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.

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

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! It was awesome to share with you, looking forward to meeting with you in your next trip to Guatemala, best regards, Nestor

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 a great guide. He was informative and prepared. He explained many things to the kids about the volcano, rocks, and plants. He was very patient with my husband when he got long series of muscle cramps when we were on the way back down. I recommend him if you need English, have kids, or have the kind of health issues where you can hike the volcano but need to go at your own pace.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Elizabeth, I appreciate the review, enjoy the rest of your time in Guatemala.

This was an awesome hike/horse ride and Nestor was an awesome guide. Todd is handicapped and could not walk the hike so Nestor arranged to get horses for all of us to ride the volcano. Nestor pointed things out and explained things along the way. He patiently answered many questions and put up with our sometimes silly sense of humour. Nestor was very flexible and stopped in Antigua to show us other sights we were interested in. 5 stars all the way! Thank you Nestor!

Having participated on hikes where the rush is to get to the end, it was refreshing to have a guide like Nestor who went at my pace. He is knowledgeable, has a great sense of humour, and prevented me from offering myself to the Mayan gods.Pacaya is alive with new growth since its eruption in the spring, and since I came equipped with 2 dead camera batteries, Nestor lent me his camera and e-mailed me the resulting pictures.Pacaya is a beautiful climb, best done slowly, and Nestor is the perfect guide.

Nestor was a great guide! Our trip included a very comfortable ride up to the volcano, lots of background information about the area, and an exciting opportunity to climb Pacaya and experience its hot spots first hand. We would definitely tour with Nestor again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Aniz, I'm glad you guys had a good time in Guatemala, I had a really good time working with you and Nicole, best wishes for you both and we hope you visit us again.
