Good once in a lifetime trip

Great tour to see the Atitlan lake and some of the surrounding towns. The lake and scenery is gorgeous and worth a full day trip to see it at least once. It takes about 3 to 3 1/2 hours to get there with a breakfast stop and about 2 1/2 hours to get back to Guatemala City. It’s not to bad if you are traveling with someone. Watch out for the Shannon visit in one of the towns. He will try to hustle a couple Quetzal out of you for visiting the place of worship.

Thank you for your review. We terrible sorry about the traffic in your last visit to Atitlan Lake. Just letting you know that in the past months the new road to the lake was opened so now the horrible traffic in Chimaltenango`s town its over. We hope come and visit Guatemala again.

Lo mejor mi guía Elena

Tour muy normalito para el precio! En primer lugar me recogieron casi una hora tarde y tuve que ponerme yo en contacto con ellos para averiguar qué pasaba. Fue un problema en la carretera, ok eso puede pasar, pero la clave es informar, sobre todo cuando uno madruga y está esperando. Después de eso, y el tour especifica que incluye agua embotellada, pues nunca me dieron ni una simple botellita de agua, y tuve que comprar varias porque estamos hablando de un día copleto con 4 horas de coche más todo el día andando bajo el calor! Así es que muy mal por la organización. Lo mejor del tour fue mi guía maya Elena! Un encanto que me explicó todo estupendamente, involucrada en mi comodidad e intereses y me recomendó según mis peticiones. Un 10 para ella! Si no hubiese sido por ella le daría menos estrellas al tour! Gracias Las vistas del lago con los volcanes detrás sin duda son preciosas, pero los 3 pueblos que se visitan, al menos para pasearlos en un rato como se hace en el tour, salvo algunas tiendas bonitas para hacer compras y que te explican un poquito sobre el cacao y los tejidos y otros temas, pues no tienen nada de especial, pero eso ya depende del interés de cada uno.

Estimado Sr Antonio, Muchas gracias por compartir tu experiencia con nosotros. Queremos que se sienta cómodo compartiendo buenas o malas noticias con nosotros. Lamento mucho que su experiencia en nuestro tour no cumpliera con las expectativas. Estamos utilizando sus comentarios para hacer algunos cambios importantes como el asegurarnos de informar a los pasajeros con antelación si en dado caso hay algún percance en ruta y también lo importante de percatarnos que nuestras unidades tengan agua embotellada como prometido. Con respecto a Elena, ella es una persona muy servicial y estamos muy seguros que gracias a ella su experiencia de viaje en el Lago fue mejor. Con mucho gusto le haremos llegar sus comentarios. El Lago de Atitlán se presta para todos los viajeros, sus impresionantes vistas naturales con sus imponentes volcanes le da una perspectiva diferente al viajero, cada quien experimenta las poblaciones de diferente manera. Una vez más pedimos disculpas por los inconvenientes gracias a estos comentarios estamos seguros de que mejoraremos en el servicio al turista y a brindar mejores experiencias de viaje. Que tenga un excelente día.
