  • Enjoyed very much...guide was very informative and accomodating

  • This was one of my favorite tours ever. Our tour guide from Guatemalan adventures was very knowledgeable of the areas we visited and, especially, the Mayan culture. I've spent several weeks in these areas about six months ago but learned and saw much more on this tour. The hotel in Panajachel was excellent. I toured in many countries and this was in the top five tours I've ever taken
