Visit one of the largest and most important Mayan sites in all of Central America. 

Once inside the park, let your imagination run free as you explore highlights among more than 3,000 structures that archaeologists have excavated so far. Learn about the daily life and religious practices of the ancient Maya while wandering through the maze of the Central Acropolis, and envision the excitement of an elite sporting match in the ball courts. Tikal boasts an array of magnificent ceremonial temples. Climb the steep staircase of the 144-foot (44-meter) Temple of the Grand Jaguar, built to honor a Mayan king. A set of twin pyramids with altars will greet you at complexes Q and R. Marvel at the Temple of the Masks, which was once adorned with intricate ceremonial mask carvings. Perhaps most impressive is the oft-photographed Temple IV, also known as the Double Head Serpent. The tallest structure in Tikal at 212 feet (64 meters), this pyramid rises majestically above the jungle canopy.

After a refreshing lunch break inside the park, satisfy your inner archaeologist during your free time to explore the ruins independently. Most other tour companies take you outside the park for lunch. We stay inside the park to allow more time to explore.

Make this special and magical day trip to the center of Tikal!

Tikal with Kids
We took our kids, 5 and 7, across the boarder from Belize to see Tikal. The crossing was super easy. Our guide, Omar, who was waiting at customs for us between the two countries, was amazing. He was so patient with us and took us on many "short cuts" away from the masses, which also probably also helped shorten the walking for us a bit. This was much appreciated in the 40 degree heat with two kiddos ... more tagging along. He answered all of our questions with ease, pointed out so many amazing birds and flora species and even found a small group of quite howler monkeys hanging out in the trees above us. It was nice that for a portion we were able to wander at our leisure and the lunch at the end of the walk around was absolutely delicious. I'm so happy we were able to make this trip happen for our family!

Good day
It was good tour with a great guide. Tour was split between self explore and with guide. A little confusion with across the border communication as in when arriving and leaving, but no major issue. The lunch inside the park was nice, though it is really at the parking lot not in the park proper - we thought we might get to eat and then wander more, but that was not the case.

Tikal from Border
We drove to the Belize/Guatemala border. Parking is plentiful at the parking lot and safe. It was easy to get thru Belize customs where met our driver Elder. Elder accompanied us thru the border and drove us to a stop/store to pick up our guide Daniella. They are both very knowledgeable and kind. Elder waited for us at Tikal while Daniella toured with us. Had a good lunch then Elder drove us back ... more to the border. Perfect tour for us and very reasonable compared to other companies. Would definitely go with them again.

Hands down the best experience!!!
My partner and I did this tour at the beginning of our trip and it ended up being our #1 thing we did! Everything ran smoothly. We got picked up from our resort out of town and dropped off at the airport. We had a quick flight over to the mainland where our next driver was waiting with a sign for us. He then drove us to a little shop where we could go to the bathroom and buy snacks while waiting for ... more our next driver. Our tour guide met us there and drove us to the actual start of the hike. This is the part where we leave everything behind besides ourselves and our helmets. The 45 minute hike to the entrance of the cave is beautiful and so fun. You go through the jungle (mostly just walking) but do a few river crossings and get completely soaked. Then you get to the cave entrance and just jump in the blue water and swim into the darkness. You stay in a group of 8 max. Our guide, Ben, was awesome! Super knowledgable but also kept things moving at a good pace so we weren't stuck waiting behind other groups. You are in the cave for a few hours, but it goes by fast because of how incredible everything is. You swim some parts, walk through different levels of water, climb up rocks, squeeze through narrow openings. It is not for anyone claustrophobic, afraid of the dark, or not in good shape. You have some areas you have to sort of contort your body to fit and still keep up with the group. I loved how thrilling and fast paced it was. You see so many cool ancient pottery and artifacts, and multiple skeletons from the Mayan's human sacrifices. I still can't believe the things I saw! You need to wear close toed shoes with socks, so we wore tennis shoes with socks and that was perfect. I wore biker shorts and a tank top which was a good choice since looser clothing would have been sticking to me and maybe uncomfortable. You are soaked for the hike back but it doesn't matter since the weather is so warm and sunny! I would highly recommend this to fit, and adventurous people!! I feel like it was more intense than advertised, so just want people to be aware. I loved every second and will totally do it again next time I'm back. Once in a. lifetime experience for sure!!! And the lunch they give you after was probably one of my favorite meals on the trip. Remember to pack dry clothes to change into once back at the entrance.

Good Trip but With Some Bumps
Overall, we really enjoyed our trip to Tikal. Crossing the border was easy and our guide in Guatemala was there to meet us. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of Tikal as well as being good at identifying the birds and wildlife we saw. There was a balanced amount of time with the guide and on our own at Tikal. It was an impressive site, and I’m so glad we decided to visit.All ... more in all we had a good trip, despite the bumps in our day. We had visited Xunantunich earlier in our stay in Belize (through a different company) and I’m very glad we did both, and that we did Xunantunich first. Tikal is much larger, but the experience at Xunantunich helped us understand what we were seeing at Tikal better.

TIKAL
The tour was very good, interesting and well paced. The lunch was excellent. My only complaint was that there was no transport waiting for us after returning to Belize. Our guide was in Guatemala and we didn't know what to do. After more that 20 minutes, transport arrived but by then we were exhausted and uncomfortable. I had a 7am pick up and got back at 6pm - an 11 hour day.

Great day at Tikal
This was a great tour. The Belize Ground Shuttle driver, Jerrod, was a joy on our early morning ride to the border. He got us through the Belizean side of the border. Omar met us on the Guatemalan side and answered several questions about the customs form. Omar and the driver, Ronny, were excellent throughout the day. Omar is very good at spotting birds in the tree canopy. We saw toucans, parrots, ... more and several red headed woodpeckers. A camera with a 500mm lens would have been wonderful but I don't want to carry it. Omar taught us a great deal about the temples and pyramids in Tikal. Climbing to the top of several is highly recommended. When we got back to Belize, Jerrod was waiting for us and quickly got us back to our accommodations.

Would have liked more time and more depth of info
There's a lot of great things I can add about the tour. The transportation was first class and the driver was very knowledgeable of the area and helpful with getting through the immigration process at the border. The food provided on-site is quite good with an adequate selection for most everyone. And of course, Tikal is an amazing site to visit and there's so much to talk about. I highly recommend ... more a visit. Our on-site guide was Nate. A nice guy with an interest in Maya mythology. But here's the rub, he sat in the shade while we independently explored the main plaza plus temple 4. I saw carvings and stucco reliefs on temple walls that I wanted to know more about, but Nate is sitting somewhere in the shade. He said all faces are Cha'ak, the rain god. Yet I saw some distinct differences that made me wonder if he was correct. For the late classic I can understand the preoccupation with Cha'ak due to the long-term drought. But one of the stucco reliefs was covered by a later wall, presumably prior to the drought. Ok, so I'm a Maya nerd which is likely an unusual guest for Nate to deal with. If you are a Maya nerd, Nate will probably come up short in your view as he did in mine.

One wild museum tour
If you're OK with an adventure that includes briefly swimming in clothes and shoes, squeezing through tight spaces, a few fruit bats, and stories of some pretty crazy sacrificial practices then this is your tour! Fernando, our guide was fantastic. He shared lots of really interesting information throughout the tour starting on the van ride in. The whole thing was just one amazing formation after another. ... more You'll be navigating through a stream for a large part of the in-the-cave portion until you get to the place that they performed the ceremonies. Once there you'll climb up a bolder onto a ledge, then a bit further up you'll leave your shoes behind (wear socks!) to see the remains, being extra cautious not to step outside the literal lines. There is nothing but a few marking between you and the pottery and remains for all but the crystal maiden. If the maiden is dry, she'll sparkle like in the internet pictures. We made the trip from Blu Zen in Caye Caulker which meant taking the 6:15 hotel boat to the south side of the split, then the 6:30 water taxi to Belize City, then a taxi down to the rendezvous point where Fernando and his driver pick you up in a van. You'll have to leave everything behind in the van before you begin the hike. You also must wear a shirt, no bikini top or sports bra only. And most importantly you'll need to take a ton of great mental pictures of the unbelievable experience along the way -- no cameras or cell phones.

Exceptional Tour
Omar was an exceptional tour guide. Not only did he know all about the history of the ruins and the paths in the park, he knew everyone there, including all of the plant species. He shared some Mayan and Guatemalan history on the drive and helped ensure a very smooth border crossing. This is well worth the price. We stayed at Cahal Pech resort and although it was in town there seems to be a festival ... more going on so music was blasting all night. I would not recommend staying here if anything is going on in town.

Cool trip - Tikal Tour
We (my 2 sons and me) had a great tour. There were 2 other guests from Canada (Hi Penny, Hi Marc) very nice team. Both drivers took us safely to Tikal. Omar was an awesome guide - I was having my long lens with me and Omar showed me 3 different birds incl. a Tucan - what a day! Tikal as such is also impressive and Omar told us quite a bit! Highly recommended!

The whole process was so easy and effortless thanks for Belizing.com. Maria was very responsive when I was asking questions regarding the tour and once it was booked, I immediately received a very detailed itinerary.

Omar was our tour guide and he was very informative and ... more went along with our pace. Tikal was a once in a lifetime experience and I would do it all over again.

Easy trip, great guide, brand new bus
Great trip, pick up at the hotel was appreciated, the bus from the border to Tikal was a brand new Toyota 12 seater with cold AC. The lunch was three courses and very good, our guide Noel was fantastic, for the price it was amazing. One thing to keep in mind is that they don’t provide water, but it wasn’t an issue. Bring 4L to Tikal minimum.

Tikal with TikalGo
We chose to see Tikal with TikalGo and what an excellent company they are! Our guide was Noel. We drove ourselves to the border, went through Belize immigration without a hitch (bring $20/person for everyone over the age of 12 for the exit fee if the tour doesn’t include it). Noel met us after that and showed us where to cross the Guatemala border. There was only our family of 3 and another person, ... more so it was almost a private tour. The van was clean and comfortable, the AC cold, and Noel told us many interesting tidbits about his country. He clearly loves Guatemala and was a wealth of knowledge. We stopped on the way for some coffee and a bathroom break. Tikal was exceptional, an amazing site that we were grateful to be able to witness. The tour was a combination, guided and personal time to climb certain Temples and look around. It was a hot and long day, but was worth it. We had a tasty lunch that was included (apart from the drinks), and on the way back even saw some howler and spider monkeys. We drove back and made it to our lodgings earlier than expected, since there were only 4 of us on the tour and everything went smoothly. We went through immigration quick and made it to our car that was safely left in the parking lot. Thank you Noel, the driver, and TikalGo for a memorable day!

Highly recommend choosing TikalGo and ask for Omar!!
Man, Omar was an absolute wealth of information and a pleasure to spend the day with. My family and I had an amazing trip to Tikal with Omar as our host. We had great conversations to, from, and during the guided tour. He truly loves his job and it shows which makes all the difference. He taught us so much about Mayan culture, Guatemalan culture, and the natural world surrounding us on our hike. Since ... more I brought my camera and showed an interest in local flora and fauna, he sought out birds and wildlife such as the keel billed toucan and white chested parrots while navigating the jungle trails. We learned so much and saw the main highlights during our day trip, such as temples 1,2,3, acropolis, necropolis, and pyramids. I’d love to go back in the future and spend several days there seeing everything else with Omar as our guide. We brought our sons (5 and 7) and it was a fair bit of walking and climbing but they did great. I tracked my distance using the Garmin phenix 6 which clocked us at 6.25 miles in total. The lunch at the restaurant was absolutely delicious as well. Highly recommend the beef, it may have been the most tender steak i’ve ever had. Everything was delicious.

Expectations exceeded!
This trip was excellent! We met in downtown San Ignacio and took the short trip to the border in a sprinter-van style vehicle. The border crossing was very easy, even with our young kids (ages 7 & 9). Our guide met us at the door in Guatemala and we rode to Tikal in another very comfortable van. Our guide was so knowledgeable and did a great job answering all of my son's questions. Lunch at the restaurant ... more in the park was delicious, although it came at the end of the tour so eat a big breakfast or bring some snacks for the kids along the way. This trip exceeded our expectations and was so smooth and fun!

Once-in-a-lifetime Tour!
We booked our tour from San Pedro with the flight and paid more as we preferred a 15 minute flight to an hour and 45 minute boat ride. Our driver was waiting for us at the Belize City Municipal Airport and he immediately whisked us off to head inland for our tour. He was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information on our way to Teakettle where we picked up another couple for our tour. The ... more tour was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I'm not fit at all but our ATM Cave Tour guide was wonderful and patient and guided me as to where to step and where to place my hands and feet and the direction to put my body as we went along the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable too and ensured that all 6 of us on the tour were safe as we navigated through the cave. The lunch and rum punch were good after our tour. However, not enough attention was paid to get us back to Belize City for our 4:30 Air Tropic flight back to San Pedro. When we arrived at the airport, our flight had already taken off minutes before we arrived. Thankfully, Air Tropic was able to book us on the next flight. If Tropic Air had not been able to book us on a later flight, I'm afraid we would have had to figure out how to get to the water taxi, pay an additional fee for it, and spend an hour and 45 minutes on a boat ride instead of taking the 15 minute flight. I would suggest that Belizing book later flights for customers flying from San Pedro to ensure they have plenty of time to arrive at the airport before their flight.

Yumee was amazing!
The entire day went smoothly and was such a lovely experience. We were able to learn so much and experience the Tikal park with someone who clearly knew her stuff. Yumee was the best tour guide we could have hoped for-I've been on many tours, but her knowledge and perspective of life in Mayan times and life in Guatemala today was incredible-the best yet. Thank you so much for answering all of our ... more wild/sometimes silly questions. The park and ruins themselves were fascinating as was the wildlife all around the park. Lunch was also delicious (there was a very yummy vegan option) and the drive/border crossing easy. All in all, excellent experience all around.

ATM, Must Do Tour
Found this tour last minute, and we were lucky enough they had space. First up, plane ride from San Pedro to Bze City. Omg got to be copilot on Tropic Air. Dream come true! Met by Jeremy for car ride into ATM. So sweet and a wealth of information. Next ATM guide, so patient with us 60+ first time rock climbers. So into his job pointing out all the artifacts and possible explanations. Also, so nimble ... more in the cave. Super friendly and easy to talk to. Great lunch and rum punch at end....much needed. Bonus was great travel mates...newlyweds and experienced climbers, both of whom were patient with us oldtimers. Sore in feet, shoulders and armpits today. We actually have muscles. Ride back to airport was perfect and Tropic Air put us on an earlier flight. We even got to stop at Cay Caulker...love to fly! Don't miss this valuable Belize experience!

TikalGo Tour
My husband and I really enjoyed the tour of Tikal. Christian met us at the Belize-Guatemala border and we were driven through the beautiful countryside of Guatemala to Tikal (just over an hour drive). Once at Tikal, two more joined us, and Christian shared the history and highlights of the sites as they related to the Mayan civilization. I appreciated that we had time to explore independently while ... more also having the benefit of a knowledgeable guide. I was surprised as the quality and experience of lunch--it was a genuine and delicious three-course sit-down meal!

Did they meet you on the Belize side of the border, help you get through over to Guatemala? I'm worried I have to get myself through the border.

Our driver on the Belize side dropped us off at the border and explained the process to us. We independently walked into the Belize immigration area, paid the fee, showed our passports and vaccine cards, and then walked across the border to the Guatemalan side, where we again showed our passports and vaccine cards. Masks were required in the Guatemalan immigration area at the time (early July 2022). ... more My husband and I were not accompanied by the tour guides during the actual border crossing process through Customs/Immigration. Christian from TikalGo then met us immediately after exiting the gated area. On the return, Christian accompanied us to the gate on the Guatemalan side, and explained what to expect for the return (showing passports/vaccines again). Our driver was then waiting for us on the Belize side.

Tikal Day Trip with TikalGo
What an amazing experience! Eduardo is an excellent guide! He is friendly, knowledgeable, and did not rush us through Tikal as some tours do. He allowed us to experience the ruins at our own pace. Not only does he know about the Mayan culture and the site but he was excellent at spotting birds and other animals. Our driver was also courteous and vigilant while avoiding the stray dogs in Guatemala. ... more 5 stars!

a Must do! best adventure
the ATM cave was amazing. a must do tour if youre in belize.swimming through the water in the cave seeing the amazing formations and ancient skeletons.the tour guide Raffy knew everything as he has a phd in archeology. one hiccup. we booked the tour months ago and everything was all set but when we got to the airport the flight wasn't paid for. so we tried contacting them seeing if they could fix ... more it. we weren't allowed to board because the flight wasn't paid for. so 2 mins before the flight after trying to contact them for a half hour someone got back to us, apologized and said the flight was paid for but it was too late.. they did reschedule us for the next day and gave us a free ride and pickup from the airport. other than that it was AMAZING

A Must Do - ATM Tour
Our ATM tour guide, Reynaud, has over 20 yrs of experience with this cave tour, and it was obvious. He was excellent. The hike was pleasant, river was freezing cold but just another part of the overall experience of this landscape. The cave system itself was incredible. We travelled from Galveston Texas- city dwellers. To walk in the Maya mountains and meander thru this cave where the Mayans once ... more walked and practiced rituals is priceless. To see the "crystal maiden" skeleton was priceless. This is a Must -Do for anyone travelling to Belize. The hike was not strenuous. The cave had some tight squeezes and there was climbing so you need to be a bit physically flexible. If needed, they will provide you with a life jacket because you will be in water at times during the cave tour. To me that just made the tour even better. The water is crystal clear and cold! You will do best with a pair of hiking shoes because some of the rocks are very slippery. You definitively need your socks because at one point you will be removing your shoes. Be sure to bring a towel to dry off and a new change of clothes.

Best Adventure in Belize
This was far and away the best adventure we had while in Belize! I would recommend this company for any inland excursion in Belize.Customer service was excellent. They were thorough is putting everything together for our group from pickup at our hotel and everything in between to get us deep into the jungle for this tour. Our guide for the ATM Cave was amazing. He was one of the original guides doing ... more ATM way before anyone really knew about the cave. He was full of knowledge about the Belize jungle and Mayan culture. The ATM Cave is breathtaking and a once in a lifetime adventure you can't miss. Don't think about it anymore. Book it now here on Belizing and thank me later!
