We were staying a few days in San Ignacio to try and see some of the cool things in the area. I wanted to see Tikal but had read that getting across the border and to the site could be a bit tricky and wasn't sure I wanted to do it. We spoke with a lovely lady about Tikal and... More

We used K'atun Ahaw Tour for 3 total trips and it as well worth it. I've traveled around the world and used dozens of tour guides. I loved working with Elias from start to finish. He ensured that all of our expectations were met- even when we ran into weather issues. We spoke to other couples while we were in... More

Elias was a fantastic tour guide to ATM. From coordination of the tour stateside to the day of the tour, he made things easy and communication was great. He was very knowledgeable about the cave, Mayans and the country in general and freely shared the information in a fun and informative way! Lunch, made by his wife, was a deliious... More

Elias was our guide from San Ignacio and through Tikal National Park. He was so accommodating, informative and personable. He took us on two walks through Tikal- one sunset tour and another morning tour (great times to go, cooler with less crowds). Elias pointed out wildlife, let us move at our pace, explained lots of history with great respect for... More

I spent 2 weeks inbetween Guatemala and Belize in May and this is the first review I write about the services and hotels I used during this period. The reason is that after extensive research on internet I selected Elias agency based on reviews. He replied quickly to every single of my emails full of requests and questions. On top... More

I went on both the Tikal and ATM tour with Elias in June. These tours were cheaper than other tour groups. He is a very nice, funny and down to earth person. He was very knowledgable about both places. We got to both places early in the morning to beat the crowd, which was nice when walking around and taking... More

I did the ATM and Tikal day tours with Elias while in Belize mid May. Elias has an excellent knowledge of not only the destinations you will adventure to, but also anything you could encounter along the way. ATM gets "crowded" due to it being a small cave holding a few groups at a time, but Elias was able to... More

We went on both ATM and Tikal tours and had Elias for both. He is absolutely excellent, a first class tour guide. Two very memorable days and Elias was a key part of that. His care and attention to each tour is outstanding, his cultural and historical knowledge fantastic and he made us feel safe at all times. Book with... More

We did both the ATM tour and the tikal tour with these guys. The ATM was truly excellent, Elias really knew his stuff and was an excellent guide throughout the whole trip. 5* The tikal tour was still good but we were passed to different guides which was one thing we were trying to avoid. Our guide for the tour... More

We went with K'Atun Ahaw Culture tours and had Elias as our guide to Tikal and the ATM cave. Elias is an outstanding guide and teacher. We felt very safe and his expertise in Mayan history and culture would be difficult to beat. He is an absolute gem and we would highly recommend him.
