About the Tour

** NOT A LAST MOMENT OR NEXT DAY RESERVATIONS ARE ACCEPTED **

We will discover a little of this city, where practically modernism has reached to cover the old buildings. Originally the city of Guatemala was established in the year of 1776, after it was moved to this place, from what is now Antigua Guatemala .

We will visit the best known points like The Civic Center, from where we will begin our walking tour, where you will find the beauty that is in it and that is kept hidden.

We will continue on 7th. Avenue seeing the building of the newspaper of Central America, the church of Calvary (a mixture between baroque and neo-classical), we will continue on the 6th. Avenue (the main one in the city), seeing the evidence of the few old places that remain, until we reach the church of San Francisco, we will see the building of what was the post office and telegraphs. Then we will have a delicious coffee in an old house that is the ideal stop, until we reach the heart of the city in El Parque Central, where we will appreciate the National Palace (offices of the President of the Republic)

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Camino Real zona 10, Westin Hotel

Hector was an excellent tour guide. My sister and I really enjoyed getting to take the TransMetro bus and learning so much about Guatemala City. Hector is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend taking any tour with him or his company. Thanks, Madison and Mackenzie
