A Recent Review of this tour

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.
