Cultural & Colonial Antigua Tour

You will meet your local, knowledgeable tour guide directly from your cruise pier and be taken to Antigua Guatemala. Once there, you will encounter your tour guide and begin your adventures.

As you make your way around the city, you'll discover that the Spanish Colonial style is present everywhere - houses, churches, and squares, to name a few.

During the 2-hour, easy walking tour, you'll pay visits to sights like La Merced Church, Santa Catalina Arch, Central Park (Parque Central) with its European style plaza, the Cathedral, and the Jade Factory - Museum. Be provided with free time for buying handmade souvenirs to take home memories of this special day.

Our guide spent a lot of time during the trip to the main city explaining the rural areas, volcanoes and culture which was enlightening. The walking tour of the city was great and very informative. The Casa Santa Domingo was an exceptional place. Just a very good tour…and tour guide (Abraham).

Our tour was almost private with just 1 other couple. Our guide was so accommodating to our interests. He even went back to a store for me to pick up a ring that got sized for me and brought it to the ship so I could get both the ring and get on my ship in time.

Loved visiting Antigua

Jose Emilio was a great tour guide. Well informed about his country and the historical aspects of Antigua. Buses were comfortable. We rode one one bus up to a meeting place and then we boarded a smaller bus to enter the old city due to the more narrow roads in the historical area. Passed by volcanoes, sugar cane fields, and towns from the port. I personally really enjoyed the meal at the restaurant. The order for lunch was taken on the bus trip up to the city and was ready when we were seated at the restaurant. I brought a jacket and was glad I did. I do wish that I had brought more cash for items being sold by local residents who had beautiful smiles and were friendly and somewhat persistent. I am persistent in making my living too. Their were some beautiful handmade woven items ( some machine made textile items as well) , stone and beaded necklaces and nice jade at the small Jade museum. Would love to visit again. Thank you.

Review of Antigua Tour
March 16, 2020
We found this excursion to be quite interesting and enjoyable. We weren't sure what some of the food was that we had in the restaurant, however. The beef portion was quite good. The coaches were comfortable and new. The guide was very good, and he gave us great additional information about the country.
