Enjoy a wonderful walking and tuk-tuk ride through Antigua Guatemala!
Not enough time to visit Antigua? Want to have a taste of its flavour? Looking for a real local experience? Then this sightseeing tour perfectly fits your needs! Tuk-tuk is a safe, fast and exciting way to explore Antigua Guatemala's highlights but also to experience a ride in the Guatemalan way. This tour combines a tuk-tuk ride to get to the farthest places as Cerro de la Cruz, while walking along the main street as is the so called Arch Street (Calle del Arco) to finally reach the heart of this town, the Central Park, to take a photo with the Mermaid's Fountain (Fuente de las Sirenas) or in front of the City Hall, Capitanes Generales Royal Palace and other colonial buildings. We'll finish
Some time during the walking, we'll interrupt the talk about colonial history, architecture and society, to make stops in specific places so you can taste and smell the local food as well as the Antigua Region's coffee. All of this put together makes a great time in Antigua!
