          Great Time
          I had a very amazing time with my tour guide Esteban Calvillo. I sighed up for the 8 hour day trip. Esteban took me to the Kaminaljuyu and Iximche’ Mayans ruins. Esteban is a Great tour guide. Very smart and knowledgeable. He knows so much about the Ancient Mayans history. I highly recommend booking a trip with him.

          Bespoke City Tour
          I asked for a bespoke tour, as I couldn't find what I was looking for, and it wasn't a problem. My guide Esteban was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. We had to make a last minute change of plan and went to see Kaminaljuyu, which was fabulous, I didn't think I would have the chance to see it, and the weather was perfect. I highly recommend it, it really does help to have a local native who knows the roads, the history and the passion to deliver a great day.

          What an AWESOME day!
          First I want to express how lovely our tour guide, Pamella, was to be around and learn from. She made the experience well worth the price. Pamella was on time and the vehicle was immaculate. We went to a fantastic lookout point which had an amazing view of Antigua. Pamella was knowledgeable and shared great information about the town, the customs, and the people. I’ve been to Antigua before, but I saw many things that were missed on other tours I’ve taken. Time at the monasteries blew me away. I had no idea how they lived or the history. We had a chance to walk on the roof of Iglesia Merced. We stopped at several hidden restaurants and bakeries we would’ve otherwise missed had we been on our own. We also enjoyed the thorough tour of Guatemala City which gets a bad rap it no longer deserves. The visit through the main shopping area and the city market were my absolute favorite. This tour was about 8 hours and the time went by fast. Don’t hesitate to book this tour. You won’t be sorry you did. Happy Travels ☺️

          A must do when traveling to Guatemala!!
          This was an amazing experience. I saw a lot of landmarks and the tour was very informative. I wish there was more time for shopping but overall, I would highly recommend this tour when traveling to Guatemala.

          Nice historical tour!
          My husband and I really enjoyed the private tour of Guatemala City and Antigua with Esteban Calvillo. We really appreciated his love of the Mayan culture. He took us to some amazing viewpoints and explained in detail the history of Guatemala, food, and culture. We highly recommend this tour!

          If you are visiting Guatemala use this professional guide service! Highly recommended!
          Overall I highly recommend this company for a tour of you are visiting Guatemala. My wife and I had a private tour with Esteban Calvillo. This guide was very professional! He arrived on time and explained the Mayan history as we drove to Guatemala City. Our first stop was the Mayan ruins. Esteban has a passion for the Mayan history and gave us details as we observed several ruins within a historical site. We also observed Mayan ceremonies that were taking place onsite. Thereafter we went to the city and he gave us a personal tour of the governmental areas, shopping areas, and churches. Thereafter, we had an excellent Gautemalan lunch and headed back into Antigua. There we visited several historical churches, a convent, and the area view of Antigua with the mountains and volcano that can be observed from this point. Overall this was an extremely well designed tour and would recommend this to anyone visiting Guatemala.

          A Phenomenal Tour Experience
          Pamella Lopez was a phenomenal tour guide. Her passion and her love for her country and the sharing of information and her knowledge made me feel immersed into the history of the Guatemalan culture. This was exciting, fun, and she made every minute amazing. Everything was phenomenal!

          Brilliant day out!
          We had the best time on this tour, it wasn’t a sunset tour as we imagined & there is no longer active Lava but still brilliant. We first went to Pacaya and hiked with a local guide where at the top we had freshly cooked pizza! We then returned to the base and went into Guatemala City for a walk around the historic centre!

          Awesome tour and a lovely tour guide!
          If you are pressed for time, private tour of both Guatemala City and Antigua is a way to go! It was so lovely to learn about the history of both, do some shopping and create wonderful memories. Quick tip: ask your tour guide to start early due to traffic in the morning and also possibly of rain in the evening. My tour started at 9:30 am and it was late because we hit some heavy traffic on our way to Antigua and also it started to rain after our late lunch in Guatemala City

          Great Intro to Guatemala City
          We had a terrific overview tour of Guatemala City. Pamella was our guide and she was excellent in providing historical information, information about the government and current day trends and practices. The vehicle was lovely and we felt very safe. We got a very good taste of the city. Guatemala is a beautiful place with fantastic people. I highly recommend a tour with Native Tours and Pamella.

          Worth the money
          This trip cost more than the others but was worth it. A private tour and a good English-speaking guide.

          Personal Driver
          Edwardo was fantastic and it was my first day in Guatemala City. English speaking and considerate, he escorted me to the market, ate lunch, visited the Basilica and helped me exchange money. I explained what I was interested in and he took me to a Mayan Ruin, where I also got to observe locals conducting a Mayan Fire Ritual. This was so interesting to me and I feel he went over and above to help me understand the culture.

          Amazing experience!
          We had a great evening with Esteban. He was very informative about the city and the culture. He made the trek up to the volcano interesting with stories from our local guide. Once we made it to the top our dinner was perfect. Would definitely recommend this tour!

          One of Central America's Loveliest Capitals
          Terrific tour of this often passed over city. I was very pleased with the private tour that Esteban directed. He knowns Guatemala's history very well, highlighting all of the architectural gems that I wanted to see. If you are not comfortable touring Central America's largest city alone or for the first time, I would highly recommend a tour with Esteban. ¡Muchas gracias!

        Our tour guide Pamela was truly amazing. There is a lot to see in Guatemala City and it’s often passed up to see other great tourist destinations in Guatemala

        There is a lot of fantastic history to the country, and its people, who are among the friendliest we’ve encountered in all of our traveling
