Excellent guide, stunning views, wonderful food, and a great overview of the history and culture. The trip was well rounded, the staff were professional and everything went smoothly. No complaints whatsoever! Book it you won’t regret it.

You can't leave Guatemala without this tour!
evan_a, Jun 2022
My driver Osmen was on time and very informative the whole trip. He had a great recommendation for a great breakfast on our way to the lake. Our tour guide Juan Diego was very knowledgeable about the different Mayan villages and the history of Guatemala. He had a great textile class for us setup in the Village. He spoke at least three different languages and was really able to give us a lifetime experience.

Wow , what a way to end our trip! This was absolutely THE BEST tour we did. Our driver Marlon, and our tour guide Elena were very knowledgeable. We learned a lot. everything ran on time from pick up, to the tour times and the drive back to the hotel. While you are at each stop, you stop at several mini tours, you are not just walking around aimlessly. If you get the chance, book this tour!
Awesome experience, would recommend
Andrea_C, Jun 2022
Our tour guide Nicholas was awesome! We did mini tours for chocolate, cotton, and coffee production. San Juan is definitely the best!
IrisEscobar_M, Jun 2022
It was an excellent experience. We had a Maya guide who explained us her culture. We visited two Maya cooperatives, the textile and the honey production.
Great day trip for adults.
Logan_D, Jun 2022
About a 2 hour drive (with a stop for breakfast) and then a really awesome tour exploring the 3 towns. Each one is different (San Juan was my favourite!) Our guide, Juan Diego, was awesome - he definitely showed us some extra out-of-the-way spots!

A memorable mother/daughter day full of colors and flavors
Maria_G, Jun 2022
Our trip was like the description yet so much more! Rudolfo, our driver, was courteous and careful. We then met Juan, our private guide who tailored the day to our interests, appetites and pace. We skipped breakfast out of fear of sea sickness, but needn’t have worried. The captain of Azucena brought us safely to shore at San Juan. We were rewarded with coffee and a description of its production. There was an impromptu concert on the street by preschoolers in their native dress. Next, we learned about chocolate from Karla and traditional weaving and dyeing from Irma. We headed back to the Azucena for a 15 minute boat trip to Santiago. At lunch, my daughter had pepín - a hearty chicken stew with pumpkin seeds. After this feast of colors, sounds, texture and taste, there was still more to stir our hearts and minds. We visited the church of Santiago at Atitlan. Juan shared the history and suffering of Guatemala’s more than 30 year civil war. Thank you, Juan, your conviction and passion were a reminder of why we were traveling in the first place. You helped my daughter and me connect with one another, with Mayan culture, Guatemala as a countryand humanity’s struggle to persevere.

Wonderful Trip!
Claudia_G, May 2022
Saul was a great and careful driver, he was very kind and stopped at a high view point of the lake to take great pictures! The local guide, Helena, was great as well. She was incredibly knowledgeable and so patient with our questions. Would 10000% recommend!!

Thank you so much for your review and for the feedback. We´re so glad to know you had a great time with our team at the lake!
It was fun until it wasn’t
sara_m, May 2022
The experience was going fine until our driver ran over a dog on the street. I’m beyond upset and traumatized from this. It’s overshadowing the previous parts of the day.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thanks for your review. We are dog lovers too. We´re very sorry for this incident. We definitely understand how you feel. Sadly, there are hundreds of street dogs all over the villages of our country. This situation has become a problem on our highways and streets, putting at risk our passenger´s safety and of course the lives of all these lovely animals. Nevertheless, this is the first time that happens to us. I know the way Rodolfo, your driver, treats his dog. He loves animals as well. That I can assure you I personally revised the video and in this particular case, Rodolfo couldn't see the dog from his angle. He was paying attention to another dog crossing the street and a car coming in his direction. Once again we´re tremendously sorry for what happened. We´re glad the tour itself was a good adventure.
Lovely time at Lake Atitlan! Highly recommend
Emily_R, Apr 2022
We had an incredible time on this tour with our wonderful guide Juan Diego! Driver was great and picked us up promptly at 6am in Antigua. He gave us the option of stopping for breakfast on the way or at the lake. We chose the lake and had a beautiful view. We then met up with our guide and had a private tour and boat! Visited 3 beautiful villages and learned a ton. Saw incredible demonstrations of weaving, chocolate and coffee making. Got some great (and colourful) photos! Beautiful day on the lake and such lovely views of the volcanos. Thank you everyone who made this tour amazing! Well worth it.
Excellent tour, and personalised service
Kasey_L, Mar 2022
We had an amazing experience around Lake Atitlan! Driver picked us up at 6am promptly, in a clean, and spacious van. We stopped for breakfast at a lovely restaurant in the mountains before arriving at Late Atitlan, where our tour guide met us. We visited three different towns around the lake, aside from strolling around the town, we were shown a coffee plantation, insight into chocolate making and also Mayan weaving, which was amazing! Our guide was great and very knowledgable, and I appreciate that he felt more like a friend showing us around (we even had lunch together!) which made the experience feel much more intimate. Not once were we ushered to the next stop, we took our time and nothing was too much trouble.

Fantastic Guide!!
Janelle_B, Feb 2022
The tour guide gave us a great experience! He took us to three Mayan villages, took us to a local place to lunch, and gave us the history of the villages. 10/10 highly recommend. He also took into account what we wanted to see, and was flexible.

Great Introduction Tour
Chris_K, Feb 2022
Beautiful lake & nice tour guide with fun activities, such as the women’s coop & chocolate tour. I’d love to revisit the lake & spend a few days next time exploring more, but this tour gave a great introduction, so I highly recommend it.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thanks for reviewing us and for sharing your feedback. This is definitely useful information for future travelers. We´re glad you enjoyed the lake. Regards!
Lake Atitlian Tour
elaine_L, Sep 2021
This by far was one of the best tours I didvqhile I was in Antigua. First the communication with the operator was active and helpful. The driver was very engaging and patient. When I got to Panaachel I meet with mybtour guide . He was awesome we went to three villages in one day . I was totally emerse in the cultures from every village. At the end of the day he took me to a great restaurant in Santiago for lunch the food was great. Overall great experience. You should definitely choose this tour. You get to see alot in one day. I will definitely book with the operator again when next in Antigua and refer my friends when they visit

Ein schöner Tag von Antigua nach Atitlan
Nelli_A, Apr 2022
Pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt in Antigua, grosses komfortables Auto gut für lange Leute, super freundlicher Fahrer, wir haben uns gut unterhalten können. In Panajachel wartete ein Privatmotorboot mit sehr bequemen Sitze und Dach für Schatten, schöne Fahrt auf dem See mit Wind und tollem Blick auf die Vulkane. Auch der guide sehr nett und gut englisch sprechend, wir haben drei Orte besucht, es hatballes Spass gemacht, ohne Eile nach unserem Tempo, danke
Tour completamente privado de 1 dia increíble
EDUARDO_L, Aug 2021
La excursión fue totalmente privada, desde el traslado en coche hasta el paseo en lancha por los 3 pueblos del lago. Nuestro conductor Rodolfo nos llevo por una ruta secundaria y fue maravilloso. Nuestro guia Antonio era encantador y conocia perfectamente la historia de los pueblos y nos llevo a lugares locales. 100% recomendable
Response from Host, Sep 2021

Lo mejor del Lago Aitlan
Jose_G, May 2021
Complacido y satisfecho con el tour, desde la recogida en mi hospedaje hasta finalizar el mimo.. El Chófer Sr Rodolfo te informa de la historia de los pueblos por donde va transitando, en el transcurso del viaje hasta Atitlan. El paseo en bote espectacular,todo una aventura, El guía Sr Antonio y la persona que maneja el bote el Sr Ramiro exelentes también, te van explicando todo detalladamente. Recomiendo este tour al 100%, en un día puedes recorrer los 3 pueblos coloridos e históricos alrededor del lago Aitlan, cabe destacar que reserve el tour un día antes, y el servicio al cliente fue super excelente, se pusieron en contacto conmigo y me explicaron toda la logística del tour. Gracias!🤗
