We booked a shuttle service with Marissa starting at Belize International Airport. Moses, the driver, met us at the airport early AM and drove us to our hotel in San Ignacio with a stop at Belize Zoo en route per our request. He waited in the van while we visited the zoo. A couple days later, Marissa picked us up at 7:30AM from our San Ignacio hotel and drove us to the border for our overnight trip to Tikal. Another driver, arranged by Marissa, met us at the border and helped us with imigration in the Guatamalan side and with buying Tikal tickets at Banrural. He also offered to help with exchanging of money but we had already exchanged Guatamalan money in the US. We were then picked up next day by the same driver at 10:30AM at our hotel in Tikak. He drove us back to the border where we were met up by Moses who drove us to Belize municipal airport for our flight Ambergris. Overall, the shuttle vans were clean, air conditioned, and the drivers were very nice. Highly recommend using Mayan Heart for the transfer service.

I really didn't want to pay the 350usd per person for an overnight Tikal tour, knowing I could book the hotel and tour separately. So we decided just to book the round trip shuttle with Mayan Heart and do the rest ourselves as. Marissa was absolutely fantastic to deal with (it helped that I mostly tried to speak in my broken Spanish). She came to collect payment at my hotel and gave me a whole breakdown of who would be coming to get us, the process, etc. She was very pleasant. The driver, Moses, and our guide Sergio were great fun. They got us through the border with ease and to our hotel. The next day they picked us up at the time they had said, and drove us back (with a driver switch in Belize). Great team all around! Muchas gracias Marissa!

More expensive than taking a bus to Flores and a shuttle from there to Tikal, but Maya Heart's direct morning shuttle saved my family a lot of time. Marissa picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the border. The Guatemalan driver shepherded us through the border process and to our Tikal hotel. Great service! The only questionable thing was the money-changer our driver introduced us to. There was no easy way to tell if he was giving us a good rate.

We used Marissa's transport service between San Ignacio and Tikal for an overnight trip to Tikal National Park, and it went smoothly. The driver and van on the Belize side were different from those on the Guatemala side. Between the trip over and back, we had three drivers, all of whom were very punctual, professional, and friendly, and drove safely. The vans were clean, air-conditioned, and in great shape. The driver helped us exchange money for Guatemalan quetzales, pay the Guatemala entrance fee at the border, purchase Tikal National Park tickets, and go through immigration/customs. We paid USD$90 per person roundtrip. We were able to pay online before the trip after a brief email exchange to confirm the details with Marissa. We were picked up from our hotel in San Ignacio at 7:30AM the first day and from our Tikal hotel at 10:30AM the following day. This itinerary allowed us 24 hours in Tikal. The trip between San Ignacio and the border took about 30 minutes. The trip between Tikal and the border took about 1.5 hours. We found this to be a good way to go between San Ignacio and Tikal. There are cheaper ways, using buses and colectivos, but that would take longer and mean less time at the park itself. There are more expensive ways, using an all-inclusive tour company that provides not only transportation but also lodging, meals and a guide, but we didn't want to pay that much and were comfortable arranging those logistics ourselves.

I took a trip to Tikal from San Ignacio with Marissa and everything about the experience was perfect. Marissas price was the best, and her fleet of vehicles are all new and safe and when we got to the Guatemala border everything went smooth and we had no issues throughout the trip. I ended up leaving my sunglasses in one of the vehicles and Marissa sent them back to me by mail the next day. The price, hospitality and safety 10/10, would do it all again. Highly recommend.
