          Awesome experience
          Oliver was an excellent guide with very good English and outstanding knowledge of the Mayan history and local flora and fauna. Transport in modern SUV with very safe driver Antonio. We had an amazing tour and would highly recommend.

          Helicopter Tour one of my best experiences with the best
          The helicopter tour that they offer is one of the best experiences. I contacted them and they kindly assisted me, answering all my concerns. The very friendly driver arrived for us. We arrived at the exit ramp where they gave us instructions on what to do and what not to do in that place. Flying over the Mayan biosphere, seeing other Mayan cities from the air becomes an incredible experience, even more so when you arrive and begin the walk in the middle of the jungle. Of course, always follow the trails and do not deviate from them. Our guide Ronal, a very friendly boy even though his English is not very dominant, made our tour the coolest. When I return to Guatemala I would not hesitate to return to that place with them "La Danta" 100% recommended

          Don’t trust this company!!! Bad customer support and lie
          We booked a helicopter ride to La Danta with a Tikal expedition company, and they provided a tour with an English speaking guide. Very polite and nice guy name Antonio assured us that there would be definitely professional knowledgeable English speaking guide with us! Next day the driver with a guide name Oliver came to us for a pick up and I noticed they dressed too nicely on a white close for this ~4 hours jungle dirty hike to the La Danta, but I can’t imagine that the guide wouldn’t go with us . So, they dropped us near airport and said that guide would wait us in El Mirador(La Danta), but there was no English speaking guide when we arrived! The guide speaks Only Spanish! The guide was only spending time with the a Guatemalan family. The family were better tour guides then the real tour guides. Then something crazy happened, my husband was bitten by a lot of poison fire ants and he had an allergic reaction, so we hurry up go back to the Flores. We thought that helicopter company policy need to have a first aid kit in a case, but they doesn’t have any medication. When we arrived back to the Helicopter landing pad our guide Oliver and driver Antonio waited for us, we asked them what’s happened with our English Speaking Guide, why did they lie to us about it? They said : Ohh, the helicopter was full and there was no seat to fly with you guys. I can tell you a history on our way back That they planed this ride and they didn’t know that there would be no space for a guide. Whaaat? Is this our problem, That there were no seat for a guide? He want to tell us all about El Mirador in a 10min ??? By the way I talked to them on the phone day before about an English speaking guide, that my Husband has a Birthday and he loves to learn a history of El Mirador La Danta in general etc.. The helicopter ride price 550$ per person, included lunch and bilingual Guide, with a 7 person seats helicopter. El Mirador amazing !!! Must to see, but with your Guide to understand a history! With a Tikal Expedition we have a bad experience. Advice: Better to book a flight throw a Tag Airlines heliocopter company direct ! Definitely they are more Responsable, Honest and less price

          Amazing Guatemalan experience
          I highly recommend Tikal Expeditions. We did both the Blue Crater and the Tikal tour with them. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable, and spoke English quite well.

          Fantastic tour and guides!
          An excellent tour! My son and I stayed in Tikal at the Jungle Lodge. Tikal Expedition picked us up directly from there with a driver and tour guide. They drove us from there to the river while explaining various aspects of the area. When we arrived at the river, the driver stayed with the vehicle and the guide accompanied us on the river ride. Snorkeling at the Blue Crater was super fun and amazing. Highly recommend this excellent company!

          Yaxha was incredible even in the rain
          Yaxha was incredible even in the rain. It was way less touristy than Tikal. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable.

          Excellent Private Tour of Tikal
          I took a private tour of Tikal with Oliver. It was a fantastic experience! From to pick up to drop off, they took care of everything. We saw a large variety of flora and fauna and visited the historic and impressive ancient Mayan ruins. Oliver provided expert knowledge on Mayan history and also identified many jungle animals and birds. Highly recommend!

          Our Tikal Adventure
          We stayed in the Jungle Lodge for our visit to Tikal National Park. We debated as to taking the sunrise or sunset tours. With the heat decided to do the sunrise. So I want to say first off, it is amazing walking in the dark, listening to the animals and making your way to Temple IV. It was cooler but I really didn't need to wear pants and it warms up quickly. We hired a guide thru the Jungle Lodge and started walking at 4am. Now my disclaimer, I am in my 60's and perhaps it was just this guide but most of the walk in to the park is uphill and let me tell you he was fast. about half way I decided to quit keeping up as I am not sure what the hurry was. Talking with other group members later, comments were also made as the the fast pace. We had plenty of time to get to the temple, so I am at a loss as to why we were practically running. whatever, guide was just ok. Once you walk up the many steps to the temple you sit in silence waiting for the sun to come up and the birds to wake up. it is a beautiful experience even if the mists do blow in and you do not see Temples 1 & II. So here is my take; save yourself the extra park ticket and guide cost. Wait until after the 6am opening and walk to the Temple on your own. By 8am it was empty of people and the mists had burned off. I got the shot I wanted and it was simply breathtaking. Alos, if you do the tour, get out whatever you need before sitting down, it is deathly quiet. This of course is all my opinion and subjective.

          Wow! What an incredible experience. Tikal Expedition was phenomenal, from the initial inquiry about their services to the tour itself. Antonio (Nio) and I chatted via Whatsapp about their services, he gave me prices and expectations and was always pleasant and cordial. We agreed on the meet up spot at the I Love Peten sign in Flores (because Flores was closed down due to the Feria Departamental de Peten (Peten State Fair). He and our tour guide Mr. Oliver patiently waited for us at the sign. We were picked up in a clean and safe vehicle. Mr. Oliver is well knowledgeable and versed in Guatemalan sights, flora and fauna, and of course, Mayan history. We arrived to Tikal, ate some lunch at one of the restaurants. We climbed the incredible pyramids and temples and learned about the various plants and animals that live there. Mr. Oliver ushered us to our sunset spot right on time! Be sure to take this moment in in silence, as one of the other tour guides asked kindly of all the patrons. This was an incredibly unforgettable experience and the Tikal Expedition team made it happen! We were safely taken back to Flores. Can't wait to come back with Tikal Expedition for the Mirador Tour! 100% will book again!

          A beautiful experience
          The sunset tour was fantastic and the two guides are exceptionally friendly! We learned a lot about the Maya and the temples and pyramids and enjoyed every moment of the tour. Absolutely recommended!

          Terrible
          I would NOT recommend this tour- although the one I did did not have lunch included it was still 400Q. It is an expensive tour to a dirty spot full of garbage that clearly the locals do not care to preserve and are only trying to cash in on tourism. The boat ride was the best part (fun). The photos oversell the swimming spot it is NOT as beautiful as the pics. SUPER disappointed. Also…I was not told there would be zero English speaking people there so I didn’t understand ANYTHING the ‘guide’/photographer was saying about the area- missed that whole experience. Would have skipped this for sure if I had been told.

        We booked the La Danta Helicopter tour, the largest Pyramid in the Mayan World by its volume.

        We were a little undecided since due to our time in Flores and we spoke with Antonio for this tour and he very kindly assisted us.
        We were amazed by this place in the middle of the jungle, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. Without a doubt highly recommended
