Authentic Guatemala literally made my last minute trip to Guatemala so memorable. I landed with zero plans, but I knew I wanted to a handful of activities in 5 days. When the hotel reached out to this tour company on my behalf, A.G. made every effort to accommodate me based on my wants, time preferences, and budgets. I ended up doing 4 tours with this company in 4 straight days! 1) Antigua tour 2) Lake Atitlan tour 3) Climbing Pacaya tour 4) Guatemala City tour The different tour guides at every tour were very knowledgeable , spoke great English, and were more then willing to take tons of pictures for you. The transfer car was very nice, comfortable, and roomy. The drivers were very polite and tried to give interesting information along the way of the things we passed up. Tour company took all protective measures to ensure the safety during the Covid pandemic. By the end of the tours, I can honestly say I've had a blast and each tour had spectacular and unforgettable memories. All thanks to Fabio and his group of professional guides.

I highly recommend Authentic Guatemala for nomads, backpackers, and expats. I booked a shuttle from the airport to Antigua and it was perfect service. The driver, Fabio, was on time, communicated very well (in perfect English), and made pick up very easy. COVID precautions were also in place and I felt safe and secure. On the way to Antigua we chatted about Guatemalan history and culture. It was one of the most efficient and enjoyable rides in a new country I've ever had. I will be booking with them more.

I was picked up from May hotel in Guatemala City and had a private tour of Antigua followed by a hike up (2.5k) Pacaya Volcano. Full day. This tour made my trip, it was excellent. Luis my guide was fantastic, he show me all around the old city, he was so knowledgeable and informative. We went in the the cathedral, cocoa museum, jade factory, rum producer and had lunch in a local restaurant and visited the stunning hotel Santo Domingo. The view of Agua Volcano were amazing. We then drove to Pacaya (1.5hr) before starting the 1.5hr hike. I suggest wear good walking shoes. It may be a tough walk for some people so just take your time or use the horses, most people hike. When we reached the top I had of the most incredible views of my life, a flowing river of lava!! The views of the city and other volcanos were great. I highly recommend Fabio who arranged my tour. I felt safe the whole time. The best time to see the lava is a clear day and before sunset so you get the contrast of the orange lava as it gets dark.

The entire thing was amazing. They pick us up on time and drove us there and back. The Guatemalan people are one of the kindness people I ever met. Our tour guy was very knowledgeable and kind. So much history behind every building. The tour guys was with us for 3 hours and we had such a great time. I recommend this business, if you ever visit Guatemala, do not leave without seeing Antigua.
