We enjoyed this tour very much. Our tour guide, Celestino was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The bus trip was nice with only 20 guests onboard. The city of Antigua was lined with cobble stone streets and beautiful old churches. A quaint town with a lot of history. We are older and was afraid that a long walking tour might be overwhelming but it wasn’t at all. The jade factory was nice if you like jewelry etc.. Many Street vendors selling their wares which by the way are much less than the shops by the ship. We had a delicious lunch with many options to choose from. We chose the chicken with a green tomato and cilantro sauce which started off with a green salad, then the chicken (whole breast or leg and thigh) with green sauce, rice and vegetables along with freshly made hot corn tortillas. They even let us hand make a tortilla if we wanted too! We would definitely recommend this tour!
Great excursion. We booked this tour before our cruise. Very good value. We enjoyed our guide Juan Pablo. He was knowledgeable and very patient with our group. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant but we were not impressed with the limited menu of two choices for our group. The beet enchiladas were not a big hit. The other choice was much better. I would recommend this tour.
Antigua was A very amazing city but you need a tour guide as it's a1.5 hours from cruise port. Our guide was Willy he did a great job. Explained about the country and showed us a lot of things, Antigua is a very historic city that seems lost in time a lot of things are untouched. There is a lot of poverty here so be prepared to say no thank you as they will not leave you alone. We would use vivator again on a cruise excursion they were great
Awesome tour through the old city, lots of cobblestone streets, a church hundreds of years old, the jade factory was great and of course we bought jewelry, love my jade cross. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the places we visited, rich in history.
Our tour guide Jose was waiting on the pier with a sign showing the names of people on the tour very easy to find him. We had a comfortable, informative ride to Antigua, then a nice walking tour with brief stops for photos. On to the spa for an excellent lunch and time in the thermal pools. Overall, great value and interesting guide. I would recommend.
