This tour includes round-trip transportation from your Antigua hotel.
Initially I was skeptical about this tour as my driver was late picking me up from Antigua. He did not speak any English, so I trusted that the tour was valid as he knew where to pick me up. While on the bus, I spoke to a few women who indicated that they were headed to Mexico. I was initially alarmed as I was going to Lake Atitlan. One of the women offered to translate for me to the driver. He indicated that I would be dropped off, picked up by a taxi, and then taken to my guide. Once I knew this, I was fine. However, I did wish these details would have been explained ahead of time. I eventually connected with my guide who was AWESOME. He was so kind, so smart, just great. I was the only one on the tour that day and had a wonderful experience touring the various villages with him. It was a great tour and truly worthwhile. It definitely superseded my initial concerns.
