Tour description

I would like to show you this beautiful city full of history. Come and enjoy a walk through La Antigua Guatemala , a museum city since there is a story to tell in every corner.

My tour begins at the Fuente de las Sirenas in the Central Park and from here we will visit the most important points of the city such as:

  • Sirens Fountain
  • Palace of the General Captains
  • Santiago's cathedral
  • Arch Street
  • Arch of Santa Catarina
  • Mercy Church
  • Jade Factory (Shopping Stop)
  • Union tank
  • Come and discover the origin of the name of Guatemala and its Mayan history included!!!

I wait for you all to make you discover everything that this wonderful and surprising city hides.

Important note

  • Remember to bring your mask and money for your souvenirs.
  • Tickets are not included
  • The tour is free of charge, so you choose the contribution to give to the guide, and the payment is always per person.

I ask you to be kind, fair and aware, we are independent guides, nobody else pays for our work, value our effort regardless of whether you like it or not, due to unpleasant experiences, if you leave the tour, notify the guide and leave the payment just before exit the tour.

I have been on some excellent free walking tours all over the world, but this one was not very interesting and focused on exploiting the tourists. Every place we visited was VERY touristy, and focused on trying to get the group to spend money, and not in a subtle way. The tour did not feel particularly authentic or unique, or reveal a side to Antigua I couldn’t have discovered myself. We spent about an hour at the jade museum, which was incredibly touristy, and another hour at a very expensive hotel. There was little information about architecture or history. We could have spent half the time at these places and gone to see more interesting or unique things about Antigua. In addition, my friend and I contributed about $15 USD for the tour, and the guide reacted with a displeased face and said usually people give more.
