    Great day
    Transportation for the two of us from our hotel in Guatemala City was included. Our driver, Juan Carlos, was on time at 5:30 am, and was so kind, safe, helpful. (He stayed with us all day to keep an eye on the tour.) He drove a small Hyundai. After a good breakfast in Panajachel (included in the tour), we were led to the waterfront and loaded into a small, covered boat which easily accommodated our group, which turned out to be nine people. Our tour guide, Nicolás, gave us a short talk about the lake and villages and an overview of our tour. The boat took us first to San Juan. We were there about 90 minutes, first at a chocolate shop that included a demonstration of how they process chocolate there. The demonstrator followed us around at the end encouraging purchases. Next we went to a weaving co-op for another demonstration and shopping opportunity. (Both of these demonstrations are available to any tourist who walks in.) We were given a very small amount of time to look around the small town, which is extraordinary and well decked out for tourists. The boat then took us for a 20-minute stop in San Pedro, an unremarkable town. Our last stop by boat was Santiago, a great little town with a good view. We returned to Panajachel by boat and Juan Carlos drove us back to our hotel. If you can get yourself to and from Panajachel, you may be able to do all this on your own by hiring a boat at a significantly reduced price. Nicolás was good, but the amount of tour guiding he did was not worth the expense of the tour. He seemed invested in how much we bought, especially in Santiago, his home town.

    Excellent Service
    Great communication. Our driver was helpful, professional and very safe. Abel made sure we were comfortable. Fabio was incredibly helpful and great at problem solving when I made a mistake. Additionally, I was able to request kids seats, so I could feel safer traveling with my young kids. Price was good. Will definitely use next time I come to Guatemala.

    Helpful beyond transportation
    The best car service! The driver (Favio) was attentive, on time, and very helpful. He took the time to stop at plaves so that we cpuld take pictures with the beautiful scenary. The service provided child seats for our 1 and 3 year olds. When i forgot to leave the keys to our Air bnb the shuttle servicd arranged to have our keys returned to the Air Bnb with no extra charge. If you don't use this service you are doing yourself a diservice.

    Highly recommended!!!
    If you want to visit Guatemala and need guidance on where to go and what to do, look no further and book a tour with authentic Guatemala. I wanted to see places as much as I can in one week. Fabio arranged everything from airport pick up, to organizing tours in Guatemala City, antigua, atitlan and Tikal and booked me a tour to hike acatenango and fuego. Highly recommended! Thank you Fabio. Will definitely come back and use their services again.

    Amazing Tour!
    We had an amazing tour!! We have been to Antigua, Guatemala well over a dozen times and learned so many new things! The tour was private so the guide was really able to allow us to customize it a bit and he answered every historical and cultural question we had! Highly recommend this tour when you are in Antigua!!

    Great visit to the lake and surrounding small towns
    We were able to customize the trip a little, and our guide Gustavo was very flexible, knowledgeable, and warm. We met and interacted with locals- lending itself to a more authentic experience.

    Would recommend! Don't hesitate
    Fun tour but could use more communication about where we are going and what we are doing prior to doing it. That being said, I felt safe, loved the pace and the guides were very helpful. Transportation from Guatemala City was smooth and very comfortable. I will remember this trip for a long time and the unforgettable views and experiences like the lake views, the colour in the towns, and seeing Maximon!

    2 Weeks Tour in Guatemala
    We've been in a group of 2 parents + 1 adult child. We booked 2 weeks trip to Guatemala and Belize with Fabio. Fabio was attentive and did a great job in planning an unforgettable memory for our family. Our trip covered all main interest points in Guatemala and covered both nature and culture. Fabio added to our itinerary a magical, uncommon spots that without his plan we would probably never think to reach to. While arriving to Guatemala, we met out guide Gustavo, who was one of the best guides we've been traveling with. Gustavo is knowledgeable, has great English, friendly and passionate about his work! For sure, Gustavo added

    Amazing week long tour of Guatemala
    Fabio did an amazing job creating a custom week long itinerary for my family and I. All tours in Antigua, Lake Atitlan, and Tikal were excellent and also all transfers were very smooth. He really provided great support through the trip which allowed us to be flexible and make changes if needed. For example in Lake Atitlan we wanted to do a sunrise hike and combine it with some village visits, and he was able to organize a private tour for us that worked out perfectly. It was nice to have someone accessible via WhatsApp for any questions or trip concerns. I look forward to organizing more tours through Fabio.

    Unforgettable
    We had 11 enjoyable days in Guatemala. Trip was well planned and executed by Fabio from Authentic Guatemala. What made our trip unforgettable was our guide Gustavo Grajeda. Gustavo is friendly, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable on all things on Guatemala. We spent every day with him visiting various cultural sites including Tikal and a beautiful coffee plantation. Gustavo is passionate about sharing his love for his country and really impressed us with all of his stories. We can’t sing his praises enough.

I highly recommend the "Half Day Guatemala City Tour" with Authentic Guatemala!

Fabio Saenz was our tour guide. There were only three of us in the van, so it was a nice small group.

Fabio was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, personable, and spoke perfect English.

First we started out on a driving tour. He took us through the main zones of Guatemala City. As he was driving, he would explain what we were driving by and we were able to get out of the van a few times for pictures.

He then parked the van in a parking garage in Zona 1 (Zone 1), the Centro Histórico of Guatemala City and we did a walking tour of this zone. We walked the fun and chaotic shopping street of 6th Avenue....churches, markets, restaurants, and tons of people. We stopped in a bakery (panadería) to use the restroom and purchase some drinks and snacks. We also stopped in a candy store (dulcería) to try some traditional Guatemalan sweets. We watched guys play the marimba, ate granizados from street carts, and visited Plaza de la Constitución, Palacio Nacional de la Cultura, Mercado Central, Catedral Metropolitana de Santiago de Guatemala, and other historical sites. We ended the tour with an ice cold chibola of Gallo cerveza at Restaurante El Portal.

Thank you, Fabio and Authentic Guatemala for a memorable and fun tour!

My wife and I recently visited Guatemala City and found ourselves with an extra day but no plans. We contacted Fabio Saenz at Authentic Guatemala Tours and with little advance notice he was able to arrange a city tour the next day. Our guide, Monica, arrived the next day promptly at the appointed time in a modern mid sized car. Monica is a second generation tour guide following in the footsteps of her parents. From the outset it was clear Monica really enjoyed her job and the city she lives in. Monica was a wealth of information and provided us personal insights as well as historical background at all the places we visited. We had many highlights during the day but the Berlin Wall, the three level underground city market and the view from the rooftop restaurant are all favorite memories. I have no hesitation in recommending Authentic Guatemala Tours. Special thanks to Fabio for arranging the tour on short notice and especially to Monica for providing us with such a wonderful experience.

Monica was outstanding. We had just arrived in Guatemala and this was a fabulous way to start our journey. She took us to a breathtaking view point where we could look over the city and onto the volcanos in the distance. We got to see all different zones and areas of the city. We got to walk through the vibrant and lively market, have an intimate view of the cathedral in town and ate at one of the best rooftop bars around. The food was amazing. Monica was so well educated on the history and culture of her country. She knew many things about everything and we were blown away at her precision when mentioning dates and events. Overall a fantastic experience. So glad we booked it!

A most pleasant and personal tour of Guatemala City by Gustavo, a friendly and knowledgeable guide who loves his country and what he is doing. He drove us through the city, took us on an interesting walk in the center, and was patient with our questions providing a good local perspective and honest answers on history, politics, and daily life. He was patient and very kind with my 8-year old daughter. I wish we had Gustavo touring with us in Antigua and Tikal too. We are grateful.

The tour was one of the best I had while visiting Guatemala. My tour guide Gustavo was very knowledgeable about the culture and history of Guatemala and patiently answered all my questions. We got to visit many places around the city including an hour inside the government building (which was fascinating to see). I highly recommend this tour.

Fabio led our tour and he was incredible. He led us around parts of the capital and was able to explain a great amount of the history of Guatemala to us. I appreciated his kindness and ability to connect with everyone on the tour. He had some great food recommendations as well. Book and you will not be disappointed!

We had a fantastic day with Gustavo and cannot recommend him enough. It started with a drive from Antigua where Gustavo collected us from our hotel and transported us to Guatemala City. The 4hr tour was a mix of driving and walking with Gustavo saving the day with some ponchos to keep us dry. He answered all of our questions (we had many!) and made sure we had a great time in the city. He even manoeuvred through the horrible traffic to drop us at the airport at the end of our tour. We highly recommend Gustavo and the tour itself.

The tour was the right amount of time for a senior person. The tour was personalized to my physical limitations and preferences. I wanted a Spanish speaking guide and Roberto was the right person. He was knowledgeable and versed on Guatemala history. He kept the tour on track and on time. The driver Julio drove safely amidst the traffic and areas of interest. Both men were very polite and professional.
