I was supposed to be picked up in my hotel in Guatemala city by 8:30 AM but nobody came. After several phone calls they sent a taxi at 10:45 AM to take me to Antigua where I was supposed to have joined the tour group. I reached Antigua around noon and was taken to another travel agency Sunrise. A guide was assigned to me and he walked me through Antigua but for lack of time he could not show me all the sights. I returned to the agency at 3 PM because the tour bus was supposed to pick me up for my return journey. Again, I had to wait and ultimately, around 3:45 PM a car picked me up and dropped me back to my hotel in Guatemala City.
Excellent tour - my guide Erwin was full of energy, easy to talk with and enjoyed sharing the sites and information about this small colonial gem. This is what I call a living historical site - amongst the ruins people are attending school, using the administration and court house buildings and doing their daily activities. Make sure you see the view of the city on the north side with the volcanos and the old church that is now a hotel.
