Small group tour where 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 still cool. We developed the sunrise tour because our guests deserve to see Tikal first thing in the morning to appreciate wildlife while it is more active as well as at the end of the day during sunset tour. The main attraction of this tour is the awakening of the jungle with the noise of birds and howler monkeys, the sunrise is seen only 20% of the time, as it is usually cloudy or foggy.
