My 4-person family (w two teenagers) completed the Nine Day Discovery Tour in June 2021. This was an epic experience we will never forget. The entire staff (owner, guides, kitchen & support) during our 9 days with Trek Guatemala was so responsive, professional and kind. The intimate and detailed experiences provided an authenticity that could not have ever been achieved by unbeknownst visitors to Guatemala. This is an impeccable adventure that I highly recommend and personally would love to repeat.

We had such a great experience on our overnight Acatenango hike! It was as difficult as we expected, but our guide (Juan Pedro) and our porters (Jaime and others?) made it comfortable, safe, and fun. In particular, we were pleased with the quality of the gear and food. Matt was responsive during the booking process and even called our hotel to let us know our guide was a few minutes behind so we wouldn’t panic. And seeing Fuego erupt after the sun goes down is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen! Just keep climbing 😬 Highly recommend!

This was the highlight of our 2+ week holiday in Guatemala. If you enjoy hiking this is an absolute must. Leveraging the owners’ 20+ years in the sustainable tourism industry, Trek Guatemala enables tourists to visit remote villages in a sensible and sensitive way, contributing the the local economies and working with the local indigenous communities. The 4 day hike includes ~5 hours of hiking every day, including stretches of 40-60 minutes of steep uphills at a time. This shouldn’t scare you off — if you are moderately in shape, the hikes shouldn’t be a problem. The food is incredible, especially for camping standards: big breakfasts, snacks, big lunch, more snacks, and big dinner. You will not go hungry! The glamping is a nice reward at the end of the day; however, absolutely should not be the main reason for doing the hike. Seeing a side to Guatemala that would be nearly impossible to see otherwise was such a treat. My favourite was the second night, camping in the community with dozens of schoolchildren visiting and joking around with our group. Highly recommend this trek!

My boyfriend and I loved our experience on this 4-day trek! It’s a nice amount of challenging, with some intense steep portions, even with both of us being in good shape. But with frequent stops and never finishing the hiking portion of the day later than 2-2:30, it should be doable for most people in decent shape. But the real highlight of this trek is the cultural experience! You get to travel through farms and small towns, along long-used footpaths, and have the opportunity to interact with these more remote communities. Everyone we met was friendly and warm and welcoming and our small exchanges and time in these towns left a meaningful impression on us. The weaving, coffee tour, and tortilla-making were particularly fun! Matt does a fantastic job making you feel welcome and he’s assembled a thoughtful experience and a stellar team to carry it out. Mario was an enthusiastic and encouraging guide, Doña Ana made delicious meals (especially the pepian stew and the chapín breakfast!), Juan Carlos kept things running smoothly and with a smile, and the local guides were a lot of fun (special shout-out to Francisco!). It’s also a major treat to have hot showers, campfires, and a big tent with a warm bed. Some things to know before you go: the nights are quite chilly so pack nice warm things for the evening and for bed; bring enough local currency to buy snacks and cold drinks from tiendas on route, to buy weaving or coffee, and to tip the staff; brush up (or ask Matt or Mario) about local customs, how to respectfully interact with the Mayan people you meet, and how to say some basic phrases in Spanish and in Kakchiquel; if you’re curious about the flora and fauna you’re seeing, you may be best to bring a book on it - while the guides are excellent and share whatever knowledge they have with you, the focus of this trek is on culture rather than biodiversity and wildlife. Overall, the trek was fun, seamless, and a rare experience. Our trek-mates were also wonderful - we were a bigger group and had a lot of great conversations! If you enjoy the outdoors, being active, eating well, and interacting with other people and cultures with curiosity and respect, I highly recommend this trek!!

First and mainly, this was a fabulous trek - highly recommended! This is the trek to take if you want to get away from the touristy stuff and get a more in-depth look at the traditional way of life in Guatemala . My friend and I really loved the scenery, the ability to walk on indigenous footpaths, and were humbled at how hard the people have to work just to survive. Mario, our Guatemalan guide, was a patient and encouraging, and our camp helpers made sure we were well-taken care of. And we appreciated our fellow trekkers as well – really great folks to be hiking with. Also, this is a very challenging itinerary and will be tough for many hikers, given the intense uphills and downhills - very steep and seemingly relentless - at an altitude that most of us are not accustomed to. My friend and I are avid hikers, hiking double-digit miles without batting an eyelash - at sea level - and really had to scale back our expectations for ourselves on this trek, mostly because we just simply couldn't pull in as much oxygen as our muscles were used to for that amount of work. So, to train for this, find the steepest hill you can access (preferably at least 500' or more) and go straight up and straight down multiple times every day. And, if you're coming in from lower altitudes, at least bring a friend so you have someone to gasp with. Despite the daily physical challenge, this trek is SO WORTH IT - the rewards are many, and you'll have a real sense of accomplishment when you finally get all the way down to Lake Atitlan!
