      Iximche
      Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
      you spend the day learning about the ancient Maya people, their history and culture but you'll also tour the mystical Iximche ruins, the last capital city of the Mayas.

      Great Tour With Erwin!
      Great tour, very informative. It is definitely a tour for people who are looking to get a lot of the history of Antigua and Guatemala. Erwin is very knowledgeable and passionate about his adopted city of Antigua. The tour is a full 3 hrs long so wear comfortable shoes - but well worth it!

      Walk, talk, and explore Antigua
      We had an amazing time exploring Antigua with Erwin. He is extremely passionate and engaging, making the history of Antigua come to life. Erwin took the time to answer all our questions and even stayed with us longer to appreciate local artwork, visit the Jade Museum, and enjoy coffee from a local shop. His excellent English skills were a bonus. Additionally, he provided us with a list of must-visit places in the area. We highly recommend this tour upon arriving in Antigua.

      History of Antigua
      Erwin was a thoughtful and intelligent tour guide. He provided a clear picture of the history of Guatemala and specifically Antigua. We learned so much. We really appreciated his recommendation for a local lunch spot. The food was wonderful! Thanks Erwin, for a job well done!

      Phenomenal tour, guide is fantastic
      I have been on many walking tours in different parts of the world, and Antigua is a perfect place for one. Its rich with history and that history is densely packed, so the walk is perfect. Erwin is an exceptional guide, I was able to ask a lot of questions and he had great insight into each one. He made it super super fun.

      Not recommended
      We expected a city tour to give us relevant information about the history, architecture and insights into the city. None of this was the case. A clear route is given at the time of booking, which Erwin did not stick to. The entrance fees for sights listed in the tour fees are obsolete, as we would not have had to pay any fees for the places the guide took us to. An absolute waste of time and money.

      Once in a Lifetime amazing hike up Acatenango and Fuego!
      The overnight hike up Acatenango was incredible! We had the most wonderful guides, Mynor and Saul! They were very encouraging and helpful, and we added the night hike up Volcán Fuego which was an experience not to miss. The lava explosions were beautiful and powerful, and it was wonderful to have such an up close experience. My husband and I would recommend Saul and Mynor as guides to anyone coming to Guatemala. They are the kindest people, work hard, and ensure everyone’s comfort and safety! “Vamos Ale!” Eric & Jessi

      Enjoyable experience for the whole family.
      This was such a fun experience. It went so smoothly - our driver was extremely punctual and waited for us while we hiked. Our guide was so kind and knowledgeable about the volcano and surrounding areas. He gave us a lot of options in terms of the pace and length of our hike and continually checked in with us to make sure we were getting the best experience possible. Definitely a manageable hike and lots of options to help make it easier if needed.

      Learn from knowledge
      Our guide was excellent. We had no clue the flower festival was happening, but we made the best of the tour around the crowds of people. We learned so much! Highly recommended.

      Very knowledgeable guide and great tour
      Erwin, our guide, was amazing! He answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable about Antigua's history and architecture. He brought us to many places throughout the city that we hadn't noticed yet, despite already having walked around for a day.
