You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the significance of altars, temples and stone statues as you wander the five sections of the city. Explore the Great Plaza, ball courts, stairways decorated with ancient hieroglyphics and the impressive Acropolis. Interested travelers can even journey underground to a network of shadowy tunnels. Your guide will offer insight into the surrounding monuments and structures and explain the towering stone statues that are carved in the likeness of former Mayan empires.Follow your guide up 63 hand-made steps decorated in Mayan texts ever discovered. Wander the on-site museum where excavated artifacts are displayed and venture below the surface to tunnels that exist below the Acropolis to learn about early stages of the Mayan Empire (at additional cost). Finally, visit Copan Ruins, a nearby town where you can purchase lunch before departing back to your Guatemala City hotel.

After visiting Tikal, it is hard to see other ruins because Tikal was so majestic!!! It was about 9 hours driving from Guatemala and it is not easy driving in Guatemala.

Do it alone, more time tiding in car than at market
Great tour. Such a long drive from Antigua that we had 10-12 at the market and could meet for lunch at the church.
