Know More about this tour

Enjoy a scenic flight from Guatemala City to the Mayan ruins of Tikal on this exciting day trip! Visit the incredible archeological site of Tikal, located in the Guatemalan jungle, and experience the history, culture, beauty and nature of Guatemala.

After pickup from your Guatemala City hotel in the morning, head to airport, hop on a small plane, and set off toward the town of Flores in northern Guatemala! When you arrive, you'll be driven to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal). With an area of more than 341 square miles (550 sq km), this national park is home to thousands of separate ruin structures scattered around, each full of intriguing history.

Follow your expert guide through these Mayan ruins and visit the Central Acropolis, a maze of courtyards and small temples, before continuing to Complex Q and R, where you'll see twin pyramid complexes with altars set in front of the temples. Visit the massive Temple I (also known as the Temple of the Grand Jaguar), built to honor and bury King Moon Double Comb. This 144-foot (44-meter) temple encloses three rooms with outside stairs leading to the top of the steep temple. Walk a short distance to the equally beautiful Temple II, the Temple of the Masks.

After your tour, enjoy a delicious lunch before taking some time on your town to explore the ruins at your leisure. Then, head back to the Flores airport to begin your transfer back to Guatemala City.

  • Just a compulsory tour for everyone who travels through Mesoamerica. The most memorable experience from the travel in six countries.

  • We had an excellent guide. He was very enthusiastic and answered all our queries. We had an amazing trip. Delicious food. Everything from flight to shuttles to guide to meal - well coordinated trip. Will recommend to everyone.

  • This is a great trip that hits all the important spots in Tikal. This a truly exceptional option for someone that does not have many days in Guatemala but wants to see Tikal.

  • A really good tour overall. The guide was passionate about his heritage and it showed in his readiness to discuss the Mayan civilization at Tikal. They should have provided bottles of water and the lunch could have been better.

  • A group of 10 of us traveled to Guatemala to visit friends living there temporarily. We considered Tikal a must see, even though we only had one day to squeeze it in. Several people in our group have bad knees and were worried about being able to keep up. When I met our guide, Benny, at the airport in Flores I told him about our concerns. He arranged for an open bed truck with bench seats to take us quite a bit of the distance and let us out to see the Temples and walk the rest of the way and then a return trip back on the truck. It made all the difference. Thunderstorms were predicted for the day of our trip and I was worried it would ruin our trip, but we only had a smattering of rain drops no big deal. Benny was a great guide. Lunch was good. We all enjoyed the trip very much.

  • We were picked up from the hotel promptly at about 4:45 am and brought to the airport. Note the airline you'll be flying because it is totally ticketless. You will take a small plane to Flores we flew TAC air. The shuttle was waiting for us when we landed. Flores is SO different from the airport in Guatemala City. It's not frantic, it's clean and it feels safe. The tour was great. Hiking through the jungle, we saw spider monkeys and heard the howler monkeys. Our guide pointed out different fauna and the area was beautiful. There were so many ruins and it was almost overwhelming. It is a very long day. Here are some things to keep in mind. It is very humid. The trails were VERY slippery. You will do a lot of walking I think it was over 5 miles of walking per fitbit and you will climb a LOT of steps although this is optional, but I highly recommend going to the top of the pyramids for a better view. The lunch was onsite at about 2:30pm, and it was very good. You should bring a little snack and a water, as you will be doing a lot of walking between the time you land and lunch. I am a 57 year old woman in reasonable shape and by the end of the day I was exhausted. It was SO worth it, but plan on a very long day. My only complaint was the flight back from Tikal. The gate agent insisted my ticket was issued by mistake and wouldn't let me on the plane until a later flight even though my ticket clearly indicated I was suppose to be on the earlier flight. The tour company made my travel companion wait in Guatemala City until my later flight arrived. This was an infuriating end to a very nice day. The airline didn't even attempt to listen when I insisted I was part of the tour that was on the plane...If you have 16 hours in Guatemala City, I would absolutely recommend this tour.

  • AMAZING tour of the ruins! The tour guide, Louis was AMAZING! We had a very on hands, very informational tour and learned ALOT about Maya. I would DEFINITELY go again!

  • This is a must-see trip. Wonderful experience exploring the Mayan ruins. The guide was terrific. Lunch was okay too. Make sure you bring bug spray, as prices are inflated at the location.
