          Magical day of Guatemalan culture on the Lake
          We loved our trip to Lake Atitlán our driver was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient with us while we shopped and stayed longer and still got all our tour highlights done. We are a busy family of five and we loved speeding across the Lake and visiting all the merchants. Quality tour all around.

          Mirko was an excellent guide
          Enjoyed our tour with Mirko who spoke very good English. He gave us many facts about the history, culture and politics of Guatemala. The tour duration was good, with half day spent in Antigua and the other half part at the Iximche archeological ruins.

          Guatemalan cooking class in Antigua Guatemala
          Today we went to a cooking class. We booked this through a la Carta tours in Antigua Guatemala. The company is Foodietenango, guatemala. This is an excellent class. They taught us how to make guacamole, roasted Salsa, Chicken pepian and a dessert made with mashed plantains and stuffed with chocolate, beans and deep fried. All the recipes were from his mom and grandma. They cooked for us at his home. This was by far the best cooking class we've done. They picked us up at the hotel and we took a tuk tuk back.

          Great Tour of Lake Atitlan!
          We truly enjoy our lake Atitlan tour with Gustavo. He was a great guide! He was informative. The boat ride was absolutely beautiful! I would definitely recommend this service to anyone that wants to experience the culture and see beautiful view of the lake and surrounding volcanos

          Good Tour, Bad Isms (Sexism and Prejudice)
          My husband and I went on a tour with Gustavo. He is a pretty good guy; he was very informative regarding history and culture. However, during the last bit of our trip, I think he got a little too comfortable with us and started to comment negatively on a woman’s body shape, he also talked badly about Californians which left a bad taste in my mouth as I have family there, but after reading a previous comment, it made sense as to why he doesn’t like Californians as he acted very unprofessional in one previous tour with Californians. He also started talking about tips, which made us feel compelled to leave a tip. Overall, would recommend the trip to a friend as long as sexism and discrimination is handled by management in the future.

          Amazing and well worth the cost!
          Our tour guide, Louis was fabulous and so informative. He taught us and demonstrated how different coffee beans grow. The travel vehicle was comfty. Loved the stop at the weavers, where we learned how cotton is transformed into yarn using natural plants for dye. Overall, fabulous day trip!

          Great experience
          Everything was nicely organised. Driver picked us up from hotel at 4.15 am, dropped us at La Aurora airport with instructions to go to TAG airlines counter. Check in was easy. Guide picked us up at Flores airport. Tour was good. Total walk was about 7km. Lunch provided was very good. Dropped us back to the airport in the evening. Flight back to Guatemala City and the same driver picked us up and dropped us back to the hotel around 6.30pm. Long day, but totally worth it.

          Horrible tour and waste of money
          This was such a horrible “tour” I wish I could give it 0 stars. After being picked up, I discovered that the driver of the van did not speak English and while the tour guide Gustavo did, he still addressed the group in Spanish because apparently the rest of the people already on the van were bilingual. I had to interrupt Gustavo to tell him that I didn’t speak Spanish and that this was supposed to be an English speaking tour. After that, Gustavo never really addressed the group as a whole again as I would have expected him to do on our way to Lake Atitlan. I have taken several tours all over the world and every tour guide I have had before Gustavo would sit at the front of the van or bus and explain the history of where we were going and something about the country itself. Gustavo simply sat in the van silent like he was on vacation himself. My 3 friends and I were the last to be picked up and although Gustavo had notified me the night before of the pick-up time, he was 30 minutes late. After getting a late start, we hit some traffic leaving the city that caused us to be even further behind schedule. After the traffic cleared and knowing that we were now behind schedule, instead of continuing on to Lake Atitlan, Gustavo had us stop for breakfast for 1 hour. This was not mentioned in the tour’s itinerary and was a ridiculous waste of time in light of the fact that we were already running very late. I could only guess that Gustavo was hungry and was going to get a free meal at the restaurant. In any event and after breakfast, we hit more traffic making us fall even further behind schedule but again, instead of talking to us and enlightening us on where we were and where we were going as any decent tour guide would do, Gustavo went to the back of the van to an empty seat and took a nap. We pretty much drove in silence all the way to Panajachel . When we got off the van, Gustavo led us to the waiting boat that looked like it was 50 years old and informed us that we didn’t have time to tour the lake or go across it to Santiago de Atitlan but would be visiting another village instead, that is, San Antonio Palopo. Basically, this meant that the tour that I took my 3 friends on and paid for was not anything close to what was described in the itinerary for this tour. At that village, we visited a store for shopping and walked up to a church. It was ridiculous. I did not have to pay over $100 per person to see and do what we did at this village. Again, Gustavo did not tell us anything about the village, its people or the church. After spending about an hour at this village, we returned by boat to Panajachel where we were told we would have 1 ½ hours for dinner. This was insane. We paid to tour Lake Atitlan and now we were instead going to spend another 1 ½ hours to eat after already spending an hour for breakfast. Any decent tour guide would have addressed the group and inquired as to what we wanted to do in light of the fact that we were running behind schedule and ask us whether we preferred to spend another 1 ½ hours eating or stick to the itinerary and tour the lake and visit Santiago de Atitlan as described in the printed itinerary. I am confident that my fellow travelers would have opted for a tour of the lake as promised instead of taking the time for another meal as everyone seemed to be upset by this change in plans. After we had our dinner, Gustavo informed us we could have an additional ½ hour to explore Panajachel but according to the itinerary described on your website, we were to “stroll down Santander Street in Panajachel with our local guide.” Another description in the website’s itinerary that was never delivered. I blame the tour guide for the decisions he made. He obviously only cared about himself and never for a moment had our best interests at heart. The tour that I paid good money for was a waste as nothing that was described in the itinerary was delivered. Additionally, I was embarrassed in front of my friends because I had picked this horrible tour. I have been a huge fan of Tripadvisor for several years and I cannot emphasize enough how horrible this tour was and how disappointed my friends and I were.

          A fun day trip from Antigua!
          My friend and I booked this trip since we wanted to do a day trip from Antigua. The pickup/drop off service was excellent. There were 5 other people in our group which was nice, not too crowded. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was nice and tried to be as accommodating as possible, even personalizing the trip based on our preference (spending more time at one place vs others). I think the only thing that could be improved is the time we spent at panjachel. we went through four different cultural learning/experiences (weaving, chocolate making, honey, and coffee making). these could have been made a bit better or scrapped completely. The demonstrations were very rushed it was more of an opportunity for us to shop, we probably could have done that on our own if we got the time to explore the island a bit more. Overall an excellent day trip! :)

          Amazing Way to Visit Tikal
          From booking until the end, this trip was absolutely wonderful! The company was very communicative so that we knew exactly what to expect. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Tikal as well as the history of the people. We saw coatli, crocodile, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, and a variety of birds. The included lunch was delicious and felt like a great reward after all that hiking! The only suggestion I have for improvement is to provide more details about the pick up from the airport, although when we asked questions the company was immediately responsive in giving us answers. Absolutely would recommend!

          7-Day Tour of Guatemala and Copan with Guatemalan Adventures - Our Impressions
          I and my sister want to thank Guatemalan Adventures and Lorenn Hernández in particular for the well-organized and interesting tour of Guatemala and Copan (7 days/6 nights). We travelled with this tour agency in March 2024. We are glad that we chose Guatemalan Adventures as our tour agency when we decided to go to this country. And we are especially happy that Lorenn Hernández was our coordinator of the tour. She is a real professional! To start with, Lorenn helped us to make an itinerary of the tour, paying attention to all our requests and adapting the program to our needs. She is very flexible and helpful. When we arrived, everything was perfectly organized and went on rather smoothly. We felt safe and under their protection and care all the time. We appreciate their quick responses to all our questions on the way and efficient solutions to unexpected minor problems. All the hotels were good, especially in Guatemala City, Copan and Antigua. All the guides were also great - helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. The museums were excellent. We visited the museum in Copan (it is a must while visiting Copan ruins, as it adds a lot to the site – the museum is a gem in this collection). We also visited Popul Vuh museum and Archaeological museum in Guatemala City. Although both these museums are devoted to archaeology, they are quite different and at the same time they are both very interesting. Besides, Archaeological museum is now free of charge. We will definitely recommend this tour agency to anyone who wants to visit Guatemala.

          Best time!
          Our guide was Davis! He was absolutely amazing! It was a long drive from the city to the lake but he always reminded us that he will gladly stop for restroom and food breaks. He knew a lot about the history and volcanos. He gave us plenty of time to explore throughout the whole trip. He was super friendly and knowledgeable. 10/10

          Great time on lake Atitalan
          The views were amazing. Eduardo Lee and his father were our guides. They were great, made the trip very safe and transportation in the vehicle and boat were awesome. Highly recommended to use these two. We also stopped at two local restaurants they suggested for breakfast and lunch along the way along with many cultural stop in San Juan. Thanks again

        This was an amazing experience for the entire family. We traveled with two boys ages 9 and 11 years old, Grandma and Grandpa and there was something for everyone to enjoy. The travel guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and went above and beyond in accommodating our needs. The guided translated everything twice both in English and Spanish for my parents. Eva the reception at Guatemala Adventures set up an amazing itinerary for us filled with adventures and some relaxing time. I will definitely be traveling to Guatemala again in the next year or so and will definitely be using Guatemala Adventures to set up my trip. Amazing experience!!!! We will be using Guatemala Adventure again!!

        Pre-arranged solo trip through Guatemala. After talking to several agencies I finally selected Guatemalan Adventure. Their representative Marcia Ponce was highly responsive and flexible with regards to my own ideas. Pricing was broadly in line with other local agencies.
        Tour included the following highlights: Antigua, Volcan Pacaya, Chichicastenango, Lake Atitlan, Copan/Honduras, Quirigua, Rio Dulce and - a must - Tikal and Yaxha. (Note: I separately arranged a 2-day group climb of Volcan Acatenango - highly recommended)
        For most of the trip I had the same guide and driver: Mirko,who is a good/safe driver, a guide with comprehensive knowledge and last but not least a person with whom travelling is fun. For some tours such as Pacaya and Tikal I joined groups.
        Hotel selection - I opted for "standard" rather than "deluxe"- was good up to excellent, almost all hotels had good location, atmosphere (Don Rodrigo, Antigua!) and all the things a traveller needs.
        Arrangements were well organised and on time, there was room for spontaneous flexiblity (ie. visit of local sights which were not on the itinerary).
        I enjoyed this trip very much and can recommend Guatemalan Adventure.
