Overview

Antigua Guatemala is located just 1:15 hours from Puerto quetzal in Guatemala. Founded in 1543, Antigua remains very similar to its original layout. Once, the capital for the Spanish kingdom established in Central America now is considered a heritages world site according to Unesco since 1979 and also one of the most charming and safest cities in Central America.
During this quick visit, you will enjoy the interesting talk of our experienced guide about the citys traditions and history. Our highlight, its the visit to Santo Domingo Monastery and Resort. This XVI century, "half-restored" property has opened to its visitors the old facilities. In this magnificent location, you will experience a high-end atmosphere at any moment but also you will be capable to witness history in every detail. The complex offers amongst its main attractions museums for glass, art and silver, crypts, murals, catacombs and more. This is definitely the kind of tour you cant miss.

    This excursion was just what I hoped it would be. Our guide, Eduardo, was waiting for our group of four at the pier. He proceeded to lead us on a personalized tour of Antigua and the area that was pleasant and informative. He answered all our questions and even gave us an excellent suggestion for a place for lunch. Throughout, he was personable and informative and gave us a great introduction to the beautiful colonial city of Antigua.

    Our recent tour of Antigua was a highlight of our trip. Our guide Eduardo was knowledgeable and personable and our group of four especially enjoyed the personalized attention. Eduardo answered all our questions and pointed out many things we would have missed without his insights. Even his recommendation of a place for lunch was excellent.

    This tour day was enjoyable from start to finish! Our guide, Eduardo, was waiting at the port with our name on a sign, so he was easy to find. Second, the vehicle was clean and comfortable with blasting AC. Third, our driver, Marlon, always made us feel safe and secure, despite difficult roads and a motorcyclist with a death wish. Lastly, Eduardo was a really good guide. He took us to all the top sites and helped us see the details that explain so much about the Mayan culture and local history. He also introduced us to an excellent local restaurant and recommended a delicious local dish (pepian). For less than the price of a ship’s tour, we had an in depth tour tailored to our interests. We were well cared for throughout the tour. I highly recommend GT business & travel, and Eduardo (guide) and Marlon (driver). A first class team.

    the guide was well educated and polite.The pick up was punctual,the transport vehicle was good. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. there were a guide and a driver,so the guide could concentrate on us( we were a group of six)Antigua ,being an UNESCO heritage site still retained its colonial characteristics.One of them was the road paved with cobbled stones,which made the ride very uncomfortable.We had lunch in a local cafe. Food was good but no WIFI.WE enjoyed the trip. Even the front desk staff was nice, Bryon helped us a lot when NCL unexpected changed the date for the Antigua visit. Thanks everyone.
