    We booked a tour for 5 people. Irwin, our guide, was waiting for us. It was a great day. Irwin did a fantastic job. Great driver, very safe and helpful. Irwin answered all our questions, shared information about Guatemala, Antigua, etc. It was beautiful day. Irwin was good about telling us what he had planned for the day but also offering to make any adjustments we might request. He is proud of his country while also aware of the challenges that it confronts. We all enjoyed the day. It was our best excursion out of the five that we booked. Irwin answered all our questions. We had a great lunch at a cafe we would never have found on our own. Antigua is a beautiful city. We enjoyed being in a small group. I highly recommend Irwin (MB Guatemala Travel).

    We had a private tour of Antigua including a trip to the Carolina Textile company and Jade Museum.
    Irwin was a very special driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable and proud of his country. He went out of his way to please us . We would hire him again if we come back to Guatemala!

    Today my wife and I had a great experience with GTM providing our private tour from Puerto Quetzal to the beautiful city of Antigua. Felix, our driver and tourguide was fabulous. He waited for us with a sign showing our names so we could avoid the normal queues leaving the port. Felix stopped the car whenever we wanted to take pictures and during the 3 hour walking tour through the town of Antigua he managed to show us all the interesting buildings and sites and timed this in such a way that large crowds were avoided. Felix provided us with a tremendous amount of inside information leaving us with no more questions to ask!

    Our excursion was not at all what we paid for. We never got to go to the coffee plantation, no wine tastin and no water. What we got was a walk around Antiqua. The actual tour provider offered a 10 dollar per person refun or a talk about chocolate next to a fake cocoa tree. The owner was not helpful at all. We had to pay for our lunch and buy water. I was so very disappointed. I have contacted Viator about this excursion. When inrecieved an email response about my call they used the other persons name. It was me who paid on my credit card and me who contacted Viator but they didnt get that right after having spent over 20 minutes on hold just to talk to a person.
    The city of Antiqua is nice but was appalled at the tour companies response to not providing what was paid for. Also frustrated that Viator couldnt get my name right when I paid for the tour on my credit card.

    Guide and driver were waiting for us when we got off the ship! They said they needed 4 for the excursion, but there were only the two of us and they still took us! We had a fun day!
