Traveler Comments

The guide was passionate, and gave us more then expected

- PATRICE B, FEB 2019

Local schedules were “rough estimates” and timing was not overly dependable. Tour and guides were expansive and knowledgeable. There was a bit of “captive audience” in the sense that the transportation and guides had clear favorites with local shops and restaurants.

Great park! I

Take this tour to see Tikal at one of the busiest times of day — early in the morning. You’ll leave for your tour before the sun comes up, and then watch the jungle wake up from the top of one of the site’s temples. Bring a flashlight so you can see the nocturnal animals when you first arrive in the jungle. This time of day comes with another advantage, as the site has fewer visitors at this time of day.
