The guide communicates efficiently with all guests. During the tour, the guide accompanies you to climb the monuments to explain the most important details while you are above the monuments. We take you to the best spots to take pictures at the right times, this is ideal for photographers.
Tikal will always seem to be only for us because we make the tour in a different way to be in the right place at the right time. Tikal at that time has few visitors and the temperature is getting cooler.
We developed the sunset tour because our guests deserve to see Tikal while wildlife is more active (the same as during sunrise), the sunset is seen 80% of times, but our customers always enjoy the sounds of daytime wildlife when it goes to sleep.
