Tour description

** LAST MINUTE RESERVATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED ** We will discover a bit of this city, where modernism has practically managed to cover the old buildings. Originally, the city of Guatemala was established in the year 1776, after it was transferred 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 is kept hidden. We will continue on 7a. Avenida seeing the building of the newspaper of Central America, the church of Calvario (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 ancient sites that remain, until we reach the church of San Francisco, we will see the building of what was once the post office and telegraphs. Then we will have a delicious coffee in an old house, which 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).

Armando fue un guía excelente, con mucho conocimiento y paciencia. Nos hizo un tour de casi 5 horas y nos enseñó muchos rincones escondidos de la ciudad. Lo pasamos muy bien. Habla muy buen inglés y sabe lidiar con grupos mixtos en los dos idiomas. Recomendaría que en el punto de encuentro tuviese algo más visible o alguna indicación más clara, pues el hotel es grande y hay mucha gente en la puerta. Héctor, la persona con la que se contacta por WhatsApp no es tan agradable, sus respuestas por WhatsApp son bastante secas. No obstante, Armando es tan agradable que hace que te olvides de las respuestas secas y parcas de Héctor.

I never have experienced this. I was waiting for an hour. Nobody showed up, even after reaching out to the guide. He saw my message, yet decided to not communicate anymore. After 2 hours I finally got a message back. And told me his phone was broke and the guide who worked for him didn’t show up. I was left with 2 taxitrips for nothing and I lost 1,5 hours, without seeing anything. Very disapointed. Lost trust.

Una grata experiencia de la mano de un nativo Guatemalteco. Te lleva por muchos sitios de la zona 1 y 10, y narra muchos detalles históricos. Si te gusta caminar para conocer una ciudad, 100% recomendado.
