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.

Perfect sunrise tour of Tikal - Absolutely fantastic tour with Elmer. We went for the sunrise hike and it was spectacular, despite the rain in the earliest morning we had such a magical time! HIGHLY recommend! (Note: We were staying at the lodge right in the National Park, which was perfect)

Outstanding sunrise trip to Tikal - We loved the sunrise tour of Tikal. The trip was very well organized. The guide, Elmer, was outstanding: knowledgeable, sensitive to guests’ (including kids’) needs and interests, and a good planner. We saw all the authorized parts of Tikal. Going in the morning was key. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, toucans, parrots, and many other animals. I highly recommend the trip.

Sunrise tour with Carlos is a must do - We had an absolutely incredible experience with Carlos at Tikal VIP tours. We were hesitant about waking up so early, but the sunrise tour with Carlos was a once in a lifetime must do experience. He knew what every animal was, knew the call on a lot of them, and he had pictures of every animal on his phone ready to go. He was funny and extremely knowledgeable. Carlos also knew the best picture spots, how to beat the crowds, and made our day one of the most memorable experiences yet

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.
