I volunteered near Semuc Champey for a few months before doing this hike. I met lots of tourists who raved about Quetzaltrekkers. With months of hype I thought the actual trek couldn't match my high expectations... I was wrong. It was very challenging, beautiful, fun and educational. I am a slow hiker and I was not accustomed to the altitude,... More

This was a well organized and awesome trip. I would definitely book another hike with Quetzaltrekkers, hoping to do the 6 day lake trip on my next visit to Xela.

I did the 6-day Nebaj to Todos Santos trek and I cannot recommend it more. It was by far the coolest and most unique thing I've done in Guatemala. I had never done a multi-day trek like this before so I was a bit worried, but the guides and our group went along at a great pace. There is a... More

I did the trek from Xela to Lake Atitlan. The hike was challenging at times but really rewarding. I absolutely loved it. The guides were amazing and went above and beyond for us. Hannah kept us on track and motivated, Eva had great stories to tell and a very welcoming personality, to top it off we had a third guide... More

I did the Nebaj-Todos Santos trek and had an amazing experience. The guides were very kind, supportive and knowledgeable about the landscape and culture we were trekking through. Beautiful walking was interspersed with stops to enjoy plentiful meals and talk about Guatemala's history and culture which was really interesting. It was lovely to stay with local families along the way... More

Loved our time hiking from Xela to Atitlan! Our guides (Hannah and Rihanna) were really nice and informative about the trek. It was a great way to meet other people and spend time exploring more of Guatemala (off the beaten tracker).

I went on an overnight hike with Quetzaltrekkers up Santa Maria and it was a beautiful experience! They were very organized and friendly and I would definitely go with them again on another trek. The food was delicious also!
