Hi, I'm Juan Pablo, your Guru from Guatemala. I love history and being able to share my culture. I am a history teacher and have traveled to different parts of America and Europe. On these trips I have been able to compare and contrast the processes and the essence that unites us as humanity.

Guru spoke poor English. Information were chaotic and he didint really explain the history of city or county. Spoke random facts usually connected with architecture

El guía que reservamos no se presentó y le sustituyó un hombre, que aunque tenía buena intención, no se le veía profesional ni que se hubiera preparado el tour. Además nadie nos avisó de esta sustitución, si lo hubiesemos sabido, probablemente lo hubiesemos cancelado

Fun tour with lots of fun facts and interesting sights. Luis Fernando is quite a character and seems to know everyone in the area. Highly recommend.
