Absolute Highlight of our Guatemala Trip - We had an excellent experience on the Tikal Sunrise Tour with Tikal VIP Tours. The communication before the trip was informative and easy, with quick response times. We were picked up from and dropped back to our accomodation in Flores and the vehicle was spacious and immaculate. Our guide Luis was incredible - vast knowledge of the site and area, and a captivating story-telling style and humor which really added to the experience and sense of wonder. Highly recommend this company and in particular, the sunrise tour - hearing the dawn chorus of birds and howler monkeys is out of this world! You'll also beat the crowds and the heat - its very humbling to have that space to feel small amongst the jungle and architecture. A very special site <3

Must Do: Tikal Sunrise Tour! - The sunrise tour was perfect! I highly recommend it if you want to experience Tikal and the jungle coming to life in the morning. Mario was wonderful. Our children loved it and said it was well worth the 3:15 walk-up! The entire tour from start to finish was well organized, the breakfast was delicious, and it was a magical experience.

Spectacular sunrise visit to the jungle at the top of the Jaguar Temple. Incredible Guide, RECOMMENDED! - Excellent guide to the spectacular Tikal with our guide who, apart from knowing the place perfectly, added a theatrical touch that gave a lot of value to our tour. The jungle sunrise at the top of the Jaguar Temple is unique and memorable. Highly recommended!

TIKAL VIP TOURS! EXCELLENT - The visit to Tikal with Elmer was incredible, the precision in the prior communication to coordinate everything from airport transportation, flower recommendations, hotels and dining options. Already on the tour, I 100% recommend doing the sunrise tour, even if you have to wake up at 3am, it is completely worth it Transportation is very very comfortable, to Tikal And the guide is incredible, he accompanies with his feeling of tranquility and his infinite knowledge He has an entire show programmed to surprise and move all emotions and then with empathy he accompanies you to the end of the tour. In particular, we left a camera in the transport, and he took care of getting it to us to the capital, always with a smile. and the best will I wish there were more tour operators in the world like Tikal VIP Tours, they are very clear about what VIP treatment is. Bonus track: the guide is very clear about how to take the best photos to remember

Amazing experience! - Elmer was great! I booked the Yaxha sunset tour and the Tikal sunrise tour. I had an amazing time both days. Elmer is very knowledgeable, funny and friendly. He offered to take as many pictures as I wanted. The tours went at a good pace and I had enough time to enjoy both places. I highly recommend this tour agency!

Excellent tour! - The sunrise tour with Elmer was one if the highlights of our trip. We climbed the monuments to watch sunrise and hear the jungle wake up. Elmer was a great guide, explaining not just the ruins but also pointing out interesting facts in the jungle. An excellent tour!

sunrise tour of tikal - We were in belize/guatemala with our family (kids 18, 16 and 13) this past winter break and contacted Elmer to arrange for a tour in Tikal. Elmer was extremely helpful in assisting us in coordinating every detail of our trip. We met Elmer at 4am to do the sunrise tour at Tikal and he was amazing. He talked about the history of the ruins, the animals we saw and we were treated to hearing the jungle wake up. Would highly recommend contacting Elmer -very professional and knowledgeable!

Best Tour Ever. - This tour did not disappoint. It was raining all day and we didn’t see the sunrise which normally would have been a total bummer, however the tour was so incredible that the bad weather didn’t even matter. Our tour guide Mario was so knowledgeable on the history and archaeology and was able to answer all of my questions. In 2007 I did a group sunrise tour that was not informative and full of lame dad jokes, and I just wanted it to be over. My experience with Tikal VIP Tours couldn’t have been more enjoyable. I kept checking my phone hoping that we weren’t running out of time. If you’re looking for an educational tour in an intimate setting, early entry to the park before the crowds arrive, and the chance to climb Temple IV , I would highly recommend this tour. If you were my family, I’d make you go on this tour.

Shameful price gouging - Absurdly overpriced. You can get this for exactly 1/10th the price. Shame on viator and VIP tours DO NOT BOOK this tour unless you want to be robbed.
