Tikal It is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now northern Guatemala. At your arrival to the park we will meet with our local guide and expert in the área to start the walking through the jungle to admire the many species of local flora and fauna. Here, discover the impressive splendor of Tikal, which means “place of voices”. The park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979, spans 576km squared. Continue to The Major Plaza of the Archaeological Park of Tikal, surrounded by impressive buildings such as Temples I and II, called the North and Central Acropolis. Also, there is a range of wakes and altars that play a part of the dynamic history of the Mayan Civilization in Tikal. The Temple of the Grand Jaguar (Temple I) and the Temple of the Masks (Temple II) loom like a pair of colossal bookends on opposite sides of the Great Plaza, a vast expanse ringed by terraces, palaces and ball courts. Temple I rise some 50 meters above the plaza's eastern end. A stone stairway leads up the pyramid's nine tiers, corresponding to the nine levels of the Mayan underworld. The central part of the ancient city alone contains 3,000 buildings and covers about 16 square kilometers. Tikal is also part of the one-million-hectare Maya Biosphere Reserve created in 1990 to protect the dense forests of the Petén. At the end of our adventure through the jungle we will have time for lunch (Included).

Tikal Tour

We were planning to go to Tikal on our own but after reading reviews, decided to hire a guide. We are so happy we decided to. Our guide Eddie really made our visit enjoyable. He is so knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. We learned so much that enhanced the experience. Eddie was patient and encouraged questions. The bus was clean, comfortable, and air conditioned and our driver Jason handled the roads with ease. This was the highlight of our Guatemala trip and we will definitely book with Grey Line again.

The tour was very good. We were picked up on time and given ample time to roam about on our own. The tour guide Eddy was very knowledgeable and was very clear when communicating with the group. The only problem was that in trying to get in contact with the tour company via their website and email address they were unresponsive and I had to call to confirm pick up place and time.

Our tour was definitely one of he best that I have been on during my travels and use of guided tours. The transit was comfortable both in the vehicle outfitting and in the driver's care for the road. With that beautiful setting to watch as we drove it was quite an almost therapeutic drive. The monuments and what was been uncovered of the ancient city is breathtaking. The works of the Mayan people leave me inspired and filled with reverence. Guatemala has done a fabulous job of restoration. Finally, our tour guide, Wilson, was absolutely the best ever. He were the only English speakers in a Spanish speaking tour group. He graciously performed bilingual narrative throughout. During the tour he gave us lots of time to walk and enjoy the setting. No rushing from here to there. And he has a passion and a deep knowledge about what he shared with us. He was informative, charming, and quite enjoyable to listen to. I have been on a dozen or so guided day trips in different parts of the world and Wilson was so far the best I have experienced. Great guide. Great tour.

Tikal was a year ago. It was my second time there. This time I took my adult son. The tour was quite interesting as I remember. It did not cover several structures I covered the first time, but we were on an OAT tour with our own guides. This tour covered a good bit....probably enough fir most people.
