Tour description

"A day in Antigua"

Visiting Antigua Guatemala and exploring every corner becomes an unforgettable experience, even more so when you visit it with a Guatemalan who likes to share, learn and make new friends.

The City of Santiago de Los Caballeros de Guatemala, today called "La Antigua Guatemala", has been the scene of various political, economic, religious, and sociocultural changes. It was declared a "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO in 1979 and considered one of the most important cities in the country.
I like to make each tour a pleasant and interesting experience. Therefore, the tour that I offer you is based on the most emblematic sites of the city and to be able to see them our itinerary is as follows:


Central Plaza where you can appreciate the buildings that were built during the formation of the city and that today continue to be appreciated for their function, historical and cultural value.

Arch of Saint Catherine. The most famous avenue in the city, where you can find several food, drink and nightlife options, as well as several markets that show you local crafts.

Church of La Merced. This monument represents the art and architecture of the city at its best with a unique and unrepeatable design that shows the cultural shock of our country.

Other sites of interest that our tour may include:

Santo Domingo
Union Tank
Central Market
Lookout. "Cerro de La Cruz"
Jade factory and museum.
Artisan market

Likewise, our walk can include places that adapt to the interest of our visitors. At the end of the walk I can suggest some places to taste local food and drink.

So from now on, welcome to the City of Perpetual Roses! It will be a pleasure to be part of your experience in Guatemala.

The Tour is free to book, however your contribution is very important, we constantly train ourselves to continue enriching our knowledge and thus provide you with a better experience. 《All contributions are per person》. The rate is from €10 to €50 according to the satisfaction of each traveler.

Meeting point: In front of Café Batista located on the opposite side of La Plaza Central. I will be wearing a white t-shirt and will carry my Tourist Guide ID.

No es un freetour, es un tour con un precio fijo. Engañoso.
