What to expect
Kick off your full-day Guatemala City and Antigua sightseeing tour with hotel pick up. Head with your expert guide to Avenue of the Americas—named in 1948—where you’ll venture to the Civic Center. Notice the impressive buildings surrounding this popular destination, which date back to the 1950s and 60s. You’ll wander past City Hall, the National Mortgage Bank and the Supreme Court, as well as other municipal structures. Your guide will show you murals by artist Dagoberto Vasquez and explain the scenes straight out of Guatemalan history that are showcased in his work. You’ll also see impressive and colorful mosaic work by Carlos Merida. From the Civic Center you will head to Constitution Plaza (Plaza de la Constitucion). Your guide will point out the famous structures that surround you, like the National Palace of Culture, the National Library and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Once you’ve taken in the beauty and history of Guatemala City, follow your guide through the stalls of the city’s Central Market. You’ll see handicrafts, colorful textiles, leather goods and jewelry that make great gifts and keepsakes to remember this incredible day. Savor a traditional lunch with your guide and fellow travelers at a local restaurant before heading to Antigua—about 45 minutes west of the capital—in air-conditioned comfort. This stunning city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized for its Spanish colonial style and charm. Your guide will lead you on a walking tour of the old city’s cobble stone streets, past key sites like Central Park, the Palace of the Captain Generals, City Hall and the Archbishop’s Palace. Wander past the iconic Sirens’ Fountain, which was built in the 1930s before making your way to the whitewashed halls of San Jose Cathedral. The Baroque architecture of this iconic church proves a highlight of this memorable tour. Your guide will share insight and information about the underground passageways that cloistered nuns once used to cross the street while you take in the building’s beauty. Before returning to Guatemala City and your hotel, make a final stop at La Merced Church where you’ll marvel at Antigua’s largest fountain and savor your last bit of colonial beauty.

Juan Pablo is FANTASTIC! Give him a raise!
Mar 2019 • Solo
I’m a solo traveler. When I travel I like to spend the first day of my trips doing my own thing and finding little gems myself. However, the second day I like to book tours with local guides to get a better sense of the country I am in. JP exceeded all of my expectations. He was ON TIME and extremely friendly and personable. He loves what he does for a living and it shows! This tour will not let you down and you get the perfect amount of time in each city for pictures, shopping and loads of interesting facts and history of the cities. I will definitely be booking again on my next visit to Guatemala and requesting any tour that he is leading! Manuel did a great job driving as well.

Abbreviated tour for those in a hurry
Feb 2019 • Solo
I have to say that the best part of this tour were my driver (Urbano) & tour guide (Transito Adolfo). They were respectively fropm Guatemala City & Antigua and were incredibly knowledgeable. They entertained many of my questions and photo requests and were very candid.

I will say Antigua is amazing and a must see. Truth be told, would recommend just a full day Antigua tour if you're able to secure this as there's not much to see within GC. But that said, for someone like me who had limited time and was in fact stayin in GC, this tour made the most sense.

Do it alone, more time tiding in car than at market
Great tour. Such a long drive from Antigua that we had 10-12 at the market and could meet for lunch at the church.
