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.

The landscape surrounding Tikal changes dramatically as the sun begins to set. This tours lets you see the beginnings of the evening creep in, as nocturnal animals begin their daily routines, between 6 and 8 pm. Best of all, the angle of the setting sun illuminates parts of the canopy that you can’t fully appreciate during full daylight.
