I would suggest you cut one day off the trip. There is not enough to do in . I I just came home from an 8 day tour with your company. We went to Chichicastanaga, Lake Atitlan, villages, then back to antigua. My guide was Elisio hernandez Avalia. He was a great guide. He talked with me about what I liked to do and didn't want to do and tailored the tour just to me. I wanted to see weaving and we went two two villages. I wanted to know about contemporary Mayan life and he took me places and got a mayan Tuk tuk driver to introduce us to people. He was great about finding the right places to take me every day. I enjoyed talking with him. He is very knowledgeable about the culture. I asked a lot of questions and appreciated his thoughts on things. Thank you and him for a great tour.
This trip was incredible. Thanks much to Adventure Life and the local Guatemalan guides, drivers, hotels, and all. Itinerary and organization went off without a hitch. Every place we landed there was a driver and/or guide ready and waiting to whisk us off to the next destination. Each tour day a guide was ready promptly to take us on his trip. The guides themselves were all extremely pleasant, spoke great English, and were very patient and knowledgeable. We learned a LOT about Guatemala's culture, history, politics, and its people. The hotels went beyond our expectations - each one more beautiful in its own way than the rest. All accommodations had incredible architecture, furnishings, gardens, location, food - really, they were great. And the itinerary itself was a perfect mix of Guatemala - from the Unesco preserved Antigua with its heavy Spanish influence, to all the stops along the way to Lake Atitlan and all of its Mayan influence, to the ruins of Tikal. I will highly recommend Adventure Life to friends.
Our guide, Esteban, was wonderful. He was professional, attentive and fun. He ensured that we had a great trip - whether it was large things or small details. I couldn't say enough good things about him. The was the best guide I have had in all my years of traveling!
Our guide, Esteban, was the best in country guide I've ever had. Magnetic personality. Informative. Quick to learn what appealed to us. For instance, he arranged for us to have a short ride in a chicken bus without our giving him any hint that we would enjoy it. He made sure that our interest in photography was catered to. He was amazingly attentive. He would make sure the restaurant door was closed if we were cold. Most of all, he was so much fun to travel with. The itinerary was perfect for us with almost daily experiences with colorful markets. I am really grateful that you came up with such a great trip in such a short time.
Our guide, Esteban, was wonderful. He was professional, attentive and fun. He did everything to give us a great trip. I have traveled around the world, and Esteban is the best guide that I have had! I would recommend him to anyone going to Guatemala.
Guides were excellent. We saw so much and they went out of there way to show us extra things in which we had expressed an interest. Our Pretrip organization was easy and efficient.
