Day 1:
Visit Tikal and Yaxha on this 2-day trip from Antigua! You'll be picked up bright and early from your Antigua hotel and taken to the Guatemala City airport to begin your overnight adventure. Hop on a small plane and set off toward the northern Guatemalan town of Flores. After landing, head straight to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal) to begin your tour!

Spread out over 341 square miles (550 sq km), Tikal National Park contains thousands of separate ruin structures. Visit the central area of the once great Mayan city with your expert guide and explore various parts of the park, including visit the Central Acropolis, which consists of a maze of courtyards, small rooms and temples. You'll also see Complex Q and R, featuring twin-pyramid complexes with altars set in front of the temples at both complexes.

Then, visit Temple I, the Temple of the Grand Jaguar. Built to honor and bury King Moon Double Comb, this 144-foot (44-meter) temple is a small enclosure of three rooms with exterior stairs leading to the top of the steep temple. Near here, visit the equally beautiful Temple II, also known as the Temple of the Masks.

After exploring Tikal, enjoy a delicious lunch at the ruin site before heading to your hotel, where you'll enjoy free time to discover the town on your own.

Day 2:
On your second day, enjoy complimentary breakfast at your hotel before heading southeast to the Mayan archeological site, Yaxha. While here, enjoy the scenic jungle landscape of this unique area overlooking the Yaxha and Sacnab lakes. As you follow your knowledgeable guide around Yaxha, learn about the history of this ceremonial Mayan site, which features more than 500 ancient structures. Spend time visiting various sections of the site, including pyramid temples, ball courts and elevated plazas. After touring the ruins, enjoy lunch before beginning your journey back to Antigua.

Our trip was awesome! The tour was outstanding. Logistics upon arrival and at every single venue were spot on so we had the confidence of being cared for along the way to and from Antigua, the airport, the parks, and the hotel. Erdo, our guide simply made the trip! He was patient, informed, flexible to our needs, explained the Mayan history and culture with knowledge and pride, spoke English well, and was additionally an expert on birds, animals, and trees. To say the least, we learned a lot from Erdo.
Our night at the hotel Camino Real was great. We sampled the buffet of Guatemalan tipicos dishes and enjoyed the balmy night air along with the sounds of the woodlands around us.
As a frequent visitor to Guatemala, amid all the concerns regarding safety, I must say we never once felt any concern. This is in large part due to the confidence we had in the tight logistics. Someone always knew right where we were, and the arrangements were always in place: To pay the park fee, at our lunch stops, at the hotel reception, the early morning pickups. It means a lot to the traveler who may have heard of the safety concerns to have this kind of coordination. We were able to spend 100% of our time "taking it all in". I would say that a person looking for the jungle experience, needs to understand this is not Manhattan! Come prepared to walk, climb, and enjoy in "Guatemalan Time"! Many thanks to Viator for a spectacular experience!

We had fun. The tour guide for Tikal was okay and it rained heavy most of the day (hence the rain forest), but the experience was adventurous. Plus the lunch after the tour was great! The tour guide for Yaxha was a lot kinder and funnier. Easy hike, with the chance to climb up the stairs of the actual temples, as opposed to Tikal having modern wooden stairs. A lot quieter and less tourist, so intimate guided tour. Great service by driver and guide all day long.
