Really enjoyed our trip, our guide was informative and knowledgeable. The hot springs was a good addition would have liked an extra 30 minutes to relax after the treatment in the sunshine.

Great day trip to see Antigua and relax in the Hot Spring. Enjoyed lunch at the Hot Spring and soaking in the thermal circuit for 1 1/2 hours 4 pools with water temperature ranging from 41 Celsius to 24 C, then 37 C and 31 C before we went back to alternating between 41 C and 24 C. We also had choices of just soaking in any pools we wanted or going for a massage.

This tour was wonderful. Took about 90 minutes to get to Antigua - beautiful old city. Group was small which is exactly why we use Viator. Only 11 of us. the Hot springs were AMAZING. What a way to end the day - beautiful lunch, then right to the springs. They provide you with towels, very clean showers and changing rooms. They springs are at a hotel spa and use water from one of the volcanoes. you can also get a massage if you want to skip the circuit of the spring water. We would go back again.

Excellent guide very mature and knowledgable for 19 years.Beautiful colours and architecture.Actually saw one of the volcanos spurt steam into the air,a first for us but it happens several times a day apparently The trip left us wanting to know more about the country.We vow to come back We.preferred to stay in town than go to hot springs as it involves a lot of driving to get there.Get guide to show you the garages that convert American school buses to new and more colourful local buses.One of our best trips.i

Enjoyed very much. Our Guide was was great. Meal excellent at springs. The springs were fun other than the cold pool. Part of the experience. Only downside is persistence of people selling their wares

A lovely way to spend the day in Guatemala! We walked through Antigua with our guide. The only issue was that the air conditioning on the bus was inadequate and it was a hot day. After our tour of Colonial Antigua, we traveled to a resort where we had a very nice lunch grilled chicken or tamarind chicken or vegetarian pizza which was huge! and a beverage and at that location, we experienced the hot springs. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was a 5 spa where you go from one hot pool to others of varying temperatures and the views were unbelievable!! The staff also provided complementary cold fruit drinks . Nice clean facilities they give you towels - change rooms, showers and they check your belongings for you.

Guatemala is a poor but beautiful country. Antigua is a pretty town surrounded by volcanoes and forests. The local guides Jose and Juan Pablo were the best part of the tour. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Spending tourist dollars here makes you feel like you're doing something good. ONE TIP: If you want a massage at the spa, make an appointment upon arrival. Otherwise, you may miss out on one of the best things about the resort. A 50 minute massage was only 30.

This was a wonderful experience. Antigua has the most beautiful church's and the people are amazing. Loved the walk through town and all the information our guide, Adira, gave, she was very knowledgeable. We were then taken to the Hot Springs which was fabulous and lunch was amazing. Excellent day! The people of Guatemala are wonderful.
