'Our guide seemed to know everyone which led to a smooth trip. Crossing the border between Guatemala and Honduras was like silk both ways.'
Antigua was enchanting! Our guide, Manuel, was superb introducing us to all the sights, cafés, restaurants etc. He was particularly helpful in Chichicastenango and the highlands.
All transports and guides were very good. Our guide in Ceibal Archaeological Site was awesome, and we had an excellent boat man on the Pasión River.
We had a fantastic holiday, felt safe throughout, and it was VERY well organized with transport, guides, hotels, …etc. Thank you for this amazing tour that you've arranged for us.
All the arrangements you made worked perfectly and there was never a moment when we were unsure of what was happening next. All the agents in Mexico, Belize & Guatemala were extremely professional.
