Our tour was quite excellent. The guide went over and beyond his job and was so very knowledgeable and interesting. We were in Antigua with a guided tour but chose to book this independently. It compared very favourably with the tour our fellow travelers had but had additional stops and points of interest that we really appreciated.
Edwin has his own company, he offers other trips and is very good indeed. Great enthusiasm and historical detail. Strongly recommend Edwin and admire his energy and drive in setting up his business. He has great hopes and ideas for the future to support local people.
If you want to learn about the culture and history of Antigua de Guatemala, you need to take this tour. Edwin was exceptional. We had to cut our tour short and Edwin shares and made sure we understood the history of Antigua. So much to see!
Erwin was great, his English was excellent and he knew so much about Antigua and answered all our questions. Very detailed. We stopped for lunch at an authentic and affordable place, which was great. Patient with our photos and well worth the trip.

We had a great time on our group tour with Valerie. She and her partner did a really good job of dealing with our young children, including bathroom breaks and finding us water and snacks when needed. It started to rain during our tour, and we were able to stop until it lessened without feeling like it negatively impacted things. Valerie is a wealth of information regarding many things to do and places to eat in Antigua. I highly recommend this friendly outfit!

The hike between Jaibalito and Tzununa was very nice, not too hard. Then the cycling from Tzununa and San Pedro was TOUGH. Lots of steep hills on uneven dirt roads, under the sun. Quite challenging. The tour of the different craft shops was very interesting (especially the chocolate one obviously). The wind was too strong (as often during the afternoon) when we got to San Pedro so I couldn't do kayaking. Needless to say you get great views of the Lake, but few cycling make it difficult to stop for photos.
