Marlon was Fantastic!
Zetah_Y, Feb 2023
I had a wonderful experience driving from GUA to Panajachel. Byron was very helpful when I was having issues getting to the airport but my trip was saved with Marlon. He was kind, respectful, charismatic, and an entertaining driver. He was very nice, helpful and did everything to make sure I made it to my destination safely. As a solo traveler, Marlon made me feel safe and I'm so thankful he was patient and understanding with me when I was having issues arriving to the airport. Make sure you ask for Marlon!
Fantastic service
Leyla_P, Feb 2023
Cannot recommend this enough for transport around Guatemala. Osmond was our driver for both ways (to and from the airport to Lake Atitlan) and he was great. He provided us history and other info through the somewhat long drive and was lovely. They are very communicative, always responsive and kept an eye on our flight which had some delays. We will definitely hire them again for future trips.
Clean vehicle, great driver

Andres was a great driver! Clean vehicle and he made sure to ask if we needed to stop at any point for bathrooms or food breaks.
Great experience

Sydney_D, June 2022
We used this shuttle company for 3 different transfers throughout our trip in Guatemala and had a great experience each time. Not only did we feel very safe on all the drives, our drivers were always on time, very friendly, and the vans were comfortable and clean. They were also very accommodating with adding stops and responsive when we messaged them on Viator as well as WhatsApp. I’d highly recommend this company for any private shuttle transfer you need!!!
Great service! Excellent...

Great driver and overall experience
Jason_M, June 2022
Marlo was a fantastic driver. He was very friendly and helpful, and let us stop for lunch on the way. He found our AirBnB and dropped us off at the door. The vehicle was very comfortable as well.

Arrival to Guatemala
AnaMara_F, May 2022
Our driver was driving for us at our arrival. He was really polite and accommodating. Vehicle was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was a long, foggy and safe drive to Panajachel
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your feedback. Yes, the road to the lake normally gets foggy. We´re glad you felt safe with our driver. Enjoy the lake!
Perfect for solo travelers
Jodie_F, May 2022
Best way to travel to Laks Atitlan especially if traveling solo! Friendly & professional driver! Would definitely book again!
Brittni_R, Mar 2022
Marlon was fantastic! He was waiting outside the airport with a sign with my name. He let me know where we could stop to grab food, use the bathroom, etc. We had a great conversation about the history and culture of Guatemala and he gave me directions to get to the dock once we arrived in Panajachel. Would highly recommend booking this service!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you so much for your review. We're glad to read you had a good time with Marlon, even though you had a day with lots of traffic. We wish you´re enjoying the lake
Great ride, even better service!
Jennifer_R, Mar 2022
Great ride with a wonderful driver. Furthermore, my partner left his jacket in the van when we got out at Panajachel, and it was returned to us in Antigua before we left the country! Amazing and above and beyond service!
Response from Host, Mar 2022

Excellent! Seamless and safe!
Pepe_F, Mar 2022
Outstanding experience! Unfortunately, I can't remember our driver's name because it was two weeks ago, but he was AWESOME! He was waiting right outside of the door with our name on a sign, got us quickly to the car and we were off. He was a very safe driver and his English was excellent! Wonderful experience for something that is generally not all that exciting. Very happy with the whole experience. He even stopped for lunch and a second potty break for my daughter with no issues. He was happy do whatever. Thank you for the seamless experience!

Wonderful service!
Devon_W, Feb 2022
We had Marlon, and after being 2 hours late with our flight time, he was waiting for us with a smiling face. Great communication and wonderful energy. Asked if we needed to stop for the bathroom or to grab a coffee, which we took him up on. Will definitely be traveling this way when we inevitably come back! Thank you Marlon!!!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thank you for reviewing us and for sharing such important feedback. We´re so glad that even though the plane was delayed, Marlon made your trip to the lake a nice experience. Enjoy Atitlan!
BEST way to get around!
Paul_K, Feb 2022
Our driver Marlon was EXCELLENT. The whole experience, from start to finish, could not have been better! It’s always cool to be greeted at the airport by someone holding a sign with your name on it 😉 He expertly navigated through various traffic situations, both within the city and outside in more rural settings. My husband and I were both relieved that we did not attempt to rent a car and drive ourselves, as the conditions were quite different from what we’re used to. Marlon was very professional and friendly, and the nice vehicle had plenty of space and was very comfortable. Best of all though, he taught us so much during the drive – about local agriculture, language, food, and culture. He made several recommendations about tours, places to visit, and restaurant to try. Wonderful experience overall. Highly recommend.

Great service!
Gabriel_L, Dec 2021
I got picked up at the GUA airport arrival. Driver with a sign with my name on it, and he took me to an ATM first (my request), which is on the way to the van anyway. However, the ATM didn't work, so he stopped about halfway to the Lake Atitlan area to use the ATM. Unfortunately, that didn't work either. But I appreciate his efforts. It's a solid 3 hours ride from GUA to San Antonio Palopo. The driver is very good and I felt safe the whole time. Highly recommend this service!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
