Experiencing Antigua was Excellent! Or "excelente" as Carlos often says. :-) After having to delay travel plans from 2020, we were excited to visit Guatemala again after 14 years. However, there was some hesitation given international travel is only now starting to re-start and we were not sure of the COVID situation on the ground there. (few recent reviews given few travelers!) Carlos was so helpful re-assuring us things were good in Guatemala and it was safe. The travel to Fredy's coffee farm & home is truly an educational, hands-on and personal experience. So much different than a staged, group tour. We didn't get to hike Pacaya, but from the stories Carlos shared of others he took, it sounded pretty awesome. Prices were reasonable for transportation and response times were super quick via Whatsapp. We greatly appreciated Carlos' help with any questions and allowed us to experience Antigua in a very special and educated way! Thank you!

We had an amazing time with Carlos during our 6 day visit to Guatemala! It was easy to communicate with him about our needs and he went above and beyond. We used him for all of our transport needs including airport transfers and round trip to Lake Atitlan. Additionally, we did the Antigua Walking Tour one day and the Antigua Village Tour the next. The Antigua Walking Tour was fantastic! It’s such a beautiful city and while you can do it on your own, there is so much we would have missed without Carlos. He has a deep bench of knowledge about the history of the city, plus nice fun nuggets of information too. When we went outside of Antigua to visit four villages, it was also a highlight. So close to Antigua yet very different, with each village wholly different from the next. Both days were fantastic! Carlos also saved the day when I lost my iPhone on the way to Guatemala. Upon picking us up at the airport, he took us to an iPhone store in Guatemala City and then to a data store before heading to the Lake. One of us was also heading to Paris from Guatemala and needed a COVID test. He set it up for us and we conveniently got the test on the way to airport on the day we departed. We will absolutely use Carlos again and are looking forward to it. He offers a fantastic service and will definitely make your trip better. Highly recommend!

We had a day tour with Carlos on our recent Panama Canal cruise on the Carnival Miracle. Carlos met us at the dock and we headed our right away in a comfortable mini bus with 10 of us inside. We visited an authentic Guatemalan village, rode a "Chicken Bus" with the local, toured around Antigua including the local market, picked up a local coffee farmer, Fredy" and visited his co-operative plantation where we were able to pick coffee beans and then went back to his family house where his wife and family showed us how the de-husk the beans, then we roasted them over an open fire and finally ground those beans using a stone and wooden tool. After this Fredy's wife and fmaily served us an authentic Guatemalan lunch as well as coffee and local beer. Collectively, we all agreed that this tour was the highlight of all our port tours. Thank you Carlos for a memorable day, thank you Fredy for your hospitality, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Carlos for anyone looking for a caring,professional tour guide in Guatemala. He was there first thing to pick us up (even with all the additional Covid-19 precautions the port was taking) and had us back to the boat in plenty of time for our departure. Thank you Carlos for a memorable day!

We came to Puerto Quetzal for the day on a cruise ship. We had one of the best days of our trip with Carlos Mijangos. We saw a couple of the local towns and markets, and Carlos bought us fruit to try that we had never seen before. We saw a town that had been wiped out by a volcano. We also went to Antigua, where I think most of the cruise ship passengers head, but Carlos organized the day, so we avoided the biggest crowds. Another highlight was riding the local chicken bus, and learning how each bus is its own business. We spent the afternoon at Fredy Gonzalez's coffee farm. We had a great lunch there and learned all about their coffee operation. We picked the coffee, removed the husks, roasted, ground, and drank the coffee. We also learned about how they formed a co-op to process the coffee themselves and get a better price for it. We felt totally safe our entire time in Guatemala. I highly recommend Carlos Mijangos.

We had the best weekend ever thanks to Carlos! Before the trip, Carlos was quick to respond to emails; we told him what we were interested in, and he designed the perfect weekend getaway for our trip to Antigua including airport transfers, a volcano hike, a visit to a local coffee farm, a traditional lunch with a local family, and a walking tour of the city. During the trip, he did everything he could to make sure we had a great time. We came as clients, and left as friends! I can’t wait to go back and explore more of the region with Carlos!
