Maximum Adventure Tours for Tikal Overnight

We are going to book tours for ATM and Tikal Overnight while we are in San Ignacio in July. A lot of people recommend Pacz tours but they are significantly more expensive than Maximum Adventure Tours. For example, Max charges $300 pp for Tikal overnight, and Pacz charges $450 pp. I am wondering if there is a difference in the level of service or quality of guides or vehicles. It seems that they include basically the same things in their tours unless I am missing something.

I have been corresponding back and forth with Maximum Adventure Tours, and they have been very responsive and helpful.

Any feedback from someone who has recently gone on this tour with Maximum Adventure Tours would be appreciated.

Both are group tours - why not consider a private tour for the same or less pricing? Overnighting at Tikal is fairly simple and a sunrise ontop of the temple is spectacular!

FYI - Just priced it out as this is what we are doing and you can prob save a decent amount doing it yourself.

We're a family of three and we did the following:

- Round Transportation from Belize to Tikal back to Belize

- One Night Tikal Inn

- Sunset + Sunrise Tours

- Dinner + Breakfast

- Tikal Entrance Fee's

Total - $760 or $253 PP

If you prefer the tour group, hopefully someone else can give you recommendations.

Richard, that is a significant saving. Can you share some details with us, especially your transportation, Belize-Tikal-Belize and the Sunset and Sunrise tours? Thanks.

Sure.....

We're staying at Caves Branch and going to Tikal Inn. We had planned on going back to Belize airport, but ended up flying out of Guatemal instead. We had quotes for pick-up at Caves Branch to Tikal Inn ($215) and Pick-Up from Tikal Inn to Belize Airpot ($250) through Maya Heart Tours. We'll see how they do, but so far they have responded to e-mail quickly and offered best price we could find.

Tikal Inn is charging us $260 for Triple Room Bungalow, Sunset Tour, Sunrise Tour and Dinner / Breakfast Package. We found out they work with Maya Heart Tours but will charge extra $50 for going through the hotel so we booked directly.

Not sure if all this is a great deal, but we did a lot of research and found it to be the best combo for everything we wanted for the money.

Kim, if you are aware of a good private overnight tour on July 14/15 to Tikal from San Ignacio for around $300 pp or less, inclusive of transportation, sunset and sunrise guided tours, lodging at the Tikal Inn and food, we would certainly be interested. Basically, we are looking for door-to-door service from and back to the San Ignacio Resort Hotel so that we don’t have to worry about anything.

Richard, thank you for sharing your research findings. I will look into Maya Heart.

Dr., thanks for the thumbs up on Max. They have been very professional and responsive to my emails. The difference in price between them and Pacz is quite significant...
