Date: Jan 13/20

Nestor is an excellent guide! He took our group of 8 Canadians to Antigua and a coffee plantation with every consideration of our needs along the way. He was personable and quite knowledgable. Nestor is a personable young man with a wealth of knowledge. He answered all our questions easily and informatively. Our tour was truly a comprehensive experience for our first time in Guatemala. Thank you, Nestor!

Tour: Tajumulco and Acatenango volcano hikes, Tajumulco, San Marcos, Guatemala
Date: Dec 19/19

Went on a 5 day trip in order to hike Vulcan Tajumulco and Vulcan Acatenango and in total Nestor was an awesome tour guide who made the experience unforgettable! Our team had some experience in mountaineering. However, Nestor's understanding of the mountains, volcanoes, and climates in Guatemala is second to none! Nestor has a vast level of historical knowledge and cultural understanding, he coordinated all of the travel and activities for our group, and introduced us to his close Friends and hikers!

Nestor was a wonderful guide during our excursion to Antigua. In addition to describing the important information about Guatemala, he also demonstrated a willingness to share his own opinions about the country, which added so much more to our experience. Nestor made Antigua come alive for us.

Nestor was extremely knowledgeable about his country, its history and politics. He adapted to my companion's physical limitations and adjusted the tour. I highly recommend him as a guide.

We only had one day in Guatemala because of the cruise ship schedule. Nestor made our day so special. He is incredibly knowledgeable about his country. He was patient with our slowest member. His English is outstanding. What a terrific guide!

The Antigua (shore excursion) proved to be a fabulous insight to old Guatemala. Although a little late, through no fault of his own, Nestor met the ship and immediately provided us with bottled water before embarking on what proved to be a wonderful day out. Nestor was most understanding of our physical abilities and engineered the tour to suit. We covered all the architectural & historical sights we had requested on the itinerary and Nestor's fluent English and knowledge of his country added the colour

Tour: #226540, Antigua Guatemala and Guatemala City in 2 days, Nueva Guatemala de la Asunción, Guatemala, Guatemala    view tour
Date: Jun 17/19

Nestor's 2-day tour of Guatemala City and Antigua was excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Guatemala as a country, its Mayan beginnings, and the new and old Guatemala City. The mountain drive to Antigua was both harrowing and beautiful and included small cities along the way. Modern Guatemala City has all the traffic problems of large cities, but also a number of zones, each of which has its own character. From any vantage point, one sees the beautiful volcanoes. Good tour!

My stay in Guatemala City fell was later on a Sunday afternoon when many typical sites were closed. Despite this limitation, Nestor was able to personalize my tour to show me cultural and historical sites, give me a sense of some of the contrasts of the city, and help me to get to know a bit about the different municipal zones. I would highly recommend a tour led by Nestor, especially for how he is able to tailor the experience based on your interests and schedule.

I would highly recommend Nestor and Luis with Twin Transportation to any of my friends traveling to Guatemala City or Antigua. Nestor is very knowledgeable of the history and culture of the area. We spent the day visiting an archeological site, city square and other places around Guatemala City. We felt safe at all times and Nestor and Luis was very accommodating to our needs. Louis was a very safe driver in very hectic traffic.

Fantastic Guatemala City tour. Nestor is one of the best tour guides I have ever come across and I feel very fortunate. His knowledge about anything from history to culture to nature to lifestyle is immense and is he is super willing to share it. Very personable and friendly as well as flexible to go with his customer's wishes and needs. He is a terrific driver and has the ability to drive meanwhile talking about any topic you ask him. He is absolutely reliable and trustworthy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I enjoyed showing you around the city and sharing with you, until next time in Antigua. Take care. Best regards, Nestor

Nestor was a wonderful guide! We ended up stuck in a traffic jam and the experience took way longer than any of us planned but Nestor acted as though he had all the time we wanted and was very patient and accommodating. His English is really good and he stopped to explain different markers along the way. We hiked the volcano with a local guide he hired as well and he was really great and positive. This was a memorable experience for our whole family and we have passed Nestor's name on to many others.

Really enjoyed 2.5 days with Nestor. He listened to our interests and chose places to visit and do accordingly. Although we already had some time on our own in Antigua, he helped fill in the blanks and took us to places we otherwise would not have been able to visit. Chose a great spot to view the annual procession on April 7 with the car parked where we could "escape" the crowds. Given the limited time in Guatemala City, felt he chose wisely to give us a great "introduction". His English is fluent.

Nestor is what everyone hopes a guide will be. His English is flawless. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of sites in Guatemala. He is prompt, courteous, attentive, and helpful. My daughter and I had two tours with Nestor -- Antigua and Chichicastenango -- and we could not have been more pleased with his service.

Date: Mar 18/19

Nestor was fantastic. We did Chichicastenango and Lake Atitlan in one day - ambitious for anyone, but he did a great job both with driving and guiding - 13+ hours in total. He was very knowledgeable about the Mayan traditions, history and culture. He was flexible, picked great spots to focus on, recommended nice restaurants for breakfast and lunch. He was interesting to talk to, upbeat, and despite some difficult driving conditions, remained focused on the driving. Overall HIGHLY recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!

Nestor was very punctual, extremely attentive to our needs and desires and was extremely knowledgeable. He helped to make our day quite special.

Our day long tour was fantastic. Nestor is incredibly knowledgeable and has an outstanding command of Mayan and Guatemalan history which he expertly weaves into the day. We had a last minute change to our schedule and he quickly accommodated us. Our day long tour included Antigua and volcanos, and throughout the tour he checked to be sure we were having fun. If you have a chance to visit this beautiful country you will love seeing it with Nestor. He is one of the best guides we've ever had. THANK YOU

We felt that Nestor was nice but not among the best guides we've had. We told him in advance we had 3 kids and he didn't do much to engage or interest them. When asked, he was willing to give lots of interesting info but didn't offer much on his own. Drove through Antigua not telling us anything till we asked. Hike was good and reasonably priced but not our greatest guided experience.

Nestor was exceptional. Antigua is a colonial city and hard to get around in a car. However, my brother who was with me and my husband, has trouble walking and couldn't handle the cobblestones. Nestor made sure we saw everything. He was prompt, friendly and very accommodating. I would recommend him for everyone.

Nestor is a fantastic tour guide. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, personable and with non-stop energy. Nestor had in depth answers on everything that came up including contemporary politics, socio-economics, and culture. We had a great time and would absolutely recommend Nestor for anyone visiting Guatemala. He was equally able to connect to adults and teens-- great in every way.

Nestor offered an ideal combination of knowledge, friendliness, flexibility and caring. Because one of the members of our party had some scheduling issues, we had to re-think our schedule and make a detour to pick her up. He couldn't have been more accommodating. He knows his way around Guatemala City and was able to minimize traffic delays caused by a demonstration downtown. At every point of interest, he answered all our questions and provided valuable insights into what we were seeing and its history.
