Estuvo muy bonito el recorrido por Antigua con Erwin. Tiene mucho conocimiento y te lleva a los lugares mas importantes de ésta linda ciudad explicando cada historia relavante al tiempo. También se conocen lugares de chocolate, jade y ron!

Mis expectativas sobre la recorrida y el guía fueron altísimas basado en los comentarios que había leído por aquí, pero Erwin sí las cumplió perfectamente. Era el día de Navidad y yo estaba la única turista, pero Erwin me llevó a todos los lugares, enseñándome sobre la historia y arquitectura de cada uno, y contestando todas mis preguntas, exactamente como la gente había descrito. Su conocimiento de la historia y arquitectura de la Antigua y Centroamérica es sobresaliente y su presentación es fascinante.

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!
