Best Lake Atitlan Tour
Pelumi_D, May 2023
Long day but extremely worth it! You get to visit the towns around Lake Atitlan by boat. The guide also gives you free time in each town to explore and do your own thing, if you would like to. The drive to and from the lake are quite long with lots of turns so if you get car sick easily maybe take some gravol beforehand. So glad I booked this experience and would highly recommend!
Tour of Lake Atitlan!

Overall this experience was amazing! My tour guide was knowledgeable and the individuals in the group for very friendly. My least favorite part of the tour was Santiago, personally not much to offer like San Juan and San Pedro.
Great experience

Loved this tour! Had a great time tour guide was awesome and the three towns around the lake were very nice. I was able to learn a lot from the Mayan people and support their families there.

The tour was almost excellent: we got to see three towns and learn about the chocolate making process as well as the dyeing process of creating cotton threads, their dyeing and weaving. We feel pleased with, and thankful for the services of Elena our Mayan guide, who knew about the culture and daily life of the towns surrounding Lago Atitlan, had a friendly and joyful attitude, and spoke Tsutujil, Spanish and English. The downside of the trip was the driver, Martin, who didn't have a friendly attitude, used the phone while driving violating safety measures, and didn't show all the good manners that Guatemalans are known for.
This is a fantastic day in Lake Atitlán.

Fantastic day trip from Antigua. Worth getting up early. Our driver was safe and skilled. Our tour guide, Nicolas (can’t say his Mayan name) was great and knew everything about the lake. Excellent English. Lake Atitlán looks like Switzerland or Lombardy - it’s gorgeous. And it has volcanoes. All three towns we visited were safe and interesting - highly recommend!
Die Bootsfahrt war sehr...

Die Bootsfahrt war sehr schön. Am Besten hat mir das erste Dorf gefallen. Die Farben waren prächtig.
