This tour was a big disappointment. I have seen the ruins of Mexico including the Sun and Moon pyramids, Palenque, Uxma and Chitza-Itza. Those ruins are fairly well preserved and restored, many with some of the original colorings and reliefs intact. Tikal was ok, but had none of the original colors and reliefs. Our guide there spoke great English but he didn't tell us anything about the traditions and rituals of the Mayan people who lived there. Yaxha was not interesting and Ixhimche wasn't worth going to at all. The only thing I enjoyed was our hotel in Antigua, its proximity to the market place, the boat ride across the lake and the Pacaya Volcano. Our tour guide that we had for the first 4 days was only 50% intelligible. We had to work very hard to understand him, unfortunately. I have taken many trips and have never felt like I wasted my money until now. It just was not worth the cost.
Very interessting to see the local mayan people and their way of live. Same guide as in Copan.
Great guide, great experience, would highly recommend
It was excellent
It's a long drive there but lake was beautiful. Shopping streets in S Tiago Atitlan was real treat - lotsa fun.
Lake Atitlan is beautiful. The surrounding towns are very Mayan and so interesting. I've been to many Latin American countries. Guatemala, with its strong Mayan culture still so intact, I very worth seeing.
