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.
Together with my father and brothers, we 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 in order to see them our itinerary is as follows:

Itinerary:

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.


Attention !


The Tour is free of reservation and cancellation, however, it is not a payment-free tour as the website advertises, we constantly train and invest in the platform so that you can be part of our event.

《All contributions are per person》.
The minimum fare according to GURUWALK is €10 up to €50.

Your miles are worth our knowledge, enjoy and keep learning like us!


What should you bring to the Tour? A lot of positive attitude and desire to learn about the history of this City, as well as a great desire to explore with your Guru the best that this beautiful place can offer you. If you are tired because your previous trip has been long, but you still want to join our tour, you are welcome, the only thing we ask of you is that you always be respectful at all times and be willing to learn about our culture in this beautiful country.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

OUR TOUR IS BASED ON RELEVANT HISTORICAL DATA OF THE CITY. ALSO, GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COUNTRY THAT IS RELATED TO SOME EVENTS THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IF YOU BOOK YOUR TOUR IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DISCOVERING AND EXPLORING THE BEST OF ANTIGUA, IF YOU BOOK IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE READ THE FULL TOUR DESCRIPTION .

"IF FOR ANY REASON YOU HAVE TO LEAVE, NOTIFY YOUR GURU AND NOT JUST LEAVE THE TOUR."


IF YOU LEAVE THE TOUR WITHOUT NOTIFYING, WE WILL TAKE IT AS A LACK OF RESPECT TOWARDS YOUR GURU AND ALSO TO THE REST OF THE WALKERS, ALSO, WE WILL REPORT ANY INAPPROPRIATE CONDUCT.

WE DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE UNDER ALCOHOL OR UNDER THE EFFECT OF DRUGS.

WE ASK YOU THAT, OUT OF RESPECT FOR ALL WALKERS, YOU DO NOT MAKE BAD TEST JOKES OR TALK WITH PEOPLE DURING THE EXPLANATION AS YOU WILL INTERRUPT THE TOUR.

THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.


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



We will do a tour only with prior reservation, please do not expect a Guru to be at the meeting point if you have not made your reservation. Thank you so much!.

Luis hizo un tour muy profesional y correcto. Fue amable y claro en sus explicaciones historicas y turísticas. . Quizás faltó un poco de empatía y adaptarlo más a un público más joven que era la mayoría. A los que hacemos los tour nos gusta también saber más as de lo cotidiano y personal de la gente incluido el guía además de los datos históricos. Pero a mí me gustó mucho en general. Hasta nos cantó una canción bajo el arco de la 5 avenida.

Very surprising and weard experience, which I had for the first time. We were informed at the begining that the minimum we had to pay was 10 euros. We didn't say anything, went on the tour which wasn't bad but took ages (1 hour longer), the guide spoke very quietly and it was difficult to stay focussed because it wasn’t interactive. In the end we paid and were told off for not paying €10 per person and that he would report us. So I wouldn't recommend the tour, the concept of free tours is to give you what the tour was worth and what you can afford.
