Know More about this tour

Located in the heart of the Guatemalan jungle, the ruins of Tikal stand amid Tikal National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This ancient city is considered one of the largest and most monumental of all sites discovered in the Mayan world.

After airport or hotel pickup, you’ll be transferred to Tikal to begin your full-day tour of the archeological ruins. Follow your guide as you explore the 341-square-mile (550-square-km) park, which contains thousands of separate Mayan structures.

Visit the Central Acropolis—a maze of courtyards and small temples—and walk to the twin pyramids of Complex Q and R, where you'll find fascinating altars in front of the temples. Learn about the impressive Temple I, the Temple of the Grand Jaguar, built to honor and bury a Mayan king. View the 144-foot (44-meter) temple, which encompasses three rooms and contains a steep stairway leading to its peak. Marvel at the neighboring Temple II, the Temple of the Masks, which proves equally stunning.

Your guide will share knowledge about the Mayan civilization and the significance of each structure as you enjoy the natural surroundings. Keep an eye out for birds and other wildlife that inhabit the magnificent rainforest.

Next, eat a delicious lunch at Tikal National Park before having some free time to explore the ruins on your own. In the late afternoon you’ll be transferred to the airport or your hotel.

  • 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.

  • Our tour guide was excellent and explained everything very clearly. Kind of a large group so I stuck by him to make sure I didn and #39;t miss anything because Tikal is so fascinating.

  • 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 and #39;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 and #39;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!

  • WE loved the tour and tour guide Manuel. It was a wonderful experience. The food was OK, nothing to rave about. I just give this 4 stars, because we had so many more people with us. Some that had a hard time walking, others were sick and drove to the plaza, others wanted to climb every pyramid. Sort of unbalanced - the more people you have to accommodate the harder it gets. It was also super hot and humid, we were drenched. They also made a stop at this VERY expensive gift store with US prices. I would have rather spend my money and souvenirs at a local community.

  • Excellent tour. Pickup was on time and well organized. We had ample time to explore all parts of Tikal while learning very interesting facts about the history of the ancient city and seeing a variety of wild animals throughout the park. The lunch was very good as well at the end. I highly recommend going on this tour! Thanks again!

  • All was perfect, the only thing I disagree is to call the Tour Operator the day before to arrange pick up and time location, it would be easier to fill out the form directly when you make the reservation in Viator and all set. But the tour was awesome and the guide explained everything and lunch was ok.
