Step back in time as you visit one of the most impressive ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization at Tikal National Park during this 17-hour day trip. Best of all, you’ll get to visit this one-of-a-kind wonder of the world via a flight from Antigua, saving time during your Guatemala adventure.

Begin your trip with a 3:40am pickup from your hotel in Antigua, before proceeding to Guatemala City’s airport for your flight to the town of Flores in northern Guatemala. Upon your arrival in Flores, a pre-arranged vehicle will transfer you to Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal), where you’ll begin your exploration of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage site. Covering an area of 341 square miles (550 sq km), this fascinating Mayan city offers a wealth of structures for exploration.

Check out a number of Tikal’s most important buildings with your guide, including the Central Acropolis, containing a labyrinth of interior temples and courtyards, as well as Complex Q and R, home to twin pyramids and intricate religious complexes at their base. You’ll also have time to admire the giant Temple I, also known as the Temple of the Grand Jaguar. This 144-foot (44m) religious structure was built to commemorate the burial of Mayan King Moon Double Comb. Finish your exploration with a stop at Temple II, which has been dubbed the Temple of the Masks.

Take a break to sample a tasty lunch on the grounds of the national park before getting some time to wander the site at your leisure in the afternoon. Then proceed back to Flores airport to catch your flight back to Guatemala City and transfer back to your Antigua hotel.

Hello - I can not put in to words what a wonderful trip/adventure this was. First the van and Henry that picked us up at 3:30am was right on time very friendly! He was a safe driver. Ed who was our tour guide was professional, funny, friendly, knowledgeable, polite and patient. I really can not say enough about him. I would recommend this trip to any and everyone who ever visits here and if I ever come back to Guatemala I would definitely do it again!!

Amazing but short

Tikal was amazing, the lunch was delicious, and the souvenir stop worth it (didn't anticipate it, usually it's waste of time for me). Make sure to get some Mayan tea there! My only complaint is that it felt like we spent too little time in Tikal - first I waited for 50 minutes for the tour to start in Flores. Then the tour was over when the lunch was over - I waited 2 hours at the airport for my return flight regretting I didn't use that time to see more of Tikal.

Tikal Ruins Tour

Our guide was amazing! His name was Aquilino (hope I’m spelling it right.) He was so knowledgeable about all the ruins and the Mayan people. He shared with us details about the animals and the plants, about Mayan culture and society. His English was incredible and we had no problems understanding him. I highly recommend touring Tikal!

Our trip to Tikal was amazing. The shuttle service to and from the airport was on time and the drivers were very friendly. Our tour guide, Rony, went above and beyond explaining the amazing history of the Mayan empire while also explaining all about the local flora and fauna. It's certainly worth the cost and you get what you pay for. Highly recommend!

The trip of a lifetime

What a wonderful trip! Flores and Tikal were beautiful! Our guide, Aquilito Martinez, was an amazing source of information and history! Seeing the ruins and the animals was thrilling! We saw Coatimundi, a crocodile, a couple of spider monkeys and many species of birds. We even stopped to listen to Howler monkeys calling out in the jungle! The pace of our tour, the size of our group (4), the transportation to and from the airport were all perfect for us. Lunch provided was simple and wonderful! We will definitely come back to wonderful, beautiful Guatemala!

Temples and wildlife
Augustina_L

This is an amazing trip. Tikal is magical. Many of the temples and structures are buried in the jungle, emerging as mounds covered with trees and vegetation. Wild life is around every corner and if you are lucky enough to have a guide as wonderful as ours you will learn so much, with plenty of laughter thrown in. The views from the top of the temples is incredible, but don’t miss the complex dwelling structures in the grand plaza.

Best tour I’ve taken so far. Comfortable buses (not cramped as usual) and our guide was AMAZING! He actually participated on many archeological digs and was a valuable resource.

Booked a trip for March. Charged and then received tickets for wrong dates in January. Tickets were also in the 3 day non refundable period. Told to change would be 100$ per person to correct. Still disputing. Too bad because I still will go just have to choose another company.

Well Organized Trip

Our flight was delayed in the morning due to fog and we lost 2 hours in the morning waiting at the airport. But still our tour guide made sure that we made most of our tour and we covered all the important places within the park. It was well organized from my pickup in antigua to dropping me back. I was able to contact the Agent throughout the trip with whatsapp which made things easier with all flight delays and stuff.

What a fantastic day! Our guide, Erdozain (with support from Alan) was so knowledgable and so passionate about Tikal that it made our tour very special. It was so exciting to see spider and howler monkeys and all sorts of other flora and fauna. Definitely climb all of the temples! The small airplane to Tikal was also a fun experience in and of itself!

From start to finish this was one of the best tours I've participated. It was easy to book on-line. The driver was prompt and courteous. Our flights between Antigua and Tikal were completed without difficulty. The tour guide was knowledgeable, and personable. The lunch was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour without reservation.

This trip was a good fit for me because I had to squeeze Tikal into one day. However, there is so much to see and just no way to see it all in this short tour. I really wanted more time! If you are able to visit Tikal and spend the night in Flores, definitely do that. The guide was fine, he was very interested in the philosophy of the Mayans. He gave us a little bit of free time (about 20 minutes) to explore, which was not nearly enough, but my favorite part of the trip. As far as transportation, it was well arranged. Shuttle was nice. You will still need to get around the airport by yourself, but someone will be waiting for you when you land.

An absolutely amazing day!!!! This tour...

An absolutely amazing day!!!! This tour was the highlight of the trip for me. Yes, it is a long day, but you are able to do so much! The pickup and drop off driver was a good driver and pleasant to talk to. I was impressed that he was able to recognize me in the evening and waved me over which was a good thing as I was tired after the long day. The guide for the ruins was very informative and was able to adjust the schedule to give us the entire guided tour even though our flight was delayed. I felt we had the perfect amount of guided tour and free time to explore and take pictures. I would happily book again and recommend this tour to everyone!
