutes in a tiny plane to Flores. Meal box on the plane was an unexpected bonus, even if nothing special. Then taken by mini bus to Tikal - about an hour and a quarter drive, plus a 20 minute stop at a shop with souvenirs and provisions. No pressure to buy anything. Tikal itself very impressive. Lots of different buildings in various states of repair, but managed to walk up about six of them which offered a different perspective and some great views across the jungle. The guided walk around the site was quite relaxed, and lasted about 5 hours 9.30am to 2.20pm with a very knowledgeable guide. As someone who hates being rushed and not seeing most of the site this was really good - although some on the tour seemed to want their lunch earlier. Lunch was provided on the way out of the site - not the greatest of meals, but did provide some much needed food and drink, and there was a reasonable choice of dishes. On the way back we also had time to stop for half an hour in Flores itself, by the lake, which was pleasant.
Highly recommended if you have a full day to spare in Guatemala.
The your guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Unbelievable place, great tour guide, very worth it all around.

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.
Must go in Guatemala
