Erwin is a wonderful guide! He responds wonderfully to the questions and wishes of his guests. He has a vast knowledge of historical contexts, architecture, economy and culture. He combines his knowledge excellently with current social issues and knows how to inspire his guests with these questions. The tour went far beyond a mere stringing together of dates. Thank you, Erwin, I would book the tour again anytime and can recommend it without reservation!

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.
