Juan Pablo was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable kind and spoke excellent English. He gave us recommendations on places to eat and let us take our time on our tour. Never felt rushed. The highlight was the central market filled with fruits herbs and souvenirs. Definitely recommend !

We enjoyed a delightful afternoon touring around Guatemala City with Juan Pablo. His knowledge of the city and his enthusiasm was boundless. He was engaging and very informative. We went to see a part of the Berlin Wall that was a gift to the city, as well as visiting two historic churches all while getting a history of the city.We also to a local food/flower market which was quite beautiful and then ended our tour at an artisans market where we were able to shop and browse around for over a half hour. We were picked up at our hotel on time, driven in a very clean, air conditioned van. If you have the time, this is a great way to get both an overview of the history of the city and a chance to get to a few hidden gems that you would not find on your own. Book this, you won't be disappointed .

I had an excellent time with my guide, who told me so much about the history and the culture of Guatemala. I was able to choose in which language the tour was, either of the languages were very easy to understand and we had a lot of fun. I would absolutely recommend it!

Tour was fantastic! Juan Pablo and Luis picked me up at my hotel and took me on a driving/walking tour of many different parts of Guatemala City. Juan Pablo's knowledge of Guatemala's history and geography was exceptional. I felt safe the entire time and it was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to all travellers to Guatemala City.

While there were a couple things that were less than ideal, overall our experience was A and deserves a 5-star rating. For example, the driver was slightly later than expected for our pickup. However, they had to make a stop at a hotel prior to ours, and that could have caused the delay. Second, the driver slipped a couple of times and was speaking Spanish with our bilingual travel companions when we asked to take a bilingual tour. I know enough Spanish to get 75 of what the tour guide was saying, but when you're paying to be presented with information, and you ask for it to be delivered in English, that is the expectation.

Anyway, I loved that the tour was part driving and part doing. By seeing the city via van tour, it was easy to capture a lot of ground in a short period of time. Traveling up and down the Avenue of the Americas was interesting. Our driver had both a political and historical awareness that allowed him to talk about not only the statues of the individuals along the avenue, but also all the political posters that were advertising the candidates running for president in the current election.

My favorite part of the trip was getting out of the van to hear about Palacio Nacional. I wish we could have toured it, but we did get to tour inside the metropolitan cathedral. After our stay in the central park, we drove to and toured the Relief Map.

I thought the Relief Map might be a little boring, based on other reviews I had read, but justified it as a better option than Mercado Central since we had just done that independently as a family the day before. The Map was rather interesting, however, especially given that our tour guide had provided us so much background information on the boundary disputes and inclusion of Belize -- a region some still consider the 23rd department of Guatemala. It was fun to plot on the map all of the places that we had visited that week while in Guatemala.
