This excursion offers you the opportunity to climb the massive temples and pyramids deep in the jungle of Tikal, visit the historical site of Castillo San Felipe, view the impressive lake vistas of Flores, swim in the Hot Springs and natural pools of 7 Altars, and last but not least, experience the Garifuna culture and delicious cuisine in Livingston…all in three days and two nights!

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

“Carlos is a professional guide who knows Guatemala like coffee knows beans. The driver (Walter) was also excellent. We didn't experience that "Ahhhh!..are we going to survive this?¨ feeling even one time with over 20 hours of driving; a common, scary experience with most tour companies. The stops in Rio Dulce, Livingston, the Spanish Fortress and Flores along with an excellent boat-tour to restaurants, hot springs and natural pools made the trip outstanding. Tikal itself is majestic and seeing it is the only real way to understand just how so. Our safety and comfort were clearly the top priority of M20895 - I highly recommend them.” -Tom

 1  Michelle Laforest “Safe, affordable and fun. Perfect way to travel” 2011-11-02
I went to Antigua for a month this summer to volunteer and while I was there I did quite a bit of travelling through M20895. I went on a amazing trip to Tikal ... view more where I got to see the ruins and a lot more! It was a long journey to do the whole trip(9 hours there and back) but it was all worth it for all the places I got to visit along the way. I also did the pacaya volcano trip where I got to see Guatemala for its amazing beauty. It was very affordable with a fully guided tour. But the most memorable trip I took through M20895 was definitly the El Salvador trip. Carlos(owner of the company) safelly brought us accross the border, to take us to a melo oasis where the groupe got to stay for a 2 night sleep and just for 20 or $ got to take two surf lessons from an amazing El Salvadorian surf instructor. Our stay was located in a safe beachy area in which we stayed with with locals so we got to experience El Salvador and its culture. Truely an amazing trip:) All of this is thanks to Carlos!! Thanks Carlos!! For all the life changing experiences, amazing memories and unforgettable friends that you have provided during all of the these trips. Good times.

I went on a trip to Tekal during my stay in Antigua. Carlos and team put together an amazing trip for us. It was great service all the way. If you want the ... view more luxury of traveling without worry, I'd suggest going with M20895! We saw the great little local spots along the way that I would have never known about. Such a great time!

 3  Rachel A “Great Service and Friendly Staff” 2011-11-02
I went to Tikal, Rio Dulce, Livingston, and Flores with them. The van was air conditioned, the made stops, the activities were great! We went over Christmas and ... view more the staff brought fire crackers for us to set off to celebrate! They answered all our questions and were there for everything you need. Pick up and drop off from your place of residence. It is a little on the more expensive side but well worth your money. You get what you pay for and with M20895 you get it all! I have friends that went with them surfing and had a great time as well!

I was able to travel to Antigua, Guatemala this past May. Having little Spanish skills and not knowing the area very well I was very hesitant on touring outside ... view more of Antigua. After searching for a travel agency that I felt comfortable with I came across M20895. I ended up going on several different excursions with them. I traveled to El Salvador, Tikal, and Pacaya with M20895. I don't have a single negative comment to say. I felt completely safe, comfortable, and I had a blast. I was able to see a lot of different things that most tour groups wouldn't have. The tour was very organized and stayed on schedule so we didn't miss out on anything. I am more than satisfied with M20895 and would highly recommend this agency to anyone wanting to see Guatemala or El Salvador in a safe, comfortable, and exciting way.

I went to Antigua to volunteer for 3 weeks, but I also wanted to see other places in the area so I looked for a travel company that did weekend trips. Some ... view more people I had met there recommended M20895 so I checked it out. I met Carlos who told me all about the programs they offered. He was really friendly and professional and I ended up choosing the weekend trip to El Salvador. It was a great choice! The place Carlos took us was absolutely gorgeous and he knew the area and the owner of the hotel very well. The food was delicious, the pool and beach was gorgeous, the hammocks were relaxing and the surfing was so much fun. It was an amazing weekend for a great price. Carlos is definitely trustworthy and he really cares about his customers. I would recommend it to everyone.

I went to Guatemala to volunteer, but was looking for a company that would provide trips on the weekends so that I could see what else Guatemala had to offer. ... view more My first weekend there, my friend was going on a trip to Lake Atitlan with a different travel company in Antigua so I decided to go along. The trip ended up being a disaster and we even came home early because it was so bad. The next weekend my friends and I decided to go with M20895 on their Tikal trip. The trip was amazing! We had a private shuttle, and our driver was awesome. Although the drive was long, the hours flew by. We never had to worry about finding a good restaurant to eat at, and the hotels had us stay in were very nice. The tour guide the had set up for us at Tikal was awesome too. He spoke both spanish and english, and was extremely knowledgeable about the Mayan culture and country. The next day we went to Livingston and got to swim in hot springs and natural pools. The whole trip was amazing. Carlos, the tour coordinator is awesome! He'll help you coordinate any trip you have in mind. Booking trips with M20895 is extremely safe and affordable and well worth your money. Whether you want an extreme adventure packed weekend or a nice relaxing getaway, M20895 has it all.

Carlos the tour coordinator is ... view more very friendly, helpful, resourceful, knowledgeable and makes you feel very safe at all times through your travels. I highly recommend him. Their cars are new and have AC, they also carry insurance (not common in Cental America)!! The Tikal and Rio Dulce tour was great I had time to relax and enjoy nature. My favorite part of the tour was the boat ride on the Rio Dulce to the water falls of Siete Altares a series of gorgeous limestone waterfalls tucked up in the jungle, each ending in an emerald pool of cool and fresh mountain water on the mouth of the Carribean Sea!

There were many stops, along with our main destination, great resturants and hotels/hostels, and tons of fun. I reccommend M20895 to everyone traveling in the area, looking for a fantastic adventure. Unlike some other travel companies, M20895 doesn't hide certain aspects of what you need to pay for, they don't charge you for unnecessary things, and make sure you're well covered.

But in the Vans, with air-con and ample room, its much more enjoyable! Highly recommend.

 12  Pavel Palma “Amazing weather, great people!” 2011-10-20
I took 2 trips with M20895, the first was to Yalu coffee plantation. Our tour guide Jade was informative and helpful, the zip lining was awesome, during our ... view more coffee tour Jade was very helpful with translating the Spanish tour to English. Nixon our driving was very informative about sights we drove by on our way to Yalu and Back.

The other tour I took was to El Zonte, El Salvador the drive there was quick and efficient. Once there our tour guide Jade escorted us to our rooms and made sure we had everything we needed. Jade accompanied us to the beach the next day for our surf lessons to make sure we were safe and happy, Alex our instructor was awesome and down to earth well worth the lessons. El Zonte was amazing our hotel was right on the beach the staff and people were very friendly, I recommend going to El Salvador with M20895 and having Jade as your tour guide.
