    We utilize the Gray Line agency Adolfo our tour guide and Mynor our chofer. This tour was so complete and beautiful. Adolfo has the charisma and is knowledgeable of his culture! Both English and Spanish languages were spoken and we had a blast. I asked to let us shop at the Market and he didn’t even hesitate. Would call him again if I needed him! transportation was top of the line with a very good chofer. Blessings for him!

    Adolfo was very knowledgeable and helpful during our tour. It was a Guatemalan holiday by chance, the day of the Virgin of the assumption, and we witnessed the procession outside the cathedral. That isn’t on the itinerary! The van was nice, the driver was great, all in all, a nice tour. And we finished I. Just over three hours, just as billed.

    Winston Cuk was our guide on this trip and was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything and answers all your questions. I highly recommend Winston Cuk and hope that I will have the opportunity to go on another trip with him.

    Our guide was so knowledgeable about the history of the city. He taught us so much about the architecture and customs of the land. The tour guides name was Winston and has been the nicest person we have met on the tours, all were nice but he went the extra mile to make sure we had the experience we were looking for.

    We had an afternoon flight back to the U.S., but we had the morning free. Luckily there was this option to book a quick tour of Guatemala City. We had already toured around Antigua and Tikal, so this was our last day to get a dose of Guatemalan history and culture. We were greeted by Adolfo at our hotel. We were fortunate to have him as a guide in Antigua, so it was really nice to see him again. He toured us around the main tourist sites of Guatemala City, including a new development in the town of Cayala. Cayala is a modern development of shopping and residential. It felt more like Southern California meets Europe. It didn't feel like Guatemala anymore, but it was interesting to visit nonetheless. The tour was a mix of driving around the city with time spent walking around as well. Adolfo even bought us a quick snack by Palacio Nacional. Our tour was completed in 3 hours - with just enough time to get a coffee before heading to the airport. If you have limited time, this is a great option!

    I had booked a tour for 10am. Unfortunately, I took a turn for the worst health wise the night before the tour. I suffered from a horrible headache, coughing and high fever. I was worried of exposure to Covid. I had to cancel less than 24 hours before. I didn’t ask for my money back only if I could reschedule for next month. It was agreed since I paid 100 US dollars. When I went to reschedule they asked to charge me twice at 200 for a 3 hour tour. I asked for no money back only to compromise and reschedule. I would look for a company with better service. This seems suspicious.
