Traveler Reviews

    We went out early at 7 am when the vendors at the market was were still setting up and Calle Real wasn't too busy with pedestrians. It was fun to walk the city streets and connect with local hotels and vendors. We also visited several cathedrals as well as the presidential palace. It was a feast for the eyes and camera. Our driver Juan Carols was also very good - very patient with each stop.

    Very good experience.

    A driver and guide picked my co-worker and I up at our hotel and took us to the heart of the city. We toured for a couple of hours, which I felt was adequate to see the sites. Our guide was knowledgeable and his English was good. Be prepared to walk portions of the tour. There was never a time when I didn't feel safe jumping into a stranger's car. I'm glad I toured Guatemala City because I would have wondered what it is like if I didn't, but some of the other tours we took were more interesting, hence the four stars.

    Juan-Pablo was a great tour guide and told us a lot about the city and the country. Honestly speaking, there is not too much to see in Guatemala City, but this short tour is a great first-day orientation.

    Juan Pawlo had a wealth of knowledge about his city and country and was a very engaged guide. Enjoyed my half day tour!

    Felt safe the entire time.
