Guide was very knowledgeable and eventhough we have taken this tour before, we still learned things we did not know.

The tour was overall good. It was short and sweet. Bring some local currency for the markets. I would have liked more time walking outside the van. The 1.5 hours of the tourist are spent in the van.

Juan Pablo knew literally everything about the city and made our experience amazing! We learned so much and had so much fun with him and Mynor! We will definitely recommend those two for anyone who wants to see Guatemala City safely and get the most out of it!

Debería ser más tiempo en paseo cayala o eliminarlo del tour, solo lo llevan a uno y le dicen que si se quiere bajar. No es realmente un tour en esa parte.

Great tour guide. Great driver. Clean comfortable modern vehicle. Given good overview of entire city, its history and landmarks. If I go back I would definitely book either a full day tour, different more specific city tours to go in depth at some of the historic, government and other landmarks. In the end though it's the guide who makes the experience special and our guide did just that.
