Puerto Quetzal Shore Excursion - Colonial Antigua City Highlights
Feb 2020
We had originally signed up for the Antigua Self Guided trip, but ended up upgrading to the Colonial Antigua City Highlights as we were in the van with 4 others who were on that tour. Our guide, Fausto, nicely offered us this upgrade to join them on their tour and we were glad we did. You think you can tour on your own, but you experience it more richly when with a knowledgeable guide. We had a 90 min. AC ride from Puerto Quetzal to Antigua while Fausto spoke about the area and history. The walking tour was informative and the history quite impressive for this city. Lunch at the Convent of Santa Catalina under the arch was very good. Thank you, Fausto!

An eye opening tour
Feb 2020
Our guide, Juan Pablo, gave a great insight into his country's history and present challenges. He is obviously known and respected by local people. There are a lot of hawkers but I saw no beggars. The sight of guards outside banks with shotguns was a little shocking. However, on the tour I felt at all times safe and fascinated by what we saw and heard. Because we were a small group we got to see far more and received far more positive attention. For example our tour of the Jade factory included far more than those received on the official cruise tour.

Enjoyed colonial Antigua tour
Our guide Juan Pablo was excellent! Very knowledgeable, funny, a great ambassador for his country, but, very open about the challenges it faces. We loved the view and the up close aspect of the volcanoes and even saw plume from one of them emitted several times. We are late-50's, one of us has mobility issues and found the town tour challenging. 2.5 hours walking on mostly cobblestone roads and narrow, uneven sidewalks. However, JP immediately addressed our concern, got the van and shortened our walk when we expressed ourselves. Van holds 8 (6 guests), has AC and our driver was very skilled and polite. Traffic was challenging on highway, bit crazy in city so his work was not unnoticed. We might suggest a couple more stops before town and a shorter walk in city. Overall, recommended, especially because of the staff.

We had a great day driving around in a van with 6 other passengers. seeing the sites and eating in a decent restaurant for lunch. It was fun to watch the bigger busses pulling up and I began to appreciate being with a small group for site seeing.

Amazing Antigua
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did a shore excursion from the Port. It was a great way of getting into Antigua and seeing it from a local's perspective. The tour was comfortable with lots of easy walking to really see this truly beautiful place. Our guide Adolfo was brilliant and our driver Ivan was very good and very funny. Adolfo took us for lunch to a great little place and we sampled some local specialities that were delicious.
Best of all ... they were waiting for us at the pier when we arrived and had us back in plenty of time to continue our cruise.
Thanks guys!
We'd recommend this tour and were sad we only had one day to spend in beautiful Antigua!

Great tour. Such a long drive from Antigua that we had 10-12 at the market and could meet for lunch at the church.
