Staying in Flores to visit the archaeological sites of Petén and take tours like this one, I consider the best option since the transfer times and services available in Flores are very good and I am very satisfied with the fulfillment of what was promised in the contract. The tours were very interesting, Tikal seemed very enriching culturally for its constructions in very distant periods of the Mayan culture as can be seen with the "Great Central Plaza" and "Mundo Perdido" plaza, another important aspect in Tikal is its national park which makes the environment very pleasant, allowing you to enjoy nature. The distance and road conditions are good and on its way I had the opportunity to get to know the region around the Petén Itzá and observe how its inhabitants live. The facilities at the entrance like shops and restaurants are very clean and pleasant. The trails between the sites visited in the ruins impressed me with their cleanliness.

Cesar did a fantastic job. He wasn’t knowledgeable about the habitats surrounding the temple and had so much knowledge about the actual structures/ Village itself. He was born and raised in the area so you could tell he was proud to show us everything. 10/10 would recommend.

Everything was perfect. The weather wasn`t very hot, there were no mosquitos and not many visitors in Tikal. The guide gave much information and was very kind. Our group was only 11 people and the food at the restaurant was good.

THE group were Spanish and the guide didn’t speak much English so he swapped me into another group and I had a great day!

Amazing experience and our guide was so knowledgable and great sense of humour too!
