Owner description: We offer a variety of cultural, adventure and ecotourism tour packages in Guatemala with exciting itineraries designed for individual visitors, small and large groups. Due to our many years of experience in the travel industry, we offer competitive prices with no compromise on quality. We are highly recommended by our customers on Trip Advisor an award that recognizes the quality of our services and hard work and dedication of our team. In 2016, we decided to change our company name to Voltan Adventures. Voltan is the Mayan God of the Earth NOT to be confused with Votan (the Mayan God of War). Over the years our company has developed a stellar reputation as one of the best tour operators within Guatemala. Because our base of operations is at Lake Atitlan and our former company name was Tours Atitlan some people would confuse our company with a competitor whose name is similar. We noticed a trend. Numerous tour operators were incorporating the lake into their company name and this was leading to much confusion. Because our company is Mayan owned and locally operated we decided it would be best to embrace our culture and take a more distinctive name where there can be no confusion. So welcome to Voltan Adventures. To read about our company’s past reviews please see our customers Trip Advisor reviews under our old company name: Tours Atitlan, and after your trip with us, please post a review under our new name so we can begin a new tradition!

We travelled to Guatemala for 5 days with Volan adventures, all was organized excellent, driver and guides were awesome, well done and thanks for a great Guatemala experience. I would like to emphasis Noach which guided us at Tikal and added an animal experience to our tour which we weren't expecting.

We travelled in Guatemala for 12 days with Voltan adventures. Everything was excellent, starting from the first email correspondence and "tailoring" our trip, the various places we visited, our excellent guide, Domingo, the transportation and everything else. Voltan is a family company, and this is how it feels. We fell in love with Guatemala, and will definitely come back!

We spent 6 weeks in Santa Cruz la Laguna. While there we booked 4 different trips with Voltan and each was a fantastic experience. We worked with 3 different guides and they were each wonderful, showing enthusiasm for their work and teaching us about the culture. They each spoke very good English, but did not mind when I wanted to practice my rudimentary Spanish either.

I was traveling with 2 children, ages 5 and 8 and they easily accommodated this as well. We made personal connections with these people and we miss them!

Our tours included: A Local Experience (making lunch and tortillas with a local family), San Juan Village Tour, Santiago Village Tour and Pico de Cielo Hike with Solola Market tour. Highly recommend each of them.

We loved Voltan Adventures! The company is owned and staffed by a local family, many of whom we met, and all were wonderful. Our family of four booked two tours with them at Lake Atitlan: one a boat tour of the lake with stops in San Juan and Santiago; and the other a significant hike up the mountain behind Santa Cruz La Laguna to a village, with a fun ride down through the interesting scenery of San Jose, Solola and back to Pana. They customized every part of the trips to our specific interests.

Our guide, Isaias, is a young, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable person who speaks perfect English and who could not have been more enjoyable. He introduced us to many authentic experiences that were not “touristy” but were quite genuine, including some remarkable interactions with local citizens made possible by the fact that he is from the area. We really enjoyed being with him. We also liked that he took us to the cooperatives in San Juan that were run by local artisans selling their goods for fair prices, not tourist traps.

Voltan Adventures seems to really care that their clients have a great experience. They tend to your comfort, tailor the tours to your specific interests, and are first-rate professionals and also really nice people. We booked other tours in Guatemala with other agencies and had good experiences, but the Voltan Adventures team really stood out as the best. They conduct tours all over Guatemala and also in Honduras and Nicaragua that we hope to take on a future trip, so they are not just local to the lake.
