I enjoyed this walking tour. It was interesting, varied and Erwin kept it interesting. There was a lot of information provided too, which was good! I do recommend!

The tour guide wasn't the one listed here, even if he seems nice was a waste of time and energy because the information that he gave us was none, for example when he uses a date it was a random number and almost nothing real about the actual historical facts of the city. Really disappointed!

El Tour no ha Estado mal, pero el guía no es el que aparece y dudo que la persona que ha venido sea oficial del Inguat, como pone aquí. Creo que es algo que se debería avisar.

Erwin was a fantastic tour guide, speaking with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for city and country. We felt like we saw so much of Antigua and the many facets of it, old and new. No faults to point out, just be aware it takes close to 4hrs. Absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting Antigua.

No lo dudes: la mejor manera de conocer la ciudad! Tenía poco tiempo en Antigua y tomé la decisión de buscar un walking tour en Guruwalk. Hice la reservación para el recorrido con el guía Erwin porque el horario me convenía y la duración me pareció bastante buena, de un tour detallado y completo. Resultó que lo hice sola y estuvo aún más interesante de lo que yo podría imaginar. La atención brindada por Erwin y sus conocimientos históricos, arquitectónicos, culturales y sociales contribuyeron para que yo tuviera una imágen positiva y realista de la ciudad y del país. Había visto otros tours (la mayoría de los que se ofrece en la ciudad) de 1 hora y media. Erwin y yo caminamos por 3 horas y media!!!! Recorrimos museos gratuitos, el Mercado municipal, el palacio del Ayuntamiento, un sinfín de construcciones coloniales. Platicamos sobre todo, desde la llegada de los españoles a lo que hoy es Guatemala, hasta la situación económica actual del país. Y aún comimos juntos al final, en un lugar donde él suele comer a diario y que sirve una comida sabrosa y a precio justo. En fin, una experiencia inolvidable, genial y que se les recomiendo muchísimo!
