We had Alex as out tour guide on this trip to the Iximche Mayan Ruins. He is awesome! Alex knows the area very well and understands the culture as he is of Mayan decent. The ruins were beautiful and very well maintained. You can feel the history at this site. Once again, we learned more about the Mayan culture than we ever expected.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Guatemala! Our guide was amazing and shared so much knowledge about these Mayan ruins and current day Mayan culture. We even got to watch a ceremony taking place at the park! I was reluctant to book as I usally do not like guided tours but this was great
