“Carlos rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We were on a very short stay in Guatemala - a few days in Antigua and one night at Lake Atitlan. Carlos was the guide who drove us from Antigua through the Highlands to the Lake. He was right on time for our early pick up, and was SO FRIENDLY and ENGAGING!

On the Pan American Highway, traffic came to a complete standstill, due to a mudslide. Once we realized it would not be opened up anytime soon, Carlos ventured off with us to find a back way to our destination. ...over some mountains and through some woods, some small village/towns too, he did get us there. The drive was scenic and Carlos kept filled us in on lots of Guatemalan history and current day politics. We loved it, and honestly enjoyed the detour.

Carlos picked us up the next morning to get us to the airport - not a short drive from Lake Atitlan. But we left plenty of time, so he took us to one of his favorite local spots for breakfast. Delicious place, super friendly people, as all over in Guatemala!

We definitely plan to return to Guatemala for a longer stay and will absolutely be calling Carlos to help us plan our trip!

“Best Guide in Guatemala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We met Carlos two trips ago as an airport pickup on a house we rented. We now feel like we know him as a friend. He is immediately likable, helpful, and knowledgable. The price he charged was very reasonable for bilingual service and for transportation in a very comfortable, large vehicle. In a country that has security issues, it is smart to find someone you trust. We are thrilled to have been introduced to Carlos and his complany, Guatemalan Tour Guide -- we look forward to seeing him again soon. Very highly recommended. -- Michael A. (Costa Rica)

“A very reliable solution for Guatemala!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Carlos had arranged everything in good order. Full tour, tight schedule but without delays, a lot of different things to see and do at very short period and with very short notice at a high pick period. He discussed a lot with us, he proposed the best alternatives and he gaved as what we where looking....."Adventure with safety" at the best possible price. Exactly what we asked!!!

“Safe, reliable transportation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I first met Carlos when studying abroad in Antigua as a young 28 year old woman. It was important that I found a trustworthy source for transportation. Carlos was it! A year after my time in Antigua, I returned with my soon-to-be husband to get married! We had many first time American travelers to Guatemala arriving and departing on multiple different days for the wedding. Carlos was prompt, gracious and extremely polite to all of our guests and made them feel comfortable in his country. We also scheduled a tour to Lake Atitlan for our friends and family. The transportation Carlos provided was dependable and safe, which was important given the inexperience of our wedding guests. We love Carlos and would highly recommend his company and services to any and all!
