Guatemala Tours - Adventure Life Testimonials and Reviews

Belize Explorer

Karen Aimino (Belize Explorer, Mar 2016)

This was an amazing experience. It was worth a lot more than we paid. We were always accompanied by a guide who spoke English and who was very proud to share their culture and country with us. I didn't expect so many life experiences in one trip.

Walter Wei (Belize Explorer, Mar 2016)

Really liked my stay within the Central American jungle, and all the excursions from it! The one free day each at both the jungle lodge and then at the caye, was also very timely for some rest and recuperation, and nice for self-explorations around the local vicinity.

Krista Schnepf (Belize Explorer, Mar 2016)

The trip was fantastic and felt more like two mini-vacations between the jungle and the beach.

Guatemala Easter Festival

Lilla Wise (Guatemala Easter Festival, Mar 2016)

All was wonderful! The San Rafael Hotel was one of the best hotels I have stayed in - and there have been lots!

Lilla Wise (Guatemala Easter Festival, Mar 2016)

The San Rafael Hotel is one of the very best! And this trip was one of my favorites.

Judith Johnson (Guatemala Easter Festival, Mar 2015)

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.

Hamanasi Adventure

Dan Heer (Belize Explorer, Apr 2015)

Hamanasi was great. They really have a nice place with room between it and the other places on the beach. The snorkeling was amazing and for birders we saw about 70 species including a cinnamon hummingbird raising two babies right by our room. The food was extremely good. Be sure and spend time talking to staff. Even the guards have interesting stories to tell and it's a great way to learn about the various cultures of Belize.

Guatemala Explorer

Mary Jennings (Guatemala Explorer, Mar 2016)

Excellent service throughout, accommodations, meals etc. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. Felt safe and well cared for.

Drew Agras (Guatemala Explorer, Jan 2015)

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.

Highland Maya Markets

Lexie Perle (Highland Maya Markets, Nov 2014)

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!

Bill Naftel (Highland Maya Markets, Nov 2014)

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.

Lexie Perle (Highland Maya Markets, Nov 2014)

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.

December 20, 2015 Guatemala Explorer

Ed Lippert (Guatemala Explorer, Mar 2015)

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.
