you get picked up at a local hotel or fly in from Guatemala City airport to Santa Elena. It's about 45/50 mins to Tikal and then we spent four/five hours in the company of our guide. There were options in English and Spanish. We toured all the main temple sites from 9am to about 1.30 and then a lunch was provided. We ended up back in Santa Elena for about 3.30/4pm. Guide was excellent. Groups are about a dozen people each.
