Antigua excursion
Peter_P, Apr 2023
Antigua is a lively city with lots of history and beautiful plazas. Our guide, Moises, and driver were fabulous and very accommodating to meet our requests. They recommended a fantastic place for lunch which was so lovely and good was delicious. Fantastic driving. We were in good hands and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Great Private Tour.

We booked a tour for 5 people. Irwin, our guide, was waiting for us. It was a great day. Irwin did a fantastic job. Great driver, very safe and helpful. Irwin answered all our questions, shared information about Guatemala, Antigua, etc. It was beautiful day. Irwin was good about telling us what he had planned for the day but also offering to make any adjustments we might request. He is proud of his country while also aware of the challenges that it confronts. We all enjoyed the day. It was our best excursion out of the five that we booked. Irwin answered all our questions. We had a great lunch at a cafe we would never have found on our own. Antigua is a beautiful city. We enjoyed being in a small group. I highly recommend Irwin (MB Guatemala Travel).

We had a private tour of Antigua including a trip to the Carolina Textile company and Jade Museum. Irwin was a very special driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable and proud of his country. He went out of his way to please us . We would hire him again if we come back to Guatemala!

Guide and driver were waiting for us when we got off the ship! They said they needed 4 for the excursion, but there were only the two of us and they still took us! We had a fun day!
