Tour description

If discovering and exploring new places is your thing... we have a local bus adventure for you. This tour will make you feel the daily life of the inhabitants of these areas.

Traveling in these colorful collective buses is not only an adventure but also a unique experience as it will allow you to visit a Mayan village and discover their culture and tradition. Of course, the experience of seeing women making textiles by hand will be one of the attractions of the tour and you will learn the process of it.
As part of the tour we will also visit a beautiful lagoon in the same town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes and we will learn about the daily life of men and agriculture.

It will be a pleasure to mention what was the first Capital of Guatemala, since the bus tour takes us along that route and we will have the joy of observing it from the bus.
Welcome to an adventure and history tour with a local!

We really enjoyed our chicken bus and tuk-tuk experience. We had been wanting to go to the macadamia farm but didn’t know how to use public transportation here, so the tour helped us do both. Enjoyed the small group size for this very informative tour.

Fue excelente, don José fue puntual, amable y compartió información interesante y valiosa durante el recorrido. Fuimos a Santa María de Jesús en uno de los Chicken buses, pasamos al mercado, comimos, tuve una pincelada de la vida cotidiana de los habitantes de la zona. Y la oportunidad de asistir al tour del museo de jade en adición al otro tour fue una forma genial de terminar la mañana. Vale muchísimo la pena.

The chicken bus tour was really interesting, informative, and fun. Riding the bus was quite an experience and the town of Santa Maria was unique and charming. I really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend.

The guide cancelled the tour the morning it was to take place. If you book this tour I suggest you make a backup plan. From the reviews, this doesn't appear to be uncommon. I guess it explains the bad rating.
