A Recent Review of this tour

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.
