This experience was awesome! The tour guide really knew her history, she was very informative! The lunch was very good especially with me being a vegan. There is a lot of walking/hiking. We were hit by the rain but still enjoyed ourselves. The is a must activity!!

The guides were excellent. We felt safe and they were very friendly. There was a lot to explore at Tikal. We could have easily spent another hour there, but it was also very hot. Make sure to bring local currency to buy water. Drinks are only included at lunch! No water otherwise. They will make stops to buy snacks and beverages though.
