My husband and I were the only ones booked on this tour, most tour operators would have cancelled, not Viator they sent a car with a driver. We had a great time this man (sorry his name escapes me at the moment) went out of his way to give us such a great day. MY husband is from Guatemala however he learnt a lot about his country on this trip. We will never forget all the kindness shown to us.
We were picked up promptly at 7AM at our hotel in Guatemala City. The van ride took about 3 hours to arrive at Panajachel with a rest stop half way there. We crossed Lake Atitlan and took a tour of Santiago. Santiago is very interesting with the Mayan markets and street vendors selling all types of local handcrafts. Our guide explained the interesting combination of Mayan and Catholic religion. I found this fascinating. We headed back across the lake which was very choppy. (Hint) sit in the back of the boat if you can, I was drenched by the time we got back.
