Got of to a slightly late start due to a "no show". Juan Pablo was an excellent tour guide, very enthusiastic and very informative. Could have done without the Artisan bazaar but the tour of the town was excellent. The jade factory was interesting and the lunch was very good and at a nice restaurant. Drinks were apparently not included but the Gallo beer was quite good. We paid in USD using the bills we had and were not offered any change. Glad we didn't only have a 20.

We were on our feet for hours in Antigua. So the tour should have had a few sit down breaks. Really too long a period walking through the town. Could have been 2 hrs. shorter.
