Amazing and Informative tour!
Erwin was a great tour guide who took time to explain the history of guatamela. We went over the allocated time for the tour and ended up eating lunch at a local restaurant with him. We even booked him for the trip back to guatamela city. I highly recommend this tour company! I had such a great time and can't wait to be back.

100% Recommend You Do This!!
Aug 2021
I've been on walking tours in the past, and was always happy when they were over. This walking tour is definitely not like that. My man Erwin showed my girlfriend and I around Antigua for the afternoon, giving us deep knowledge of Guatemala's past and how it ties into La Antigua Guatemala as it is today. The city is obviously gorgeous, but I have a deeper appreciation for it having gone on this tour.

We got pretty lucky and were the only people with Erwin, but I highly recommend you reach out through their website to schedule a private tour for your group. Erwin was able to accommodate restroom stops, coffee breaks, and extra time spent at each site so we weren't fast walking everywhere.

Best Tour in Antigua
Jun 2021
I had the pleasure of taking another tour with Erwin on our second trip to Antigua. Knowing we had previously taken a tour with him, Erwin customized this one to visit new landmarks. He even changed his plan on the spot when he learned that we were interested in visiting the market. I love his tours so much because of not only because of the knowledge he shares, but also his passion for sharing his country. I recommend taking this tour early in your visit; it gives a great overview of the city and can help inform your plans for the rest of your trip. I highly recommend taking a tour with Erwin (or his company); it is most definitely a highlight of Antigua.

Excellent walking tour
Excellent walking tour of La Antigua for my family of 8. Erwin was gracious enough to meet us at our hotel. He was full of knowledge of the city and communicated with enthusiasm. Perfect English. SO much in the area that can be appreciated better with a guide. I definitely would recommend this tour and would use their services again when we return. Thanks Erwin!

Two days of excellent tours
Jul 2021 • Couples
Erwin was very knowledgeable about Antigua, and it’s history. We explored several different points of interest and felt that we had a very good understanding of the layout of the city after the tour. Erwin also suggested a local, authentic restaurant to eat at (very good!). We were also pleased to hear that he offered other tours and would take us to Guatemala City after the tour was over. The next day he picked us up from our hotel and took us on a 5 hour tour. Points of interest included; a coffee plantation, a macadamia farm, several small towns with special artistic abilities (leather workers and weavers) he also took us to a quint, authentic restaurant for lunch. Erwin was very accommodating and wanted to make sure we had a good time, and we truly did! We highly recommend his services. Forgot to mention that his van is very comfortable and safe.

So great the first time we did another tour on our 2nd trip.
Jun 2021 • Couples
We did a walking tour with Erwin on our first trip to Antigua back in 2019. We enjoyed his tour so much that we decided to do another when we returned in June 2021. Erwin has such a vast knowledge of the city and its history it is astonishing. He is also very knowledgeable on current events as we talked about how different Antigua was pre/post Covid. We covered new and different tour sites the second time around, so it is not just simply a rehearsed script. We mentioned wanting to see the Central Market so he made a point to take us and navigate us through the huge maze of the market that is easy to get lost in. You cannot go wrong with this tour or any of the tour packages his company offers. Definitely recommend!

Passionate and Informed Tour Guide
Jun 2021
We were highly pleased with the amount and variety of information provided by our tour guide Erwin. He was able to provide information about a range of topics from history to culture to modern life in Antigua and Guatemala. His energy throughout the tour was impressive. Our brains and bodies got a workout. We would highly recommend him and his company to anyone seeking a tour in Antigua or Guatemala.

Excellent tour with an excellent guide
Dec 2020 • Friends
Erwin was an absolutely fantastic tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable and definitely has a passion for his city! He even recommended and joined us for an extremely delicious, traditional Guatemalan meal. We not only had a blast on our tour, but also gained a life long friend. I highly recommend taking a tour with Erwin.
