What to Expect
Begin your walking tour at the mermaid fountain in Antigua’s main plaza.

See the impressive ruins of the city’s main cathedral, affected by a series of powerful earthquakes like many of the other historic buildings in Antigua. Continue on to the elegant grounds of Santo Domingo, a one-time monastery turned luxury hotel and restaurant. End your tour at a local jade factory, where you learn about the history of this precious stone and its significance in Mayan culture. Your trip concludes back in Antigua’s central square.

We had a great time with Fernando/Orlando (sorry we didn't quite catch that!). He was very knowledgeable and passionate and seemed to genuinely enjoy answering all our questions. Our private tour (as there were no other participants) ended up taking over 4,5 hours!
