Elmer was our guide for two days and we visited Tikal and Yaxha. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Guatemala, the Mayan culture, and the species of animals and plants we saw. Even though Elmer speaks English, we enjoyed practicing Spanish! If we return to Guatemala, we’ll use him again.

Our tour guide Elmer was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, professional, and friendly. We saw everything we wanted to see in the short amount of time we had and at our pace. He was great at taking group pictures. We never felt rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. 

Elmer not only loves his job, but he knows so much...from the moment he picked us up in the airport untill the end of the tour. He was always telling us some fun fact about Tikal and its surroundings. He was great!!! Thanks.
