Great overview of the town. Much to see! It was an easy pace and packed with information. This was a jumping off tour to go explore on our own the next day. GREAT!!

Overpriced. From my experience, Grey Line is just a middle-man between you and the local guide. They offer to collect you from the hotel, but dont tell you that is from most hotels. I had to made last minute arragements to go to the hotel. The first part of the tour is inside Antigua and my guide did know a lot about histiry, culture and local customs. But the second part, the one that comes after lunch, is aoutside Antigua and is montly to visit farms and factories that expect to sell you sometime. Not worth it and way overpriced. My reco: go to the central plaza and pick a local guide.
