Tour description

During this incredible experience , get to know the colorful towns of Antigua Guatemala, and visit the Chocolate and Wine workshop where you will be given an explanation of how they work in the colorful city of San Juan del Obispo. As well as a tasting of different artisanal wines and cocoa. In both places it is necessary to leave a tip to help the artisans of these picturesque places, and the growth of the community, to encourage them to move forward and contribute to their economy. In both places there is a store to buy wine and cocoa, artisanal is not mandatory but it is suggested to give tips to the small artisans! Thanks ūüôā

Then we will visit the colorful city of San Pedro. Las Huertas, known for its ultra-baroque church from the 16th century and its water tank, which is the largest in Antigua Guatemala. You will also visit a jade workshop where an expert will give you all the information about jade, which was very important for the Mayan civilization. D uring the tour we will travel by "Chicken Bus" so we will have to take public transportation from the bus terminal to get to these towns. It is really worth taking this tour because you will live a unique and unforgettable experience.


Places to visit during our village tour:
1) San Juan del Obispo
, its church, its chapels, the Francisco Marroquín Palace, Wine and Chocolate workshop.


2) San Pedro las huertas , its church, its huge water tank and a wonderful jade tour where an expert explains the entire jade production process.



IT IS A TOUR that is really worth it ! It is truly a unique experience ; beautiful that you will never forget! And you're going to value the only thing I need from you is time and the will to do it!

- Important! Put your correct phone number so that you can easily recognize me, for example your area code (your country) + your phone number, and that's it I can send you a WhatsApp,

- It is necessary that you confirm your participation in the tour in advance. This is a tour on the outskirts of Antigua.

THIS IS A VISIT OF WHAT THE ARTISAN PREPARATION OF COCOA WINE AND JADE IS AND AT THE SAME TIME THE ARTISANS OFFER YOU THEIR PRODUCTS AND IT IS UP TO YOU TO BUY THEM, IT IS NOT MANDATORY.!!


THIS IS NOT A "SHOPPING TOUR" AS MANY SAY IF I TAKE YOU TO THOSE PLACES IT IS TO LEARN THE WORK OF THE ARTISANS, IT IS NOT TO BUY OR BENEFIT ANYONE...


Meeting point: ‚úÖ in front of the Macdonals Antigua Guatemala Restaurant I wear a green jade necklace on my neck and a cap and my guide license, certified I will be outside, I only ask that you confirm your participation in advance. Thank you so much........

Pablo was clever, knowledgeable and made the tour fun. We enjoyed our visits to the vino, chocolate and jade family owned businesses. Nice to venture to areas of Antigua that are off the beaten path by camionetas (chicken busses). Highly recommend!
