The original free local craft tour in the villages around Antigua
Hello everyone!! My name is Pablo I am a professional tour guide in Antigua Guatemala and its surrounding villages. I speak Spanish and English, I am 28 years old and I have been working in this industry for 6 years, doing historical walking tours that include visiting important monuments, ruins, and beautiful villages in the City of Antigua Guatemala. My experience doing these tours have been truly amazing and unforgettable because I have met a lot of people from all over the world, from different cultural and language backgrounds. So please join me and take a personalized and affordable walking tour that will be the experience of a lifetime for you and your friends!! I am looking forward to showing you why I love what I do! I'm so proud to be a Tour Guide in the most beautiful country: Guatemala, I'm in love with my country and all its beautiful places, art and history.
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 🙂
Then we will visit the colorful city of San Pedro. Las Huertas, known for its ultra-baroque church from the 17th and 18th centuries 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 is very important for the Mayan civilization. During the tour we will travel by "Chicken Bus" so we will have to take public transportation from the bus station 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.

- Mask is not mandatory, it is optional. 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 PRODUCTION 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...
