This is difficult to assess this activity, as it is more about the tour operator, than the attraction. However I will break this assessment into two ratings.
PACZ Tours Review
The guys at PACZ Tours were easy to deal with via email before I arrived in Western Belize. The responded the next day, and I decided to book the Tikal tour with them. They stated the total cost of $145 US ($290 BZ) and no hidden charges. The tour went as expected with a shuttle pickup at my hotel and then off to the Guatemala border. Everyone gets out of the shuttle and walk through to be processed at the border. You must give your passport to the PACZ tour guide, in this case it was Juice. Juice takes care of everything for you, including the obtaining the entry stamp into Guatemala. Juice was very good at explaining what to do, and when to do it, you can tell he knows his stuff quite as you will experience for yourself when you get to Tikal. Going through the border was probably the slowest part of the trip. Note that you will switch shuttles once you cross the border and proceed through a decontamination spray. This is important, ensure your windows are closed and the A/C and fan are turned off not to pull in vapours/fumes from the decontamination spray into the cabin of the vehicle. After this part, it is a matter of sitting back and enjoy the ride... everything else you will experience (all positive) is best left for you to experience for yourself when you get there. I wouldn't recommend gringos to do Tikal on your own, be safe and travel with a tour operator.
PACZ Tours Rating: Very Good
Tikal Guatemala Review
Tikal is a must do for any traveler. I read many reviews and travel guides, and Tikal is ranked at the top for being the most magnificent of the Mayan ruins. To do a day trip in Guatemala and see the culture, landscape, nature, and a strong military presence was an experience I will never forget. Tikal itself was incredible, and I highly recommend everyone to experience this Mayan ruin site.
Tikal Guatemala Rating: Excellent
