What to expect
Step back in time as you visit one of the most impressive ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization at Tikal National Park during this 10-hour day trip. Best of all, you’ll get to visit this one-of-a-kind wonder of the world via a flight from Antigua, saving time during your Guatemala adventure. Begin your trip with a 3:40am pickup from your hotel in Antigua, before proceeding to Guatemala City’s airport for your flight to the town of Flores in northern Guatemala. Upon your arrival in Flores, a pre-arranged vehicle will transfer you to Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal), where you’ll begin your exploration of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage site. Covering an area of 341 square miles (550 sq km), this fascinating Mayan city offers a wealth of structures for exploration. Check out a number of Tikal’s most important buildings with your guide, including the Central Acropolis, containing a labyrinth of interior temples and courtyards, as well as Complex Q and R, home to twin pyramids and intricate religious complexes at their base. You’ll also have time to admire the giant Temple I, also known as the Temple of the Grand Jaguar. This 144-foot (44m) religious structure was built to commemorate the burial of Mayan King Moon Double Comb. Finish your exploration with a stop at Temple II, which has been dubbed the Temple of the Masks. Take a break to sample a tasty lunch on the grounds of the national park before getting some time to wander the site at your leisure in the afternoon. Then proceed back to Flores airport to catch your flight back to Guatemala City and transfer back to your Antigua hotel.

Book this through Elizabeth Bell/Antigua Tours not Aviator
Mar. 2020
I am still disputing the charges on the booking made with Aviator. Don't use them. Find a different tour. Elizabeth Bell was better and equal in price.

Excellent experience
Feb. 2020
Everything was organized very well, including transfers from and to Antigua, flights, and actual Tikal adventure. Our guide was very intelligent and knowledgeable, and the site experience was outstanding. The ruins and pyramids are magnificent, definitely worth visiting. Lunch was very tasty, with a choice of meat, chicken or vegetarian meal. Strongly recommend this trip!

Better Than Expected, Albeit Exhausting
Dec. 2019
We were picked up at our hotel (in Antigua, 45km from the airport) at 3:25 am (the guy was actually early!) and got back to the hotel at about 8:30 pm, having walked over 6 miles at Tikal (including climbing numerous stairways including double-digit and triple-digit steps). So you "earn" your sightseeing! That said, it was well worth it. Both air trips on time (one in a 15-seater, one in a 30-seater); friendly and informed guides, with excellent English; the best Mayan ruins we have seen, with a combination of completely restored, partially restored, and not yet unearthed that showed both the glory that was and how the jungle had swallowed it for over 1000 years. If you have any interest in Mayan culture at all, this is a site you do not want to miss, and the hotel to hotel tour we took is a fine way to do it.

Perfect solution if you have little time.
I really wanted to visit Tikal but only had a couple of days, so this trip was the perfect solution. Yes, it is expensive but once you’re up there you’ll be glad you decided to do it. The guide was very friendly and a great photographer too. Lunch was pretty good too and there were a few options available.
A little advice: don’t buy the rain capes inside the park, the guide insisted that they were necessary but they weren’t. Also in the shop the guy that sells them said that if we didn’t use it, when we were leaving we could exchange it for something else, Do NOT believe him, he was gone by then, so we left with an unused cape, that luckily only costed 20 quetzals but still a little upsetting!

Fantastic Tour Guide, Awesome Nature, No Problems!
Jul. 2019 • Friends
Our day trip with Guatemalan Adventure was amazing! I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly everything ran.

We were picked up at our hotel in Antigua at 3:40 AM on the dot by a nice shuttle driver named Kevin. He drove us for about 45 minutes to the Guatemala City Airport, where we had a flight with TAG Air (I believe it's a Guatemalan airline) scheduled for 6:30 AM, departing to Flores. We picked up our tickets at the TAG counter with the voucher they sent us by e-mail. The flight to Flores was only about an hour long or less. When we arrived in Flores, we were greeted at the airport entrance by our tour guide, Senor Lopez, who was holding up a sign with my name on it. We just waited a few minutes for other people joining the tour, and then we were on our way to Tikal by shuttle.

Mr. Lopez was a fantastic tour guide. As soon as we started driving, he began enthusiastically talking about the history of Tikal and the wildlife in the area. He is a passionate bird watcher, so he described in great detail the different species we might see. He definitely knew his stuff, and you could tell he loved his job. There was no question of ours he couldn't answer in detail!

Getting around Tikal isn't easy. You will be walking a LOT. You will be exploring various temples and pyramids, as well as admiring the nature. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, different exotic birds, and many more species with names I don't remember. We were here in July and it was very hot and humid, about 90 degrees F. Definitely check the weather before you go, but if the weather is similar to this I would recommend wearing some good walking shoes (maybe even hiking shoes if possible), shorts, and a tanktop. There was a family with an 8-year-old child in our group, and she seemed to be having some trouble keeping up. Lunch isn't until 2 PM so plan accordingly and be sure to bring snacks. Drinks aren't included in the price, so you will have to purchase your own. However, there are plenty of opportunities to buy water, gatorade, etc. The lunch provided was excellent- we had a choice of chicken, steak, or pork chop. My pork chop came with a chimichurri sauce that was to die for. Or maybe I was so hungry that anything just tasted that much better.

After lunch, we went back in the shuttle which dropped off people at their hotels, or in our case back to the airport. When we returned to Guatemala City the same driver from the morning was waiting there patiently for us. I was amazed how perfectly everything worked out! We had no problems, and it was honestly the perfect tour. I would highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys nature and can walk relatively long distances!

Visit the Moon of Endor! (Lunch included)
Nov. 2018
It was amazing to see these ancient ruins in person, it was quite the sight! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had very good English, he was also an avid bird watcher and informed us about the wildlife as well as the Mayans, their ruins and archaeology. There were no problems whatsoever from our hotel to the airport and from the airport to the ruins, and neither did they skimp out on us with lunch, that was good as well. Most definitely worth the trip from Antigua if you are unable to extensively travel about Guatemala.

Very interesting trip.
everything is arranged so less hassles. Due to bad roads if you are even slightly prone to motion sickness, would recommend Dramamine/ zofran.
The walk through the tropical jungle is an adventure through the roots of the trees. The sites are a must to see and the guide is informative.

Tikal is a must in Guatemala
Aug. 2018 • Friends
Well organized trip, timing was as expected. Beautiful views from the pyramid's tops. I expected more scientific explanations and background from the areas we walked thought. We were able to see spider monkeys and toucans.
