Unique experience with wonderful guide - This tour was a great option to explore the indescribable ruins of Tikal. The transport was in a minivan and the actual group size was very small which was amazing. Our guide, Hector, was filled with knowledge and so happy to share it all, from flora to fauna of the area, he provided so much insight and was friendly, it made a whole difference to have a tour guide that actually enjoyed the trip as well. We were guided through trails so as not to get overexposed to the violent sun of the jungle and got to explore quite a lot of the ruins. Transportation was comfortable and everything went smoothly, cero complaints at all. The tour indicates you need moderate fitness and this is not an overestimate in any way; the tour is roughly 9.5 km and 30 floors climbed plus the intense heat of Flores so do keep that in mind. Thanks to Hector for making this an even better experience!
