If you climb to the top of this temple you'll get great views of the park and the surrounding temples. Definitely worth doing.

If you climb up those stairs, you will have a great view of the plaza and the temple 1. You can also see the top of the other temples rising over the canopy. Sit on the benches and enjoy the view.

One of the many temples within the Tikal park, all of which are worth seeing. Easy on foot to get around with or without a guide.

Another large pyramid, opposite Temple I on the great plaza. At the back of the temple there are stairs to the top, which gives you great views of great plaza and Temple I.
