    This was our best tour in Guatemala! Josue was our guide and works for Guatemala adventure. He was so informative, knowledgeable and basically the best guide! I love when I book tours where I feel I got my money’s worth. And this is it!!

    We had a lovely day in Antigua. However, we had requested an English speaking guide, and our guide's English was so heavily accented that we had great difficulty understanding him.

    The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable and the programme of the tour was great too. Antigua is definitely a must when you are staying in the area.

    We got lucky, we were the only two on the tour for the day. Our guide was very good at following the pace we set, had perfect english plus 3 other languages, and let us detour as we desired. Push for more local and authentic and you’ll get it. The van was nearly brand new and very comfortable.
