    We had a significant flight delay in the morning, but it was all still worth it! Without our guide, Tikal would have been just a pretty walk, but with the guide it was full of amazing history and context that we would not have received otherwise. The lunch was served in an outdoor restaurant and the food was excellent. It was a great way to start a big day of walking. Overall, the sheer historical depth of the site, and the vastness of it is mind-blowing. For sure, it is a full day of walking and climbing, bring walking shoes, water and snacks. If this trip is in your price range, or at the edge of it, I recommend doing it, this trip is is worth every penny. (FYI: for nervous flyers, know that the planes we flew on were very small but the flights were short and it was still worth it.)

    We did so much on the store. Well worth the money Carmen was our guide and was very nice and helpful. She answered all my questions. You get to see so much of Guatemala on this trip and do so much. I highly recommend it.

    Was fantastic from the time I was picked up till the end. The tour guides were extremely attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The views from Pacaya were breathtaking and relaxing in the pool with the hot water was a perfect way to end off the tour. Would recommend to anyone looking a fun adventure

    We found many places in Antigua a bit overwhelming for young children, but Hobbitenango held our 6 years old and 11 years old attention perfectly. It is easy to catch an Uber or taxi for the 15-20 minute ride from Antigua. The activities are fun and the scenery is incredible. I recommend about 3 hours for this outing.

    Tikal is amazing. Roel is an awesome guide, knowledge and accommodating. We added on Antigua transport, Yaxha, and sunrise and all were so worth it.

    We greatly enjoyed our tour of Copan and especially wanted to sing the praises of our guide and driver. Our guide, Ruben, was such a nice and impressive guy and so well informed on every subject. He had an incredible knowledge of Maya history, taught us a great deal, and answered every question patiently, thoughtfully and thoroughly. Our driver Adelso was also amazing. The traffic was horrible both ways and he negotiated it with great skill and good humor. Both men proved entertaining company for the ten hour drive. We also loved our good-humored and knowledgeable guide at Copan, Juan Carlos, and would definitely recommend his services.

    Excellent tour through the various villages surrounding Lake Atítlan. Hotel pickup and breakfast are provided, lunch and all other purchases are on you. Such an enriching experience exploring cultures so vastly different than our own. Highly recommend!

    Edwardo was fantastic and it was my first day in Guatemala City. English speaking and considerate, he escorted me to the market, ate lunch, visited the Basilica and helped me exchange money. I explained what I was interested in and he took me to a Mayan Ruin, where I also got to observe locals conducting a Mayan Fire Ritual. This was so interesting to me and I feel he went over and above to help me understand the culture.

    Our guide Mike was super knowledgeable & nice so he gets a 10 stars! He tried his best to keep us entertained as it was a private tour. I was not aware if this when I booked it on Trip Advisor but apparently no one else booked the tour so it was just the 3 of us( My husband, myself & tour guide).
    However, the trip itself from Antigua to the Ruins is a long drive. There is not much to see at the Ruins except experiencing the history of being there.
    After the Ruins, we drove to a Macadamia Nut Farm which was great. We had lunch in Antigua at Pasoda which was awesome l.
    We also bought some Jade Jewelry at one of the stops which was very interesting to see how the Jade Rock becomes a piece of beautiful jewelry!
    This tour also included Central Plaza ( park area) which you can basically do yourself.
    If you are not too keen on long drives and historic places, then take another tour.
    Overall good but the Ruins were not as nice as in Mexico or Belize.
    However, please use Mike for other tours as he is fantastic.

    We were so lucky to have Manny as our tour guide for the day trip to Antigua! Manny was incredibly fun and personable, and he had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Antigua and Guatemala. We enjoyed exploring Antigua by car and then on foot to get fully immersed in the city. Manny catered the tour based on what our group wanted to see, so we ended up seeing a jade museum and having a fantastic lunch at a local restaurant that we never would have found otherwise. Huge thanks to Manny for giving us such a great day, 11/10 would recommend this tour!

    Ruben was excellent and with all of his historical knowledge, the day flew by! Chencho was a great driver and got us to all of the places very quickly. Highly recommend!

    My friend Corey and I had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful cities of Antigua and Guatemala City. It was especially awesome because our English speaking tour guide, Esteban Calvillo, who was not only well informed in the the history of Guatemala, but he really enjoyed teaching foreigners on the history as well. Antigua is a traveler's favorite, well known for its cobblestone streets, volcano views, colonial architecture, and also it is the best known preserved Spanish Colonial city in Central America. Absolutely loved it. We also visited some of the main important areas in Guatemala City such as Mercado Central (central market) where we bought some fun handicrafts, blankets, and leather products at very affordable rates. We also visited the Palacio Nacional (National Palace) and took some photos and hung out with some locals. Finally, one of my places we visited was a place called Kaminaljuyu which is the site of the ancient Mayan civilization that dated back to 1500 B.C
    Thanks Esteban for making this tour very very fun and insightful. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Guatemala!
