    When I booked my ticket earlier for the tour, I thought it to be a collective tour. Lucky for me, I was the only customer for the tour. Getting into the van and introducing each other, I immediately felt that both my guide Ruben and driver Carlos will make the day special and memorable for me. Ruben has a fathom of knowledge on all the components of the tour that was so nicely designed to cover a magnificent natural and cultural experience that Guatemala has to offer to the world. In my opinion ,this tour is a must see!! All along, Ruben kept me informed about fascinating facts and we were engaged in interesting conversations about the historical, cultural and geological importance of the area. Timing covered on each site was perfect and the day was absolutely well worth. Carlos has been a great driver, very courteous and kind as well. Peter from Guat2Do was in touch with me all along. I was traveling solo. He assured me everything will be safe and it was. Guat2Do did a fantastic job!!

    The tour picked us up in Guatemala City, so we were in the car for quite some time on crowded, narrow, winding roads. We had breakfast on the way (not included), so had a full stomach the rest of the drive, then got on a boat. I didn't loose my breakfast in the water, but nearly. The lake and volcanos are stunning, and all our drivers very skilled. The market at San Juan has so much stunning art to purchase, be sure to pack accordingly so you have room to bring your items home with you. Some of the shops only take local currency, but many take credit cards, so maybe just ask before you make your final selection. Our demonstration on native methods of textile production was short, but informative, maybe if our group had asked more questions, the demonstrator would have been more engaged. We ate at a lovely restaurant on the way home, but didn't spend much time in Santa Catarina. Our guide was kind and informative, the driver was efficient and skilled. We had a great day!

    This was a long day from Guatemala City but totally worth it. We got to see a couple of villages around Lake Atitlan that were accessible via a small boat and ate at a restaurant with stunning views of the lake.

    This one day tour was a great way to see many sites that the lake and surrounding areas have to offer. Well-organized, comprehensive, and our guide was great!

    Alla fine é finito per essere un tour privato con la guida Ruben Alonzo, davvero professionale, estremamente competente ed empatico. Mi ha fatto scoprire le bellezze di questo lago, i suoi paesini limitrofi e mi ha fornito tantissime informazioni utili. Verso l’ora di pranzo sono stata male, probabile intossicazione alimentare classica, e Ruben mi ha supportata in tutto e per tutto, portandomi in farmacia e dandomi un supporto concreto e morale non scontato. Consiglio questa guida davvero tanto, bravo e competente. I posti che ho visto poi, sono davvero magici. Consigliatissimo

    Una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido, ver como un pueblo indígena se unió, se levantó, se construyó y sale adelante en función del turismo es admirable... Todo gira en torno a que nuestra visita sea la mejor experiencia y eso es woooow Un paseo agradable, lleno de color, de tradición, de gente amable de costumbres y forma de trabajar que lleva forjandose cientos de años, una experiencia que recomiendo al 1000% visitar San Juan fue transportarme a otro tiempo lleno de magia e historia.

    If you’re short on time, this is a great way to visit some of Lake Atitlán’s villages in one day. Winston was a wonderful guide - very informative and attentive. My tour included four guests plus Winston and the driver so it was a very personalized experience.

  • 11-Jul-2022

    Very great day with Winston. Awesome experiences in san juan with the mayan weavers and medicine abuelas. Recommend eating before you show up, so much to do we did not finish until late! Well worth the price for the day. The drive alone is worth it.

    If you’re staying in Antigua or Guatemala City, and you want the full Lake Atitlan experience without having to risk your life driving there-this is the tour for you! FYI Guatemala has some of the curviest roads I’ve ever seen-so if you get motion sick easily, take Dramamine. Nothing against the drivers, it’s just that there are zero straight roads to lake Atitlan.
