“What an amazing trip, totally beyond our expectations. The tour was awesome and the views were beautiful. Our guide was fantastic, always supportive and encouraging everybody. He had an impressive knowledge about the Inca culture and the history. Food was delicious and all the team was very kind and professional. We highly recommend this tour and a big thanks to the crew.”

“The views are unbeatable. Although the "trail" is a bit rocky, and very steep. Get well-prepared for the trail.”

“This tour provides a good way to travel from Palenque onward to Tikal, visiting two fabulous Maya sites along the way. The travel in Mexico was first-rate, although the cabin in the Lancandon jungle was quite basic. Private bath, but no hot water. And the stay there was not a culturally interesting one. It was just a room for the night. Once across the border, transportation is by colectivo, and it's a bumpy and slow 5 hours to Flores. But still, if I had to choose again, I would definitely take this tour.”
