Your certified guide will pick you up just outside your cruise ship, get you on board your air conditioned transportation and your fun exploration of the area in Guatemala begins.

As you head towards Antigua City, your guide will give you interesting information not only about the city but also his native Guatemala, the cultural and history. 
You will pass the beautiful countryside with views of the famous volcanoes. This excursion will have a lot of photo opportunities.

The tour ends sipping a cup of our best coffee, the genuine Antigua coffee.
