Historic Antigua Tour

Luis was my tour guide, and he had an in-depth familiarity with the religious history of the town. We walked to some key spots of the town (exploring everything would take several days), and Luis provided a rich understanding of every architectural element and history of the buildings. He also had great recommendations of other spots to visit around town.

Very interesting, informative and comprehensive city tour. Diego spoke English very well, answered questions and was a joy to be with during the tour. I highly recommend.

I was visiting Antigua for the first time and i wanted to get the most out of it. So I decided to hire a local guide and I’m glad I did! Diego Lee was my guide for the day and he did an amazing job! He took me all over the city and was very knowledgeable as he explained the history part of all the places he took me to. Highly recommend!

Louis my tour guide, picked me up from my hotel and took me around town. Louis was super nice and knowledgeable about the town's history. Would recommend if you have a few hours spend.

Guided tour to make sure you do not miss any of Antigua's highlights

The historic core of Antigua is only about five blocks by five blocks square (although some sights, such as Cerro de la Cruz, fall outside that square). You can walk and explore the city on your own. However, hiring a professional guide makes sure you do not overlook interesting sights (such as the historic outdoor laundry) that you might have overlooked walking around on your own. Diego customized the walking tour to emphasize what I had not seen walking around on my own the previous day. So this tour would be great either as an introduction to Antigua, or to fill in the gaps of what you may have missed walking around on your own.

Diego, thebguide, made this tour amazing. He was very knowledgeable, personable and had such passion for his city, it made the tour that much better. We saw both tourist, local and hidden gem sites that really added to the tour.

This is a MUST

Loved the whole tour. Do it the first day you arrive to get a lay of the land and an appreciation for the mostly turbulent history of this clean UNESCO designated city. Loved the Santa Domingo tour...guide pointed out many simple but significant things we certainly would have missed without his guidance and knowledge. Only reason the gave 4 stars is that his English was sometimes difficult to understand and the second half of the tour it poured rain ...but we continued on🤣 . He did offer to continue with a van but that’s no fun..

Eine ganz persönliche, wunderbare Tour

Pünktlich hat mich Diego an meinem Hotel abgeholt und mich gleich gefragt, welche Schwerpunkte ich auf der Tour setzen möchte. Das hat mir gefallen, weil mich eine Mischung aus Kunst, Geschichte, Leben der Einwohner Guatemalas, Essen, Getränke und Politik interessiert. Und Diego hat mir viel von seiner eigenen Familie und von Freunden erzählt, was sehr spannend für mich war! Ich habe außerdem viel über Politik, wie das Bestreben Guatemalas von den USA unabhängig zu sein, erfahren. Am Ende der Tour, die viel länger als geplant war, hat mir Diego noch gezeigt, wo man ein gutes Bier trinken kann und so habe ich auch noch einen tollen Markt in Antigua kennengelernt. Wir haben die berühmte Kirche Santo Hermano Pedro mit einem Gottesdienst besucht und nun weiß ich, warum die Türgriffe so hoch angebracht sind. Finde es selbst heraus!
