Tour description

This is a personalized historical tour, you will visit the most important monuments of the city of Antigua Guatemala , learning about its history, architecture and very important data. You will learn about the different foundations of the city and its different transfers in the history of Santiago de Goathemala, important characters, as well as the different events that influenced it, its conservation process, the way in which it was declared a cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO, in 1979, the interpretation of architectural facades and much more.



THE TOUR IS ORIENTED ON HISTORY AND ARCHITECTURE. ONLY AN EXTERIOR VISIT OF THE MONUMENTS IS MADE AND WE DO NOT ENTER THE RUINS, YOU CAN DO THAT ON YOUR OWN! THERE IS A WALK THROUGH THE CITY WHICH LASTS 2 HOURS 30 MINUTES




THE TOUR STARTS AT 9:30 HOURS! If for some reason you don't come, I would kindly ask you to cancel the tour! Or notify me through the application or via WhatsApp, thank you!!!


I ask above all for punctuality, the tour starts at 9:30 AM so if for some reason you do not arrive on time, it is better to notify me or cancel since you are delaying the rest of the group... And you are delaying me!!




On my tour we didn't visit shops, no interior visits! Only. Exterior visits



The tour lasts 2 hours 30 minutes and I would ask you if for any reason you leave the tour to reward me with whatever comes from your heart, so that you value my work...




Bring comfortable shoes
Sunscreen
Cap





My tour is oriented on history and architecture and is very informative and detailed, focused on art history, please 🙏🏿 I would ask that you read the instructions carefully.



THE MAJORITY OF GUATEMALAN, WITH SOME EXCEPTIONS, ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND WANT TO RECEIVE THE SAME TREATMENT FROM TOURISTS,

This tour was fantastic for learning about historic and present architecture! I would highly recommend if that is your main focus. If you're looking for more of a storytelling history tour, I would suggest other guides with that specialty.

Pablo was a great guide. Even before the tour he sent through lots of recommendations for things to do in the city - including restaurants, cafes, bars, tours etc. He could not have been more helpful.
