Alex was a great guide. He really knows the area and the culture of the Mayans It was a very interesting tour. The driver who picked us up at the hotel was on time. But we were confused about what was going on. We felt like there was no communication about where we were going. The guy who picked us up at the hotel dropped us off in town where we got on another bus that was very crowded. I showed my paper work to the driver and he nodded his head, and motioned for us to get on. We expected to meet our guide, but we didn't meet him until we got up to Sololá. After we met Alex things got much better. Alex also made sure we got on the shuttle bus to take us back to our hotel in Antigua. This bus was also very crowded, which made it uncomfortable.
Definitely a difficult hike but well-worth it. Unique is that the hike very steep, so once you reach the top you feel you're directly on top of the surrounding area. Alex was also a great tour guide.
Great experience, learned a lot about the Mayan culture while making some delicious food. Easy place to find with beautiful views.
My friend and I had the pleasure of having a very private tour with our guide, Sam. He was very nice, insightful, and kept us on schedule. We ended up paddle-boarding from one location, to take a boat to another location to grab lunch. From there we ended up hiking our way back down, probably a 3-5 mile walk depending on the speed the party is able to walk collectively. During the hike, we walked through multiple villages, walked up some heavy hills, hiked down some rocks, and took some very off the beaten path trails!
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes nature, loves to hike, and lives a very active lifestyle.
Very nice, but exhausting Trip. Our guide Samuel was an amazing, nice guy with a nice sense of humor and many anecdotes of the country/place.
Time I spend during the tour was amazing!You will learn about real Mayan culture.Alex is a great person who explain to you everything.You will visit sacred places and you can become a part of it.You will energy and you can have your own ceremony.Go for it ! View is amazing :
Fun tour. Our guide, Alex, was friendly and gave us options. The only downside was the process to get back to Antigua. There is no system. They were asking for vouchers, which is separate from the viator voucher. We didn't have any other voucher. I'm surprised we made it back to Antigua.
We had a wonderful day! My niece and I were staying with a friend in Panajachel and decided we were ready for a lake adventure. Every aspect of this experience went smoothly. We were met at the public launch by Samuel who escorted us by boat to Santa Cruz la Laguna where our kayak adventure would begin. While Samuel readied the kayaks, my niece and I relaxed in the hammocks at Los Elementos Adventure Center admiring the beautiful views of Lake Atitlan. The wind on the lake started to pick up, but we managed to navigate just fine under Samuel's direction--as we kayaked, we hugged the shore and dreamed about living in one of the many beautiful homes we passed along the way. After the kayaking, we hiked back to Los Elementos. On the hike we had sweeping views of the lake, meandered through a quaint village where we stopped for a delicious lunch, and delighted in the variations of flora and fauna along the trail. Samuel was funny, informative, and an absolute delight to have as our guide. Also, the owner of Los Elementos was friendly and welcoming. It was a wonderful day--made very special by Samuel's expert company. I highly recommend this experience!!
Since Guatemala was once the center of the Mayan civilization, my friends and I wanted a unique experience that showed us the Mayan culture. The Solola Market, Panajachel Cloud Forest and Mayan Villages offered that and more. Our tour guide, Alvaro Samuel Botan Sen or Sam is Mayan and took us first to the Solola Market where we were the only foreigners. Sam advised us, since we were obvious stand-out visitors, how to be sensitive regarding photography and interactions. Sam next showed us Mayan Villages along Lake Atitlan where we sampled local life and Mayan markets. We ate typical food at a restaurant along side the scenic lake. As a special feature of the tour, we climbed to a cave, high above the lake, to experience a Mayan ritual conducted by a shaman. The climb requires sensible shoes and a brave heart, but with Sam as the guide, this event was the highlight of our trip. If you seek authenticity and a tour you will always remember, I highly recommend this one and Sam as the guide.
Our tour was booked through the local contact Los Elementos Adventure Center and Day Spa in Antigua.
Absolutely abysmal tour! Our tour guide, Sam, kept trying to talk us into going elsewhere because he didn't want to be there. The tour was over two hours late getting started and no one seemed to know who was supposed to be taking us or where we were to go. The guide didn't speak to us through most of the tour and when he did it was to berate us for not understanding Catholic dogma! He kept telling us he'd rather we'd gone kayaking on the lake! Absolutely awful! Don't go on this tour!
