    This was a long day but a really fun day! We left from Antigua at 3:40 in the morning to head to the airport. Getting through traffic and security was a breeze for the short flight. Our guide was an expert at not only Titlan but Mayan history as well. He's been giving tours of Tikal for over 34 years and his father was part of the original excavation team with the university of Pennsylvania. Though it was very hot and steamy, we had some reprieve in the middle of the day with a light rain. Walking the grounds of Tikal can be done by most anyone, I will say, climbing the stairs for the various temples was a bit physically taxing so just be prepared for a good workout. All in all, it was an incredible day and I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Antigua.

    We had a group of 11 people. Adults down to a 7 year old. It was a great experience. From booking, our driver picking us up, the flight, the driver and guide, the tour, and lunch. Can not say enough about how well this went. The communication was very thorough and would absolutely do it again!!!!

    Everything runs so smoothly. Tour guide was great! A guy who loves what he does and has been doing it for decades. He described all the plant life and spotted animals out of nowhere! I got to see a group spider monkeys, howler monkeys, even 2 toucans! And the temples along with all the surrounding areas have a history that you won’t begin to understand without a guide. Don’t even question it. If you’re going to be in Antigua, go ahead and book this for one of your days. It’s a serious no-brainer. I was a solo traveler and never felt alone. Can’t recommend this enough.

    El Tour en Tikal muy bueno, los guias el tralado por tierra, muy buenos, el almurzo muy bueno, el problema es la perdida de tiempo por el traslado aereo desde La Aurora a Flores, la aerolia TAG es muy mala, no cumple horarios, desde las seis de la mañana para llegar a las once horas con un vuelo de menos de una hora de duracion lo mismo a la vuelta desde las 18:30 hs para llegar a La Aurora a las 23 hs

    Pick up was on time and professional. Guide was excellent and the tour was amazing! The return to hotel was professional and right as planned even though the flights were delayed returning. The morning trip to Tikal was delayed 2 hours and the return flight was delayed 2 hours. Those were the only bad things.
