About the Tour

** LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED ** We will discover a bit of this city, where modernism has practically covered the old buildings. Guatemala City was originally established in 1776, after it was moved to this place from what is now Antigua Guatemala. We will visit the best known points such as the civic center, from where we will start our walking tour, where you will find the beauty that is in it and that remains hidden. We will continue on the 7th. Avenue seeing the building of the newspaper of Central America, the church of Calvario (a mix 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 are left, until we reach the church of San Francisco, we will see the building of what was post and telegraph. 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: Westin Hotel, Camino Real zone 10

Armando was a very helpful guide, who knows guatemala-city the best, as he worked there as a fireman. He marked out a lot of facts and a lot of places and was really informative! for us the tour took a little bit too long spotting out every public building, a concentration on zona 1 and market, which we liked the most would have been sufficient for us, but it is very detailed and armando manes the tour with a lot of love and passion and takes you to a nice rooftop and to a pub related to che guevara. Thank you!
