Beautiful once in a lifetime experience
Matt_C, Aug 2023
This was the best Viator experience I have ever booked. My wife and I travel all over and always use viator. This was easily the most amazing experience. The breakfast was delicious! The boat ride to 3 different Mayan towns was amazing. Each town is colorful and full of beauty. I highly recommend!!!!
Too much for too little
Baha_I, Apr 2023
Looking back, the trip would have been significantly cheaper if done without the tour and much more time to explore the few places visited. About 5 hours driving to and from Antigua, sitting at breakfast nearly 1 hour, and lunch for an hour left us with barely any time in any town. While the guides were nice, definitely better if you do a self tour or if they slash the price but half.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for your comments. The price of the tour is good since it includes private round-trip transportation. Breakfast is included and lunch time can be used to explore the town on your own. We will use your feedback to improve the experience for future travelers.
Picked up late and very regimented
kristin_s, Mar 2023
We signed up for a Private Tour thinking it would just be our family. We had private transportation from Antigua but then were in a group of 16 mostly Spanish speakers. The guide did each little talk in Spanish then English but we weren't able to bond with others due to the language barrier. The guide didn't share a ton of information and the tour was very regimented with very little free time. One of the reasons we opted for what we thought was a private tour was to move at our own pace and so the kids felt comfortable asking questions. The tour said it would pick us up at 5:30am but the driver arrived at 6:10am (the driver was great and was told to get us at 6) but sadly, we waited for 40 minutes outside 5:30-6:10am.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear Kristin, I'm sorry for the inconvenience with the tour. The departure times are in the tour description: The tour starts at 530am from Guatemala City and 6am from Antigua Guatemala. We also sent you a message confirming that the departure was at 6am. Regarding the inclusions, they are in the tour description as well: The tour includes: Group boat transfers, Admission fees, Private transportation, Group Guide and Breakfast. For groups over 10 people we use 2 guides, one in English and the other in Spanish. I hope I have clarified the doubts. See you on a next visit to Guatemala.

It was a wonderful tour of Lake Atitlan. Ask for Joel, he's great and really knowledgeable. My family and I had a blast and would like to do it again.
The tour operator Luis and Elena were fantastic, I will recommend it to my friends and colleagues

Seeing the mountains and different volcanoes, the boat ride was a great experience. The different culture with their dress and multi colors

You should book this tour you will enjoy! We started up with a punctual pick up in our hotel by driver Aldo. Aldo is nice, respectful and has lots of information, we truly enjoyed are way to the lake. When we arrived our guide, Juan, was also welcoming, nice and informative. He also takes awesome pictures! Se had an awesome time no doubt.

Thank you Dayana. Our entire team will be happy to take you to explore Guatemala in a unique way.
El Tour está bueno pero no era privado
LuisFernando_F, May 2023
El Tour está muy bueno, las vistas de Lago Atitlan con sus volcanes son fantásticas. La compañía que nos dió el servicio de traslado fue increíble. El chofer del vehículo se portó genial y nos hizo pasar el traslado agradable. Lo que no estuvimos de acuerdo es que el tour en los pueblos y traslado en lancha no era privado. Necesitan especificar que sólo el traslado es privado pero todo el tour es colectivo. Se siente como un engaño y eso si nos molesta.
Response from Host, May 2023
El tour incluye: Traslados en barco en grupo, Paseo en tuc tuc, Cuotas de admisión, Transporte privado, Guía en grupo y Desayuno. Debido a que es un viaje largo el transporte privado es muy cómodo y hacemos paradas en el camino. Es importante que revisen toda la información antes de reservar y ante cualquier duda favor escribirnos. Estamos para servirles!
El tour ha sido una gran...
