      Great tour! TransportIon was dependable and tour guide Alex did an amazing job of combining the facts about the areas ( Tikal and Yaxha)with his own personal knowledge and stories. Hotel Villa Maya is nice but you are kind of trapped there as the closest restaurants and bars are 6km away. Tag airline was 2 hours behind on return trip!!! Meals included were the best we has on our entire trip to Guatemala.
      Tikal and Yaxha
      Rodney_F, Oct 2019
      Everything went according to plan. I'm glad I did Yaxha. Whereas Tikal is covered with tourists, I almost had Yaxha to myself. Guides were very knowledgeable and I learned alot about the civilization and architecture.

      Kriss B, Dec 2017
      The first day Yaxha was really disappointing. Even though I had booked for an English-speaking tour, I was in a group with 3 Spanish-speakers and myself. Obviously, the guide spent much more time explaining things in Spanish, and often forgot to repeat the information in English. Yaxha itself was amazing! If you have the time, you should definitely visit this site and, best to go before Tikal, if possible. We had the whole site almost entirely to ourselves! The hotel was average, but the bird life waking up on Sunday morning was spectacular. I had a toucan right outside my bedroom window! Tikal was excellent! We had a great group, and a very knowledgable guide. Although it rained and poured! intermittently throughout the day, our little group accepted the situation with good humor, and ended up having a wonderful day. Take rain gear, especially in November raincoat, not an umbrella -- you'll want your hands free to climb!. Wear waterproof shoes if you have them. Tikal is a lot of walking, but there is something fantastic to see around every corner.... Climb every pyramid and temple that you can!

      This trip was amazing. We were in Guatemala for 12 days and this was probably the highlight of the trip. The guide was great and seemed to really be enthusiastic about what he did. He was very knowledgeable about bird species, plants, animals, and the history of the sites. All of the tour buses were very clean, the food was excellent, the flight was great on a regional carrier. The hotel we stayed at was unbelievable! It was located on the shore of a large lake in the jungle and seemed like the type of place James Bond would stay. There were howler monkeys, birds, etc. right near the premises so you really felt like you were on an adventure. The ruins themselves are worth a trip to Guatemala alone. Tikal was great, but we really liked Yaxha as there were only a few other tourists there and it felt very, very adventurous. The views were the best there as well.

      The guide, the food, and all the people was great, I am from Guatemala and is my 4th time to Tikal but I learned so much from Alex and Marlon our guides, They accommodate my husband to see the magnificent temples since he fell at the airport and couldn't walk that well. Great Job, I will give 10 stars but you only have 5. I will recommend viator and this trip 100, THANK YOU GUYS

      JAM, Nov 2015
      Excellent trip, you get picked up at your hotel, move to the airport, at landing they are waiting for you to take you to Yaxha or Tikal, good lunches, the tour guys are kind and they know a lot about mayan civilization. They take you to your hotel on Peten in the afternoon with enough time for a drink, pool, beach walk or whatever other activity you want to do yourself. DINNER IS NOT INCLUDED, I thought it was, i was surprised it was not, i guess i read wrong. The order of the places you visit can change and the will tell you al pick up time, we booked Tikal first but we went Yaxha first, not big deal. You return to Guatemala City around 7:30pm. Tour guys physical and by phone are very open and always willing to help and answer questions. We had a lot of fun, highly recommended!

      All the pickups went without delay. The guide was knowledgeable and a terrific guy. Well worth the money.
