No better place to enjoy nature and the wonderful people.
Oct 2021
The support was amazing all the way till the end of the tours. Very knowledgeable guides throughout. The added bonus of a volcano erupting (mildly) was an added bonus. Atitlan is one of the most beautiful place I've seen (I have been to over 65 countries.) I would highly recommend this tour company without reservations. All my contacts were very enjoyable.

Excellent Guiding
Feb 2020 • Couples
Guatemala was much more than we expected. This was largely due to excellent guiding particularly Pedro. Most Everything went seamlessly. We had plenty of hiking which we enjoy. Pacaya Volcano was a real nice surprise. Will recommend Guatemalan Adventures.

Perfect private tour
Dec 2019
We used Guatemalan Adventure to define and organise a 10 days private tour for my family (couple + 4 adult children). First, they quickly responded to our email request and proposed a tour that we were able to adapt based on our preferences. On site, everything was perfectly organised. We had zero issue or delay. Davis was our private guide for most of our tour and he was great: very knowledgable, with a very good english but also easy going and fully flexible. I was also our driving us around in a very modern van. We could not have wished anything better. A lot of thanks also for Eva and Lorenn who prepared that tour with us. They are both very professional and very attentive to our comments. Finally, as I know some of my friends had concerns about travelling in Guatemala, I want to say that we all felt extremely safe, everywhere and all the time. Guatemalan people are very nice and friendly and we hope to come back very soon!!

Spectacular sights and service
Mar 2019 • Family
There were four of us in our party, two children ages 10 and 12. From the moment we were picked up in Guatemala City to our drop-off in Belize, we felt safe and informed. Informed on the sights, sounds, food and people of Guatemala. Our tour was pretty customized-we asked for a cooking class, and a Mayan Cave Ceremony and Eva found these options, which were spectacular. The tour guides (especially Miguel) was very kind and pointed us in the direction of some really good dining options. We tend to prefer casual spots and are not formal. The activities were fun (like Kayaking or horseback riding, hiking, zip-lining or making marshmallows) and the Guatemalans could not be kinder. We really got enjoy the sights and sounds...like a live volcano, crater lakes, or the rain forest. It was an active vacation and we enjoyed every minute. Eva is really special because she works very hard to co-ordinate travel to different locales, seamlessly and so the traveler has no stress. I cannot recommend this company enough for the quality of product and service.

Great experience from beginning to end!
Mar 2018 • Couples
Feeling a little overwhelmed booking my first international trip I decided to book the Best of Guatemala tour. I'm so glad I did! Lorenn was very responsive when I first contacted Guatemalan Adventure. There was someone waiting right outside of the airport when we arrived to drive us to Antigua. The tours were great and the guides, especially Josue, were friendly and informative. The hotels that were booked throughout were very good as well. Posada de Don Rodrigo (Antigua and Panajachel) was the best in my opinion. They provided free agua pura. The other hotels gave one or two small bottles of water in a room.
I would highly recommend booking through Guatemalan Adventure, especially if you like the idea of a structured vacation. The downside to that is that there's no down time. If you're the type that likes sleeping in on vacations then maybe book one or two day tours through them. (I suggest Lake Atitlan, Pacaya, Tikal and Yaxha)

Now, if I'm being honest I would say my rating is actually a 4.5 because on the second day the driver of the van we were in hit a dog which was really horrifying for me. But blame can't really be put on Guatemalan Adventure for that.

Best trip service in Guatemala - 5 stars
Mar 2017 • Couples
My wife and I had an outstanding trip to Guatemala
Lorenn helped us a lot during the planning phase, listened to our desires and requests and gave us best recommendations in all aspects: tour planning, locations, hotels, tome spent in every place and more.

Lorenn made all arrangements, best hotels pick up, transportation and guide.

We were lucky to have Miguel as our tour guide and driver. Miguel had very good knowledge in all areas and he was eager to share all his knowledge with us. in a very pleasant way. Miguel suggested more plans and was extremely flexible to accommodate any request we had.

I strongly recommend Lorenn's service
Wish we can visit Guatemala again soon and enjoy again their services.
