    What to Expect
    This extraordinary day trip from Guatemala City showcases the best of Mayan architecture, culture and tradition. Enjoy a scenic flight over lush countryside as you make your way to the jungles of Guatemala and the ancient ruins of Tikal. 

    Your friendly guide will collect you from your Guatemala City hotel  and transport you to the local airport where you’ll head out on a small plane bound for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of Tikal National Park. The 341-square mile (550 sq km) park is home to thousands of ancient structures and plenty of Mayan history.

    Your expert guide will take you through Tikal’s major highlights including the Central Acorpolis, maze of courtyards and dozens of small temples. You’ll see the impressive twin pyramid complexes and temples that were once used for Mayan rituals. You’ll enjoy a local lunch I the park with fellow travelers and have additional time to explore at your leisure before returning to the Flores airport and making your way back to Guatemala City.

    My day started very early - pickup time from my Guatemala hotel was at 4:30 am. After a short shuttle transport to the airport and a quick maneuver through security there was plenty of time until our plane left to Flores. The ride was around 30 minutes with a beverage and snack

    Very well organized tour from picking up at the hotel (hostel in my case) to dropping off at the end of the day. What made my experience great was the tour guide. I was impressed by the depth of his knowledge and he answered every question that I asked. Highly recommended.
