Guatemala City Complete Day Private Tour
"Guatemala City is very under-rated as a place to see. It would be difficult to navigate this city and see all the sights the city has to offer (and which are horribly under-publicized) without a professional guide. The most important and interesting sights (the anthropology museum, the Relief Map, Kaminal Juyu) are scattered all over the city. Esteban was an excellent guide (and an excellent driver, although, by Latin American standards, Guatemala City would not be a particularly scary place in which to drive). Esteban did an excellent job of improvising and adjusting as the government has closed a few, very important sights (such as the anthropology museum) suddenly, without notice"..."

Iximche Ruins Tour from Antigua
"The tour to Iximche was great! My friend and I were picked up right in front of the hotel by the driver Miguel and driven to Iximche. We went early in the tourism season, so we were actually the only two in the van. When we arrived at Iximche, the guide was already there waiting and there were no other tourists, so we wound up having a private tour of the ruins. Our Maya guide was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and equally fluent in English, Spanish, and his native Maya language. He taught us a lot about his ancestors and culture as we walked through the ruins and then gave us free time to roam. Although the tour says the museum is closed on Monday, we went on a Monday and they told us the museum opened at 9 am. We walked through the museum where they had separate pamphlets in Spanish and English, but all the writing in the museum is solely in Spanish. I can read Spanish fluently, so it wasn’t a problem for me, but if you can’t, it’s still worth going through the museum to see the archaeological finds, which include human bones, Maya clothing, and tools they used. Overall, this tour was well worth the money and I highly recommend it."..."
